43.1

Sehwag to McKay, OUT, Sehwag strikes. Dhoni has a stumping. Sehwag and Dhoni do a high-five. Superb keeping from the captain. The ball skidded along from a good length without spinning in. McKay was leaning out and it went past the outside edge. His backfoot stepped up for a fraction of a second, and Dhoni was waiting. The bails are off before you could have said "Rift".

Sehwag to Lee, OUT, and now Lee is gone. Having fired a couple through, Sehwag slows this one in the air and holds it back to hoodwink Lee as he charges out of the crease. He ends up swinging his swipe across the line, and the ball goes straight to Kohli at deep square leg.

Gambhir ran in from the deep and his throw came through slowly, bounced twice and was a good two yards off the stumps. Christian was in by the time Dhoni could break the stumps.

49.6

Sehwag to Christian, OUT, another wicket for Sehwag. Australia have made only 47 in the last 10 overs, and that despite 13 runs coming in this over. Christian skipped out, got to the pitch and muscled this strongly down to long on, but he didn't have the elevation to clear the boundary. Well held in the deep, and there are smiles on the Indian faces as the trot off.
