    1.2 flatter and quicker, bowled behind his legs! Rahane got too far across, he was aiming for the same part of the ground, mistimed the shot and it skidded through to clatter leg stump 10/1

    10.1 straight on a length, Dhawan aims leg side, misses and loses his leg stump! So the change works for England, they needed a wicket badly. Nothing special about this, just a slog across the line and a total miss, the ball hitting the top of leg stump, Dhawan was trying to whack that miles 89/2

    14.2 short ball, Kohli was coming down the wicket, tries to hook, gets it high in the air and is taken at deep square! Huge strike for England. Kohli in absolutely no control at all of the stroke, lobbed it up, deep square charged in a held a very good catch sliding forward 131/3

    16.5 beauty, spearing yorker that cleans Raina up! That is perfect, some in drift right onto the base of the stumps, Raina too slow to get down to it, the ball flicks his left heel and knocks out leg stump. That is how to bowl a yorker 145/4

    17.4 clears the front leg and tries to clear the leg side, nothing like a proper connection, it rolls out to deep square and oh dear, Jadeja wants a second that isn't there in a month of Sunday's, sent back from Dhoni, the throw comes into the bowler's end and Jadeja is easily run out. Never a second available, Dhoni with the correct call and Jadeja throws his wicket away, bonus for England 153/5
