TOTAL108.3 Ov (RR: 3.00, 488 Mins)326
Fall of wickets: 1-112 (Aaron Finch, 35.2 ov), 2-130 (Usman Khawaja, 45.6 ov), 3-134 (Marcus Harris, 48.2 ov), 4-148 (Peter Handscomb, 54.1 ov), 5-232 (Shaun Marsh, 76.6 ov), 6-251 (Travis Head, 82.1 ov), 7-310 (Pat Cummins, 104.6 ov), 8-310 (Tim Paine, 105.2 ov), 9-326 (Mitchell Starc, 108.2 ov), 10-326 (Josh Hazlewood, 108.3 ov)
54.1 to PSP Handscomb, caught at second slip! What a grab from Kohli! This was back of a length outside off, too close to cut but Handscomb tries, gets a thick edge that flies high to Kohli's right and he reaches up at full stretch with the right hand only and plucks it! Incredible skill from the captain.. 148/4
82.1 to TM Head, caught at third man! Not a conventional new ball wicket...full, very wide outside off, Head throws the kitchen sink into another drive, flies straight to the fielder who barely had to move. They check the no-ball and it's fine. 251/6
108.2 to MA Starc, edged, and taken by Pant Starc goes down swinging. A full and wide delivery from round the wicket, Starc shapes for a big drive and gets an outside edge to the keeper who moves to take it in front of first slip. 326/9
108.3 to JR Hazlewood, edged, gone first ball! A full delivery, angled in at off stump, Hazlewood is forced to play and it's a sharp grab from Pant as he springs to his left. 326/10
35.2 to AJ Finch, LBW! Plumb. This was fired full and straight at 140kph, it was a half-volley but Finch wiped across it, missed, and was hit flush on the shin in front of middle. Not problems for Chris Gaffaney to raise the finger. Well bowled Jasprit Bumrah. 112/1
105.2 to TD Paine, and another one! Back-to-back strikes for India, Paine trapped in front as he goes well back in his crease to quite a full delivery although he has called for the review. Well, it's shading towards leg stump...and it's smashing leg stump. 310/8
45.6 to UT Khawaja, edged and gone! That was on the cards, Khawaja had really struggled. A short delivery outside off, he went for the square cut, takes a top edge through to Pant. Excellent pressure from India has paid off. 130/2
104.6 to PJ Cummins, that's cleaned him up! It's a ripping delivery, and the key was it was pitched in the full area. Angled in at off stump, just straightens off the seam, beats the outside edge and smashes off stump. 310/7
48.2 to MS Harris, and he's struck, this leapt at Harris! Round the wicket, just short of a length, jumps, angles back at Harris, takes the glove then loops towards slip. What a moment. 134/3
76.6 to SE Marsh, what a catch! Oh boy, that's a snaffle and Vihari has nabbed a second. Marsh went for cut, the ball flew off the top edge and Rahane took a superb catch at slip. That was travelling. 232/5

TOTAL105.5 Ov (RR: 2.67, 452 Mins)283
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Murali Vijay, 2.6 ov), 2-8 (KL Rahul, 5.1 ov), 3-82 (Cheteshwar Pujara, 38.2 ov), 4-173 (Ajinkya Rahane, 69.4 ov), 5-223 (Hanuma Vihari, 85.3 ov), 6-251 (Virat Kohli, 92.6 ov), 7-252 (Mohammed Shami, 93.2 ov), 8-254 (Ishant Sharma, 95.2 ov), 9-279 (Rishabh Pant, 105.1 ov), 10-283 (Jasprit Bumrah, 105.5 ov)
2.6 to M Vijay, cleans him up! That's trademark Starc. Full, swinging back into the right hander, he goes for the drive, leaves a big gate and the ball smashes into the stumps. Ideal length, poor shot so close to lunch. 6/1
38.2 to CA Pujara, caught down the leg side! This was back of a length, down the leg side, he glances it on the front foot and gets a really thin edge and Paine moving to his left takes an easy catch! There is the big breakthrough. 82/3
5.1 to KL Rahul, bowled him! Brilliant yorker! This was amazing. It was wobbling the whole way down, threatened to come in and then dipped a little under the groping bat and it splayed middle and off stump back! KL Rahul cops a brute and Australia are on fire!. 8/2
