    3.3 outside edge and gone! super stuff from Starc, Gautam falls to a nick outside off again, Starc gets it to rear up at him from back of a length, and Gautam pokes it on its way to the keeper 13/2
    1.5 he's gone! Ponting takes out Tendulkar, Starc pitches it up wide, not full enough, Tendulkar reaches out and goes for the drive, it flies low to Ponting's right, and the veteran goes down to take it safely, he is mobbed by his team-mates 9/1
    11.2 Ponting at shortish backward point holds on to the screamer, Virat was batting superbly but he is gone now, cuts a wide delivery hard but straight to Ponting 64/3
    11.4 McKay strikes again, India deep in trouble now, short of a length and getting big on Rohit, who has looked like getting out any moment, moves away just a bit after pitching and Rohit can only fend it to the keeper 65/4
    14.2 oh dear, Raina has fallen to the short ball, to Dan Christian, not the most threatening bowler going around, goes for an awkward pull, off the front foot, and only ends up lobbing the ball for midwicket to take a dolly running to his right 77/5
    25.2 Dhoni has holed out to long off, he has been swinging full deliveries hard from the crease, he got hold of this one alright, it flew off the middle high towards Warner, who timed his leap superbly to hold on to it 128/9
    22.3 another one goes! this would have been a six at most grounds in India, McKay banging it in short, Jadeja looks to pull it into the stands beyond deep midwicket but only gets it as far as the man in the deep who holds on as he tumbles to the ground 114/6
    23.1 superb work in the deep from Christian, Ashwin hung his bat out to a wide and low full toss and got it through point, Christian chased and stopped it with a slide, looked back to see them attempting a third, and steadied himself before aiming at Ashwin's end, knowing that the slower man would struggle to make it, he is caught short by a mile, and more 120/7
    23.5 they keep falling, Rahul departs to a full toss, he makes room, and has a big swing at it, only to miss, and the ball crashes into middle 123/8
    29.4 Harris redeems himself for dropping a simple catch by taking a brilliant low take, running a long way in from long on, and tumbling forward to hold on to PK's slog 151/10
