    12.3 India are wobbling here. Utseya bowls another floater outside off which goes on straight and Karthik decides to go for the cut but gets the edge. Taylor does well to hold on to it. 61/3
    8.6 Vijay is run out. Absolutely lazy effort from Vijay and smart work from Taylor. It was tapped past square-leg .. Vijay had stepped out looking for the second run but gets back. Here is where the drama starts. The throw comes to the front of the stumps and Taylor collects and back flicks it to the stumps ...Vijay is so lazy out there .. he was so slow .. and lands his bat down and drags ever so slowly .. unbelievably lazy. And he is run out. Thank you come again .. 56/1
    9.3 Kohli is run out. It was reverse paddled towards short third man and they decide to get across for the risky single. Chigumbura, who has had an awful time with the ball so far, fires in a lovely direct hit .. Kohli tried to dive back into the crease but couldn't beat the throw. Out without facing a ball. In street cricket, if you had owned the bat, you would have taken it and walked off in a huff! 57/2
    47.5 Rohit tries to slog a length delivery from outside off over midwicket but gets the top edge .. Taylor moves to his left and takes a tumbling catch. Rohit started off slowly but finished strongly to end up on 114. His first ODI ton. 260/5
    29.6 The Indian captain is gone. He rushed down the track but was greeted by a bouncer outside off stump. He lunged out and tried to cut it over point but edged it to the keeper. He was off balance .. and had to reach out well away from the body. 128/4

    12.6 Done in by the slider.. It landed on the middle and off line and skidded towards the middle stump line. Masakadza tried to punch it through the off side, off the back foot, but couldn't' connect as he was beaten by the in ward movement. The ball skidded through the bat and pad gap. 88/1
    34.1 Taylor is gone. Not a great delivery but it gets a wicket. It was a short delivery on the leg stump line and Taylor pulls but finds the man at fine leg. Taylor out for 81. Now then .. who is going to take ownership of the chase? Ervine has looked good so far 176/3

    29.3 Done in by the arm ball. It moves in with the arm and hits the pad in front of middle and leg. Tight call. Most likely it would have hit the leg stump. Though no one would have complained had the umpire not given it out .. they would have then said it might have gone down the leg side. 151/2

    42.6 Lovely slower one to remove Charles. It looped across, dipped rapidly on a length and Coventry was completely bewildered. He lunged forward in the end and stabbed at it. The ball went on straight to go through the bat and pad gap. Vinay strikes again. 231/4
