Ajitesh Argal601312.16302000
3.1 to GH Worker, India strike early....gets it to swing in a little on the pads, pitches on a fullish length, Worker chips it on the up and spoons it straight to Tiwary at mid-on. A half-hearted stroke really. 7/1
Siddarth Kaul904324.77302140
38.6 to TG Southee, Finally Kaul has his man. He pushed Southee onto the backfoot with his in dippers and finally delivers the death blow as he bowls a yorker which comprehensively beats Southee and castles his leg stump. Intelligent piece of bowling by Kaul. 137/5
40.1 to GJ Morgan, that's two in two.... pitches outside the off stump and gets the ball to drift in with the angle, Morgan gets across his stumps to work it to the on side and misses, the ball strikes him low on the front pad and the umpire has an easy decision to give. That would have hit middle and leg. 139/6
Ravindra Jadeja612113.50211000
11.6 to ML Guptill-Bunce, pitches on leg stump and straightens, Bunce goes for the sweep a little too early and misses, the ball clips the leg stump. 29/2
Iqbal Abdulla502204.40140110
Virat Kohli712723.85260140
26.3 to KS Williamson, clever bowling..... Kohli delivers from wide of the crease and slides down the leg side, Williamson tries to work it through the line to the on side but misses, he strays outside his crease and an alert Goswami whips off the bails with his right hand. The third umpire has a look. 86/3
28.1 to FJ Colson, swing and a miss... Kohli pitches it short of a length outside off and gets it to skid through really quickly, Colson swivels to pull but is too early on the stroke, the ball comes in with the angle and just shaves the off stump. 91/4
Tanmay Srivastava1004624.60364120
48.3 to CJ Anderson, flighted on middle and off, Anderson slogs and misses and Srivastava hits the timber. However, he shows dissent by directing Anderson the pavilion and the umpire has a word with the bowler. 197/7
48.6 to A Verma, flighted outside off and turning in, he slogs across the line and misses. 199/8

Tim Southee902943.22362030
6.5 to T Kohli, false stroke.... Southee pitches it short of a length outside off and gets it to move away, Kohli tries to drag that from outside the offstump by pulling, he gets a thick top edge and Morgan takes it running to his right from mid-on. He covered a fair bit of ground before taking the catch.. 24/1
25.5 to SP Goswami, loss of concentration.... it wasn't the best of deliveries as it was pitched full and wide outside off, Goswami went for a booming cover drive but didn't get his feet moving, he ended up chopping it onto his stumps. 124/3
39.1 to MK Pandey, tame dismissal really.... pitches on a good length outside off and straightens, Pandey tries to glide it towards third man but the ball isn't in the slot to play that, the extra bounce does him in and he gets a thick edge through to the keeper. 177/5
39.4 to RA Jadeja, brilliant take and do we have a twist in the tale here? Pitches outside of and slants back in, Jadeja tries a delicate glide to third man, the edge goes low to Guptil-Bunce who goes to his right first and changes direction to his left and plucks it one handed on the dive. 180/6
Trent Boult812613.25394020
40.2 to Iqbal Abdulla, panic sets in for India.... pitches just outside the off stump, Abdulla tries to glide it down to third man but the ball straightens, he gets a thin deflection and Bunce takes another catch. 183/7
Greg Morgan301806.00124000
Anurag Verma712613.71242000
13.1 to TM Srivastava, Corey Anderson will have that framed for sure! Full outside the off stump, Tanmay shuffles across and flicks that uppishly just wide of mid-on, Anderson moves quickly to his left, the ball appears to drift further away from his outstretched arms but he wins the battle as he plucks that one handed just inches off the ground. 40/2

32.1 to V Kohli, captain catches captain.... pitches in the slot to drive outside off, Kohli drives that firmly on the up in the direction of the covers, Williamson at short cover flings himself to his right and plucks it inches off the ground. 150/4
