  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ML Hayden c †Dhoni b Khan 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 and he's given him! Zaheer strikes with his third ball, pitching this one marginally fuller and closer to off stump, forcing Hayden to play at it and there's some deviation, Dhoni takes it low in front of him and they all go up in appeal and after a thought Asad Rauf raises his finger 0/1
View dismissal SM Katich c †Dhoni b Sharma 66 230 149 7 0 44.29
54.4 edged and taken, against the run of play! Katich pokes at a good-length ball with minimal footwork and the resultant thick edge is easily taken by Dhoni, after which Katich kicks the ground in disgust and turns for the dressing room .. so Ishant does indeed produce a breakthrough 166/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Harbhajan Singh 123 331 243 13 0 50.61
78.4 and Ponting goes lbw! Thats the ninth time he's fallen to Harbhajan in Tests, but perhaps it hit him outside the line ... Harbhajan tosses it up outside off stump, Ponting goes down to sweep, getting his front leg across, but the ball stays low and hits the pad, and after a long thought Asad Rauf gives it out ... I'll need to see replays of that 226/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Khan 146 402 276 15 1 52.89
149.5 Zak has done it again. A bit wider this time, swinging in again, with the shine, Hussey goes for a drive, but gets an inside edge onto middle stump. What an innings, though, take a bow Mr Cricket. His best score against India, and all through the innings he has never looked like getting out 430/10
View dismissal MJ Clarke lbw b Khan 11 39 28 2 0 39.28
89.2 and there's one for Zaheer in the last over of the day as well! Zaheer bowls this on a great length, pitching on leg stump, Clarke is late to get the bat down and gets struck flush in front, Zaheer asks the question very confidently and Koerzten slowly lifts his finger 254/4
View dismissal SR Watson b Sharma 2 15 14 0 0 14.28
92.3 but he's gone now! Ishant strikes early into the day, pitching it on a good length, on the upright seam, getting the ball to come back in and a feeble Watson half-heartedly pokes at it and the ball nips back past the edge to clip off stump 259/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Laxman b Sharma 33 126 110 4 0 30.00
122.6 slower ball bamboozles Haddin! Ishant rolls his fingers across this one, pitching on a good length and Haddin is into the shot a day too early and tries to half-drive but finds Laxman stationed at short cover 350/6
View dismissal CL White c Harbhajan Singh b Sharma 6 16 13 1 0 46.15
126.5 slow death again, loopy slower delivery, same one as to Haddin, White goes for the drive, and loops it to Harbhajan at extra cover. Harbhajan takes a good low catch; the ball was dipping low on him. This is Ishant's fourth wicket, just reward for hard work 362/7
View dismissal B Lee b Khan 27 88 61 4 0 44.26
147.5 cleaned him! this one stayed a bit low and came in a touch. Lee must have thought this was angling away, and looked to free his arms, but this one, pitched just short of good length, straightened a touch, and squeezed under the backlift to knock the off stump out of the ground 421/8
View dismissal MG Johnson b Khan 1 7 4 0 0 25.00
149.1 Zak you beauty, big reverse swing! Full, around off stump, swinging in towards Johnson, and swinging in late. Inside edge takes the off stump out 429/9

