    6.4 132 kph, shortish delivery which Hughes tries to pull away but ends up hitting this sweetly to Virat Kohli stationed at square leg, who makes an excellent dive to his left to hold on to the chance. Excellent fielding which has resulted in the loss of an early wicket for Australia. 30/1

    11.1 86 kph, length ball pitching on middle as Ashwin, who is coming round the wicket, breaches Finch's defences as he goes for an improvised flick, but fails to get bat on it. Ball castles into the stumps, and its two down now for the Australians 45/2
    34.4 oh Shami roars as he splatter the stumps with an inducker! Watson has to go straight after getting to his 100. It was a length delivery and came back in. Watson was looking to drive it down the ground on the up, but it missed the inside edge to hit off and middle. 213/3
    49.2 Bailey's wonderful innings comes to an end in the pursuit of quick runs as he smashes this Jadeja offering right to long off, who takes a simple catch. Awesome performance from the Australia captain 344/5
    35.6 excellent catch in the deep by bhuvneshwar! Ashwin had changed the line to off, but that wasn't going to make much difference for Maxwell. He went deep in the crease spotting the shortness of length and swung his hammer aiming for the deep midwicket stand. But Bhuvneshwar keeps his composure at the boundary pulling off a well-judged one catch. He punches the air. Ashwin takes a gasp.. 224/4

    49.4 fuller length ball just outside off which Johnson gets down on one knee to slog, but finds Dhawan stationed at deep midwicket. Will the umpires check the front foot no-ball too? Looks like the umpires will have spared him the embarrassment just for now. Wickets beginning to fall in a heap, but it doesn't really matter with 346 on the board 346/6

    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
