    10.6 carrom ball sneaks through bat and pad off the intended cover drive! The turn on that was vastly impressive, almost like a leggie! Very loose stroke from Sharjeel as his front foot hardly moved and he just went at the ball with his hands 71/1
    14.6 short ball and he's pulled it straight to short midwicket! Shehzad is stunned, India have wry smiles on their faces. Possibly his worst delivery in this spell, but those rippers he produced before must have played on the mind of the batsman. 93/2
    43.3 swept away, but this is the carrom ball and deep square leg pulls off a catch diving forward! Hitting against the turn there and he has sort of top-edged it. Bhuvi holds his head under pressure and Kohli leaps up and punches the air in delight. 200/5
    16.2 complete confusion and Misbah's gone to a run-out again! This was tossed up and doesn't turn, blocked into the covers and takes off for the single. But half-way through he changes his mind and sells his captain a dummy. The throw is a little off and Mishi does extremely well taking it low to his left, dives towards the stumps on his right and underarms to break the stumps! 96/3
    22.2 Jaddu has pulled off an amazing skier and Mishi's dream run today continues! Akmal has to walk back after a poor shot! This was tossed up and Akmal could not resist throwing his bat at it. Gets a toe-ender which soars up high into the cover region. Jadeja runs back and takes a blinder over his shoulder. Made it look so simple. 113/4
    44.4 low full toss, picked away to square leg, but there is some huge confusion out there and Maqsood is run-out! He had timed the flick too well and Afridi recognises that too late. Had rushed forward for the single and then sends his partner back after he had nearly crossed halfway down the pitch. Ashwin's throw is good and DK does the rest 203/6
    not out
    48.3 Rahane, you little beauty! He's been India's best fielder and at long-off he's snared a blinder! It was in the slot to be smeared over the top, but Gul has hit it off the bottom and Rahane runs to his left and dives forward to pick up a good, low catch 235/7
    48.6 caught on the long-off boundary! Bhuvi has taken two in the over and Talha succumbs! It was a length ball on off stump, he made room outside leg to loft him over the top. Gets too much height on this and Jaddu is very composed as he reverse-cups this just inside the boundary 236/8
    49.1 carrom ball and Ajmal's bowled around his legs! Kohli is beside himself, so is Ashwin! This was amazing flight outside leg and lures the tailender into a sweep shot, but this dips on him and turns viciously to take middle stump 236/9
