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
10.35pm Ponting is indeed Man of the Match. "Another good win by us," he says. "It had been coming for a while, the top order were going to get some runs. I spoke to the guys this morning about trying to get some momentum going into the finals and all the guys did that."
Thanks for joining me today, do come back for some more fun on Tuesday when Sri Lanka face off against India.
10.30pm "There were quite a few positives," reckons Dhoni. "The way we kept them to 318 was a good one." They've not made it to the finals of course. "We would like to win that game so that we can go through," he says of the next encounter on Tuesday.
10.25pm Well that's been an excellent day's cricket at the SCG. Both sides' batting at last came good and provided some full-on entertainment, with both Ponting and Gambhir posting hundreds.
Stay with me for the reaction and the Man of the Match. Ponting? While we're waiting for that, actually, in a press conference during the Chappell-Hadlee earlier this summer Ponting was miffed when, scoring runs for fun, not one of the press asked him in his post-match press conference in Adelaide. "By the way I got a hundred today, boys," he smirked, but you can bet all the questions will be for his batting tonight after he recovered his form in some style.
A smiling Lee now says "All in all in was a great day for everyone." And then that sportsman's cliche... stepping up to the plate? Nearly. "Everyone put their hand up." It's true, though.
The last over coming, a mere 19 required. Here's Lee
wide outside off, the batsman goes to cut hard, and the ball goes on through to the keeper
runs outside off and pushes out to mid-on and they scramble through
pitched right up there, dug out to fine leg
driven out to mid-off
driven out forward and there's a throw, a direct hit would have been close
Ross Armstrong, he of the bet, concedes he'll be drinking cask wine tonight
four byes shoot down off
Gilchrist, note, has six dismissals tonight, bravo.
So Australia's key bowler this summer has held his nerve when it mattered
seering yorker that was just veering down leg
Sreesanth to face the hat-trick delivery, just the slip for him
A great innings ends, 51 from 46 balls in 86 minutes and Lee's on a hat-trick
down the track and Uthappa swipes from outside off up and over to midwicket where Hussey takes the catch
Uthappa to face as they crossed
Big blow for India, these two were gaining some excellent momentum
slower ball outside off, Harbhajan backs away and cuts up high, the ball catching the outsdie edge, Gilchrist takes the catch
The highest score made here by a side batting second, incidentally
wide down leg and he nutmegs himself in slapping it through his legs down leg
follows him down leg and cramps him up, the ball crashing into his right shoulder as he tried to pull it
straight on middle and Harbhajan swings out to Symonds who's now at deep midwicket
34 runs from 18 balls needed and here comes Lee again, replacing Clark at the Paddington End.
full toss wide outside off, Harbhajan cuts out to Symonds at deep cover
There's a creeping tension already
down the track outside off and drives out in front of midwicket, Hussey running round to tidy up
outside off, Harbhajan stabs hard down to third man
slower one outside off and Uthappa caresses the ball out to the covers to bring up his fifty and the crowd loves it but Uthappa hardly takes the applause for his 43-ball effort, choosing instead to stay focussed
hey now, down the track and that is very cheeksville indeed, Uthappa turning it from outside off, round the corner and picking the gap well
outside off, the batsman moves backward trying to cut it out to point and has pushed back too far alas, Gilchrist takes the bails for fun
Bracken now, can his cutters trim down India? Oh go on, you liked that one. "Singh is king" reads a sign, but will it be a prophetic one?
India still very much in this match
pushed out now and the score advances even further
