    25.6 that's the first breakthrough, Rahane edged one to cover! Incoming delivery towards the stumps and Rahane closed the face of the bat early, the ball ballooned off the edge to cover for an easy peasy catch 112/1
    33.3 nearly dropped near the boundary, but taken! Vijay lofted the ball very high as it came in, he didn't swing the bat all the way and Waller came under it early, got into position and caught it only after the ball popped out of his hands once.Vijay is very disappointed with himself 159/2
    41.6 tries to go for a six on the leg side and he's taken! He came down, heaved the length delivery from leg stump but Waller took a comfortable catch at deep midwicket, a few yards inside the boundary 203/3
    42.3 Tiwary goes as well, straightforward catch to short fine leg! Tiwary shuffled towards off with a step down and flicked the ball late on leg, but straight to Vitori 205/4
    45.5 what a yorker, the crowd erupts, Madziva is running around! Uthappa looked to play it off the front foot as the ball came in sharply and knocked the off stump over. Sent it for a walk actually. Umpires check for a no ball and it's fine 233/5
    48.4 full toss, Binny smashes it down the ground but doesn't get enough and Raza takes an impressive catch at long on while diving forward 264/6
    49.1 Madziva has his third wicket, top edge from Jadhav after he came to the off side for a wild slog, and the ball went high just behind the stumps on the off side. Enough time for the keeper to come under it 266/7

    5.1 gone, Vusimuzi hands it straight to the fielder! It was pitched up, he drove on the up off the front foot and gave a straightforward catch to point 24/1
    31.1 oh looks like he's run out with a direct hit! Sikandar went deep in the crease to turn the ball to midwicket and said no only after taking a couple of steps. Chamu had come way out of the crease by now, nearly haflway down, and his dive also could not save him because of Rahane's direct hit. Jinxy the cat 130/5
    8.5 not this time, gets the edge and he's caught behind! Lovely seam position of the ball, facing the slip, shapes away from the batsman as he opens the face of the bat for a single catch to the keeper 31/2
    10.6 stunning catch from Jinxy cat! Elton stayed back for the short of length ball as it shaped away, poked and get a thick edge towards second slip actually and Jinxy leapt like a cat to his right to grab that with both hands. Umpires checking for no ball, and if the catch is clean. Not a no ball, and the umpires checking if the ball touched the ground when Rahane landed after his inter-galatic leap. The ball was mainly in his right hand when the elbows hit the ground and looks like some fingers were under the ball. Elton has to go back 43/3

    24.6 it's gone through to knock over the off stump! Axar got this one to turn in as Sean came forward to work it to leg with the spin, but he played the wrong line as the ball pitched just outside off and turned in sharply to go through the gate 95/4
    31.5 he's edged, he's dropped, no he's taken in fact, umpire says no but he walks! Sikandar cut off the back foot as the ball came in, got an edge and the ball lobbed off the keeper's pads square of the wicket and Robbie dived to his right to catch that. Umpire didn't move but Sikandar walked back 132/6
    44.3 can't make it three in a row, but holes out! He did connect much better this time, slammed the full delivery down the ground but only found Axar at long off for an easy catch 184/7
    46.2 that's one more wicket, and another good fielding effort by Rahane! Graeme pulled the back of length ball and mistimed it, making the ball lob towards extra cover and Rahane took a few steps before diving forward to his left for a sliding catch with both hands. Jinxy the cat 195/9
    44.5 looks like a run out! Graeme creamed the ball straight to cover, Rahane collected and threw it quickly to the bowler's end, that too with a direct hit. He's been superb in the field today, Jinxy the cat 186/8
    48.6 that's it, taken at mid-off, and India finish it off. It was pitched up slightly, Donald chipped it down in the air and Axar had to dive forward to get his hands under it. Good catch seals the series win 209/10
