    4.5 gone! Too close to cut, and he stayed inside the line and poked at it with an angled bat. Came in off the pitch, and a thin but easily discernible edge through to Dhoni 8/1
    8.6 short ball, and Gayle simply couldn't control that pull from outside off. Skied it way up over the leg side, and he pretty much picked out the only fielder deep on the leg side, safe catch from Mohit at deep square leg 35/3
    7.2 It's all happening, there's a run-out, and I'll have to take a moment to figure out exactly what all happened. It was short, and too quick for Gayle to pull from outside off. Hit high on the bat, fell short of Mohit running forward from mid-on and diving. Samuels wanted the single, Gayle was ball-watching, and both were at the batsman's end when Mohit threw to the other end. Kohli backed up quickly from cover to complete the run-out 15/2
    21.5 aaand he's gone. The sweep does him in. On this pitch, one ball is going to bounce a bit more, especially when Ashwin's flighting the ball this well. Top-edges it, and Shami came in a little too far from the long leg boundary, but he kept his eyes on the ball and stretched to his right, over his head, and backwards, to catch it in both hands 71/6
    9.1 and he's gone, first ball! That was full outside off, and he went hard at the cover drive, with an angled bat, and only managed to drag it onto his stumps, off the inside edge 35/4
    18.1 another wicket off a short ball. It's banged in outside off, and Simmons is really in no position to hook it. Top-edges it and Umesh takes a simple catch at long leg 67/5
    35.4 gone! That's a back of a length ball, angling in towards Sammy from wide of the crease. The batsman was looking to make room to play through the off side and it followed him, and he had to poke at it with his feet in the air, and ended up nicking it to the keeper, off the shoulder of the bat 124/8
    24.1 aaand he strikes first ball. Sees a bit of air outside off and Russell goes for a big hit straightaway, hits across the the line, and top-edges a loopy catch to Kohli coming in from long-off. 85/7
    44.2 oh, he's holed out! It was a good length ball and as the batsmen before him, he tried to make too much of it. Poor heave ends up as a slice that the long-off fielder has no trouble with 182/10
    42.6 bouncer outside off, goes for the hook, top-edges it, and this time he pops it in the air, and Umesh moves to his right from his follow-through and takes a simple catch 175/9

    6.6 gone! That is a beauty from Taylor, just short of driving length outside off. Rohit went for the drive away from his body, and it swung away late and kissed his edge through to Ramdin 20/2
    4.1 gone! That was the perfect length in the corridor, and it straightened a touch after angling in from around the wicket. Dhawan pushed at it with an angled bat, and Sammy held the edge well to his right side at second slip 11/1
    14.6 gone! That was a better short ball on this pitch. Batsmen have struggled to pull from outside off on this pitch, and Kohli's no exception, had to meet it at shoulder height, top-edges it and he spoons it straight down the throat of the man at long leg 63/3
    17.5 given! Made room to dab it down to third man, and the ball slipped past (or off) his edge very quickly through to Ramdin. Rahane reviews it. Replays look inconclusive. It straightened a touch and went very close to the outside edge. The bat, as it came down, hit the flap of his back pad. Seam position remained the same as the ball passed the bat. There's a bit of a spike on Snicko, but it's hard to say if that was ball on edge or bat on pad. In the end, the third umpire upholds the decision. Interesting one, this. 78/4
    22.5 gone! Smith has struck! It isn't the greatest ball anyone has bowled today, it's short, a reasonable amount of width outside off, but Raina can only top-edge his slash through to the keeper 107/5

    29.3 another wicket off a short ball, another miscued pull. It's shoulder high outside off, that is the golden area in this match, and he top-edged it straight into the hands of Samuels at deep square leg. Nearly dropped it, but held on at the third attempt 134/6
