Commentary

  , Sharma to Root, no run, this is the last ball before tea and Root lets it go through
  , Sharma to Root, no run, length delivery on the off, goes straight on and Root leaves it alone
  , Sharma to Root, no run, fuller length outside off, 134 kph, the batsman comes forward and defends
  , Sharma to Broad, 1 run, on the stumps, Broad gets off strike with a clip to fine leg
  , Sharma to Broad, no run, this could have been another one! Broad gets a huge leading edge on this short one, but this lobs up excruciatingly close to the gully and the third slip fielder.. no one gets there..Broad was looking to play it to the leg side and had no idea where it had gone.. Guess what, Ishant had overstepped!
  , Sharma to Broad, no run, and beats the bat immediately! He finds the bouncy spot on the pitch and gets it to fly past the shoulder of the bat
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, straight up on the stumps, 134kph/84mph, the batsman stays in the crease and defends to leg side
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, keeps pegging it on a length outside off, the batsman comes forward and defends it solidly
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, goes wide of the crease but this is straying on to the pads, Root misses the flick
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, he stays on the back foot and defends this length ball to off
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, 2 runs, some respite after a season of wickets, the batsman whips it to deep midwicket to pick up a couple
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, Root is a rock at the other end, the batsman defends this solidly to off
  , Kumar to Broad, no run, targets the stumps, Broad tucks it to midwicket
  , Kumar to Stokes, OUT, there is no doubt about this one! This one is bowled from outside off, straightens a touch and Stokes - it can be said - plays a loose shot at that, pushing at it away from the body.. And that is it.. Dhoni gobbles it up
  , Kumar to Stokes, no run, he bowls length from round the wicket, defended to cover
  , Kumar to Prior, OUT, and another one joins the procession! Prior is not very happy with the decision and he has the right to be peeved! Dhoni appeals for a catch - a good one because he is standing up - but that noise was probably from the bat hitting the pad
  , Kumar to Prior, no run, back of length delivery on the stumps, the batsman defends it this time
  , Kumar to Prior, FOUR, but he just serves up a length delivery that Prior punches stylishly through cover, some statement of intent from the batsman
  , Mohammed Shami to Root, no run, much depends on Root now, who defends this length ball off the front foot
  , Mohammed Shami to Prior, 1 run, back of length on the pads, the batsman picks up a single to the deepish midwicket with a flick to get off the mark
  , Mohammed Shami to Prior, no run, fuller delivery on the pads, the batsman defends it to the leg side
  , Mohammed Shami to Prior, no run, goes full immediately, 135 kph/84 mph, the batsman comes forward and punches it straight to mid off
  , Mohammed Shami to Ali, OUT, this is gone! Weird dismissal but guess what, this edge has carried to first slip. I will explain how. So this is an intended bouncer, and Moeen was surprised, took his eyes off completely! But this one doesn't get up as much as he would have wanted, hits his glove and lobs up for the slip fielder. He walks away immediately, accepting he had made a poor decision to take his eyes off
  , Mohammed Shami to Ali, no run, length delivery on the stumps, the batsman comes forward and defends it to the leg side
  , Jadeja to Root, 2 runs, full and flighted on the pads, easily tickled to deep square leg
  , Jadeja to Root, no run, he stays back and defends the flatter delivery to the leg side
  , Jadeja to Root, no run, comes forward this time to defend it to off
  , Jadeja to Root, no run, this stays low and could have put him in trouble, but Root defends it off the back foot
  , Jadeja to Root, no run, he comes forward and gets beside the line, defends to off
  , Jadeja to Root, no run, he tosses it up and Root defends it easliy
