    18.2 Would you believe it! Dhoni has a leg slip positioned just behind and Hughes obliges by taking a back of a length delivery which spins into him, and he eases it behind, but straight into the clutches of Raina. My feeling is that he did not see him there in the first place, and mixed with the amount of turn, ends up leading to his downfall 110/1
    27.1 flighted delivery outside off and Yuvraj is having a whale of a time as he gets Finch to go for the lofted shot, but ends up mishitting this straight up in the air, which carries to Virat Kohli, one of India's best fielders, who is waiting at long off. Big wicket for India as Finch was threatening to play a big innings 146/3
    19.1 How prophetic am I? He has taken out the Big Kahuna, with Watson lofting a fuller delivery on and around off straight into the waiting hands of Jadeja at long on 113/2
    46.3 and he holes out at deep midwicket! The shot was on though, it was a tossed up delivery on off and Bailey aimed for the stands at deep midwicket, he just doesn't get as much as he would have liked behind that and the fielder takes a simple catch right on the edge of the boundary 264/7
    31.6 back of a length outside off and the Aussies take on Yuvraj's fielding, as he swoops in towards point and fires in a throw at the striker's end which Voges, who dives in vain, is unable to get to. However, once he gets past the crease, he curls into the fetus position, as he seems to be in some pain. But as I glance over he is walking back to the dressing room as the third umpire confirms it is out. A huge cheer rings from the Pune crowd 172/4
    37.6 he has thrown it away, he tries to play a similar shot to what he played off the last delivery, but the length was slightly short, and he ends up toe-ending it straight to cover 214/5
    42.2 this one is plumb, Haddin was deep in his crease and tried to flick this flatter delivery towards the leg side, but it was pushed a bit quicker too and Haddin was beaten to be hit right in front of the middle stump. That would have gone on to hit the top of the middle 231/6
    49.2 Ishant gives a stare to the batsman! It was another wide and full delivery, and unlike the previous delivery, Faulkner gets a whole lot of bat in this one, times this one perfectly, but just hits it at catchable hight at Vinay Kumar at extra cover. The fielder times his jump and plucks it 293/8

    6.2 134 kph, pitched up and leaves Dhawan, who gets an edge on through to keeper. Faulkner, who is so pumped, goes for the high-five with Haddin, but hits him accidentally in the eye. Needless, as was that throw from Maxwell. But oh, well, Australia have picked up the first scalp. 26/1
    13.5 133 kph, back of a length and Rohit makes a feeble dab at it as he gets an outside edge, with Hughes completing a high take. Wasteful shot as Rohit was looking set for a big score. The Pune crowd stand in silence 66/2
    34.4 that's the end of Kohli! Watson, after sending a few short ones, slips in a length delivery and Kohli tries to whip this to square leg across the line. He is hit on the knee roll and that would have crashed into the leg stump. The umpire didn't waste any time. That looked plumb the moment it hit the pads. Australia on top here, excellent bowling from Watson again 166/5
    27.2 here goes Raina! He hasn't played his favourite hoick to the leg side today, but he chooses to do it now, off a length delivery outside off and he gets a thick outside edge that flies towards third man where Doherty takes a good low catch 137/3
    28.6 and short ball does him! This was quick, short of length and reared up sharply, it was 150+ kph as well and Yuvraj gets squared up and ends up edging this one to the keeper. We have seen him getting out like that in Tests before. Hughes enjoying his day as the keeper. Super delivery that one though. 147/4
    40.4 126 kph, and that just may be the final death knell as Dhoni plays inside of a delivery shaping in and gets his off stump knocked back. The wicket all of India would have prayed to stay intact.. With 109 off 56 balls, looks like Australia's record of beating India after posting 300 or more will continue for another day 196/7
    39.3 super catch by the captain at mid-on! It was a quicker short delivery outside off and Jadeja is lured into the pull, but he was not in control of that shot at all, ends up hitting it towards mid-on where Bailey runs in, dives forward and takes a good catch 192/6
    42.1 131 kph, Ashwin, who really has no choice, goes for the lofted drive over cover, but ends up finding mid off instead. 200/8
    49.4 Kumar goes aerial, but way up in the air, and Voges comes under it at mid off to complete a testing catch. 232/10
    48.4 lovely flighted delivery which beats Vinay completely as he dances down to try and hammer this over the leg side. Australia just one wicket away from ending this 230/9
