    3.1 Gambhir never looked in touch there and he is gone now. It landed on a good length, perhaps just back of the length, Gambhir was initially looking to get forward, then tried to press back. Too late. He ended up stabbing at it. Edge and gone! 12/1
    23 And he won't bat 50 overs today! He went for the cut but this was slightly slower and he ended up playing the shot a tad too early. He gets the edge and the ball rolls to the stumps. 113/5
    11.4 and that's the second wicket! Kohli comes forward and drives it to point. Hussey at point just has to crouch a little and take it with the fingers pointing towards the sky. Enter Yuvraj then 54/2
    14.3 The bouncer does the trick. Yuvraj got in to an awful tangle. It was around the middle stump line, Yuvraj first tried to duck, then sway and then tried to sort of play a weak upper cut, a dab.. and only manages to feather an edge. 63/3
    21.4 Dragged on! It tilted in after landing on a good length outside off, Dhoni took a step forward and then had a weak waft at it. He stabbed it off the inner edge. Clatter! 101/4
    27.3 strikes right away with the change of angle to round the stumps. Lee has been very impressive today and picks up his first wicket now. It landed full in length outside off and seamed away. Raina reached out for his on-the-up cover drive but got a thick edge. 132/6
    38.5 Out this time! Yusuf goes for the slog sweep and top edges it to Jason at deep midwicket. The crowd fall silent. 187/9
    27.5 Castled! Full and straight. It was full and fast and Harbhajan played all around it. Clatter! 136/7
    29.5 from round the stumps, full delivery just outside the off stump. Piyush goes for the off drive and edges it on to his stumps. 138/8

    44.3 short ball on the off stump. Nehra moves back a touch and pulls it to deep midwicket, straight into the hands of a waiting Krejza. So the innings comes to an end. Positive from the innings for India being the way tail rallied around 214/10

    7.5 Watson tries to heave this over mid-off but fails to clear Piyush. India's best bowler tonight Sreesanth gets the break through. It was a good-length delivery outside off and Watson tried to knife it on the up but didn't connect as well as he would have liked. Piyush moved quickly to his left to pouch a sharp catch 51/1
    21.5 Paine holes out to long-on. Paine lofted the flighted delivery to right of long-on where Munaf moved quickly to take a good catch, running along the boundary 118/2
    34.4 Stumped! Ponting perishes, going for a big slog sweep! The back foot was on the line and Dhoni broke the stumps in a flash. Again, a very quick stumping from the Indian captain. It was in the zone outside off and didn't turn in. Ponting didn't connect with the slog sweep and Dhoni did the rest. Tremendous noise emanating from the stadium, Whistling, roaring and what not. Australia seven down 166/7
    23 Just reward for some fine bowling from Piyush. It landed on the middle stump line and it turned quickly outside off. It kept a touch low as well. Clark went for the cut but got a fatal inside edge. 120/3
    28.1 the flighted legbreak around the off stump line and White tries to clear mid-on but fails. Piyush gets another wicket. He has bowled really well tonight. 138/4
    28.2 Stumped! David walks away. The umpire asks him to wait. Third umpire says that's out. It was a loverly leg break that lured David forward before it broke away sharply past the defensive poke. The back foot was in the air when Dhoni broke the stumps. Did the bails come off in time, just before the boot landed. Replays show that they did. Piyush is having quite a night here. 138/5
    30.4 Piyush is running hot here in Bangalore. A lovely teasing leg break around the off stump and Ferguson was fatally attracted to it. He went for a loose drive and edged to Kohli at first slip. The crowd roar. And roar. Ponting stands alone. 148/6
    36.1 Eight down and wobbling away. The crowd go berserk. Australia have panicked here. Some strange shot selections and some iffy batting technique. A cruel mixture. Johnson rushed down the track for a wild hit and never looked like connecting. 175/8

    36.4 Trapped! It landed on a good length, on the middle stump, from round the stumps and turned. Dead duck. It got him low on the pad in front of the middle stump line. India on the brink here. 175/9
    37.5 All over. Lee went down the track for the big hit and inside edged it to his stumps. India win by 38 runs. 176/10
