After Dhawan's departure, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane (22) added another 57-run stand for the fourth wicket. It was then that Rahane became Bishoo's third victim.

Ravichandran Ashwin was the next man in and he was unbeaten at 22 along with Kohli at close of play, having added unbeaten 66 runs for the fifth-wicket.
