Zaheer Khan1006226.20308120
0.3 to MJ Clarke, and India strike early! Zaheer drifts down the leg side, Clarke tries to flick it down to fine leg, the ball deviates a big way after passing the bat and umpire Aleem Dar is convinced about it and raises his finger. 2/1
47.4 to JR Hopes, caught! Hopes tries to pull an attempted short ball and gets a top edge that loops up towards Dravid who takes the simplest of catches at square leg. 294/6
37.6 to BJ Haddin, Sreesanth is rewarded for a good over! good length on off stumps, Haddin goes for the loft over the head of mid-off, takes a few paces down the track but doesn't get the desired elevation. The ball lobs up and Tendulkar at mid-off takes it very easily. 204/5
Irfan Pathan906016.66267000
15.5 to AC Gilchrist, and he's gone! What a way to go, Pathan bowls one on a good length outside off stump, Gilchrist sees a bit of width and tries to hit it over cover but doesn't get the elevation, Uthappa takes a simple catch and the Indians celebrate a massive wicket. 102/3
Harbhajan Singh805617.00226200
14.4 to RT Ponting, and Dravid latches onto one! Ponting was squared up by one which straightened after pitching outside off, the ball gets a thin outside edge and Dravid at first slip takes it easily. 98/2
Murali Kartik913714.11372211
21.5 to BJ Hodge, caught! Kartik drifted the ball into middle stump, drawing Hodge forward in defense, the ball gripped the pitch and spun across the right-hander, taking the outside edge which went straight to Dravid, splendid delivery from Kartik. 129/4

Brett Lee705007.14248111
Mitchell Johnson913924.33366020
48.1 to RV Uthappa, caught! Uthappa walks down the pitch one too many times and tries to loft Johnson down the ground, the outside edge flies high in the air in the direction of point where Hopes moves to his right and takes a well-judged catch, Australia have taken a crucial wicket. 290/6
48.4 to MS Dhoni, and that should be the match for Australia! Dhoni gets under a ball and hits it high in the air, Ponting runs back from mid-on and settles under the steepling catch, the crowds fall silent as the series all but slips away from India's reach. 290/7
Nathan Bracken805406.75214300
James Hopes403017.5063010
24.6 to SR Tendulkar, stumped! Hopes bowls a slower ball down leg side, Tendulkar comes a forward a little and tries to flick, he overbalances a little and gets beaten, Gilchrist whips off the bails in a flash and Tendulkar's back foot is just short of the crease, massive wicket for Australia. 140/1
Andrew Symonds1003903.90341120
Brad Hogg1004944.90302210
32.6 to IK Pathan, caught! Hogg gets it to turn square from middle to off, Pathan goes on the backfoot and tries to square cut it past point. Unfortunately he ends up cutting it uppishly and the ball lobs to Clarke at point. 189/2
36.1 to SC Ganguly, caught! Ganguly decides enough is enough and advances down the track to Hogg. He lofts through the line but the lack of power on the stroke doesnt give him the desired distance. The other Brad, Hodge, runs across to his right from long-off and takes it easily. 203/3
38.3 to Yuvraj Singh, low full toss on middle stump, Yuvraj gets down to sweep and misses. He's struck in line with the stumps and the umpire had no hesitation in giving that out. 213/4
40.3 to R Dravid, caught in the deep! Dravid has been struggling to get going and he tries to clear the long on boundary, he doesn't get enough power behind the shot and Hodge takes a simple catch, Australia well on top now. 218/5
