    6.1 Kartik strikes first ball, umpire Erasmus thinks awhile before raising his finger, Nayar struck in front missing a sweep to one that does not turn, but that has pitched just outside leg 54/2
    2.6 Rahane's gone, there was no single here, he had rushed too far up the pitch, Nayar whipped this to Bailey's left at mid on, took a couple of steps out and stopped, the captain is quick to the ball and scores a direct hit, Rahane had already given up trying to regain his ground, he had no chance 22/1

    13.1 gone now, goes down for another slog sweep, misses, and Patel hits middle with a full delivery angled in 128/3
    15.3 Miller's 'caught' one this time, but it has still not gone to hand, Binny mishits a slog, Miller runs forward at long on, it bursts through his wrists, but he has a second line of defence, the gap between his legs, it lodges between his thighs, he puts his hand underneath to prevent it from slipping out, but all credit to the legs there 144/4
