    5.2 once again looks to go leg side but doesn't get hold of the pull. Dhawan at midwicket dives forward to complete a low catch. Roy wasn't convinced it carried and queried to the umpires, who after the benefit of multiple replays, decided it was a clean catch. Dhawan claimed the catch immediately. 37/2
    4.5 what a big wicket, a potentially big moment. The dangerous McCullum never looked in today. This is the wrong'un which he looks to sweep but plays too early and is beaten. Struck plumb in front of middle. Umpire had no hesitation in raising the finger. 35/1
    8.6 this time he's foxes Raina with a traditional legbreak. Raina plays down the wrong line, perhaps expecting a googly. He was a dead duck the moment it smashed into the pad. As plumb as they come. Hitting middle of middle. 57/4
    6.2 he continues to weave his magic. This is another googly that drifts in from wide of the crease. Finch didn't pick it off the hand and stabbed outside the line, only to see the ball cut back in to beat the inside edge and hit him plumb in front. Lions in real rouble 42/3
    17.2 tickles one to the keeper. He looked to get down on one knee and ramp this over the keeper's head but Nehra followed him. Cleverly done by the old war horse. The bounce did the trick this time, got too big on Karthik and he ended up getting some glove on it. 114/6
    16.4 slower delivery angling in from wide of the crease, Smith drags this from outside off to Vijay Shankar at deep midwicket. He looked to muscle it a lot straighter, but was hitting towards the longer boundary. The ball cut back in a wee bit as well which ensured the bat face turned in his hand. Handy knock nevertheless 113/5
    17.4 total miscommunication. Dhawal nudges this to the leg side, sets off for a single without looking at PK. Rashid swoops in from midwicket and effects a direct hit at the striker's end with a rocket throw. Dhawal wasn't even in the frame. 115/7
