Only five minutes of action panned out in the center as the rains took a breather for a brief period.

Déjà vu! When play resumed Kohli and Rahane put on a 34-run partnership lasting 13.1 overs until Chris Woakes came into the attack. He scalped Kohli and Pandya in consecutive overs getting them caught at slips. What was eerily similar between both dismissals is that Jos Buttler, managed to drop both batsmen right before holding onto their catch on the very next delivery. (Image: Reuters)
