View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Cummins) 17 12 12 3 0 141.66
2.6 Cummins to Pathan, great footwork from Cummins. Short of a length, gets a little big on him, he drops it just off the pitch and runs. On most occasions these result in singles, but Cummins has other ideas here. he strides towards the ball, and kicks it towards the stump, dislodging the bails a second before Gambhir's bat has slid in. Top work from Cummins 21/1
View dismissal IK Pathan c White b Watson 31 48 30 2 1 103.33
10.6 83.6 mph, Watson strikes again. India might even be thankful that Pathan is out. Memories of Ravindra Jadeja's promotion all those years ago when he tried his best to hit out but just couldn't. This is full, on the pads, flicked away, straight to short midwicket 74/4
View dismissal V Kohli c Christian b Cummins 15 18 13 2 0 115.38
7.2 88.4 mph, pace has done him in. This is one of the rare instances in recent times that Kohli has been done in comprehensively by a bowler. It's the pace and bounce again. Short, close to 143ks, his weight didn't go back as he pulled, and ended up skying it towards mid-off. Christian had to run to to his right, and put a slide in to complete the catch 56/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Maxwell b Watson 8 11 10 1 0 80.00
10.1 83.3 mph, Bouncer is back. Hello. And so is Watson's golden arm. Digs this in, Yuvraj likes the drop in pace from Cummins, and he top-edges it to deep midwicket 70/3
View dismissal RG Sharma b Starc 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
11.1 85.6 mph, played all around it. Wide of the crease, slightly low arm, angled in towards top of off, Sharma just misses the line completely, the bat coming down from slips, but looking to play straight. The off stump goes for a walk. Australia on a hat-trick 74/5
View dismissal SK Raina c Maxwell b Watson 26 40 19 4 0 136.84
19.3 81.7 mph, Raina falls in search for quick runs. Wide length ball, he gets under it, but can't clear long-off. Watson hasn't bowled the best of overs, but with this wicket he has a chance to pull it all back. Decent hand from Raina, though 137/7
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Bailey b Cummins 15 21 21 2 0 71.42
15.6 89.8 mph, pressure of dot balls there. This is a wide half-volley, might even have been called wide had he not driven at it. No feet means he is reaching out, and manages just a limp hit straight to extra cover 104/6

13.3 53.8 mph, Yuvraj gets a wicket. Short of a length, Watson punches it, straight to Tiwary at short extra cover. Good for Tiwary, who finally gets to enter the field, if only as a substitute, and takes a catch immediately 133/1
