09.51 IST: Jayed to Pujara, OUT! Pitched up and Pujara went for the booming drive but only to get a healthy edge, which went straight to substitute fielder Saif Hassan at gully. India lose their second wicket as Pujara departs for 54. IND 105/2 from 29.5 overs
09.47 IST: Jayed to Mayank, FOUR! Pitched up and half-volley and punched through covers for a boundary. He loves it there and will play the shot all day long.
