Starc to Pathan, 1 leg bye, short, skiddy, beats him for pace on the pull, but Pathan gets a leg-bye


Starc to Gambhir, FOUR, short, wide enough, and he has steered this past point. Just guided past the man. Lovely timing


Starc to Gambhir, no run, another short and wide delivery, but this time it bounces a little extra and he finds the man at point

India 15/0   MA Starc 1-0-6-0

Starc to Pathan, 1 run, pitched up, middle and leg, flicked away to deep square leg

India 29/1   MA Starc 2-0-14-0

Starc to Sharma, OUT, 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

RG Sharma b Starc 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00


Starc to Dhoni, no run, length ball outside off, left alone


Starc to Dhoni, 1 run, driven away on the up, and the sweeper-cover does really well with the bad bounce on this patchy outfield

Starc to Raina, 1 run, short, outside off, steered away, and third man keeps them down to one with a dive


Starc to Dhoni, 2 runs, Watson is everywhere. Wide length ball, Dhoni throws his hands at it, gets a thick edge past slip, third man is wide, but Watson does really well with a desperate dive to save two runs

India 78/5   MA Starc 3-0-18-1

Starc to Raina, no run, bloody good yorker. Is Wasim Akram watching and approving of it? Swinging in, on off, dug out, but back to Starc


Starc to Raina, 1 run, short and wide, gets away with it. Toe-ended to to the left of sweeper-cover, but with Ashwin there is no danger of conceding the second


Starc to Ashwin, SIX, never mind the seconds, take this six from Ashwin. He ,may not run, he can hit the ball. Bouncer, at 140ks, and he has pulled this well over midwicket


Starc to Ashwin, no run, gives him the charge, misses as he drives at a short-of-a-length delivery


Starc to Ashwin, 2 runs, Hogg could have caught this. Helped away off the hip, in the air, towards fine leg, Hogg gets around it, but doesn't run in at all. It lands on a half-volley for him


Starc to Ashwin, no run, another charge, swing and miss. This one held its line just outside off

India 124/6   MA Starc 4-0-27-1
