Fall of wickets: 1-15 (David Warner, 5.1 ov), 2-19 (Ricky Ponting, 7.5 ov), 3-49 (Michael Clarke, 14.4 ov), 4-122 (Matthew Wade, 22.6 ov), 5-154 (Michael Hussey, 26.1 ov)
5.1 to DA Warner, he's bowled Warner! they have not allowed him an inch of room, apart from one wide delivery, this one was pitched up from around the wicket, coming in on the stumps, Warner lunged at it and had a big heave, missed, and the ball rattled the middle stump, Vinay is pumped up, some relief for him after he was taken apart by Warner in Perth. 15/1
7.5 to RT Ponting, he's got Ponting now, Vinay has bowled much better deliveries than this one today, Ponting saw some rare width and went to punch it, it seemed to sit up a tad from short of a length and he ended up hitting it straight to short extra cover. 19/2
26.1 to MEK Hussey, not the best delivery he has bowled today, way too short outside off, but Michael Hussey has shovelled the pull straight to deep square leg, he's given the run-rate a serious boost though. 154/5
14.4 to MJ Clarke, Clarke takes on the flighted ball from around the stumps and lofts it straight to deep midwicket, part-timer picks up a crucial wicket. 49/3
22.6 to MS Wade, inside-edged on to the stumps, Wade was getting beaten on the cut by the quick deliveries, he looked to open up and pull this time, the ball was not short enough, and he plays on, fantastic innings on ODI debut though. 122/4

TOTAL29.4 Ov (RR: 5.08, 128 Mins)151
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Sachin Tendulkar, 1.5 ov), 2-13 (Gautam Gambhir, 3.3 ov), 3-64 (Virat Kohli, 11.2 ov), 4-65 (Rohit Sharma, 11.4 ov), 5-77 (Suresh Raina, 14.2 ov), 6-114 (Ravindra Jadeja, 22.3 ov), 7-120 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 23.1 ov), 8-123 (Rahul Sharma, 23.5 ov), 9-128 (MS Dhoni, 25.2 ov), 10-151 (Praveen Kumar, 29.4 ov)
1.5 to SR Tendulkar, he's gone! Ponting takes out Tendulkar, Starc pitches it up wide, not full enough, Tendulkar reaches out and goes for the drive, it flies low to Ponting's right, and the veteran goes down to take it safely, he is mobbed by his team-mates. 9/1
3.3 to G Gambhir, outside edge and gone! super stuff from Starc, Gautam falls to a nick outside off again, Starc gets it to rear up at him from back of a length, and Gautam pokes it on its way to the keeper. 13/2
14.2 to SK Raina, oh dear, Raina has fallen to the short ball, to Dan Christian, not the most threatening bowler going around, goes for an awkward pull, off the front foot, and only ends up lobbing the ball for midwicket to take a dolly running to his right. 77/5
11.2 to V Kohli, Ponting at shortish backward point holds on to the screamer, Virat was batting superbly but he is gone now, cuts a wide delivery hard but straight to Ponting. 64/3
11.4 to RG Sharma, McKay strikes again, India deep in trouble now, short of a length and getting big on Rohit, who has looked like getting out any moment, moves away just a bit after pitching and Rohit can only fend it to the keeper. 65/4
22.3 to RA Jadeja, another one goes! this would have been a six at most grounds in India, McKay banging it in short, Jadeja looks to pull it into the stands beyond deep midwicket but only gets it as far as the man in the deep who holds on as he tumbles to the ground. 114/6
29.4 to P Kumar, Harris redeems himself for dropping a simple catch by taking a brilliant low take, running a long way in from long on, and tumbling forward to hold on to PK's slog. 151/10
23.5 to R Sharma, they keep falling, Rahul departs to a full toss, he makes room, and has a big swing at it, only to miss, and the ball crashes into middle. 123/8
25.2 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni has holed out to long off, he has been swinging full deliveries hard from the crease, he got hold of this one alright, it flew off the middle high towards Warner, who timed his leap superbly to hold on to it. 128/9
