    13.1 Cummins gets his man. This is a beauty. Vijay pushes at one outside off. The length ball holds its line to take the edge through to Wade. This time he appeals 46/1
    13.6 Pujara is out the only way he looks like he can get out. They have been taking these singles all along. Pujara drops this forward of point and sets off. Then he stutters mid-way. Rahul stops too. Then they go ahead with the run. Maxwell charges in from point, and knocks the middle of the middle stump out with a sizzling direct hit. Pujara is gone 46/2
