Kane Richardson1004814.80314020
4.3 to RG Sharma, Rohit Sharma gone early at the MCG, after opening 2016 with back-to-back tons! Full and in the corridor outside off, Rohit looked to run it down to third man. Richardson finds the outside edge and Wade snaffles it. Rohit was late to swish his bat away earlier. This time, he has nicked behind for 6. 15/1
John Hastings1005845.80336110
26.5 to S Dhawan, Hastings bowls Dhawan and lets out a roar! Full and Dhawan shuffles across off. He wants to pick it up and lift it away over square leg. No dice. Hastings nails the leg stump. Hastings has reward for hitting the deck hard and tying down India. 134/2
44.2 to AM Rahane, #MCG is so big, Rahane can't clear the fielder. He jumps out, Hastings bangs it short. Rahane drags a pull, Smith runs to his right from long-on, catches it at the edge of the boundary. He loses his balance but tosses the ball over to the man running from deep midwicket (Maxi). We saw a similar catch in the Big Bash Sydney derby yesterday. Silk and Botha were at the tag-team work yesterday. 243/3
46.2 to V Kohli, Kohli steps out and hits it straight into the lap of extra cover. Hastings rolls his fingers across this slower one outside off, 120ks, Kohli slaps it to Bailey. Looked like a leg-breakish slower one. Kohli, who can't manufacture his own pace, is out for a run-a-ball 117. 265/4
48.5 to MS Dhoni, four, six, and out! Dhoni spanks it, Maxi takes it, he feels the heat. Wrings his hands. Dhoni danced out again, Hastings banged it onto the middle of the pitch at 140ks. Pulled to deep midwicket, where Maxi hangs onto the catch. 288/6
James Faulkner1006316.30266130
47.4 to Gurkeerat Singh, Gurkeerat undone by the slower ball. This is a Faulkner special, comes from the back of the hand, Gurkeerat does not spot it. He is early into the slog and drags it back onto the leg stump off a thick inside edge. Two slower balls. Two wickets in two overs. 274/5

Umesh Yadav9.506826.91347211
7.1 to AJ Finch, a wicket finally. The outside edge has been found courtesy some late movement. Good length, drew him forward, Finch went for the drive, but the foot was nowhere to the pitch of the ball, gets a thin edge which MS accepts gleefully. The manner in which he threw the ball up after pouching that had relief written all over it. He doesn't generally get very animated after taking a catch, he was this time.. 48/1
48.4 to GJ Maxwell, looks for the glory hit, the length ball gets a little big on him, can't get any power behind that attempted slap over cover, Dhawan, running back from mid-off, keeps his eye on the ball and takes it well. It was swirling in the air but he kept his composure. Has come a little too late for India. Maxwell walks off to a huge round of applause. What a knock!. 295/7
Barinder Sran806307.87207120
Ishant Sharma1005325.30295010
29.6 to SE Marsh, huge roar from Ishant, and that tells you how much it means to him! Coming back to the delivery, it was a length ball that was angling across, good seam position, the ball held its line, Marsh nibbled at that one without any conviction, got a thin edge, straightforward catch for MS Dhoni. India back into this big time. 167/4
38.1 to MS Wade, short ball angling away, Wade looks to fetch the pull from outside off, only manages to top edge the pull, Dhawan comes running in from mid-on, settles underneath it and completes a simple catch. Wade didn't look comfortable at all. Was overbalanced too, and the pressure has consumed him when all he had to do was bunt one and give strike to Maxwell. The roar in the Indian camp is back.. 215/6
Rishi Dhawan603305.50204000
Gurkeerat Singh Mann502705.40112000
Ravindra Jadeja1004924.90294010
18.5 to SPD Smith, Jadeja strikes in his first over. India find a way past Smith. Jadeja held this one back, gets some turn as well. The outside edge is grazed and Rahane goes low at first slip to pouch it safely. 112/2
26.1 to GJ Bailey, beautifully bowled. Ball drifts back in, rips off the surface, turns square, ball zips past Bailey's half-hearted prod, his back foot was in the air as Dhoni collected it cleanly and whipped the bails off in a split second. He made it look so easy. His back foot was on the line. That will definitely even the scales once again. Dhoni knew immediately that it was out. He didn't need confirmation from the third umpire. The giant screen flashes 'OUT' and there's a roar from the Indian contingent.. 150/3
