8.1 to Q de Kock, aesthetically beauty is where de Kock's inside-out loft over extra cover stops. He's not fully to the pitch and as a result, he's ended up slicing a very good looking shot to sweeper's left. The fielder runs a few yards to his left and watches carefully before completing the catch. 67/1
Andre Russell3031310.3341220
9.5 to BB McCullum, got him! Through the hook shot too early, is McCullum, and he ends up getting a feather off the toe of the bat which carries comfortably to the keeper. A short ball and he made plenty of room for the swing, but the timing is just off. 74/2
9.6 to M Vohra, gone! A full toss! Vohra skips down the pitch and gets a shin height full toss tailing in at him that is ripe for a drilling through midwicket. It's what he was looking to do as well. Except, there's a gap between bat and pad and the inside edge sneaks through to smash the stumps...oh it takes his back boot on the way too. 75/3
17.3 to Mandeep Singh, Mavi keeps his cool at deep midwicket, and takes this with a reverse cup right at the edge. Mandeep hits the pull nicely, to be fair. But the elevation is missing and it's a smart catch. 140/4

16.3 to AD Russell, gone first ball on his 30th birthday! The crowd has come alive, I tell you. Siraj banged it in and Russell went hard at it with a swing of the arms, got only a top edge and de Kock ran a long way back to complete a superb catch. 139/3
18.5 to KD Karthik, what a catch by Kohli! DK lofted it straight down yet again, Kohli's eyes spot it and he sprints across full speed in front and to his left from long on. Puts in a full-length dive just in time and gets both his hands under the ball. 171/4
Murugan Ashwin403629.0084110
7.1 to SP Narine, strikes first ball, Narine holes out to long off! Tall man de Grandhomme takes a couple steps back at long off and raises his arms over his head to grab the ball and just keeps his feet inside the boundary. It was pitched up, Narine went straight down the ground but didn't get enough for this small ground. 59/1
12.2 to RV Uthappa, the flight has worked, he holes out to long on! It was pitched up with a lot of revs, Uthappa got near the ball nicely, struck it hard and straight but Southee was waiting there at long on with his long arms. Ashwin is pumped!. 108/2
