    3.5 he's got his man. The wily old fox has dismissed his younger Mumbai teammate. This one was pushed through quicker on middle, not much turn, Rahane plays across the line and misses to be hit on the pad. Umpire Nandan didn't hesitate to raise his finger, and he was right. That would have hit middle. 27/1
    15.4 reward for Tambe, but has it come too late? This was once again fired in, it slipped under Faf's eyeline as he looked to launch that over long-on, missed it completely and Dinesh Karthik effected a smart stumping. He would have been slightly blinded by Faf's march but held his composure and concentration to pull that off. 132/3

    13.6 he's got him with that dipping slower delivery once again. KP didn't look comfortable with that delivery, was deceived as the ball dipped under his eyes, was through with the stroke early as the bottom edge deflected onto the stumps. DJ is back and is dancing to his own tunes 113/2
    16.2 fired full and wide outside off, Smith reaches out for it and swings through, ball finds the centre of the bat but lodges safely in the hands of the man at sweeper cover. 134/4

    18.4 he was struggling and Jadeja's ensured Marsh's stint is a short one. Fired into middle from wide of the crease, Marsh looked to swing that over midwicket but was cramped for room, missed it as the ball cannoned into the stumps 143/5

    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
