  India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal G Gambhir c †Haddin b Johnson 67 192 140 9 0 47.85
41.1 it's a double strike and Australia have suddenly seized the initiative, Johnson pitches it on a good length outside off and gets it to straighten, Gambhir shapes to push it down to the covers but manages a thin outside edge, Haddin knows it and so does Asad Rauf who raises the finger 146/3
View dismissal V Sehwag c †Haddin b Johnson 35 70 36 6 0 97.22
14.2 Johnson had set him up the previous ball and now he has his reward, he bangs it in short of a length down the leg side again, Sehwag this time shuffles and tries to nudge it down the leg side, there was a sound before the ball reached Haddin, he was confident, Koertzen was convinced. I need to see a replay of that. 70/1
View dismissal R Dravid b Lee 39 118 70 7 0 55.71
40.5 the legstump is disturbed! After chasing a wide delivery outside off the previous ball, he tries to cream this one as well through the offside, he drives but fails to cover the line properly and suceeds in getting an inside edge which pushes back his leg stump 146/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Hayden b Siddle 88 186 111 10 0 79.27
81.5 And Siddle picks up his first Test wicket and guess who it is! Isn't he happy. he pitches it on the corridor outside off and forces him into the stroke, he fishes at it and the outside edge travels low to Hayden at first slip who dives to his left, it's not the first time Tendulkar has fallen to a debut bowler, nevertheless it was just fabulous watching him bat today 305/5
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Haddin b Johnson 12 18 19 2 0 63.15
45.1 another catch down the legside! Johnson strays down the legside and the ball moves away very slightly close to Laxman's pads, he tries to glance it fine but gets a thin edge off the bat, Haddin wasn absolutely sure of the edge and so was Asad Rauf whose finger went up immediately 163/4
View dismissal SC Ganguly c Lee b White 102 332 225 8 0 45.33
119.1 Rush of blood and he's out caught in the deep, White delivers that a little wide of off stump, Ganguly makes a bit of room, gives the charge and goes ahead with the loft, it was clear from the start that he wasn't in full control of the shot, Lee takes the catch falling backwards at long-off 435/7
View dismissal I Sharma c Katich b Siddle 9 40 33 1 0 27.27
89.6 I think Ponting should take all the credit for that wicket purely for his field placement, Siddle digs it in short outside leg and forces Ishant to fend it off as it gains on him, the ball lobs off the top part of his bat and goes straight to Katich at leg gully 326/6
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† lbw b Siddle 92 176 124 8 4 74.19
128.6 was he a little unlucky there? A big inswinger by Siddle, Dhoni moves across his stumps and attempts to work it to the on side for a single, it appears as if he got an inside edge onto his pads, Siddle is confident and Koertzen raises the finger, that may have missed the legstump as well, I need to see another replay of that 469/10
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh b White 1 16 9 0 0 11.11
123.1 White strikes again! The one that goes through straight, he's almost made it his stock delivery, Harbhajan leaves a big gap between bat and pad as he tries to drive through the off side, the ball knocks back the off stump, lazy shot by Harbhajan 442/8
View dismissal Z Khan run out (Lee/†Haddin) 2 25 10 0 0 20.00
127.6 White to Dhoni, quite unnecessary there, White bowls seam up, Dhoni punches a skiddy delivery to Lee at mid-off and risks the single, Zaheer was always struggling and couldn't beat the throw despite the dive, Haddin whips the bails and Koertzen doesn't call for the third umpire, it was that obvious 469/9
