3.2 Umesh dupes Warner with a cutter. It does not arrive, Warner rocks away outside leg in a bid to open up the off side. He is early into the shot and plops a catch to short cover, another Yadav dives forward to complete the catch. Soft, soft dismissal. Just a chip to the fielder 23/2
    2.4 Morne generates typical extra bounce. Uthappa pouches a smart catch. They check for a no-ball again. Morne has corrected his error. He is okay here and finds some redemption. Dug in and angled away outside off, dug in further as Dhawan danced out. He slashes again and the thick edge flies to Uthappa, leaping to his left. He comes down with the ball in one hand 18/1
    5.6 Umesh lets out a roar! Henriques is caught on the crease. Full and serves in to hit the back pad in front of middle, the batsman can't make contact with a flick. He falls over 36/3
    18.4 Shaikib runs to his left from long-on and pockets a catch. Gambhir is impressed, he claps. Back of a length on middle and leg, swung into the hands of Shakib. Morgan is cramped for room. Morgan goes. Nonetheless, he has added a semblance if respectability to the innings 128/6
    9.4 #MuscleRussell with the purple mohawk strikes. Full on off, rolls his fingers across this slower one. Hooda can't manufacture his own pace. He shovels it in the air to long-on. Umesh hangs on to the catch 50/4
    17.3 Russell shows why he is a rock star, again! He runs backwards and to his left from long-on and such is his speed that he almost manages to over-run the straight hit over the bowler's head! He is able to brake in time though and reaches back with his left hand to catch the ball on the edge of the boundary. Just before his momentum takes him over the advertisement skirting, however, Russell transfers the ball to his right hand and flicks it back into play as he jumps over the boundary. Piyush Chawla had made the run from long-off as well and he reaches out with his left hand as the ball lobs over his head and taps it down to catch it on the second attempt. Top athleticism from Russell, phenomenal tag-team effort 117/5
    19.5 slower short ball outside off, 117ks, flat-batted hit down the ground. Reddy wants two again. He is caught short, despite a full-length dive. The throw from long-on was flat and hard to wicketkeeper Uthappa 141/7
