View dismissal P Chopra c Young b Nuttall 52 133 104 5 1 50.00
33.2 captain Young's moment of fame is here, and he will be remembered for years to come. Chopra lofts it to what he thinks as a gap at wide mid-on. Young runs across and dives at the last moment with the left hand reaching out. The elbow grazes the ground and it is a miracle that he doesn't let go of the ball. Amazing catch! 132/2

48.3 what a phase this is! The lower order collapse comes back to haunt India. they lose three wickets in four balls. Ravikant plays all over the fuller ball on the off stump, and misses.
