Commonwealth Bank Series - 4th match

Australia v India

India won by 4 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

3.1

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, OUT, the opening experiment fails for Ponting, Vinay does well to pitch it up on the off stump, moves it away slightly, Ponting drives inside out and spoons it Kohli at point, Ponting looked at bit awkward at the crease when he played that and the follow through too

RT Ponting c Kohli b Vinay Kumar 6 (14m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 14/1   DA Warner 7* (5b)   R Vinay Kumar 1.1-0-7-1

9.3

Vinay Kumar to Warner, OUT, Communication Breakdown! Warner punches it down to cover point, fails to bisect the packed off side field, Rohit is sharp, he gathers and throws to the bowler's end, Clarke was away for the run and was already near the striker's end, both were running to the same end but Warner was in no-man's land as he decided to sacrifice his wicket

DA Warner run out 18 (46m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 53/2   MJ Clarke 26* (20b 5x4)   R Vinay Kumar 4.3-0-29-1

17.5

Yadav to Clarke, OUT, not sure what Clarke was trying to do but full credit to the bowler for this, he saw Clarke making room and taking a few paces down and cleverly slipped in a slower ball at 121 kph, Clarke had to change his shot and tap it away with soft hands, had to really stretch out and he ended up chopping it onto his stumps

MJ Clarke b Yadav 38 (63m 43b 5x4 0x6) SR: 88.37

Australia 81/3   PJ Forrest 16* (27b 1x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 3.5-1-11-1

35.3

Yadav to Forrest, OUT, miscued! Forrest tries to push it in the Powerplay, pulls a short delivery and fails to control it, Vinay runs forward from deep square leg and takes it, that ends a very impressive debut innings by Forrest

PJ Forrest c Vinay Kumar b Yadav 66 (92m 83b 5x4 2x6) SR: 79.51

Australia 179/4   DJ Hussey 47* (50b 3x4)   UT Yadav 6.3-1-22-2

44.2

Khan to Hussey, OUT, good reflexes from Sehwag! Zaheer fires it full on the pads and Hussey tries to work that away past square leg with his wrists, he chips it and Sehwag at square leg has to time his dive well to his right, which he does, and takes it an inch from the ground

DJ Hussey c Sehwag b Khan 72 (100m 76b 5x4 0x6) SR: 94.73

Australia 235/5   DT Christian 29* (27b 1x4)   Z Khan 8.2-0-42-1

47.4

Vinay Kumar to Christian, 1 run, OUT, good work by Jadeja, Christian works it down to long-on and tries to put pressure on Jadeja by pushing for the second run, the throw is accurate to Dhoni and the batsman is well short, the third umpire takes a look

DT Christian run out 39 (57m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Australia 254/6   MS Wade 8* (11b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 8.4-1-50-1

49.2

Vinay Kumar to Wade, OUT, Wade's scratchy knock ends, he backs away to cart that over the on side and misses a slower ball, hits the leg stump, Wade is very frustrated for not making the most of the conditions

MS Wade b Vinay Kumar 16 (25m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Australia 265/7   RJ Harris 1* (3b)   R Vinay Kumar 9.2-1-54-2

49.6

Vinay Kumar to McKay, OUT, McKay moves right across and tries to slog him, he doesn't pick the slower ball and misses it, Harris was already off the blocks so McKay had to hurry, Dhoni correctly threw it to Vinay who flicked it at the stumps, the ball deflected off the stumps and the third umpire took a look, he was a yard short

CJ McKay run out 3 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 269/8   RJ Harris 2* (4b)   R Vinay Kumar 10-1-58-2
