    5.2 edged to third slip, what a beauty from Southee! Started angling in and it was full too so he had to play. Only this jags away after pitching and Vijay was pushing at the ball just a little away from his body. But it was enough to claim the outside edge and Corey Anderson picks up a sharp, low catch 10/2
    4.5 he's been given leg before after shouldering arms! That is a pretty brave decision because it might have gone over the stumps. Violent movement in at Dhawan as this pitched on a good length and outside off. The leave was on, except this one came back in and clips him on the top flap of the front pad while he was not offering any shot. Umpire Davis' upraised forefinger condemns him to the dressing room 10/1
    22.3 caught down the leg side off another bouncer, the plan has worked! This time Umpire Davis has seen the batsman glove it down to the keeper. Brilliant short ball again as this was pushed in at the body, Pujara was lured into nudging it and even as he was was thinking about trying to correct himself, it is too late. Pujara looked behind, may have given him away 54/3
