    16.6 caught at slip, something had to give, loose shot from Gambhir, lovely delivery from Boult shaping away from the left-hander, Gambhir was attempting a brave dab to third man with the slips cordon packed, tame outside edge to Taylor at first slip 83/2

    11.5 an anticlimax indeed, Sehwag seemed determined to launch Patel down the ground and out of the attack, danced down the track for the loft, missed it completely and the ball hit the off stump, Patel rewarded for flighting it 77/1
    39.3 Flynn pulls off a stunner! Game on here, Patel tossed it up on the off stump, Pujara was forward but didn't cover the line, the ball hit the edge, then lobbed off the pad and Flynn who was fielding at forward short leg had to run backwards, he kept his eyes on the ball, set off from his position quickly and timed his dive to perfection 158/4
    34.4 timber! Three innings out of three for Tendulkar, Southee brought this one in to the right-hander, the scrambled seam, Tendulkar was playing across the line and the ball clipped his pad and flattened the middle stump, Tendulkar was quite frustrated with himself, he raised his bat at the stumps and then suppressed his anger 152/3

    43.1 rush of blood from Raina and he too perishes! Patel is so much more effective when he tosses it up, Raina like Sehwag was down the track in a flash, he made room as well and the ball landed on middle, held its line and pushed back the middle stump 166/5
