SCJ Broad scored 38 runs off 59 balls and out when it was (117.3 KL Rahul is not dropping anything here. This is a sensational catch. A catch that is not quite appreciated enough when watching on TV. Broad tries to drive a length ball over mid-on, gets too much under it, and hangs it up in the air, but it looks like it will clear Rahul. Rahul, though, sprints back, keeping an eye on the ball, sees it fall over his shoulder, and then dives full length to catch it. Rahul has had a great catching series 312/9).
JC Buttler faced 133 deliveries in his beautiful innings and scored 89 runs. He completed his innings with the help of six 4s and two 6s. When his wicket fallen then it happened like this (121.6 and Jadeja ends the innings. India refuse to give him the easy single to manipulate the strike, and it works for them. Buttler looks for the big shot to a length ball, it is not on, the ball turns, and takes a thick edge to slip where Rahne takes a good catch. Buttler ends on 89 and walks off to a big applause 332/10). RA Jadeja took four wickets, JJ Bumrah and I Sharma took three wickets each of them.
