Glenn McGrath1005215.20356002
45.5 to M Azharuddin, smacked and taken at point on second attempt! Full outside off, Azhar went for a cracking square drive almost down on a knee and it went straight to M Waugh, he got both hands to it but it went so quick it bounced off his chest and he then took it with his left hand. 253/6

Jason Gillespie906307.00245102
Mark Waugh903824.22241000
12.3 to J Srinath, Mark Waugh comes on and produces the breakthrough. Srinath dares to step out, Waugh shortens his length and darts it wide of off. Srinath misses, Healy grabs the ball and breaks the stumps. 75/2
18.1 to SR Tendulkar, Tendulkar (mis)hits it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Flatter and wide of off, the batsman stretches out and miscues a slog-sweep. 95/3
Stuart Law1006526.50193200
39.4 to R Dravid, shorter and breaks away outside off, poor delivery, begs on its knees to be hit. But, Dravid can only slice a cut straight to Taylor at extra-cover. Crucial breakthrough for Australia. 205/4
41.5 to RR Singh, wide outside off and he holes out to deep midwicket! It landed in the rough outside off and Robin had to reach out a long way outside off to sweep that with the turn, he middled it but it went straight to the fielder. 217/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Javagal Srinath1006216.20245002
43.4 to MJ Slater, The set batsman is gone as India pull ahead in Mohali. This is a straight ball, Slater shuffles across, misses the flick, and is pinned in front. 250/7
Venkatesh Prasad1006816.80186030
42.1 to MG Bevan, Prasad is recalled into the attack and rattles the stumps of Bevan. He hits a hard length on middle, Bevan looks to drive on the up, the ball jags in a touch to castle him. Big wicket for India. 241/5
Anil Kumble1004234.20281010
30.2 to MA Taylor, big appeal for lbw and it's the big wicket of Taylor! This may have pitched outside leg though, it was certainly slower through the air after the first delivery, was around back of length and hit him in front of leg stump as Taylor was through with the pull before the ball reached him. Mongia and Kumble went up immediately and the so did the finger. 155/4
45.3 to PR Reiffel, flipper from Kumble, skids off the pitch, breaches Reiffel's defences and hits top of off stump. 265/8
47.6 to JN Gillespie, slider on off, too full, Gillispie aims to slog-sweep it over midwicket. The ball sneaks through and nails the stumps. What a spell from Kumble with a spot in the final on the line. 273/9
Robin Singh704526.42144001
16.2 to ME Waugh, right through him! Robin angled it in from a bit wide of the crease, Waugh was on the move and wanted to flick this one to leg but the ball sneaked through the gap between his bat and pad, not quite on the pads to be flicked away. India have finally broken the opening stand with Robin Singh's first international wicket. 84/1
16.3 to SG Law, he has two in two, what a start for Robin Singh! Angled the ball into the right-hand batsman who flicks it in the air and Azhar takes it around chest height at midwicket. The crowd is loving it!. 84/2
Sunil Joshi1005015.00252000
29.2 to SR Waugh, got im! Joshi's been angry that the batsmen have come running at him. So here he holds his length back juuuuust enough. Waugh is fooled by the tactic as he ventures out of his crease to hit the ball hard. Gets beaten, then stumped.. 151/3
