11.2

Starc to Dhoni, no run, length ball outside off, left alone

11.3

Starc to Dhoni, 1 run, driven away on the up, and the sweeper-cover does really well with the bad bounce on this patchy outfield

12.3

Hogg to Dhoni, 1 wide, pitches middle, turns in sharply, past leg, called a wide, Hogg is not happy

12.3

Hogg to Dhoni, FOUR, they are not picking the googly. Tossed up on off, Dhoni throws his hands at it, gets a thick edge, past slip. Gets four for it too

14.4

Hogg to Dhoni, 5 wides, that's a bad delivery. Length ball, on leg, turning sharply in, for five wides

Hogg to Dhoni, no run, no clue about that googly. Pitched on leg again, he plays for the turn, and is beaten comprehensively by the away turn

14.5

Hogg to Dhoni, no run, no clue about the googly again, and even though is short, all he manages is an edge to point

14.6

15.5

Cummins to Dhoni, no run, another dot. Short of a length, quick, on off, no room, pushed back to him

15.6

Cummins to Dhoni, OUT, pressure of dot balls there. This is a wide half-volley, might even have been called wide had he not driven at it. No feet means he is reaching out, and manages just a limp hit straight to extra cover

MS Dhoni c Bailey b Cummins 15 (21m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

India 104/6   MS Dhoni 15 (21b 2x4)
