    9.5 got him, good stuff from Tambe, Chand has yorked himself, it was tossed up again, Chand stepped out without much conviction, and the ball dipped and slid quickly under his bat to take out middle stump 45/3
    6.3 and now he strikes, he kept moving the line across Rohit, this one was floated up outside off, moved away a tad, Rohit pushed at it away from the body, and the lone slip was in business 31/2

    18.6 could have been another flicked six but Pollard could not get enough distance on this full one and deep midwicket tumbles forward to take it 149/4
