    9.6 caught behind! Cooper strikes with the slower ball that was pitched short of a length! Smith was on the pull way too early and the top edge lobbed tamely to the keeper. Yagnik ran forward to take it 76/3
    2.1 a superb catch! McCullum hit that slog sweep hard, sending the ball flat and fast towards square leg where Karun Nair caught it at head height. The ball went straight to him but it was travelling 20/1
    4.2 that's a poor ball but Raina's swept it straight to short fine leg! Ankit pitched on leg from round the wicket and it was an ordinary delivery. Raina moved across his stumps, got down on one knee and swept. He didn't hit it high enough but a couple of feet either side of the fielder at short fine and it would have been four. However, the ball went straight to Bhatia, who took a low catch 41/2
    17.3 in the blockhole, bowled him! Full and straight, and fast too. Faf was outside leg, making room to hit through the off side. He missed and the ball crashed into the base of middle sump 121/5
