4.2

Khan to Katich, OUT, Zaheer has nailed Katich and India have a wicket here. Good variation from Zaheer, he has been moving them away most of the time, but he gets this one to duck into Katich, who is caught on the move as he shuffles across and looks to work it to the leg side. Hits him in front of off and it was crashing into middle and leg.

SM Katich lbw b Khan 6 (21m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 13/1   SR Watson 5* (16b 1x4)   Z Khan 2.2-0-7-1

41.4

Harbhajan Singh to Watson, OUT, appeal for run out and Raina has caught Ponting short of the crease. Full on leg stump and workd off the toes towards midwicket where the live-wire Raina swooped in and sent the throw back in quick time. Ponting seemed to be taking it easy after starting quickly, and Gambhir at short leg did well to get off the ball's path and it crashed into the stumps at the striker's end.

RT Ponting run out 71 (154m 124b 10x4 0x6) SR: 57.25

Australia 154/2   SR Watson 64* (123b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 9.4-0-32-0

53.6

Harbhajan Singh to Clarke, OUT, catch no. 197 for Dravid. Clarke went back to play the square cut to one that pitched outside off and spun back into the right-hander, he edged it from off stump and Dravid held on to a sharp, low chance at first slip

MJ Clarke c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 14 (47m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.89

Australia 172/3   SR Watson 68* (158b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 16-1-48-1

82.3

Khan to Hussey, OUT, Zaheer has sent Hussey back! Definite reverse swing, this time the other way - it shapes back into Hussey from outside off and defeats his forward prod. Thuds into the pads in front of middle. Was it going down the leg? We will find soon, but Hussey is on the way back. Replays suggest it would have clipped leg stump

MEK Hussey lbw b Khan 17 (104m 76b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.36

Australia 218/4   SR Watson 96* (254b 8x4)   Z Khan 12.3-2-43-2

84.3

Khan to North, OUT, Zaheer has prised out another left hander! This one ducks in from a length outside off, North let it go, rather daring call that. Zaheer thought it missed the stumps and threws his arms up in frustration. But the off bail was knocked back. No one saw it, but Dhoni did. And eventually so did Zaheer. The frown turned into a smile and North was on his way back.

MJ North b Khan 0 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 222/5   SR Watson 100* (260b 8x4)   Z Khan 13.3-2-43-3

111.1

Harbhajan Singh to Watson, OUT, caught! Harbhajan flights the ball outside off stump and gets it to bounce and turn a little into the right-hander, Watson lunges forward to defend but gets an inside edge on to pad, the ball bobs up off the pad towards short leg where Gambhir dives forward and to his right to catch it with two hand hands

SR Watson c Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 126 (461m 338b 10x4 0x6) SR: 37.27

Australia 275/6   TD Paine 25* (83b 3x4)   Harbhajan Singh 36.1-9-78-2

133.1

Khan to Johnson, OUT, the drinks do the trick! Zaheer lets out a roar after sending Johnson out with a neat delivery short of a length outside off stump. Not much movement there, Johnson was playing off the backfoot and got a thin nick as he fished away from the body. Dhoni pouches this one.

MG Johnson c †Dhoni b Khan 47 (91m 66b 5x4 3x6) SR: 71.21

Australia 357/7   TD Paine 60* (149b 9x4)   Z Khan 25.1-5-76-4

137.3

Harbhajan Singh to Hauritz, OUT, Gambhir has taken a smart catch at short leg and Hauritz is on his way. Regulation offspinner turns into Hauritz from off stump and he looks to work it off the pads with the turn. Gambhir stayed low and pocketed it, off the middle of the bat into his hands. Good anticipation and presence of mind. Harbhajan has three.

NM Hauritz c Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 9 (18m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 373/8   TD Paine 67* (154b 10x4)   Harbhajan Singh 45.3-11-112-3

150.2

Khan to Paine, OUT, now that's a catch! And Zaheer has his tenth five-wicket haul. He angled the ball across the right-hander with an upright seam, pitched on a good length in line with the stumps and got it to shape away. Paine pushed forward at it and the ball flew quickly and low off the outside edge towards second slip where Laxman dived forward and to his left to catch it moments before it hit the ground

TD Paine c Laxman b Khan 92 (294m 196b 12x4 0x6) SR: 46.93

Australia 427/9   BW Hilfenhaus 19* (37b 2x4 1x6)   Z Khan 29.2-6-94-5

151.4

Ojha to Bollinger, OUT, caught at long-on. Bollinger goes after Ojha and skies the slog towards long-on where Ishant runs in from the boundary and takes the catch as he's sliding on the grass. That looked extremely good from Ishant but replays show the ball nearly burst through his fingers. Ojha finally has a wicket in his 52nd over.

DE Bollinger c Sharma b Ojha 0 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 428/10   BW Hilfenhaus 20* (38b 2x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 51.4-16-113-1
