Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Venkatesh Iyer, 1.6 ov), 2-65 (Nitish Rana, 7.3 ov), 3-72 (Ajinkya Rahane, 7.6 ov), 4-83 (Shreyas Iyer, 9.6 ov), 5-94 (Rinku Singh, 11.3 ov), 6-157 (Sam Billings, 18.5 ov)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar402716.75133050
18.5 to SW Billings, Chipped to Williamson at extra-cover. 118.3ks slower one wide of off. Seems like the legcutter from Bhuvneshwar, hides it away from the swinging arc. Loopy catch for Williamson. 157/6
Marco Jansen403017.50110300
1.6 to VR Iyer, Venkatesh chops on and knocks out his own off stump. Shorter outside off, from wide of the crease, Venkatesh throws his bat at ball and drags it back onto his own stumps. Gone for 7 off 6 balls. Welcome back, Marco. 17/1
T Natarajan4043110.7571410
11.3 to RK Singh, Natarajan spins around and belts out an appeal for lbw. Given out rather belatedly on the field. Rinku and Billings get together and Rinku belatedly asks for a review of Ananthapadmanabhan's on-field out decision. Rinku has been timed out on the review. He hangs around for a bit before dragging himself off the field. Umpire Anil Chaudhary sends him on his way even as he remonstrates with him. Looks like Billings had initially signalled for a review, but that doesn't count. Baz McCullum has a word with the fourth umpire at the boundary. This was a Natarajan special: inswinging yorker from over the wicket, dips and crashes into the toe. Looks pretty adjacent. Steyn is pumped in the dug-out. Strange play. 94/5
Washington Sundar4040010.0081400
Umran Malik403338.25105020
7.3 to N Rana, Malik gets rid of Rana. This was on the cards, wasn't it? Flapped away to deep square leg. On a back of a length and just outside off, this isn't quite a full-blooded pull from Rana. Shashank runs in rather belatedly from the boundary but dives forward to pouch the catch. Rana helps it to Shashank. 65/2
7.6 to AM Rahane, Malik takes out Rana and Rahane in the same over. Shashank runs across to his right from sweeper cover and pouches it once again. He got into a side-on position, but managed to hold onto the ball at the boundary after a tumble. Banged in short and outside off, Rahane upper-cuts in the air, but can't clear the boundary. 72/3
9.6 to SS Iyer, 147.8ks, full and angling into the pads from wide of the crease. Shreyas goes deep in the crease, searching for the short ball. This is nowhere near that length. He still flicks it in the air. Holes out to Tripathi at deep midwicket. Dives forward to complete the catch. 83/4

Umesh Yadav401914.75131100
14.4 to AK Markram, chops on! It's an attempted yorker outside off, just short of the yorker length, and Markram opens up to swing wildly to only get an inside edge onto his off stump. 99/5
Tim Southee402325.7592000
8.2 to RA Tripathi, Southee takes a stunner! That was rocketed back, much quicker than the return catch Umesh got a few overs back and Southee has hung on to it. Length ball, Tripathi absolutely slams it back and Southee, somehow, brings both his hands up to his left shoulder and grabs with both hands. 54/2
18.1 to Shashank Singh, the two Iyers are coming under the ball, Shreyas takes it easily! Scrambled seam outside off, Shashank swings big, doesn't middle it at all, and it's skied towards mid-off where Shreyas gets under the ball nicely. 113/8
Sunil Narine403418.5061200
12.3 to N Pooran, straight back to Narine this time for a return catch! Narine is turning it around for himself as the asking rate rises. Short and angling in, Pooran pounces on the short ball and slaps it back, Narine misjudges the trajectory and jumps a bit as the ball crashes towards his groin but he does well to get both hands to it. 76/4
Andre Russell402235.50143020
5.2 to KS Williamson, another scratchy Williamson innings ends! Russell sticks to the basics by targeting top of off, Williamson tries something fancy by going across and scooping it fine, but he misses it competely and loses his stumps. Gone for 9 off 17, Lara is shaking his head with his face buried in his hands in the dugout. 30/1
17.1 to Washington Sundar, he strikes again, it's Russell's night. Bangs in the slower ball, Washington is through with his pull well before the ball reaches him, one hand comes off the bat when he makes the connection and the ball goes high to the long leg boundary where Venkatesh waits patiently to catch it just before the rope. 107/6
17.5 to M Jansen, one more for Russell, a faint outside edge off Jansen's bat! Slower ball cutting away from length, Jansen swings into the leg side and makes a connection he didn't want to, low catch to the right for Billings. 113/7
Varun Chakravarthy402516.25131210
11.5 to Abhishek Sharma, Varun gets the big wicket! Reduces the speed, Abhishek goes for the slog sweep and miscues it completely, it goes high towards square leg where Billings gets under the ball after calling for it. 72/3
