    78.3 edged and taken. Beautifully bowled that. Went over the wicket, chose a round-arm action. The ball pitches straight and so Renshaw thinks he has to play. But he doesn't really. He chases after the ball and edges the ball to second slip, where Vijay gets forward and takes a good catch. Undone by some superb bowling. But that was a really good knock. 196/7
    27.2 gets 'im this time. Kohli's bowling change works. A big blow for Australia. Nothing special about the delivery, but the line is good, the length is good. Yadav goes full, a set of stumps outside off. Warner's natural attacking tendency to get bat on ball forces him to play at that, bat away from the pad. His feet get to the pitch late too. Gets a thick inside edge which clatters into middle and leg stump. Will this open an end up? 82/1
    60.1 straight to midwicket! After all the hardwork, Smith chips his wicket away. A flat delivery outside off from Ashwin, Smith runs down to the pitch and flicks nicely but can't keep it down or find the gap. Hits it at a comfortable height to Kohli at a square midwicket, who is typically delighted. That's a big wicket. Australia lose two in succession. 149/4
    46.4 that's lucky. A fortuitous dismissal. A flat delivery down leg from Jayant, Marsh is slightly late on his sweep and misses it. The ball hits the pad and then bobbles up onto his gloves and then the back of his bat before settling in Kohli's hands at leg slip. Not a bad option from Marsh, just flawed execution. Will this induce confidence in Jayant? 119/2
    59.2 that was always coming. A flat delivery from Jadeja, Handscomb is undone by the lack of turn and the fact that he is is too far back in his crease. This is the natural variation, the non-turning delivery. Handscomb stays back and the ball skids on to beat Handscomb on the inside edge: the previous delivery should have been a signal. Struck right in front of middle and leg. Out says umpire Llong. Handscomb chats with Smith but walks off. 149/3
    67.4 absolutely dead! Flat on off, the ball that doesn't turn. Jadeja brings this one back in with a round-arm action, Marsh stays back and misses a drive and is struck plumb in front of off. The finger went up almost before the appeal. 166/5
    75.4 appeal for lbw and umpire Llong has given him. Wade seems to have moved across onto off stump and gets pinned by a skidder in front of the stumps. But this is around the wicket, so could the angle have been taking it down leg? Wade thinks so and he goes for a review. Third umpire Illingworth says no bat involved. Says umpire's call on hitting the stumps, with ball tracking only just shaving leg stump. Tough call on Wade, but he has to go. 190/6
    94.5 slog sweeeeep... but he picks out the man at deep midwicket. That's the Australian innings done, Ashwin enjoys the scalp, clapping as he watches Starc walk off. The ball was tossed up again, making the batsman think he should go for the big swipe. But it's a lot closer to middle and leg, not allowing him the leverage he wants. Simple catch at cow corner 260/10
    81.4 what a catch that is. Not seen anything better this home summer. That wasn't even really a reflex catch. Short and wide from Umesh, O'Keefe looks to hammer a cut away but the ball takes the outside edge and flies through the slip region. Until, that is, Saha dives to his right, both feet parallel to the ground, and takes a one-handed screamer. Had to leap 205/8
    81.5 and he's plumb first ball. Australia have two wickets in hand, two reviews left. The math adds up and so Lyon reviews. Umpire's call on impact says HawkEye. No bat. Umpire Llong's decision is upheld. Full and straight from Umesh, the ball seaming back in to strike Lyon right in front of leg. Looked even more out after he fell over 205/9

    6.5 caught behind! Typical Hazy! He can camp on a good length outside off stump for days on end, waiting for the edge. Today he doesn't have to wait long. Vijay pokes, looks back and receives confirmation that he has been done in by a beauty 26/1
    32.2 throws it away! And Rahul crumples up, clutching his left shoulder, this looks bad. Awful shot from a batsman who has looked so classy until this very moment. Comes charging out at Australia's weakest bowler and looks to heave him over long-off. But he doesn't quite get the pitch and therefore the shot skews off the outside edge. Warner rushes in from long-off, takes a simple catch and yells his head off in delight 94/4
    14.2 what a ripper! An absolute rip-snorter! This defies the Pune pitch. It's back of a length and it just takes off. Climbs up towards Pujara's chest, and as he looks to fend at the ball, moving across him, he gets the softest little glove on the ball through to Wade. Australia wanted to take out India's best batsman capable of batting time and they have 44/2
    14.4 he's sucked him in! Starc, you beauty. The most in-form batsman in the world gone second ball. And it's a terribly soft dismissal. Kohli chases after a full and wide delivery and nicks off to first slip. Simple catch. But we're waiting to see if it's a legal delivery. Has Starc kept his front foot behind the line? Yes he has. What an over from Australia's spearhead 44/3
