2.3 gone! Kohli decides to take on McGrath by skipping down but only succeeds in swiping the ball to Manhas at midwicket, who takes a simple catch 17/1
    3.5 gone! short outside off, pulled away and they take a most reckless single, Manhas gets an accurate throw and Geeves does the rest, there was some hesitation in the running and that was suicidal from Yusuf. Needs to run back all the way. Third umpire is called up and that's gone. 27/2
    6.2 Watson slogs the slower ball over cover and it drops in no man's land, but attempting a tight run he has to go on his way, Bhatia accepting a good flat throw at the nonstrikers' end 41/3
    10.3 simple as can be! A struggling Kaif reaches across and paddles the ball from just outside off stump straight into the hands of Geeves at short fine leg 57/5
    7.4 and the big man goes! Lehmann shuffles across and tries to turn a straight one past square leg but misses, and even before Maharoof can complete his appeal umpire Pratapkumar shoots up the finger, it pitched on leg stump and looked out, though Lehmann didn't think so 47/4
    14.2 but this is Vettori, and he's been around for a while now! The wily veteran fires it in fast and flat and Jadeja, exposing the stumps in an attempt to steer it away, fails to get bat on it much to Vettori's pleasure ...smart bowling after being carted for six 93/7
    12.1 cleaned up! Rawat goes attempting one of those en vogue paddle-sweeps, but fails to make any contact whatsoever and pays the price for exposing leg stump 71/6
    not out
    17.1 goes for a booming drive over extra-cover, gets a thick inside-edge onto the back leg and it proceeds to roll onto the base of his stumps, dislodging the bails 110/8
