View dismissal EJM Cowan c Laxman b Ashwin 30 110 63 3 0 47.61
25.5 caught at cover! Ashwin tossed this ball up outside off stump, drawing Cowan forward and into the cover drive. The ball dipped and Cowan didn't get to the pitch of it, hitting it hard, flat and low towards the right of the fielder at short cover. VVS Laxman was the man in that position and he did superbly to dive low to hold the chance with both hands. Not bad for a supposedly old man! 84/3
View dismissal DA Warner lbw b Khan 8 28 23 0 0 34.78
6.5 lbw! Warner's been trapped on the crease and Aleem Dar raised his finger after some thought. Zaheer pitched the ball on a good length outside off and nipped it into the left-hander. Warner didn't move forward as he tried to nudge on the leg side. The ball hit him on the knee roll of the front pad, that was pretty out. 26/1
View dismissal SE Marsh b Ashwin 3 10 12 0 0 25.00
9.6 bowled him! The pressure mounts on Marsh after another failure. Ashwin gave the ball some air and pitched it on a good length just outside off. Marsh moved forward to defend but left a large gap between bat and front pad as he did so. He played down the wrong line, for the ball went on with the arm, through the gap, and hit the stumps. 31/2
View dismissal RT Ponting c Tendulkar b Khan 221 516 404 21 0 54.70
136.1 the man lives and dies by the pull, taken by Tendulkar at deep midwicket, Zaheer pings it in short, Ponting does not hold back on the pull, gives it a good thwack, it flies high in the air but a leaping Tendulkar judged the take well in the deep, Clarke salutes his former captain off the ground with a standing ovation, as does the rest of the Adelaide Oval 530/6
View dismissal MJ Clarke* b Yadav 210 380 275 26 1 76.36
120.3 bowled 'em, India have a wicket at last, Clarke gone right after lunch, Umesh bends it in with the angle, it moves in after pitching on a length, past Clarke's push, brushes the pad and disturbs the bails, Clarke walks off to a standing ovation, he's put Australia on top, they were 84 for 3 when he came out to bat, seems a millennium ago 470/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Gambhir) 25 51 33 3 0 75.75
133.6 from Ashwin, brilliant work from Gautam at silly point means Hussey has to go back, Hussey had pushed the flatter one firmly past silly point on the bounce, but he stretched out his right hand as far as he could, caught the ball and lobbed it back on to the stumps before Hussey could turn back 520/5

View dismissal G Gambhir c Hussey b Siddle 34 140 94 4 0 36.17
33.5 Siddle all over India, Gautam falls to the bouncer, incredible delivery on this flat wicket, must have taken so much effort, Siddle bangs it in short, it gets way too big on Gautam, close to head high, he hops in the air as he has been doing all morning, wanting to bring it down, but ends up fending it away well in front of gully, Michael Hussey races forward and dives full length forward to hold on to it, what a delivery, what a catch, top stuff 87/4
View dismissal V Sehwag* c & b Siddle 18 21 18 3 0 100.00
5.1 he strikes with his first ball, accepts an outstanding return catch and sends Sehwag on his way, nothing delivery, low full toss, Sehwag closes the face as he looks to go midwicket, the ball loops to Siddle's right off the leading edge, he leaps and holds on one-handed, note to Ishant Sharma, at times, you create your luck 26/1
View dismissal R Dravid b Hilfenhaus 1 8 9 0 0 11.11
6.6 would you believe it, he's been bowled again, tad unfortunate, but full marks to Australia for sticking to a tight line and length, he was just a touch late in motioning forward, the ball bounced from a length, hit him near the elbow, and ricocheted on to the stumps 31/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Ponting b Siddle 25 94 69 3 0 36.23
31.2 Siddle strikes big, Tendulkar looking to push away from the body towards cover with a slightly open face and Ponting takes a very low catch at second slip, pitched up, the angle in to Tendulkar and the fuller length draws him forward, the open face takes the ball straight to Ponting, it was taken low enough for them to have a second look at it, looks alright 78/3
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Haddin b Lyon 18 61 43 1 0 41.86
46.1 Nathan Lyon has deserved this wicket, Laxman looks to dab one spinning in outside off and edges it through to Haddin, extremely ordinary shot 111/5
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Hilfenhaus 116 237 213 11 1 54.46
95.1 gone this time, looks to swing an in-swinging full toss on the leg side, the ball dips on him and strikes him in front of leg, Aleem Dar raises his finger even as Virat starts walking, replays show the ball would have swung down leg, Adelaide Oval gives him a standing ovation, he's come good on this tour, it's time to give the other youngsters their chance 272/10
View dismissal WP Saha b Harris 35 137 94 1 1 37.23
84.4 India won't go through a session without losing a wicket, Saha shoulders arms and Harris hits off, it was angled in on a length and it was very brave of Saha to make the decision to leave, turns out, it was the wrong one, he's battled briefly 225/6
View dismissal R Ashwin lbw b Siddle 5 12 9 0 0 55.55
87.1 that is straight, that has got to be out, and Aleem Dar gives it right away, Ashwin had been shuffling across looking to work deliveries off middle on the leg side, this time he missed, the fullish ball crashed into the pad in front of middle and leg, more leg than middle, gone! 230/7
View dismissal Z Khan c †Haddin b Siddle 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
87.2 India continue to implode, Zaheer Khan shows scant regard for the toil the non-striker has put in for hours, shuffles about and flails at a harmless delivery outside off stump, thick edge through to his mate Haddin, Siddle has five and shows the ball to the Adelaide Oval crowd in appreciation of their applause 230/8

10.6 oh dear, Marsh has been given leg before, is this his last Test innings for some time, Zaheer bowled it full towards off with the angle, Marsh was shuffling all over and almost fell over as he was struck on the pad, was that in line with off? Nope, he has got a rough one, the ball would have taken out off, but he was struck outside the line, nothing going Marsh's way at the moment 40/2
