sharp movement back in, clipping him high over the stumps and the ball races through gully and down to third man, off the inside-edge
21:06 local, 11:06 GMT Its official - the match has been called off. Two points each and India take on Sri Lanka day after tomorrow.
An unfortunate end to what was shaping up to be a cracker. Brett Lee was the star of the day with his seventh five-wicket haul in ODIs but three wickets between the annoying showers had India sniffing a win. Thats all we have for you today. Do come back and join us on February 5 (13:15 local, 03:15 GMT) for India v Sri Lanka.
I'd like to thank Binoy George for scoring this game and Nagraj Gollapudi for his helpful input from the Gabba. Until next time, on behalf of all of us at Cricinfo, this Jamie Alter signing off. Cheers!
21:03 local, 11:03 GMT Puddles are forming in the outfield. Not fun. If the special screening of this humdinger is canceled both teams will get two points each.
20:54 local, 10:54 GMT The rain is back and everyone's going off. I don't think they will come back on. Its happened once too often. Harbhajan patted Clarke on the bum as he walked away. Clarke just smiled, but then of course the cameras were on him. Symonds didn't see it, as he was already walking off. Don't tell me we will have another incident. Its raining and the covers are back on. Cue the violins. And Milli Vanilli.
top shot, just crunched from the crease but so hard that it flies past cover
short of a length, just down leg stump, and wide is the call
almost! Clarke reaches out a wider one and gets off the mark with a streaky two runs, nearly dragging back on to his stumps
back of a length and wider, allowing Clarke the time to leave it be
short again, sitting up and he gets surprises, almost playing it back to Ishant
short of a length, he gets back and cracks to Rohit in the covers
back of a length outside off, comes back in, he gets in line and defends
full delivery outside off stump, Clarke gets to the pitch and drives to cover
It really is all happening at the Gabba.
yowza! Thats a peach to end an aggressive over, as he changes the pace and pitches it up, forcing Symonds to feel for it as the ball holds its line and narrowly misses kissing the outer edge of his bat
thats a waste, as he bounces him over leg stump and the ball sails away, going over Dhoni as well, at some speed, and Sreesanth apologizes
Three slips come in
good length, nipping in again and Symonds defends from the crease
good ball first up, pitching on a length and coming in, he takes one hand off the bat and leaves it be
That dismissal was similar to Ponting's against Ishant in the third Test at Perth, in the first innings. In comes Andrew Symonds to a hostile environment.
and he's gone for a duck! Sreesanth gets his man, hitting a great length and getting the ball to lift and seam away ever so sharply, sucking Ponting into a fatal prod and Sehwag, from second slip, plucks it in front of Tendulkar at first
Two slips in place ...
back of a length on off stump, getting Ponting pinned in his crease as he defends it towards midwicket
full and wide, swinging away sharply outside off stump, called a wide
More sawdust for the bowler's crease as Sreesanth marks his run-up.
Top delivery to clean up Hopes. Ishant looks good. India have taken out two.
good ball, good leave, Clarke shouldering arms to another that zips up from nowhere
sharp movement again, this one jagging back off a shorter length, 137ks, and catching Clarke on the hop, smack in the midriff
India are buzzing now. Here's Clarke.
bowled 'em! Thats a peach, the ball pitching back of a drivable length and seaming back in sharply through the huge gap between bat and pad to disturb the stumps ... Hopes plays forward and is simply beaten by an immaculate seam position
back of a length on off stump, good stuff, Hopes gets behind to defend
