Just behind a length, angling in from outside off, the left-hander goes for another pull but gets an inside edge onto his body.

0
Slower length delivery outside the line of off stump, Jadeja is early into the pull and misses the pull shot altogether.

Some confusion but all's well in the end. A fuller length ball on the leg stump, pushed back towards the bowler. Siraj fails to stop the ball completely and Jadeja looks for a single but Jadhav was ball watching there. Jaddu runs back in time.

Jadeja runs down the track and looks to hit it over cover. The ball goes off the outside edge and in the air, but no fielder there means the ball will run safely down to third man. A run is taken.

15.2Yadav to Jadeja

0
Pushed towards mid-wicket by Jadeja and the batsmen decide very late that they do not want a single. Could have been a run out had they run through. Kohli the fielder was quick to get to the ball.

Slower ball bouncer outside off, Jadeja looks flummoxed by that as he leaves it alone.

14.2Siraj to Rayudu

W
OUT! What has happened there? The stumps are in disarray! Rayudu was coming down the track and Siraj spots it early. He bowls it short and aims it at the body of the batsman. Rayudu is cramped for room and looks to pull it away still but the ball goes off the inside edge and onto the stumps. Too late in the game for Bangalore though.

11.5Saini to Rayudu

FOUR! Lovely shot that. Short of a good length delivery on off, Rayudu plays a cover drive with precision. It goes through the gap between covers and extra cover. The ball touches the ropes. Ambati plays it with great technique, a great foot work and perfect placement.
