    1.1 McClenaghan strikes first ball! He has a fielder at fly slip, and Kohli picks him out. McClenaghan bowls a shortish ball, on a fifth stump line, angling away, and Kohli pokes at it, maybe looking to guide it to third man, and hits it straight to the fielder. May have bounced more than he expected 8/1
    3.4 back of a length on off stump, and Gayle looks to clear mid-off. It's a little shorter than the ideal length for that shot, and he ends up getting a lot of elevation but not the desired distance, and Rohit shuffles backwards and takes a well-judged catch. I thought it bounced and hit high on the bat, but upon viewing close-up replays, it looks like it's gone off the bottom part of the bat. Must have stopped on Gayle and caused him to go through his shot too early 17/2
    10.1 and he's got AB twice in two games. It's a touch short, but it comes through quicker than AB expects as he rocks back to pull. There's no turn, and it cramps him while also bouncing a touch extra, and it hits the high part of his bat and goes high in the air before dropping to the man at deep midwicket 60/3

    15.3 full now, in the blockhole close to off stump, and they set off after Watson jabs it close to Rohit at extra cover. Wrong fielder to take on, particularly since he was moving to his right, and he picks up and hits the stumps direct at the bowler's end with Watson nowhere near the crease 98/4

    9.3 shortish outside off, and it hurries onto Rohit, who's a little late on the pull. Wanted to go over midwicket, I think, and ends up shovelling it straight into long-on's hands 60/2
    1.1 and he immediately finds extra bounce to strike the first blow. It's back of a length outside off, it straightens a touch as Parthiv flashes at it with an angled bat, and the thick edge is taken at first slip, Watson getting both hands to it over his head 2/1
    15.1 shortish, wide of off, Rayudu takes it on and looks to aim down the ground, and doesn't get hold of it at all. AB comes in from the long-on boundary and takes a superb, low, tumbling catch 98/4
    12.6 fired wide of off stump, fairly full, and Binny has taken a blinder on the cover boundary. Rana goes after it, slices it high in the air, and Binny runs to his left, leaps, catches the ball at full stretch, and comes to a tumbling stop just short of the rope, while ensuring all the while that he doesn't ground the ball 79/3
