Jasprit Bumrah25.476622.571207000
84.5 to C Green, Bumrah strikes with the new ball at the stroke of lunch, Green falls for a 21-ball duck. Was a length ball around off that jagged back on to beat the forward defence and hit the front pad. An appeal for lbw and the umpire had no doubt in mind. Replays confirm it would have hit the top of middle. 249/5
88.5 to TD Paine, timber. Sensational from Bumrah, went clean through Paine, having opened up a big gap between bat and pad. On a length, jagging in sharply, helped by the angle too. It's not full enough to drive, but has drawn Paine into striding out to drive it, and then zipped through in the yawning gap. Stumps shattered.. 255/6
Mohammed Siraj2546712.681174010
3.3 to DA Warner, first wicket!. A touch fuller this time, Warner once again tries to reach it with his hands, hardly any footwork there. Pushes at it, gets a healthy outside edge and Pujara takes it with reverse cups, in front of his face at first slip. 6/1
Ravichandran Ashwin2417403.081059000
Navdeep Saini1306525.00507103
34.2 to WJ Pucovski, one debutant gets another. Full and fast, Pucovski moved across and looked to flick it away. His head though was falling over and he missed it altogether. No inside edge. Labuschagne is having a chat with him but no review taken and Pucovski's maiden Test innings comes to an end. The impact was umpire's call and it would have gone on to hit off and middle. 106/2
101.5 to MA Starc, and the plan has eventually paid off. Another short of length delivery outside off, Starc cannot resist the temptation of another pull but this time it's a top edge and Gill runs a couple of steps forward and to his left and settles under it. 310/8
Ravindra Jadeja1836243.44818002
70.5 to M Labuschagne, taken at slip. That's a wicket out of nowhwere almost, because Labuschagne was looking so comfortable. Length ball on off stump, he was going back and making room - he's been doing that - to punch through the offside but the ball bounced a bit more than he would have expected perhaps and took a thick edge. Rahane at slip is alert and pulls off a smart catch, low to his right.. 206/3
76.5 to MS Wade, Oh Matthew Wade! What have you done! Not much different from one of his earlier dismissals - against Ashwin - in the series. Uses his feet and looks to chip it towards midwicket but the ball stops at him, takes the leading edge and goes aerial towards mid-on. Bumrah pedals back there and takes it comfortably. 232/4
94.4 to PJ Cummins, cleaned him up. Jadeja gave this one a lot of air, and got the flight perfect, ended up almost yorking Cummins, who played all around it. Seemed to lose it in the flight almost and was late to react. stumps broken. Jadeja's having quite a day. 278/7
102.4 to NM Lyon, another full delivery gets Jadeja a wicket. This time it hits Lyon full on the shoe and the umpire had no hesitation in giving him out lbw. He reviews immediately but that's more in hope than anything else. No bat involved there, the impact is in line and Lyon is already near the boundary line as the third umpire asks for the Hawk-Eye. Would have crashed into middle and leg. 315/9

Mitchell Starc1976113.21908002
94.5 to NA Saini, this is like catching practice. Similar short ball like two balls ago from Starc, Saini is cramped up and hands a dolly to short cover. 210/8
Josh Hazlewood21104322.041106010
26.6 to RG Sharma, chips it back to the bowler. Slightly anticlimactic end to the opening stand. Rohit's too early into the push and ends up popping it back. Good reflexes by Hazlewood to grab it in his follow through. Fairly simple grab, with the ball not travelling fast and coming straight at him.. 70/1
87.4 to RR Pant, taken at first slip. Pant has not been his normal self since that blow to the forearm, and is drawn into another expansive drive to a full ball outside off. Edge flies to Warner's left at first slip, and he holds on. Important breakthrough for Australia, with the new ball. 195/5
Pat Cummins21.4102941.331163000
32.1 to Shubman Gill, And there, we have jinxed him it seems. A length ball outside off, Gill pushes at it, with hard hands it looks like as the ball goes low to Green's left at gully, who dives and gets both hands to it. 85/2
54.4 to AM Rahane, he's chopped on. Pat Cummins, as he does so often, has produced something. Back of a length outside off, and jagged in appreciably. Too close to cut, which is what Rahane was looking to do, and didn't bounce as much as he expected it to either. Ends up getting the bottom edge of the bat to crash into the stumps. 117/3
88.2 to CA Pujara, jaffa and Pujara is caught behind. Back of a length, and he put some shoulder into that as he got it to bounce appreciably. Pujara has been so good at not letting his hands follow the ball but there was nothing much he could do about this. Tries to rise up with it to defend but the ball takes a thin edge off the shoulder of the bat and goes to Paine. Magnificent bowling by Cummins. 195/6
100.4 to Mohammed Siraj, It's a length delivery that's close to the stumps, and it's actually been given out because Australia believe there was an edge. Wasn't much of an appeal there but he was given out almost immediately. India review and Snicko confirms there was an outside edge as Siraj tried to poke after backing away a bit. 244/10

