    43.3 caught behind and the salute is out. But soon after that, as Rohit walks off, Cottrell pats the guy on his shoulder saying well played. That's classy. So, the dismissal. Rohit is a master of the cross-bat shots. But here he is only able to feather a nick through to the keeper. And now he walks off to the dressing room for a well deserved drink. What an innings. This was a slow pitch and yet he never seemed to mistime the ball 292/3
    36.6 outside edge and taken at third man. Rahul has to go but he walks off to deafening applause. he won't be shutting his ears against that. Gets a pat on the head from his opening partner as he walks off. With so little overs left, he had to go for shots like these, the low percentage back away slash. 227/1
    37.3 gone first ball! He'd been in full gear for the entire afternoon. Even the helmet. He'd been celebrating each of the landmarks of the openers. Even raised his own bat when Rahul raised his. But when it comes to his turn, he's been done in. Pollard's slower short ball outside off results in a top edge and a simple catch at short midwicket. The West Indies captain races off Imran Tahir style in celebration 232/2
    48.6 strangle down leg! Cottrell continues banging it into the pitch. Iyer continues to walk across his crease to target the fine leg area. He gets too fine a contact on the ball with his pull shot and it goes straight to the keeper 373/5
    47.3 that's too high, and not long enough and it's taken by Pooran running in from the sweeper cover. Good work from Paul. Digs it into the pitch, doesn't put any pace on the ball, keeps it wide of the left-hander too and for once Pant mis-hits and it stays inside the ground. Glorious little innings to propel India to an unreal total 365/4

    10.6 straight down Iyer's throat at deep square! Lewis looks to fetch this pull from outside off, but gets no timing or power behind the shot. Got a top-edge and this turned out to be a simple catch. 61/1
    32.4 excellent catch, right on the edge of the boundary. Kohli again. At deep midwicket. He tracks the ball all the way - a fairly hard hit sweep shot against the wrong 'un - waits on the edge of the rope, leans back over it, takes it with both hands above his head and signals the wicket by sticking his forefinger up in the air. Superb stuff 210/6
    13.1 outstanding work from Iyer, deserves all the plaudits for converting a sure-shot boundary into a wicket. What athleticism! Simply wow. Talk about making an impact on the field when the fielding has come in for some sharp criticism. This is cut hard, cut very well by Hetmyer. Iyer from point hares back, absolutely sprints and puts in a full-length dive just as the ball is about to cross the ropes. The even better part comes next: Iyer quickly tumbles over the ropes and then recovers to come back into the field of play and fire a rocket throw on the bounce to Jadeja who whips the bails off to catch Hetmyer well short of the crease. 73/2
    15.6 jaffaaaaaaa and Chase looks completely freaked. His off stump is gone. His mouth is in the shape of an O as he looks back at the bowler then down at the pitch then away to the dressing room as he walks back. What a ball from Jadeja. Gives it a good old rip and even in these conditions it grips the pitch and turns a mile. Chase is squared up, originally playing the angle and looking for runs through midwicket then never in a position to adjust as the ball rags away 86/3
    29.2 top edge and its taken! Second innings Shami? Close enough! He digs it into the wicket. It's also outside off so Pooran, who goes for the pull, is not only struggling to get on top of the ball, he has to drag it as well. Low-percetage shot results in a mistake and Kuldeep skirting on the long leg boundary takes an excellent, composed catch. End of a fabuous innings from a talent who will no doubt light up the T20 World Cup next year. 192/4
    29.3 two in two! India have indeed come roaring back! And Vizag absolutely loves it. The horns are out. The cheers are back. Shami's brought them into uproar with a beautiful over. This ball, the perfect Test match ball, pitched up outside off, swinging away even, draws Pollard to play away from his body and nick through to the keeper. Both captains out for golden ducks today 192/5
    32.5 have they got him? Looks like they have. Holder deceived in flight as he looks to drive against the turn. Except, this is a googly that he hasn't picked. Ends up dragging his feet out of the crease. As he tries to get back, the back foot is in the air and Pant effects an excellent stumping. 210/7
    43.3 knocks him over with a yorker. End of a fabulous day for Shami, India level the series 1-1. He backs away to carve this over the off side, ends up backing too far away, and so all Shami had to do was be accurate, which he was. The result: broken stumps. 280/10
    32.6 edged and gone! The second of his career. This is a wrong'un from around the stumps, lands this on middle and off. Alzarri looks to work it to the leg side, and closes the bat face, gets a thick outside edge and Jadhav takes a good catch at second slip. Kuldeep is the first Indian to take two international hat-tricks . A good time to remind you all that Kuldeep also has a hat-trick for India at the Under-19 level. 210/8
    40.5 swung away but only as far as Kohli at deep midwicket. As easy as they come for him. 260/9
