    29.3 taken at deep square! Short of a length ball sliding across him. Looks to drag it into the leg side with a pull but he can't keep it down. It dips on CDG but he lunges forward and holds on 172/2
    25.2 taken! Good grab to the left by Latham. It's a short and wide ball outside off. He throws his hands at this because there were runs for the taking at the point boundary. Was reaching out a bit too much in the end though, the back foot didn't move. Thick edge and a tumbling take from the keeper 154/1
    39.1 Boult's pace has done the trick. Kohli looks to take him on with the short ball, but is beaten for pace and ends up getting a thick, fat top edge and Sodhi takes a good catch at fine leg, running around the ropes to his right. Important moment in the game. 236/3
    45.4 Ferguson takes it himself. Short ball pushed across the body. He backs into the leg side and looks to pull behind square. Done by the pace and bounce, he slices it up. Easy take for the bowler 271/4

    4.6 Chahal holds on! Fell down so awkwardly to his left at third man, it's almost as if he was battling Guptill's luck onto the floor. Short ball in the corridor. Arches back and ramps it up. But it hangs up and to Chahal's left. He takes it very close to the boundary. Couldn't get that over the line, Guptill. Maybe a bit of wind resistance there. The ball swerved late but safe in the end from Chahal 23/1

    14.1 oh that is plumb. Certainly on first look. There's no doubt, however, about the quality of this shot. Poor from Munro. Has dipped into a reverse-swat switch-hit very early. It's short and spinning in at middle stump. He's swishing awkwardly in the end, legs stretched either side. Looks like that hit him on the stomach. He's in front of middle and Taylor says no the review 84/3
    7.5 he's chopped it on! Is there a god? Williamson was looking prime today, but once again, he's early on the ball. Short ball outside off. He's on top of the bounce of this but it's off the under-edge as he looks to cut. That's the end and India will be relieved 51/2
    17.1 beats him with one that drifts away. Umpire wants to check if the back foot was in the air when Dhoni whipped the bails off. By Dhoni's standards, it was no more than a polite appeal. It was definitely in the air, but the point to note is if it was grounded when the LEDs flashed when Dhoni whipped the bails off. Well, well, well. It comes back as out. Taylor has been done in by absolute fractions here. New Zealand in further trouble. 100/4
    24.3 gets into a tangle and gone! This is bowled much faster from Kuldeep, Latham looks to play a premeditated sweep but realises this is fast and nearly yorks him, so tries to change his sweep to a block, but by then it's too late. He's hit on the back leg and Nigel Llong raised the finger even before Kuldeep could belt out a full appeal. 136/5
    30.4 beaten in flight and turn, doesn't get to the pitch but looks to swipe across the line, but ends up slicing this off a thick edge to short third man, who takes an absolute dolly. 166/7
    26.6 top-edges this slog towards deep midwicket, Rayudu was mindful of the advertising skirtings behind him, held his balance even if it took him a second more to position himself properly and then pouched this safely as it came down, with his shoes no more than a couple of centimetres away from the ropes. The end is near for New Zealand. 146/6
    39.2 finds long-on. That's the end of Bracewell's fairytale. A superb innings, and one that would have been worth a lot more if there was resistance from the middle order. This is full and outside off from Bhuvneshwar. Not quite a yorker, but full enough as Bracewell opens his stance and looks to club this over long-on. Gets it off the toe-end and straight to Dhawan 224/9
    30.5 goes too far across, misreads the length and spin, sees the leg stump knocked back. Had no clue there. Kuldeep on a hat-trick 166/8
    40.2 finds long-on and robs Boult of many runs. Length outside off, dipping on him. Steps out and wants to go long-on. But he's late to the pitch of this and lobs it straight to long-on 234/10
