  India innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RG Sharma c †Wade b Richardson 6 17 11 0 0 54.54
4.3 85.5 mph, Rohit Sharma gone early at the MCG, after opening 2016 with back-to-back tons! Full and in the corridor outside off, Rohit looked to run it down to third man. Richardson finds the outside edge and Wade snaffles it. Rohit was late to swish his bat away earlier. This time, he has nicked behind for 6 15/1
View dismissal S Dhawan b Hastings 68 108 91 9 0 74.72
26.5 75.9 mph, Hastings bowls Dhawan and lets out a roar! Full and Dhawan shuffles across off. He wants to pick it up and lift it away over square leg. No dice. Hastings nails the leg stump. Hastings has reward for hitting the deck hard and tying down India 134/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Bailey b Hastings 117 174 117 7 2 100.00
46.2 75.0 mph, Kohli steps out and hits it straight into the lap of extra cover. Hastings rolls his fingers across this slower one outside off, 120ks, Kohli slaps it to Bailey. Looked like a leg-breakish slower one. Kohli, who can't manufacture his own pace, is out for a run-a-ball 117 265/4
View dismissal AM Rahane c Maxwell b Hastings 50 72 55 4 1 90.90
44.2 #MCG is so big, Rahane can't clear the fielder. He jumps out, Hastings bangs it short. Rahane drags a pull, Smith runs to his right from long-on, catches it at the edge of the boundary. He loses his balance but tosses the ball over to the man running from deep midwicket (Maxi). We saw a similar catch in the Big Bash Sydney derby yesterday. Silk and Botha were at the tag-team work yesterday 243/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Maxwell b Hastings 23 23 9 2 2 255.55
48.5 87.1 mph, four, six, and out! Dhoni spanks it, Maxi takes it, he feels the heat. Wrings his hands. Dhoni danced out again, Hastings banged it onto the middle of the pitch at 140ks. Pulled to deep midwicket, where Maxi hangs onto the catch 288/6
View dismissal Gurkeerat Singh b Faulkner 8 6 7 1 0 114.28
47.4 Gurkeerat undone by the slower ball. This is a Faulkner special, comes from the back of the hand, Gurkeerat does not spot it. He is early into the slog and drags it back onto the leg stump off a thick inside edge. Two slower balls. Two wickets in two overs 274/5

View dismissal SE Marsh c †Dhoni b I Sharma 62 116 73 6 0 84.93
29.6 84.8 mph, huge roar from Ishant, and that tells you how much it means to him! Coming back to the delivery, it was a length ball that was angling across, good seam position, the ball held its line, Marsh nibbled at that one without any conviction, got a thin edge, straightforward catch for MS Dhoni. India back into this big time 167/4
View dismissal AJ Finch c †Dhoni b Yadav 21 30 23 3 0 91.30
7.1 85.1 mph, a wicket finally. The outside edge has been found courtesy some late movement. Good length, drew him forward, Finch went for the drive, but the foot was nowhere to the pitch of the ball, gets a thin edge which MS accepts gleefully. The manner in which he threw the ball up after pouching that had relief written all over it. He doesn't generally get very animated after taking a catch, he was this time. 48/1
View dismissal SPD Smith* c Rahane b Jadeja 41 45 45 5 0 91.11
18.5 86.3 mph, Jadeja strikes in his first over. India find a way past Smith. Jadeja held this one back, gets some turn as well. The outside edge is grazed and Rahane goes low at first slip to pouch it safely 112/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey st †Dhoni b Jadeja 23 23 21 3 0 109.52
26.1 56.7 mph, beautifully bowled. Ball drifts back in, rips off the surface, turns square, ball zips past Bailey's half-hearted prod, his back foot was in the air as Dhoni collected it cleanly and whipped the bails off in a split second. He made it look so easy. His back foot was on the line. That will definitely even the scales once again. Dhoni knew immediately that it was out. He didn't need confirmation from the third umpire. The giant screen flashes 'OUT' and there's a roar from the Indian contingent. 150/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c S Dhawan b Yadav 96 104 83 8 3 115.66
48.4 83.5 mph, looks for the glory hit, the length ball gets a little big on him, can't get any power behind that attempted slap over cover, Dhawan, running back from mid-off, keeps his eye on the ball and takes it well. It was swirling in the air but he kept his composure. Has come a little too late for India. Maxwell walks off to a huge round of applause. What a knock! 295/7
View dismissal MR Marsh run out (Yadav/†Dhoni) 17 24 14 3 0 121.42
35.1 Sran to Maxwell, steps out and crunches that wide of mid-off, Umesh gives it chase, turns around and fires a throw towards Dhoni's end. Mitch Marsh was strolling back casually as the stumps are broken down by the Indian captain, who didn't give any hint of rushing in to take the throw at all. Within the bat of an eye lid, the next thing Mitch Marsh knew was the stumps were broken and he was a couple of inches short. How good has Dhoni been with the gloves today? 204/5
View dismissal MS Wade c S Dhawan b I Sharma 6 17 10 0 0 60.00
38.1 84.6 mph, short ball angling away, Wade looks to fetch the pull from outside off, only manages to top edge the pull, Dhawan comes running in from mid-on, settles underneath it and completes a simple catch. Wade didn't look comfortable at all. Was overbalanced too, and the pressure has consumed him when all he had to do was bunt one and give strike to Maxwell. The roar in the Indian camp is back. 215/6
