    14.3 wrong'un, short one, pitching on off stump and spinning further away. Looks to fetch a pull from a long way outside off stump and only manages to slice it high in the air and into the waiting hands of the long-on fielder 111/3
    2.3 straight back to the bowler! Bit of an odd dismissal, really. Rohit used his feet, didn't quite get to the pitch, pushed with hard hands, it was a googly, got an inside edge into his pad which looped back to Gopal 11/1
    13.5 there's the answer. Dhawal Kulkarni's on the fine leg boundary, and he runs to his right and takes a simple one after Suryakumar miscues a hook off a Binny bouncer that gets up over his right shoulder 108/2

    19.1 well, we have a review for lbw first ball! Yorker, and Pandya plays all around it, looking to flick it away. Given not out, and Smith reviews without too much hesitation. Hits him on the front boot... Impact in line with middle and leg, and ball-tracking says it'll crash into leg stump. Bye bye, Hardik 152/5
    16.5 got him, huge wicket. Another slower cutter, aiming at middle stump. Pollard gets on the front foot for another big hit, plays slightly across it - looking to go over midwicket rather than long-on - and ends up playing early, creating a big gap for the ball to barge through 124/4

    3.4 caught at cover! Chahar hits back. Full at off stump, just held in the pitch enough, Rahane came forward and couldn't keep his push down 39/1
    7.2 caught at long-on! It was all looking so good for Samson. Well bowled by Chahar, was brave enough to give it some air, Samson tried to launch it straight, sliced across the shot and provided Pollard a simple catch 76/2

    7.6 dragged on! A gamechanging over? Not the best of shots from Stokes, looking to cut this from tight on off stump, gets a bottom edge into the stumps. But was another lovely piece of bowling. Gripped and spun back into Stokes to further cramp the shot 77/3
    17.4 length ball angling into off stump, clipped away to the left of deep midwicket, and is that a run-out at the bowler's end? They risk a second run against Ben Cutting's rocket arm, and even though it isn't a direct hit, the throw is so flat and accurate, straight into Pandya's hands near the stumps, that Parag is at least six inches short 147/4
    18.1 make that 0, 0, 0, 0. Bumrah's deadly inward angle and skiddiness does in another batsman. Turner's front leg moves half-forward and across the stumps, and he ends up playing around his front pad looking to work it into the leg side. The angle beats his inside edge, and it's the plumblest of lbw decisions thereafter 153/5
