    2.5 Roy's game is over! He moves to the leg side and looks to drill this fuller delivery over the infield but is not able to get under it.. The fielder at cover takes a straightforward head-high chance 26/1
    9.5 Awesome catch by Rahane! He was at long-on and this skier was dropping towards the edge of the circle - where the advertising is placed on the outfield - and for a moment it looked like it was going to drop safely, but Rahane covers a lot of ground and dives forward to pick up a stunner. Hales was looking for his second six of the over 75/3
    3.1 another catch at cover! This one is the cloned sheep! The batsman comes forward and pushes at this length delivery a bit too early, lobs it up for Rahane again. Easiest of chances 27/2
    11.4 slogged! But this is a top-edge.. It's Raaaayudu this time. The fielder runs in from deep midwicket and slides under it. Karn gets his first wicket. 85/4
    19.2 he is not able to get under this low full toss this time! Still, he times it so well that it travels quickly to long off. Another catch for Rahane, who makes it look simple 166/6
    17.1 oh he gets a wicket off a poor ball! This is a low full toss and Buttler doesn't get the timing he would have wanted as he clobbers it to the leg side, it settles in the hands of deep midwicket fielder 130/5

    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
