Shardul Thakur402716.7583000
10.4 to N Pooran, inside edge is taken behind! Short of a length and rising at middle stump. Clears the front leg and looks for the big pull. A thin edge as he gets cramped a touch. 68/3
Lungi Ngidi403939.75113310
5.2 to MA Agarwal, inside edge onto middle stump! Ngidi rolls the fingers on that and gets him. Short of a length and in the corridor. He's leaning back to try and play the pull shot, but is dragging from too wide outside off on a slow pitch. 48/1
8.3 to KL Rahul, dips under his sweep and bowls him! Beautiful bowling from Ngidi. A full slower ball at off stump and once again he's deceived him. He's looking to shovel that past short fine as it loops at him and tonks off stump. 62/2
17.1 to JDS Neesham, a diving catch to the right by Gaikwad! At deep midwicket. This pitch could be Ngidi's BFF, the way he's understood it today. Around the wicket, dug into the pitch short of a good length outside off. Neesham shapes for his favoured swipe over midwicket, but the slow pace on that makes him get a lot more elevation than he's like. Then, Gaikwad tracks it brilliantly with a sprint to his right and lunges with perfect timing to take that and then hold on. 113/6
Imran Tahir402416.0060100
11.5 to CH Gayle, that looks plumb on first viewing. Gayle reviews this lbw, hoping it's spinning past leg stump. He's down for a sweep and struck on the knee roll, right in front of middle stump. It's definitely pitched in line. Ultra Edge confirms no bat on it. And before ball tracking is even ready, Gayle has seen enough and is walking towards the dugout...because that is dead in front. Pitching in line, hitting middle stump. Three reds. Tahir is pointing happily to someone in the dugout. Snuck past the sweep and now the squeeze is well and truly on. 72/4
Ravindra Jadeja301715.6650000
16.2 to Mandeep Singh, slides onto off stump. Short of a length and coming on with the arm. He's deep in the crease trying to whip across the line but that keeps low and is under the angled bat. 108/5

9.5 to F du Plessis, Rahul grabs it running to his left. Slower ball at a good length outside off. Jumps into the off side for the ramp. Ends up miscuing it and it floats to Rahul's left. He's held on and appears to have made a faux appeal with both hands outstretched. Can't tell without a wider shot if that is aimed at the third umpire, but there's a good chance it is. 82/1
