Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Adam Gilchrist, 5.3 ov), 2-41 (Ricky Ponting, 10.1 ov), 3-43 (Matthew Hayden, 11.3 ov), 4-50 (Andrew Symonds, 15.4 ov), 5-73 (Michael Hussey, 23.4 ov), 6-112 (James Hopes, 30.2 ov), 7-184 (Brad Hogg, 45.1 ov), 8-187 (Michael Clarke, 46.1 ov), 9-187 (Nathan Bracken, 46.5 ov)
5.3 to AC Gilchrist, first strike to India! Gilchrist doesn't move in his crease, just defending one that nips back in off a length and inside-edges back onto his stumps. 25/1
15.4 to A Symonds, another one bites the dust! Symonds tries to steer one just too close to the body, as it comes back in at extra height, and the ball goes nowhere but into gully's hands ... a superb decision to bring Ishant back for the first over of the final Powerplay. 50/4
10.1 to RT Ponting, and his poor form continues to haunt him! A short one bounces on him more than anticipated and he shapes to drive off the back foot, but the ball goes straight to Rohit at point. 41/2
11.3 to ML Hayden, edged and gone! Pathan strikes quickly, defeating Hayden with extra bounce as he tries to cut one too close to the body, and the edge is snapped up by Dhoni. 43/3
23.4 to MEK Hussey, edged and taken! Pathan gets his second, striving for swing and inviting Hussey into a drive outside off stump, he succeeds in getting movement in the air and off the pitch and the thin edge is gleefully accepted by Dhoni. 73/5
46.1 to MJ Clarke, gone! Clarke goes pulling a slower delivery, short though it was, straight down the throat of a well-positioned Ishant at deep midwicket. 187/8
46.5 to NW Bracken, and thats another, as Pathan works that channel to suck Bracken into a loose drive outside off stump, good outswinger, and Dhoni dives to his right to hold the thick edge. 187/9
30.2 to JR Hopes, thats lovely teamwork! Harbhajan tosses up the doosra, Hopes doesn't pick it all as he advances out of his crease, the ball goes on past his bat and Dhoni completes an easy stumping .. and Australia have slipped even further into a hole. 112/6

TOTAL41.2 Ov (RR: 3.70)153
Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Sachin Tendulkar, 4.4 ov), 2-55 (Irfan Pathan, 13.5 ov), 3-59 (Gautam Gambhir, 14.5 ov), 4-59 (Rohit Sharma, 15.1 ov), 5-115 (Yuvraj Singh, 27.6 ov), 6-134 (MS Dhoni, 34.3 ov), 7-141 (Harbhajan Singh, 35.6 ov), 8-150 (Robin Uthappa, 37.5 ov), 9-152 (Sreesanth, 38.4 ov), 10-153 (Munaf Patel, 41.2 ov)
4.4 to SR Tendulkar, rapped on the pads and he's gone! Tendulkar, already given a work over by Bracken, shapes to flick a full one leg stump but misses, they all appeal and the verdict is given in Bracken's favour. 20/1
41.2 to MM Patel, edged and well held! Bracken moves around the stumps and gets Munaf edging to Gilchrist, who initially moves to his left but adjusts to pluck a good one-handed catch to his right ... thats five dismissals for him today and he jumps about in celebration. 153/10
14.5 to G Gambhir, sharp catch, Ponting! India lose a third as Gambhir rises and slashes a short and wide one straight to the captain, at backward point. 59/3
35.6 to Harbhajan Singh, undone by pace and bounce! Johnson springs in a short one that Harbhajan tamely pulls up into the air, Gilchrist takes an easy catch and then erupts in celebration. 141/7
37.5 to RV Uthappa, gone! Uthappa makes room and tries to play a cute little dab, but the change of pace from Johnson does him in, and he gets a thin touch through to Gilchrist. 150/8
13.5 to IK Pathan, false shot gets Hopes a wicket! Pathan pokes at one that pitches on leg stump and goes across him, and Hayden takes a good low catch at gully. 55/2
15.1 to RG Sharma, and another one bites the dust! Hopes gets a second in quick time as Rohit plays the poorest of leaden-footed drives to one shaping away from the body and edges a regulation take to Gilchrist, cuing celebrations around the ground. 59/4
27.6 to Yuvraj Singh, thats the breakthrough for Hogg! Yuvraj throws it all away, clubbing a long hop out to wide deep long-on, where Clark covers good ground and cups the catch near his ankles. 115/5
38.4 to S Sreesanth, stumped! Hogg proposes, Sreesanth accepts, dancing out and swiping across the line, he misses the wrong 'un and Gilchrist takes care of the rest. 152/9
