8.1

Ablish to Kohli, no run, gets some bounce on this back of a length ball outside off stump, he comes forward and pushes it away to point

8.2

Ablish to Kohli, FOUR, lovely use of the angle, Virat gets one coming in from wide of the crease, and wrists it over mdiwicket, just sent the ball in its way with a quick twirl

8.3

Ablish to Kohli, no run, bowls this one straighter and still fuller, he pats it back to the bowler

8.4

Ablish to Kohli, 1 run, tucked away off the pads through square leg

8.5

Ablish to Gayle, SIX, Gayle has no love lost for Ablish, gets underneath a slower one, and lifts it high over wide long on, there is no getting away from him

8.6

Ablish to Gayle, 1 run, if that had been middled, either it would have taken Ablish to the straight boundary with it, or the ball would have cracked in to two, fortunately the big man does not time it, and gets a single towards long on

10.3

Ablish to Kohli, 1 run, slower one, he allows it to come on and pushes for a single towards covers

10.4

Ablish to Gayle, FOUR, full toss, Gayle hammers it, it is hit so hard that it bursts throgh extra cover's hands. bowler thinks it is fielder's fault for letting it go, fielder thinks why did he have to get in the way

10.5

Ablish to Gayle, FOUR, no one needs to take blame for this one apart from the bowler, low full toss on the stumps, Gayle makes enough room to swing the arms and belts it straight past the non-striker

10.6

Ablish to Gayle, FOUR, even an outside edge gets him four, it is pouring boundaries, Gayle pushes at one going across and it is too far from Gilly's dive
