    5.4 straight down the throat of deep square leg. Rohit never looked settled today. Walked into this stroke and failed to keep down this release shot. Persistence pays off for Willey. Clever field placement from Morgan. 13/1
    17.4 there's the big wicket and it's a run out that has accounted for Dhawan's dismissal. Kohli whipped this wide of Stokes at midwicket, took a step towards a single and then put his hand out to refuse the run. By then, Dhawan was considerably down the pitch and had to turn back. Stretched as much as he could but it wasn't enough to beat the direct hit. Excellent work, England's fielding has earned them a big scalp. Dhawan misses out after being set again. 84/2
    30.1 oh, that's a ripper! Kohli is castled! He looks stunned... set and at ease, but suddenly gone. Rashid can dine out on this one for a while, a beautiful legbreak that has ragged from leg stump to smack off, beating his outside edge on the back foot! Kohli stares at the pitch, looks back at the bowler, then heads for the dressing room... How big a moment is that? 156/4
    24.2 dragged back onto the stumps, just when he was looking good. A touch of overconfidence? This was nicely tossed up outside off, he went for an expansive drive, not much feet movement and left a huge gap for the ball to sneak through bat and pad. What a disappointment for India, he was looking in sparkling touch. 125/3
    45.5 nicely bowled, Dhoni steers an edge to the keeper! Willey gets the big fish, there'll be no finisher heroics today, either. Just nibbled away, maybe a cutter and the angle helped, fiddled through off the back foot 221/7
    30.6 tossed up and straightening, Raina turns it off his pads... straight to leg slip! Two in the over for Rashid, England are amongst 'em now! Up goes the finger, that went off the face of the bat as he played with the turn, well taken low to his right by Root 158/5
    38.2 gottim, Pandya nicks off! Good pace and bounce on a testing line and Pandya isn't equal to it... Maybe went away a touch off the seam, he played inside it but just got a feather on the leather. Wood strikes now, another breakthrough and England are cock-a-hoop 194/6
    49.6 full toss, humped high towards cow... and taken safely in the deep! Willey picks up his third wicket from the final ball, Bhuvi didn't have the power to clear midwicket running around 256/8
