    1.2 Shami strikes! Pitched it on length on middle and was heading towards the stumps as it hit Finch's pads in front of leg. The umpire's finger went up immediately but not sure if that would have hit the stumps for sure 7/1
    12.1 strikes first ball! Pitched it full on the pads, Hughes turned it to midwicket with the wrists and it's taken easily by Yuvraj out there. Dhoni almost did a 180 split by the way 64/2
    16.5 and Haddin's scratchy innings has come to an end! Dhoni isn't sure if the bails were flicked by the ball or by his hands! But the replays show that it took the top of the off bail. Another one goes down. That hit the top of off and ricocheted on to Dhoni's grill 74/4
    15.2 what a run-out this is, confusion all over for Australia! Bailey put the ball away to deep midwicket with a heave, they weren't sure about the second but went for it, Haddin tries hard to make it in time at the non-striker's end but Bailey isn't making his ground at the keeper's end, he's watching what's happening at the other end halfway through the pitch. Vinay collects the ball as Haddin dives and throws it to Dhoni, Bailey is well out of his crease caught napping 70/3
    21.6 the leg stump has been taken out! Shami gets another one! It was a nothing shot really because Voges tried to whip it to the leg side while staying back to a length delivery, it skids in, hits his pads and then takes the stumps out. He played across the line and was probably surprised by the pace on that 132/5
    22.2 short delivery outside off and Maxwell in this mood was not going to leave it, he goes for the pull but doesn't get hold of it as the ball hits the top of the bat, it lobs towards Jadeja at deep midwicket who gobbles it up.. 138/6
    45.1 full toss gets a wicket and it's all over! It was there to be put away, Faulkner hit it a long way in the air and Dhawan ran to his right from deep midwicket to take a diving catch to finish the match 326/10
    28.2 that is the end of Watson! Jadeja hurls some words at Watson's end after the wicket, totally unnecessary! Here is what happened! It was a shorter and flatter delivery on off, the batsman went for a cut, he chops it on to Dhoni's thigh and it ricochets to lob gently for the fielder at short third man. Watson wasn't sure what happened, but he has to go. 205/7
    30.1 floated wide outside off, slower and loopy, the batsman didn't have much of an option but to go through with his shot, he aims for the sight screen, but he ends up in the big palms of Kohli at long on.. 211/8
    44.6 beat him! It was on length on off again, McKay came forward to defend but played the wrong line and it just beat the outside edge to hit the off stump. Jadeja breaks the big partnership of 115 on the last ball of his spell 326/9
