    13.3 Pandya's quick offcutter provides India with the breakthrough! Back of a length, skids in, then swerves away. A crease-bound Warner aims to punch it away through the covers, playing for the angle. Pandya beats the outside edge and hits the top of middle 70/1
    37.5 taken at deep midwicket. Finch's belligerence ends. It's full and Finch sees an opportunity to hit it over midwicket, but Finch can't get underneath the length, which means his heave goes straight and flat to Jadhav at deep midwicket, who takes it awkwardly. A white towel falls off, and Finch thinks it's the ball. But has to walk off. Fine innings from Finch, has put Australia in command 224/2
    41.6 easily taken at long-off. It's the googly outside off, Smith wanted to get closer to the ball and hit it straighter but the ball skews off the outside half and lobs to Bumrah at long-off. Looking into the sun is Bumrah, but he has his sunglasses on. Kuldeep has been a touch expensive, but has got two big wickets when they're trying to go after him. 243/3
    42.1 Maxwell gone now. Two in two for India. Australia losing their way. He shuffled right across, looking to go straight. He came running down but Chahal fires this wide outside off, so wide that Maxwell can't even get close to it. Misses it by a distance and Dhoni's hands are far too quick for Maxwell to consider going back. Chahal has him thrice in this series now, all while Maxwell has tried to take him down. Fantastic defensive bowling from India's spinners 243/4

    45.3 goes straight through , 119 kph, it's a slower ball on middle and leg, the offcutter. Head plays with an angled bat, trying to find midwicket, but that means the ball has enough room to go through his flick and hit the stumps. Middle stump is uprooted. Australia losing their way 260/5

    47.5 sensational catching from Pandey. A slower delivery outside off is hit nicely to long-off, it looks like six for the entirety of its trajectory until Pandey gets around to his right, takes a reverse-cupped catch, realises he was stepping over the boundary and threw it back up in the air. Then, he nonchalantly got back in and took the catch, no fuss, no trouble. 275/6

    23.3 Cummins pins Rahane in front! On a length and skids into off stump, 141.8ks, Rahane, jumping off the ground, plays across the line and is smacked on the front pad. The umpire raises his finger. Rahane does not bother to review. Impact in line? The tracker returns umpires call on impact 147/2
    21.4 dug in short on the off stump, Rohit shapes to pull but the bat twists on impact. He can only splice it off the top of the bat. The ball balloons to deep midwicket, where Hilton Cartwright, subbing for the injured Agar, pouches it. Coulter-Nile breaks the rollicking 139-run stand 139/1
    34.3 eeks, he's picked out long-on has Virat Kohli. Very full from Agar outside off, Kohli sees the length and wants to go over cover, but the bat comes down straight, as opposed to from slightly leg side, which means the ball skews off the inside half and lobs to Finch at long-off. That's a rare mistake from Kohli, won't be happy with the dead ball either 203/3
    45.5 146 kph, full on leg. Pandya mis-times one. Clears his front leg, intends to go over mid-on but mis-times the ball right to mid-on. Fine knock from Pandya 284/5
    35.2 got 'im. A poor shot. Short and wide outside off, coming back in, that ball is not nearly wide enough to cut, but Jadhav still goes through with the stroke. Gets a thick outside edge which Handsomb takes low in front of him. 206/4
