    3.2 Patel deliberates for a longish time if he should review this. I could lip-read him asking Rahane, "Aawaz aaya?" [Was there a noise?]. After much discussion he walks back. Here is what happened. This was short of a length, wide enough for Patel to try that whiplash cut again. The thin edge was taken, and England were spontaneous in their appeal. Given out. Rightly so. Whoa! HotSpot shows no edge! Snick shows one, though 30/1

    18.5 Kohli won't be running too many for Rahane. Ajinkya looks for the straight loft that he has played so well so far, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball here, and doesn't get optimum elevation. Swann takes a smart, overhead return catch 143/4
    14.2 Superbly timed again, but he finds the fielder again. This time on the full. Dravid clears the front leg and looks to slog-sweep this full delivery, but doesn't get under it. Anderson takes the catch at midwicket 109/2
    16.6 this is half mis-hit, half hung in the wind. Charges at Swann and hits this into the wind towards long-on, and finds Bell to perfection 125/3
    22.1 Stokes makes amends for that misfield. Raina gets too much under this length ball, trying to clear deep square, but the leading edge seems to have touched the moon and come back. Stokes at deep square keeps his eyes on it, and has to dive forward at last moment to complete the catch. What a cameo from Raina, though 182/6
    20.3 Helicopter. Crash-lands in Bell's lap. This is inches short of yorker, Dhoni tries the trademark whiplash flick, is too close to the pitch of it, ends up skying it to long-on 164/5
    22.4 Bell has been absolutely sensational at long-on today! Tiwary clears the front leg and lofts this down the ground. Bell runs to his left making good ground, and then makes the dive in front to finish this ripper of a catch 186/7
    22.6 slower short ball outside off, Kumar is well early into the shot, they try to sneak in the bye, but Kieswetter runs Ashwin out 187/8

    6.2 Vinay finds a perfect response to Jayesh! Kieswetter has given England a brilliant start but just pushed at the wrong line here and was struck flush on the knee-roll in front of off stump 67/1
    10.4 got him! Ashwin breaks through! A very ambitious drive from Bell picks out the one man close in on the off side - Virat Kohli - and the wicket gives India a glimmer. Bell had looked in fairly serene touch and hadn't had any trouble picking the gaps - until that shot 105/2
    18.4 Ashwin strikes again, but is it too late for India? Bopara jumped out of his crease and set himself to mow down the ground, but couldn't quite get to the pitch, didn't pick the carrom ball, and ended up slicing across the ball to present a swirling chance to Kohli 165/3
