    4.3 there's the outside edge, and Haddin takes a neat catch tumbling to his left, excellent line, made him play the pitched up delivery just around the off stump, and Haddin did the rest, it moved just enough away after pitching to take the edge 14/1
    19.1 oh dear, Sehwag has given it away, danced down to the flighted full toss, and looked to lift with a closed face it on the leg side, big leading edge goes up vertically around short cover and is taken safely, Lyon cannot believe his luck 80/2
    28.1 Dravid is gone, taken at gully, poor stroke, reached out to a wide and full delivery, and went for the drive, Hussey takes the thick edge 100/3
    31.4 that is out, Tendulkar had gotten himself into a shell, pushes forward to defend, off the glove, on to pad, simplest of catches to short leg, standing ovation for Sachin Tendulkar as he walks off Adelaide Oval, they keep up the applause till he disappears, massive respect 110/4
    53.2 and he's fallen to his strength, whipped from off stump straight into short midwicket, not a great delivery at all, shortish, he went back and across, and went through the shot with a wristy flourish, hit it straight to that man, is that his last innings for India? 162/5
    54.6 oh well, that is the last thing India needed, last specialist batsman gets run out off the final delivery of the penultimate over of the day trying to protect the nightwatchman, unbelievable, Virat worked a length ball towards midwicket and set off, Hilfenhaus, the fast bowler, ran to the ball, threw off balance and found the stumps before Virat could find the crease with a desperate dive, comfortably out, Australia in a huddle, Virat shouts in frustration as he walks back 166/6
    58.2 there is the first of the final four, Harris gets the edge through to Haddin, good length delivery straightening on off, Ishant pokes from the crease after that bouncer previous ball and that's it 166/7
    59.5 that is the second one for the morning, Saha was eagerly getting forward, and that has consumed him, good length ball angled in, and then it changes direction to curl away, Saha went forward for a firm push, and feathered it through 170/8
    not out
    66.2 that's it for Zaheer, he tries to back away and swing another one, it was shortish and got big on him, and the thick edge looped up to short cover, Australia one wicket away from 4-0 193/9
    69.4 that's the end of that, Lyon gets his fourth, Umesh edges a flighted length delivery from the crease through to Haddin, Australia win 4-0 and India go down 0-8 in their latest two overseas Test series 201/10
