    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
