Venkatesh Prasad1003733.70372012
3.5 to ME Waugh, chipped straight to mid-on! Looks to give him the charge, Prasad shortens his length nicely as Waugh goes through, only to pick out the Indian captain who does well moving backwards.. 9/1
9.4 to MJ Slater, steps out and reaches out to loft, toe-ends it high in the air, point and the slip fielder converge with the keeper, in the end, Mongia grabs it. End of a painful knock from Slater, just didn't get going. Prasad saw him coming and deliberately bowled it wide, that's good bowling.. 23/2
48.3 to MG Bevan, taken at extra cover. Nice new ball, but Bevan will only get one ball of it. Full outside off, makes room but can only slice this for Kumble. 204/5
Anil Kumble1004024.00333001
49.3 to SG Law, that is plumb. Yorker at off stump, gets the front leg across and looks to flick. Trapped right in front. 212/6
49.6 to IA Healy, taken my Tendulkar running to his right. A high full toss. Steps out and has a slog at this. Ends up slicing it in the square leg direction. Tendulkar ran a long way from midwicket to hold on as fine leg and deep square converged too. 215/7
Sunil Joshi1014214.20323010
30.4 to SR Waugh, deceived in flight, holes out to long-off. Didn't get to the pitch as he looked to give the charge, wanted to hit straight but ended up slicing it to Ganguly who does well moving to his left. Big partnership broken. 115/3
Sourav Ganguly201105.5041000
Sachin Tendulkar804515.62131010
46.3 to MA Taylor, taken at midwicket. Loopy offbreak turning away from leg stump. He looks for the slog sweep after making room but can only top edge this. Taken at the edge of the circle. 197/4

Glenn McGrath9.522712.74401011
10.5 to S Somasunder, the stumps are flattened, Somasunder's struggle is over. This is fast, furious, swings in late, right into the blockhole and he plays outside the line to hear the rattle of furniture.. 30/1
Damien Fleming1013923.90424040
14.5 to R Dravid, this time he's gone! Again overbalanced in trying to work it through midwicket, this one came back in and was a lot straighter. Would have crashed into middle stump. Dravid knew as soon as he was rapped on the pad that he was gone.. 41/2
41.4 to SB Joshi, loses leg stump! An offcutter at a leg stump line, there to be tucked down to fine leg for a run. But he's walked too far across and missed the ball. Tendulkar running out of partners. 164/7
Jason Gillespie1014414.40376000
15.2 to M Azharuddin, has he been given? Yes, he has. Azhar isn't happy but he has to go and the game is turning. Azhar is looking to work this to the leg side but this one nips back in sharply to hit him on the flap of the pad. May have hit middle and leg. Australia have come storming back into the contest.. 42/3
Brad Hogg1004504.50303050
Steve Waugh905225.77233121
40.2 to NR Mongia, he's found deep midwicket! Oh that's a rush of blood to the head. Offcutter at a length, wide outside off. He's been playing second fiddle but he looks for the slog sweep now. Taken by McGrath in the deep who is surrounded by pieces of plastic thrown by the crowd behind behind him who are now in stunned silence. 157/6
42.1 to SR Tendulkar, he's got him! Steve Waugh gets the lbw decision after all. Should have had one earlier too, but he'll take this one with both hands. This could be the end. A full offcutter on off stump deceives Tendulkar, who loses his shape and looks to slog this square on the leg side. Trapped right in front of off stump and there is already an exodus in the stands. 164/8
