    24.3 that's awful! And he's thinking about the review. He takes it! He takes a review after being plumb lbw! Jadhav adds to his legend of picking wickets off innocuous balls. It's that slingshot - low arm, spear in on middle. Dickwella plays a lazy old lapsweep, not keeping in mind this is the rare quicker ball from the part-timer. Struck low on the front pad, in front of middle. Ball-tracking says it would crash into leg stump. Not even umpire's call. An outstanding innings - one that enthralled this packed crowd - ends a little limply and India have an opening. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 139/2
    13.6 reverse-sweep straight to extra cover. Tossed up outside off stump. Wants to bisect the square fielders on the off side but gets it straight it off the toe. Gentle floater to Rahul at extra cover. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 74/1
    27.1 he's run right over the ball to be bowled! Axar pulls out a couple of imaginary guns from his pocked to celebrate, and he may well do after this rocket zips through Mendis' defences. The batsman comes charging down, doing so a touch too early, just early enough for the bowler to slip in the quicker ball (104 kph), right into his pads. Mendis plays all around it in his haste to connect. All to no avail. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 150/3
    32.2 he's even taking wickets off full tosses! The on-field umpires are going to check on its height before sending Tharanga on his way. And replays show the ball is dipping on it way below the waist when the batsman makes contact with a heave. Connects with the higher part of his bat and as a result it settles in nicely at Dhawan's hands at long-on. Outrageous. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 166/4

    33.2 back of a length in the corridior. Drops it into the off side and the non-striker calls him through. Kohli runs in from extra cover and hits the stumps with an underarm flick as he dives forward. Third umpire has been called for. Batsman put in a big dive, but he is short. That's out. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 169/5
    34.2 holes out to mid-on! Kedar Jadhav backtracks, gets the reverse-cup out and tumbles backwards to take a sharp catch. They had mid-on in and the youngster has taken the bait. It's length at middle stump. He's down the track and not to the pitch. Twists out of shape as he looks to slog this. Balls stops slightly on him and bounces as he does so. Horrendous shot. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 176/6
    35.5 clean bowled. Meek Surrender is the cliche documentary title for this innings, if you're a filmmaker watching this. Overpitched at middle stump. Unlike a nice straight drive earlier in the over, he goes across the line. Looks to drill this through midwicket but he's missed by a long way. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 178/7
    38.5 trapped on the back foot. On first look, it's 50-50. Could have been missing off. But they have no reviews left anyway. Good length ball at off and middle. Cuts away slightly as he brings down an angled bat. Raps him in front of off stump. On replay, it looks closer than it looked first up. Yes. Hitting off stump. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 187/8
    41.2 'acha marta hai yeh.' said Dhoni before this ball - 'he hits it well.' Chahal adjusts accordingly. Tosses it up full and wide outside off. On cue, Malinga comes down the track but nowhere near this. Stumped. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 209/9
    43.2 bowled him. Length ball, skids through quickly and into the batsman. In other words, the Bumrah stock ball. Smashes the top of off stump, slipping in via the big gap in number eleven's forward defence. Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka). 216/10