85.3 to GH Vihari, caught behind! Perfect delivery outside off, great length, he's caught on the crease, it hits the seam, nips away, he tries to defend with limited footwork and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Easy catch for Paine. 223/5
92.6 to V Kohli, caught at second slip is it? They check it with the third umpire. Full outside off, he drives hard, gets a thick edge that flies low to second slip, Handscomb diving low to his right has taken it but it's hard to tell whether he got his fingers underneath or it half-volleyed in. The soft signal is out. Nigel Llong needs conclusive evidence to turn it over. It's out! That was so tight. It was hard to tell and Nigel Llong couldn't overturn on what he saw.. 251/6
69.4 to AM Rahane, caught behind! Beautifully bowled! Tossed up high outside off and drifting away, he pushed forward to defend, it went on straight with natural variation, catches the outside edge and Paine takes a very good catch from a healthy deviation.. 173/4
93.2 to Mohammed Shami, caught behind! What a delivery! This drifted away, pitched, spun and bounced, it just catches a thin outside edge as Shami pushes forward, Paine rises and takes an excellent catch!. 252/7
95.2 to I Sharma, return catch, Lyon has another! Not a clever shot from Ishant, trying to drive out of the footmarks, the bat twists in his hand and provides a relatively simple chance to Lyon's left. 254/8
105.1 to RR Pant, finds long-on! So Lyon wins the battle. Full outside off, Pant tried to clear the leg side but couldn't get the distance. A very good, low catch by Starc in the deep. 279/9
105.5 to JJ Bumrah, and Lyon's got him this time, five wickets for offie! Full delivery outside off, again it's the one that goes straight on, takes the outside edge and a beat catch at slip. 283/10

TOTAL93.2 Ov (RR: 2.60, 417 Mins)243
Fall of wickets: 0-33, 1-59 (Marcus Harris, 17.2 ov), 2-64 (Shaun Marsh, 20.5 ov), 3-85 (Peter Handscomb, 25.1 ov), 4-120 (Travis Head, 40.1 ov), 5-192 (Tim Paine, 78.5 ov), 6-192 (Aaron Finch, 78.6 ov), 7-198 (Usman Khawaja, 82.1 ov), 8-198 (Pat Cummins, 83.3 ov), 9-207 (Nathan Lyon, 86.5 ov), 10-243 (Mitchell Starc, 93.2 ov)
25.1 to PSP Handscomb, and strikes first ball! The full one does for Handscomb, and that looked on the cards. Full and straight, Handscomb so far back on his stumps, he could basically have walked for that. 85/3
17.2 to MS Harris, left alone and he's bowled! Good length from round the wicket, Harris thought this would shape away (or he just got it badly wrong) lifts the bat out of the line and off stump is clipped. 59/1
83.3 to PJ Cummins, and that one almost goes along the deck! No chance for Cummins, good luck anyone batting out there at the moment. It's straight, back of a length, barely gets off the surface and smashes into middle stump. All Cummins can do is think he'll have ball in hand soon. 198/8
93.2 to MA Starc, bowled him! The change of angle works. Fast spearing into the top of off stump and he is stuck on the crease flailing at it, beaten for sheer pace and it cannons into the top of off. 243/10
gloved down the leg side! It's all happening...Finch gets the expected shorter delivery straightaway, angling down the leg side, Finch aims to work it away, takes the glove through to Pant. 33/0
20.5 to SE Marsh, under edge on a pull! India are alive...a short ball, angled across outside off, Marsh goes for a pull, would have been fetching it quite a lot, and can only get a thin bottom edge. 64/2
40.1 to TM Head, caught at third man! Twice in the Test match he's caught at third man! The trap was set. Short and wide, he flashes the cut shot, gets a top edge that flies to third man and Ishant takes an excellent catch moving to his right! Great work by India. Not terribly smart batting from Head. 120/4
