    5.2 big big appeal. No, says umpire Joel Wilson. Was it caught? Kohli had taken that. Kohli reviews. Flat on off and middle, Tamin gets right forward and inside-edges the ball into his front pad. The ball then lobs up towards Kohli at gully, who takes the ball and appeals. The umpire will have to overturn his decision. Some have been turning, some haven't in this innings already. That one didn't. Kohli was particularly adamant that the batsman had hit that, asked Saha for confirmation and went for the review. Good assertive captaincy. 11/1
    21.6 gone! Perfect length outside off, comes forward to defend, playing for slightly more turn than there was. Ends up defending with a slightly open face and it rolls off the outside half of it to the right of Rahane at slip. He takes it excellently, it was going quick, and he falls to his right and grabs it one-handed 71/2
    24.1 and strikes immediately! Mominul doesn't really get in much of a front-foot stride, and that is a good thing sometimes when you're guarding against lbw on a slow pitch. But Ashwin isn't aiming for lbw here. He floats it up on leg stump, and Mominul's short stride finds him a long way from the pitch of a ball that turns sharply, and his attempt at a defensive push results in an outside edge and another catch for Rahane at slip 75/3
    76.3 found long leg with a top-edged pull. What's with Ishant and short balls? This originally doesn't look threatening, which is why Mahmudullah sets up for the pull, but then it climbs on him, cramps him for room, and so he mistimes the shot. Who knew it'd be the quicks doing the damage on the last day of a Hyderabad Test? 225/7
    37.3 that's the bulls-eye, you know Jadeja's accurate and here is proof. There's a little patch of rough on a good length outside the off stump and he absolutely nails it. There's a massive explosion of dust, as the ball lurches at Shakib, who despite being deep in his crease, is undone by the turn and bounce, hits the top glove and goes to short leg. Smart catch as well, from Pujara 106/4
    52.4 that's one shot too much. Ashwin has sensed that the batsman wants to attack him, so he pulls the length back just enough. Disguises it though, by ensuring it is still a tossed up delivery. Mushfiqur rushes down the track, doesn't get to the pitch, still backs himself to clear mid-off, but mistimes his shot badly. Easy catch to the fielder running back and Ashwin celebrates by waving both his hands in the air to soak in the applause from the school kids 162/5
    70.4 traps him in front of the stumps. Erasmus gives it lbw, but Sabbir wants a second look, goes for a review. This looks plumb though, unless there's bat involved. And there is nothing there. This is a good length ball, pitching outside off, coming in with the angle, stays a touch low, and beats the batsman's straight-bat defence. Should he have been playing back? Well, considering the ball didn't rise as much as he thought, he couldn't have done much with it 213/6
    90.4 given caught behind and Mehedi is walking off. Massive turn and bounce with the new ball. This is quick, pitching just outside off, and ripping away past the middle of the bat as he tries to defend. Top take from Saha, rising up with the ball, his gloves at his chest when he takes it. Was there an edge though? Needs confirmation from technology. And Ultra-edge says there is glove. That's why the batsman didn't review 242/8

    97.5 ooof, this is a top-edged pull and two fielders are getting under it, neither is backing out, and both of them grab at the ball. Luckily for India, Rahul clings on despite the interference from Vijay. The best reaction to all this comes from Jadeja, who just goes down on his haunches and slaps his hand to his forehead, laughing uncontrollably. 249/9
    100.3 tosses it up, massively, and Taskin tries to flick, seems to miss the ball and opens himself up for an lbw appeal. Umpire Erasmus says wait, and then goes to check with his partner. Finally, he tags in the third umpire, and the soft signal is out. No bat there, so the catch should go out the window. They don't check the lbw though, not out flashes on the screen. But wait, Kohli has reviewed for lbw. So two reviews for the same ball. Pitched in line with leg, straightens enough to hit the front pad in line, and crashes into the stumps too. Three reds. India win 250/10
