    3.5 gone this time. What an innings that was promising to be, but it has ended. Concludes with another superbly-timed pull. Back of a length on middle, Rohit pulls but fails to keep it down and hits it exquisitely. Maybe a bit of arrogance thinking he could clear the boundary, and didn't bother rolling his wrists on the pull. Massive wicket 33/1
    4.3 poor shot and Guptill goes. Smith gets one again. Good length outside off, Guptill chooses the wrong shot. Chooses to drag the pull instead of the off side. As a result, he struggled to get enough behind the ball. Toe-ended to Bravo at mid-on 41/2
    16.6 slower delivery works. A good length delivery, moving away from Rana who is through his smear too early. Ended up just lifting the ball in the air to deep square leg who settled under the sitter. But a fantastic knock from Nitish R 153/5
    4.6 and another. Smith gets another. What is happening? Back of a length on middle, Krunal chooses to pull but cannot keep it down. More of a top edge and carries all the way to square leg. Finch runs across and holds on. 45/3
    13.5 what a catch! Very similar to the Mishra dismissal earlier this season. Overpitched delivery on off, Buttler drills his drive back to the bowler. Bravo sways out of the line of the delivery and then sticks out his hands, the ball sticks and Buttler had his head down immediately 120/4
    17.5 missed his length and he gets rewarded for it. Dhawal gets lucky. Full toss outside off, Pollard mis-times his big hit. Spliced off the outside half, Smith runs in and takes an easy catch at long-on 160/6
    19.6 low full toss on leg, Pandya clears his feet but miscues a catch to long-on. Did not get anything behind it. Bat turned in his hand 172/8
    19.2 slower delivery this time outside off, Harbhajan swats the legcutter in the air but straight to deep midwicket. Raina runs in, settles underneath and completes the reverse-supped catch with plenty of ease 166/7

    0.2 lovely delivery! Full, straight and plumb. Finch was again playing across the line, and he was stuck on the crease while doing so. Should have come forward to negotiate the length better. As such he allowed the ball to pitch and skid on. Can't bring his bat in line with it either because the front pad was in the way 0/1
    9.2 what's happened there? May have been the topspinner outside off, McCullum misses another pull as the ball swerves past his bat. The ball comes back in to clip the off bail. An anti-climax as McCullum has to go. Bowled. 96/2
    12.2 straight up and taken. Another awful awful delivery from Bumrah but it has resulted in another wicket. Raina tried to help it on its way but went too hard. A thick leading edge is skied. A white object against a dark background descends into Buttler's gloves 122/4
    10.6 given! Karthik is not happy at all. And he has the right to be. Back of a length down leg, off the thigh pad to the keeper. Umpire Chaudhary has got this one wrong. Another poor delivery from Vinay, but the thin sound that was heard was plausibly responsible for the umpire's decision 111/3
