    9.2 Parthiv has fallen within jim's range, tried to drive on the up but seemed to check the followthrough in the end, the ball went low to Sammy's left and the captain does extremely well to get a hand down and manage to hold on, holds up the ball for effect too 41/2
    5.4 it is over for Manoj Tiwary, he has looked very nervous out there, and another of those prods has done him in, Sammy pitched it up, close to off stump, leaving the batsmen who pushed at it with an open face and the edge was gobbled up by Baugh, Bravo looks relieved 20/1
    20.6 stumped, was bowled flat and a little wider, Kohli made room to drive it through the off side, it turns away and misses the bat, Baugh collects well and takes off the bails in no time, good work with the gloves, Kohli has to go, his foot was in the air, big wicket 82/4
    16.3 that is the end of Badrinath;s struggle, the short ball has consumed him, Russell has been bending his back to get the short one to climb up, this one was angled down leg, Badri got too far outside the line again and wen for a half-hearted pull, and only ended up gloving it towards Baugh who took a superb one-handed catch 62/3
    30.6 Rohit undoes all the good work with his version of the slog sweep, ball turns away from around leg, bounces a bit, and the resulting top edge swirls in the air, Darren Bravo is under it, and he manages t hold on, Martin is smiling widely 124/7
    26.6 Suresh Raina falls to the slog sweep, it was there for the shot, full around middle, he decided to go for it but hit it straight to midwicket who timed the leap to take the catch, Martin is pumped up, jumps in the air as his team mates rush to him 111/5
    27.4 it was Raina in the previous game, it is YK Pathan in this one, a shot that is not on at all, long off in place and he decides to go over his head off his second delivery, does not time it at all, and just shoves it in the air to long off who comes in to accept the gift, utterly senseless shot selection 114/6
    37.5 it is the early season of gifting and Ashwin carries on with it, length ball way outside off stump, he walks and stands far from the stumps, tries to scoop it over short fine leg without bending to get the distance, and ends up spooning a simple catch to that man 145/9
    35.1 that is another one, another gift, this time from PK, backed away a touch to a short of a length ball, and just parried it limply to point 138/8
    not out
    38.6 Baugh continues to break the stumps in a jiffy, was Ishant;s foot back in time as he missed this one outside off and overbalanced while trying to loft with the turn, replays show that it is very tight, well he has been given, Ishant looks surprised, at least he does not have to face Roach 146/10
