    7.1 Kohli attacks, whips the wrists... and picks out midwicket! The crowd noise drops as the captain heads off, golden-arm Moeen does the trick. That was struck very firmly but Morgan was alert and plucked the catch nonchalantly 55/2
    4.3 banged in short, Rahul goes to pull, gets in a tangle - and short fine leg pockets the top edge! Simple formula, simple catch, and England break through. Good pace, directed at the body and tucked him up 34/1

    12.3 bowled him, behind the legs! Stokes slips in an inch-perfect leg-stump yorker (that would of course have been fodder had Raina gone the other way)... The batsman had moved across, missed with a flick to leg and off popped the bails. Another vital breakthrough for England, checking the momentum 95/4
    10.1 short of a length, Yuvraj flails across the line... big, spiralling top edge... and Rashid comes up with it at fine leg! That's an excellent running catch, they'll check upstairs but the soft signal is 'out'... Rashid had to run in off the boundary and plunge forward, he got both hands around it as he went to ground and came up with the ball safely. Plunkett strikes first ball, too! The short ball does the trick 75/3

    13.2 rapped on the front pad, trying to play to leg - given! Think Pandey played his pad rather than the ball here, looked pretty good on line, just got tangled up with his shot. Struck in front of off, not much turn, probably would have hit middle 98/5
    16.2 banged in short, Pandya skies a top edge... safely pouched at deep backward point, Mills strikes! Had to swing for the hills but was done for pace trying to cut and it ballooned limply out towards the boundary. That is Mills' first international wicket 118/6
    19.4 pitched up, Dhoni hammers a drive, straight to extra cover... and Rasool is halfway down, Dhoni unmoving, Jordan completes the run-out! 145/7

    3.2 great comeback! Roy's fallibility to spin continues as he is beaten by some low bounce outside off, and slogs a loose drive into his own stumps! 42/1

    3.5 down the track and bowled him! Billings skips down to whip the spinner across the line, but ends up yorking himself as the ball drifts back into the toes. What an over! That's brought Kanpur to life again! 43/2

    15.2 a toe-ended slog down to long-off, and India have their breakthrough! Morgan wanted to finish this in a hurry, and why not? Chasing a ball that he was never quite to the pitch of, and a fine third-wicket stand of 83 comes to an end 126/3
