    18.1 gone, against the run of play. Short ball, getting up to chest height, and the pull was on, and Rohit plays that shot as well as anyone, but this time he hits it straight to midwicket, at chest height. May have skidded on to him and cramped him for room a little 80/3
    6.2 out comes the Cottrell salute. Back of a length on leg stump, tucks Rahul up a bit. He was looking to flick it, but is a mite early into the shot, and the ball takes the leading edge to lob straight up and settle into Hetmyer's hands at short mid-on. 21/1
    6.6 castled him! What a huge moment in the match this. Cottrell has two in the over, but the second one is Kohli. Rolled his fingers over it, back of a length outside off, Kohli was looking to open the face and run it down, but it takes the inside edge and clatters into stumps. 25/2
    36.4 flicked straight to Pollard at midwicket. Completely against the run of play. Back of a length outside off, and perhaps it stuck in the pitch a bit. Iyer flicked but didn't get his shape perfectly, and pops a dolly of a catch to one of the safest fielders in the world. End of a fine innings 194/4
    39.4 flicked straight to deep square leg. Offcutter on a fuller length, Pant went down and flicked it powerfully, almost Kohli-like, generating distance and power, but not quite enough, as he picks out the man in the deep. End of a very good innings 210/5
    47.3 length ball angled across him, he horribly mis-times his swipe, and it lobs up to Pollard at long-on, who holds on easily 269/6
    47.4 fuller on the stumps, jams his bat down in time to send it to midwicket. Quick single taken, safe despite the fielder running in and effecting a direct hit at the striker's end. wait a minute, replays show Jadeja was out of the crease! The umpire didn't go upstairs though. And now they're going up to the third umpire. Which means Jadeja will be ruled out. Bit bizarre sequence of events. Wrong process, but right decision? If a West Indies fielder appealed when the direct hit was effected, there is still a justification for going up to the third umpire, even if late in the proceedings. But is it okay to go up after having seen the replay? That's one for the law mandarins to figure out. 269/7
    49.3 length ball on the stumps, Dube clears his front leg and swipes across the line. Doesn't get hold of it. Slower ball that stuck in the pitch and he gets more height than distance, holes out to long-off 282/8

    4.1 big appeal for lbw, and it's given. Ambris doesn't review. Length ball angling into the stumps, and Ambris looks to flick. He was playing for outswing, I think - a dangerous thing to do if you're playing across the line like that - and the ball keeps going with the angle instead and brushes front pad before hitting his back pad. Hitting middle and leg, according to ball-tracking. No front-foot stride at all from Ambris 11/1
    38.4 gone. Short now, climbs to shoulder height, and this time he can't clear the rope with his pull. Has to work against the over-the-wicket angle, and ends up picking out Iyer on the midwicket boundary. Generous applause from the Chennai crowd as Hetmyer walks back to the dressing room 229/2
