Kumar to Rahane, FOUR, shortish and outside off, once more Rahane jumps down the track shuffling towards the leg side to make more room and chops it towards extra cover for four

Kumar to Rahane, FOUR, poor delivery that, slanting down the pads, fine leg was up, easy for Rahane to help it down to the fine leg boundary

Kumar to Rahane, no run, full and angling across, Rahane can't get bat on that as he looks to push that towards cover

17.5

Kumar to Rahane, 1 run, a full toss on leg stump, Rahane presents a straight bat, lofting it over the bowler's head, not too powerfully hit though, long-on can come around

17.6

Kumar to Hodge, 1 run, more powerfully hit this time from Hodge, making room and carving a length ball towards sweeper cover, can't get his placement right though, so he can't find the rope
