    10.5 gone, kept a little low, didn't bounce as much as he wanted to, short of a good length and he tried to repeat the shot from the previous ball, missed and was bowled 104/1
    13.6 India will be relieved, short outside off, much quicker, tries to crash it hard through the off side, some extra bounce there, gets an edge and Dhoni snaps it, no doubt in the umpire's mind, that was out 142/2
    17.4 slower one again, bowled on a length on middle and he didn't appear to pick it, tried to clear long-on but failed, Vijay took it comfortably a few yards inside the ropes 172/4
    16.3 stumped, gets some turn, lands on a good length, Haddin steps out of the crease and tries to clear extra cover, misses as it spins away and Dhoni does the rest 166/3

    2.1 Vijay gets the leading edge and is caught, got to him quick, short of a good length outside off and he tried to turn the face and gifted a simple catch to White at cover, it was angling away and he chose the wrong shot 10/1
    2.6 gone! Gambhir mistimes again and finds the fielder, 146 kmph and it was quicker than he might have liked, shaped up to play the pull, gets it high on the bat and it lobs up straight towards midwicket 12/2
    3.4 India in trouble now, another short delivery and he tries to pull that over square leg, the Australians are getting good bounce and are putting in the effort, got the top edge again and both Clarke, running in from cover, and the Warner called for it, they collided but Clarke still held on close to the stumps 17/3

    4.6 bowled'im! Aiming for the blockhole and gets it right, sliding on leg stump, Yuvraj tries to work it through the leg side, misses, it clips the pads and brushes the off stump to leave India in further trouble 23/4
    7.5 Dhoni holes out! Bowled flat, lands full on middle, Dhoni comes down the track and smacks it hard but doesn't get much elevation, sends it straight into the palms of David Hussey at long-on 37/5
    8.6 well taken by Warner, Yusuf mistimed that one, was full outside off and it appeared he was trying to clear extra cover, ended up slicing it over point and Warner, running in from point, dived forward and grabbed an excellent low catch, Australia are all over India 42/6
    10.3 run-out, slaps it to mid-on and takes off for a single, David Hussey picks and hurls an accurate throw at the non-striker's end, Jadeja is well short, what a terrible game he's had 50/7
    14.3 gone this time, another flatbat shot to a short ball, hits low on the bat, not enough power, the ball swirls to mid-off where David Hussey snaffles it 97/8
    17.2 Zaheer's gone this time, short ball does the job, looks for a cross-batted hit, only top-edges it towards mid-off 133/9
    17.4 no he can't, a yorker that was much too good for him crashes into the base of middle stump, Australia win by 49 runs, a massive margin in Twenty20s, no doubting who the favourites for the title are now 135/10
