Mitchell Starc402416.00144000
19.4 to MM Sharma, rams into the off stump at 145kmh! Angled it in from outside off, Mohit made room and swing his arms but the ball rammed into the off stump. 177/8
Yuzvendra Chahal4040310.00112400
1.5 to BB McCullum, cuts it to point, Baz is gone in the second over! Chahal delivered this one slower outside off, it turned the other way and Baz went back in the crease to cut it off the middle. Rossouw takes a good, low catch towards his left there. 12/1
12.5 to SK Raina, can't clear the fielder this time, holes out to long off! He charged down, as usual, chipped the ball down the ground with power, but it didn't have enough to clear Rossouw at long off. 124/3
14.1 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni mistimes, Dhoni is gone! He came outside the crease, couldn't take it on the full and lofted it outside off, didn't middle it at all and found sweeper cover. 132/4
Harshal Patel402817.00125000
8.5 to DR Smith, edged and gone! This was touch back of length outside off, Smith poked trying to steer it to third man but found a thick outside edge and DK pouches it with both hands to his right. 70/2
David Wiese4046111.5083410
18.2 to R Ashwin, makes room for the slower ball on the stumps, it's absolutely full and Ashwin slice it straight to short third man. 168/7
Iqbal Abdulla403629.00103220
15.2 to RA Jadeja, in the arc, but not out of the park even though it looked like he middled it. Fulish around off, lofted between long on and deep midwicket, but it's gone high enough for long on to get under it. 135/5
17.3 to DJ Bravo, you can give them to AB and he'll catch them. Pitched up around off, it was slow again, and Bravo looked to loft it over the covers but mistimed it straight down the ground, high in the air. AB comes from long on and catches it safely. 156/6

Ishwar Pandey402115.25142100
8.2 to KD Karthik, that's a spectacular catch from Bravo, and what a celebration! Back of length slower ball towards off stump, DK lofted it down the ground, it didn't go that high but Bravo ran in from long on and threw himself forward to get his fingers under it. Then he gets up, raises his right hand and leg simultaneously, then the left ones for a little jig. All in slow motion. 61/3
Ashish Nehra401042.50150000
3.3 to MS Bisla, Faf du Plessis, you beaut!!! He keeps taking this shoulder-breaking catches in almost every game. This is a top-edge as Bisla looks to hit down the ground and it looks like well clear of mid-off, but Faf back pedals and somehow gets under it just in time.. Falls backwards hard on that right shoulder. Just saw on the replay.. this is a one-hander.. doubly impressive then. 31/1
3.6 to RR Rossouw, Ashish!!!! He has two in this over. This one slides under the bat and hits the stumps. To be fair to Rossouw, this was the work of the pitch. It stayed very low after bouncing on a length. But Nehra will take it. His wickets tally keeps going up. 33/2
16.1 to V Kohli, he is back and gets a wicket immediately, the big one! Landed a full delivery on the pads, Kohli launched it high on the leg side with a flick, Smith was there right at the midwicket boundary at the edge and caught it over his head on the right side. Very well judged. 123/6
16.2 to HV Patel, another one falls, another nail hammered by Nehra! Harshal pulls his first ball, it was a short one, but manages only a top edge down the ground. It's gone high enough for Bravo to run behind the umpire form mid off, he catches it and does a little Calypso jig. 123/7
Mohit Sharma403909.7583200
Ravichandran Ashwin1017017.0012110
Ravindra Jadeja403719.2571300
13.3 to SN Khan, right from the middle of the bat, but he finds deep midwicket. Went down on a knee for the ball outside off, swept it against the turn and holed out to Mohit, who was a good few yards inside the rope. 97/5
Dwayne Bravo302518.3364000
19.6 to D Wiese, a wicket on the last ball as Wiese threw his bat at this one outside off, get a leading edge and Smith ran in from deep cover to take the catch. 154/8
