    35.5 gone this time. India finally have a wicket. A little bit of flight, Khawaja comes down the track to try and loft it over long-off. Doesn't get all of it, and picks out Pandey at long-off to perfection. 239/1
    42.3 slower offcutter gets him this time, 110 kph. Burns goes for a magnificent 131-ball 154. He tries to swipe it over square leg, gets a top edge and the fielder at fine leg moves indecisively before getting under it nicely to take a pressure catch. 276/3
    36.2 outside edge and taken! Huge nick outside the off stump, Head drives at the fuller delivery outside the off stump, a thick edge is well taken by Samson behind the stumps. 239/2
    43.4 beauty, slowed up nicely outside the off stump, Lynn comes forward but is beaten on the outside edge. Samson is quick to whip off the bails, Lynn's feet are in the air and has been given. Very well bowled on that occasion. 279/4

    4.1 short and wide, and he's cut it straight to point! That ball was there for that shot, there was room and Agarwal freed his arms and cut it hard. A couple of feet either side of Lynn at point and that would have been four, but the ball travelled fast and straight to the fielder at stomach height. Lynn was standing quite close and had little time to react 24/1

    14.4 bowled im this time. Goes for the cut but misses. Too close for Unmukt to cut, and it spins and takes the off bail. Massive wicket of the set batsman. Good flight too from Zampa. 90/4
    7.1 and immediately strikes. It was a nothing delivery on Pandey's hips. Pandey plays a loose stroke as he tries to work it through the leg side, gets a thick leading edge which spoons straight to midwicket. Soft dismissal there. Pandey was utterly disgusted with that and rightfully so 52/2
    10.2 throws his wicket away! Wide and short, should have been put away to the boundary but instead he cuts it in the air straight to backward point who does not have to move. Lynn bends and takes a good low catch again. Poor shot. Have to keep those down. 67/3
    31 caught on the long-on boundary! Jadhav stepped out of his crease but did not get to the pitch of the ball, he lofted it towards the boundary and the substitute fielder Peter Handscomb jumped out to take the catch over his head while on the move 168/7
    21.3 got im this time. Sanju tries to work it down to third man. Gets a lot of edge on it instead of bat. The edge is gratefully accepted by Wade. Just when the partnership was going well 123/5
    25.3 short on off stump, Axar persists with the pull but is late on it once again. He hits it very awkwardly off the front foot straight to midwicket. Another partnership broken when it was starting to build. 156/6
    34.1 stumped on the second attempt! Rasool had stepped a long way out of his crease and was beaten by a quicker and flatter ball, he was so far out that even though Wade fumbled the first take, he had enough time to catch the rebound off his gloves and break the stumps. The third umpire initially presses the wrong button, before eventually sending Rasool on his way 183/8
    36.2 one more bites the dust. Karn looked good in his innings. But he looks to slog-sweep this over the midwicket boundary, not enough connection however and he ends up skying it towards midwicket who settles under it and takes a comfortable catch. 202/9
    42.3 what a catch Pattinson. Unbelievable catch. A good length delivery which is hit in the air over mid-off, Pattinson runs back and takes an amazing running catch over his head. Brilliant stuff from Patto. 215/10

  • Joe Burns, the stable and sensible

    His 131-ball 154 may not mean he is destined for international greatness, but it showed how well he thinks with bat in hand, and how well he susses up conditions

  • Burns, Khawaja set up bonus-point win

    At a time when Australia are scouring high and low for batting options, Joe Burns and Usman Khawaja put themselves front and centre with a couple of effortless centuries against India A in Chennai to lead a 119-run rout
