2.2 to DA Warner, caught at deep square leg! Warner took on Praveen, trying to pull off the front foot and clear what is a huge boundary. He didn't make proper contact and sent the ball soaring. Gambhir back-pedaled to get into position and judged the catch well a few yards in from the boundary. 19/1
2.5 to SE Marsh, edged and juggled once, juggled twice and finally caught! Marsh pushes forward at a delivery that slants across him and edges to Virender Sehwag's left at first slip. Sehwag fumbles on the first attempt and tumbles, as he tumbles he reaches out to tap the ball further in the air, so Dhoni, who moved to his left, can take the catch. 20/2
18.3 to CJ McKay, edged and caught! McKay pokes at a good length ball that leaves the right-hander and Dhoni dives to his right to take a low catch. 121/8
13.3 to DJ Hussey, caught and bowled! Hussey's popped one straight back to the bowler, one of the easier return chances Jadeja will take in his career. He slower the pace on the ball and it stopped on Hussey as he tried to drive on the leg side. 93/5
17.3 to MR Marsh, that is a lightning stumping from Dhoni. He collected the ball so close to the bails that he barely had to move to take them off, just a mere push forward. Marsh had stretched forward to drive on the off side and dragged his back foot out of his crease just a little. 119/6
19.3 to GB Hogg, Hogg moved across his stumps to work the ball on the leg side but was trapped plumb by a fuller ball. 130/9

Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Virender Sehwag, 6.3 ov), 2-97 (Virat Kohli, 13.4 ov)
6.3 to V Sehwag, would you believe it, Sehwag has hit a full toss straight to extra cover. Sehwag came down the track, drove hard at the full toss outside off stump and ensured the fielder did not have to move. A lucky break for Australia. 43/1
13.4 to V Kohli, edged and caught! Kohli was on the front foot, pushing away from his body at a good length ball that bounced a bit more, he got a thick edge and Wade dived to his right to hold a sharp catch. 97/2
