Pattinson to Gambhir, OUT, doesn't take long for Pattinson to strike! That really squared up Gambhir, landed on middle and slightly shaped away off a good length, Gambhir was squared up with the extra bounce and movement, thick outside edge to Clarke at first slip

G Gambhir c Clarke b Pattinson 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 0/1   V Sehwag 0* (0b)   JL Pattinson 0.3-0-0-1

Siddle to Dravid, OUT, bat pad! The short leg comes into play, pitches it up a bit further, Dravid tries to flick it to the leg side, inside edges to the pad and Cowan takes it easily fielding close

R Dravid c Cowan b Siddle 5 (42m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 15.15

India 30/2   V Sehwag 23* (27b 3x4)   PM Siddle 1.3-0-14-1

Pattinson to Sehwag, OUT, Sehwag had it coming because he was edgy all morning, Pattinson does all the basics right, pitches it up on the channel just outside the off stump, draws Sehwag to poke at it, loud edge and Haddin pouches it

V Sehwag c †Haddin b Pattinson 30 (83m 51b 4x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

India 55/3   SR Tendulkar 18* (23b 4x4)   JL Pattinson 6.2-1-18-2

Pattinson to Laxman, OUT, Pattinson gets the SCG's Big Fish! Pattinson once again keeps it simple and pitches it up, draws Laxman forward and induces the thick outside edge which flies to Marsh at third slip, Laxman was a bit late in getting forward and across

VVS Laxman c Marsh b Pattinson 2 (10m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

India 59/4   SR Tendulkar 20* (29b 4x4)   JL Pattinson 7.5-2-20-3

Siddle to Kohli, OUT, India lose half their side before 100! Yet another one falls to a catch behind the wicket, Siddle bowls it in the channel outside off, Kohli was forward when he should have stayed back, failed to account for the bounce and it took the edge higher up on the bat, easy take for Haddin

V Kohli c †Haddin b Siddle 23 (50m 41b 3x4 0x6) SR: 56.09

India 96/5   SR Tendulkar 32* (62b 6x4)   PM Siddle 10-3-41-2

Pattinson to Tendulkar, OUT, Pattinson gets the other SCG Big Fish as well! Off an inside edge, Pattinson bowls it full and wide outside off, Tendulkar bends forward to drive through the covers but gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, not Pattinson's best delivery of the day to be honest but he's on a roll

SR Tendulkar b Pattinson 41 (133m 89b 8x4 0x6) SR: 46.06

India 124/6   MS Dhoni 12* (21b 1x4)   JL Pattinson 12.5-3-38-4

Hilfenhaus to Ashwin, OUT, and finally some reward for Hilfenhaus! Gets Ashwin with a cracker of a delivery outside off, probes on the off stump, moved away a touch late, took the outside edge as he tried closing the face of the bat, carries well to first slip, Hilfenhaus deserved an earlier wicket but this is an apt reward for his persistence

R Ashwin c Clarke b Hilfenhaus 20 (48m 39b 1x4 0x6) SR: 51.28

India 178/7   MS Dhoni 44* (63b 5x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 19.2-6-51-1

Hilfenhaus to Khan, OUT, he's got two in two! Zaheer Khan gets a snorter that rises up to his face, he takes his eyes off it, bends down to evade it but the ball's too quick for him, tries to drop his gloves but the ball lobs off his gloves to Cowan at short leg, they check for the no-ball but it's legal

Z Khan c Cowan b Hilfenhaus 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 178/8   MS Dhoni 44* (63b 5x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 19.3-6-51-2

Hilfenhaus to Sharma, OUT, Hilfenhaus is running through the line-up now! He gives Ishant the same brutal delivery to Zaheer, short one on the face, too much for the tailender to fend off, lobs off his glove to Cowan at short leg

I Sharma c Cowan b Hilfenhaus 0 (2m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 186/9   MS Dhoni 52* (69b 7x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 20.3-7-51-3

Siddle to Yadav, OUT, Yadav doesn't last the over and Siddle gets his 100th Test wicket! He lands it on the channel outside off, Umesh is caught at the crease and pokes at it, Haddin takes the edge, they check for the no-ball, he's safe

UT Yadav c †Haddin b Siddle 0 (10m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 191/10   MS Dhoni 57* (77b 8x4)   PM Siddle 13.3-3-55-3
