163.4OUTRavindra Jadeja to Buttler, out Bowled!! Oh no! I am sorry Jos Buttler. Shouldn't have jinxed it. And Alastair Cook has declared. Flatter delivery on the off stump, Buttler looks for a cut but drags it back onto the off stump. End of an entertaining innings and more importantly, it came quickly at a time when England needed it. Buttler b Ravindra Jadeja 85(83) [4s-9 6s-3]569/7
162.5FOURPankaj Singh to Buttler, FOUR, again, a freebie for Buttler. Full on the stumps, not quite a yorker, Buttler gets under it and smashes it flat past the bowler and it thuds into the sightscreen564/6
162.4OTHERPankaj Singh to Buttler, 2 runs, low full toss down the leg side, Buttler flicks it to deep square leg, Rahane throws it back to Pankaj, who wasn't near the stumps, he tries to under-arm it onto the stumps but misses560/6
162.3SIXPankaj Singh to Buttler, SIX, Pankaj Singh opts for the bouncer but Buttler has muscled this pull and clears the deep mid-wicket fence again558/6
162.2SIXPankaj Singh to Buttler, SIX, don't bowl length to this man Pankaj Singh. Front leg out of the way and baaang, the ball went way over the deep mid-wicket fence552/6

106.1OUTJ Anderson to Shami, out Caught by Buttler!! That is innings over! And five for Anderson. The birthday boy finishes it off. Unplayable short delivery - that would've troubled any top order bat, Shami is just a tailender, he cannot get out of the way as the ball angles in, gloved to Buttler. Similar delivery to the one that got Che out, and much like Che, Shami couldn't drop the gloves. The ball just followed him wickedly and he wasn't good enough. Shami c Buttler b J Anderson 5(15) [4s-1]330/10
104.2OUTJ Anderson to Dhoni, out Caught by Buttler!! Dhoni walks! As soon as he gloved it behind, he tucked the bat under his arm-pit and off he goes. Good short delivery, targetting the ribs, Dhoni went for the pull, but the ball got big on him and he could only glove it behind. Loopy catch for Buttler and a fourth wicket for Anderson. Dhoni c Buttler b J Anderson 50(113) [4s-5 6s-1]329/9
103.5FOURBroad to Shami, byes, FOUR, swing for Broad, but the wrong line, down leg and it keeps swinging away further, giving Buttler no chance. Four byes added to the total329/8
101.2FOURJordan to Shami, FOUR, Shami opens the face of the bat while meeting this back of a length ball outside off and dabs it past the gully. These are handy runs for the touring party323/8
101FOURBroad to Dhoni, FOUR, 31st Test fifty for Dhoni. He continues to fight for India. On a good length and outside off, Dhoni takes the aerial route and lifts it over covers with a bent knee to reach the landmark. So much so for bringing the field in319/8
99.5OTHERJordan to Dhoni, 1 run, a direct hit could have sent Shami packing. Ali though misses it. Pushed wide of covers for a drop and run single315/8
