Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Aaron Finch, 3.3 ov), 2-62 (Cameron Green, 4.6 ov), 3-75 (Glenn Maxwell, 7.4 ov), 4-84 (Steven Smith, 9.2 ov), 5-115 (Josh Inglis, 13.1 ov), 6-117 (Matthew Wade, 13.5 ov), 7-185 (Tim David, 19.3 ov)
4.6 to C Green, Slashed in the air once again, this time Rahul settles under this skier. On-pace full ball, Bhuvneshwar hides it away from the swinging arc of Green. He throws his bat at ball - as he has done all evening - this time he carves it to Rahul. Good comeback from Bhuvneshwar. India find some breathing space. 62/2
3.3 to AJ Finch, Axar provides India with the breakthrough in the powerplay. Axar pushes it slower and outside off, draws a mis-hit from Finch. He holes out to Pandya. He settles under this skier at mid-on.. 44/1
13.1 to JP Inglis, Axar comes back and takes out Inglis. The batter backs away outside leg in his quest to open up the cover region. Axar darts it into the middle of the pitch and follows Inglis who can only slice it into the hands of Rohit at backward point. 115/5
13.5 to MS Wade, What a double-strike from Axar! Back of a length and angling into the top of off stump. The ball holds up in the pitch and foils Wade's timing. He checks his punch and spoons it back to Axar who throws himself to his left from his followthrough and snags a low catch. 117/6
9.2 to SPD Smith, After backing away to Chahal, Smith gives him the charge and is stumped by DK. Chahal slips in a wrong'un that slides down the leg side. DK gathers the ball and takes the bails off. Smith is gone for 9 off ten balls. 84/4
19.3 to TH David, Harshal has David holing out to Rohit at point. Slower ball into the pitch. He shifts his line wide of off. David swings and skies it to the India captain. End of a terrific innings. 185/7

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (KL Rahul, 0.6 ov), 2-30 (Rohit Sharma, 3.4 ov), 3-134 (Suryakumar Yadav, 13.6 ov), 4-182 (Virat Kohli, 19.2 ov)
0.6 to KL Rahul, In the aiiiir, oh that's gone so high and Wade completes a superb catch under the night sky. Length, he looks for a slog, but can only top-edge straight up. Wade back-tracks, the ball swirling all around, and snaffles it.. 5/1
19.2 to V Kohli, This match continues to get interesting! Back of a length outside off, Kohli drills it but can only hit it straight to extra cover where Finch holds on. 182/4
13.6 to SA Yadav, Long on takes it! Finch had just gone back there and he completes a good catch. Australia desperately needed that. Fuller outside off, he wanted to place it much squarer but ends up hitting it straight to the fielder. Got a good piece of it, just not the elevation. But a top innings from SKY. Has laid a solid foundation. Gets a pat on the back from Kohli.. 134/3
3.4 to RG Sharma, Cummins gets his man! Charges down the track to the short of a length delivery, but Rohit is cramped for room. He still goes through with the pull and can only find Daniel Sams at backward square leg. 30/2
