19.4

Singh to Kohli, SIX, Kohli joins the party, this is short, because he is not reputed to play the bouncer well, but he rocks back and pulls it sweetly over midwicket

19.5

Singh to Kohli, 2 runs, length ball, Kohli goes leg side, gets a leading edge, but no one wants to catch the skier at cover, neither Ojha from mid-off nor Harris from sweeper-cover

Singh to Kohli, SIX, and what a way to finish, another length ball, and flicked over midwicket, not much back lift, no follow through, sweet timing, RP has been dismantled in this over
