    8.5 edged and gone! This was touch back of length outside off, Smith poked trying to steer it to third man but found a thick outside edge and DK pouches it with both hands to his right 70/2
    1.5 cuts it to point, Baz is gone in the second over! Chahal delivered this one slower outside off, it turned the other way and Baz went back in the crease to cut it off the middle. Rossouw takes a good, low catch towards his left there 12/1
    12.5 can't clear the fielder this time, holes out to long off! He charged down, as usual, chipped the ball down the ground with power, but it didn't have enough to clear Rossouw at long off 124/3
    14.1 Dhoni mistimes, Dhoni is gone! He came outside the crease, couldn't take it on the full and lofted it outside off, didn't middle it at all and found sweeper cover 132/4
    15.2 in the arc, but not out of the park even though it looked like he middled it. Fulish around off, lofted between long on and deep midwicket, but it's gone high enough for long on to get under it 135/5

    17.3 you can give them to AB and he'll catch them. Pitched up around off, it was slow again, and Bravo looked to loft it over the covers but mistimed it straight down the ground, high in the air. AB comes from long on and catches it safely 156/6
    18.2 makes room for the slower ball on the stumps, it's absolutely full and Ashwin slice it straight to short third man 168/7
    19.4 rams into the off stump at 145kmh! Angled it in from outside off, Mohit made room and swing his arms but the ball rammed into the off stump 177/8

    3.3 Faf du Plessis, you beaut!!! He keeps taking this shoulder-breaking catches in almost every game. This is a top-edge as Bisla looks to hit down the ground and it looks like well clear of mid-off, but Faf back pedals and somehow gets under it just in time.. Falls backwards hard on that right shoulder. Just saw on the replay.. this is a one-hander.. doubly impressive then 31/1

    3.6 Ashish!!!! He has two in this over. This one slides under the bat and hits the stumps. To be fair to Rossouw, this was the work of the pitch. It stayed very low after bouncing on a length. But Nehra will take it. His wickets tally keeps going up 33/2
    16.1 he is back and gets a wicket immediately, the big one! Landed a full delivery on the pads, Kohli launched it high on the leg side with a flick, Smith was there right at the midwicket boundary at the edge and caught it over his head on the right side. Very well judged 123/6
    8.2 that's a spectacular catch from Bravo, and what a celebration! Back of length slower ball towards off stump, DK lofted it down the ground, it didn't go that high but Bravo ran in from long on and threw himself forward to get his fingers under it. Then he gets up, raises his right hand and leg simultaneously, then the left ones for a little jig. All in slow motion 61/3
    11.3 run out chance, it's Dhoni's smart work again despite a wide throw, the decision goes upstairs! Replays show AB is out despite his dive, out by a couple of inches. Kohli punched at the ball towards sweeper cover, initially they might have thought of two and AB turned around quickly, so did Kohli but said no after a couple of steps. The throw at keeper's end was wide, Dhoni came out of the crease and parried the ball to the stumps 85/4
    13.3 right from the middle of the bat, but he finds deep midwicket. Went down on a knee for the ball outside off, swept it against the turn and holed out to Mohit, who was a good few yards inside the rope 97/5
    19.6 a wicket on the last ball as Wiese threw his bat at this one outside off, get a leading edge and Smith ran in from deep cover to take the catch 154/8
    16.2 another one falls, another nail hammered by Nehra! Harshal pulls his first ball, it was a short one, but manages only a top edge down the ground. It's gone high enough for Bravo to run behind the umpire form mid off, he catches it and does a little Calypso jig 123/7
