    7.2 chipped back to the bowler! It's a legbreak, around middle, extracts some turn. Shaw stays in the crease, looks to drive the ball to long-off, but he's not in a great position. Because of the turn, all he can do is hit a leaden-footed poke back to Gopal 74/2
    0.4 edged and gone! An inside edge is taken by Buttler. A golden duck for Munro. It's nice and full again, inviting a drive. The ball moves back in, in the air. Munro goes driving, but he's played slightly outside the line. A thick inside edge is found, Buttler dives to his right and takes an easy catch. Excellent bowling to persist with that full length in swinging conditions. 1/1
    14.3 Iyer holes out! A slower delivery outside off, Iyer backs away and chips an uppish drive to long-off. He wanted to hit that straighter, but the cut on the offcutter took that away from the bat, which meant he could only slice the ball. Tripathi just about holds on. 166/3
    14.6 overpitched outside off, but the slower one does him in. Tried to slog it towards deep midwicket again, but this time it's a one-handed shot. Doesn't have the distance, and Stokes - at long on - settles under it 172/4
    17.1 17.01 Yorker on middle stump, and Maxwell can't get his boot out of the way. Crashes into his toes in front of leg stump and the umpire has no hesitation. Maxwell's reviews, but starts walking to the boundary. Does he think it's out? Nope, it's raining. The players walk off as the third umpire adjudicates. He's out! 196/6
    16.2 Tripathi under it! Full just outside off, and Shankar goes for another biggie. This time it's off the toe end of the bat and long off was manning the boundary. Seventeen off six in a innings run-rate of 11.69. An excellent cameo 191/5

    9.4 full on off stump, and the extravagant drive is sliced. In the air, and Avesh Khan at short third man does the rest 118/4
    6.4 done by the googly! Full outside off, and Buttler came dancing down the wicket. The ball zips straight through and Buttler's way out of his crease. Mishra held his length back just a bit 82/1
    8.1 Munro at cow corner! And that's the Purple cap for Boult. Full on off stump, and Samson's leg-side whip is mistimed. In the air for ages as Munro comes running in. Takes a sharp catch with the floodlights disturbing his vision for certain 92/2
    8.6 waist high full toss outside off, and Stokes thumps it towards the leg side. Straight down deep midwicket's throat, but Stokes thinks it could be a no ball. They're checking. It's gonna be close, but given! 100/3
    11.4 run out at the non-striker's end! Full and wide outside off again, and Tripathi can't muscle this over cover either. Gowtham's quick to get to the other end, but Tripathi's too slow. Rajasthan need 10 off two balls 141/5
