    81.1 Bhatt gets it to drift in, break away, and graze the outside edge. Gorgeous delivery. Bharat pouches the catch. This is pretty similar to Suryakumar's dismissal. Tossed up and drifts in on middle, then turns away, Shaw has to play at it. He pokes and snicks it behind. End of an excellent innings from the 17-year-old batsman 306/4
    23.1 short and wide outside off, mix up after he cuts. Point slides to his left and releases the ball quickly. Herwardkar had run straight away and he was sent back. Did not make it. Third umpire confirms that 74/1
    26.5 caught at first slip. Good length at off stump, drifts in, jumps up and takes the outside edge as he pushes with hard hands 89/2
    78.4 Wakhare finally makes the breakthrough for India Blue. Quicker offbreak, starts outside off and turns in, Karthik plays all around this full ball and is pinned in front of middle. More relief than joy for India Blue. Shaw congratulates his departing captain on a fine innings 300/3
    83.3 the left-arm spinner kept Indrajith waiting and nabs him. Arm-ball from Bhatt - does not turn - he uses his feet and ekes out an inside edge onto the front pad. Ishan Kishan at short leg stays low and snags a sharp catch 317/5
    95.5 edged and taken! Not very pacey, but terrific line. 126 kph outside off, in that channel outside off, Jaggi flirts, the ball kisses the outside edge and the keeper takes a simple catch 354/6
    127.2 picks out a slightly-deep cover. Sundar's fine knock ends on 88. More flight outside off, Sundar wanted to go towards long-off again, but just a hint of turn ensured the ball skewed off the outside half. 483/10
    109.4 taken! Great catch at short leg, stayed low, got his hands in the right position and took a good catch. Full outside off, the ball turning in, a thick inside edge and Kishan gobbles it up at short leg 402/7
    121 edged and gone. In that corridor again. Good length outside off, didn't look like there was much movement. But Kaul took the bait, fished and was caught. A thick outside edge is gratefully accepted by the keeper 439/8
    121.4 given this time! Caught or lbw? Flat on leg, Dinda misses a sweep off the full toss and is struck flush on his boot, on the full. Looked like it may have been sliding down leg actually, because it struck him on the full 440/9

    60 Caught by Jaggi at leg slip! Jaggi falls to his right and pulls off a brilliant one-handed catch. Length-ball offbreak, starts on middle and breaks down the leg side. Easwaran camps back and looks to glance it past Jaggi. The ball grazes the inside edge, Jaggi grabs a cracking catch, and umpire Chaudhary raises his finger 263/6
    15.2 goes through the defense this time. Slightly round-arm, the slider drifts on and cuts Bharat in half as he looks to cut. A thick inside edge clatters into the stumps. Chopped on, a nothing stroke really 51/1
    27.1 caught behind. Makes this loop at a length and drift in to off stump. Rises up as it turns away and Tiwary follows it with his hands. Thick outside edge, taken easily 93/2
    28.2 he's gone. Stumped. Steps out, gets nowhere near the pitch. Beaten by the loop as this drifts in. He's looking to hit over extra cover but it spins past rapidly. Third umpire replays show it's close as Karthik takes off the bails. But he deems it's out. One frame the difference as he stretches his back leg to try and get back in. 94/3
    33.1 holes out to deep cover. Steps out and meets it at the pitch, but he's gotten too far leg side of it. Reaches out in the end and slices it high. Taken easily 121/4
    34.3 back of a length, arm ball from around the wicket. Traps him in front of middle stump, on his back leg. He's playing on the back foot. There was a sound, a big one. The umpire says out straightaway. Kishan signals that it was bat. But that won't help him. Unlucky end, because it could have gone the other way. Bat and pad were very close. Third duck in a row for him. Hasn't got a run in three innings in this series 123/5
    63.1 Unadkat throws his head back in despair after picking out deep midwicket. This was pushed through flat and quick, spins in on middle, Unadkat dares to slog sweep, but can't clear Milind, the sub fielder, in the deep 290/7
    63.3 Sundar follows his maiden first-class fifty with a maiden five-wicket haul. Looped up, drifts in on off from around the wicket, and then turns away. Sundar draws a loose prod from Bhatt. Simple catch for Karthik behind the stumps 291/8
    66.5 Soft, soft dismissal. Short, wide outside off, turns away. Instead of thumping it over backward point, Wakhare scoops a catch to Kaul 299/9

    10.3 Shaw takes on Ishant's arm again, this time he collects the ball swiftly, and releases to the keeper. Shaw is caught short on the second despite a full-length dive. Pushed through on off stump, shovel-swept away to the left of deep square leg. The two wasn't on, and Shaw paid the price 43/3
    4.2 Wakhare has Herwadkar snicking to second slip. This was a genuine wicket-taking delivery. Tossed up on a length on off, raises a puff of dust from the surface. Herwadkar presses forward and pokes. The ball turns and lobs off the shoulder of the bat to Tiwary 15/1
    7.5 Jaggi has nicked off to second slip. Sharp, low catch from Tiwary. Bhatt angles a full ball in on middle from around the wicket, draws Jaggi forward. Then he gets the ball to break away just enough to take the outside edge. Tiwary snaffles a smart catch 24/2
    14.4 Tiwary claims another sharp catch, this time at silly point. Straightens on middle from around the wicket, Karthik is halfway forward as he offers a bat-pad catch to silly point. Tiwary stayed low and made it look simple 58/4

    49.2 Indecision from Indrajith, and he drags it back onto the stumps. Good length and angling away outside off from over the wicket. Indrajith was caught between playing and leaving. Eventually, he does a bit of both and hears the death rattle. Joy for Unadkat. The drink will taste sweeter for India Blue 135/5
    62.2 gone! A wicket off the second ball of the day and Red have lost the set Washington Sundar. Flat, quick, on a length, spins in with bounce and finds the inside-edge as the ball hits the pad before lobbing in the air for a simple catch for forward short leg 187/8
    54.1 Suryakumar reverse-sweeps Bhatt straight into the lap of Tiwary at first slip. He pre-meditates the shot. Stretches out and runs this tossed-up ball from outside off to Tiwary, who takes his fourth catch of the innings 164/6
    56.3 gives it the charge and misses the line! Pitched on a good length on off stump but the batsman danced down the ground, tried to hoick it over the bowler's head but he was nowhere near the pitch of the ball. He's got to go 168/7
    67.2 picks out long-on. Kaul dares to take on the spinner and steps down the track. This is from around the wicket and tucks him up slightly. Goes straight down and gets decent elevation but long-on gets around it running to his left and snaffles it 207/9
    67.5 all over! There's the end of the innings. Charges down blindly and swings wildly. Kudos to the bowler for making him fall to the bait. Invitingly asks him to step down by flighting it just enough. It's a non-turner, comes on straight, beats the swing and the keeper does the rest by taking off the bails 208/10

    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
