View dismissal ML Hayden run out (Singh/†Dhoni) 54 100 66 9 0 81.81
21.2 Harbhajan Singh to Martyn, a disastrous mix-up! Martyn dabbed that short on the off side, he sets off, stops and then goes for the run because Hayden kept coming. The throw came to the keeper's end and Hayden was well short even though he dived 87/3
View dismissal SM Katich c Raina b Agarkar 9 35 23 1 0 39.13
8.2 what a catch! Full outside off, Katich flays at it, ball speeds in the air and looks destined for four, but out of the blue dives Raina at point and simply pouches that with two hands going to his left, that ball was travelling at some speed but he did extremely well to intercept it, India get a breakthrough! 36/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Agarkar b Patel 4 13 9 0 0 44.44
11.1 got 'em! Fullish on the legs, Ponting whips that off the pads high in the air, doesnt keep it down, ball goes up and comes down to Agarkar at deep fine leg who takes a simple catch, Munaf gets his man 49/2
View dismissal DR Martyn run out (Tendulkar/Mongia) 19 60 38 1 1 50.00
24.2 from Mongia, another run-out! Martyn dabbed that close on the off side and set off for the single, Raina ran in from point and fired the throw in at the bowler's end, Mongia didn't collect it properly but the ball bounced off his hands to hit the stumps and Martyn was just short 97/4
View dismissal A Symonds lbw b Mongia 2 12 13 0 0 15.38
24.3 Mongia strikes with his third ball! That pitched in line, went straight through with the arm, Symonds played for turn and got hit dead in front, Asad Rauf took his time and eventually raised the finger 97/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 13 25 20 1 0 65.00
31.3 this time Harbhajan finds the edge much to Dravid's delight! That drifted into Hussey and he closed the face of the bat a bit too early, the ball spun away from him and took the outside edge to first slip where Dravid took a waist-high catch 117/6
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Dhoni b Singh 46 74 63 1 4 73.01
44.4 caught! Dragged in a little short, Haddin looks for the pull but gets hurried into the shot, his feet didnt really go anywhere either and he ends up slogging that straight up in the air for Dhoni to take a few steps forward and to his right and pouch the catch, Haddin's crucial innings comes to an end 194/7
View dismissal GB Hogg run out (Singh) 38 59 49 2 1 77.55
46.6 Singh to Lee, run out! Full on the stumps, in the slot, Lee makes room and crunches that straight back down the ground, RP sticks his left hand out in the follow-through and gets a finger to it, ball ricochets onto the stumps and Hogg is well out of his crease and has to go, an unfortunate end to a good innings 208/8
View dismissal B Lee c Sehwag b Singh 7 18 8 0 0 87.50
48.1 last man down! Fired in quickly on a good length around middle stump, Lee has a heave at it but doesn't time it cleanly and ends up hitting it straight down Sehwag's throat at deep square leg, Australia are bowled out inside 50 overs for 213 213/10
View dismissal SR Clark b Agarkar 2 2 3 0 0 66.66
47.5 clean bowled! Fuller and straight on the stump, Clark just stands and has a swipe across the line, misses everything and the ball crashes into middle stump, a typical you-miss-I-hit dismissal, Australia are nine down 213/9
