India v Australia

Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200


Lee to Sehwag, OUT, and he's gone! Lee strikes, rapping a leaden-footed Sehwag on the crease, he didn't move his feet at all, bat coming down way too late as the ball pitches on a length and strikes him on the front pad in front of middle and leg, Lee is off in celebration and Aleem Dar raises the finger

V Sehwag lbw b Lee 1 (10m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 5/1   G Gambhir 4* (11b 1x4)   B Lee 1.1-0-4-1


Johnson to Dravid, OUT, edged and gone! Dravid perishes to a wide delivery, 149ks, chasing it with a loose drive away from the body and the thick edge is neatly gobbled up by Hayden at first slip

R Dravid c Hayden b Johnson 11 (36m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.48

India 27/2   G Gambhir 15* (31b 2x4)   MG Johnson 0.4-0-5-1


Johnson to Tendulkar, OUT, gone, on the brink of tea! Johnson removes Tendulkar, persisting with the delivery that angles away, and the batsman pays the price for hanging his bat outside off stump as Haddin dives and collects the thick outside edge, a loose shot after a subdued period from Tendulkar

SR Tendulkar c †Haddin b Johnson 68 (188m 126b 11x4 0x6) SR: 53.96

India 157/3   G Gambhir 67* (155b 8x4)   MG Johnson 12.5-1-43-2


Watson to Gambhir, OUT, hello, whats this, a wicket? Watson gets Gambhir playing a tired shot, a nothing poke at an innocuous delivery, trying to steer it away towards third man but succeeding in only inside-edging back onto the top of his stumps, Laxman walks down to shake his hand, as do a couple Australians, because what an innings its been, 206 to Gambhir, good stuff to watch

G Gambhir b Watson 206 (550m 380b 26x4 1x6) SR: 54.21

India 435/4   VVS Laxman 130* (211b 13x4)   SR Watson 14-4-42-1


Katich to Ganguly, OUT, how about that now? Ganguly goes for cheap, driving on the up to Ponting at short cover, who dives forward and cups it low above the turf to give Katich a wicket

SC Ganguly c Ponting b Katich 5 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

India 444/5   VVS Laxman 134* (217b 13x4)   SM Katich 7.2-1-25-1


Watson to Dhoni, OUT, edged and Haddin holds one! Dhoni flirst at one outside off stump and Haddin dives to his right to hold onto the thick outside edge to end a breezy Dhoni cameo on 27

MS Dhoni c †Haddin b Watson 27 (30m 29b 4x4 1x6) SR: 93.10

India 481/6   VVS Laxman 144* (232b 15x4)   SR Watson 18.4-4-61-2


Johnson to Kumble, OUT, Johnson gets Kumble, shuffling across in an attempt to nudge the ball away to the leg side, it pitches on middle and goes away, hits his pads and Billy Bowden has a thought before raising his crooked finger, a marginal call as replays show it would have probably missed off stump

A Kumble lbw b Johnson 45 (84m 73b 7x4 0x6) SR: 61.64

India 579/7   VVS Laxman 194* (291b 21x4)   MG Johnson 29.4-4-124-3
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200
