    8.5 through him. That's smart bowling, as he picks up on the tell that Shaw has shown in the previous couple of balls. He's happy to drive when offered width, and this one too invited a similar shape, but was pitched up, and moved in a touch. Shaw was only looking to defend, but had a gap between bat and pad, and that's where the ball sneaks in through and catches his stumps 72/2
    2.2 there's the breakthrough! Back of a length again, but just outside off. It's a poor shot by Agarwal who gets up on his toes and then just jabs tentatively at this. Gobbled up at first slip, low to his left 9/1
    22.2 the persistence in Green's bowling trumps Gill. Back of a length outside the off stump. Gill is forced to play and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Green seems to have figured out the lengths to bowl here and is using his height to his advantage. The ball held its line after pitching 102/4
    21.2 this was coming! Vihari was letting balls go based on the length, trusting the pitch, but this one doesn't bounce as much and hits the stumps. Wildermuth was pitching it on fifth stump in this spell but this time around he keeps it close to the stumps 102/3
    24 and that's the fifth wicket this session! Back of a length outside the off stump. Rahane goes after it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. There seemed to be something aggressive about his approach. It seemed as if he was looking for boundaries 106/5
    25.5 and Pant goes! Fuller on the stumps. Pant is looking to play it on the leg side and misses. Wildermuth, after a few wayward deliveries early on in the spell, corrects the line by bringing it closer to the stumps. Playing it straight could've been better. The ball thuds into the pads and Pant was plumb in front 111/6
    31 gone! Abbott is rewarded for persistent lines and lengths, and making the batsman play. Good length, fast and stuck into the pitch around off, and Saha ends up playing at it instinctively. Off the edge, and a good, low catch by third slip sends him back 111/7
    35.1 full, Saini looks to drive, and only finds mid-on. Just doesn't get any purchase on that shot. India within a wicket of being bowled out here 123/9
    32.2 there's number eight. Fast, outside off, and he has a flay at it from the crease. Big nick through to the keeper, and Abbott joins Wildermuth on three wickets apiece 116/8

    12.1 back of a length outside the off stump. Shami draws Harris into a stroke. He looks to play it down with soft hands but the ball takes the outside edge. First slip takes it low. Harris must be disappointed that he played at it 46/2
    1.2 Bumrah strikes! Length ball, just around off, and Burns can't help but look to bring his bat down, not completely sure of where his off stump is. And it takes a nick through to Pant 6/1
    15.3 short outside the off stump. Maddinson pulls but doesn't get enough bat on it. It gets the height but not the distance. Saha runs back from midwicket, dives and takes the catch. The bowlers are sounding out warning bells for the Australian batsmen 52/4
    13 around the off stump. Not offering a stroke. Hit on the pad. Shami has his second wicket. McDermott leaves it on length, expecting it bounce higher than it did. There is no DRS for this game. Would he have reviewed if it were to be available ? 46/3
    28.4 got him this time! Fuller from Saini, and Carey looks for the drive. There's that late movement away from him again, exaggerated further by the fact that he's bowling round the wicket. Just a fine edge through to Pant, who has to dive to his left to take this low. Carey falls, and that probably means we might get to see the Indians bat again soon inside one day! 97/8
    18.5 brilliant bowling this! Pitching it around the same region ball after ball. Abbott is drawn into a defensive poke. He does that half-heartedly. Gets an outside edge back to the keeper. 56/5
    23.4 short outside the off stump. Wildermuth wants to play every ball to point. He looks to cut this and gets an outside edge. His initial instinct is to walk, but he waits for the umpire's decision and walks back. Disappointed with his batting stint 83/6
    24.2 good length outside off. Wide outside off. Sutherland pushes at it and gets an outside edge to the first slip. Catching has been very good today 84/7

    30.1 Saini gets another one! It's a length ball, around off, and he gets tempted into going for an inside out drive. Cannot keep it down though, and Saha picks out another smart catch, low in front of him, at cover 99/9
    32.2 fuller, on the pads, and he clips this away towards square leg. Conway wants a second, and ends up running himself out! 108/10

    1.3 uppish drive, and taken at cover-point. That's a bit soft from Shaw, because there was no great movement in the ball. Just a bit of width on offer, and his eyes lit up, and he looked to go big through the off side, but failed to keep it down. Australia A strike early, and in good batting conditions, Shaw will feel he's missed out on making his claims for a starting place in Adelaide stronger 4/1
    42 length ball outside the off stump. Mayank drives it in the air and finds the one fielder on the fence on the off side. He is shocked that he has picked the one fielder on fence to perfection. He takes some time to walk off from the pitch 161/3
    25 on the stumps. Gill looks to flick it. Gill whips and thinks he has missed it. So does Swepson as he appeals for lbw. The umpire reckons he got an edge as he rules him out caught. A word for the exceptional effort at slip. He dove to his right full length and took a one-handed catch 108/2

    67.2 Steketee makes that breakthrough. Just a hint of away movement from outside off, and Rahane will be disappointed. He has left most of the balls in that channel alone, but was drawn into having a nibble at it. Under the lights, the ball begins to move a bit more than before, and that has consumed the Indians' captain 239/4

    4.1 plan coming to a fruition! Shami has a leg slip and bowls one down the leg stump. Harris turns it straight into the hands of Shaw. Harris won't be happy with his shot selection there 6/1
    8.5 and Burns is gone! Fuller on the stumps. Burns is caught on the move. He looks to flick. Beaten. The ball hits the pad and Burns is gone. 5 runs in 4 innings for Burns. Will he be in the playing XI for the First Test ? 11/2
    11.1 and it looks like the Australia A batsmen are practicing hitting it straight to the fielders. Width outside the off stump. On a length. You would call it a loosener. Maddinson cuts it straight into the hands of Saini at point 25/3
