    8.1 Dhawan's got the important wicket, he gets it to swing back in, Rahane was playing down the wrong line, left a gap between bat and pad and bowled through the gate 56/2
    2.4 Bailey takes the skier, this was short of a length and Nair was down the track looking to deposit this somewhere, not near the pitch of it and it was a top edge that swirled towards cover, Bailey keeps his gaze on the ball 21/1
    13.1 stumped by a mile! And Karanveer impresses, Samson was down the track to launch that and was completely foxed by flight, bounce and turn, nowhere near the pitch of the ball, didn't bother to get back 83/5
    8.2 Dhawan's rattled the furniture again and this time it's Watto! Like the previous ball he got the ball to move back in through the air, Watson was looking to push it to the off side but left a small gap between pad and bat, the ball clipped the off stump, the keeper was up to the stumps 56/3
    11.1 high catching practice for Shaun Marsh at long-off, tossed up and Binny made room and gave him the charge, wanted to clear long-off but it was a half hearted shot more than anything else, easy for Marsh 70/4
    15.5 Karanveer takes this easily, Tewatia looks to go for another slog but doesn't get the distance and this time he finds the fielder at deep square leg 101/6
    17.3 another easy stumping for Saha, Hodge was looking to advance down the track and he made room, Akshar fired this towards the leg stump and Hodge was a long way down and missed it 128/7

    17.5 fine running catch by Marsh! Tossed up and Cooper looks to smash it over the off side but miscues it, it was high in the air and falling in front of long-off and Marsh had a lot of ground to cover, he timed his fall well and took it and held on after hitting the ground 130/8
