    8.3 the young man has a wicket against the run of play. This one was once again a flatter delivery, but wasn't all tjat short, Finch went for the sweep, struck it well but picked out Ishant, the lone man at deep square leg. M Ashwin lets out a roar, he was under pressure but has come back well. 85/1
    13.1 is that the break they were looking for? McCullum skipped down three paces, looked to pull but was cramped for room, top-edged it towards Faf who took it easily at cover. After a passage of slow bowling, the change of pace perhaps did McCullum in. End of a fine innings 120/2
    16.1 this time, Dhoni doesn't miss the stumping. This one was bowled flatter, it pitched outside off and straightened after pitching, Raina stepped out and pushed inside the line of the ball, missed it as Dhoni had enough time to whip the bails off. Surely this has come a little too late? 147/3