    32.4 has he taken it at second slip? The batsman stands his ground, to be sure if it carried, so the umpires go upstairs to check. Soft signal is out. Would be a spectacular catch if Handscomb has pulled it off. And it is. Outstanding effort. More so because Rahane was looking to hit into the leg side so the fielder would only have known the ball was coming at him at the last possible moment. Dives low to his right and picks it up without the hand even touching the ground 95/5
    33.3 they are asking for a catch off the bat, then boot and to short leg. Umpire Kettleborough goes up to check with his partner at square leg. The soft signal is out. This is a quicker, but fuller delivery, so Ashwin going back is a bit off. He defends hurriedly and it bounces straight off the big toe and Handscomb has pulled off another outstanding catch, diving forward and sticking out his right hand. What an asset he is close in! Special fielder. He doesn't flinch despite being so close in. So he is always a threat 95/7
    32.6 three in the over! O'Keefe is pulling off a blinder! This is his strength. Keeping the ball there and thereabouts and on a pitch like this, where turn is available virtually from anywhere, he becomes a handful. Took a long time to get into rhythm and now look at what he's done. Good length ball, angled into middle, makes Saha poke at the ball tentatively and the outside edge hitchhikes off the keeper's gloves to Steven Smith at slip 95/6
    38.2 he has five! Who would have thought he would bring about India's downfall? And really, O'keefe hasn't done much more than plug away at a good length in line with the stumps - and that too only after lunch. This wicket though is the result of Jadeja thinking he doesn't have too much time to bat on this pitch with only Nos. 10 and 11 for company. Races down the pitch the moment he sees some flight and slogs to deep midwicket. Can't beat the fielder 101/9
    36.3 they're screaming for a stumping! Australia are already celebrating. And they have a right to, Jayant stretches too far he tries to defend a good length ball. Not sure if he should be playing those, has no hope of reaching them where they pitch. And consequently, the ball turns, rips past the outside edge. Wade collects it well and whips the bails off. Jayant's back foot is on the line and off he goes 98/8
    40.1 finishes it off with his sixth wicket! Umesh runs at the left-arm spinner and slogs against the turn, gets a thick outside edge and Smith takes a fine catch, reverse cup in front of his head to his left 105/10

    0.6 plays the wrong line and he's been given lbw. Short and sweet from the Bull. Not sure how he could have reacted to this ball, knowing this pitch is turning big. It's the orthodox offbreak, pitching on off stump, so Warner defends outside it. Only the ball goes on with the arm and pins him in front of middle 10/1
    6.6 that's gone. It's the straight one. It's always the straight one. Marsh comes forward to block, but he is doing so expecting turn. And by the time he is aware of the natural variation, he is pinned on the pad in front of middle 23/2
    74.5 that looked out and is given! Smith reviews, but I don't think this will be overturned. A flat delivery from Jadeja on off, Smith for once misreads the length, goes back and looks to pull but is beaten by the pace of that. It goes on and hits Smith in front of off. Three reds on HawkEye and a sensational innings from Smith ends. That's a terrific effort. Australia have good two magnificent contributions in two innings, O'Keefe and now Smith 246/7
    20.6 taken at leg gully. From having the ball covered one second to losing your wicket the next, this is the danger for a batsman on this pitch. Handscomb read the length as short and shifted deep in his crease to try and flick the ball through square leg, but the extra bounce does him in. 61/3
    34.1 "catch," is the cry and Ishant answers in the affirmative at long-off. Renshaw comes down the ground to a length ball on off stump and aims to slug it over long-on. But he isn't to the pitch of the ball, that means it can turn, and take off the outside half of the bat. Walks off banging his palm against his helmet, clearly disappointed, but he has provided a fantastic account of himself, struggling with an upset stomach in one of the toughest places to play cricket 113/4
    53.2 there was a noise and umpire Kettleborough gives him. Marsh walks off. There is that fuller length, close enough to the bat. Marsh gets forward and the ball spins, but not too much to beat the bat. He gets forward and gets a thin outside edge, which is well taken by Saha, who didn't even go up instantly. Jadeja gets reward for a fuller length, getting the outside edge in play. 169/5
    65.6 that is out! Full and wide outside off, Wade leans into another drive but the ball kisses the outside edge and is taken. That ball didn't move, held its line. Wade played for a hint of inward movement and that bit of hesitation does for Wade. What fine margins. Kohli nods at Wade. 204/6
