Jadeja to Warner, OUT, what a catch from Jadeja. This is such a weird wicket. The little bit of luck India needed. A full toss from Jadeja, Warner should be hitting this for four, but ends up slicing this back at good pace. The thing about this catch is, after you bowl such a fullie you are looking at which part of the ground is this being dispatched to. Jadeja, though, is alert and pouches this

DA Warner c & b Jadeja 19 (45m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.07

Australia 50/1   MT Renshaw 29* (32b 6x4)   RA Jadeja 0.4-0-5-1

Yadav to Renshaw, OUT, as in Pune, Umesh produces a breakthrough after a good start from Australia. Renshaw has played a poor shot twice in a row. Almost slips catching practice here. Length ball outside off, holds its line with the shine, which is away from Renshaw. He just opens the face, and Kohli hangs on to one at first slip

MT Renshaw c Kohli b Yadav 44 (89m 69b 7x4 0x6) SR: 63.76

Australia 80/2   SPD Smith 15* (40b 2x4)   UT Yadav 5.3-0-25-1

Ashwin to Marsh, OUT, big big shout for bat-pad, not given and India have reviewed it immediately. Good drift on this, making Marsh play around his front pad. The ball pitches middle and leg, the drift making him play not under his eye. The ball turns but only a touch, and straightens to take the inside edge. It flies off the bad, and Pujara dives to his left to take a sharp catch. Really good offspin bowling, really good catch, and a really good review

SE Marsh c Pujara b Ashwin 2 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 89/3   SPD Smith 21* (48b 2x4)   R Ashwin 9.1-1-23-1

Yadav to Handscomb, OUT, Umesh produces a wicket. Full late-swinging yorker. Handscomb is hit on the toe, and he walks off once given. The bat of Handscomb is coming down the right line, but he fails to get the front foot out of the line in time. This is unlike Smith who doesn't get his front foot in the way to avoid these lbws. Once again, after looking good, Handscomb fails to make another innings count. Top bowling from Umesh

PSP Handscomb lbw b Yadav 19 (67m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.42

Australia 140/4   SPD Smith 50* (104b 6x4)   UT Yadav 10.2-1-44-2

Jadeja to Maxwell, OUT, and Maxwell falls soon after getting to a hundred. And it's that man Jadeja again. Jadeja this morning: 20 balls, no runs, and now a wicket of the centurion. This is short of a length, Maxwell shapes up for the punch, but there is a puff of dust where it pitches before it turns away to take the edge. Good catch by Saha

GJ Maxwell c †Saha b Jadeja 104 (245m 185b 9x4 2x6) SR: 56.21

Australia 331/5   SPD Smith 126* (275b 14x4)   RA Jadeja 33.2-6-80-2

Jadeja to Wade, OUT, Jadeja has another wicket. He is keeping India alive single-handedly. Jadeja keeps hitting the rough on a length, and this one explodes from the pitch to go straight on as opposed to turning as expected. Wade edges this to be caught by Saha

MS Wade c †Saha b Jadeja 37 (58m 50b 6x4 0x6) SR: 74.00

Australia 395/6   SPD Smith 148* (311b 16x4)   RA Jadeja 40.4-7-103-3

Jadeja to Cummins, OUT, what a beauty from Jadeja. This is sensational bowling. A left-arm bowler's dream ball, but this will worry India too. This is on a length, on middle and leg, drawing a forward-defensive from Cummins. The ball then turns away to beat the outside edge and hit the top of off. No puff of dust here

PJ Cummins b Jadeja 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 395/7   SPD Smith 148* (311b 16x4)   RA Jadeja 41-7-103-4

Yadav to O'Keefe, OUT, he has helped it along to fine leg. O'Keefe is crossed with himself because he has middled this pull. Short, into the ribs, and he pulls it up and over. Straight to fine leg

SNJ O'Keefe c Vijay b Yadav 25 (59m 71b 5x4 0x6) SR: 35.21

Australia 446/8   SPD Smith 174* (351b 17x4)   UT Yadav 29.3-3-105-3

Jadeja to Lyon, OUT, Jadeja has a five-for. Lovely catch by silly point. Jadeja bowls slow in the air, Lyon defends off the front foot, the ball bounces extra and hits his bat high. Nair is alert to this catch off the middle of the bat

NM Lyon c Nair b Jadeja 1 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Australia 449/9   SPD Smith 176* (354b 17x4)   RA Jadeja 49-8-123-5

Jadeja to Smith, 1 run, OUT, full, on the pads, and Jadeja seems to have managed a run-out here. Let's make this five plus one for Jadeja. Dug out slightly wide of short fine leg. Rahul is a little slow, Smith wants to steal the second. The throw is off target, but Jadeja moves away from his station, collects the throw up the pitch, and with his back to the stumps he back-flicks onto the stumps

JR Hazlewood run out 0 (10m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 451/10   SPD Smith 178* (361b 17x4)   RA Jadeja 49.3-8-124-5
