    7.6 what a catch! Johnson bowls it short, Gambhir swivels and connects well with the pull, the ball's flying hard and flat for six but Brad Hodge covers good ground, then realizes he's overrun himself, moves back and holds onto a very, very good catch to send him back! Immense effort and Australia have picked up their second wicket 41/2
    5.2 but he's gone now! Johnson bowls this one back of a length, the ball sits up more than Sehwag expected, and he gets an outside-edge going for a slash over point, cramped for room, and Gilchrist gleefully takes it 30/1
    14.3 Full and straight. Driven really hard towards cover. Andrew Symonds half fields that one. The ball goes just wide of him. Uthappa wants the single and has come down the pitch. Symonds grabs the ball and looks for the keeper. Gilchrist is not in position behind the stumps yet. Symonds lines the stumps up and throws them down with a rocket. 125/3
    17.3 Yuvraj tries to repeat the stroke and this time does not quite get hold of the ball. The ball sails high and towards midwicket but does not have enough on it to clear Michael Hussey. End of a terrific innings from Yuvraj and Gilchrist's gamble with bowling Clarke has paid off 155/4

    5.1 bowled em! Sreesanth pitches full on the stumps, Gilchrist doesnt move his feet an inch, instead choosing to fatefully play from deep in the crease, misses out on the attempted on-drive, and loses his middle stump! Big wicket for India! 36/1
    14.4 Biggie! Sreesanth comes round the stumps and powers the yorker in. It's quick, it's on target, it's just a bit too good for Hayden's ambitious shot. The ball sneaks under bat and uproots the off stump. This is a huge, huge wicket from Sreesanth in his comeback over 134/3
    8.4 gone! Wasnt a decent ball, pitching well outside leg stump on a short length, but all Hodge can do is swivel and pull it straight to Joginder at short fine leg! 68/2

    16.4 Another strike! It's a big one for India as Symonds loses his off stump. Pathan is bang on target as Symonds backs away and tries to hit. The ball crashes into off stump and India are right back in this nail-biter of a game 156/4
    19.3 short of a good length and outside the off, big heave to the on side, that one goes high rather than far, Yuvraj Singh runs across to wide long-on and holds the catch. Now surely that is the end of that. Big, big wicket for Joginder in a big over 167/6
    17.1 Yorker! Michael Clarke doesn't expect this from Harbhajan and has no answer as he walks down the crease and the ball just spears into the leg stump. Another really quality bit of bowling and this might just be the wicket that tilts the scales in India's favour 159/5

    19.5 full, straight yorker and Lee has no chance as he has a big heave. The leg stump is uprooted and the Indians erupt in celebration. Another wicket as India really drive this win home 169/7
