5.1

Pathan to Warner, 3 runs, top timing from Warner. He sets up a solid base as he shuffles across and punches hard wide of mid-on. Gambhir's the man there, and he chases it down and slides to pull it in.

5.5

Pathan to Warner, 4 leg byes, Irfan's fluffed his lines in this over. This one goes too far down the leg side as he attempts a yorker, and it goes off Warner's boot to fine leg as he attempts the flick.

5.6

Pathan to Warner, 1 run, hard hands again. 132 kph, Irfan swings it away from Warner, who edges it through gully which is vacant once more. 13 off the over.

7.3

7.4

Pathan to Warner, FOUR, Warner's toying with Irfan now. Over-compensates with a short of length offering, Warner jumps back - he seemed to expect that - and whips gloriously through midwicket for four more.

7.5

Pathan to Warner, no run, another poor ball, this time he escapes. Warner hacks a short and wide ball without timing to short cover.

16.3

Yadav to Warner, FOUR, Warner at his best, and he has a 50 at long last! Over-pitched once more by Umesh, who is looking out of depth in this format. Warner sets himself up strongly in the crease, waits to get under the ball and bangs it away through the covers for four.

16.4

Yadav to Warner, no run, on a length outside off stump, chopped without much timing to point.

20.6

Jadeja to Warner, OUT, Australia lose one, India might have lost two. Full ball from Jadeja, Warner looked to sweep it with the turn, and got a top edge that took off into the Sydney sky. Raina runs back from square leg. Irfan runs in from deep fine leg. Like a silent movie, there was no calling between the two men, both transfixed on the orb in the sky. Irfan belatedly saw Raina hurtling towards him, and his eyes popped out in shock, but there was still no calling. Raina completes a superb catch and then they crash into each other. Raina inadvertedly punches Irfan in the chest, but he holds on to the ball tight. Both men are down. Irfan feels his chest gingerly as he goes off the field. A bit of a smile in there, which is good. Raina seems ok now. Great presence of mind to hold onto the ball through that collision. Raina does some stretches.

DA Warner c Raina b Jadeja 68 (98m 66b 7x4 0x6) SR: 103.03
