    31.5 appeal for lbw, and given! Finch falls for 93? Well, we need to wait. He's reviewing. Length ball on leg, and the ball straightens after pitching. Finch is on the back foot as he misses the flick, and now all we wait for is ball tracking. Here's the replay: and Finch is out! Ball crashing into middle and leg stump, and the India supporters finally find their voice 193/1
    38.3 bad ball, and it gets him a wicket! it is short, and Khawaja latches on to it, looking for the pull. Comes off the bottom part of the bat and carries to Bumrah at short midwicket. What a hand from Khawaja here, though! 239/2
    41.6 length, outside off, and he goes back and punches this towards cover. Jadeja stops it, and Dhoni hits the stumps at one go off his return! Maxwell is gone, as Dhoni catches him short with a very quick flick on from the throw. Important wicket this! 258/3
    43.2 uses his feet to get to a length ball, but cannot keep his on drive down. And Vijay Shankar moves swiftly to his right, and takes a sharp, low catch! 263/4
    not out
    43.4 goes forward to a length ball, turns into him, and he's a goner! They also don't have a review left, just like India. Pitched just outside off, but he was very much in front of the stumps, as the ball turned back in. Once it missed his bat, I suspect he knew he could be in trouble. 263/5
    not out

    3.3 taken at point! Dhawan's poor form continues. Length ball angling away, and Dhawan can't resist. Tries to lift a cut-shot over point, but doesn't find the elevation. Maxwell keeps his eyes on the ball as he dives to his right, and pouches this while sliding into the grass. Richardson rejoices 11/1
    4.3 appeal for lbw, but the umpire doesn't give it! Australia are surely reviewing. This was a length ball that didn't rise as much, and Rohit was surprised by the (lack of) bounce. Ball angles in, and hits him on the back leg, so that's worrying for India. Was there any inside edge? There's a bit of a spike, but is that ball grazing the front-pad or bat? Umpire thinks that's grazed the front-pad and ball-tracking says that the ball is crashing into middle stump! A good review, and India lose their second opener too 15/2
    37.3 Zampa has the last laugh! It's the googly that gets Kohli. Full on middle, and spinning into Kohli. He tries to whip this off his toes to midwicket, but the ball goes under his bat, and clips leg stump. Kohli (as expected) is not happy at all 219/6
    6.2 what a beautiful ball! India in tatters! Length ball on off, and Rayudu looks to defend off the front foot, but the ball jags away oh-so-slightly, and Rayudu has lost his off stump. Played completely down the wrong line 27/3
    19.1 gone! No honeymoon homecoming for Dhoni! Full ball, and he looks to swing this down the ground, and inside-edges it on to the stumps. There's stunned silence at the JSCA Stadium, and the crowd just about begins to realise what has happened as he walks back towards the pavillion. This was breezy, but all too brief from MS Dhoni. More importantly, just brings a bit more pressure to bear on Virat Kohli, who is batting beautifully at one end 86/4
    31.4 length ball, and he looks to sweep, but gets caught in the crease. Jadhav asks Kohli if he should review, but his captain wants him to walk back. Good bowling from Zampa thus far today, and he is duly rewarded for it. More importantly, good on Australia to break what was a big partnership for India. 88 put together at about 7 an over 174/5
    42.6 taken at cow corner! Shankar goes. Full on off, and he tries to slog across the line again. Toe-ends the shot, and Richardson takes a smart low catch 251/7
    47.1 full on middle, and Jadeja goes for the big shot. Tries to clear mid-on, but he's toe-ended the shot straight to that man. Game over? 273/8
    48.2 there's the win! Australia stay alive in this series to make it 2-1. Full on off, and Kuldeep goes for a leg-side heave. Slices it into the air, and cover makes no mistake. Australia win by 32 runs 281/10
    47.5 back of a length, wide outside off, and Shami wants to cut. Toe-ends the shot, and that's lobbed in the air. Taken at cover. India nine down 281/9
