BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc26012314.739915000
70.2 to AM Rahane, a snorter of a delivery! A bouncer, angling in towards the batsman from around the stumps, puts Rahane in a tangle, he looks to sway away, takes the bottom off but the ball bounces a touch extra, brushes the top glove and Paine takes a good overhead catch. 228/4
Josh Hazlewood351110523.0016415000
1.3 to KL Rahul, taken at first slip! Rahul's horror run continues. Length ball outside off, and the delivery stays in line. Rahul plays for the delivery that will angle in, and the defensive shot takes the outside edge. Easiest of catches at first slip as India lose their first. 10/1
52.5 to V Kohli, guess what! They have got Kohli caught down the leg side, that's twice in two innings. Was short of length, down the leg side, Kohli looked to work it fine, the ball hits the gloves and Paine takes a tumbling catch. The game has opened up once again. 180/3
Pat Cummins28510103.6012612110
Nathan Lyon57.2817843.1023512300
33.6 to MA Agarwal, Lyon has bought a wicket for his team here, just shortened his length a tad as Agarwal skipped down once more, was again not the pitch of the ball but like on two previous occasions, decides to go with the shot, doesn't get the distance this time and an easy catch for Starc at long-on. 126/2
101.6 to GH Vihari, the umpire's finger went up no sooner than Lyon belted out an appeal. Vihari attempts a premeditated sweep, seemed to have missed it but well, not really. Just a little flick on the edge of the vat as it hit the biceps and lobbed to short leg. Looked good while he was there, will be kicking himself for missing out after doing all the hard work. India lose a review . 329/5
129.6 to CA Pujara, so he won't get a double century. This is beautiful bowling from Lyon, threw it up, drew him forward, got it to dip and straighten a hint. Pujara was looking to whip this into the leg side but this one didn't spin as much and ended up lobbing back to Lyon, who took a good, low catch. SCG stands up to applaud a superb knock.. 418/6
167.2 to RA Jadeja, goes for a heave as he steps out, misses it completely and is bowled. Completely deceived in flight. With that wicket, India have also declared. . 622/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammed Shami1925823.05847000
51.4 to M Labuschagne, what a catch, finally the trap works. Rahane getting both hands, low to his right, at the squarer short midwicket. Was fuller on the pads, Labuschagne failed to keep the flick down and Rahane, you beauty!. 152/4
84.3 to PJ Cummins, keeps low! The moment he gets his radar right, he has the breakthrough. Shami and his big heart get the luck they need. India get the early wicket they want. Cummins - possibly the best of the Australian batsmen - is gone. He really had no hope with this ball. Pitches short of a length and scoots through under his bat even as he tries desperately to bring it down quickly enough in front of off stump. 236/7
Jasprit Bumrah2156212.95976010
89.4 to PSP Handscomb, drags it on! Handscomb swipes at the air. Bumrah screams with joy. Australia fading away. This is that nagging line, on and around the off stump, trapping the batsman in his crease. It might have kept low a touch too. Certainly has him playing a little later than he should have and the inside edge knocks over the stumps. Joint-highest wicket-taker for the series. 257/8
Ravindra Jadeja32117322.2816113000
42.6 to MS Harris, played on! Oh dear, Harris what have you done? Jadeja gives out a roar as Harris stands there gobsmacked. Length ball outside off, and Harris tries to play a square cut late, but the ball stays slightly low, takes the under-edge off his bat, and then clips the top of leg stump. Applause for Harris as he makes his way back. 128/2
48.1 to SE Marsh, and an easy catch at first slip. Length around off, Marsh hangs his bat out, perhaps playing for spin but it holds its line and Rahane takes it around knee-height to his left. 144/3
Kuldeep Yadav31.569953.1014113000
21.6 to UT Khawaja, full outside off stump, and he skips down the wicket to slog. Mistimed to the leg side, and that's been pocketed by the fielder! First wicket, and that's Kuldeep's reward right away. 72/1
66.2 to TM Head, caught and bowled! Comes down the track, takes it on the full and hits it right back at the bowler. Didn't middle it, more of the toe-end of the bat and a good knee-high catch by Kuldeep. 192/5
68.6 to TD Paine, through him! Extra flight and turn earns Kuldeep the reward. Full outside off, and Paine tries to play an expansive drive. The ball dips sharply, and he's done in by that. Ball whizzes through his defense, and then rattles his stumps. Kuldeep strikes first over after tea. 198/6
90.5 to NM Lyon, traps him! It's a full toss. Lyon plays all around it. The sweep shot doesn't connect and Lyon knows he's plumb. This is the orthodox legbreak. It lands flush on the big toe. In such cases the umpires project a straight line from the point of impact to the stumps. Will this ball hit it? Yes, says Ian Gould.. 258/9
104.5 to JR Hazlewood, that's five-for for Kuldeep, done with the wrong'un. Length ball, pitching just outside off and spinning back to beat the forward defence, rapped on the pad and up goes the finger. Hazlewood decides to review it. Impact is in the line, no bat involved. And it's just clipping the top of leg stump, umpire's call there and that remains out. 300/10
