    7.2 caught at cover! One handed! Another catch plucked from nowhere. Finch went back to the short of length delivery outside off and smashed it, reallly smashed it. The only thing was that he hit in the air, and Bravo pulls off a super reflex catch. he went with two hands, but only could get a hand on it as it went too quick to him 25/2
    4.2 caught at square leg! Oh wow! That is a double-handed ripper. It was a length ball on the middle stump and Khawaja went for a flick, he timed it really well and I thought it was heading towards the boundary, but Powell at square-leg dives full length to his right, catches the ball while in air and cuts off Uzzie's innings. 16/1
    12.4 caught at midwicket! Oh no! There goes another one to a shot he would have thought was going towards the boundary. It was a hit-me delivery, short of length on the body, and Hughes goes for a pull. He had all the time at Sammy's pace, but he neither places it on the ground, or high up in the air, hits it straight to Darren Bravo at midwicket. 56/3
    13.1 Timber!!!! full delivery on the middle stump, a bit quicker from Bravo and Clarke looks to flick it through the leg side, but misses the ball completely and hears the clatter of the stumps behind him. That is a huge huge wicket. 56/4
    not out
    22.6 caught at first slip! Oh what a blinder from the captain! Wade goes for the cut again, this time the ball didn't come back into him, but bounced extra. He gets a healthy edge towards first slip, but it travels fast and high, and Sammy shows excellent reflexes by pulling off a super one-hander over his head 93/5
    23.4 Chopped on! Oh the Aussies are crumbling here.. Shot, no shot, whatever. Maxwell, who score a fifty last innings, tries to pull his bat out of the way of a length delivery outside off, he is too late though. The ball hits the inside edge and drops on to his stumps. More joy for captain Sammy 98/6
    44.2 caught at deep midwicket! So there is the wicket, they had to wait almost 20 overs for it. Faulkner makes room by moving outside leg and tries to flat-bat that to the stands at deep midwicket but it goes high, and is caught just inside the boundary by Powell, who didn't have to move much at all 198/7

    1.4 that's it! It's all over, Gayle talks to Powell and thinks about a review, Powell says no chance. It was full and swinging away, it pitched around off and Gayle was hit right in front as he got squared-up a bit. Starc strikes in his first over.. 10/1
    29.3 another yorker, this time on the off and middle stump, Powell digs it out and Mitchell Starc catches it in return. Australians appeal for lbw as the ball might have hit the pad before the bat. the umpire says not out and they ask for a review. It hits the pads first..and it was going to hit off and middle. Starc takes out Powell. 166/5
    1.6 it is a gonner! He thought that the over had finished, but it hadn't. The ball is a perfect left-armer's delivery, pitches on length on the middle stump line, and curves back in. Sarwan had taken a step forward but wasn't able to take his foot out of the way, stuck in front and he was dead the moment he missed it.. 10/2
    7.6 and the nostalgic picture is torn apart by a full delivery from Starc! He had been bowling a slightly shorter length this over, and now he pushes it full and on the stumps and Lara is late to bring his bat down, that was hitting middle of middle. Bravo reviews in hope, but that was out even to a blind eye... 33/3
    27.6 Maxwell gets a wicket!! It was a flatter delivery from round the wicket and Bravo went for a cute little late cut and ended up edging it to the keeper. Leaves straight away, Maxwell roars.. 159/4
    30.1 caught at long on! The batting is crumbling! Pollard sees the flight and launches it into the skies, but it's not quite Wankhede so the ball doesn't go for a six, it comes down close the boundary where Finch takes a good catch. The wheels are coming off, it's official 168/7
    29.4 gets a short ball on off stump which goes past the outside edge as the batsman tries to sway away.. Everyone goes up on an appeal for caught behind. the umpire shakes his head, but they call for a review.. A brute of a delivery.. Hot-spot being tested. Was there some glove on it? Not not very conclusive.. They are checking for sound cues... too long being taken here (we are into the zone where DRS starts becoming a bit of a pain).. He gives him out.. on the sound cue.. Well, I thought ..Speechless I am.. 166/6
    34.4 caught at long off! boom! He was not to the pitch of the delivery, but he went for the big shot nonetheless, and just scoops it over to the fielder at long-off. And just like that, Maxwell has three. What a day for him! 179/8
    38.1 comes out of the pitch and drives it straight to cover. There is hesitation between the batsmen though and that costs Holder his wicket as he is inches short of the crease at the non-striker's end.. 212/10
    36.6 but he moves out of the crease again, and Maxwell fires it wide of off again. Narine takes long to come back to the crease, by that time, Wade has done his job. 209/9
