END OF OVER:

10pm Play abandoned. I'm afraid there's very bad news from Kuala Lumpur. Incessant rain has washed out any chance of play and the points will be shared two apiece between India and Australia. India were floundering at 35 for 5, chasing 170 in 29 overs, when rain intervened for the final time and they're lucky to salvage any points at all from this game.

As it stands, Australia are leading the table with seven points. West Indies have five because they gained a bonus point in their win against India who are bottom with the two points gained out of today's wash out.

It's been a pleasure bringing you today's game. Please do join us on Monday when Australia take on West Indies. That match starts at 12pm IST. That's about it from me today, cheers!

9.30pm And it's raining again. The players have gone off. India won't mind this really because they've been blown out of the match by a fiery spell of left-arm fast bowling. Australia on the other hand will be very disappointed, at 35 for 5 chasing 170 in 29 overs, they have India by the proverbial scruff off the neck.

Johnson in two overs after lunch has virtually ended India's chase. He's taken four in the space of twelve balls and that needless run-out of Sehwag has worsened the situtation.

Johnson to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Johnson is on fire! Short on a length on off stump, moves a shade away, Yuvraj fends aimlessly outside off stump, gets an edge and first slip gleefully accepts the offering

Johnson to Yuvraj Singh, no run, short off a length just outside off stump, punched off the back foot to cover

Johnson to Yuvraj Singh, no run, short of a length on off stump, defended off the back foot

Johnson to Raina, 1 run, straight ball, Raina pushes forward and gets an edge past square leg for one

Wickets are falling in a heap here and Raina is the new batsman. How long will he last?

Johnson to Tendulkar, OUT, and Tendulkar goes as well! Full and outside off stump, Tendulkar goes for the drive and gets a thickish outside edge, Haddin takes it easily

Johnson to Tendulkar, no run, played with an open face to point

Yuvraj Singh is the new batsman. Johnson on a hat-trick
