Australia v India

2.2

Kumar to Warner, OUT, caught at deep square leg! Warner took on Praveen, trying to pull off the front foot and clear what is a huge boundary. He didn't make proper contact and sent the ball soaring. Gambhir back-pedaled to get into position and judged the catch well a few yards in from the boundary

DA Warner c Gambhir b Kumar 8 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 19/1   AJ Finch 10* (6b 2x4)   P Kumar 1.2-0-8-1

2.5

Kumar to SE Marsh, OUT, edged and juggled once, juggled twice and finally caught! Marsh pushes forward at a delivery that slants across him and edges to Virender Sehwag's left at first slip. Sehwag fumbles on the first attempt and tumbles, as he tumbles he reaches out to tap the ball further in the air, so Dhoni, who moved to his left, can take the catch

SE Marsh c †Dhoni b Kumar 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 20/2   AJ Finch 11* (7b 2x4)   P Kumar 1.5-0-9-2

6.6

Kohli to Hussey, OUT, Finch has been run out! By two yards. Hussey dabbed the ball towards backward point and set off, Finch responded quickly. Jadeja was quicker at point, running to his left, picking up cleanly, and firing the throw on the move back to Dhoni, who broke the stumps with Finch well short

AJ Finch run out 36 (33m 23b 6x4 0x6) SR: 156.52

Australia 49/3   DJ Hussey 3* (9b)   V Kohli 1-0-7-0

8.3

R Sharma to Hussey, OUT, Jadeja again and another run out! Hussey cut the ball towards Jadeja's left at backward point. He didn't want to run for Jadeja had moved quickly and made a sliding save. Bailey, however, had run a long way down from the non-striker's end. Jadeja got to his feet quickly and threw to Rahul Sharma, who broke the stumps with Bailey not in the frame

GJ Bailey run out 3 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 54/4   DJ Hussey 5* (14b)   R Sharma 0.3-0-0-0

13.3

Jadeja to Hussey, OUT, caught and bowled! Hussey's popped one straight back to the bowler, one of the easier return chances Jadeja will take in his career. He slower the pace on the ball and it stopped on Hussey as he tried to drive on the leg side

DJ Hussey c & b Jadeja 24 (40m 29b 1x4 1x6) SR: 82.75

Australia 93/5   MS Wade 18* (15b 1x6)   RA Jadeja 1.3-0-7-1

17.3

R Sharma to MR Marsh, OUT, that is a lightning stumping from Dhoni. He collected the ball so close to the bails that he barely had to move to take them off, just a mere push forward. Marsh had stretched forward to drive on the off side and dragged his back foot out of his crease just a little

MR Marsh st †Dhoni b R Sharma 13 (12m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 119/6   MS Wade 31* (26b 1x4 1x6)   R Sharma 2.3-0-21-1

18.2

Vinay Kumar to Wade, OUT, a direct hit from cover and Wade's gone! The ball was full outside off, Wade drove it with power along the ground to Rohit Sharma, who was in the circle. He fielded cleanly and, seeing that Lee had sent Wade back, took his time, lined up the stumps and threw them down. Wade dived full length but it wasn't enough

MS Wade run out 32 (34m 29b 1x4 1x6) SR: 110.34

Australia 121/7   B Lee 1* (2b)   R Vinay Kumar 3.2-0-21-0

18.3

Vinay Kumar to McKay, OUT, edged and caught! McKay pokes at a good length ball that leaves the right-hander and Dhoni dives to his right to take a low catch

CJ McKay c †Dhoni b Vinay Kumar 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 121/8   B Lee 1* (2b)   R Vinay Kumar 3.3-0-21-1

19.3

R Sharma to Hogg, OUT, Hogg moved across his stumps to work the ball on the leg side but was trapped plumb by a fuller ball

GB Hogg lbw b R Sharma 4 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 130/9   B Lee 6* (4b 1x4)   R Sharma 3.3-0-28-2

19.4

R Sharma to Doherty, 1 run, OUT, worked off the pads through midwicket and the fourth run-out ends the innings. Raina came sprinting in from the deep, picked up the ball with one hand and threw accurately to Dhoni, who collected the ball over the bails and ran out Doherty

XJ Doherty run out 1 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 131/10   B Lee 6* (4b 1x4)   R Sharma 3.4-0-29-2
