    19.3 bowled him! A tired shot from Rohit, who misses out on a third T20I ton. It's a length ball on leg stump. Everything you want at this stage. He slogs at it and can't get anywhere near making contact. It tonks the top of leg stump 202/4
    15.6 takes it! You wouldn't know it from his exasperated reaction. Stuart Thompson. Runs in from long-off and has to lunge again. This time he makes no mistake. Dhawan gets under this full ball but it's off the toe-end and loops up for the fielder. A smashing innings ends. 160/1
    17.5 short ball on the ribs and a very awkward short-arm pull from Raina. He's backing away and looking to nudge it into the leg side, but he gets a top edge that deep square leg takes comfortably 186/2
    19.2 holes out to deep midwicket. Runs down the pitch against the short ball and is cramped for room. Still manages to get a full pull shot out of it, but it's not got enough to clear the boundary 202/3

    19.5 another at deep midwicket! Length ball on leg stump, clears the front foot and slogs, finds the fielder. As easy as that. Four wickets for Chase. 202/5

    1.2 top edge taken by mid-on. Too fast for the pull. Awful position with the legs, not optimal with the hands. Stirling not close to being behind the line of this. It loops up and Kuldeep takes this just behind the umpire 4/1
    11.3 Another big shout for lbw from Kuldeep, umpire Hawthorne raises his finger this time. This was pretty adjacent. Quick fizzer from over the wicket, full and skids on middle, Shannon plays around it and is pinned in front. Failed paddle-sweep. End of a fine innings from him 85/4
    6.3 Chahal hangs it up outside off, it dips, creating distance between the bat and the pitch again. The ball also breaks away further, well past the reach of the advancing Balbirnie. Simple stumping for Dhoni 45/2
    9.3 Simi chips a leading edge straight into the lap of short cover. Kuldeep tosses up a wrong'un, it leaves the right-hander and dips. Simi uses his feet, eyes up the leg side, and hands a catch to Kohli 72/3
    12.4 Make that six down. Two in two for Chahal. Wilson dances down the track, Chahal held this legbreak back. It dips sharply and spins away as Wilson is left overbalanced. He swings for the hills and just collects fresh air 96/6
    12.3 O'Brien aims to clear the boundary again. No dice. Dhawan runs across to his right from wide long-off and snaffles this. Tossed up, full outside off, breaks away further, O'Brien lifts it down the ground but gets more height as opposed to distance. Ireland five down and sinking in steep chase 96/5
    15.1 Thompson holes out to Hardik Pandya at long-on. This was lobbed up on middle, nice and full, Thompson gets under it and swings it in the air but does not clear Pandya. India three wickets away from 1-0 114/7
    15.5 Kuldeep Yadav celebrates his fourth wicket. Delicious wrong'un, pitches on middle and leg and breaks away to hit off stump. Poynter does not read the variation and simply plays down the wrong line 123/8
    17.1 Bumrah spears in a yorker from wide of the crease and pings the base of off stump. Dockrell moves away outside leg and exposes all three stumps. Bumrah hits off with a pin-point yorker. It's waaay past the reach of Dockrell who had ventured outside leg 126/9
