    2.3 edged and gone! Seifert premeditates the pull, Bhuvi cleverly bowls this closer to the stumps to deny him any room, only manages to get a thin inside edge and Dhoni does the rest. 15/1
    5.2 this has been hit straight to cover. Backed away, got underneath the length, hit it really well but didn't get the elevation. Good catch, must have surely stung Rohit. 41/2
    7.5 it's the fizz off the pitch that has done Williamson in. Shapes to pull but this skids on, keeps a tad low, and hits him flush on the right thigh as he swiveled back. As plumb as an lbw call can get, no doubts whatsoever this time around. India in total control now. 50/4
    5.6 Real drama here! Mitchell has been given out and he has reviewed upon the insistence of his captain. There is a huge spot on hotspot as ball passes the bat - possibly because there is an inside edge - and it wasn't bat hitting pad. But DRS comes back as all three reds, ball tracking shows this would've hit middle of middle so Mitchell has to walk back. As soon as the decision was given, Williamson quickly let his dismay known to the umpire and Mitchell was asked to stop, even as he started to make the long walk back. Dhoni has a word with Williamson and the umpire, Rohit has a confused look, but in the end, Mitchell has to go. The only way he could've survived was if Rohit called him back. 43/3
    18.6 direct hit by Vijay from long-on to find Taylor short at the non-striker's end. It was fuller on the stumps, Santner hits it towards the left of long-on, Taylor is sprinting back for the second, puts in the dive but all in vain 153/6
    15.4 and he hits it straight to Rohit at extra cover, fuller outside off, hits it hard but the bat turns in his hand at the point of impact, perhaps was too close as well to get that elevation but his innings has helped restore the momentum 127/5
    19.2 fuller outside off, looks to hit it down the ground, gets an inside edge on to the stumps 154/7
    not out
    19.6 slower one, length on the stumps, Southee looks to drag it on the leg side and misses, Khaleel hits 158/8
