Andrew Tye402817.0072000
19.4 to MS Dhoni, full and wide goes Tye and Dhoni looks for one of his big hits over long-off, but gets too close to the ball and mis-hits him straight into the lap of long-off. 181/3
Nathan Lyon1015015.0000101
Glenn Maxwell201718.5010100
10.6 to S Dhawan, first wicket for Australia. Dhawan tries the reverse-sweep, a shot that is on because the point and third man are inside the circle, but Dhawan has found the man at point. Still doesn't have a fifty in T20 internationals, but a good start for India. 97/1

Ashish Nehra403408.5064000
Jasprit Bumrah403729.2597010
19.2 to JW Hastings, and the traditional Bumrah yorker. In each of his three matches Bumrah has bowled a batsman with a yorker. This is swift, and aimed at the base of the middle stump. Too good for hastings. 152/7
19.6 to AJ Tye, and Bumrah finishes it off with a full ball. Not a yorker, but Tye is late onto it, and lets is squeeze under his bat. The off stump is pegged back. 157/8
Ravindra Jadeja403228.0050200
14.2 to SR Watson, if Yadav's fielding last ball was good, this is nothing short of sensational. Watson has absolutely drilled this right back at the umpire's head. All eyes on the ducking umpire and the boundary but Jadeja gets both his hands in the air and takes this fuss free. It takes a brave man and an excellent fielder. Jadeja is both. Watson is impressed with Jadeja's effort. He is bemused but he is impressed. 121/4
16.6 to JP Faulkner, a freak stumping to make up for the one he missed earlier in the evening? Wide round-arm delivery, Faulkner looks for the big slog, inside-edges it into Dhoni's pads, and the ricochet goes on to the stumps. The third umpire is brought in, and the replay from square on shows his back foot has dragged out of the crease. Dhoni's gloves are close to the stumps when the ball hits the wicket, but the third umpire seems convinced it is not the gloves whodunnit. He doesn't ask for another replay. And rightly so. 137/6
Ravichandran Ashwin402716.75110220
9.5 to SE Marsh, and finally India hold on to a catch. Marsh jumps out of his crease, gets too close to the pitch of the ball, and doesn't get the elevation he wants when looking to hit over long-on. Pandya takes the catch there. Even this one nearly slips out of the finger tips. 94/1
Hardik Pandya201718.5042010
10.5 to CA Lynn, Pandya is doing everything for India right now. Slower ball, wide outside off. Lynn wants a replay of that huge six from Adelaide as soon as he sees a length ball, but this is slightly off pace, and takes a massive top edge towards short third man. Dhoni calls for it, gets rid of his hat, and takes the swirling ball cleanly. 99/2
Yuvraj Singh20713.5060000
11.4 to GJ Maxwell, MCG has gone mad. Yuvraj has got a wicket. Maxwell is gone. The quick Dhoni stumping is back. Clever bowling from Yuvraj. Maxwell gives him the charge, Yuvraj slips in the quicker wider one. Maxwell can't reach it, and the lightning quick work from Dhoni sends him back. 101/3
