10 October 2013 - night match (20-over match)
  Australia innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Finch c & b Vinay Kumar 89 71 52 14 1 171.15
16.3 he's got him. Can you believe it's off a knee-high full toss? That's floated up to Finch, who misjudges the pace, and is too early on the shot. He gets an under-edge and hits it straight back to the bowler, who seems to hurt his finger as he holds on. End of a very good innings. 174/6
View dismissal NJ Maddinson b Kumar 34 19 16 6 1 212.50
4.5 gone! Bit of inexperience there you have to think. He was batting so well, playing decent shots, but he goes for an ungainly swipe across the line, and Kumar comes in from around the wicket to angle one in. Maddinson misses, Bhuvneshwar hits the top of off stump and sends the wicket flying. Promising first innings though. 56/1
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Vinay Kumar 6 12 5 1 0 120.00
7.2 jagged back in sharply, off a length and it misses Watson's big off drive. Hits him on the back pad and he has to go. Very good ball 84/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c Jadeja b Vinay Kumar 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
7.5 short ball on the stumps and Bailey doesn't last long. He pulls that one, but not very well. The mistimed stroke goes straight to the man at deep square leg. Second wicket of the over, and it could be a match-changing one for India 84/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c I Sharma b Jadeja 27 12 13 0 4 207.69
11.3 he's gone now. Maxwell was aiming for yet another six, but Jadeja does him in the flight, and he mistimes this to Ishant Sharma at long on, who takes it just inside the rope, I think. Umpires check it and replays show that Sharma didn't touch the boundary. Good catch, and a decent ball from Jadeja. Took the bottom edge I think, 124/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Dhoni b Kumar 5 5 3 1 0 166.66
13.3 short, wide and out. That deserved to go the boundary, but instead it ends in the wicketkeeper's gloves. Might have moved slightly off the seam, but it wasn't much. Haddin cuts at it, and gets a top edge to the keeper 146/5
View dismissal MC Henriques c Yuvraj Singh b Kumar 12 16 12 1 0 100.00
17.4 and another slower ball does the trick. Shortish one, outside off stump. Henriques tries to pull but again, is too early and a leading edge balloons to point 180/7
NM Coulter-Nile not out 12 18 11 1 0 109.09

View dismissal RG Sharma c †Haddin b McKay 8 8 8 0 1 100.00
1.5 he's struggled with that ball today, and Clint McKay's got caught behind. Fullish outside off stump and seaming away, Sharma aims a big off drive but only gets an outside edge and that's an easy take for Haddin. No Mumbai-esque heroics today. 12/1
View dismissal S Dhawan st †Haddin b Doherty 32 40 19 5 0 168.42
8.3 he's been coming down the wicket so often, maybe Doherty thought this would just be a matter of time. Dhawan bounds down the pitch again and Doherty pitches it short and wide again. If Dhawan had stayed on the crease, he could have cut this one away too. Maybe he thought Doherty would over-correct and bowl the full delivery. Either way, he's way out of his crease, and is stumped. 80/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Watson b Coulter-Nile 19 17 13 2 1 146.15
5.3 but the short ball does Raina in again. This one is much better directed, probably over off stump. Raina tries to pull, is late on it and it takes the top edge, going high. Watson at midwicket goes back a few metres and takes the catch over his shoulder. 50/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Faulkner b McKay 29 26 22 2 1 131.81
11.1 McKay's uncanny ability to take wickets is on show again, this time he gets the big one of Kohli, who charged down the track to a short of length ball, looking to muscle that over wide long-on, caught just within the rope at wide long-on 100/4