Jasprit Bumrah2146813.2310011100
86.6 to C Green, and now the length ball, nipping in, Green stepping away to thrash it again, but is beaten. Or is he? Saha's gone up in spontaneous appeal and the umpire has given it. Green takes a pause and then reviews. There is a spike as the ball passes bat, and it does look like it took a feather of an inside edge, so Green's entertaining knock ends. Bumrah has some reward at last, having bowled his heart out.. 312/6
Mohammed Siraj2559013.601086401
5.5 to WJ Pucovski, gets the outside edge. Superb ball, not much Pucovski could do. Banged in on a hard length and gets it to move appreciably away. Pucovski shaping to defend but the ball kisses the outside edge and Saha dives to his right to hold on.. 16/1
Navdeep Saini1625423.37728002
46.1 to M Labuschagne, caught down the leg side. A length ball angling down, Labuschagne goes for the glance but it's a touch away from him and he can manage only an edge and Saha dives full length to his left to pouch it with both hands. 138/3
48.6 to MS Wade, he's poked it through to the keeper. Squared him up with the angle coming into him and the ball straightening a touch, got extra bounce too and Wade follows this back of length ball outside off with his hands. Tried to pull away but wasn't quick enough and feathers an edge for a straightforward catch to Saha. Some cheer for Saini now, in what has been a tough initiation to Test cricket. 148/4
Ravichandran Ashwin2519523.809410000
9.2 to DA Warner, he's trapped him lbw but Warner wants to review this, almost immediately. Was floated up on a length and going straight on, Warner went for the slog-sweep. The ball wasn't full enough for it, so he misses it entirely and is struck on the back leg. Hawkeye says umpire's call on impact, so Warner will have to be on his way. Ashwin has had the wood over him historically, and does it again.. 35/2
67.4 to SPD Smith, a big appeal for lbw Denied but India want to review this. Tossed up around off on a length, Smith came on the front foot to defend but missed as the ball turned. Was there an inside edge? No spike there and it hits the knee roll in the line of the stumps. Would have gone on to hit the leg stick. India find a wicket from nowehere. Smith isn't happy with himself. 208/5

Mitchell Starc2266603.001039002
Josh Hazlewood26123921.501354001
22.1 to Shubman Gill, loud and sustained appeal for caught behind and the umpire gives it. Gill reviews immediately. Good bowling, in the channel and drawing the poke. There is a mark on hotspot and a visible deviation too, so Gill will have to go. Bowled from slightly wide of the crease, pitches on off and straightens a touch. Did just enough to kiss the outside edge.. 71/1
88.2 to CA Pujara, cleans him up. A length ball around off, Pujara was expecting it to come in with the angle but it holds its line. He looks to defend but ends up playing inside the line and is bowled. Is that the game?. 272/5
Pat Cummins2667212.7612612002
30.2 to RG Sharma, he's been caught at backward square leg. Rohit will be filthy with himself for that dismissal. Not perfectly directed short ball from Cummins, but he's bowled enough great ones to have earned that wicket. Rohit takes him on with the pull, connects too well perhaps and Starc's waiting at the boundary, holds on safely.. 92/2
Nathan Lyon461711422.4722714300
35.4 to AM Rahane, got him at short leg. Australia have their early breakthrough and it's a big one. Rahane was coming on the front foot to defend, Lyon bowled this on the perfect length so that Rahane couldn't get to the pitch even with a full stretch. Pitches outside off, turns enough to just get the inside edge and flies straight to short leg, who holds on.. 102/3
79.1 to RR Pant, live by the sword, die by it. Lyon has got his man. He had five men back on the boundary. Pant, undeterred, danced down the track again. But Lyon got this a mite wider and Pant loses his shape trying to thrash it over cover, ends up splicing it to gully. Brings to a close an endlessly entertaining knock. 250/4
