    4.1 He's gone! Leans back and tries to steer it to third man, ends up edging it to the keeper. 22/1
    12.6 Chahal gets another! Parthiv gets in the act again as Sehwag tries to cut a legbreak. Replays suggest there was no outside edge, though. 88/5
    5.5 What a catch! Mitchell Starc, running to his left from fine leg, takes it coolly in his stride, inches from the rope, as Saha plays a pick-up shot off a length ball on leg stump. 33/2
    7.1 Starc takes another! Maxwell pulls, but doesn't hit it too cleanly, and Starc has to run in from the ropes and dive forward to cup it inches from the ground. 40/3
    12.2 lovely delivery. Googly tossed up outside off, and Miller follows it with his hands, trying to hit it square but only managing an outside edge to Parthiv, who takes a good sharp catch. 85/4
