Fall of wickets: 1-76 (Adam Gilchrist, 13.2 ov), 2-112 (Matthew Hayden, 20.3 ov), 3-135 (Ricky Ponting, 28.2 ov), 4-258 (Michael Clarke, 44.6 ov), 5-263 (Brad Hodge, 46.4 ov), 6-290 (Andrew Symonds, 49.5 ov), 7-290 (James Hopes, 49.6 ov)
44.6 to MJ Clarke, Clarke gets a little ambitious and gives his wicket away, full on middle stump, he takes a couple of strides forward and lofts with little effort over the bowler, Irfan Pathan runs across from long-on and takes it easily. 258/4
46.4 to BJ Hodge, timber! good length on off stump, comes in with the angle, Hodge plays the wrong stroke - tries a cheeky glide to third man. Zaheer beats him for pace as the ball clips the off stump. 263/5
49.5 to A Symonds, slower ball, on middle and leg, Symonds gives room and aims over long-on, doesnt quite time it as well as Uthappa takes it easily. 290/6
49.6 to JR Hopes, Hopes goes for an across-the-line swipe over midwicket and ends up hitting it straight to Dravid in that region. 290/7
13.2 to AC Gilchrist, and there's the breakthrough! Pathan bowls it much slower, fuller, and minus all that extra width and Gilchrist just swings across the line, beaten by the slowness, and the ball crashes into middle stump. 76/1
20.3 to ML Hayden, big nick and no doubt about that! wide outside off stump, Hayden stretches his bat out and tries to slash past point, the ball gets the toe edge of his bat and is easily taken by Dhoni.. 112/2
28.2 to RT Ponting, Ponting goes and aren't India happy! flighted outside off stump, Ponting goes for a half-hearted loft over long-off, Sreesanth runs a few yards across to his left and takes it easily. 135/3

TOTAL47.4 Ov (RR: 5.09, 224 Mins)243
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Gautam Gambhir, 2.5 ov), 2-11 (Robin Uthappa, 3.5 ov), 3-13 (Rahul Dravid, 4.5 ov), 4-108 (Sachin Tendulkar, 24.6 ov), 5-173 (MS Dhoni, 35.6 ov), 6-176 (Rohit Sharma, 36.6 ov), 7-183 (Irfan Pathan, 38.3 ov), 8-219 (Yuvraj Singh, 43.1 ov), 9-226 (Zaheer Khan, 44.3 ov), 10-243 (Sreesanth, 47.4 ov)
2.5 to G Gambhir, and thats gone! Lee strikes and gets Gambhir dead in front of the stumps, pitching it full, 130.4ks, and swinging back in to the left-hander, catching him on the hop and umpire Shastri raises the finger of fate with no hesitation .. that would have taken out middle and leg. 10/1
4.5 to R Dravid, oh superb catch! Dravid pokes at a fuller delivery, 145.4ks, and gets an outside edge that flies low towards slip where Hayden keeps his eyes on it even as Gilchrist dives across his vision and cups the catch an inch above the grass! Excellent catch, though its referred to the umpire, and Dravid has to go ... Australia right in the thick of things. 13/3
35.6 to MS Dhoni, edged and gone! Lee strikes in his return over, landing it on a short length and sucking Dhoni into a leaden-footed flirt outside off stump, the outside-edge snapped up by an all too happy Gilchrist as Australia break a threatening partnership. 173/5
3.5 to RV Uthappa, gone! Johnson pitches full and gets it to swing in, Uthappa moves a long way across his stumps and looks to work it away but misses and the ball hits him on the front leg .. after a careful thought Bucknor upholds the vociferous appeal ... Uthappa goes exactly as he did at Kochi, walking across dangerously. 11/2
43.1 to Yuvraj Singh, and the yorker sends him packing! Johnson fires that on middle stump, Yuvraj tries to work it to the on side but leaves a lot of daylight between bat and pad, the middle stump flips backwards and goes back about four yards. 219/8
47.4 to S Sreesanth, timber! Clark seals it in style with a yorker. Aimed at middle stump, Sreesanth gives room to slog, he swings and the ball hits the base of middle stump and sends it back a few yards. 243/10
36.6 to RG Sharma, Sharma doesnt make an impact! Hopes digs it in and the rookie gets up in an attempt to work it on its way, swivelling and swatting it off the hips but finding Lee running in from deep backward square leg, who slides onto one knee and takes a comfortable catch. 176/6
24.6 to SR Tendulkar, disaster for India! Tendulkar gives himself plenty of room outside off to cut, the ball lands on a full length and jags back in and clips the off stump. 108/4
38.3 to IK Pathan, and Hogg strikes on return as well, tossing up a yorker-length delivery on off stump, which pitches and turns into Pathan as he goes for an ambitious sweep with minimal footwork, and he gets struck in front of middle stump ... pretty easy decision for umpire Shastri. 183/7
44.3 to Z Khan, the full toss consumes him. a lot of flight in that delivery by Hogg, Zaheer leans onto the stroke a little too early and ends up spooning it straight to Hogg who takes an easy return catch. 226/9
