    4.2 good length at leg stump, this time he stays put, gets on one knee and tries to lift this over square leg with a sweep. McCleneghan times his jump nicely and holds on to it 44/1

    7.3 plumb in front. Good length, this one is fast and straight. Lynn shuffles across and tries to lift this square on the leg side. It's an ugly swipe in the end, with eyes off the ball. It strikes him just above the flap on the back leg which is in front of middle stump. Correction: It hit the knee roll on the front leg 67/3
    4.5 and he's gotta go back! Good length at off stump, he doesn't poke at this because slip has come in. Goes for the slog sweep instead. Not to the pitch of this, slices it at a nice height for Hardik at deep midwicket and the Pandya household can't be prouder 48/2

    11.4 beautiful bowling. Loops it up again, good length at off. Pathan has had enough scratching around. Bounces down the track, doesn't get to the pitch and slices this to long-off's left, and it's brother Hardik under it again 87/4
    16.1 slower ball, full at leg stump, he wants to whip this wide of long-on but the pace throws him off. He lobs it straight to Pollard, who barely has to move at long-on 131/5
    18.1 slower length at middle stump, gets under it but can't generate power. Finds Pollard as he tries to slot this over long-on on the up 144/6
    19.6 ....anti-climax. Yorker at off stump from around the wicket, gets him on the toe in front of off stump and the umpire raises his finger. Even though replays showed he got a big bottom edge on that. 178/7

    7.3 given! Parthiv looks to sweep again, stepped across his stumps before doing so, and missed. Length ball, pitched on off stump, and straightened towards middle and off. Looked a fairly straightforward decision 65/1
    8.3 low full-toss, a bit of inswing, and Buttler plays across it and misses. Big lbw appeal, and it's given immediately. I wonder if it may have been going down leg. Seemed to strike him in front of leg stump with a fair distance still to travel, with that late swing. Not the greatest decision from Nitin Menon. 71/2
    18.3 he goes full, on the stumps, and he gets his man. Looks to make room, Rana, and slices it to point. Hits it well, too well, straight into Narine's hands at shoulder height 160/6
    9.5 a lot of legbreaks this over, and Narine has foxed Rohit with the offbreak. Goes on the back foot and it hurries into him. Big lbw appeal as he plays all around it, given immediately, but CK Nandan shouldn't have. Huge inside-edge on that - two poor lbw decisions in successive overs. 74/3
    12.1 back of a length down the leg side. Krunal looks to shuffle across and work it fine, only manages a thin edge through to the keeper 97/4
    16.1 big wicket, and is that the match? Wide short ball from Woakes, banged in to get some bounce on it. He has third man back, and Pollard goes for the cut and ends up slicing underneath, up in the air and straight to the fielder 119/5
