Brett Lee1015425.40388013
40.2 to R Dravid, Lee gets his revenge. Although quite a tame dismissal. Full-length delivery on the middle and leg and Dravid ended up playing a nothing shot. Just shovelled it straight to Clarke at short midwicket. Big wicket for Australia.. 186/4
42.1 to M Kaif, And the stumps fly everywhere! Inside-edge on to the stumps. Kaif falls. Lee jumps up in glee. It landed on a length, outside the off stump and came back in. Kaif had gone for a huge drive but was beaten by the nip-backer. 197/5
Glenn McGrath1013423.40352000
9.5 to SR Tendulkar, he's gone! A typical McGrath special, lands on a sweet length outside off stump, on the seam, a little bit of movement to boot, and Tendulkar's caught defending on the hop, the ball kisses the edge and lands in Gilchrist's safe hands, Australia strike,McGrath wins this battle, crowd hushed. 46/1
48.6 to IK Pathan, Banged in short again, it's not going to a yorker every ball from McGrath, Pathan pulls but straight to Martyn at deep midwicket. Martyn almost fumbles it but holds it in the end.. 239/7
Nathan Bracken1025625.60337010
47.1 to SK Raina, Gone! Caught at long-on. Raina swings a low full-toss at the throat of Watson.. 224/6
49.6 to MS Dhoni, Bowden has given him out! There was an huge inside-edge. Attempted yorker turns into a low full-toss and Dhoni tries to send it over midwicket, gets an edge onto his pads.. 249/8
Mitchell Johnson803314.12284001
28.2 to V Sehwag, Johnson strikes for Australia! Huge wicket. Follows the bumper with a lovely indipper. Landed on a length, on the middle and it bent in a bit, Sehwag ended up driving at it outside the line and was trapped plumb in front. A very good innings comes to an end.. 126/3
Shane Watson904815.33274070
19.4 to D Mongia, gone! Lands on a good length and moves away outside off stump, Mongia tries to run that fine, opens the face of the bat and plays away from his body, and all he can do is edge one into Hussey's lap at slip, Australia get another. 89/2

Irfan Pathan704216.00266030
42.6 to A Symonds, Pathan gets a cheap wicket. Symonds backed away to slog, missed and was cleaned up.. 230/4
Munaf Patel8.406107.03309030
8.5 to AC Gilchrist, great catch! Full and wide, Gilchrist throws the bat at it but can only slam that in the air to Raina at backward point, who holds onto a fine catch, that ball was travelling at some speed but the kid held onto it like a seasoned pro, falls over after he takes it and then runs to his team-mates who engulf him, thats the breakthrough India needed, Gilchrist gone!. 61/1
33.5 to RT Ponting, Sreesanth gets his man. But maybe too late now. Again Ponting lunges forward at a length-delivery outside the offstump, ends up pushing too hard at it as it leaves him and nicks it low to Tendulkar at first slip. SRT dived to his left to pull off a stunning catch. 185/3
Harbhajan Singh1004904.90345010
Dinesh Mongia903614.00323020
15.5 to SR Watson, Mongia strikes! Tossed up outside off stump, Watson goes back and tries to defend, misses and is struck marginally outside the line, but Bucknor upholds the appeal, didnt look out to me. 111/2
