    3.4 it's that big inswinger from back of a length again! Pitches around off, and jags back in, Watling plays it onto the stumps as he looks to steer clear of this delivery 6/2
    0.2 plumb! dead plumb! PK is celebrating and appealing at the same time. He plays for swing, and consequently down the wrong line. But this one goes straight on, and he ends up playing around the front pad and misses. Caught right in front 1/1
    4.4 four, four, and gone! PK comes back superbly. Outswinger gets the edge. Close to off, just short of driving length, Taylor hangs the bat, ball takes a healthy edge, and Dhoni dives in front of first slip to take the catch 14/3
    20.5 Munaf gets another! His accuracy works again. Pitched off and middle, moving in, and he plays across the line, missing it altogether, and is dead plumb 52/7
    8.5 gone! played on! India on top. Back of a length, Styris looks to force it through the off side, but his feet are stuck, ends up playing away from the body, and the inside edge tickles the leg bail over 22/4
    15.5 big offcutter, finds the gap between bat and pad! This is the in-between length, and it cuts through Williamson's defence, getting a faint inside edge on the way through. The ball that first brought Ishant fame, the big in-dipper 41/5
    16.5 Munaf is among the wickets too! Another ball that jags back n, this time from just outside off, beats his defence, and umpire Rauf has no second thoughts while ruling him out lbw. It's taking out the middle stump 42/6
    22.2 Munaf gets three! Short ball around off, and he plays the limp pull shot, the top edge settles peacefully with mid-off 53/8
    30.1 PK hasn't had to move an inch at long-on to take this catch. The slower ball does it for India, Mills looks to hit this out of the ground but finds long-on 118/10
    24.2 and Dhoni's trick works! Six and out! Southee looks for another six, and this time he gets too much under it and finds long-on 80/9
