12.2 first breakthrough, Vinay strikes! It was a length delivery outside off to Hughes, and what does he do? Edges to Dhoni in an attempt to run it down to third man. The pressure of a maiden and his strike rate might have troubled him 68/1
    16.3 umpire raises the finger! Ishant has struck even though it struck him in front of leg and may have gone down leg. He angled it in, Finch was crammed for room on the back foot and the Indian players went up for Shamsuddin to raise his finger. It was very very close, hard to say if it was hitting or missing 82/2
    19.1 Jadeja strikes too! It was flat on middle and leg and didn't quite straighten as it struck Watson's pads on the back foot. The umpire took his time to raise his finger and Watson doesn't look happy as it was going down leg after hitting him outside leg 88/3
    36.2 another lbw, short of length ball on middle, Bailey wanted to swing that to the leg side but he misses, he was struck on the back leg, how high was that? seemed to be quite tight on first look, marginal call that, would have probably taken the bails 171/4
    not out
    36.6 short of length ball just outside off, oh my, what is going on here? a run-out after a major mix-up, Voges pushes it towards mid-on, he sets off for the single, Maxwell does too, but after taking about four steps, Voges has second thoughts and pauses, Maxwell is well out of the blocks by now, Dhawan pounces on the ball and Maxwell's only chance was if the throw missed, it didn't, and Australia are five down, Voges swings his bat in frustration 174/5
    41.1 starts with a pretty poor short ball, Haddin rightly wanted to clobber that out of the ground, can't get enough distance on that, picks out long-on, Australia lose their sixth 213/6
    not out
