    0.6 caught at third man! He fell for the trap! It was short and wide, he freed the hands to slap a cut shot up and over backward point, there was extra bounce, he got a top edge that flew all the way to third man and Zampa took the catch well, infront off his chest. What a start for Australia. 0/1
    8.3 huge LBW appeal, given not out. The Australians think this is plumb. They review. Dhawan went back to a shorter ball but it slid on quickly off the pitch, he tried to pull and played straight over it. He was hit flush on the pad infront of leg. Ball tracking has it crashing into leg! He's OUT! That wasn't there to pull, not short enough and the low skid did him. Great review. Well bowled by Maxwell. 38/2
    47.1 caught at deep square leg! Kohli can't believe he found the fielder! He's furious with himself. Short slower ball stopped in the surface a touch, he timed the pull shot well but just dragged it squarer than he intended, straight to Stoinis who holds on! The end of another masterful display. 248/8
    16.6 He's given LBW! Rayudu reviews. It was shorter, pitching close to leg, he went back and wiped across the line with an open face as it came off the surface slowly, trying to strangely slice it into the off side. He missed it and was hit on the back pad. Did it pitch in line? No bat involved. Ball tracking says pitching in line, hitting middle! Plumb. India lose Rayudu and the review! 75/3
    28.5 oh no. That's such an unfortunate way to go. Full again, and Kohli drives it straight this time, with a lot of power, and the bowler dives to his right and gets his fingertips onto the ball, just about grazes it on its way to the stumps at the other end. Vijay dives to try and regain his ground, but he's just short. A really unfortunate end to a superb innings, he deserved at least a fifty here 156/4
    32.2 gone, that's a soft dismissal. Full and wide outside off, perhaps too full to play the lofted drive over short extra-cover. Goes for it and hits it straight to the fielder 171/5
    32.3 and he's gone first ball! Perhaps not short enough to cut, or wide enough, and it hurries through off the pitch. Dhoni rocks back and only manages a thick edge that is gobbled up brilliantly at slip by Usman Khawaja falling to his right. He wouldn't have had much reaction time there 171/6
    45.5 caught at mid off! Slower ball does the trick. Mid off was inside the circle. It was full, he gave himself some room to go inside out over mid off, he miscues off the toe of the bat and slices it high to mid off, Khawaja runs back from the circle and takes the catch well. 238/7
    47.5 Bowled him around his legs! Slower ball off cutter, it pitched outside leg, Kuldeep shuffled across his stumps trying to glance it fine, he missed and it crashed into the exposed leg stump! Four for Cummins! 249/9
    not out
    48.2 chopped on! This was full and wide of off, he reached away from his body to drive, got a thick inside edge and dragged it back onto the stumps! India bowled out with 10 balls left! 250/10

    14.3 LBW! He's out sweeping! Finch asks Khawaja about a review but decides against. It was tossed up on off, he gets down on one knee to sweep square, misses, gets hit on the front pad in front of off stump as it's spinning back down the line and the umpire's finger goes up! 83/1
    15.3 caught at cover off the leading edge! What a mistake! This was looped up on off, Khawaja lazily gets forward and closes the bat face early trying to work against the minimal spin, gets a thick leading edge that flies in the air all the way to cover and Kohli takes the simple catch! 83/2
    23.5 huge appeal, and it's given! Sharp turn once again, from just outside off, and Marsh goes on the back foot to flick. Spins too much for him to middle it, and Dhoni does spectacularly to catch it down the leg side after the ball grazes his inside edge 122/3
    37.3 what a glorious bit of fielding this is. Shami shortens his length slightly, gets it to tail back in slightly towards off stump. Handscomb presses half-forward, chops to the right of backward point, and calls his partner through for a quick single. Mistake, because who's the fielder at backward point? Ravindra Jadeja. He swoops onto the ball like lightning and hurls down the stumps at the non-striker's end with a fiercely powerful, flat no-bounce throw. What an incredible fielder he is. Handscomb was really hurrying, but no batsman is quicker than the ball 171/5
    28.3 a string of dots, Maxwell looks to force it, and Kuldeep gets a bit of inconsistent bounce off the surface to get his man. Shortish, maybe not short enough to pull, and he exposes his stumps as he opens up to do so. Keeps really low and sneaks under his bat to crash into middle stump. India have slowly built some pressure over the last few overs, and the wickets have duly followed. Big, big moment. 132/4
    49.1 big appeal, and it's given! Immediate review too. Nowhere near short enough to pull, and not full enough to loft over mid-on, and he's caught between the two. It's angling in towards leg stump. Misses, and it hits him on the back leg. Looked out on first viewing, and it still looks out now. Let's see what ball-tracking has to say. No bat on it. Umpire's call on leg stump, and Stoinis has to walk back dejected. An excellent innings, he's kept Australia in it right up to now. And they still just need one big hit, even if it's Nos. 10 and 11 at the crease 240/9
    44.3 he's conceding runs, but with Kuldeep Yadav a wicket is always round the corner. Wrong'un, floated up wide of off stump. Too full to sweep, and Carey only manages to drag it onto his stumps off the bottom edge 218/6
    45.2 bowled him! Not the best shot from Coulter-Nile. He's been going after everything, and this is particularly risky, making room to try and cut Bumrah. That wicked angle does the rest, and there's no bat involved as the ball sneaks through and knocks back middle stump 223/7
    45.4 lovely delivery, and there's a big appeal for a low catch behind. Dhoni thinks it's out. They're taking this upstairs, and the soft signal is out. Length ball angling into a fourth-stump line, and it straightens off the pitch. Cummins pokes at it, gets a thin edge, and Dhoni, falling forward and to his right, takes this low chance as cleanly as possible. Bumrah is turning it on here 223/8
    not out
    49.3 in the blockhole, and it's all over! He played a lovely innings at No. 5, and now he's bowled a great over under pressure. Full, straight, aiming at middle stump, and Zampa, making room to try and carve it away through point, fails to connect 242/10
