    0.3 and he's walked! Praveen Kumar has done the trick again, starts outside off and moving a shade away, tentative poke from Gilchrist and the ball kisses the outside edge on its way to the keeper, big appeal and he is on his way, Praveen can't contain his excitement, dream start for India, Gilchrist walks off to a rousing ovation, probably for the last time in a one-dayer 2/1
    25.4 got him! Symonds pushes into the covers, Yuvraj does the work, throwing the ball back in to Harbhajan who takes the stumps as Hayden can't back in at the non-striker's end 121/4
    2.3 got 'em, now then, now then, short and outside off, Ponting goes for the pull and can't get hold of it, spoons an easy catch to Yuvraj at mid-on, that seemed to stop on him a bit, Yuvraj can't contain his excitement, Kumar is cock-a-hoop, what a start for him, someone must be planning a party in Meerut today 8/2

    8.6 castled! that one kept low and Kumar's straighter one beats Clarke's defences, slightly short of a length, Clarke tries the pull but that ball shoots through, it's straight and rocks back off-stump, big blow for Australia, signs of up and down, India on a roll now 32/3
    25.6 outside off, turns back a fair way and traps Symonds on the pad low and in front of middle and off, the batsman bending over the ball and it would have gone on to take middle 123/5
    41.6 width and short outside off and Hussey cuts hard off the back foot, sending through a thick snick of an under edge to Dhoni who took it and started celebrating 199/6
    49.4 outside off and Hopes drives it up to Chawla at mid-on who takes the catch calmly and India win! 249/10

    46.4 cleans him up this time with the slower one, Lee going for the huge pull across the line and the ball crashes on to the sticks 228/7
    48.2 got him! A big edge through to Dhoni off the back foot, Sreesanth gets another wicket in similar fashion, a short ball way outside off, Johnson goes for the huge pull to midwicket and the under edge slicks through to the keeper 238/8
    49.2 full delivery comes in slow on off, Bracken swipes it up to midwicket where a pedalling Chawla runs over and takes it over his head at the second grasp 247/9
