    2.4 bowled. That's a pretty awful-looking shot from Pant, a big heave across the line. Just a regular length ball angled across to hit the top of off stump 13/1
    5.6 gone, chipped straight to midwicket. Looked to whip that length ball from an off-stump line, and maybe it stopped on him. Yeah, seemed to, and he ended up popping the simplest of catches to R Ashwin 48/2
    9.4 down the track and this time he's close enough to the pitch of the Bhatia leg-roller to try to hit it over extra cover, but he ends up slicing it squarer than intended, and Thisara takes a good catch running to his right at sweeper cover 65/3
    16.6 slower short ball outside off, pulled towards deep midwicket, and that is a super throw from Rahane, flat, accurate, one-bounce, and Dhoni collected an inch over the top of the stumps and did the rest with Duminy a good two feet short of completing his second run 138/6
    14.4 is that a switch hit? I think so. He switched hands, turned around in his stance, stepped away from what was now his leg stump, and then slogged this fullish slower ball on the stumps straight to long-off 110/4
    16.5 slower bouncer does the trick. Brathwaite fetches the pull from shoulder height, from outside off, and can't clear Thisara on the square leg boundary 137/5

    17.5 flat and quick on the pads, clipped to deep square leg, and it looks like we have another run-out. They go for a second again, and Saurabh Tiwary hits the stumps direct at the bowler's end with a flat, one-bounce throw 143/7
