Ehsan Nawaz805016.25276111
29.2 to AT Rayudu, caught-behind and that's a good grab from McKechnie. It's a bouncer, high above the batsman's front shoulder. He's looking to guide that to third man with an upper cut and has got a glove on that. The keeper has taken it with a reverse cup - while being up to the stumps. Good take. Some checking on the front foot of the bowler and he has just managed to keep it legal.. 161/2
Aizaz Khan804115.12223010
49.4 to SN Thakur, holes out to long-off. Offcutter at a length outside off, near-impossible to clear the ground when that is bowled. Thakur looks to do that with a slog, he slices it up for Carter who takes it cleanly. 282/7
Ehsan Khan1006526.50236200
7.4 to RG Sharma, taken at mid-off. This is nicely engineered by the bowler. Floats it up at off stump, no cover for the slog on the leg side so Rohit wants to take that option. But he has played three cross-batted hits and failed to connect them cleanly today, and the fourth one is the downfall. He's not to the pitch and he gets a leading edge. Simple catch... 45/1
41.4 to MS Dhoni, got him! Thin edge and another good catch from McKechnie. Length ball skids through outside off. Dhoni stays leg side of it and looks to stab late for the one that turns. No such luck. The crowd reverts to original state. Except that one kid with an Indian jersey who is trying to rip his seat out in anger.. 242/4
Nadeem Ahmed1003903.90321100
Nizakat Khan1015015.0001100
Kinchit Shah903934.33232000
40.4 to S Dhawan, taken at point. Top edge as he slashes across the line. Gentle lob for the fielder there. Length outside off from Kinchit, attempt to go midwicket by Dhawan. Wasn't behind that one. Good ODI innings. The crowd is already chanting for Dhoni.... 240/3
42.3 to KD Karthik, holes out at deep midwicket! India are crumbling against the slow bowlers in their bid to make the big runs. Not a bad strategy at all from Hong Kong o a slow pitch. And not a bad catch either out there - Babar Hayat sprints a long way to his right, holds on at waist height and puts in a nice hip-first slide to maintain his shape and hold on. DK was looking to pump that length ball over deep midwicket with a slog sweep. 248/5
48.4 to B Kumar, taken at midwicket. A third wicket for Kinchit. Short, sliding across, slow. Bhuvi looks to pull and gets it off the toe-end. A good lunging catch to the left too. 277/6

Khaleel Ahmed1004834.80355110
35.4 to Nizakat Khan, he's given him lbw! Nizakat has reviewed it. Appeared to have been struck on off and middle stump as he looked to flick this length ball coming into him...no bat on this. And it is whacking middle stump. Khaleel's debut wicket has knocked Hong Kong back. Length ball that Nizakat missed. Trapped in his crease too, there was some pace on that. He won't be around to see Hong Kong through today, but his getting out in the 36th over is the story - he has set them up for a miracle. A knock to remember.. 175/2
39.1 to C Carter, guides it to Dhoni. This is top bowling. 138kph ball cramping him in the corridor. He wants to tickle it to the third man boundary but that hurried him and he's caught inside the line. 191/3
49.1 to Ehsan Khan, that's his third wicket! Slower ball on middle, and he tries to muscle this towards the leg side. Takes a top-edge and Khaleel calls for the catch near short mid on. 256/8
Shardul Thakur4041010.25104113
Yuzvendra Chahal1004634.60281110
40.2 to Babar Hayat, Hayat walks! Tossed up outside off, and he tries to drive away from his body. The ball turns away, and takes an outside edge!. 199/4
44.2 to KD Shah, full outside off, and he slaps this away from his body. Slices the shot, and it's popped up it in the air. Dhawan gets under it from point and composes himself to complete the catch. 227/5
44.4 to Aizaz Khan, ful on off, and spinning inwards! The wrong'un traps him right in front of off stump, and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. Hong Kong six down, and now India are surely favourites once again. 228/6
Kuldeep Yadav1024224.20362210
34.1 to Anshuman Rath, got him at extra cover! Rath has picked out extra cover with a gentle drive. Soft is accurate to describe that. Full on off stump, lofted with the turn and straight to the fielder. Nothing soft about the overall impact of his innings. A stupendous knock. But is this the in for India? It's not easy to get in on this pitch. 174/1
46.3 to SS McKechnie, stumped! Tries to swing through to the leg side, but Kuldeep's floater lands outside off, and then spins further away. Sneaks between bat and body, and MSD easily takes the bails off. 50th ODI wicket for Kuldeep!. 240/7
