    4.6 bowled him! Yadav's liking this pace off the surface. It's just short of a length and outside off. Roy is done by length because this has skidded low - too low for the pull anyway. It's off the inside edge as he looks to pull. He hasn't picked the length for that shot at all today. This time it costs him a wicket 50/1
    17.4 that's his first five-for! Kuldeep had only just managed his best figures, against Ireland last week. But through sensational use of the wrong'un and flight, he had ripped right through England today. Buttler looks to long and straight once more and is beaten in flight again by a googly. This time it's for long-on to take. Kohli does it. 141/7
    11.3 it was coming. We could see it coming a few overs ago. And it was the only outcome possible as Hales exposed his stumps - far too early. You could tell this would hit the stumps. He was down before the ball, he was swinging for the sweep while it was too full. 95/2
    13.1 it's that time. When India's spinners try and impose themselves in the middle overs. And they're certainly managing to do that. Kuldeep tempts Morgan into getting under this one too early through a very rapid dip on this full ball ball. Morgan doesn't get to the pitch and it spins ever so slightly away. Ends up a slice and an easy take for deep midwicket 106/3
    13.3 oh what a ball! Bairstow had no clue. Kuldeep is turning it on! Draws him into a drive on the up. He would've struggled whichever way that turned, because he was nowhere near the pitch. As it turns out, it's a wrong'un. His back leg is out. Dhoni does what he does. I've used this word before already but it's got to be used again - masterful. Too good from Kuldeep. 107/4
    13.4 another one! Kuldeep has made England's two best Test batsmen in recent history look very very ordinary. Lobbed up at the exact same line and length again, just outside off. Root also playing for the one that turns in. Surprise surprise - it doesn't. He's walked a long way down the wicket. He's given up. Dhoni fumbles and uses his helmet to recover. That wouldn't have been out a year ago. No problem this time. 107/5
    15.4 oh dear. Moeen does the slice to mid-off again. Short ball slanted across him and he's gone with hard hands for a slog that looks silly by the end of it all. Extra cover pedals backwards and claims it 117/6

    18.3 easy take for the bowler. He's bowled a juicy full toss and Jordan has managed to get a big inside edge onto front pad that lobs up harmlessly for Umesh. A wicket handed much like the rest of the innings was handed - delicately. 149/8

    0.5 crash! That sounded brutal on the stump mic! Full outswinger and Dhawan's front foot is nowhere near the pitch of this as he looks to blaze it through extra cover. Inside edge before tonking leg stump 7/1
    12.4 straight to extra cover. A good-looking shot, timed really well, but he can't get it over the fielder. Pushed through flat from Rashid, much like the rest of his spell. It lands at a good length and he goes with the turn. That's the end of another massive top-order stand for India 130/2
