Over 1.3 Avesh Khan good length delivery to AJ Finch, out Caught by Shreyas Iyer!! Finch  tried to use his hands to lift this away down the ground. Wasn't there for that shot and he was late as well. Popped an easy catch towards extra cover.

Over 4.3 LE Plunkett bowls it short of length to Lokesh Rahul, out Caught by Avesh Khan!! Rahul went across on the back foot for the short arm jab but got no pace to work with at all. Mistimed it badly and Avesh at short fine leg judged it brilliantly with a dive forward.

Over 7.3 LE Plunkett good length delivery to Mayank Agarwal, out Bowled!! Mayank was expecting the slower ball. No excuse for the shot though, a wild slog across the line and misses it completely. The ball crashing into the stumps

Over 12.4 Avesh Khan good length delivery to Yuvraj Singh, out Caught by Pant!! Yuvraj loads up again to flat-bat across the line. Inside-tickle and Pant takes a simple catch behind the stumps.

Over 16.1 LE Plunkett good length delivery to Karun Nair, out Caught by Shreyas Iyer!! Nair decides to do it with a lofted whip. The ball just doesn't come on, sticks, grabs the inside half of his bat and for a change somebody can catch. But Iyer almost keeps up with the trend - running across from long-on and juggling.

Over 17.3 DT Christian good length delivery to David Miller, out Caught by Plunkett!!  A full floater from Christian, inviting an away from the body drive. Sliced uppishly,  flat and Plunkett at deep sweeper dives forward and takes it.

Over 19.1 Trent Boult good length delivery to Ravichandran Ashwin, out Caught by Rahul Tewatia!!  Ashwin stretches,and tries squeezing his steer, but ends up spooning it out to backward point.

Over 19.6 Trent Boult good length delivery to Andrew Tye, out Bowled!! Gets some bat for a change, it's the inside-edge and it's chopped onto off stump.
