1.5 140 kph, back of a length and swings in slightly upon pitching. Finch plays outside of the line and the ball goes through the gate between bat and pad to remove the dangerous opening bat. Huge wicket for India as Finch has been consistently giving solid starts to Australia throughout the series 5/1
    5.4 139 kph, back of a length which rises sharply as Hughes hangs his bat, caught in mid-stride, with the ball taking the outside edge through to Dhoni who completes a fine take. Second wicket down and Shami is on a roll 24/2
    7.6 139 kph, length ball swinging in as Watson looks for the booming cover drive, but the ball jags in just enough to find the gap. What a beauty from Shami! Third wicket for him and Australia in serious trouble now 32/3
    37.1 124 kph, and Bailey will not go on to score a century as he top-edges this short delivery to deep midwicket, where Rohit Sharma takes a safe catch to remove the Australian captain. Unfortunate end to what has been a stand out innings. An innings that truly put Australia back in the driver's seat 224/5
    14.3 90 kph, quicker delivery on middle and leg which Voges gets on one knee to paddle round the corner, but misses the ball. The ball thuds into the front pad, and Ashwin goes up instantly, with the umpire confirming the decision. Big wicket for India as they look to take out the big guns early in hopes of keeping the chase minimal 71/4
    39.6 127 kph, and it looks as if Maxwell will not get a maiden century as a fuller length delivery on middle jags just a bit in and hits under the knee roll. Looked adjacent the moment it struck, and Richard Kettleborough confirms the decision. But when the replay is looked at for a front-foot no-ball, it appears Vinay has just got some part of his foot behind the line. Almost touch and go there 238/7
    38.3 pulls out the straighter one which pitches on a length on middle and off, with Haddin covering for the spin. Jaddu strikes and India trying to ebb away at the momentum gained by Australia 232/6
    not out
    48.5 this time fires in the quicker one as Johnson advances down the track, but misses the ball entirely with his slog, with Dhoni quick on his feet to stump the left hand fast bowler 281/8
