    41.2 taken at long-off! Rohit walks off with his head thrown up at the sky, he's wondering if he's left a few runs out there, but he goes back with 147 to his name and the entire Kanpur crowd chanting his name. What an innings. A fifth century in the year, and it ends with perhaps one of his only miscues which sends a tossed up delivery outside off to Southee's hands 259/2
    6.1 taken at mid-off! This pitch is truly, properly hard, and the good length ball bounces a lot more than Dhawan anticipates. He attempts a repeat of the drive he played in the last over, only this time he wants to go over mid-off rather than past his right. But those plans are ruined because Southee is able to extract a tiny bit more off the deck. Good stuff 29/1
    46.4 taken at long-off! Southee profiting with the slower delivery again, this one comes off the back of the hand, asking Kohli to make all the pace himself. He tries to lift it, perhaps wider of the man on the boundary. But in the end, it carries straight down Williamson's throat 302/4
    43.2 taken at long-off! Good bowling from Santner, firing the ball in at middle, Pandya has to launch it. He has no other choice. Mistimes the shot, gets too much height, and Southee does well to track it down 273/3
    49.1 caught at short third man. Milne joins his team-mates in taking all the pace off the ball. It's actually a legbreak, which Dhoni flat-bats, gets an outside edge and skews it to Munro 331/5
    49.6 caught at long-on! It's a slow short ball outside off, Jadhav pulls it hard, but with there being no pace to work with, and these being decent-sized boundaries, he is taken by Guptill 337/6

    5.1 Well taken by DK! And that's Bumrah's 50th ODI wicket. Good length on off and Guptill tries to lift this over mid off, not enough power in that, and Karthik races back, gets under the ball, and makes no mistake. That's the first breakthrough 44/1

    24.2 outstanding bowling! The wristspinner strikes in the middle overs. Who knew? Beautiful flight. Sexy drift. Munro rooted to the crease. Dainty shot, away from the body. It isn't even right to say his defences were broken. He didn't mount any in the first place. Beaten all ends up 153/2
    28.4 swings across the line and Chahal has the big breakthrough! He keeps getting them, and it's often in the same way. The batsman going for a big shot, trying to fetch a tossed up delivery from way outside off. Williamson top-edges the sweep and Dhoni collects the catch without too much incident - he had to sidestep the batsman to get under the ball 168/3
    40.1 Outside edge, and taken! Slower ball, an offcutter to be accurate, and Taylor was too early through with his defense off the front foot. It hits the shoulder of his bat, and lobs up to Jadhav at point. There's the breakthrough 247/4
    47.5 glorious yorker just outside off and Bumrah runs Latham out! De Grandhomme missed the shot, and Dhoni noticed Latham (the non-striker) racing down the wicket. He loops the ball straight to Bumrah, who smashes the stumps with a ferocious throw. Latham is stranded in the middle of the pitch. He backed up way too much before this delivery. Pays his price 312/6

    46.5 The yorker has worked! Full-pitched on leg stump and it goes between bat and pad. Breaks the leg stump, and the crowd is alive once again 306/5

    49.4 full toss outside off stump, and the waist-high shot has been pulled away towards cow corner. Is it a six? No! It's caught by Dhawan. But wait, it was a really high delivery, and the umpire wants to have a look for the no ball. The front foot seems fine, and so does the height. Santner was way down the pitch. He has to go. The ball was muscled away, but came off the top half of the bat. That shot needed a better connection. 326/7
