- Players/Officials : Michael Vaughan
12.5 CR Brathwaite to AM Rahane, 4 runs, short, down the leg side, Rahane gets just enough on that pull to beat Samson diving to his left | May 5, 2016
9.3 JP Duminy to AM Rahane, 4 runs, flighted, a bit too much width, and Rahane plays that inside-out loft over extra cover that he plays so well | May 5, 2016
8.3 A Mishra to SS Tiwary, 4 runs, back of a length googly, and I'm not sure he picked it. Pushed hard at it with his hands, with an open face, and managed to squeeze it to the left of the slip fielder | May 5, 2016
8.2 A Mishra to UT Khawaja, out, down the track and this time Samson doesn't make a mistake. Beautifully bowled again, slows it down, drops it shorter than Khawaja expected, and it's the googly again. Didn't seem to pick it, looked to heave it over the leg side, and didn't come anywhere near connecting | May 5, 2016
6.5 A Mishra to UT Khawaja, dot ball, lovely, lovely bowling. Floated up slower, and it drops shorter than Khawaja expects as he plays a wavy drive away from his body, and it's the googly, turns away and beats his outside edge as he stretches out. Samson has the bails off quickly, and it goes upstairs, but the back foot was planted firmly enough, with a fair part of it behind the crease | May 5, 2016
5.3 Mohammed Shami to AM Rahane, 4 runs, length ball on middle stump and there are those wrists again, clips it and times it superbly, beats midwicket to his right and beats a sprinting, diving deep square leg to his left | May 5, 2016
5.2 Mohammed Shami to AM Rahane, 4 runs, shortish on middle stump, and Rahane puts it away with super timing, uses his wrists to pull-whip through square leg | May 5, 2016
5.1 Mohammed Shami to UT Khawaja, 1 run, shortish, and Khawaja is through his pull too quick, and is hit on the midriff. They try and sneak the single, and Khawaja and Shami collide mid-pitch as Shami tries to get to the ball. He turns around, throws at the bowler's end, and misses with Khawaja not even halfway down the pitch | May 5, 2016
4.5 Yadav to Khawaja, SIX. RPS | May 5, 2016
