O'Brien to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir gets into the act now, does a trademark shimmy down the track, moving towards the ball, carves it square for a boundary

India 25/0   G Gambhir 6* (6b 1x4)   IE O'Brien 0.5-0-6-0

NL McCullum to IK Pathan, FOUR, Irfan continues in the same vein as his brother, he charges down the track and lofts Nathan down the ground for only the second four of the innings

India 96/6   IK Pathan 10* (11b 1x4)   NL McCullum 1.1-0-23-1

Butler to Raina, FOUR, french cut from Raina, it was overpitched and just outside off, Raina went for the booming drive, gets a thick inside edge and it races past the keeper for a welcome boundary for India

India 128/7   SK Raina 41* (35b 1x4 3x6)   IG Butler 4-0-29-2

O'Brien to Raina, FOUR, stunning timing from Raina to bring up the 150, very full and at least a foot outside off, Raina was backing away, he just opened the face of the bat to steer it square of the man at the third man

India 150/7   SK Raina 58* (40b 2x4 5x6)   IE O'Brien 3.5-0-35-2

Southee to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, smart work from Harbhajan, he walks across the stumps and paddles it fine, fine enough to beat the short fine leg and run away for four

India 158/7   Harbhajan Singh 17* (20b 1x4)   TG Southee 3.4-0-38-0

Southee to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, this was much shorter from Southee, Harbhajan thrashes that past midwicket to get himself consecutive boundaries

India 162/7   Harbhajan Singh 21* (21b 2x4)   TG Southee 3.5-0-42-0
