3.30pm What a turnaround this has been in Kolkata. When Pakistan's openers were making a mockery of India's bowlers, 320 seemed a realistic target for them. Hafeez's aggressive innings ended when he attempted a wild swipe after which Pakistan's innings was sucked off its momentum. Even the hugely promising Jamshed, who went on to make his third successive century against India, started finding it difficult to score briskly. The much-maligned Ravindra Jadeja shone again in a comeback game, taking three important wickets, while Ishant Sharma had a rare good outing in limited-overs cricket. There is a bit of uneven bounce in the track, and 250 should be a competitive score, especially considering the quality of Pakistan's bowling. Join us at 4.10pm for what should be a gripping chase.
