    8.6 gone now, Uthappa eager to leave his crease, this one does not turn, it is a touch flatter, quicker and he is caught in a tangle as he stops, ball squeezes in past the bat to hit the stumps, had no room in the end, could not even attempt to push it away, was in such a bad position 33/4
    0.6 Pandey's tentativeness has consumed him, just shuffling across in the crease and prodding at a length ball around off, and he plays on 1/1
    4.6 that is a steepler, and Mahmood has struck in his first over, Suman was going nowhere, he tried to lift this pitched up ball down the ground, ended up hitting high and straight down into the hands of mid off, who judged it to perfection 21/2
    7.4 on middle now, good length, he waits on the crease and works it through square leg, but hello, what a throw from the deep, right into the captain's gloves inches from the stumps, has Samuels' dive saved him, nope, it hasn't, perfect throw really, Gilly didn't have to move an inch 29/3
    13.3 what a blinder at fine leg! Gurkeerat the man, he didn;t have too much time, Taylor had swung this hard off his pads and it looked to be a certain boundary, Gurkeerat ran quickly to his right, the ball would have still beaten him, so he dives full-length, takes it, and does not let it pop out as he crashes back on to earth 53/6
    9.6 brute, what a brute from Awana, angled in, back of a length, and jags across to open up the right-hander, and Gilchrist celebrates as soon as he takes the ball, not much Angelo could have done with that, except hoping he didn;t edge it 38/5
    not out
    16.1 Ryan Harris back, and flattens Marsh's stumps first ball, Marsh has a slog from the crease to a length ball around off, it moves in a bit, and he gets a fatal inside edge 78/7
    19.2 swing and a miss, it is a slower one on off from Mahmood, and off it is that takes a walk 93/8
    19.6 tries the big sweep again, does not get hold of it, the ball rolls towards the keeper on off, there is an overthrow, long on runs forward, picks it up and hits the stumps at the non-striker's end, and Pune can't reach 100 99/9
