Harris to Gambhir, OUT, there's the outside edge, and Haddin takes a neat catch tumbling to his left, excellent line, made him play the pitched up delivery just around the off stump, and Haddin did the rest, it moved just enough away after pitching to take the edge

G Gambhir c †Haddin b Harris 3 (18m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

India 14/1   V Sehwag 10* (9b 2x4)   RJ Harris 2.3-0-3-1

Lyon to Sehwag, OUT, oh dear, Sehwag has given it away, danced down to the flighted full toss, and looked to lift with a closed face it on the leg side, big leading edge goes up vertically around short cover and is taken safely, Lyon cannot believe his luck

V Sehwag c Ponting b Lyon 62 (82m 53b 12x4 0x6) SR: 116.98

India 80/2   R Dravid 14* (44b 2x4)   NM Lyon 4.1-0-21-1

Harris to Dravid, OUT, Dravid is gone, taken at gully, poor stroke, reached out to a wide and full delivery, and went for the drive, Hussey takes the thick edge

R Dravid c Hussey b Harris 25 (95m 71b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.21

India 100/3   SR Tendulkar 9* (27b 1x4)   RJ Harris 10.1-3-17-2

Lyon to Tendulkar, OUT, that is out, Tendulkar had gotten himself into a shell, pushes forward to defend, off the glove, on to pad, simplest of catches to short leg, standing ovation for Sachin Tendulkar as he walks off Adelaide Oval, they keep up the applause till he disappears, massive respect

SR Tendulkar c Cowan b Lyon 13 (46m 34b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.23

India 110/4   VVS Laxman 6* (14b 1x4)   NM Lyon 10.4-2-34-2

Lyon to Laxman, OUT, and he's fallen to his strength, whipped from off stump straight into short midwicket, not a great delivery at all, shortish, he went back and across, and went through the shot with a wristy flourish, hit it straight to that man, is that his last innings for India?

VVS Laxman c Marsh b Lyon 35 (101m 88b 4x4 0x6) SR: 39.77

India 162/5   V Kohli 20* (56b 2x4)   NM Lyon 17.2-2-55-3

Siddle to Kohli, OUT, oh well, that is the last thing India needed, last specialist batsman gets run out off the final delivery of the penultimate over of the day trying to protect the nightwatchman, unbelievable, Virat worked a length ball towards midwicket and set off, Hilfenhaus, the fast bowler, ran to the ball, threw off balance and found the stumps before Virat could find the crease with a desperate dive, comfortably out, Australia in a huddle, Virat shouts in frustration as he walks back

V Kohli run out 22 (96m 62b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.48

India 166/6   I Sharma 2* (4b)   PM Siddle 10-3-36-0

Harris to Sharma, OUT, there is the first of the final four, Harris gets the edge through to Haddin, good length delivery straightening on off, Ishant pokes from the crease after that bouncer previous ball and that's it

I Sharma c †Haddin b Harris 2 (22m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

India 166/7   WP Saha 0* (12b)   RJ Harris 15.2-5-25-3

Siddle to Saha, OUT, that is the second one for the morning, Saha was eagerly getting forward, and that has consumed him, good length ball angled in, and then it changes direction to curl away, Saha went forward for a firm push, and feathered it through

WP Saha c †Haddin b Siddle 3 (20m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.00

India 170/8   R Ashwin 1* (1b)   PM Siddle 11.5-4-36-1
