9:28 PM IST- Johnson to Mandeep, 1 run, short of length cutter on middle and leg, Mandeep arches back, gets inside the line of it and tries to heave it away over fine leg.

9:27 PM IST- Johnson to Woakes, FOUR, full ball outside off, Woakes flings his hands at it and carves it through backward point. It goes to the fence like a bullet

9:25 PM IST- Johnson to Sarfaraz Khan, out Caught by Rinku Singh!! Sarfaraz looks to break free, but holes out at long-on. He was getting stuck out there, so wanted to release the pressure with a big shot. It was a full ball, probably a cutter,

9:13 PM IST- A Russell to Mandeep, 1 run, low full toss at the stumps, flicked down to fine leg

9:08 PM IST- Nitish Rana to Mandeep, FOUR, shuffles across, bends on one knee and gets the sweep away fine. Races away once it beats the man

9:06 PM IST- Nitish Rana to Kohli, out Bowled!! The part-timer gets AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli in consecutive balls. Floats a seam-up yorker which slips under Kohli’s bat and rattles the stumps. Rana is pumped as he punches the air in delight. He’ll be telling his grandchildren about this. Kohli b Nitish Rana 31(33) [4s-1 6s-1]

8:58 PM IST- A Russell to de Villiers, 1 run, another excellent yorker, nothing that AB can do other than squeezing it through mid-wicket

8:54 PM IST- Chawla to Kohli, SIX, those wrists have carried this all the way for six. Magnificent timing. He wasn’t to the pitch of it even after stepping out but still went through with the flick over mid-wicket.

8:52 PM IST- Johnson to de Villiers, SIX, to long-off

8:51 PM IST- Johnson to de Villiers, FOUR, to backward square leg

8:47 PM IST- Narine to Kohli, FOUR, he’s so good with those cover-drives. Full delivery outside off stump, Kohli waits and lofts the drive over the infield and the timing was great

8:46 PM IST- Narine to de Villiers, SIX, this is what he does so well. Those small movements in the crease before the bowler delivers and that puts many bowlers off.

8:45 PM IST- Kuldeep Yadav to de Villiers, SIX, straight down the ground

8:43 PM IST- Kuldeep Yadav to de Villiers, SIX, that’s not a bad ball at all from Kuldeep Yadav. Not easy to time the away-spinning ball

8:35 PM IST- Narine to Brendon McCullum, out Bowled!! It’s turned and gone through the gate. Came slowly than McCullum expected and he was through his pull shot early. Brendon McCullum b Narine 43(27) [4s-6 6s-2]

8:21 PM IST- Chawla to Brendon McCullum, no run

8:20 PM IST- Kuldeep Yadav to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, that’s completely mistimed, yet McCullum will get a boundary, this game is so cruel for the bowlers.
