Mishra to Katich, OUT, bowled em! There's the breakthrough, Katich undone by Mishra's flight, that was tossed up into the rough, luring him into another flick from outside off stump, except he misses and the ball sneaks back through the gap to disturb the furniture, middle stump knocked off its place

SM Katich b Mishra 64 (152m 116b 10x4 0x6) SR: 55.17

Australia 123/1   ML Hayden 48* (91b 8x4 1x6)   A Mishra 6.1-0-29-1

Sehwag to Hayden, OUT, and Sehwag gets his revenge very next ball! He's looked the most dangerous today and he hits Hayden just above the knee roll in front of the stumps, turning the ball back in as the batsman shuffles across to try and turn it fine, Sehwag belts out the appeal and on the third one Bowden raises his crooked finger

ML Hayden lbw b Sehwag 83 (247m 154b 13x4 1x6) SR: 53.89

Australia 202/2   RT Ponting 40* (79b 7x4)   V Sehwag 7.2-1-30-1

Sehwag to Ponting, OUT, bowled him, and what turn! Sehwag strikes, luring Ponting forward on the drive, shaping to work it to the on side, the ball turns in and beats everything, he came out of his crease and swung wildly and has to pay the price for an indifferent choice of stroke

RT Ponting b Sehwag 87 (224m 165b 14x4 0x6) SR: 52.72

Australia 284/3   MEK Hussey 32* (85b 5x4)   V Sehwag 12.4-2-38-2

Sehwag to Hussey, OUT, another one falls to Sehwag! Sehwag tweaks his fingers on that one, getting it to flight, pitch on middle and off and turn sharply past the bat to knock back off stump

MEK Hussey b Sehwag 53 (187m 146b 7x4 0x6) SR: 36.30

Australia 326/4   MJ Clarke 17* (37b 1x4)   V Sehwag 21-4-59-3

Sehwag to Watson, OUT, bowled em! Sehwag gets into the action again, pitching a gem of a turner outside off stump, Watson walks across his stumps and looks on in shock as the ball turns sharply and knocks back his leg stick, what turn from those magic fingers and thats Sehwag's best figures

SR Watson b Sehwag 36 (84m 62b 8x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

Australia 399/5   MJ Clarke 46* (98b 3x4 1x6)   V Sehwag 25.1-7-66-4

Kumble to Haddin, OUT, a wicket for Kumble, some 85 overs since his last one! Tosses it up on a length, Haddin comes dancing out and drives with a sizable gap, the ball sneaks on through and Dhoni completes an easy stumping, a real silly shot and Australia are six down

BJ Haddin st †Dhoni b Kumble 17 (32m 35b 1x4 1x6) SR: 48.57

Australia 426/6   MJ Clarke 55* (121b 4x4 1x6)   A Kumble 23.5-5-66-1

Sehwag to White, OUT, and he stays on 44, bowled going for another sweep across the line! Sehwag gets his fifth wicket, the first time ever, rewarded for a tidy line and White's poor stroke draws and inside edge that rolls onto the base of the stumps

CL White b Sehwag 44 (120m 95b 5x4 1x6) SR: 46.31

Australia 532/7   MJ Clarke 97* (212b 6x4 1x6)   V Sehwag 38.5-9-98-5

Kumble to Lee, OUT, Kumble gets a second, Lee goes lbw! Tossed up on the stumps, drifting and pitching on middle and leg, Lee goes to sweep and misses, struck on the knee roll, they all go up and Bowden agrees, but replays show the ball going over the top of leg stump

B Lee lbw b Kumble 8 (47m 47b 0x4 0x6) SR: 17.02

Australia 555/8   MJ Clarke 110* (244b 6x4 1x6)   A Kumble 41.4-8-104-2

Mishra to Clarke, OUT, and finally India manage to hold onto one! Mishra tosses it up invitingly, Clarke dances down and heaves at it, aiming to go straighter, the ball goes over extra cover and settles in Zaheer's palms a few feet away from the boundary, and thats the first catch of the innings

MJ Clarke c Khan b Mishra 112 (357m 253b 6x4 1x6) SR: 44.26

Australia 567/9   MG Johnson 6* (6b)   A Mishra 46.1-12-138-2

Kumble to Johnson, OUT, chuck that, says Kumble, I'll take it! Kumble finishes the innings with a good return catch, running across towards the off side and taking it with both hands, despite the left one in pain, after Johnson swings a top-edged slog sweep miles up in the air

MG Johnson c & b Kumble 15 (22m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 125.00
