Ishan Porel26105111.961317000
68.6 to SP Jackson, and another one, this ball kept quite low..Jackson thought of reviewing but decided against it. It was a length ball and angling in, as Jackson was already onto the back foot and fails to get any bat onto it, plumb infront. 182/4
Mukesh Kumar44910322.3419910000
and he's gone..given lbw..This one kept low and hits the back pad. Pujara goes for the review..Fuller in length on off. Pujara tries to defend it but plays inside the line, as it goes past the bat and hits the back pad. Impact is umpire's call, as confirmed by Shamshuddin. So stays with on-field decision, but Saurashtra keeps the review.. 197/4

152.1 to PN Mankad, one brings two..Mukesh picks another wicket..courtesy lbw. Mankad reviews. This was on a length which was pitched outside off and swings back in. It hits him right infront of the middle stump. Shamshuddin confirms that it stays with the on-field decision. Saurashtra lost the review.. 364/8
Shahbaz Ahmed46.51410332.1922711002
37.5 to HM Desai, and the first wicket..a very good take by the fielder at silly point. Flatter length delivery pitched outside leg stump. Desai prods forward and tries to block it. It hits the top half of the bat and Raman, the substitute fielder held the catch. 82/1
143.6 to AV Vasavada, and finally a wicket ..length ball which was pitched well outside off as Vasavada steps out and tries to defend. Just straightens enough and beats the bat, Saha does the rest.. 348/6
171.5 to JD Unadkat, and here's the last wicket....came round the wicket. A flatter length ball on middle, slight turn there. Goes past the outside edge and hits the off stump... 425/10
Akash Deep3599842.8016312030
48.1 to AA Barot, Barot reviews as he was given out caught behind..On a good length and outside off, Barot took half a step forward to defend. But, ends up with an outside edge back to the keeper. It was definitely off the bat as the third umpire S Ravi confirms. Both the teams have lost a review each.. 113/2
65.3 to VM Jadeja, fuller in length and this one nips back in off the seam from outside off. Jadeja tries to drive that off the front foot but was beaten comprehensively by that inward movement. As the ball goes past the bat pad gap and hits the stumps... 163/3
80.5 to C Sakariya, another review by Bengal, this time for caught behind as Shamshuddin turns down the appeal ..Back of a length and shaping across from Sakariya, who pushes at it without any feet movement, gets an outside edge back to the keeper as the replay confirms.. 206/5
161.3 to CS Jani, and Jani is gone..This ball kept too low..this one didn't rise at all. Back of a length and angling in from outside off. Jani was beaten comprehensively by the lack of bounce..As it crashes the leg stump and breaks it. 387/9

152.4 to AP Majumdar, and Unadkat strikes, huge appeal for lbw and is given..Majumdar reviews..Length ball, angling in from outside off, it hits him infront of middle stump and so stays with the on-field decision. This is a big wicket.. 361/7
160.6 to IC Porel, and this is done..Saurashtra takes the first innings lead...Porel reviews it. Length delivery outside off, coming back in with the angle. That looks quite plumb. Impact is on line and he is gone.. 381/10
Chetan Sakariya28105511.961335010

Dharmendrasinh Jadeja521411432.1925514200
13.4 to SK Gharami, and the change of angle works.. A flatter length ball around the leg stump. A big stride forward from Gharami as he tries to defend it. It hits high on the bat and a good low catch by the fielder at short leg... 35/1
101.2 to SD Chatterjee, and he's gone.. ...a very soft dismissal. Flatter length ball around off stump, Chatterjee gets an inside edge onto the pad, which went to the fielder at short leg. Vishvaraj Jadeja took it without any trouble.. 225/4
157.6 to Mukesh Kumar, length delivery, big appeal for a catch.

14.5 to AR Easwaran, big appeal for lbw and given by Barde....Easwaran reviews but in vain.. Length ball, angling in from outside off, hits him on the flap of the front pad. Ravi is happy with the impact which was on leg stump, and the on-field decision stays.. 35/2

11.1 to HM Desai, given out, Desai reviews it. On a good length, pitched outside leg stump. Desai goes onto the back and tries to leave that away, looks like it hits the wrist band of the glove before ending up into the hands of the silly point fielder. And the on-field decision stays, Saurashtra lost the review.. 38/1
21.5 to AV Vasavada, and he's gone..flatter length delivery outside off, Vasavada gets forward and defends it. Gets an inside edge onto the pad and an easy catch to the fielder at short leg. 82/3
Akash Deep401313.25182000
18.1 to VM Jadeja, and a wicket straightaway...short and down leg side, superb catch by Saha diving to his left. Just touches the glove on its way as Jadeja was trying to help that away to fine leg. 65/2
Sudip Chatterjee11010.0060000
33.6 to AA Barot, and he's gone now..full toss, as Barot slogs it across the line and mistimes it over the bowler's head. The fielder at mid-on ran across and held the catch... 105/4
