Kevin Pietersen's dismissal to Ojha in the first innings was the 24th time he had fallen to a left-arm spinner.
He has denied having any specific issue against that kind of bowling, and usually plays them as if he wants to prove that point. This only makes him more likely to get out to them. On Sunday, he aimed a sweep at Ojha, to a delivery that was too full, and too straight, for that stroke. To compound matters, he swept down the wrong line. K Pietersen b Ojha 2 (6b).
Out walked another batsman looking to live down his first innings dismissal. Ian Bell played cautiously, without too much alarm, and struck three sweetly timed fours, before Dhoni brought on Umesh Yadav, having seen Zaheer achieve a hint of reverse swing. He struck immediately, getting one to bend into Bell and strike his pad low, in front of middle. It looked like it would just about clip leg stump.