    77.6 he's holed out. Another fantastic contribution from Starc. Ashwin tosses it up nicely, Starc isn't too perturbed by the fear of failure if he mis-times the ball. Gets low and swipes a ball to deep midwicket. KL Rahul came in and took a good running catch, made a simple catch look simple. 258/8
    86.6 and that's the end of the innings. O'Keefe reviews but has taken off his gloves and is heading off for some lunch. Tosses this up down leg, the ball spins away. O'Keefe has planted his front foot forward, head over the ball, tries to defend, but the ball spins away sharply and kisses the outside edge. Saha holds onto another terrific catch. So much turn, and with that angle, even first slip could have taken it. 285/10
    83.4 full, straight and given! A good length delivery on leg, the ball seams back in and hits Lyon in front of leg. There was no escaping that. Very similar to the first-inning dismissal. Was simply undone by lateral movement 279/9

    4.5 given! O'Keefe has his first and so does Australia. Vijay wants the review. This was flat and quick and straight, skids on with the arm. Strikes Vijay in front of leg. No bat. Is it clipping leg stump? That's all it needs to do. Everyone, including the officials, waiting on HawkEye. This could be sliding down. No it isn't. It's clipping the side of leg stump and India lose their first wicket and review. This is what Smith did so well, played the line of the ball. Vijay played for turn, and was beaten on the inside edge 10/1
    5.3 and Rahul's gone too. India opt for their second review. A flat delivery outside off, Rahul goes deep on the back foot and misses the ball as it turns back in. Yes, there is spin but Rahul is playing so deep that the ball doesn't have far to travel. Umpire's call on impact and two Reds. If he has played that off the front foot, he had a better chance. That's the second wicket and their second lost review. That was an appalling review considering one had already been used. 16/2
    28.5 was there an inside edge? Again, does not matter because India have lost their reviews. No bat. Pujara hit his pad with the bat, the ball then skidded on and struck Pujara in front of leg. Another delivery that skids on with the arm and an Indian batsman plays for turn. O'Keefe has double sixes now. Wow. He ain't forgetting Pune 2017 100/7
    16.2 bowled 'im. Kohli has left a straight one. Was saying it all along that Kohli was playing for turn, but the danger was the one that doesn't turn. Yes, it pitched outside off. And yes, there has been plenty of turn. But so many of O'Keefe's deliveries have not turned. This one too. Skids on and knocks back off stump. Is that the game? I don't think that was an error in judgement, it was just the wrong approach to batting against spin on this surface. 47/3
    22.3 uh oh. Yet another soft dismissal for Rahane. Tosses this up outside off, draws Rahane forward. He plays too early and the ball stops in the surface a fraction of a second, because it takes a bit of the pitch with it. Rahane chips a catch to cover. That fraction accounts for Rahane, the difference between a boundary and a wicket 77/4
    24.4 Smith chooses to review this. I thought it was out on first impression. This is very close. Pad first or bat first? Definitely pad first. Another full and flat delivery, Ashwin plays the ball late, the bat getting close to the ball behind the pad. Yes, all reds on HawkEye and Australia have another. O'Keefe takes the match ball and raises it to the crowd because he has ten in the match. Famine and feast for O'Keefe in his Test career. What an effort this has been. Three men have dominated this Test match, none more than O'Keefe 89/5
    28.3 goes through. Skids on. Hits Saha in front of leg. And umpire Kettleborough's finger goes up. Was that sliding down? Doesn't really matter because India have no reviews left. Another slider from O'Keefe, scurries on and hits Saha in front of leg. O'Keefe raises the match ball again, he has his second five-for in as many innings. Umpire's call, just clipping leg stump. That will be tea as well. 99/6
    31.4 there's No. 8 and Australia are on course for a memorable win. A flat delivery outside off, Jadeja goes back in his attempt to cut but the ball stays a touch low, doesn't spin as much as he expected. All of it results in a thick inside edge that hits off stump. A tad unlucky considering the variable bounce 102/8
    33.5 there it is. Australia complete a sensational 333-run win. Slow through the air, saw Jayant coming, dragged that length back, allowed the ball room to turn. It did, hit the glove and lobbed up for the keeper to take. The umpire's finger went up almost instantaneously. But there was no glove on that. Just pad. India don't have reviews left. 107/10
    31.6 no reviews and Ishant has to walk back now. India nine down. Gets right forward with his giant stride but Lyon's length is very good. He's allowed the ball to bounce and turn, and so it turns back in and takes Ishant's glove on its way to Warner at leg gully who won't drop that. Australia's spinners have done almost everything right. 102/9
