View dismissal MS Wade b R Sharma 67 92 69 4 2 97.10
22.6 61.6 mph, inside-edged on to the stumps, Wade was getting beaten on the cut by the quick deliveries, he looked to open up and pull this time, the ball was not short enough, and he plays on, fantastic innings on ODI debut though 122/4
View dismissal DA Warner b Vinay Kumar 6 24 14 0 0 42.85
5.1 he's bowled Warner! they have not allowed him an inch of room, apart from one wide delivery, this one was pitched up from around the wicket, coming in on the stumps, Warner lunged at it and had a big heave, missed, and the ball rattled the middle stump, Vinay is pumped up, some relief for him after he was taken apart by Warner in Perth 15/1
View dismissal RT Ponting c Raina b Vinay Kumar 2 11 12 0 0 16.66
7.5 he's got Ponting now, Vinay has bowled much better deliveries than this one today, Ponting saw some rare width and went to punch it, it seemed to sit up a tad from short of a length and he ended up hitting it straight to short extra cover 19/2

14.4 46.8 mph, Clarke takes on the flighted ball from around the stumps and lofts it straight to deep midwicket, part-timer picks up a crucial wicket 49/3

View dismissal SK Raina c DJ Hussey b Christian 4 14 9 0 0 44.44
14.2 oh dear, Raina has fallen to the short ball, to Dan Christian, not the most threatening bowler going around, goes for an awkward pull, off the front foot, and only ends up lobbing the ball for midwicket to take a dolly running to his right 77/5

25.2 60.9 mph, Dhoni has holed out to long off, he has been swinging full deliveries hard from the crease, he got hold of this one alright, it flew off the middle high towards Warner, who timed his leap superbly to hold on to it 128/9
View dismissal RA Jadeja c MEK Hussey b McKay 19 34 25 0 0 76.00
22.3 82.5 mph, another one goes! this would have been a six at most grounds in India, McKay banging it in short, Jadeja looks to pull it into the stands beyond deep midwicket but only gets it as far as the man in the deep who holds on as he tumbles to the ground 114/6
View dismissal R Ashwin run out (Christian/Doherty) 5 4 3 0 0 166.66
23.1 from Doherty, superb work in the deep from Christian, Ashwin hung his bat out to a wide and low full toss and got it through point, Christian chased and stopped it with a slide, looked back to see them attempting a third, and steadied himself before aiming at Ashwin's end, knowing that the slower man would struggle to make it, he is caught short by a mile, and more 120/7
