    3.3 Australia find reward for their tight lines and lengths with the new ball. Coulter-Nile puts it on a length and wide outside off, swings away further - it ended on a set of stumps outside off. Rahane throws his bat at a drive and only snicks it behind. Wade, who has been busy this afternoon, moves to his right and snags the catch. Rahane falls for 5 off 15 balls on return 11/1
    15.6 holes out to deep square leg. An ordinary shot. Stoinis has been easily picked off with short bowling. But this one is 5 kph quicker than the last ball. Rohit goes for the hook, but the ball is way outside off. It's a regulation top edge and a regulation reverse-cup for Coulter-Nile. Umpires check for no-ball, but the crowd has already begun shouting Dhoni! Dhoni! 64/4
    5.1 Kohli can't get away. Maxwell at backward point pulls off a belting one-handed catch over his head. Kohli has been dismissed for a four-ball duck. This was full and wide - wider than a set of stumps outside off again. Kohli had left his first ball. He chased the second one with a big drive. The big drive comes out again, he slices it into the air. Maxwell propels himself at backward point, sticks out his right hand, and grabs the ball, and lands. Great reflexes from Maxwell 11/2
    5.3 Is Pandey out nicking behind as well? Australia are sure they have their man and keep celebrating... but umpire Erasmus asks them to hold on. Was it a bump ball? He refers it to the TV umpire. Very, very full and swinging away so very late outside off, Pandey jams his bat down on the ground. The ball did not touch the ground, though; takes the outside edge and floats into the gloves of Wade. Clean catch. India left at 11 for 3 in 5.3. All three batsmen out flirting in the channel 11/3
    21.3 caught at midwicket. Short one at off stump. Once again, a batsman looks to drag Stoinis' short one into the leg side. Once again, slow on it. This one is bunted off the high part of the bat. An easy catch 87/5
    49.4 Dhoni forays down the track again... this time holes out to long-off. Faulkner's front foot is fine. Faulker pulled his length back, seeing Dhoni step out, on off stump. Dhoni gets it high on the bat and splices it to Warner for a head-high catch 277/7
    40.5 Zampa has his revenge. Pushed through flatter and faster on middle, 92ks, no flight at all. Pandya goes low for a slog-sweep against the break, aiming wide long-on again. All he can manage now is a top edge that swirls to short third man. Ends a crackling innings - one that has given India a fighting chance. He goes for a career-best 83 205/6

    7.6 good catch! It's a slider from Kuldeep. After the slow one that turns away from the corridor. This is straight through at the same line. Warner goes for the cut and gets a big outside edge. Dhoni takes a sharp one that nearly slides out of his gloves. A slight juggle to hold on to it. Kuldeep is ecstatic. Warner, less so. 35/4
    3.5 bowled him! Bumrah's length is tough to pick for most, let alone a debutant. He sits on the back foot. And swipes across the line on length. It's just short of good length and skids through, as it does for Bumrah. Just above knee height and into the off stump 15/1
    4.6 out the next ball! If you think Bumrah's bowling action is queer, you should see this catch! This is a length ball, on middle stump. Straightens and climbs as he looks to flick this into the leg side. It's a top edge that flies over Bumrah at short fine leg. He runs backwards in pursuit...only to realise he has overdone it. By the time it comes down, he's facing the crowd. Extraordinarily, he arches backwards, puts up a reverse-cup and follows this swerving ball to hold on. As if the ball from the crowd! Stunning 20/2
    6.4 caught behind. Offcutters, slower ball, knuckle balls. Australia have not been able to get themselves in at all. This is a knuckle ball pushed wide, back of a length. Head has plenty of room. But he's early on the shot. Swings hard and gets an outside edge that lobs harmlessly through to Dhoni - almost dipping on him - and he completes a simple take 29/3
    11.6 holes out to long-on! Tossed up wide outside off. The perfect place for someone slogging across the line. On length, it's still hittable. But it's also turning away. He gets it off the toe and straight to the fielder. Chahal holds up his arms like everything was planned. 76/5
    12.3 wrong'un. Good length outside off. Crouches early to set up for the slog sweep. But again, it's spinning away. He lifts it high towards deep midwicket and Jadeja takes it cleanly 76/6
    15.2 Wade steps down the track and flashes hard, Chahal drags his length back outside off and darts it wide outside off, well past the batsman's reach. Dhoni collects it and whips the bails off. Chepauk raises itself to a big roar again. More questions over Wade after a poor series with the bat in Bangladesh 93/7

    17.1 The asking rate has ballooned. Cummins aims to prick the balloon with a slog over midwicket, against the break. But a top edge balloons to short third man. It started on middle and turned away to claim the edge 109/8
    19.2 Heaved flat and hard to Jadhav at deep midwicket. Good length slower one at 114ks, not sure if that was a knuckle ball. Coulter-Nile can't clear the man in the deep. Rohit gives Jadhav a leaping high-five 127/9
