    4.3 Warner takes a low catch at mid-off. Cross seam and not that full, was angling away from the batsman. Rohit looks to hit it down the ground but it comes slower off the surface. The bat faces closes a touch too early as well. As a result it goes tamely towards Warner, just carrying to him. Think Rohit was looking to go over extra cover 13/1
    28.5 Dhawan goes! Must have been a change of pace, because Dhawan got that nowhere near where he wanted to play it. Just looks to flick it away, and the outside edge carries it towards cover. Ashton Agar runs in from mid-off and takes a good, diving catch away to his right. The set man is gone, as the bowling change makes a difference immediately for Finch! 140/3
    27.1 GONE! Chips a length ball in the air, just doesn't get to the pitch of one floated around off. Perhaps gripped a bit on the pitch too, and he just drives this straight to Steve Smith at cover. Loud cheers, as the crowd prepare for Virat Kohli 134/2
    31.2 he's gotten his revenge! Kohli falls to Zampa again! Driven hard, to a ball that was floated around off, and he just couldn't keep it away from Zampa, who takes a sharp chance and then punches the air. Important breakthrough for Australia at this stage, as it exposes the relatively soft underbelly of the Indian batting, with a good way to cover in this innings 156/4
    32.5 and the move to bring Starc back has worked. Don't think it was a special delivery though, a length ball angling away, Iyer pushes away from the body and gets an outside edge, a simple catch for Carey behind the stumps 164/5
    43.2 a short one hurries onto the Pant who goes for the pull, gets a top edge onto the helmet and it lobs towards point. An easy catch but umpire Shamshuddin is unmoved as everyone looks towards him. Meanwhile, the batsmen are sneaking in single, no direct hit but then the umpire raises his finger. Pant departs after a bit of drama 217/7
    42.1 length ball at the batsman, was a knuckle delivery, bounces extra as well. Jadeja was looking to run it down towards third man but the ball hits near the shoulder of the bat and an easy catch for Carey 213/6
    44.5 nails the yorker, it was just a matter of time, Shardul fails to get anything on it and the off stump has been knocked out from its groove. The fact that Shardul was looking to play across the line didn't help either t 229/8
    49.1 length ball at the stumps, backs away and looks to smash across, gets a top edge that goes high and behind the stumps, Carey positions himself under it as it comes spiralling down, the ball pops out of his gloves but he does well to cling to the rebound, between his chin/neck and the glove 255/10
    48.6 a direct hit from Smith and Kuldeep has to go back. Fuller outside off, Shami steered it towards backward point and set off, Smith had all the time to nail the direct hit and he does 255/9
