11.1 to RG Sharma, played all around it. Wide of the crease, slightly low arm, angled in towards top of off, Sharma just misses the line completely, the bat coming down from slips, but looking to play straight. The off stump goes for a walk. Australia on a hat-trick. 74/5
Pat Cummins401624.00131000
7.2 to V Kohli, pace has done him in. This is one of the rare instances in recent times that Kohli has been done in comprehensively by a bowler. It's the pace and bounce again. Short, close to 143ks, his weight didn't go back as he pulled, and ended up skying it towards mid-off. Christian had to run to to his right, and put a slide in to complete the catch. 56/2
15.6 to MS Dhoni, pressure of dot balls there. This is a wide half-volley, might even have been called wide had he not driven at it. No feet means he is reaching out, and manages just a limp hit straight to extra cover. 104/6
Shane Watson403438.5084100
10.1 to Yuvraj Singh, Bouncer is back. Hello. And so is Watson's golden arm. Digs this in, Yuvraj likes the drop in pace from Cummins, and he top-edges it to deep midwicket. 70/3
10.6 to IK Pathan, Watson strikes again. India might even be thankful that Pathan is out. Memories of Ravindra Jadeja's promotion all those years ago when he tried his best to hit out but just couldn't. This is full, on the pads, flicked away, straight to short midwicket. 74/4
19.3 to SK Raina, Raina falls in search for quick runs. Wide length ball, he gets under it, but can't clear long-off. Watson hasn't bowled the best of overs, but with this wicket he has a chance to pull it all back. Decent hand from Raina, though. 137/7

13.3 to SR Watson, Yuvraj gets a wicket. Short of a length, Watson punches it, straight to Tiwary at short extra cover. Good for Tiwary, who finally gets to enter the field, if only as a substitute, and takes a catch immediately. 133/1
