Yasir Arafat to Sharma, FOUR, full-toss, it's quite high though, slogged away through midwicket. Welcome boundary for India

18.2

Yasir Arafat to Sharma, FOUR, another full-toss, his one homing in on Rohit. He moves to leg, opens the face of the bat and chops the ball down past short third-man. Quality shot this.

18.3

Yasir Arafat to Sharma, 2 runs, yorker jammed in on the pads, dug out to the vacant mid-on region and there'll be runs here

18.4

Yasir Arafat to Sharma, 1 run, full and on the pads, Rohit gives himself some space to free his arms and drives through midwicket

18.5

Yasir Arafat to IK Pathan, no run, yorker jammed in on the pads from around the stumps, all Irfan can do is defend this back to the bowler

18.6

Yasir Arafat to IK Pathan, 2 runs, full-toss just outside the off, driven inside out through cover for a couple more. Just one over left now and you have to think India are a bit short of what they would have liked from this innings after winning the toss and choosing to bat
