    2.2 steps towards the leg side to make a bit of room and Negi spots that and bowls it slow, loopy and wide outside off. Saha reaches out to try and hit it over the off side, doesn't hit it cleanly - it turned a fair amount too - and ended up spooning a simple, loopy catch to cover 16/1
    5.1 gone! That was full and wide and Vohra goes after it hard, throws his hands at the ball and ends up slicing it high in the air, straight to third man 35/3
    4.1 and he strikes first ball. It was a good length ball angling away from Bailey, and he pokes at it hesitantly, with his feet moving after his hands went at the ball, and Dhoni dives low to his right to pouch the edge 31/2
    9.5 squared him up! That was a flat ball angled in towards middle and off, and Maxwell was neither forward nor back. It spun sharply away from him and past his outside edge as he pushed at it feebly, and hit the top of off stump 55/5
    8.3 gone! That's another lovely bit of flight from Ashwin. Sees Gurkeerat skip down the track and defeats him with his trajectory again. The ball dips and turns sharply down the leg side and Dhoni does the rest 53/4
    13.5 flat, a touch short, and Miller rocks back to pull, gets a lot of power on it but hits it in the air, and Jadeja runs to his left from deep midwicket to complete an excellent catch, diving low to his left and taking it with both hands 78/6
    18.6 slower ball angled away from Axar, and it gets his wicket. Slashes away from his body and only manages a top edge that loops to the right of Dhoni, who settles himself under it and completes a simple catch 122/7
