1.1 to BB McCullum, super ball, super catch. This is Test match cricket barging into T20s, not taking no for an answer. A good length ball seams away off the pitch and catches the batsman in no-man's land. McCullum pokes his bat at it, without moving his feet, following the direction of the seam movement. And for that trouble, he gets a thick outside edge, which Pant tracks down with a big dive to his right.. 10/1
18.3 to AJ Finch, a screamer from Pant. But we'll need the third umpire's confirmation. So let's talk about the problems the wicketkeeper faced. He has to run almost three-fourth the distance to the fine leg boundary. He has to deal with a swirling delivery, always moving away from him, and towards Shahbaz Nadeem, who is only feet away from him. He shouts he wants the catch, he dives forward as the ball comes down, and it sticks in both hands. Makes sure to keep it away from the turf as well and the third umpire agrees. Oh, did I mention all of this happened because Finch is hurried on a hook and top edged it?. 189/6
Pat Cummins403027.5094000
14.1 to KD Karthik, this is a stunning catch. It's just bleeping unbelievable. Simply in the way he has tracked the ball perfectly and times the jump even better. Takes the catch with his strong hand - the left hand. He comes into play because Cummins bowls a slower, full delivery on off stump and Karthik mistimes his loft. He is looking to clear mid-off, but Anderson moves back and to his right, eyes on the ball all the way, and then he propels off his feet and back behind him, stretching a hand out and coming up with a superbly judged grab. 158/4
17.1 to Ishan Kishan, has gone straight up, long-on is in focus and Iyer takes it cleanly. His first catch in three tries. So the offcutter does Kishan, who sees the ball hitting the deck and moving across him and immediately goes for the slog. The lack of pace though makes sure the ball goes higher instead of longer and Iyer running in completes a good high grab. 178/5

19.1 to JP Faulkner, heaves a length ball, from outside off, all the way into the hands of Brathwaite, the substitute fielder, at deep square leg. Slower ball doesn't allow the timing Faulkner was looking for. 192/7

Pradeep Sangwan4043110.75113410
2.5 to KK Nair, gone this time. A short delivery on leg, Karun looks to bail out of the stroke but bails out late. He then thinks he has enough time to ramp the ball over short third man. All he does it get an edge through to Karthik. Not a bad stroke with 209 to chase, but execution not too great. 24/1
Basil Thampi4040110.0090430
14.3 to RR Pant, oh no. Pant edges behind. Gone on 97. A big nick. He is distraught, Raina gives him a couple of pats of appreciation. Full outside off, Pant wants to go straight but his big slog results in a thick outside edge. A collective moan as the umpire's finger went up. There was power, there was class, there was touch. Sensational. Maybe fatigue?. 179/3

13.2 to SV Samson, and taken. Flat outside off, Samson can't hold himself back. It wasn't the worst shot considering the net run-rate factor. Samson looks to go over cover but the ball spins a touch, it skews off the outside half and lands in Faulkner's hands, running in from long-off. Phew, what an effort. 167/2
