    9.2 does him in flight! Excellent bowling from Cremer. Loops it up to draw Rahane onto the front foot and think about hitting against the turn. And then a hint of turn and the slow pace of the deck takes care of the rest. Leading edge loops over to point 82/2
    6.6 moves in line with the stumps, nudges to midwicket and takes off. But this is a direct hit, and Vijay looked like he was short. Sikandar Raza is the man who gets to the ball quickly, takes aim at the bowler's end and nails the throw. Looked the only way they could upset the two batsmen and it's happened. Vijay is gutted to give it all away like that, didn't think he really thought he was in much trouble. Was he taking it all a bit too easy? 64/1

    15.2 slower ball magic. Pandey was looking to smash this as well, but is found short because there is absolutely no pace on it. He was looking to find the sightscreen, instead he slices the ball off the bottom of the bat to long-off 127/3
    17.3 full and wide outside off, Jadhav tries to get under it and slice it over the three men square on the off side. Doesn't get enough power behind it because it comes off a bit slowly. Hami M completes a simple catch 150/4
    19.1 starts off with a short one, Binny swings hard. But he doesn't time it. Big hit is comfortably taken at deep midwicket. Slower balls people, slower balls for the win 166/5

    9.2 hes been sweeping quite well. But with pace off the ball, and him getting under the ball a bit too much, Hami M has guided the ball down the throat of short fine leg 64/2
    8.1 excellent take from Pandey running to his left from long-on. Chibhabha ran down the track to smash it down the ground. But he gets it off the very bottom of the bat. Too much height, not enough power. Pandey covers a lot of ground, slides as well, keeps his eyes on the prize and wins it 55/1
    10.5 pops a simple little catch to short midwicket. Its a short ball, he could have picked his spot. But instead he forgets to keep the flick down and throws it away 68/4
    9.6 through him! Thats the arm ball from Axar. Skids through before Chigumbura knew what was happening, middle pole out of the ground 66/3
    15.6 made his intentions a bit too early by running down the track. Axar bowls the flatter ball, cramps Raza, who tries to defend. Offers a gap between bat and pad, the ball hurtles through and knocks leg stump 90/6
    13.4 terrific work from Mohit! Had one stump to aim at from deep midwicket, was put under pressure by the batsman going for a couple. He was throwing off balance as well. But despite all that he hits his mark and finds Ervine well short. Originally seemed a pretty neat flick, got it past the infield and had hit it soft enough that the second run was on. Then enter Mohit 82/5

    17.4 instant relief for Mohit. Its the fuller, slower ball on off stump. Cremer goes for the slog too early. Misses. Bowler hits 98/7
