    7.5 legcutter wide of off stump. Kohli throws his bat at it, away from his body, hits it hard, but in the air, and straight to short cover! 64/2
    7.3 bowled him! That's a dangerous shot, looking to sweep a stump-to-stump ball. This was a quickish delivery, bowled with a seam-up action, and Rahul went across it and left his middle and leg stump exposed 63/1
    17.5 gone. That's the wide yorker, and AB looks to steer that wide of short third man. Makes a bit of room, slices it away with an open bat face, middles it perfectly, and picks out the fielder 155/4
    8.4 bowled him! Watson is too early into the pull - I've seen this happen before, during the 2013 Test series in India - and Axar's flat, shortish ball holds up on the pitch, keeps just a touch low, and takes out middle and off stumps 67/3
    19.6 full again, chipped towards long-on. They go for the second, it's the last ball after all, and Baby is nowhere near the crease when Saha picks up Miller's throw and removes the bails 175/6
    19.5 what a catch that is! Length ball, and Head looks to hit across it, clearing his front leg and aiming over midwicket. The ball isn't quite as full as he'd like, and because he's going at it with a diagonal bat, it means he hits it off the outside half of it, slices it in the air, and Vijay, running towards the boundary from short extra cover, does brilliantly to take it while it drops from behind him, while running at full tilt 174/5

    5.3 short, Amla has to fetch the pull from a long way outside off, and he doesn't get any real power into it. Binny times his jump perfectly at midwicket, takes it with both hands over his head 45/1
    16.6 short ball gets the big wicket. Given the size of the square boundary, it's pretty difficult to drag the pull from wide of off stump, and he can only hit it as far as Chahal on the square leg boundary 139/4
    10.5 down the track, and has Rahul missed another stumping? Lovely flight, a bit of dip, and Saha ends up playing all around the ball as he looks to work it against the turn. Saha is a long way down the pitch, but Rahul doesn't catch cleanly. It hits his pad and he has to pick it up off the ground to complete the stumping. Saha turns around and stretches back into the crease, but it looks like the bails are off by the time he makes it. But the third umpire wants to see this again - the ball has bounced up off his pad and it's bounced down off the grille of his helmet. But he clarifies that since the ball hasn't bounced directly onto the stumps off the helmet, and that he picked it up with his glove in between, it's fine 88/2
    10.6 gone! That is a beautiful delivery! This time Rahul makes no mistake. Angles it across Miller, outside off stump, and he comes forward and reaches out to drive. The ball doesn't turn as much as he expects, and it beats his outside edge and Rahul whips off the bails with Miller having dragged his back foot out of the crease 88/3