View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b Lee 21 96 61 3 0 34.42
19.2 and he's nailed him second ball! A quick delivery, and very accurate, good length and swinging in from just outside off, good angle there from Lee, Gambhir shapes to work it away towards leg but is early into the shot, the ball straightens and traps him in front and Lee knows he's got his man ... and early success for Australia on day three and India lose their first wicket 70/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Hayden b Johnson 45 115 64 7 0 70.31
22.6 oh thats a silly shot! Johnson bowls it full and wide, perhaps a touch slower, Sehwag stands rooted to his feet and reaches out for it, chopping it off the outer edge straight into the bucket hands of Hayden at slip, talk about throwing it away 76/2
View dismissal R Dravid lbw b Watson 51 149 104 7 0 49.03
49.5 Dravid is not happy at all, this one swung in, looked pretty plumb, but was mighty close to the inside edge. The bat hit the pad just before the all three - bat, ball and pad - came in close proximity to each other. Rauf lifted his finger right away, but Dravid looked disappointed. The replays suggested it might just have been pad first 155/5
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c White b Johnson 13 26 18 3 0 72.22
28.4 and Tendulkar just chips the ball to White at short cover! Johnson rolls his fingers over a slower one, pitching it full just outside off and Tendulkar is deceived into pushing the ball to the man brought in to that position the over before after he drove four through the covers, a massive wicket and the Chinnaswamy goes silent 94/3
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Haddin b Johnson 0 24 12 0 0 0.00
32.6 Well done Mitch! on the off stump, fuller than good length, seaming away a touch, Laxman is tentative, pokes at it, and edges it to Haddin, who gets it on the full this time. Laxman is gone for a 12-ball duck, and Johnson is proving very difficult with the variable bounce 106/4
View dismissal SC Ganguly lbw b Johnson 47 193 115 3 0 40.86
77.3 and he's given him! Johnson gets Ganguly with one that pitches outside off stump and comes back in to rap the front flap, it looks to be marginally outside and Asad Rauf has a thought before adjudging it out ... the break in play has done Ganguly in 232/7
View dismissal MS Dhoni b Clarke 9 65 51 0 0 17.64
65.4 Pup has done an Indian again, this one is slower, on the stumps, and turns away just enough to beat the slightly open face of Dhoni's bat, and take the off stump. What a player, Clarke, fails with the bat, and contributes with the ball 195/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c †Haddin b Watson 54 146 110 5 0 49.09
99.3 finally Watson strikes, this was short, and had some extra bounce, it gave Harbhajan some width, and he freed his arm, but the extra bounce took the thin top edge. Top knock from Harbhajan, the top score in this innings 312/8
Z Khan not out 57 189 121 7 0 47.10

111.6 finally Aussies break through, there's late swing, fuller than just good length, and swinging in late, Kumble is caught on the crease. Rauf has no doubt about this one, the only doubt could have been about the inside edge, but it hit the pad first and the bat second 343/9

View dismissal ML Hayden lbw b Khan 13 51 40 1 0 32.50
12.2 leg before! Zaheer gets his sixth wicket of this Test with a lovely late-swinging full delivery that catches Hayden in his crease, attempting to work the ball from across his pads, bat is late to come down and the late drift in from Zaheer seals his fate for 13 .. no doubts about that one 21/1
View dismissal SM Katich c Laxman b Harbhajan Singh 34 189 140 3 0 24.28
44.3 finally Harbhajan gets a wicket, this is flighted, falls short of driving length, and kicks up, Katich plays at it with hard hands, and gives Laxman an easy catch at silly point. The Sunday crowd is going mad, as is Harbhajan 99/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Laxman b Sharma 17 50 34 2 0 50.00
22.2 got him! sharp catch at short midwicket. Ponting walks into the trap. Angled in to the pads, on a little fuller than good length, instinctive shot towards midwicket, but Laxman is sharp there, catches it low in front of him. he nods to Ponting, acknowledging it was a clean catch, and off he goes 49/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Harbhajan Singh 31 122 72 3 0 43.05
50.5 Timber! How do you play this? Pitched on a length, just outside off, Hussey lets it ago, only to see it spin in and disturb the stumps. It was a toppie that hit a crack and turned in. A real beauty for the bowler, watching the batsman shoulder arms and lose the furniture 128/5
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Sehwag b Sharma 6 18 9 1 0 66.66

View dismissal SR Watson b Sharma 41 98 72 6 0 56.94

View dismissal V Sehwag c Hayden b Clark 6 23 9 1 0 66.66
5.1 good catch from Hayden at slip and Sehwag walks! Clark strikes for Australia and the drop from Haddin costs only a single, as Sehwag gets one sliding into leg stump and shapes to work it away, but he closes the face so early that the ball takes the back of the bat and flies low to Hayden at first slip, who pockets it very low to the ground 16/1
View dismissal R Dravid c Ponting b Lee 5 15 13 1 0 38.46
8.3 what a catch by Ponting! But that's soft from Dravid. It was overpitched, on the pads, and Dravid went for an instinctive flick. There was a midwicket in place, shorter than the orthodox one. It went to right of Ponting, and fast. Ponting went horizontal, and caught it while parallel to the ground. Superb reaction 24/2
