View dismissal GC Smith c Gayle b Mendis 15 21 1 0 71.42
8.1 Smith looked in trouble straightaway! He tries to force a full ball to the on side but the ball clips his pad in front of the stumps and lobs low to Gayle at first slip, Mendis goes up for the lbw and Mark Benson checks with his colleague if Gayle took it cleanly, replays confirmed that Smith edged the ball onto his pads, so he's out caught 70/3
View dismissal PC Valthaty c Sharma b Anureet Singh 5 7 1 0 71.42
1.6 nice judgement by Ishant at the boundary, it's short and wide and asking to be slashed hard but the upper cut fails to get the required distance, Ishant runs from third man towards deep point and hangs on to it 8/1
View dismissal RJ Quiney c Gayle b Sharma 6 2 0 1 300.00
2.2 over confidence! Ishant dishes it out wide outside off and Quiney tries to slam him square of the wicket but gets a thick outside edge to Gayle at first slip 14/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Yashpal Singh b Mendis 42 21 6 2 200.00
8.6 very poor shot by the well-set Pathan, he tries to slog him against the spin and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal takes the skier easily at point 73/4
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Yashpal Singh b Sharma 22 26 0 0 84.61
16.2 goes for a hug heave over the on side but mis-hits it, stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal fixes his gaze on the ball and takes the catch comfortably at short mid-off 112/5
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas b Anureet Singh 27 28 2 0 96.42

9.5 That's a stunner from the keeper! Rawat take a bow! Shukla makes room to crash it past the covers but only manages a thick inside edge, the ball dips on the keeper who moves quickly to his left and takes it one-handed on the slide, he's made up for dropping that skier earlier 67/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge c †Rawat b Patel 5 7 0 0 71.42
