    1.4 what a delivery! It just kept closing in on Rahane, who thinks he has the chance to run it to third man, a stroke he is impeccably good at. But Umesh's pace - and his bounce - the ball just kept rising - takes the glove through to the keeper 11/1
    18.4 he's gone! Gone for 93. Gone to a slower ball. Is there life in this game yet? Poor Tripathi. He has timed better balls to the boundary. This one is short, it has ample room to free the arms, he does free his arms, but pulls it straight to midwicket. Rovman Powell, who is yet to get a game, takes the catch 150/6
    4.6 off stump goes to sleep, possibly peeved that Smith would play a shot like that and leave it open to Woakes' menace. He backs away to try and flay a shortish delivery through cover, misses altogether 59/2
    8.2 ripper! He isn't just an outswing bowler. People seem to think that's all he has, but this one hits the seam, nips back, takes the inside edge of a batsman just thrusting his hands at the ball and then crashes into his stumps 88/3
    13.3 superb catch by Narine himself, running back the moment he made Stokes top-edge the ball. Races to where an orthodox mid-on would be, always in control, then reaches out with both hands and takes it like a boss. Hundred a day ago, but Eden consumes Stokes, again. Walks off thrusting the bat into the outfield. A parting shot. 131/4
    16.1 he's walking. That's twice in two matches Kuldeep has had Dhoni. This one is the googly, which the batsman has not picked. Reaches out, trying to drive the ball to long-off, but with it moving further away from him, he can only nick it to the keeper 139/5
