    26.4 another appeal to umpire Kulkarni by Benn against Rahane, who misses a sweep this time, hit below the knee roll, just outside the line of off, and the ball is spinning further away, Rahane has been done in by the combined pressure of the two appeals on umpire Kulkarni 142/2
    11.3 the short ball has worked, because this time it has pace on it! This was hot at 136 kph, it rose up around his left ear and India have been pulling and hooking all morning. So Dhawan doesn't hold back, mistake there. Gets a top edge and offers a simple catch to deep square leg 70/1
    49.6 the innings ends with a run-out.. Kohli misses the yorker but takes off for a bye.. Unlike Russell, Ramdin releases the ball early and Holder does the rest 330/6
    44.4 the guide to third man does him in! And in other news an offcutter works! Gets a little more bounce off the deck after the seam hits it and takes the outside edge rather high on the angled bat and Ramdin dives to his left to pick up a smart catch. 280/3
    46.3 this is not sloppy! Pollard takes down the stumps with a flat throw from long-on and Dhoni could be in trouble.. Yes.. this is brilliant work from the fielder now. It was driven firmly straight down the ground and Pollard had to quickly move to his left. 290/4
    47.2 catch has been taken people! Jadeja gets a low full toss but he slices it to mid-off. Easy chance really.. They could not have messed that up. The umpire wants to check for the no-ball but there is no luck for Jadeja 300/5

    1.6 India are not going to drop these skiers! Shami settles under this cloud-burster and takes it comfortably at mid-on. Smith, again, looks to pull one that is not so short, ends up getting a big top edge. 1/1

    20.2 sinks down on one-knee as he realises he has dragged the ball onto his stumps. These darts as his best weapon and it fools Bravo into thinking it was shorter than it actually was. Looks set for a swipe, but it skids on, deflects off the thigh pad and onto leg stump 83/3
    10.6 Bhuvi puts an end to Pollard's misery, with a perfect outswinger! It pitches on off, doesn't swing like a banana, just jags away enough to catch the outside edge which is gobbled up at first slip by Dhawan 27/2
    48.1 clears his front leg to crack a full ball over extra cover, but he misses and Shami hits. Timberrrr! So a very tumultuous game comes to an end in an immensely emphatic fashion. 271/10
    27.1 he never stays down too long. Has Ramdin holed out on the square leg boundary with an innocuous little delivery. Essentially it is just a good length ball on middle, it invited the slog sweep but Ramdin should have added a lot more power than he should have 120/4
    27.4 double-strike! You cannot keep Jaddu out of the game. He gets a good length ball to skid on quicker. Bravo expects turn and plays outside the line, which means his pad is right in front of middle and leg stump. And that is what the ball hits. Easy decision 121/5
    35.1 oh that goes nowhere! Sammy opened his stance and wanted to whack it somewhere, but Akshar pushes this one quick, and short, towards Sammy, cramping him for room. Sammy goes through with his lofted shot, but gets hit high on the bat.. manages to lob it back for the bowler. Akshar is a tall guy, takes a simple overhead chance 165/6

    40.5 it all ends with the stumps being splayed! It's a length delivery aimed at the middle stump, but Russell, who was hitting it so well down the ground, looks to play a cheeky late cut and misses.. loses the middle stump 222/7
    43.3 oopsy, he has carved a full toss to Raina at extra cover. Holder's game is more about touch and this equation was asking him to play a very different one. Clears his front leg away and looks to clear the off-side infield, but he has miscued it 239/8
    46.3 off stump cartwheeels. Dhoni tends to it as he comes up to celebrate. Ravi Shastri liked it too, judging from his applause. This was a good length ball on off stump, Taylor backed away to try and smoke it over the covers. Misses, Shami hits 260/9
