    11.4 and his misery ends. Good length, angled in at off stump. He wants to whip this into the leg side. Closes the face too early. Balloons a leading edge to extra cover where Gambhir doesn't have to fret 97/3

    5.1 gets through his defence first ball. Googly, good length, angled in at off stump. Vohra plays for the turn and is looking to slap this on the up through the off side. Well away from the body, huge gap for the ball to float through before crashing into the stumps 53/1
    7.4 back of a length at off stump, Stoinis was camping on the back foot all innings long. He was getting cramped too, regularly. That is his downfall in the end. Looks to cut this, but the line and angle won't allow it. Chops it onto the stumps 66/2
    12.1 brings back his strike bowler and it pays off immediately. This is back of a length, climbing at a leg stump line. Maxwell looks to make room and cut this, but he's cramped and it takes the outside edge on his flat-bat. Easy catch for Uthappa 98/4
    17.3 misses another yorker, this is a full toss too. Too fast for Miller to slog this over the midwicket boundary. Gets it high on that bat and slices it out into the leg side where Pandey runs in from the midwicket boundary and slides forward with the momentum after pouching it low. The third umpire was called on to check for height there, but it was safely below waist 155/5
    17.4 full at off stump, Saha wants to lift this over mid-off with a full face. But once again, Umesh's pace and slight tail in affects the timing. He chips straight to mid-off and that's cleanly taken 155/6
    17.6 and another! Even Narine can hold on now. Good length, slower ball at off stump. Closes the face too early as he looks to flick it into the leg side, gets a leading that goes straight to Narine at extra cover 156/7
    19.5 slower ball, sits up nicely for the pull shot outside off stump, miscues the pull and lobs a catch to Suryakumar at long-on 169/8
    19.6 good length at off stump, backs away and tries to hammer this over the off side. Gets a leading edge that goes high. Gambhir gets under it, drops it first attempt, drops it second attempt, lobs it up as he's losing balance on the third attempt, and realises he has nearly gone a full 360 degree as he pouches it on the final attempt 170/9
