    17.2 and now he swings across the line. Why? That went through with the angle, and he would have been okay looking to hit straight again, but he went across the line and missed, and the ball crashed into the stumps 98/2
    7.1 gone! That was the full, wide tempter, curling away late, and Bravo throws his bat at it hard, gets a thick edge, and Dhawan takes a simple waist-high catch at first slip 34/1
    22.3 oopsy, he's gotten overambitious again! Looks forlorn as he skews the ball straight into long-off's hands. That's the second time a wicket has followed a six with the batsman looking to repeat the previous shot. Bravo sized up another flighted delivery, but this was drifting away a touch to ruin his timing 120/3

    45.4 low full toss on off stump, Ramdin gets down on one-knee to slog it away. He wanted midwicket, but the bat face opens on impact and instead he finds long-on. Jadeja is a safe pair of hands in the outfield 285/4
    47.3 137 kph, middle and leg goes for a toss! Pollard, why would he go for a lap sweep? Well, possibly because there was no-one at fine leg. Either ways. he's more powerful down the ground. And this wasn't the ball to get cheeky. Only manages to give free passage to the ball as he gets down on one-knee outside off 296/5
    47.6 full on off stump, he gets under the ball, a little too much actually. Slices it up into the air and Virat Kohli at long-off steadies himself under and reverse-cups it cleanly 298/6

    8.4 oh there's a run out, both batsmen at the same end! Rahane tapped the length ball on the pads between short fine leg and square leg, they took the first run quickly and Rahane wanted the second so he continued to run hard while Dhawan went back after taking a step and both were at the keeper's end, Rahane has to go back. The throw was at the keeper's end but Ramdin quickly threw it to Rampaul at the other end 49/1

    28.4 misses again and he's bowled this time! It was pretty slow through the air on length on the off stump, but Dhawan was feeling the pressure and went for the slog-sweep down on one knee, missing the ball completely which didn't turn and knocked the off stump 134/6
    9.5 this one straightens and Kohli's gone! He bowled it with the angle from outside off, it held its line a bit as Kohli went on the back foot to defend with an angled bat and the outside edge flew to Sammy at wide slip for a low catch near his right foot 55/2
    15.5 oh dear, he's rushed down the track and miscued a swipe to mid-on. He's showed some good timing till now and he seems to know it as he walks back, head thrown back, but this time he has looked to force a drill down the ground. To horrible effects 82/3
    16.2 knocks it onto his stumps and Bravo pulls out the aeroplane! This was a good length ball in the off stump channel. Raina got forward and drives away from the body, a bit of a lazy shot that as the ball pings off the inside edge and onto his stumps. A little chest-thumping time for Bravo. 83/4
    25.1 middle stump is knocked back! Thats why people cry for yorkers in this format. It wasn't the perfect one though, more a fuller ball. But it was angled in at Dhoni. He had to quickly adjust from looking to flick to blocking the ball. But isn't able to, plays around it and is bowled. Sammy wheels away in celebration 114/5

    30.4 he's struck again, what a match Samuels is having! He's bowling like a frontline spinner. He gave some flight outside off, Bhuvi pushed at it with an open face and the ball didn't turn, so took the outside edge to go straight into Sammy's hands at first slip 138/7
    34.3 that's like an offspinner at 108kph and the umpire's given him lbw! The slower delivery pitched well outside off and turned in sharply right towards the stumps, Mishra was bamboozled and hit on the front pad in front of off and middle. Looked out, given out. The ball even went on to hit the the base of off stump but the bails didn't budge 146/8
    35.6 another one falls, Mohit tries another big shot but holes out! It was full and nipping in towards off, Mohit went for a lofted drive without moving his feet and a leading edge flew high in the air and straight to third man 155/9
    40.6 it's all over, finally! The yorker from Rampual wraps it up, he pitched it right on the base of leg stump as Shami made room and missed it 197/10
