Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Imam-ul-Haq, 2.1 ov), 2-3 (Fakhar Zaman, 4.1 ov), 3-85 (Babar Azam, 21.2 ov), 4-96 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 24.5 ov), 5-100 (Shoaib Malik, 26.6 ov), 6-110 (Asif Ali, 28.1 ov), 7-121 (Shadab Khan, 32.6 ov), 8-158 (Faheem Ashraf, 41.1 ov), 9-160 (Hasan Ali, 42.1 ov), 10-162 (Usman Shinwari, 43.1 ov)
2.1 to Imam-ul-Haq, charges down and edges it to Dhoni, the stadium erupts! Imam danced down and Bhuvneshwar pitched it just short of length, with a tight line again, the ball rose on Imam as he swung the ball and kissed the outside edge to head to Dhoni. 2/1
4.1 to Fakhar Zaman, Fakhar takes the chance after all that pressure and he skies a top-edge to midwicket! Short of length from Bhuvneshwar, not one to be pulled easily, Fakhar takes the risk, top-edges and it goes really high. Chahal goes a bit to his left and back from midwicket, the sun in his eyes and he just about holds on to it. Rohit waits and then holds his hands together with a beaming smile. 3/2
42.1 to Hasan Ali, that looked like a handsome lofted drive down the ground with a follow through, but Hasan didn't quite middle it to clear mid on and hands an easy catch. An offcutter from Bhuvneshwar, driven down and DK takes a few steps back to get under it. 160/9
41.1 to Faheem Ashraf, holes out to deep midwicket. He starts the new spell with the slower ball, pitches it on length well outside off and Faheem bends down to go for a bit shot and all he manages is a skier. Easy catch for Dhawan in the deep. 158/8
43.1 to Usman Shinwari, right in the block hole, gets the base of off stump and the show's over! Quick and low, accurate stuff from Bumrah and Usman's bat comes down a bit too late. 162/10
21.2 to Babar Azam, right through him and that's hit top of off! A classic delivery from Kuldeep to show how he deceives batsmen. The line was just a bit different from the first ball, it pitched on middle and Babar stepped down to flick it away with the turn, but it was a wrong'un and missed the outside edge by a distance, and goes on to hit the off stump. Dhoni is standing there looking at off stump, no need for a stumping. The replay also shows there was enough flight to make the batsman think for a mili-second, which made Babar step out and he paid the price. 85/3
24.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, superb effort from Pandey at wide long-on! Sarfraz went for the aerial route for the full delivery, he was tempted and he tried to go wide of long on. But Pandey ran a fair bit to his right, right at the edge of the boundary, got both hands on the ball but was going to run over the rope. He did that too, but by throwing the ball inside just in time, and then came back inside the field of play to grab it again. Much tougher chance than the one Malik gave, and taken very well. 96/4
28.1 to Asif Ali, he's edged it to Dhoni and he's walking! Such an innocuous delivery from Jadhav, no turn whatsoever. Shortish and wide outside off, it goes straight after pitching, Asif cuts and manages only an outside edge right into Dhoni's gloves. 110/6
32.6 to Shadab Khan, is that stumped? The umpire has asked for the third umpire but Shadab ain't waiting! Drifted this outside off, and Shadab came forward for the cover drive. The ball sneaks past his outside edge, and Dhoni whisks the bails off. Yep, his back leg is outside the crease.. 121/7

16.3 to S Dhawan, straight to point! Short ball outside off, there was room too and he cuts it nowhere but straight to Babar Azam at backward point. Dhawan will be miffed for giving that away and he's smiling probably for that reason while walking back. They check for the no ball and Faheem Ashraf has done fine. 104/2
13.1 to RG Sharma, a legspinner to Rohit and he's gone first ball! Rohit will be thinking of IPL 2017 and how. A googly first ball, it looked like a loopy legbreak pitched up by Shadab, Rohit leaned forward to the length and stuck his bat out but left a big gap between bat and pad and the ball went right through to hit middle and leg. Rohit looks back in almost disbelief to see what all went through the gate. 86/1
