    3.5 taken at mid-on. That was an ugly looking shot, especially in contrast with de Kock going so well at the other end. Fuller on the stumps, mis-times his hoick badly and ends up toe-ending to the fielder who was at the edge of the circle. 31/1
    11.2 what. A. Catch. Kohli takes it, running to his left from mid-off and then finishing with a tumble. It's just short of a length from Saini, an offcutter angling across the stumps. De Kock clears his front leg and looks to go over midwicket, and ends up slicing it back over the bowler's head instead, a little to the off side, and Kohli had a lot of ground to cover, but he makes it up with a brilliant bit of athleticism 88/2
    17.1 slower ball, just short of a a good length outside off. Shapes for the cover drive initially, but he realises too late that it's the slower ball, and then tries to adjust and drag the ball over the leg side, but he doesn't catch it well at all. Off the outside half of the bat, and it balloons to the man at mid-on 126/4
    12.1 gone, another excellent catch. It looks less spectacular when Jadeja does it, because, well, he does it so often. Length ball fired in towards middle and leg. Looks to play the angle and work it into the leg side, but this one grips and bit and turns. The leading edge pops in the general direction of the non-striker's head, and Jadeja flings himself across and grabs it with two hands 90/3

    18.1 bowled him. India have bowled this line to Miller very well today - pitching on or just outside leg stump, hitting middle stump or thereabouts. They've given him very little room to free his arms, while still angling the ball away from him. This is a slower ball, pretty full, and he looks to clear his front leg and hoick over the leg side, and misses. Other batsmen may have tried to hit this straighter 129/5

    3.5 rapped dead in front. Looked like a slower one, and he got it to swing appreciably into Rohit. He was looking to deposit this into the legside with a flick, but completely missed it and that's an easy decision for the umpire. 33/1
    11.4 what an outstanding catch by Miller at long-on. We've had two great catches in this match already, but this one comfortably outstrips them. This was a flat delivery on the stumps, Dhawan stepped down and powered his drive straight. It was heading for a boundary until an airborn Miller intervened. He didn't have much time to react or build momentum by sprinting, just a couple of steps to his right, but still dived full length to his right and plucked the ball out of the air with his right hand. Stunning. 94/2

    13.4 he's picked out short fine leg and he's not going to be happy watching that replay. This was a gimme ball, short of a length on leg stump, and Pant got down to smack it into the leg side. Could have almost hit it anywhere, but picks out the man unerringly. This is not going to be good for the already swirling debates about his shot selection... but Fortuin has a wicket on debut 104/3
