    2.3 and RP strikes! Huge bounce outside off, Jaques tries to square cut off the back foot and sends a huge nick instead through to Dhoni who pouches a straightforward catch at hip height 0/1
    8.4 another wicket for RP! A great catch at first slip, after Hayden is squared up, short of a length, and Tendulkar snaps well to his right - possibly should have been the keeper's, then 27/2
    29.5 Harbhajan Singh gets Ponting again, he bowls the straighter one on off and middle stump, Ponting goes back and tries to work it on the leg side, he gets a massive inside edge on to the pad in front of middle stump but umpire Benson raises the finger this time 119/3
    30.1 RP gets his third! He persists with the line just outside off stump, angling into Hussey and then straightening, Hussey plays it off the back foot and opens the face of the bat, the ball takes the edge and goes towards first slip where Tendulkar takes a low catch 119/4
    31.4 now that is plumb, absolutely plumb, Harbhajan Singh tosses the ball superbly on off stump, what was Clarke thinking when he moved forward and offered no shot, the ball hit the pad in front of off and middle stump and umpire Benson's finger goes up in a flash 121/5

    34.5 Tendulkar picks up his third catch! RP draws Gilchrist forward with his length and angle into the left-hander, the ball straightens off the pitch and takes the outside edge of Gilchrist's forward push, the edge flies low to first slip, it was dipping and Tendulkar had to dive forward to take the catch 134/6
    71.1 caught! Kumble looks up at the sky in relief, Hogg tries to force the ball through the off side off the back foot, the ball bounces a bit more and takes the outside edge which flies towards first slip where Dravid remains alert despite all the runs that have flowed 307/7

    102.5 got him this time, the change has worked. A big step forward, the ball cut in from outside off and hit him on the pad 421/8
    110.6 gone this time, going with the spin and aiming for the pull shot six, picking out the man at deep midwicket instead and the end of a tidy cameo 461/9
    112.3 nipped back in from the off stump and was hitting leg stump and Umpire Bucknor brings up the finger 463/10

    6.4 bowled him! That was sheer pace from Brett Lee, 146.7 kph. The yorker angled into Jaffer before swinging a shade away from the bat and crashing into the base of off stump, Jaffer was beaten for pace and the outswing made that virtually unplayable, Lee planned that well - following up several short balls with the yorker 8/1
    52.6 this time he's edged it and it's carried comfortably, short and wide outside off stump, Dravid went on the back foot and played away from his body, the edge carried to Hayden who took an easy catch at first slip, Dravid goes soon after reaching his fifty 183/2
    53.6 gone! Hogg picks up a huge wicket! He tossed it up superbly outside off stump, drawing Laxman forward into the drive, it was the wrong one and Laxman hit it in the air towards Hussey at short cover who pouched it gleefully 185/3

    77.6 round the wicket and he's gone, Ganguly coming out to drive off the legs and holing out to mid-off, a soft dismissal, hardly going for it 293/4
    86.5 plumb as you like that one, low and straight, trapping him on the back foot, Hawk Eye reckons that would have taken off stump about two-thirds up 321/5
    90.6 and he's edged the extra ball! Lee pitches the ball on a good length outside off stump, Dhoni hardly moves his feet as he pushes at the ball, the thick edge flies through to Gilchrist who takes it comfortably to register his 400th dismissal in Tests, he's the second wicketkeeper after Boucher to reach that landmark 330/6
    92.5 Gilchrist takes another one! Kumble moves back and wafts at one that he could have let go past the off stump, he gets a healthy edge and Gilchrist takes no 401, he's having a much better day today 345/7
    122.1 Harbhajan's helpful innings with a push forward which takes the outside edge and flies on to gully 474/8
    129.3 Clark picks up his first wicket! He pitched it on a good length outside off and angled it into the right-hander, RP drove away from his body and the thick outside edge flew towards Gilchrist who took a comfortable catch 501/9
    138.2 Lee gets his fifth! He bowls another short ball right at Ishant's body, he fends at it with the bat well in front of the body, the ball hits the face of the bat and lobs up towards Lee who takes a comfortable catch 532/10

    25.1 swept up hard and square to Yuvraj who takes a tidy catch a way inside the rope to bring up Kumble's 100th wicket against Australia 85/1
    70.4 caught! Hayden gets into position for the reverse sweep and slaps it in the air, he played the shot effectively when there was no fielder at point but Kumble's got Jaffer there now, he takes a comfortable catch at head height 250/3
    26.4 Harbhajan gets Ponting out...again, into the rough outside his off stump and he pops up a simple catch on the off-side. Have you seen a celebration like it, Harbhajan runs about 50 metres holding his index finger aloft, then does two half-commando rolls to celebrate 90/2

    70.5 and he's gone first ball! Clarke goes back to a googly and tries to cut first up, he gets a thick outside edge which flies straight to Dravid at first slip, he took the catch comfortably but Clarke waited for a long time before deciding to walk back, Kumble isn't pleased about it 250/4
    104.1 outside off, goes hard at it with the drive, but gets a thick snick and Dhoni takes a good diving catch to his right 378/5
    105.4 full toss, Gilchrist throws the hands at it towards long-on where Yuvraj is pushed on to his back with the force but manages to take a good catch 393/6
    106.1 over the wicket, flays hard away from the body and a big nick goes to first slip 395/7

    33.1 oh dear, looks like there's been another questionable decision there, Dravid given out caught behind when he padded up to it outside off, the bat behind his pad and nowhere near the ball 115/4
    0.5 Jaffer goes! Lee strikes with his fifth ball, another good delivery, short, and Jaffer pushes forward, snapped up by Clarke at third slip, taking the catch at stomach height 3/1
    11.5 he's got him! After a couple of deliveries seamed away from Laxman, Clark gets one to nip back into the right-hander, Laxman was caught on the back foot, the ball kept a little low as well and thudded into the back pad around the knee roll in front of middle stump, that's pretty plumb and Bucknor gives Clark his first top-order wicket of the match 34/2
    17.4 bowled him! Off the inside edge! Clark pitches it on a good length outside off stump, it angled into Tendulkar who moved forward and began to play at it before deciding he wanted to pull his bat out of the way, he couldn't do it in time and the ball ricochets into leg stump off the inside edge, that's the third time on the tour that Tendulkar has played on 54/3
    40.2 huge appeals as Clarke is adamant he caught the ball low in front of him at second slip 137/6
    33.4 a genuine edge this time! Yuvraj squared behind the ball as it pitched on off and moved away from him, the edge through and he was walking before the finger even went up 115/5
    61.2 turns back a long way from outside off, keeps low and hits him on the back pad, Dhoni not offering a shot, shuffling over 185/7

    70.1 a fizzer outside off, bounced off the shoulder of the bat and popped up towards the slips 210/8
    70.2 good delivery, pitched on off, straightened, and would have gone on to clip the top of the stumps 210/9
    70.5 Clarke has done it! Ishant pops to first slip off the edge of the bat and that indeed is a famous victory. You have to feel for Kumble, though, who held on for so long in a solid knock 210/10
