    31.1 caught at short fine leg! Cook moves forward to sweep but gets a top edge that lobs tamely to Rahane in the circle. A simple catch and India have dismissed both the openers 172/2
    27.4 This could be curtains for Bell. Cook tries to nurdle Raina round the corner, and plays it straight to Rahane who is prowling at short fine leg. They go for the single, Rahane lasers in a good throw and Bell is short by a foot. The third umpire sends him on his way. 158/1
    43.5 caught at long off, that is a huge wicket for India with plenty of overs remaining. Pietersen lofted a full ball off the front foot but didn't hit it far enough. Kohli ran in a little from the boundary and took the catch on the move while diving forward 255/4

    41.6 Has Dinda taken the catch on his follow through? Morgan is waiting and the umpires ask for replays after conferring to check if the catch was clean. Morgan drove away from his body at a good length and slower ball and ended up hitting it back towards Dinda's left. The bowler grabbed at the ball with both hands and the ball lodged in his left. As he fell to the ground Dinda seemed to clutch the ball to his chest. That looks fine and Morgan will have to go. 248/3

    16.4 and there's the breakthrough for England, as Rahane lofts high to long-off! Tredwell tossed up, inviting Rahane to get forward, he tried to go inside out again but wasn't to the pitch and got too much underneath the shot. The run rate had slowed a touch and that looked like frustration, which is odd on this pitch 96/1
    18.4 gone, another one to Tredwell! This dipped a little, just enough to mean Gambhir wasn't quite in control of the shot as he tried to flick through midwicket, it sailed in the air and Bell was in place to take a simple catch to his left 102/2
    25.4 Kohli's tried to drive this length delivery through covers, took a step out and went hard at it, the ball used to race to the deep cover rope when he was in that insane form of his, now a thick edge has gone straight to the keeper 138/3
    34.4 well, if you stick to one line, be it down leg even, it can work in your favour ultimately, Yuvraj trying to paddle a quickish delivery fine, ends up spooning it for a dolly to short fine leg 198/4
    41.4 four for Tredwell, excellent spell, Dhoni not pleased, ball kicks from a length at Raina, who has moved across looking for the punch to leg, he has ended up spooning it to the bowler 243/5
    44.2 Dernbach, all those leg side gifts may be forgiven, for you have come up with a slower full delivery outside off, that Dhoni has scooped up straight to long off 271/6
    44.5 Jadeja goes, Dernbach running away with the game now, short again, tries to pull it, bottom-edge disturbs the stumps 273/7
    47.3 that will be it, Finn exults, Ashwin backed away to leg, it was a slow offcutter of a bouncer, Ashwin's thin edge of a flail ends in the keeper's gloves 297/8

  • New rules, old problems for India
