View dismissal RG Sharma c Faulkner b Watson 31 21 20 4 1 155.00
4.1 86.7 mph, Welcome back Watto. He is celebrating again. He got a big wicket for Sydney Thunder in the BBL final not long ago, and he has got the big one. Sharma, who had nine lives, doesn't get another. The slower offcutter has been driven straight down the lap of mid-on 40/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Wade b Watson 5 24 8 0 0 62.50
4.5 76.2 mph, two wickets in the first over for Watto. Those celebrations are back. Arms aloft. Slower bouncer, Dhawan shapes up to pull, but the ball hasn't arrived. He then looks to steer it, but is late on the attempt and the extra bounce takes the edge through to Wade 41/2
V Kohli not out 90 71 55 9 2 163.63
View dismissal SK Raina b Faulkner 41 63 34 3 1 120.58
19.2 84.8 mph, Raina moves too far across and is bowled by a straight full toss. He has premeditated the ramp, but as he is bringing his bat across it hits the ground and gets a bit stuck there. Too late on the ball then 175/3

  Australia innings (target: 189 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Finch* lbw b Ashwin 44 42 33 4 2 133.33
9.2 57.2 mph, the umpire didn't get to watch the previous delivery so Finch gives him an action replay sans the inside edge. He moves well across the stumps to try to sweep an offbreak, and is beaten again. Pitches within, straightens to hit middle. Dead plumb. Not so sure about the replay that is showing it pitched outside leg. That shake right at the last moment makes it look not right 89/3
View dismissal DA Warner c Kohli b Bumrah 17 23 9 2 1 188.88
5.1 87.6 mph, Bumrah has the wicket. He has clearly looked like India's most impressive bowler. Just difficult to read his pace with that unorthodox action. Warner sees a short ball, looks for the pull, but it hurries on to him, and he drags it from outside off and is caught at mid-on 47/1
View dismissal SPD Smith c Kohli b Jadeja 21 16 14 3 0 150.00
8.6 61.3 mph, Smith gets a long send-off from Kohli. Smith looks to work this to leg, gets a massive leading edge to extra cover where Kohli takes the catch and gives it to Smith. Seems to be suggesting Smith had been chirping (perhaps when batting or when Kohli was batting) 89/2
View dismissal TM Head lbw b Jadeja 2 7 5 0 0 40.00
10.6 61.6 mph, Jadeja has got another wicket. India have Australia where they want them. Like rabbits in headlights against spin. Head has not got a loose ball so far and tries to manufacture a sweep. Misses. Looks pretty dead. The umpire has no hesitation. Replays show impact is outside off. He has got himself outside the line of off 93/4
View dismissal CA Lynn c Yuvraj Singh b Pandya 17 20 16 0 1 106.25
14.6 84.0 mph, Pandya has his wicket. The wide line has worked. This is another wide he has ruined. Second time in this over he has gone and played a delivery that would have been called a wide. The last time he nearly got caught at deep cover, this time he finds extra cover. Yuvraj takes an overhead catch. This seems to have hurt his hands, but Yuvraj has taken it nonetheless 124/6
View dismissal SR Watson c Nehra b Ashwin 12 8 10 0 1 120.00
13.3 58.4 mph, Nehra takes the nervous catch. India must think they are home and dry. Watson, under pressure, goes for the big sweep, and Ashwin's bounce takes the top edge. It is a skier, and Nehra somehow manages to never look comfortable under those. At short fine leg, he makes many a heart skip a beat before pouching this 110/5
View dismissal MS Wade c Jadeja b Pandya 5 13 7 0 0 71.42
16.1 76.5 mph, Pandya is on a hat-trick. Slower ball, on a length, in the slot, Wade looks to go for a six but skies it. Jadeja takes it calmly at deep midwicket 129/7
View dismissal JP Faulkner b Bumrah 10 11 7 0 1 142.85
17.2 84.1 mph, and Bumrah has come back with a replay of how he dismissed Faulkner in the ODI. Yorker, at the stumps, and Faulkner looks to sweep, and is bowled. Game, set and match 143/8
View dismissal KW Richardson b Nehra 9 10 7 0 0 128.57
18.2 81.6 mph, full and straight, Richardson mows across the line, Nehra hits the off stump 149/9
View dismissal CJ Boyce c Pandya b Bumrah 3 9 6 0 0 50.00
19.3 66.4 mph, all over. The debutants combine to get Boyce out. Bumrah does him in with the slower ball, Pandya takes an easy catch at mid-off. Eventually a comfortable win for India 151/10
SW Tait not out 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
