Australia tour of India, 4th ODI: India v Australia at Ranchi, Oct 23, 2013
23 October 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Mohammed Shami to Finch, OUT, 140 kph, back of a length and swings in slightly upon pitching. Finch plays outside of the line and the ball goes through the gate between bat and pad to remove the dangerous opening bat. Huge wicket for India as Finch has been consistently giving solid starts to Australia throughout the series

AJ Finch b Mohammed Shami 5 (7m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 5/1   PJ Hughes 0* (1b)   Mohammed Shami 0.5-0-4-1

Mohammed Shami to Hughes, OUT, 139 kph, back of a length which rises sharply as Hughes hangs his bat, caught in mid-stride, with the ball taking the outside edge through to Dhoni who completes a fine take. Second wicket down and Shami is on a roll

PJ Hughes c †Dhoni b Mohammed Shami 11 (25m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 64.70

Australia 24/2   SR Watson 8* (7b 2x4)   Mohammed Shami 2.4-0-13-2

Mohammed Shami to Watson, OUT, 139 kph, length ball swinging in as Watson looks for the booming cover drive, but the ball jags in just enough to find the gap. What a beauty from Shami! Third wicket for him and Australia in serious trouble now

SR Watson b Mohammed Shami 14 (29m 19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

Australia 32/3   GJ Bailey 0* (2b)   Mohammed Shami 4-0-20-3

Ashwin to Voges, OUT, 90 kph, quicker delivery on middle and leg which Voges gets on one knee to paddle round the corner, but misses the ball. The ball thuds into the front pad, and Ashwin goes up instantly, with the umpire confirming the decision. Big wicket for India as they look to take out the big guns early in hopes of keeping the chase minimal

AC Voges lbw b Ashwin 7 (27m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

Australia 71/4   GJ Bailey 28* (25b 2x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 1.3-0-9-1

Vinay Kumar to Bailey, OUT, 124 kph, and Bailey will not go on to score a century as he top-edges this short delivery to deep midwicket, where Rohit Sharma takes a safe catch to remove the Australian captain. Unfortunate end to what has been a stand out innings. An innings that truly put Australia back in the driver's seat

GJ Bailey c Sharma b Vinay Kumar 98 (122m 94b 7x4 3x6) SR: 104.25

Australia 224/5   GJ Maxwell 81* (67b 5x4 4x6)   R Vinay Kumar 6.1-0-40-1

Jadeja to Haddin, OUT, pulls out the straighter one which pitches on a length on middle and off, with Haddin covering for the spin. Jaddu strikes and India trying to ebb away at the momentum gained by Australia

BJ Haddin b Jadeja 3 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 232/6   GJ Maxwell 86* (71b 6x4 4x6)   RA Jadeja 5.3-0-32-1

Vinay Kumar to Maxwell, OUT, 127 kph, and it looks as if Maxwell will not get a maiden century as a fuller length delivery on middle jags just a bit in and hits under the knee roll. Looked adjacent the moment it struck, and Richard Kettleborough confirms the decision. But when the replay is looked at for a front-foot no-ball, it appears Vinay has just got some part of his foot behind the line. Almost touch and go there

GJ Maxwell lbw b Vinay Kumar 92 (95m 77b 6x4 5x6) SR: 119.48

Australia 238/7   JP Faulkner 0* (3b)   R Vinay Kumar 8-0-52-2

Ashwin to Johnson, OUT, this time fires in the quicker one as Johnson advances down the track, but misses the ball entirely with his slog, with Dhoni quick on his feet to stump the left hand fast bowler

MG Johnson st †Dhoni b Ashwin 25 (25m 31b 1x4 1x6) SR: 80.64

Australia 281/8   JP Faulkner 16* (25b 1x4)   R Ashwin 8.5-0-55-2
