6.2

Sangwan to Rahane, 2 runs, lucky Rahane, this is pitched up, on the stumps, and Rahane goes for the wild slog, which goes to the right of Bhatia at square leg. He goes one-handed, and drops it

Sangwan to Rahane, 1 leg bye, pitched outside leg, beats Rahane's defence and appeals unsuccessfully for the lbw. One leg-bye nonetheless

12.6

Sangwan to Rahane, 4 byes, beats batsman, keeper, third man and fine leg with a slower ball.
