View dismissal RG Sharma c Maxwell b Starc 138 228 139 9 4 99.28
48.4 87.8 mph, caught on the edge of the circle, that is Starc's fifth and it comes off his worst ball of the day - a full toss. Rohit was looking for quick runs, but his cow-corner club comes low off the inside half of the bat and picks out midwicket 262/7
View dismissal S Dhawan c Finch b Starc 2 3 4 0 0 50.00
0.5 88.9 mph, edged and taken! Starc continues where he left off against England. It's a teaser outside off and the fuller length drew Dhwan into that favourite cover drive of his. Except he doesn't account for the outswing again. Thick edge flies towards Finch at slip, who takes it over his head 3/1
View dismissal AM Rahane c †Haddin b Sandhu 12 29 22 2 0 54.54
7.2 82.9 mph, nicked and taken. There's that bounce that he seems to get and it bests Rahane's intention to cut. Top strike for a first one, and it was brought about by the pressure created and sustained at both ends. There wasn't enough room for the shot, but Rahane opted for it and pays the price 33/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Bailey b Faulkner 9 24 16 0 0 56.25
12.5 75.3 mph, so easily done! Kohli has perished to his own attacking intent. It was just a shade short, barely had room to free the hands. Short-armed pull came out and ends up as a top edge which is taken by the captain jogging in from mid-on. 59/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Maxwell b Starc 51 105 63 6 0 80.95
34.6 88.3 mph, he's thrown it away! It was a fuller delivery outside off and Raina got on the front foot and hacked it straight at mid-on. And you know what happens when Australia get an opening... 185/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Starc 19 42 31 2 0 61.29
44.2 80.6 mph, his penultimate over of the match and he secures a huge strike for Australia. The offcutter has very little room but Dhoni wants to slice it. Gets a thick inside edge and it crashes into the stumps 237/5
View dismissal AR Patel lbw b Starc 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
44.4 89.9 mph, there goes another domino! Spearing yorker strikes the back leg with Akshar playing all around it. Would that have missed leg? Beaten for pace, beaten for movement and India are slipping 237/6
R Ashwin not out 14 25 20 0 0 70.00
View dismissal B Kumar b Starc 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
48.5 91.1 mph, cleaned him up! that's six! Changed the angle of delivery and came around the wicket to Bhuvi, the new batsman. It was full, it was speared in on middle. The batsman stayed beside the ball to open up the off side, but fails to connect with his shovel drive. Starc smile might as well translate as 'you miss, I hit' 262/8

View dismissal AJ Finch c †Dhoni b Yadav 96 161 127 5 2 75.59
40.1 86.1 mph, nicks to the keeper! Finch misses out on a hundred on his home ground. Looks to force a short ball that seems to gain a bit more bounce than he expected. Feather through the keeper gives India a bit of a boost 219/4
View dismissal DA Warner c Raina b Yadav 24 41 22 3 0 109.09
9.1 85.5 mph, skies it! Raina calls for it immediately and yells in delight after completing a soft dismissal. It was short of a good length, but Warner's front foot press works against him. Then he decided to play a sort of a pull shot when there wasn't much room. Ends up spooning a simple catch at extra cover, which was well taken. 51/1
View dismissal SR Watson b Patel 41 47 39 5 1 105.12
22.4 60.5 mph, slugs across the line and yells at himself as his off stump is knocked back. The Dhoni mantra works, reduce the runs, limit the boundaries and lure the mistake. Good, tight bowling from the left-arm darter 115/2
View dismissal SPD Smith c Ashwin b Mohammed Shami 47 66 52 6 0 90.38
39.4 76.1 mph, oops, he's swatted a slower bouncer right at short midwicket! Played with total control for the length of his innings but Shami did well to get enough height behind that ball to foil Smith's timing 216/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c & b Kumar 20 34 23 1 1 86.95
46.3 68.2 mph, slower ball! Taken! Maxi has been sent back by a legcutter. He had been rushing down the track, has to adjust. Attempts a flick and gets it quite high on the bat to lob a simple catch back at the bowler. 248/6
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c †Dhoni b Ashwin 5 12 11 0 0 45.45
43.2 59.8 mph, has he done it? Yes! Beautiful stumping! Good length ball sliding down leg, Bailey attempts a flick and overbalances and that fraction of a second is enough for Dhoni to jump across and flick the bails. Oh, and HotSpot says there was a nick in there too so it is actually a catch 230/5
