    42.2 Rohit is gone. What a sad way to go, but that is the luck of the draw. He isn't very happy. Rahane drives a slower delivery back at Faulkner who gets a bit of his hand on it, to deflect the ball onto the leg stump. End of a splendid innings from Rohit. 255/3
    2.2 and he has to go now. What a shame, that was quite a poor delivery. Short and wide outside off from Paris, Dhawan looks to caress a cut but the extra bounce of the wicket takes the outside edge of the bat to Wade. Paris' first ODI wicket. 9/1
    23.5 what has happened there? Some hesitation and Kohli may be gone here. And he is gone. Kohli has to walk off after a fantastic innings. Against the run of play, Australia have a breakthrough. He stayed back to pummel a pull to fine leg. Richardson got around and rocketed a throw back to Wade, on the full, and Wade whipped off the bails. Kohli was found a foot short of his crease despite a dive. 134/2
    48.3 gone. Steven Smith takes the catch as Rahane falls. Back of the hand legcutter on off, Rahane comes down and swipes it in the air but the ball hangs in the air for a long time. He did not get enough distance and Smith settles under it at deep midwicket to swallow the catch 298/5
    45.6 gone. Dhoni's iffy innings ends. Slower ball, but in the slot. Dhoni belts it with a lot of power but straight down the throat of long-on. Maxwell settles under it and takes a sitter. India stuttering again 276/4
    48.5 another one goes. Pandey this time. Length delivery on middle, Pandey wanted to go through midwicket but the legcutter stopped in the wicket a touch to take the top edge of Pandey, the ball carries to long-off who takes another easy one 302/6
    49.6 excellent last over from Hastings. Just four runs off it. Yorker on off, Jadeja digs it out back to the bowler. Hastings collects and takes off the bails. 308/8
    49.3 gone. Ashwin goes now. Full delivery on off, Ashwin walks across to ramp to fine leg but the ball deviates away only to take the top edge, the ball spoons up for short third man to take. 306/7

    24.5 that's the Test world-record holder! Rahane has pulled off a blinder at long-off! This was another that Finch thought he could smoke over extra, and so he did. Except this time he had hit it in the air and gave that fielder a chance. Rahane moves swiftly to his left, eyes on the ball all the way, dives forward and grabs the ball inches from the turf. Brilliant 145/1
    29.5 hurries him, leading edge, taken by Kohli! That's the bowling leader India want, the man who can dismiss the set batsman. Marsh had set up for the clip through midwicket, but the shortish ball holds on the pitch and comes up with a bit too much height on it. He can't control the shot, he has lost his balance, he pops a high catch to short cover 166/2
    40.5 zips through and topples off! There's the danger of showing off your stumps to a fast bowler. He had hit a cut shot off a delivery on middle against Ashwin, tried to repeat that against Yadav, who bowls it on a good length and gets the ball to skid through to beat his self-inflicted and limited defences 244/3
