  Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner run out (Sharma/Vinay Kumar) 18 46 24 2 0 75.00
9.3 from Vinay Kumar, Communication Breakdown! Warner punches it down to cover point, fails to bisect the packed off side field, Rohit is sharp, he gathers and throws to the bowler's end, Clarke was away for the run and was already near the striker's end, both were running to the same end but Warner was in no-man's land as he decided to sacrifice his wicket 53/2
View dismissal RT Ponting c Kohli b Vinay Kumar 6 14 14 1 0 42.85
3.1 the opening experiment fails for Ponting, Vinay does well to pitch it up on the off stump, moves it away slightly, Ponting drives inside out and spoons it Kohli at point, Ponting looked at bit awkward at the crease when he played that and the follow through too 14/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke* b Yadav 38 63 43 5 0 88.37
17.5 not sure what Clarke was trying to do but full credit to the bowler for this, he saw Clarke making room and taking a few paces down and cleverly slipped in a slower ball at 121 kph, Clarke had to change his shot and tap it away with soft hands, had to really stretch out and he ended up chopping it onto his stumps 81/3
View dismissal PJ Forrest c Vinay Kumar b Yadav 66 92 83 5 2 79.51
35.3 miscued! Forrest tries to push it in the Powerplay, pulls a short delivery and fails to control it, Vinay runs forward from deep square leg and takes it, that ends a very impressive debut innings by Forrest 179/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Sehwag b Khan 72 100 76 5 0 94.73
44.2 82.2 mph, good reflexes from Sehwag! Zaheer fires it full on the pads and Hussey tries to work that away past square leg with his wrists, he chips it and Sehwag at square leg has to time his dive well to his right, which he does, and takes it an inch from the ground 235/5
View dismissal DT Christian run out (Jadeja/†Dhoni) 39 57 36 2 0 108.33
47.4 from Vinay Kumar, good work by Jadeja, Christian works it down to long-on and tries to put pressure on Jadeja by pushing for the second run, the throw is accurate to Dhoni and the batsman is well short, the third umpire takes a look 254/6
View dismissal MS Wade b Vinay Kumar 16 25 18 1 0 88.88
49.2 73.2 mph, Wade's scratchy knock ends, he backs away to cart that over the on side and misses a slower ball, hits the leg stump, Wade is very frustrated for not making the most of the conditions 265/7
RJ Harris not out 2 11 4 0 0 50.00
View dismissal CJ McKay run out (†Dhoni/Vinay Kumar) 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
49.6 from Vinay Kumar, McKay moves right across and tries to slog him, he doesn't pick the slower ball and misses it, Harris was already off the blocks so McKay had to hurry, Dhoni correctly threw it to Vinay who flicked it at the stumps, the ball deflected off the stumps and the third umpire took a look, he was a yard short 269/8

View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b McKay 92 140 111 7 0 82.88
34.1 84.6 mph, the bowling change works! Lands it on leg, Gambhir had already shuffled across the stumps a bit and had exposed the leg stump, the ball nipped in slightly and hit his pads, the umpire reckoned that was hitting leg, on seeing the pitch map, the ball looked like pitching on the border of the leg stump line 178/4
View dismissal V Sehwag c Hussey b McKay 20 38 21 3 0 95.23
9.1 81.4 mph, the opening stand is over, Sehwag is gone, an ordinary delivery from McKay, short of length ball that was slanting down the leg side, should have been easily helped away, instead Sehwag closes the face too early, leading edge results, and the ball pops up for a simple catch to point, a sign of the poor form he is in 52/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Forrest b McKay 18 41 28 1 0 64.28
18.1 82.8 mph, just when Kohli was looking set, he tries to go over the top of the off side, stays at the crease and doesn't get the elevation, Forrest takes it at sweeper cover 90/2
View dismissal RG Sharma c Starc b Harris 33 49 41 1 1 80.48
32.2 86.2 mph, Rohit's thrown it away! Very similar to Kohli's dismissal, he tries to loft through the line off a length ball, he skies it to Starc who runs forward from long-on. Rohit probably didn't realise it takes a lot more power to clear the straight boundaries 166/3
View dismissal SK Raina b Doherty 38 65 30 3 1 126.66
46.1 60.6 mph, well is that a twist? Credit to the bowler here, he tossed it up and invited Raina to give him the charge, Raina almost ended up yorking himself, the ball went straight through the gap between bat and pad and thudded the stumps 239/5
MS Dhoni*† not out 44 76 58 0 1 75.86
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Ponting b Doherty 12 11 8 0 0 150.00
48.4 another twist! Doherty bowls this one a bit flatter, Jadeja gets on his knee and slogs and tries to clear deep midwicket, straight down Ponting's throat 257/6
