    7.1 ramped straight to third man! Back of a length outside off, and Rahul opens his shoulders to play a cheeky shot over third man. Done in by the lack of pace (119 kph) and the uppercut lobs in the air. No mistake from Richardson running in 61/1
    9.2 full outside off, and he opens the bat's face to drive over cover. Stoinis, though, runs in from the boundary and dives forward to take a stunning catch. But it's been taken so close to the ground, that the umpires want to have a second look. Not sure which team will be happier with the wicket. Replays suggest that the ball did hit the ground, but his fingers may have been under it by then. Soft signal was out so this should be interesting. What does TV umpire Menon feel? Dhawan's gone if the TV umpire's unsure because of the soft signal. And the TV umpire says 'out'. But, we'll never know whether it was a conclusive decision or he stuck with the on-field umpire's call. India lose their second, and Dhawan's tiring innings comes to close 70/2

    10.5 gone, the pressure's told on Pant! Tosses this one up enticingly, a fair way outside off stump, and Pant goes for the big heave and loses his shape. Wasn't quite full enough for him to control perfectly, and it turns and skews up in the air for Jhye Richardson to take an outstanding catch, sprinting to his left from long-off and throwing himself horizontally at the ball 74/3
    19.1 miscued, and Dhoni won't get his fifty. Cummins bowls a cross-seam ball, just short of a good length, on about off stump, and Dhoni, aiming towards long-on, slices it instead and long-off takes a simple catch walking a few steps forward off the rope 174/4

    11.1 and he strikes first ball! Slower ball, angled across the stumps from over the wicket. Short clears his front leg and looks to hit it over the on side with a cross bat, and ends up slicing it high in the air, to Rahul waiting under it in the covers 95/3

    2.2 He answers the captain's Kaul! Back of a length on off, and Stoinis looks to pull. But ball sneaks under his bat, and clips the top of off stump. Another failure from Stoinis, the opener 13/1
    3.6 sliced in the air! And Dhawan completes the catch with a thigh-five to boot. Finch's poor run continues. Back of a length on off, and he looks to pull over midwicket, but the ball doesn't rise as much, and he lobs the catch to cover. 22/2
