    9.4 two-fingered googly, he read it too, rocked back to pull it, and instead of going over midwicket, he hit it straight into his lap. Soft dismissal, he is beside himself, did almost everything right, yet at the last moment the execution went wrong 47/2
    6.4 gone! Kula strikes with the inswinger! Perfect area, and he finally plays the drive, and is beaten and hit on the back leg. It seemed in live time that an inside edge might have saved him, but replays prove the umpire to be correct. Good persistent bowling. On second look, the snicko confirms an edge 28/1
    37.4 Kohli has missed out on a century here! He wants to finish this early, comes down the track to play the lofted shot, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball, and doesn't get the desired elevation and holes out to long-on 201/3
