    36.1 caught! Ganguly decides enough is enough and advances down the track to Hogg. He lofts through the line but the lack of power on the stroke doesnt give him the desired distance. The other Brad, Hodge, runs across to his right from long-off and takes it easily 203/3
    24.6 stumped! Hopes bowls a slower ball down leg side, Tendulkar comes a forward a little and tries to flick, he overbalances a little and gets beaten, Gilchrist whips off the bails in a flash and Tendulkar's back foot is just short of the crease, massive wicket for Australia 140/1
    32.6 caught! Hogg gets it to turn square from middle to off, Pathan goes on the backfoot and tries to square cut it past point. Unfortunately he ends up cutting it uppishly and the ball lobs to Clarke at point 189/2
    40.3 caught in the deep! Dravid has been struggling to get going and he tries to clear the long on boundary, he doesn't get enough power behind the shot and Hodge takes a simple catch, Australia well on top now 218/5
    38.3 low full toss on middle stump, Yuvraj gets down to sweep and misses. He's struck in line with the stumps and the umpire had no hesitation in giving that out 213/4
    48.4 and that should be the match for Australia! Dhoni gets under a ball and hits it high in the air, Ponting runs back from mid-on and settles under the steepling catch, the crowds fall silent as the series all but slips away from India's reach 290/7
    48.1 caught! Uthappa walks down the pitch one too many times and tries to loft Johnson down the ground, the outside edge flies high in the air in the direction of point where Hopes moves to his right and takes a well-judged catch, Australia have taken a crucial wicket 290/6
