    10 flighted ball, just pitching on the rough outside the off stump. He chooses to go for the drive. The extravagant turn the ball gets is because it pitched on some part of the rough. It takes the top edge and the gully fielder does the rest 29/1
    17.1 good length ball outside the off stump. Mukund thrusts his bat along with the pad. there were two noises there - inside edge and the ball hitting the pad- and the umpire judges it perfectly. The catch is taken by the short leg fielder 48/2

    19.3 Karun has had some trouble facing deliveries pitched outside the leg stump. This time he decides to charge down the track for a delivery pitched outside the leg stump. Hardik finds some turn and beats the attempted slog of Karun. The leg stump is uprooted and the hero of previous Irani Trophy doesn't repeat the heroics 56/3
