112.2

Johnson to Sharma, no run, starts wide of off stump, just fuller than good length, this one keeps low, beats Ishant, and bounces well in front of Haddin who collects it eventually in front of his chest

112.3

Johnson to Sharma, no run, same length, but this time the bounce is true, and Ishant withdraws from the shot

112.4

Johnson to Sharma, no run, fuller, but wastes one more delivery by bowling it well wide

112.5

Johnson to Sharma, no run, but still bowling wide of off stump, and Ishant lets it go

112.6

Johnson to Sharma, 1 run, on the stumps, the first time Johnson has made Ishant play, and he does it pretty well, turning it to wide of square leg, and taking a single. Zaheer clearly trusts his No. 11, as he has taken a single off the last ball

India 345/9   I Sharma 1* (5b)
113.1

Watson to Sharma, no run, pitches outside off, on a length, and seams in, beats the bat, and passes very close to the off stump

113.2

Watson to Sharma, no run, there's the late inswinger, on target, but Ishant does well to keep it out, plays it to Ponting at midwicket, who knocks out the stumps at non-striker's end, and has an exchange with Zaheer that looked amusing

113.3

Watson to Sharma, no run, swinging in, but going down the leg side, and Ishant doesn't have to do much

113.4

Watson to Sharma, no run, dug in this time, rises up chest-high for a normal batsman, but Ishant is tall and keeps it down easily

113.5

Watson to Sharma, FOUR, expertly edged again, Aussies will be frustrated, full, holding its line this time, as opposed to the inwards movement, gets an edge, that goes between Haddin and Hayden, what's more all along the ground. Idea shot!

113.6

Watson to Sharma, no run, full, straight, on the stumps, played back to Watson

India 349/9   I Sharma 5* (11b 1x4)
114.2

Johnson to Sharma, no run, another wasted delivery, short, and way down the leg side

114.3

Johnson to Sharma, no run, waste of effort again, wide, short, rising, but the only player troubled is Haddin because of the extra bounce; Ishant doesn't even bother to play

114.4

Johnson to Sharma, no run, wide again, left alone, ordinary bowling, that said, he might bowl one on target and get his man next ball

114.5

Johnson to Sharma, 1 leg bye, angled into the hip, and looks to play into the leg side, but misses and gets a single off the pad

India 351/9   I Sharma 5* (15b 1x4)
115.1

Watson to Sharma, 4 leg byes, nice bouncer, gets into Ishant's face, but Ishant still manages to get his helmet onto it, and get four leg-byes. That's 50 extras in the innings

115.2

Watson to Sharma, no run, another bouncer, but ill directed, and Ishant ducks easily

115.3

Watson to Sharma, no run, that was the ball, full, swinging in, but Ishant is down in time, and plays it towards mid-on

115.4

Watson to Sharma, no run, another accurate delivery, length ball, seaming in towards off stump, and kept out by Ishant

115.5

Watson to Sharma, no run, short, into the ribs, Ishant does well to keep it out. But where is the short leg?

115.6

Watson to Sharma, no run, wide, left alone, bounces well in front of Haddin who haddin't a chance of collecting it cleanly. But the batsmen choose not to run off the misfield

India 355/9   I Sharma 5* (21b 1x4)
116.6

Clarke to Sharma, no run, angled down the leg side again, and Ishant has not trouble keeping it out

India 358/9   I Sharma 5* (22b 1x4)
117.3

Watson to Sharma, no run, on the target again, keeping low a bit, Ishant bends down low, and plays it straight back, Watson is testing the batsmen consistently

117.4

Watson to Sharma, no run, wide for a change, and Ishant lets that one go, and it bounces well in front of Haddin who does well again

117.5

Watson to Sharma, 1 run, good line again, just short of length around off stump, holding its line, taking the edge, and as usual going all along the ground to thirdman
