View dismissal M Vijay b Jadeja 42 48 34 5 1 123.52
10.4 bowled him! Saw Vijay step away to make room for the inside-out chip over the covers, and he dragged his length back a bit and got it to turn just enough to go past the edge and hit middle stump 91/2
View dismissal M Vohra c †Karthik b Jadeja 38 36 23 4 2 165.21
8.2 first an aborted appeal, then a bigger one, and the finger goes up. This one skids on from back of a length, and Vohra, looking to work that through the leg side, gets an inside edge into his pad. Jadeja was appealing for lbw at first, but he realised the batsman had hit that, and then he appealed for caught behind as DK ran to his right and grabbed the ball that had popped up gently off Vohra's pad 78/1
View dismissal DA Miller* b Bravo 15 22 10 1 1 150.00
11.6 now he's top of the pile all by himself. It's the slower yorker, that's a bewitching, dipping delivery that Miller plays across and all around. Stunning way to get to 300 T20 wickets, absolutely top delivery 102/4
View dismissal GJ Maxwell b Bravo 2 6 4 0 0 50.00
11.4 yorker, pinpoint, and it crashes into the base of middle and leg as Maxwell, looking to make himself room, misses the ball, looking to stab it through point 101/3
View dismissal WP Saha c Jadeja b Bravo 20 41 25 0 0 80.00
19.3 another slower ball, back of a length, and Saha can't get any power on his shot as he clears his front leg and clubs over the top. Hits it straight to deep midwicket 157/5
View dismissal MP Stoinis c Finch b Bravo 33 39 22 4 0 150.00
19.4 slower length ball on off stump and now it's Stoinis' turn to hole out. Looks to make swinging room and launch it down the ground, and can only hit it down the throat of Finch running in from long-on 157/6

View dismissal AJ Finch st †Saha b Sahu 74 58 47 12 0 157.44
11.5 he's walking. That was an excellent bit of bowling. He's achieved turn by bowling it slower, and he's done it again. It drops on a good length outside off, shorter than Finch expects as he stretches out to it, and all that stretching leaves him far out of the crease when it turns past his defensive bat, and Saha completes the stumping quickly and efficiently. Finch is livid with himself, throwing his gloves down as he crosses the rope on his walk back 117/3
View dismissal BB McCullum st †Saha b Sandeep Sharma 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 stumped, off a fast bowler! That was excellent stuff. We all knew McCullum would jump out of his crease at some point, and Sandeep pulls his length back just a bit and gets the ball to shape away. McCullum pokes at the ball, which swerves past his outside edge, and he's stranded a long way down when Saha whips off the bails 1/1
View dismissal SK Raina* c Johnson b Stoinis 20 23 9 1 2 222.22
5.3 slower ball and Raina holes out! He had stepped away from leg stump, looking to make room to hit over mid-off or extra cover. He had to reach for the ball, and played too early, and ended up scooping it to Johnson running back from mid-on to complete a very well-judged catch 52/2
KD Karthik not out 41 62 26 7 0 157.69
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (Johnson) 8 16 12 0 0 66.66
14.3 Johnson to Karthik, a run-out! Back of a length, angling into off stump, and DK tucks it into the leg side and takes off for the single. He barely gets any wood on the shot, and it's only dribbling by the side of the pitch, and Johnson sprints through in his follow-through and kicks the ball onto the stumps at the keeper's end, finding Jadeja well short of his crease 133/4
View dismissal Ishan Kishan c Sharma b Johnson 11 10 8 2 0 137.50
16.5 down the track, stepping away from leg stump to make some room. Johnson fires it full and wide, making Kishan reach for the ball. He goes after it, slices it high in the air, and Mohit Sharma takes a simple catch at backward point, but only after juggling it a couple of times. That ended up stuck in the crook of his elbow. 151/5