78.5 to TD Paine, vicious short ball, fending to the slips! And there are plenty of words in the middle. A well-directed short ball, extra bounce from back of a length, at Paine's chest, he couldn't get out of the way, the ball balloons off the gloves and is taken by Kohli. It's a bit heated in the middle. 192/5
78.6 to AJ Finch, gloved down the leg side! It's all happening...Finch gets the expected shorter delivery straightaway, angling down the leg side, Finch aims to work it away, takes the glove through to Pant. 192/6
82.1 to UT Khawaja, edged, and taken, another flying delivery! Shami on fire in Perth. Not much Khawaja could have done about that. It's leapt from short of a length, climbed viciously and feathers the gloves to Pant. 198/7
86.5 to NM Lyon, carved to deep point It's six for Shami...short of a length, angling back in at Lyon, cramps him for room as he tries to go through the off side and it's a simple catch. 207/9

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (KL Rahul, 0.4 ov), 2-13 (Cheteshwar Pujara, 3.5 ov), 3-48 (Virat Kohli, 19.1 ov), 4-55 (Murali Vijay, 21.5 ov), 5-98 (Ajinkya Rahane, 34.5 ov), 6-119 (Hanuma Vihari, 46.6 ov), 7-137 (Rishabh Pant, 53.4 ov), 8-139 (Umesh Yadav, 54.6 ov), 9-140 (Ishant Sharma, 55.3 ov), 10-140 (Jasprit Bumrah, 55.6 ov)
0.4 to KL Rahul, chopped on! He tried to leave and didn't withdraw the bat in time! It ricochet's onto the stumps! It was a good length inwinger, fifth stump line, he tried to leave but left the bat dangling, it hit the bottom edge and cannoned into the stumps!. 0/1
46.6 to GH Vihari, inside edge, loops to midwicket! Australia have their breakthrough. Short of a length on leg stump, looks to tuck it away, the edge bounds off the thigh pad and carries all the way to Harris at midwicket. 119/6
54.6 to UT Yadav, that was coming, pops a short ball back to the bowler! That was a vicious working over from one fast bowler to another. Umesh backing away this time, a short of a length ball hammers into the splice and loops to the on side...Starc has time to get across from his follow through. 139/8
3.5 to CA Pujara, caught behind! Another brute! This was a superb delivery. Again a good length outside off and he gets steep bounce, Pujara plays from the crease, it flicks the bottom glove as he fends at it, it flies through to Paine who takes the simple catch.. 13/2
34.5 to AM Rahane, caught at point! Great catch by Head! This was a fuller length but he offered width, Rahane leans back and hammers a square drive with his weight back, he hit it flat, straight at Head who was looking into the setting sun but took at excellent catch above his cap.. 98/5
55.3 to I Sharma, caught behind! It's one to go. Ishant backing away outside leg, a short-of-a-length delivery, a thin top edge as he tries to carve through the off side. 140/9
55.6 to JJ Bumrah, there it is! Victory for Australia...Bumrah launches this high in the air, Cummins settles under it in his follow through. Job done. 140/10
19.1 to V Kohli, edged, taken at slip, the GOAT has the big one! It's that line outside off that's done the trick, brings Kohli forward, there's some natural variation as it goes on with the arm, takes the edge and a neat, low catch at slip. 48/3
21.5 to M Vijay, through the gate, the dream offspinner's wicket! Poor shot from Vijay, but credit Lyon for tempting the stroke. Tossed wider into the footmarks, hits one in the middle, Vijay is aiming through the covers, takes an inside edge into leg stump.. 55/4
53.4 to RR Pant, fantastic catch at midwicket! Lyon wins again, and Australia have almost won. Pant came down the pitch, tried to heave this through the leg side, loses his shape and drags it in the air towards midwicket. Handscomb dives full length to his left, that's a ripper of a catch. 137/7
