2 November 2009 - day/night match (50-over match)
  Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson c †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 49 86 52 6 0 94.23
18.1 the bowling change works! He tosses it up outside off and there's a bit of extra bounce on this one, a half-hearted dab finds the outside edge and Dhoni and gang know it, Watson walks back for a very decent 49 88/2
View dismissal SE Marsh lbw b Nehra 5 33 23 0 0 21.73
7.4 no doubts about that! That was a vicious inswinger screeching towards the pads on a full length, Marsh had to really hurry at the crease to whip it to the on side but he was beaten for pace, the ball strikes the base of the pad and Nehra knows he's got him 24/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* run out (Jadeja) 52 79 59 5 1 88.13
26.5 from Harbhajan Singh, brilliant work by Jadeja! Ponting shuffles and clips it behind square on the on side, one of the fielders (I think Raina) gives the chase but allows Jadeja to gather it as he runs forward from deep square leg, a direct hit at the keeper's end sent Ponting back and it was obvious. Ponting was casual with the first run and he hesitated a bit before taking the second run and that led to his undoing 123/3
View dismissal CL White run out (Nehra) 62 101 71 3 1 87.32
44.5 Nehra to Johnson, but this is not slow, full, and no room, he drives it to the right of Nehra, who stretches and fields, finds White backing up too far and he knocks out the stumps to take the big wicket of White 226/6
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Sharma b Yuvraj Singh 40 44 41 2 1 97.56
38.1 and the golden arm strikes for MSD, Hussey looks for his favourite heave-pull, but this is perhaps a touch too full, hence he is hurried into the shot and hits it straight to Ishant Sharma at deep midwicket 196/4
View dismissal MC Henriques st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 6 13 13 0 0 46.15
42.4 poor shot from Henriques, an almighty slog sweep, misses the topspinner by a week, and has dragged his foot outside - Dhoni is quick to disturb the stumps 217/5
View dismissal MG Johnson b Nehra 8 17 15 0 0 53.33
46.1 bowled him, on target again, fuller than good length, straight, and Johnson looks to make room and run it down to third man, he misses it and the middle stump accepts it 236/7
View dismissal GA Manou run out (Kumar) 7 12 6 0 0 116.66
47.1 Kumar to Hauritz, well Prakash, Manou is indeed a dead man now in the context of this innings, another run-out here. The slower ball is hit back to Praveen, and Manou is eager to get to strike and has backed up almost half way, and it's an easy direct hit for PK who has all the time in the world to aim and hit 241/8
NM Hauritz not out 9 15 11 0 0 81.81
View dismissal PM Siddle c Jadeja b Nehra 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
48.4 Nehra gets one more, smart slower ball, Siddle makes room and gets another leading edge, easy catch for Jadeja at cover-point 247/9
View dismissal DE Bollinger run out (Yuvraj Singh/Kumar) 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 Kumar to Hauritz, the first bit of ordinary fielding is compensated for immediately, Hauritz makes room but manages a limp loft to extra cover, where Yuvraj drops a dolly. Hauritz, meanwhile, wants two, and Yuvraj's throw is accurate, and Praveen runs out Bollinger, the fourth run-out of the innings 250/10

  India innings (target: 251 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal V Sehwag c Watson b Bollinger 30 30 19 7 0 157.89
6.5 soft dismissal in the end, Bollinger wouldn't have expected a wicket with this half volley outside off, Sehwag turned the face of the bat at the point of contact and hence ended up splicing it to Watson who pedaled backwards a few paces at mid-off. Nine times out of 10 Sehwag would have cleared that fielder, not this time 40/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Hauritz 40 86 68 6 0 58.82
18.5 we won't see 17,000 runs today, tosses it up on middle and gets it to turn in, Tendulkar tries to work it with the turn but the ball clips the pads, it wasn't really adjacent to the stumps but umpire de Silva was convinced. Not a very straightforward lbw and I want to see what Hawkeye has to show on that 94/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †Manou b Bollinger 10 32 16 1 0 62.50
14.3 poor shot, Bollinger angles it outside off and cramps Kohli for a bit if room as he shapes to cut it square on the off side, he ends up getting a tame edge to the keeper 78/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh run out (Ponting) 12 41 21 0 0 57.14
23.2 Henriques to Dhoni, yet another direct hit, he taps it down to short cover and challenges the fielder, Ponting gathers and fires a sideways throw at the stumps, Yuvraj is short of his ground and everyone knows it, the third umpire takes a look 113/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Manou b Bollinger 26 58 46 2 0 56.52
31.2 Gone! It was the strangler down the leg side. It bounced outside leg and Dhoni tried to glance it but got a thin feather through to the keeper. And he walked. How vital is this? 145/5
View dismissal SK Raina b Hauritz 17 46 30 0 0 56.66
34.2 bowled him!! Hauritz draws Raina forward with his length, pitches on middle and turns past Raina's timid prod to hit off stump, massive blow and Australia are on their way here 156/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (Ponting/†Manou) 7 33 21 1 0 33.33
38.4 from Hauritz, a massive mix-up and Jadeja's gone! Jadeja pushes the ball quite firmly towards cover and calls Harbhajan for a non-existent single, especially since it's Ponting swooping on the ball. Jadeja keeps going and it's too late by the time he realises Harbhajan isn't coming, Ponting throws the ball to Manou who breaks the stumps with Jadeja yards short 177/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c & b Watson 31 33 25 5 1 124.00
42.1 caught and bowled! Watson delivers a full ball, Harbhajan tries to hit it straight but is through the shot too early, he hits it to Watson's right and the bowler takes a smart reflex catch, that's the end of Harbhajan feisty challenge 204/8
View dismissal P Kumar c †Manou b Watson 16 29 19 3 0 84.21
44.4 edged and taken! Praveen is caught on the crease by a short of a length delivery, he gets a thick edge and Manou snaps it up, Praveen angled his bat and it nearly went off the face 217/9
View dismissal A Nehra c Hauritz b Watson 7 21 8 1 0 87.50
46.4 that's the end of the game! Nehra tries to clear the boundary but skies the ball high in the air towards long-on where Hauritz pedals backwards and holds a well-judged catch 226/10
