    9.3 soft, very soft. This is possibly a top spinner from Karn. It climbs from back of a length and cramps him at off stump as he looks to cut. He can't get through with the shot, it takes the shoulder of the bat and lobs up for the bowler who runs a few feet to his left and takes it 76/1
    11.3 tossed up outside off, steps out and doesn't get to the pitch. His front foot tends to go across and not forward, and that might be why he was marginally short of the pitch. Looks to go inside-out but it was turning away and he got it off the bottom outer half of the bat. Skewed wide of long-off where Pollard ran comfortably to his left to get under it 93/2
    12.6 Bhajji is putting everything into this scream. His 200th T20 wicket. It's a long hop at off stump, but it has come on slower than Smith expected. He's through the pull shot early and this shatters into the off stump. Dropped him last over, but he has got his man. 104/3
    17.3 drags it on. Length ball at off stump. Swings across the line to try and bludgeon this, but the angled bat means he gets an inside edge. Crashes into off and middle 138/5

    16.1 got him. This isn't a particularly good ball. In the slot outside leg stump, and in his arc too. But Stokes hasn't put a stride in and has to end up reaching out for it. Can't do it successfully, and it hits leg stump 126/4

    19.4 looked plumb, but on closer look it seems like it was going down. Slower ball, full at middle stump, he's through the shot early. Struck him in front of the stumps, but it deviated quite a bit after pitching. Might have missed leg...replays say umpire's call. 158/6

    8.6 Sundar takes a wicket off his last ball. This is neither short nor wide for the cut. This is full and straight, Parthiv misjudges it, and looks to cut it from there. He can't put bat on ball. Sundar hits 60/3
    4.2 Stokes takes down his England team-mate for the first time in T20 cricket. He pumps his fist and celebrates. Buttler backs away outside leg. Stokes slips in another slower ball - this is slower than the previous one - 109ks, asks Buttler to manufacture all the pace. He can only drag the ball to Sundar at long-on. Just before this ball, mid-on had been sent back, and Buttler finds him 35/1
    7.2 The top edge balloons to third man. Christian digs in this legcutter outside off, Rana can't control a pull. He skies a catch to Unadkat running in. It isn't easy to hit across the line on this track. Good catch in the deep 51/2
    19.4 and Unadkat nips out Rohit. Is this the match?Slower short ball outside off, Rohit looks to slog it across the line. He only skies it in the air off a big top edge. Unadkat himself settles under it. He tumbles, the ball bobbles out, but Unadkat hangs on, despite awkwardly banging his head against the turf. Pune hang on 150/7

    12.1 and he strikes again! Stokes has two wickets without conceding a run Another batsman falls attempting to hit across the line on this slow track. But this was perhaps Karn's job: he was promoted to belt a few quick runs. Slower ball outside off, Karn goes for the slog, loses his shape, and the thick inside edge hits the stumps 86/4
    16.1 Tahir returns and takes down Pollard. Fine catch from Smith, running to his left from straight long-off. Smith covers a lot of ground, the ball bobbles out, but he holds on. Tossed-up legbreak outside off, turns away, Pollard is nowhere close to the pitch as he miscues a loft 122/5
    19.1 Hardik falls for the first time in a chase this season. Stokes bolts in from deep extra cover, dives forward, and completes a smart catch. Slower ball on a length and outside off, Pandya slaps it on the up, but holes out 144/6

    19.5 full and wide outside off, flat-batted away to wide long-off. Harbhajan chances two, the throw from Stokes is flat and to the non-striker's end. Unadkat collects it and swipes the bails off to catch McClenaghan short. Stokes is everywhere 151/8
