    0.4 what a catch! Length outside off, once again a bit of movement away, it wasn't there for the drive but Rahul followed it with his hands, got an outside edge and Buttler dived low to his right, taking it one-handed 4/1
    15.5 Gayle is furious with himself. Tripathi keeps his calm at deep midwicket boundary. Was a short one outside off, Gayle went for the pull but doesn't get the distance on this, Tripathi times his jump perfectly, both feet in the air when he pouched it. A big, big wicket 144/3
    8.5 gone, one Karnataka player gets another. Length ball on off stump and Agarwal goes for the big loft down the ground. Gets a touch too much underneath the ball, I thought, so he gets slightly more elevation and slightly less distance than intended. Kulkarni takes a great catch at long-off, jumping backwards with his arms up over his head, and he cups it with both hands even as his back foot lands perilously close to the boundary cushions. Does really well not to step on or beyond them even with his weight going backwards 60/2

    19.1 fuller but wide outside off, rolled his fingers over it as well. Pooran looks to clear long-off but ends up hitting it straight into the hands of Rahane at long-off 167/4

    8.1 bowled him! Carrom ball, straightens towards off stump and skids off the pitch. Rahane was looking to stay leg-side of the ball and steer this down to third man. Ended up playing inside the line and the ball crashes into off stump 78/1
    12.5 Ashwin has Mankaded Buttler here. And has appealed. Buttler is furious. Replays confirm Buttler was well outside his crease. He has to go back, not the best of the scenes here. Also, did Ashwin stop in his action and waited for Buttler to leave his crease? I think yes, but third umpire has ruled it out and Buttler has to go 108/2
    16.6 two in the over for Curran. It was once again a length ball but this time a touch away from the batsman who was looking to go down the ground, ends up slicing it over extra cover, Ashwin backpedals and takes it with fingers pointing upwards 150/4
    16.4 what a catch! Fuller outside off and Smith has just chipped it wide of long-off, KL Rahul sprints from long-off, dives to his left, gets both hands to it and latches on even after he falls on the ground 148/3
    17.3 looks to repeat the shot but it's googly from Mujeeb, not that full either, Stokes has to adjust and he looks to go over long-on this time, doesn't get the timing right and Karun Nair takes an easy catch at long-on 157/5
    17.6 a full toss on the leg stump, comes down the track and looks to clear long-on, but gets too close to the ball, and Rahul takes an easy catch at long-on 158/6
    19.2 a low full toss, Gowtham looks to go aerial, over mid-off but ends up toe-ending it, Shami comes in from mid-off, juggles before completing the catch 164/9
    18.5 fuller again, in the blockhole, Archer backs away and looks to flick it on the leg side, misses. But he is already half-way down the track, the keeper goes for the direct hit but misses. Shami is there to collect the ball, he runs to the striker's end and whips off the bails 163/7
    19.1 a short delivery, Unadkat goes for the pull but top-edges it and it lobs straight up, both the keeper and the bowler charge towards it, Rajpoot takes the catch but the two end up colliding and Pooran is on the ground 164/8
