2.3

Ashwin to Kohli, 1 run, down the wicket to drive this to deep cover

3.4

Morris to Kohli, no run, good bouncer. Head high. Kohli is beaten on the cut. he want a wide call, but doesn't get it. Rightly so

5.1

7.1

Bravo to Kohli, no run, bowls quick, shortish, angled across. Beats Kohli, who is charging at him

7.2

Bravo to Kohli, no run, and again. That angle is working. Kohli looks to open up the leg-side field this time, but is beaten by a short delivery angling across

7.3

Bravo to Kohli, SIX, Kohli makes the adjustment. He has been beaten twice going across the line so he waits for this to angle away, gets under it, and drives it over mid-off for a flat six

7.4

Bravo to Kohli, no run, and Bravo beats him again. He is going across him, bowling short. Kohli tries to drive. Hang on, there is a sound as the ball passes the bat. Bravo appeals, Dhoni doesn't. Not given

7.5

Bravo to Kohli, SIX, and this time Bravo bowls full. Not a yorker. Just full. Easy to get under it. Kohli sends it flying over deep midwicket. That's fifty for Kohli

7.6

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, another length ball, and this time Kohli hasn't got all of it, but enough to send it wide of long-on for four
