13,14,15 January 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Hilfenhaus to Sehwag, OUT, Hilfenhaus has struck, Sehwag is gone for a duck, the ball just swerves away a hint after pitching around middle and off, it draws him on to the front foot, gets his bat down late as he pokes tentatively at it, outside edge through to Ricky Ponting at second slip, big blow this

V Sehwag c Ponting b Hilfenhaus 0 (15m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 4/1   G Gambhir 4* (16b)   BW Hilfenhaus 1.2-0-1-1

Siddle to Dravid, OUT, Dravid is bowled, yet again! It wasn't the movement this time as it had been on previous occasions this series, that was a yorker aimed at the legs, Dravid was struck on the full outside leg and it ricocheted off the pads onto the stumps, quicker from Siddle and Dravid's bad run this series continues

R Dravid b Siddle 9 (40m 35b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.71

India 32/2   G Gambhir 20* (44b 2x4)   PM Siddle 0.5-0-7-1

Harris to Tendulkar, OUT, Tendulkar is gone now, India in big trouble, a length ball nipped back in after pitching just outside off, beats Tendulkar's defence and strikes him on the pads, looked to be taking out leg, umpire Dharmasena is convinced, he raises the finger, Australia are ecstatic, virtually the entire team converges on Harris, Tendulkar was looking to work that to leg, instead of defended down the track

SR Tendulkar lbw b Harris 15 (46m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

India 59/3   G Gambhir 31* (81b 3x4)   RJ Harris 9.1-2-13-1

Hilfenhaus to Gambhir, OUT, Australia in command here, they remove the set batsman, Gambhir plays a nothing shot, no footwork hangs his bat in response to a ball outside off that moves away a hint, a tickle down to the keeper, and the familiar failings of the Indian batting come to the fore once more

G Gambhir c †Haddin b Hilfenhaus 31 (112m 82b 3x4 0x6) SR: 37.80

India 63/4   VVS Laxman 4* (5b 1x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 8.1-0-15-2

Siddle to Kohli, OUT, the end of Kohli, he was looking so good this session, can't blame any demons in the pitch for that dismissal, a length ball that Kohli drives uppishly, Warner was waiting at point for that, some exuberant celebrations from Siddle, Kohli should be kicking himself to be dismissed in this manner after taking his time to settle in, and surviving a testing early phase

V Kohli c Warner b Siddle 44 (107m 81b 6x4 0x6) SR: 54.32

India 131/5   VVS Laxman 27* (79b 4x4)   PM Siddle 10-3-33-2

Siddle to Laxman, OUT, Siddle dramatically turns a session which India seemed to be winning, a short of length ball just outside off, gets the outside edge, first slip takes it and one more well-set Indian batsman gives it away

VVS Laxman c Clarke b Siddle 31 (124m 86b 5x4 0x6) SR: 36.04

India 138/6   MS Dhoni 3* (4b)   PM Siddle 10.5-3-36-3

Starc to Vinay Kumar, OUT, Starc doesn't take too long to make an impact this session, first ball wicket for him, that one swings in towards the pad, no doubt about that one, Vinay's first Test innings is a short one, cue more "where's Ashwin?" mails

R Vinay Kumar lbw b Starc 5 (14m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

India 152/7   MS Dhoni 12* (20b 2x4)   MA Starc 10.1-2-36-1

Hilfenhaus to Dhoni, OUT, this is ending quicker than expected, Dhoni joins the procession, the familiar poke outside off, not much feet as he plays that, easy catch for second slip

MS Dhoni c Ponting b Hilfenhaus 12 (30m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

India 152/8   Z Khan 0* (5b)   BW Hilfenhaus 16.2-5-37-3

Hilfenhaus to Khan, OUT, well, that comedy is over, Zaheer swipes as he has all innings, gets the outside edge and another simple catch for first slip

Z Khan c Clarke b Hilfenhaus 2 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

India 157/9   I Sharma 3* (6b)   BW Hilfenhaus 17.2-5-39-4

Starc to Sharma, OUT, that didn't take long at all, less than hour an half after tea, the tail keels over, Ishant nicks a short of length ball to the keeper, at least India managed 191 in Sydney, this time it's only 161

I Sharma c †Haddin b Starc 3 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

India 161/10   UT Yadav 4* (4b 1x4)   MA Starc 12.2-3-39-2
