    8.4 caught at short backward square! That's a gift for England, a leg-stump inswinger from Curran, easy pickings for a well-set batsman ... or so Rohit thought, as he's got too much wood on the shot, and clipped it straight into Rashid's chest! Reward for Curran's new-ball discipline, and now England have a chance. Another tight powerplay is being rewarded with wickets on this occasion 37/2
    3.5 edged and the slips are in play! Sure enough, that carry is rewarded, as Topley hits the seam on a lovely full length, draws the hard-handed drive, and Stokes at second slip snaffles the chance, almost in front of first, high to his right. That is an excellent dismissal, due reward for a very disciplined start 9/1
    31.6 nicked behind. Good length, and Kohli stayed back to it, trying to cut this through point, Bit of grip and turn for Rashid as Kohli snicks it and Buttler holds on smartly this time. The wait for the three-figure mark continues for Kohli. 158/3
    44.5 back of a length, hauled to deep midwicket! Rahul's work is done, what a fine hand he's played. And he's cleared the stage for a bit of carnage now! 271/4
    46.5 sliced high and wild, out to the cover sweeper! Roy steadies himself in the deep and pockets the chance well... the umpires are checking whether he grounded it, but that looks clean enough to me. Another carefree fling of the willow from Pant, and why not! No standing on ceremony at this stage of the innings! 308/5
    49.5 Hardik is gone! A knuckle-ball from Topley, banged into the deck, outside off, and a top-edged slog lands in Roy's hands again. He's gone but he's played another good hand... even if Topley has done well at the death 334/6

    16.3 no doubt about this run out! An exceptional piece of fielding from Rohit, leaping to his right to intercept a clip at midwicket... the two men had a chance to shake hands in the middle as the flicked return came in... and Roy has to go! 110/1
    36.1 caught at cover. Half volley outside off and he launched into a cover drive. Nailed it perfectly - except for the fact that it was right to Kohli at cover. Both set batsmen gone for England now. 287/3
    35.2 he's caught behind for 99! Great ball by Bhuvneshwar, who banged it in short down legside. Stokes was always going to go for it, swivelled to pull it, gets a glove on it that flies to Pant. Stokes has his head thrown back in anguish, but really - this is why centuries are over-rated. Who would honestly rate this 99 ahead of any of the centuries in this game? 285/2

    36.4 stumps shattered with a yorker on off stump. Prasidh Krishna is pumped, and how! Tailed in beautifully, quick ball too, Buttler's too late on the defensive push and the ball sneaks under the bat and bangs into the stumps. Now then, now then... 287/4
