    9.2 the umpire didn't get to watch the previous delivery so Finch gives him an action replay sans the inside edge. He moves well across the stumps to try to sweep an offbreak, and is beaten again. Pitches within, straightens to hit middle. Dead plumb. Not so sure about the replay that is showing it pitched outside leg. That shake right at the last moment makes it look not right 89/3
    5.1 Bumrah has the wicket. He has clearly looked like India's most impressive bowler. Just difficult to read his pace with that unorthodox action. Warner sees a short ball, looks for the pull, but it hurries on to him, and he drags it from outside off and is caught at mid-on 47/1
    8.6 Smith gets a long send-off from Kohli. Smith looks to work this to leg, gets a massive leading edge to extra cover where Kohli takes the catch and gives it to Smith. Seems to be suggesting Smith had been chirping (perhaps when batting or when Kohli was batting) 89/2
    10.6 Jadeja has got another wicket. India have Australia where they want them. Like rabbits in headlights against spin. Head has not got a loose ball so far and tries to manufacture a sweep. Misses. Looks pretty dead. The umpire has no hesitation. Replays show impact is outside off. He has got himself outside the line of off 93/4
    14.6 Pandya has his wicket. The wide line has worked. This is another wide he has ruined. Second time in this over he has gone and played a delivery that would have been called a wide. The last time he nearly got caught at deep cover, this time he finds extra cover. Yuvraj takes an overhead catch. This seems to have hurt his hands, but Yuvraj has taken it nonetheless 124/6
    13.3 Nehra takes the nervous catch. India must think they are home and dry. Watson, under pressure, goes for the big sweep, and Ashwin's bounce takes the top edge. It is a skier, and Nehra somehow manages to never look comfortable under those. At short fine leg, he makes many a heart skip a beat before pouching this 110/5
    16.1 Pandya is on a hat-trick. Slower ball, on a length, in the slot, Wade looks to go for a six but skies it. Jadeja takes it calmly at deep midwicket 129/7
    17.2 and Bumrah has come back with a replay of how he dismissed Faulkner in the ODI. Yorker, at the stumps, and Faulkner looks to sweep, and is bowled. Game, set and match 143/8
    18.2 full and straight, Richardson mows across the line, Nehra hits the off stump 149/9
    19.3 all over. The debutants combine to get Boyce out. Bumrah does him in with the slower ball, Pandya takes an easy catch at mid-off. Eventually a comfortable win for India 151/10
