9.6 overs (1 Run) Shortish and around off, punched from the crease to deep cover for a single. 16 from the over, a much-needed one for India. At the halfway mark, this match is interestingly poised. 75 needed off 60 balls but on this pitch, it's a matter of one wicket. Not easy to play shots here.
9.5 overs (1 Run) PUT DOWN! Rohit Sharma survives - life is granted to him by his Mumbai teammate, Trent Boult. Santner delivers it full and around off, Rohit Sharma tries to slog across the line but it takes the top edge and flies behind the bowler. Boult comes running in from long on but fails to catch the ball with a slide. Usually, Trent Boult is known to take fantastic catches and he will be disappointed with this effort. A run is taken.
9.4 overs (6 Runs) SIX! The Hitman is flexing his muscles! Arm ball from Santner, around off and skidding in, Rohit Sharma clears his front leg and smokes it over mid-wicket for a handsome biggie. The crowd is enjoying it. This is brilliant batting.
9.3 overs (1 Run) Short and around off, it's fired in by Santner, Rahul cuts it through point for one.

8.6 overs (2 Runs) A long hop from Sodhi, around middle, Rahul pulls it towards wide long on and collects a couple of runs.
8.5 overs (1 Run) Not easy to middle the shots. Full and flighted around middle, Rohit dances down the track for a big heave-ho but gets too close to the pitch of the ball. He ends up dragging it off the inner edge to mid-wicket. They cross.
The umpires are having a good look at the ball as the seam of the ball seems to have swollen up. Out comes the fourth umpire with a set of new balls.

Southee sees the funny side of that incident.
Ish Sodhi comes to bowl now.
