10 huge shout for lbw and given this time. Loopy slider on middle and leg. Seems to go on with that angle to hit the pad. Easwaran is playing forward for the turn and the ball hits the pad around leg. Seems to be wrong decision again. With that angle, the ball should have comfortably missed leg stump. Got one is his favour a few deliveries back. Not so lucky this time 47/2
    4.2 bowled him! Kishan had no clue about that one. He is standing there, wondering what happened. Sundar slides one on middle and leg. Finds the rough in that region and the ball straightens off that rough to come on straight and knock off the top of off. Kishan's entertaining and attacking start is short-lived. Blue one down in pursuit of 393. 27/1
    27.3 and now Tiwary has been trapped in front. Sudar bags two in two and it's both the big fish. First Raina and now Tiwary. Raina paid the price for lack of feet movement and Tiwary for playing across the line. Fuller ball, slides across him from around and Tiwary looks to flick it. Misses as the ball turns into him and hits the pad, plumb in front of middle 132/4
    25.1 Raina has been trapped lbw. He hangs around just for a moment. Was there an inside edge? No, pad first. Hits the pad, then hits the bat before brushing the pad again. It was the arm ball from Sundar. On a length and Raina pays the price for staying rooted to the crease. Comes on quick and sharp, leaving him with little time to react. Huge, huge blow for India Blue 127/3
    29.2 another one for Sundar. Washington Sundar, take a bow! What a match he is having. Eighty-eight in the first innings, then a five-for, then 42 in the second innings and now another five-wicket haul. He has shut the doors on a fightback from India Blue. This one's full and angled across outside the off stump of Hooda who closes the face of his bat and pops a leading edge to first slip 137/6
    27.4 Bharat is gone for a first-ball duck. Turn and bounce does him in. Length ball from around the wicket. Slid across and spins in to the batsman. Bharat is forward looking to defend and the ball goes off the inside edge to the pad before short leg takes the catch. Karthik was also coming in. Neither man calls but they avert disaster 132/5
    32.5 Unadkat gets down for a sweep but it's the wrong length to be playing that shot. Not quite full enough. Length ball, fired from slightly wide and curves into Unadkat before straightening to beat the shot and hit him plumb in front of middle 159/7
    44.2 oh, dear! That is an unfortunate way to get out. No batsman deserves to get out in this manner. Bhargav shapes for a cut at the sight of this short ball and hammers it. Silly point turns his back to protect himself and the ball strikes him painfully on the arm. It then deflects off his back and lobs in the air for the bowler to gleefully accept a return catch. Silly point is down in pain. That was struck awfully hard. Deflected off him and carried all the way to the bowler, so you can imagine how hard he must have been hit. Prithvi Shaw the fielder 210/9
    36.1 tell you what, that seemed to be no more than a drill back to the bowler. But it's a caught-and-bowled. And it seemed that way because there were two noises. But that was just the bat hitting the surface. It was an ugly cross-batted swipe to a fuller ball and the ball lobs straight back to the bowler 177/8
    not out
    48 six wickets for Washington Sundar. Pankaj gets down to slog a length ball, misread the length. Swings feebly, misses and the ball crashes into middle stump 229/10
