  Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AC Gilchrist b I Sharma 15 30 17 3 0 88.23
5.3 first strike to India! Gilchrist doesn't move in his crease, just defending one that nips back in off a length and inside-edges back onto his stumps 25/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c †Dhoni b Pathan 13 63 34 0 1 38.23
11.3 edged and gone! Pathan strikes quickly, defeating Hayden with extra bounce as he tries to cut one too close to the body, and the edge is snapped up by Dhoni 43/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* c RG Sharma b Patel 10 24 14 1 0 71.42
10.1 and his poor form continues to haunt him! A short one bounces on him more than anticipated and he shapes to drive off the back foot, but the ball goes straight to Rohit at point 41/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c I Sharma b Pathan 79 175 108 6 0 73.14
46.1 gone! Clarke goes pulling a slower delivery, short though it was, straight down the throat of a well-positioned Ishant at deep midwicket 187/8
View dismissal A Symonds c Uthappa b I Sharma 3 22 12 0 0 25.00
15.4 another one bites the dust! Symonds tries to steer one just too close to the body, as it comes back in at extra height, and the ball goes nowhere but into gully's hands ... a superb decision to bring Ishant back for the first over of the final Powerplay 50/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †Dhoni b Pathan 5 38 21 0 0 23.80
23.4 edged and taken! Pathan gets his second, striving for swing and inviting Hussey into a drive outside off stump, he succeeds in getting movement in the air and off the pitch and the thin edge is gleefully accepted by Dhoni 73/5
View dismissal JR Hopes st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 19 36 18 2 0 105.55
30.2 thats lovely teamwork! Harbhajan tosses up the doosra, Hopes doesn't pick it all as he advances out of his crease, the ball goes on past his bat and Dhoni completes an easy stumping .. and Australia have slipped even further into a hole 112/6
View dismissal GB Hogg run out (†Dhoni/Harbhajan Singh) 32 62 52 2 0 61.53
45.1 from Harbhajan Singh, comes out, Harbhajan sees him coming and fires it full and flat, Hogg inside-edges back past leg stump and Clarke wants the single, Dhoni makes good ground and there really was no run there, so Hogg has to sacrifice his wicket for his senior partner as Harbhajan accepts the throw and does the needful 184/7
MG Johnson not out 9 22 13 0 0 69.23
View dismissal NW Bracken c †Dhoni b Pathan 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
46.5 and thats another, as Pathan works that channel to suck Bracken into a loose drive outside off stump, good outswinger, and Dhoni dives to his right to hold the thick edge 187/9

View dismissal MS Dhoni*† run out (Hayden) 37 97 50 1 0 74.00
34.3 from Hopes, ah, a poor call! Impatiently driven into the covers, with too much bottom hand, Dhoni calls for the single but a diving, sliding Rohit is caught just short by a terrific direct hit from Hayden and Dhoni pays for that risky call 134/6
View dismissal RV Uthappa c †Gilchrist b Johnson 18 57 36 1 0 50.00
37.5 gone! Uthappa makes room and tries to play a cute little dab, but the change of pace from Johnson does him in, and he gets a thin touch through to Gilchrist 150/8
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c †Gilchrist b Johnson 4 8 6 0 0 66.66
