Pacy short ball from Krishna on the stumps, Mohit moves across to pull that one. He misses and the ball goes to the keeper at a good speed.
19.4 - P Krishna to M Sharma
FOUR! Super shot from Mohit! Fuller length ball outside off, he slashes hard and carts it through the covers for a boundary.
19.3 - P Krishna to R Ashwin
OUT! Plumb in front! Easy decision for the umpire though he took his time before raising his finger eventually. It is a pitched up delivery on middle and leg stump line, Ashwin camps back and looks to heave that one across the line. He misses it completely. The ball hits him flush on the knee roll, the unprotected area. Krishna appeals and gets his second wicket. Ashwin looks in some pain and the Kolkata skipper is trying to help him out. End of a gutsy knock from the home captain.

Short ball on the stumps, Sran goes for the pull, top edges it to the vacant mid off region. Single taken.
19.1 - P Krishna to A Tye
OUT! Acrobatic effort from Karthik, he pulls off a stunner and sends Tye packing into the hut! Short of a length ball down the leg side, Tye swivels across and attempts the pull shot. He gloves it to the keeper, who flew to his left and takes a blinder. He doesn't even bother to appeal, just raises his hand and looks at the umpire and gets the signal in his favor.
19.1 - P Krishna to A Tye
Wide! Bowls a wide yorker, but that is too wide and Tye can't reach it. The umpire signals wide.
