Fall of wickets: 1-54 (Usman Khawaja, 4.2 ov), 2-72 (David Warner, 7.5 ov), 3-74 (Steven Smith, 9.1 ov), 4-100 (Aaron Finch, 12.6 ov), 5-130 (Glenn Maxwell, 16.3 ov), 6-145 (James Faulkner, 19.1 ov)
4.2 to UT Khawaja, caught behind and the crowd roars for the first time in this game! Khawaja drove hard at a good length ball that shaped away from him from around off stump and got a thick edge through to Dhoni. India have their first wicket. That ball flew rapidly to the keeper.. 54/1
16.3 to GJ Maxwell, bowled him with the slower ball! Maxwell heaved across the line so, so early that he was almost through the shot before the ball arrived. He had backed away towards leg to make a bit of room too. Bumrah clipped the top of off stump.. 130/5
7.5 to DA Warner, stumped! Warner skipped down the track but could not get to the pitch of the delivery, perhaps he came forward too early and Ashwin shortened his length and slowed the pace down too. The ball spun away from the left-hander and beat Warner's helpless prod. Dhoni did the rest. 72/2
9.1 to SPD Smith, and he has struck first ball!!! An incredible turn of events. That is his first ball of the tournament. He fired it in quick from around the wicket and got the ball to bounce a bit away from the right-hander, Smith stayed back and wafted at the ball. Dhoni went up rightaway, but Smith looked unhappy. I'll wait for replays to confirm if there was an edge or not. Smith was beaten on the inside edge as he tried to cut, it doesn't look like there was an obvious edge. Nothing definite on snicko. Smith may be unlucky, but it's difficult to tell.. 74/3
12.6 to AJ Finch, short again, pulls again and this Pandya wins the contest! Finch seemed to be hurried for time as he swung across the line and mis-timed it to Dhawan at deep midwicket, that was taken well inside the boundary. 100/4
19.1 to JP Faulkner, caught at long on! It's a good length ball that does not come on to the bat, Faulkner makes room and slogs, but mis-times the ball straight to Kohli in the deep. Will Australia get to 150?. 145/6

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 8.40)161/4
Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Shikhar Dhawan, 3.5 ov), 2-37 (Rohit Sharma, 5.5 ov), 3-49 (Suresh Raina, 7.4 ov), 4-94 (Yuvraj Singh, 13.6 ov)
3.5 to S Dhawan, caught at short fine leg! Coulter-Nile bangs in the heavy bouncer, it rises at pace on Dhawan who hooks but top edges into the air behind the keeper and to short fine leg's left. Khawaja takes a while to settle under the ball but holds the catch safely in the end. 23/1
5.5 to RG Sharma, superb bowling! "Come on," screams Watson and Australia rally around him. He doesn't want this to be the last match of his career. Bowls a fine cutter, and Rohit doesn't help matters by premeditating. Came down the track too early and can't adjust. The ball sticks in the deck a little more, and with Rohit having made room, he is left reaching with a horizontal bat instead of a vertical one. Beats him, and bowls him. 37/2
7.4 to SK Raina, Watson has two! He is striving to ensure this is not his final game! He bangs the ball in short and it springs up on the batsman, not coming on to the bat smoothly. Raina moves across in his crease to pull but ends up gloving it to Nevill. 49/3
13.6 to Yuvraj Singh, a superb catch! Watson is having a great night! The slower short of a length ball stopped on the left-hander outside off stump. Yuvraj pushed hard at the ball and then checked his shot but it was too late. It lobbed in the air towards cover and Watson covered good ground, running back and to his right from extra cover to take a tumbling catch. 94/4
