Siraj and Ashwin leave Australia in a mess


Aus 164-7 (67 ovs) vs India

Ashwin makes it worse for Australia with the wicket of Paine. The Australia captain is caught by Vihari at backward short leg for 13 as the hosts slip to 155 for seven.

Paine falls in the trap perfectly as he tries to clip Ashwin through the leg side but gets a thick inside edge and Vihari does well to take a low catch.

Siraj continues from the other end as India look to finish off Australia as soon as possible.

Pat Cummins defends the first two balls before he takes a single on the leg side to get off the mark. A watchful Mitchell Starc plays out the rest of the over with caution to end another good over from Siraj.

Ashwin continues as Cummins offers no shot to the first ball and defends the next. He gets one to turn sharply as Cummins is beaten and hit on the body before he comes down and taps Ashwin on the off-side before defending the last ball.

Bumrah is back into the attack. Starc gets the second ball through the covers for a single before Cummins ducks under a quick bouncer and then picks one on the leg side.

Bumrah goes for the yorker but fails to find the proper length as Starc clips the overpitched delivery through midwicket for a four. He looks to smash the next ball down the ground but gets a thick outside edge past gully for a couple.

Ashwin bowls a tight over from the other end, with a maiden over to Cummins, who is happy to play out the off-spinner.
