Extremely difficult, they pick three in the meantime

Unadkat to Patel, no run, pacy this time, banged it short outside off, Parthiv thinks of playing at it initially and then decides to withdraw but it just went past the outside edge, had him in a bit of trouble

Unadkat to Patel, OUT, Rajat Bhatia holds his nerve to take a good catch, Unadkat dropped short and Parthiv appeared to have made his mind up. He's thrown his wicket away here, came down the track and again tried to swing it over midwicket, miscued it and Bhatia ran back a few paces and clasped it close to his chest on the third attempt

PA Patel c Bhatia b Unadkat 21 (16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 131.25
