I Sharma to Rogers, OUT, Dhawan takes it in the slips, Rogers is gone! Teasing delivery that kept going away from the left-hander who had committed to the cover drive. A healthy outside edge flies straight at second slip at hip-height and he takes it reasonably well

CJL Rogers c Dhawan b I Sharma 9 (39m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.90

Australia 50/1   DA Warner 38* (27b 7x4)   I Sharma 1.5-1-1-1

Aaron to Watson, OUT, Dhawan is on fire at second slip! Aaron finally gets one and it comes off a bit of an airy stroke from Watson. The front-foot is checked, it looks fine. This is a back of a length delivery cutting Watson for room, but he has premeditated a slice behind point and gets a nick which is well pouched by second slip moving to his left

SR Watson c Dhawan b Aaron 14 (53m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 42.42

Australia 88/2   DA Warner 61* (58b 10x4)   VR Aaron 6.3-0-45-1

KV Sharma to Warner, OUT, runs down the track and he's holed out at deep midwicket. Karn looks up to the sky and in celebration of his wicket. Walks away to a standing ovation as he raises his bat to them and to Phillip Hughes. Falls on his own sword as he tries to establish Australia's dominance. Wasn't quite to the pitch and the he struck the ball a little too high on the bat

DA Warner c I Sharma b KV Sharma 145 (253m 163b 19x4 0x6) SR: 88.95

Australia 258/3   SPD Smith 23* (38b 3x4)   KV Sharma 14.2-0-61-1

Aaron to Marsh, OUT, taken at gully and Kohli throws the ball high up in the air. Extra bounce gets rid of Marsh. Tight line just outside off to force the batsman to push and the variation that a new cherry provides takes care of the rest. India desperately needed that

MR Marsh c Kohli b Aaron 41 (106m 87b 5x4 0x6) SR: 47.12

Australia 345/4   SPD Smith 68* (119b 9x4)   VR Aaron 15.2-1-89-2

Mohammed Shami to Lyon, OUT, through him! Shami has made an important break. It was a good length ball targeting middle. Lyon did not move forward enough to counter the ball moving back in and it takes an inside edge, gets the top flap of the pad and hits timber

NM Lyon b Mohammed Shami 3 (14m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Australia 352/5   SPD Smith 72* (124b 9x4)   Mohammed Shami 16.3-1-83-1

Mohammed Shami to Haddin, OUT, there it is, India have ended the day on a high! Haddin was struggling around the off stump and this time the edge carries through to the keeper. Beautiful delivery, and that is what the new ball can do and then placing it in the right areas - on and around off stump with some late seam away

BJ Haddin c †Saha b Mohammed Shami 0 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 354/6   SPD Smith 72* (130b 9x4)   Mohammed Shami 17.2-1-83-2

KV Sharma to Clarke, OUT, no mistake this time. Clarke goes for a sweep and has found square leg. Adelaide stands up to appreciate their captain. The coach pats him on the head as he walks back, his family is there as well. Looks quite weary as he walks off.

MJ Clarke c Pujara b KV Sharma 128 (244m 163b 18x4 0x6) SR: 78.52

Australia 517/7   SPD Smith 162* (231b 21x4)   KV Sharma 32.2-1-143-2
