    4.1 the change of pace has done the trick. This is slower and just a fraction wider, Kohli steps out to go over the top but had to reach out for it, and simply ended up dragging it to long-on. Big, big wicket. Stunned silence. 30/1
    17.2 struck that really well, but picked the lone man at deep midwicket. This was a slower deliver, Rahul read it off the hand, set himself up to muscle it towards the big boundary there but hit it straight to the man. End of a super knock from Rahul. 125/4
    7.4 the old-fashioned slog sweep, but he didn't get any power behind that, partly because he didn't get underneath the flight. Remember these are big, big boundaries, and he ended up hitting the googly straight to Jordan at long-on. Excellent from Rashid. 56/2
    10.3 the umpire raised the finger even before Moeen could complete the appeal. Yuvraj got into a mess again, was off balance when he completed the sweep. This one drifted back in, straightened and would have crashed into middle and leg. Make that middle of middle 69/3

    18.5 got him, another slower delivery. Pandey was backing away to hit that over cover, but the ball dips with the angle, beats his swing and shatters the stumps. Tough day at the office for Pandey. Didn't get going at any stage. 139/5
    19.6 drags it back onto the stumps. Jordan ends a cracking last over. Bowls the knuckle ball at length outside off, Dhoni looked to fetch this from way outside off over the leg side, but only managed an inside edge that bounced onto the stumps 144/8
    19.3 unfortunate way to go. Pandya drills this down the ground, the ball smashes into the stumps at the bowler's end and deflects to Jordan, who is alert enough to uproot the stump. The more important thing from India's point of view is Dhoni will have strike. 143/6
    19.5 pulled from outside off towards deep square, Dhoni had turned for the second even before Mishra completed the first. Moeen knew the right end to throw, lobs it on the bounce to Jordan, who breaks the stumps. Mishra had already given up and had turned towards the pavillion 144/7

    3.2 leading edge, and Raina takes a dolly at mid-on. Two in two and the roar in Nagpur tells you the story! Looked to work it to the on side but looked like the length ball stopped on him to take the leading edge. Raina was never going to drop that. Looked like Roy was surprised by the spongy bounce. India are back in this 22/2
    3.1 what was he thinking? Gives him the charge, Nehra sees that and bangs this short, Billings was cramped for room, beaten for pace but still went through with the pull, only to get a top edge to Bumrah, who settled underneath it coming in from fine leg to complete the catch under pressure. Nehra points to Kohli, who is pumped. Big wicket! 22/1

    19.1 appeal for lbw, and that's a wicket that will breathe life into the Indian cmap. Looked like an optimistic appeal but the umpire raised the finger quickly. Root tried to pull across the line when he could have simply tucked it to the leg side. Looks like there was an inside-edge. Root unlucky 137/5
    10.1 heaved into the leg side and Morgan has found the man at deep midwicket. As simple as they come. It was the off break again, Morgan ended up dragging it from outside off and Pandya took a dolly. Mishra jumps in joy. Wonder if the two-three minute break between play had anything to do with the dismissal. 200th T20 wicket for Mishra 65/3

    16.5 slower and fuller on middle, Stokes looks to heave this into the leg side but was way too early into the stroke. Once he missed it, he was absolutely dead. Is there life in the game yet? 117/4
    19.4 rattles the stumps. This one's a length ball that is angled in from wide of the crease, Buttler looks to pull but the ball hurries onto him, cramps him for room, skids on and deflects of the pad onto the stumps. The danger man is gone, the crowd erupts 138/6
