TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.55)171/5
Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Virat Kohli, 3.6 ov), 2-30 (Devdutt Padikkal, 4.1 ov), 3-60 (Glenn Maxwell, 8.3 ov), 4-114 (Rajat Patidar, 14.5 ov), 5-139 (Washington Sundar, 17.6 ov)
4.1 to D Padikkal, cuts through him and hits the top of off! This is a proper Test match stock delivery from Ishant, length and slanted across middle but holding its line, met with a closed face as Devdutt looks to get this into the midwicket region. He's left a bit of a gap between bat and pad and has been beaten by pace. 30/2
17.6 to Washington Sundar, taken pitch-side. Short ball, cramping him at the chest. He wants to pull that away, he's not in shape, perhaps not even looking it at it by the end. The bat turns in his hands, one of them comes off, and it hangs nicely for Rabada. Sundar's batting form continues to desert him. 139/5
3.6 to V Kohli, chops it on and off stump is out of the ground! I can hear shouting again, this time from the bowler. Short of a length and jagging into the corridor, width getting tighter and tighter off the surface as Kohli shapes to play the late cut again. 30/1
8.3 to GJ Maxwell, dragged straight to long-on! Trademark Mishra wicket this. It is despairingly slow and loopy outside off, turning away. Maxwell's eyes light up and he looks to club this against the turn. It's come off the toe-end and that is now five times he's fallen to Mishra. 60/3
14.5 to RM Patidar, pulls straight to long-on! He can't believe that. It's short of a length and into him, there for a pretty vicious pull. But it is flat and to Smith's right, and he tracks it nicely to hold on to a sharp one. 114/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.50)170/4
Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Shikhar Dhawan, 2.3 ov), 2-28 (Steven Smith, 3.3 ov), 3-47 (Prithvi Shaw, 7.2 ov), 4-92 (Marcus Stoinis, 12.4 ov)
3.3 to SPD Smith, straightens that and draws the edge! Lovely delivery. Length and angled into the corridor, but straightening off the pitch. A cross seam delivery. Smith looks to drive on the rise and gets a big edge through to AB. 28/2
2.3 to S Dhawan, he's steered it straight to fine leg! That's a little tame, but it's a plan that's worked for Jamieson. Clear plan to cramp Dhawan this over. This time he follows him down leg side, gets it up at the hips. He wants to use the pace and get that over the fielder but he picks him out. 23/1
7.2 to PP Shaw, short and wide outside off, he chases it and there's a faint sound on that! And Shaw walks off. That was wide - literally, past the tramline. He wants to slash that behind point and has got a thin outside edge. 47/3
12.4 to MP Stoinis, screeches in delight after drawing the edge! Good length and wide outside off, Stoinis chucks his hands at that and gets it off the outside edge. A straightforward catch for AB and Harshal is not hiding his joy. 92/4
