View dismissal V Sehwag lbw b Johnson 65 136 90 9 0 72.22
28.2 Johnson strikes for Australia! Huge wicket. Follows the bumper with a lovely indipper. Landed on a length, on the middle and it bent in a bit, Sehwag ended up driving at it outside the line and was trapped plumb in front. A very good innings comes to an end. 126/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Gilchrist b McGrath 10 46 26 2 0 38.46
9.5 he's gone! A typical McGrath special, lands on a sweet length outside off stump, on the seam, a little bit of movement to boot, and Tendulkar's caught defending on the hop, the ball kisses the edge and lands in Gilchrist's safe hands, Australia strike,McGrath wins this battle, crowd hushed 46/1
View dismissal D Mongia c Hussey b Watson 18 45 30 3 0 60.00
19.4 gone! Lands on a good length and moves away outside off stump, Mongia tries to run that fine, opens the face of the bat and plays away from his body, and all he can do is edge one into Hussey's lap at slip, Australia get another 89/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c Clarke b Lee 52 91 63 6 0 82.53
40.2 Lee gets his revenge. Although quite a tame dismissal. Full-length delivery on the middle and leg and Dravid ended up playing a nothing shot. Just shovelled it straight to Clarke at short midwicket. Big wicket for Australia. 186/4
View dismissal M Kaif b Lee 30 57 43 2 0 69.76
42.1 And the stumps fly everywhere! Inside-edge on to the stumps. Kaif falls. Lee jumps up in glee. It landed on a length, outside the off stump and came back in. Kaif had gone for a huge drive but was beaten by the nip-backer 197/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni lbw b Bracken 28 44 23 2 0 121.73

View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Raina b Sreesanth 23 40 24 4 0 95.83
8.5 great catch! Full and wide, Gilchrist throws the bat at it but can only slam that in the air to Raina at backward point, who holds onto a fine catch, that ball was travelling at some speed but the kid held onto it like a seasoned pro, falls over after he takes it and then runs to his team-mates who engulf him, thats the breakthrough India needed, Gilchrist gone! 61/1
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Mongia 50 83 46 8 0 108.69
15.5 Mongia strikes! Tossed up outside off stump, Watson goes back and tries to defend, misses and is struck marginally outside the line, but Bucknor upholds the appeal, didnt look out to me 111/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Tendulkar b Sreesanth 58 109 69 8 0 84.05
33.5 Sreesanth gets his man. But maybe too late now. Again Ponting lunges forward at a length-delivery outside the offstump, ends up pushing too hard at it as it leaves him and nicks it low to Tendulkar at first slip. SRT dived to his left to pull off a stunning catch 185/3
