17.1 to V Kohli, Straight down Root's throat! Length ball on middle, and Kohli goes for the swivel-pull. Not off the bat's sweet spot, and the shot goes straight to fine leg. Root has to dive forward, but he judges the catch well. Kohli has to go. 111/5
1.6 to RG Sharma, in the air! And taken by Buttler. Short once again on off, and Rohit can't resist pulling. The bat turns in his hand, and the sliced shot is comfortably gobbled by the wicketkeeper. Maiden wicket. 7/1
4.5 to KL Rahul, bowled him! And India in a whole lotta trouble. it was full on off, and Rahul went for a big straight drive over Plunkett's head. But the ball shaped slightly away from Rahul, then went past his bat, and finally clipped the bails on top of middle stump to send the dangerous batsman packing. 22/3
12.2 to SK Raina, the wrong'un! Full on middle, and Raina comes dancing down the wicket to go for a big leg-side slog. The ball turns the other away, and Raina's stranded halfway down the wicket. Buttler makes no mistake. The first time Raina's been stumped in T20Is. 79/4

2.1 to JJ Roy, through his defences! Length ball outside off, but seaming inwards after pitching. Roy punches down the wrong line, and the ball goes through the bat-body gap. Big wicket!. 16/1
4.6 to JC Buttler, sweet revenge! Kohli's ecstatic. Length ball outside off and once again Buttler's made too much room. Mistimes a flat-batted shot to mid off once again, and this time Kohli makes no mistake.. 33/2
17.1 to JM Bairstow, straight to fine leg! Twist in the tale! Length ball on middle, and cramping Bairstow for room as he tries to pull. In the air for a long time, and Kuldeep makes no mistake in the deep diving forward. The dangerous YJB has to walk back. 126/5
13.1 to EJG Morgan, stunning catch from Gabbar! India are pumped. Short on leg, and Morgan's reflexes kicked in. Pulled behind square, but it doesn't have the power to clear the boundary. Dhawan - manning the ropes - jumps in the air, sticks his hansd out, and takes an excellent catch before falling over. Fans jump the fence to celebrate the wicket with Team India, but security take them away soon after. 92/4
6.5 to JE Root, done in by the googly! Swipes across the line, and completely misses the shot. Full outside off, and Root can't connect with the sweep. The ball spins in sharply, and dislodges his off stump. 44/3
