    39.5 aaaand he's gone. Rohit makes room to go over cover, maybe, but it was too close to him for that and he hit it straighter than he wanted and it dropped straight into long-off's waiting hands 269/4
    2.1 bowled him! Excellent delivery, angling across towards the top of off stump, and maybe there was a tiny bit of inward movement. Dhawan, no footwork, looks to dab it down to third man, and only manages an inside edge that hits his pads and rolls into the stumps 7/1
    4 gone! That's very full outside off, almost yorker length, and it swings away late as Kohli pokes at it and takes his outside edge and Afsar Zazai takes a lovely low catch behind the wicket, diving to his right 16/2
    28.3 Gone. Direct hit, run out, bye bye. It's back of a length outside off and Raina hops across to defend into the on side. They go for the single and Nabi swoops on the ball from short midwicket, picks up and flicks it underarm in one motion, beats Raina by a fair distance, as replays confirm after they go up to the third umpire 174/3

    46.1 and there ends a scratchy innings from Dhoni. Comes down the track and goes hard at the length ball on off stump, went too hard at it, I think, and didn't time it at all, went high in the air and dropped into long-on's hands 322/5

    4.4 gone. It's back of a length outside off, a bit of extra bounce, maybe. Too close to cut and he gets a thick outside edge, close to the shoulder of the bat, through to Dhoni 30/1
    20.3 ha ha, what a dismissal that is! Goes for a big hit and doesn't quite judge the length right. Ball turns and he sends it soaring high in the air over the on side. Dhawan, running back from short midwicket, and Umesh, running in from long-on, converge on the ball. Dhawan is quicker to it, dives, gets it in his grasp, but spills it when his elbows hit the ground. Then he manages to juggle it while sliding forward, once, twice, and then into Umesh's waiting hands. Brilliant work there from Dhawan. 93/2
    36.4 off-stump yorker and Dhoni goes up for the catch as he tries to steer it away to third man. The umpire had a bit of a think and then gave it out. Was it a bump ball? Nope. It pitched full, close to the bat, and went straight off the outside edge to Dhoni. End of a good knock from Mangal. 160/5
    35 slower ball on off stump, and that's a good catch from Shami. He didn't quite middle it again but the mid-on fielder still had to jump and reach overhead to grab it while running towards the boundary 153/3
    35.4 and he's gone. Down the track again and Ashwin holds this back a bit, bowls it slower. Zadran swings through the line too soon and it drops and turns past his bat. Dhoni has the simplest of stumpings to make 158/4
    45.2 all kinds of comedy here. It's a slower ball outside off and he waits and dabs it away to the left of short third man, who dives and deflects it towards fine leg. Shenwari ran for the third but Zazai did not, and both were stuck at the batsman's end, where the throw came in. By the time India had ferried the ball to the other end to complete the run-out, Shenwari had continued running, all the way to his dressing room 199/7
    39.4 boom. Down the track, looks to hit inside out, misses, and when the batsmen miss, Jadeja usually hits 169/6

    48 and that's another loopy delivery, very full, and Ashraf swings across the line and misses. Off the back pad and into the stumps 206/8
