View dismissal W Jaffer c †Gilchrist b Lee 16 94 53 2 0 30.18
19.2 gets the edge! Australia are right back in this already, and once again Lee has got Jaffer, driving away from his body 59/2
View dismissal V Sehwag c †Gilchrist b Johnson 29 80 58 6 0 50.00
16.4 he's gone! Sehwag trying to cut off the back foot, gets the outside edge off a quicker one, at 148.6kph to be exact, and Gilchrist does the rest 57/1
View dismissal R Dravid c Ponting b Symonds 93 278 183 14 0 50.81
77.6 now where did that atrocious shot come from? Symonds tosses it up well outside off and in an extraordinary mental block, with a hundred there for the taking, Dravid plays an ugly cross-batted swipe and top-edges to the man at cover, who just side-steps a touch and holds a dolly 278/5
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Lee 71 175 128 9 0 55.46
57.4 this time Lee gets his man, he pitches short of a length and gets Tendulkar back in the crease, playing down the wrong line, the ball hit him on the top of the pad and at the time of contact Tendulkar was jumping in the air, Lee appeals confidently and umpire Rauf eventually raises the finger ... replays show it was indeed high and going over the top of the stumps ... Tendulkar shakes his head as he walks off 198/3
View dismissal SC Ganguly c Hussey b Johnson 9 17 12 2 0 75.00
60.5 oh good catch, Hussey! Ganguly stands his ground and flirts with a wide delivery, and Hussey dives to his right and intercepts a very good catch in the air at backward point to get rid of him, terrific reflexes 214/4
View dismissal VVS Laxman c Tait b Lee 27 89 56 3 0 48.21
81.4 and there you go! Laxman, like Dravid not too long ago, plays a poor stroke, a horrific back-foot shot to a short ball from Lee, walking back in his crease and flat-batting to mid-off, where Tait leaps up in the air and takes a simple enough catch 284/6
View dismissal MS Dhoni lbw b Clark 19 84 52 2 0 36.53
95.4 pitches in line with off, there's a huge, long appeal and Umpire Rauf takes his time to give that one out. Dhoni gets in a big stride forward on a bouncy pitch, the ball hits him on the knee roll, the batsman not quite bending his knee on the forward defensive 328/7
View dismissal IK Pathan lbw b Johnson 28 73 44 4 0 63.63
96.6 another wicket, a full delivery, a dipping low toss rapping him on the front shin in front of leg, and a smiling Johnson roars his appeal, knowing what the answer will be 330/8
View dismissal A Kumble* c Rogers b Clark 1 10 6 0 0 16.66
97.1 top catch from Rogers, diving full length to his right in the covers, as Kumble, repeating his lashing efforts for the previous over, drives on the up, his shoulders pointing upwards so he wasn't over the ball, and Rogers snaps it up with a classic catch 330/9
View dismissal RP Singh c Hussey b Johnson 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
98.2 Johnson wraps up the innings by flinging down a climbing delivery which rises and catches the top of RP Singh's blade, the ricochet pouched by Hussey who stands, nearly celebrates before the ball's reached him, and was never in a month of Sundays going to drop that one 330/10

14.3 and thats an immaculate length from Sharma to hand Ponting another poor score! There was movement and bounce after the ball landed in a good channel, sucking Ponting forward then back as he hangs the bat out and a regulation outside-edge is snapped up by Dravid at third slip!
