    29.3 and Rohit perishes in his attempt to catch up with the rate! Finch dragged this short, but it stopped a bit on the pitch, just enough, to mess up with Rohit's attempted pull shot. He aims for the stands at deep midwicket, but gets a toe-end of the bat and that settles easily into the lap of the fielder. Finally a breakthrough for Australia 178/1

    35.6 136 kph, and its all over for Da-One. Looking to improvise a flick behind square on the leg side through fine leg, he ends up stepping out to the off side. Faulkner must have seen this coming as he releases the ball on a middle to leg stump line, which ends up castling the southpaw's wicket. So Dhawan was unable to make this century count for more, but still a fine effort considering the circumstances. Makes that the third century of the match as well. 234/2

    42.2 138 kph, short ball again as Raina struggles to get this away with a pull. Doesn't seem to be a deflection, but the umpire has signalled he is out, which is not surprising for those in the know (Raina + short ball = trouble). Will need the replays to show if that he was indeed out as it is hard to say at the moment 290/3
    42.5 143 kph, it's all over, and that too quickly. Yuvraj plays all around this swinging delivery as he leaves a gap between bat and pad to get his off stump knocked back. Goes out for a three-ball duck, and suddenly this chase has taken on new meaning. Do we suspect a twist in the tail? 290/4
