Commentary

  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, back over the wicket to sign the day off with a fuller ball sneaking away after pitching, Bell shoulders arms and away come the bails to signal stumps
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, it's the double bluff, fires one full and wide of off stump. Bell practices his leave
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, full on off stump, Bell produces a straight bat
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, good length on off stump, Bell keeps it out
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, appreciable away swing for Pankaj as he pushes his length fuller and closer to off stump. Bell covers his stumps and shoulders arms. Good leave
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, short and wide, considering it's near to being the last over of the day, Bell won't slash at it
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, uncertainty from Ballance! Not sure whether to play or leave and the ball sneaks off the face of the bat to the keeper. Full and teasing outside off, he has been resolutely leaving them until now
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, opts for a bouncer but it is way down leg, especially with Ballance shuffling back and across
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, fuller but still enough daylight between the ball and off stump for Ballance to hoist his bat high over his head
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, full and angled across him, this new ball might as well not have been taken, when the batsman can leave so easily
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, fullish on off stump, Ballance gets in line with it
  , Kumar to Ballance, no run, full and curling back in on off stump, Ballance plays late with a dead bat
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, gets forward to block a fuller ball that was angled in on off stump
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, fullish and too far outside off to interest the batsman
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, just back of a good length and he gets some good carry through, but Bell takes points on a well-judged leave a shade outside off
  , Pankaj Singh to Bell, no run, shortish and outside off, Bell won't be lured
  , Pankaj Singh to Ballance, 1 run, effortlessly whipped to deep square leg as this is back of a length and on his hips
  , Pankaj Singh to Ballance, no run, dug into the middle of the deck, Ballance scurries away towards the off side to free it's passage through to the keeper
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, angles a fuller ball in and gets it to sneak away after pitching, Bell is wary of the trick and banks on it to leave a shade outside off
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, fullish and around the off stump, driven to mid-off
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, the tease has worked but Bell escapes with his lapse in patience. Looked for a dab through the vacant third man region and is beaten
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, back of a length and outside off again, Bell shuffles across and doesn't need to do much else
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, fuller and though it swings away, it began well enough outside off to be left to the keeper
  , Kumar to Bell, no run, seems not to have shed off the cobwebs of the old one as it is short and wide. Bell bunts it to point
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, this time he takes the outside edge as Ballance pokes from the crease and away from his body, falls well short of the cordon
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, cuts him in half by getting a length ball to duck in at him. Ballance was ready to leave that on the angle but suddenly he realises he has to play. 86mph ripper from Shami late in the day
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, amid sprays down the pads, he runs in and bangs this back of a length and gets the ball to jag past the outside edge of a batsman on 100+. Lovely bounce there
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, ducks under a short delivery on middle and off
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, back of a length and around off stump, blocked resolutely
  , Mohammed Shami to Ballance, no run, short and wide, but Ballance's cut seems to have gone off the bottom of the bat and finds point
