    3.2 played on! Sehwag gets his back foot across marginally and tries to cut one just too close to the body, which comes back in very late, and he can only chop back onto his stumps, handing Bracken and Australia the early initiative ... that shot was not on given the ball wasn't wide enough and he was just undone by the manner in which it jagged back into him 12/1
    6.3 now thats something we don't see very often! Lee pitches back of a length, Tendulkar gets back and across in his crease, getting in line to play it across to square leg, but in the process he ends up trodding on his stumps ... he stands his ground as the decision is referred upstairs, even as Lee lifts his hand in celebration, and he obviously has to go ... talk about being caught on the back foot ... India's openers are back inside cheaply 26/2
    19.2 rapped on the pads and he's gone! Johnson gets one to nip back in and Gambhir, playing across the line, gets struck in front middle stump, dead in front and umpire Steve Davis shoots up the finger ... an enterprising 65-run stand is snapped 91/3
    20.6 edged and gone! Lee strikes, forcing Rohit to drive at one not there for this shot, and the lack of footwork results in a thin edge through to Gilchrist 93/4

    22.2 cleaned em up with a beauty! You had to see this one coming, after a series of short ones, as Lee lands a lovely yorker to a leaden-footed Tiwary, not moving his feet at all from deep in the crease, and his stumps are disturbed ... the debutant goes for 2 and India are in tatters 94/5
    44.1 gone, just like that! Dhoni gets across and twirls a full delivery outside off stump straight to Ponting at extra cover, handing Lee his fourth for the evening 189/8
    26.1 maiden wicket for Noffke as India slip further! The extra bounce does it for Uthappa, getting airborne and trying to tuck it to leg, instead getting a leading-edge that pops up in the air to Clarke at point ... that really sat up near his nose and surprised him 102/6
    38.6 now thats gone! Pathan drives one towards mid-on, sets off for the single but Dhoni sends him back as Ponting swoops in, collects, and fires in a direct hit to get rid of him ... he didn't ground his bat and just continues running on to the dressing room 147/7
    44.3 and he gets five! Harbhajan gets under a short one and slogs it up in the air, the mistimed shot balloons up and Clarke keeps his eyes on it at point 190/9
    44.6 gives himself room to leg stump, slamming it through cover, they get a comfortable two but Sreesanth tries one more after Lee fumbles the collection, only to get run out easily off the last ball of the innings 194/10
