18.2 overs (1 Run)
Dropped! Tough chance though! A slower one around off, Dube looks to slam it to the right of the bowler but slowness of the ball means he mistimes it to that side.
18.1 overs (1 Run)
Good length ball just outside off, Iyer moves towards the off side and flicks it to mid-wicket for a single.
Scott Kuggeleijn to bowl out. Interestingly this is the first time in the series that he is going to finish off his quota.
17.6 overs (1 Run)
Yes, he can. Just a single off the last ball and 3 from the over. Full and outside off, Iyer pushes it to mid off for a run.
17.5 overs (0 Run)
Another dot! Excellent stuff from Bennett. He bowls it very full ball outside off, Iyer looks to squeeze it out but misses. Can Bennett finish it well?
17.4 overs (1 Run)
Full and on the pads, Dube looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards the leg side for a leg bye.
17.3 overs (1 Run)
Full and outside off again, Iyer drills it well but this time finds Santner at cover. Santner though misfields and allows a run.
17.2 overs (0 Run)
Another dot ball. Iyer is clearly struggling here. He looks to make room by moving towards the leg side. Bennett bowls it full and outside off, Iyer looks to reach out but misses.
17.1 overs (0 Run)
Beaten! A good length ball outside off, Iyer look to force it towards off side but gets beaten.
16.6 overs (1 Run)
Quicker one around off, Iyer goes on the back foot and looks to cut. However, it is too close for that shot and Iyer ends up getting a bottom edge for a single.
16.5 overs (1 Run)
Dube is off the mark. A flatter one outside off, Dube pushes it past the diving bowler for a run.
Shivam Dube walks in place of Rohit Sharma.
Rohit is struggling and now he is in severe pain so he is off and that’s a sensible decision as the series is wrapped up and there is no point risking a serious injury.
16.4 overs (0 Run)
Now, he goes for the reverse sweep. That’s not conventional Rohit. All he is trying to do now is get out or score quickly. He though finds the fielder at point. And once again he shows the pain.
16.3 overs (0 Run)
Flatter and around off, pushed towards point.
16.2 overs (6 Runs)
SIX! There is issues with his calf but surely no issues with the power in the arms. Sodhi bowls a full ball in the arch of Rohit. He sits down and slog sweeps it over deep mid-wicket for a huge six. Someone in the crowd does reall well to pouch the ball well. Rohit though clearly looking struggling.
Rohit Sharma is in some pain there and the Indian physio comes out to the middle to check the issue. Looks like some problem with his calf. He is got taped and is not getting ready to resume his innings. There’s still some grimace on his face. Gulps a sip of water and he is now ready.
16.1 overs (1 Run)
Short and just outside off, Iyer looks to cut but the ball takes the bottom edge and goes towards short third man. A single is taken. Rohit is not looking comfortable here.
Bowling change! Ish Sodhi is back on!
15.6 overs (0 Run)
Full and on off, pushed towards covers. 14 runs from Southee’s 3rd over. Another poor one from the skipper.
15.5 overs (2 Runs)
A couple now! Fuller ball outside off, Rohit looks to cream it over cover but does not time it well. However, it is good enough to clear the off side infield for a couple of runs.
15.4 overs (1 Run)
Short and outside off, pushed towards covers for a run.
15.3 overs (6 Runs)
SIX! Timed brilliantly! Southee bowls a slower one but the length is not right. Iyer pulls it over deep square leg where Sodhi tries to catch but the ball goes over him for another biggie.
15.2 overs (1 Run)
Short and outside off, Rohit cuts it to sweeper cover for a run.
15.1 overs (4 Runs)
FOUR! Half century from the skipper! A back of a length ball outside off from Southee. Rohit pulls it with power and clears the man at mid off. Once the infield is cleared, no one will stop the boundary. Another top innings from Rohit.
