    3.3 that is a bizarre shot on this pitch, Vijay's been bowled trying to reverse sweep. Maxwell pitched the ball on off from round the wicket and spun it back into Vijay, who then tried to reverse sweep. The ball beat the bottom edge of his bat, passed under his arse and hit the stumps 19/1

    23.6 lbw! Kohli has to go. He played forward and across the line to one that pitched in line and spun back to beat the bat and hit the pad. He was well forward. Would that have missed leg? It's a tight call, a fair one in the end. 123/2
    25.3 lbw! Tendulkar's fallen to Lyon for the second time in the game. The ball was fuller and Tendulkar came forward to turn the ball on the leg side. It hit him in front of middle after pitching just outside off and the umpire took his time before sending him on his way. 127/3
    26.4 caught at deep midwicket! India losing wickets in a hurry now. Rahane stepped out of his crease, wasn't to the pitch of the ball, but went through with his slog anyway. He mis-hit it in the air, and Lyon had to run a fair bit from the boundary to take the catch. A poor debut for Rahane, he's better than the shot he played today 128/4

Match Notes

  • Rahane has steel - Dravid

    Rahul Dravid has said that beneath his understated demeanour, Ajinkya Rahane has developed "real belief" in his ability and is forcing his way to be counted among the leading batsmen in the current India middle order
