    1.3 that should put a dent! He was heard on DJ Bravo's mic saying he wasn't getting much shape, but this one did move into the right-hander. Rohit went for a flick and he has picked out short square leg. 7/1
    12.6 just didn't happen for Parthiv tonight. He walks off, sweating half his body weight. Loads of effort into that innings, and yet he only has 34 off 29. Falls to a shortish ball on off stump, when his pull shot does not have the requisite power to clear deep midwicket 77/5
    3.3 he's done it again! Doesn't look anywhere close to a wicket-taking delivery. Short, slow, there to be pulled to the legside boundary. But he fails to place it well enough. Picks out short square leg and walks back after banging his bat against his helmet 19/2
    8.5 well bowled, Jakati! Some innate sense must have told him Buttler was nervous. That he would come down the track. And so he slips the ball down leg, it's quick as well so the batsman who was trying to adjust with a flick shot can't reach it. DK does an excellent job, moving quickly to his left and whipping the bails off before Buttler recovered 51/3
    10.1 you were asking for him, and he has the ball in his hand and a jig to show off. DJ Bravo takes the skier with such ease and Tambe has a first-ball wicket. It was flat on off stump, Pollard stood and heaved it straight up. Could have done a lot better if he had moved his feet a bit more. Think he was reaching the ball a bit and it certainly did not take the middle. Bravo at long-off steadied himself, had loads to time to do so actually, and takes it so well 59/4

    16.6 telegraphed his intentions - to pull the ball over fine leg - by moving way outside off stump. So Faulkner goes straight, beats Rayudu and topples the stumps. Very few of Mumbai's batsmen have got their big shots going tonight, and yet they haven't bothered to change their game. 99/7
    15.5 so what happens you take away Bhajji's strength? This. Without the pace to work with, he doesn't look half as strong as the striker he can be. Bravo has understood that immediately and bowls an offcutter. It's back of a length to draw a big swing across the line. Thick edge settles in the keeper's gloves 88/6

    19.5 that's a special effort! First in the slower ball to make Southee look incompetent. It was more a legcutter and it was pitched back of a length. Southee thought it was in the slot to slog, but without the pace on it, he has to adjust his bat swing. Tries to block, easily beaten. They go for a bye, DK throws it to Bravo, who takes aim at the bowler's end and throws the stumps down 141/8

    1.3 is that out? the umpires want to see the replay, it was a full toss on the stumps, McCullum backs away and thumps that towards backward point, straight at Hardik Pandya who takes a low catch, or does he? the soft signal is out, looks like it is taken cleanly, Pandya seems to have got his hands under it. Yup, third umpire confirms it 12/1
    8.3 141 kph. Pace and bounce. Raina had looked very good when he has had the chance to push on the front foot. So McClenaghan bangs it short on and around off stump. The pull shot shouldn't have been Raina's go to. If anything, he should have tried to ramp it. In swinging across the line, he gets a top edge and Parthiv runs a long way to his left and takes the catch at short third man 65/2
    11.1 he's got one! And Krunal is celebrating even wilder than his brother! Races to Harbhajan who took the catch at long leg roaring and jumping and revelling in his success. Poor DK, he nailed the sweep and he may well have been thinking that would go for six. But Bhajji moved to his left and leapt up just in time to grab the ball over his head. Top catch! 80/3
    12.2 he was back to take a wicket, and does so in double-quick time! Bravo is surprised by the short ball, but he is walking back ever so forlorn. He does not think he has nicked this. It was a short ball, a pacy one too, just outside off. Bravo was set up to pull it, then decided to ramp it. Having lost his balance playing two different shots to the same ball, he is floored on the pitch and reacted quite strongly when the finger came up. The ball seemed to deviate as it passed the open face of the bat. Posthumous swing fools the ump because there wasn't a nick 83/4
    16.1 the slower ball does it! Nath had cleared his front leg and was looking for the swipe again. McClenaghan, bowling from around the wicket and digging it in short, made sure the batsman had to drag it from over his left shoulder. So the top edge results and ends up as an easy catch at mid-on. Hardik takes it and goes bonkers with his celebrations again 109/5
    18.2 that's gone! The change of pace works again! The horns are out in full force at the Wankhede! I can't imagine how the umpire heard the nick, but he did. It was shortish from around the stumps, Faulkner backed away for a late cut and feathers it through 131/6
    18.4 make that two wickets and two dots! McClenaghan is making sure no one is missing Malinga. It's another shortish delivery angled into the tailender, Praveen was backing away and trying to slide it off the open face. Parthiv, who was moving down leg suddenly has to change direction, dives to his right and takes a stunner with both hands 131/7
