    10.3 breakthrough! Cook goes well across his stumps, gets struck on the back leg whipping across the line and it looks pretty straight. Richard Illingworth gives it. Replays show it pitched just outside leg 54/1
    20.4 swept off the stumps, Hales gets a top edge that loops to short long leg! Big wicket for India and Jadeja takes another ODI wicket against England. Right off the toe I think this has come, gently looping to Ashwin on the 45 on the edge of the circle, he nearly let it drift over his shoulder but held a comfortable catch in the end 81/4
    10.6 cleaned up! Bell leaves a straight ball. A dream over for India. Was never a ball to leave, pitched on off stump, angled back in further and the ball smashes into the top of off stump 56/2
    13.4 and another! Hanging back proves his downfall. This delivery nips back off a length into Root and scoots between bat and pad into middle stump. Excellent from Bhuvi. 63/3
    29.5 slog swept off the stumps, not deep midwicket out but there is a square leg who comes around to take the catch. Morgan has been purring in the last few overs but got this too far up, he was reaching for the sweep slightly, couldn't send it far enough in front of square and gave deep square a chance which he took very well 119/6
    22.4 played at firmly on off stump and pops up a catch to extra cover! Oh dear England are sliding away quickly here, Jadeja again! Buttler playing forward on off stump, the ball gripped a little and spun away, taking the outer half of the bat and firm press Buttler applied sent the simplest of chances to Kohli 85/5
    32.4 down the wicket and fetches this out towards the deep midwicket boundary...oh what a catch! Held right on the edge of the rope, Stokes looked to have absolutely whacked all of that but just tugged it a little, the fielder set himself, and reaching behind him going to his right takes the catch with his hands over the rope but the feet safely in play, great catch 126/7
    35.3 big spin! That's a lovely delivery. Another England batsman left groping at spin. This one really gripped around off stump, spun sharply away, Woakes had dragged out of his crease and it was a simple stumping for Dhoni 143/9
    33.2 straight and plumb! Trapped on the back foot. The ball skids through a bit. Jordan could have walked for that one 128/8
    38.1 it's all over! Another sweep brings a fat top edge that loops towards midwicket. Ashwin makes it seven wickets for spin the innings. 161/10
