    16.4 great one-handed catch at first-slip by Ishant Sharma! flighted delivery, and Basu closed the face of the bat in an attempt to play it towards the open spaces on the leg side. The ball took the outside edge and flew to the right of Ishant where he plucked a good one-handed catch. What is Ishant doing at slip? We have got the answer 71/3
    7.4 walks in the shot. Oh. Big misunderstanding! Goswami played it towards the off side and immediately set off. Basu took a few steps, but then turned his back, while Goswami ran all the way through to the non-strikers end. The throw was lobbed to the keeper, who took the bails off with a smile on his face 32/1
    12.4 that was an unnecessary attempt to hoick the ball towards the leg side. Ojha held the length back and the ball took the bottom-edge to the wicketkeeper. The batsmen were scoring with ease here, so there was no need there for a risky shot. The field was open, with lots of opportunities for singles everywhere. 63/2
    37.1 slower ball, and Saha drives it in the air towards extra cover, where Badrinath comes behind the ball, and catches it on the second attempt after the ball lobs out of his hands on the first. Immediate success for Ishant, his third wicket of the innings. 176/7
    22 short and rising delivery, Das gets into a tangle, trying to steer it to third man, and the ball went through past the edge to the keeper. There was no real appeal from anybody, but the umpire raised his finger. Not very clear if there was an edge there, slightly unlucky for Das 88/4
    22.4 flighted ball, slog sweeps it hard wide of long-on but not wide enough. The fielder on the boundary moves a few paces towards the right and stretches to take it inches inside the ropes. Awana took a well-judged catch there 89/5
    23.5 short, outside off and instead of going towards off side, Das plays the tennis forehand again. He loses control and the ball takes the top-edge and swirls down to the right of mid-on where Rahane takes an easy catch. List A wicket no. 101 for Ishant 92/6
    41.1 that is the end, Nandi, made some room and wanted to maul this over the infield on the off side, but he loses his bat as he gets a leading edge which lobs straight to point 193/10
    38 edged, he left three balls in a row, but didn't want to give a maiden to Ishant. A nothing shot, as he tried to drive a good length ball outside off without getting anywhere close to it. 176/8
    38.5 another edge, and another catch for Karthik behind the stumps. Drives at a length ball and plays away from the body, similar dismissal to Sarkar's in the last over. 181/9
