    16.5 that's hit the top of middle and stump! Rahane has gone too far down the leg to make room and this one spins to beat his bat-swing 167/3
    5.3 that is plumb in front! This was the arm-ball and Nair plays down the wrong line, this would have knocked the middle and leg 44/1
    10.2 he's gone now, but he's done his job, Duminy angles it wide across him, Cooper stretches to have a swat at it, it is another high mishit, and sweeper cover settles under it 93/2
    17.6 big legspinner, the batsman drags it down the ground off the toe off his bat, Jadhav runs in from long-on and takes a simple catch. This has been a superb over from Tahir 169/5
    17.3 Binny comes and Binny goes! They are checking with the third umpire but it's out to the naked eye. Binny charges down the pitch, gets comprehensively beaten by the googly and is well short 168/4

    7.4 this is falling apart very quickly! Bhatia does it now, this is a slower delivery at 96 kph, KP gives himself room and looks to go over extra cover, but this comes slow off the surface, stays low too, takes the inside edge and ruins the stump arrangement 48/4
    2.3 attempts the Uthappa straight loft over mid-off but fails, he doesn't get it off the middle and ends up chipping it towards mid-off where Smith back pedals to take a simple catch 19/1
    4.4 Cutting takes a catch at fine-leg! This time he settles under it nicely and gobbles it up.. Slower short ball, DK pulls it straight down to fine-leg 30/2
    6.5 JP is not going to be the saviour! He looks to cut the quicker delivery but cannot keep it down, straight to point 43/3

    9.2 one-hander from Bhatia! this is on a length and gets stuck in the pitch, Taylor punches it down the pitch but gets hit high on the bat, it lobs up softly towards the bowler who sticks his right-hand out and plucks it 58/5

    13.2 Cutting's day is following a sine wave! It's heading towards the crest now, this one is full and swinging, beats the bat and hits the leg stump 86/7
    14.4 Tahir walks all the way to the off side to play a ramp, Binny keeps it straight and simple and preys on Tahir's error.. The batsman misses and the ball smashes the off stick 91/8
    18.1 he gets a low full toss and he smashes it straight to extra cover, Smith takes an easy one 120/9
