    9.2 edged behind, gets him with the slower ball! Superb comeback from Chahar, gets him his maiden wicket for India...Short of a length, cutting his fingers over it, Roy went back and tried to cut it late to third man, just flicked off the toe of the bat through to Dhoni. Still, a mighty fine knock from Roy 103/2
    7.5 bowled 'im! Kaul rattles the woodwork... Big swing and a miss from Buttler, who was aiming for cow corner, it was on a hittable length but the thing about hittable balls is: you have to hit 'em. The partnership is broken, Kaul's red bandanna to the rescue 94/1
    13.6 gottim, tickled to the keeper! Two in the over for Pandya, another cutter and it cramped him, Hales trying to guide it off the back foot, just deflected through to the keeper 140/4
    13.2 straight up again... taken this time, though Dhoni demolishes the stumps in doing so! That came down almost exactly where the batsman was standing, a wild hoick from Morgan, Dhoni trotted in to take the catch, then performed a little forward roll for effect after clattering the stumps. India all smiles this time 134/3
    17.4 back of a length, Stokes swats at it... and lobs a catch to mid-off! Kohli takes the catch, that's another for Panyda, mixing it up well and bagging his third wicket. The dangerous Stokes departs 177/5
    17.6 pitched up, Bairstow throws the bat - and nicks to the keeper! He's missed out on a half-volley there, really, not quite in the right position and reaching for it, pace was up and Dhoni swallowed the edge 181/6
    18.3 lights up the stumps, Willey plays on! Full, 90mph just outside off, Willey digs it out - but it deflects into the timber 183/7
    19.6 swing and a miss from Rashid... and Dhoni then nails the stumps to run out Jordan! Prophetic! Smart stuff from the guru Mahi, prevents a run off the final ball with a bullet arm 198/9
    19.3 goes for the ramp - but deflects another straight to Dhoni! Plunkett admonishes himself, tried to be cute when brute power is his, er, strength. Might have been a cutter from Kaul, gets his second wicket 194/8

    2.1 super catch! Big bonus for England. This is full, angled into the pads, Dhawan goes to flick it away but sends it just within reach of Ball at short fine leg and the tall fast bowler pulls out a dive to his left. Hasn't been a great series for Dhawan 21/1
    5.2 Don't believe that, it is a spectacular catch! Jordan has pulled off one of the great catches. Rahul got underneath this, a fuller delivery, and aimed to send it over wide long-on. It looked to be travelling all the way, but didn't quite have the legs. Still, Jordan had to make huge ground from long-on and then flung himself full length to add another brilliant catch to his collection 62/2
    14.5 he's grabbed another! It was straight to him, but it was hit with some power. A full ball at off stump, Kohli drives and it's right back at Jordan in his followthrough 151/3
