    2.5 how bout that! M Vijay has pulled off a screamer and took a leaf out of Dwayne Bravo's book and did a little jig. This was fuller and teasing him outside off, Rahane got forward and timed his cover drive quite well. Only he didn't keep it down. Vijay dives to his left and plucks out a low one 20/1

    9.6 tossed up and outside off, Samson reaches out to lash it through the covers. Misses and his momentum ruins his balance. The keeper waits on the back foot to lift and then whips off the bails. Promising innings cut short 71/2
    14.6 there we go, the offcutter has flattened off stump! Bhatia saw length and went for a slog, But he hasn't spotted the variation, which grips the pitch and darts back in to hit timber. Is this the start of something? 115/3
