Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Virender Sehwag, 0.4 ov), 2-7 (Gautam Gambhir, 0.6 ov), 3-23 (Sachin Tendulkar, 5.1 ov), 4-24 (Yuvraj Singh, 7.6 ov), 5-27 (Suresh Raina, 8.6 ov), 6-75 (MS Dhoni, 30.1 ov), 7-75 (Harbhajan Singh, 30.3 ov), 8-149 (Ravindra Jadeja, 44.1 ov), 9-170 (Ashish Nehra, 47.4 ov), 10-170 (Munaf Patel, 47.6 ov)
0.4 to V Sehwag, bowled him, first real full delivery, it swings, Sehwag is caught at the crease and beaten by the inswing, and off and middle are hit. This is a similar dismissal to that in Delhi, same combination: Sehwag b Johnson. Full, swinging in, gate created, stumps pegged back. 7/1
0.6 to G Gambhir, oh Mitch you beauty, another off stump knocked out, full, swinging, pitching off, holding its line, Gambhir closes the bat face, looking to play it to on, and the off stump goes for a walk. 7/2
8.6 to SK Raina, tame dismissal, but what field placement, length ball, around middle, and Raina plays in front of his body. it stopped a touch on him, and he lobs the flick to the superbly placed short mid-on. 27/5
5.1 to SR Tendulkar, superb reflex, the little big man is gone, caught and bowled. This is not even a slower ball, 131ks, Tendulkar is early into the front-foot shot, it stops a touch on it, takes the inside half of the bat and Bollinger reacts fast to take it with both hands. This was not even bowled cross-seam, and was dragged from outside off to Bollinger. 23/3
7.6 to Yuvraj Singh, bowled him, freak dismissal, Yuvraj is bemused when he crosses Dhoni. Back-of-a-length delivery, hits the pad, bounces over his right shoulder, topspins, Yuvraj while trying to get his bat back in the crease gets a faint touch from the back of bat onto the stumps, the bail trickles over. Australia all over India. 24/4
30.1 to MS Dhoni, and he strikes first ball! Dhoni is not happy! This is pitched within stumps, and there is no swing, hence missing the off stump, if not by much. Dhoni is not pleased with the call, but he was gone earlier, caught behind to the same bowler, but was not given. 75/6
30.3 to Harbhajan Singh, consecutive duck for Harbhajan, played on, India are crumbling now, back of a length, got slightly big on him, Harbhajan gets an inside edge into the middle stump. 75/7
44.1 to RA Jadeja, and he strikes first ball again. That's his five-for. premeditated pull, clears his front leg but it's too full and ends up lobbing a simple catch to midwicket. End of a fighting knock. 149/8
47.4 to A Nehra, Nehra, after playing sensibly for a considerable period of time, plays an ugly across-the-line-swipe as opposed to giving PK the strike. Misses, and the middle stump is hit. 170/9
47.6 to MM Patel, Munaf plays the dab again, Watson is bang on off stump this time, and Munaf misses. India are bowled out, with PK playing well, but with two overs still to go. 170/10

TOTAL41.5 Ov (RR: 4.11)172/4
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Shaun Marsh, 4.3 ov), 2-85 (Shane Watson, 18.6 ov), 3-90 (Ricky Ponting, 20.4 ov), 4-143 (Cameron White, 36.3 ov)
4.3 to SE Marsh, Munaf has got this wicket because he gets close to the stumps while bowling... pitched leg, going straight and the umpire Asoka de Silva thinks it didn't have enough angle to miss off. Marsh didn't help his case by playing across the line. Hawkeye says it would have taken the top of outside of off stump. 24/1
18.6 to SR Watson, Harbhajan gets Watto again, with the overspinner, on the slog sweep again. There has been some needling going on through the series between these two. That perhaps brought out the big shot, the bowl does;t turn in as much as he expects, and the top edge goes straight to first slip. 85/2
20.4 to RT Ponting, India are back in business with Ponting's wicket. He has been pushing forward and poking all innings long, this time it turns sharply, takes the inside edge, onto the pad, and through to leg slip. The crowd can feel it now. 90/3
36.3 to CL White, he's gone, walks across, and plays across the line, the ball turns and skids along, hitting him below the knee roll, in front of middle stump. 143/4
