    0.5 Ashwin gets a wicket too. Cook wants to finish it off in a hurry, jumps out of the crease, the ball is tossed up slightly wide, he can't reach it, is beaten by the turn, and is stumped. Only the second time he has been stumped in his career. Finally he took it easy then 4/1

    3.2 that's another wicket. Ojha has bowled really well here. Arm ball or natural variation? Doesn't matter. That's the easiest lbw decision an umpire can hope to make. Trott pushes forward, playing for the turn, the ball skids on after pitching just outside off, and hits him in front of off and middle 7/2
    4.2 Oh boy. There are things happening here. Is Eden up to its magic? Lovely catch by Dhoni. It is game on here. Offbreak, turning in, Pietersen defends, the ball doesn't turn as much as he expects it to, and the outside edge settles inside Dhoni's gloves 8/3
