Ishant Sharma1006516.50265110

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Brett Lee9.115856.32357123
0.5 to SR Tendulkar, got 'em! big wicket for Lee, fires on into middle and leg, Tendulkar tries to swish across the line but can't make contact, huge appeal from Lee and the umpire, after thinking for a while, gives it out, he's on his way here and that was a big one for Lee. 3/1
30.3 to MS Dhoni, an outside edge, and gone! Good bowling change from Ponting, Dohnie prodding forward away from the body as Lee cuts in well on a good length. 149/5
47.4 to Harbhajan Singh, slower ball outside off, Harbhajan backs away and cuts up high, the ball catching the outsdie edge, Gilchrist takes the catch. 290/8
47.5 to RV Uthappa, down the track and Uthappa swipes from outside off up and over to midwicket where Hussey takes the catch. 290/9
49.1 to I Sharma, the yorker zeros in on off, Sharma's too late on it and watches his stumps castle. Terrific bowling from Lee, those no-balls apart ahem, and he ends with five. 299/10
Nathan Bracken1005315.30316010
9.1 to RG Sharma, fantastic ball to get a big wicket, short of a length, angled across the right-hander, takes the edge and Gilchrist does the rest, he was fishing aimlessly there and Bracken sent down a beauty, good pace and subtle movement, India slip further. 46/3
Stuart Clark1005525.50336040
8.4 to V Sehwag, edged and taken! short of a length and he tries to turn it to third man, faint edge and Gilchrist takes a good low catch, big appeal and it's given immediately, India in trouble here, replays showed there was a thin edge. 45/2
10.2 to Yuvraj Singh, but gone this time! Yuvraj walks as Clark pushes that one across him and he looks to crouch into a cut but fishes only through to the keeper. 51/4
James Hopes602714.50170000
44.5 to IK Pathan, outside off, good length, a lap sweep and he picks out Bracken on the 45. 257/7
Brad Hogg906216.88204101
39.1 to G Gambhir, big loop outside off and Hogg forces his way through as Gambhir goes to sweep to leg, Gilchrist taking the stumps with some sharp keeping. 216/6
