1.4

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

1.5

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

1.6

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

3.1

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

3.2

Starc to Kohli, FOUR, and he really can't do anything wrong. A decent delivery, short of a length, outside off, and he has punched it to the right of third man for four

3.3

Starc to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, on the pads, worked away for one

3.4

Starc to Pathan, 1 run, pulled away off the front foot, gets a single to deep square leg

India 29/1   MA Starc 2-0-14-0

11.1

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

11.2

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

11.3

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

11.4

Starc to Raina, no run, length ball, on off, pushed to short cover

11.5

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

11.6

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

17.1

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

17.2

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

17.3

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

17.4

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

17.5

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

17.6

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
