    3.5 the slowness of the surface has resulted in Prithvi's downfall. This is a touch short but stooped on him, Prithvi rocks back to pull and is through with the stroke early, only manages a top-edge that is gobbled up nicely by Dhawan at cover. 21/1
    3.6 stunning ball, super grab. Dream ball for any left-arm spinner. Drifted in, drew the batsman forward but spun away sharply from off stump to take the nick through to the keeper. Roy didn't even wait for the umpire's decision. 21/2
    7.4 another ball, another inside edge and Pant is involved in a run out again. This rolled just wide of the keeper, Iyer was more than halfway down the pitch when he had to turn back. By that time, Goswami had lobbed the ball to Sandeep, who broke the bails at the bowler's end. 43/3

    13.6 comedy of errors. Another mix-up with Rishabh Pant. Harshal Patel is three quarters of the way down the pitch for the second, but the throw from deep midwicket is fumbled by Shreevats, but he recovers quickly to get to the ball and then comes up with an underarm flick to beat Harshal's dive. Surely someone's got to have a word with Pant about his running, very very poor. Fourth time now that Pant is involved in a run out this season. He's run his partner out on three of those occasions 98/4
    19.1 slices this slog to long off. Hales makes no mistake. Wonder if this was a little too ambitious from Maxwell? Was he better off giving strike to Pant? Looked to go straight but got no timing. 161/5
