0.4 the full ball has actually done it, Gayle is caught at midwicket! Pitched up on the stumps, Gayle tried to clear midwicket with a heave but managed an inside edge which went around chest height, straight to Hooda. The umpires ask him to wait to check the no ball and Southee's heel is behind the crease 10/1
    2.2 draws the edge this time, Southee strikes again and removes the other opener! Similar delivery shaping away from Kohli, this is how he was getting out in England too last year, drove away from the body with the swing and edged it behind for Samson to take an excellent catch to his right 19/2
    13.5 oh that's a horrible call for a single, Ab is run out! DK drove the fullish ball on the pads straight to midwicket, there wasn't any run there but both of them took off, then both hesitated, AB almost turned around when he was haflway and decided to go for the run. An accurate throw from Hooda meant Samson only had to take the bails off after collecting it. AB put in a dive but was miles outside 124/4
    11.1 given lbw, Binny breaks the stand! Mandeep tried to paddle the full delivery from around off to the leg side behind square, didn't connect on that one and was hit on the back foot. Maybe it hit him just outside the off stump 93/3
    16.2 full and outside the leg stump, he whips it on the leg side and there's a run out chance! DK turned around and wanted the second run that didn't exist, he was sent back by Sarfaraz and another accurate throw means another run out. It was a no ball too 152/5
    not out
    18.5 slightly short, it's out there to be pulled and Wiese sends it straight to the deep-midwicket fielder for an easy catch 184/6
    19.6 slow and full on the stumps, he drives it down the ground for one. Harshal comes back for the second but Sarfaraz doesn't move and they get 200 200/7
