    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
