Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

9.6

Boult to Gambhir, OUT, Boult strikes! Poor shot by Gambhir, Boult got this one to holds its line after getting it to move in, Gambhir attempted to dab it down to third man, not the wisest choice of shot, no foot movement and a thick edge to van Wyk

G Gambhir c †van Wyk b Boult 22 (44m 36b 4x4 0x6) SR: 61.11

India 49/1   V Sehwag 23* (24b 4x4)   TA Boult 4-0-16-1

14.3

Bracewell to Sehwag, OUT, Sehwag's luck runs out! Poor shot really, Bracewell bowls it short of a length and gets it to come back in, Sehwag tries to dab it away behind the wicket and gives catching practice to Guptill at second slip, neat catch though

V Sehwag c Guptill b Bracewell 47 (71m 41b 9x4 0x6) SR: 114.63

India 77/2   CA Pujara 4* (10b)   DAJ Bracewell 2.3-0-25-1

34.5

Boult to Tendulkar, OUT, Boult gets the Big Fish! Middle stump pushed back, full credit to the bowler here, it was exactly like the previous ball, landed on middle and off and nipped back in off the surface, Tendulkar was trapped at the crease and didn't have time to react as the ball skidded through and pegged back the middle stump, he crouched down after he was beaten

SR Tendulkar b Boult 19 (86m 62b 2x4 0x6) SR: 30.64

India 125/3   CA Pujara 32* (70b 3x4)   TA Boult 9.5-0-37-2

68.1

Martin to Kohli, OUT, Kohli falls to a poor shot! Three of the four wickets so far have been gifts. Not very different from Sehwag's dismissal, Kohli was looking to cut, the ball kicked up a bit more than he expected, he was trying to slash it over the slips but it went at a comfortable height to Guptill at second slip

V Kohli c Guptill b Martin 58 (143m 107b 8x4 0x6) SR: 54.20

India 250/4   CA Pujara 95* (163b 13x4 1x6)   CS Martin 13.1-1-47-1

72.4

Patel to Raina, OUT, New Zealand sneak in another! Patel bowls from round the wicket and slides it down the leg side, Raina shuffles and tries to work it with the angle down to fine leg, thin edge and van Wyk snaps it up, the keeper knew instantly, not the best ball by Patel but he'll take it

SK Raina c †van Wyk b Patel 3 (25m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

India 260/5   CA Pujara 102* (177b 14x4 1x6)   JS Patel 20.4-5-41-1

115.4

Patel to Pujara, OUT, His vigil ends at 159! End of a terrific innings, after defending Patel Pujara decided it was time to push the pedal, down the track and tried to clear long-on, miscued and he knew he didn't connect properly, Franklin back pedaled at mid-on and took it easily

CA Pujara c Franklin b Patel 159 (468m 306b 19x4 1x6) SR: 51.96

India 387/6   MS Dhoni 68* (129b 6x4 1x6)   JS Patel 31.4-8-73-2

121.1

Patel to Dhoni, OUT, it's another giveaway, Patel's collecting the gifts. Tossed up outside off and inviting the big shot, Dhoni was forward and looking to slam it over mid-off but he ended up hitting it flat to Bracewell at mid-off

MS Dhoni c Bracewell b Patel 73 (210m 147b 6x4 1x6) SR: 49.65

India 411/7   R Ashwin 18* (15b 3x4)   JS Patel 34.1-8-87-3

124.4

Boult to Khan, OUT, 136 kph, that's a very sharp catch by van Wyk! That was too good for Zaheer, in fact even a top order batsman would have been tested by that, Boult switched to over the wicket, bowled it on the channel on the off stump, Zaheer was half forward to defend but was beaten for pace slightly, thick outside edge goes towards first slip but van Wyk decides to go for it and plucks it one-handed

Z Khan c †van Wyk b Boult 0 (16m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 414/8   R Ashwin 21* (28b 3x4)   TA Boult 25.4-4-88-3

133.1

Patel to Ashwin, OUT, Patel gets the better of him, he fires that quick - 95 kph - on seeing Ashwin advance down the track, it was flat as well and Ashwin ended up yorking himself and missing it, van Wyk whips off the bails with the batsman yards out of the crease

R Ashwin st †van Wyk b Patel 37 (78m 54b 5x4 0x6) SR: 68.51

India 430/9   PP Ojha 0* (25b)   JS Patel 40.1-9-96-4

134.3

Bracewell to Ojha, OUT, appeal for a run-out here and Yadav may be in trouble! He is short of his ground, Ojha pushed the ball wide of the bowler and in front of mid-off, Ojha set off but there was a lot of confusion in the calling, Yadav then had to scamper to the other end because Ojha was going through with the run after all, Martin fired the throw to van Wyk whoflung himself to his right to break the stumps, Yadav was just short

UT Yadav run out 4 (6m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 438/10   PP Ojha 4* (28b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 19.1-1-88-1
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
