16.3 to KL Rahul, bowled him! Up go the biceps! Rahul was targeting short fine leg there, and he moved across for the scoop, but he's beaten by the slower yorker, and zing go the bails. 147/2
Rashid Khan403609.0041200
Karim Janat10717.0021000
14.4 to RG Sharma, gone, straight to extra-cover. Fullish, just outside off. Was there to drive on the up, but he ends up hitting it straight to the man at extra-cover, flat and at around waist height. Who will India send in now?. 140/1

Mohammed Shami403238.00133210
2.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, taken at mid-off. Shahzad looked out of sorts in his short stay. This is good length and swung into his legs. He's static as he closes the face to try and flick in square leg's direction. Gets a leading edge that's pretty easy for Ashwin. 13/1
18.1 to Mohammad Nabi, looks to bowl the wide line again, but he doesn't get it wide enough. Ends up working out for him in the end. Slower length ball, and Nabi is a touch too early on this hoick. Drags it a little squarer than he wants, I think, straight to the man at deep midwicket. Long boundary on that side too, I think. 126/6
18.3 to Rashid Khan, slower length ball outside off, and he's slogged it more or less straight to long-on. Flat hit, and Hardik runs a few yards to his left and catches it in front of his chest. 127/7
Jasprit Bumrah402516.25132120
3.1 to Hazratullah Zazai, bagged by mid-on running to the left. Thakur calm under it. Offcutter at a good length on middle stump, gets low and looks for the slog sweep again, but ends up slicing this. 13/2
Hardik Pandya2023011.5033100
Ravindra Jadeja301916.3381100
6.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, this looks a gorgeous shot but it is not far enough. Full and at off stump. Steps out and is right behind with a lovely extension of the arms, using the angle to pick this up in the wide long-on direction. But he hasn't reached the pitch of that and gets a lot of elevation and not too much distance. Pandya does well to track it to his right and hold on at the line. 48/3
Ravichandran Ashwin401423.50120010
9.3 to Gulbadin Naib, big appeal and this looks plumb. Carrom ball, full and headed for middle stump. Naib gets down for the sweep and cops this on the back thigh, right in front of middle stump. He won't bother reviewing that. His struggle against spin is over. 59/4
11.5 to Najibullah Zadran, gone, plays down the wrong line with the reverse-sweep. Plays for the offbreak, I think, but this one drifts in a little, pitches around off stump and just keeps going with the angle to end up sneaking behind him and rattling the stumps. Ashwin's really got the batters on a string today. Seemed to be the seam-up arm ball. 69/5
