    2.3 Binny strikes immediately, Agarwal has played on, stayed back in the crease to a climbing delivery, tried to dab it with an angled bat, managed a thick inside edge 20/1

    4.1 inside edge onto the stumps, first ball! The ball was well outside off, Iyer pushed at it away from the body without any footwork and edged it on to off and middle stumps 32/2
    17.6 fullish outside off, Duminy goes across and ramps that straight to short fine leg. He went down on a knee for the full delivery, got the middle of the bat but could not clear the fielder in the circle 145/6
    8.5 looked like it would go all the way, but Binny has taken that out of nowhere at deep square leg, Yuvraj is stunned! Short ball, something bowled often against Yuvi these days, and he pulls that with a smack, but Binny jumps near the boundary rope to his left and falls just inside the line to send him back 65/3
    13.3 faint outside edge and Samson takes an excellent catch diving forward! The length delivery didn't come in that much and Mathews stuck his bat out for the outside edge. The keeper did very well to get his gloves under it 106/4
    15.3 top edge goes high on the off side, and Watson runs back from cover to pouch it safely! He swiped the ball to the leg side from outside off, didn't time it at all and the ball gave Watson enough time to run back and catch 123/5

    18.3 can't clear Smith at long off this time! Another poor delivery, this was a full toss outside off, NCN lofted that high down the off side and it could have cleared the boundary. But Smith kept his cool at the boundary and took it near his shoulders with his fingers pointing up 155/7
