Video: India vs Australia, 1st Test, Australia second innings - Fall of wickets

A video of Australia’s second innings’ fall of wickets in the first Test between the visitors and India.
Ravichandran Ashwin snatched his second fifer before Australian debutant Moises Henriques struck his second half-century of the match on a difficult pitch on Monday to take the first cricket Test into the fifth day.

At stumps, Henriques was batting on 75 following his first-innings 68, and his 57-run unfinished last-wicket stand to take Australia to 232 for nine in the second innings, giving the visitors a slender lead of 40 runs going into the last day.

Henrique and Lyon frustrated the Indian bowlers with their stubborn yet attacking stand after the Indian spinners reduced Australia to 175 for nine. Offspinner Ashwin finished the day with five for 90, while left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh, playing his 100th Test, got two wickets each.

Australian openers Ed Cowan (32) and Shane Watson (17) looked comfortable to start with as the effect of heavy roller softened the pitch somewhat. Watson was promoted up the order after regular opener David Warner was down with an upset tummy.

At the stroke of lunch, Ashwin got one to jump and spin to dismissed hapless Watson, caught by Virender Sehwag at first slip, leaving Australia at 34 for one.

After the lunch session, Cowan (32) and Warner (23) defied for a while, but Ashwin struck again to get rid of Cowan, trapping him lbw. It triggered a middle-order collapse as Australia from 64 for one slumped to 121 for five.

Phil Hughes followed Cowan, unable to cope with vicious delivery of Jadeja and could only glove it to Sehwag.

Harbhajan got Warner leg-before in a classical off-spinner's style and then bowled wicketkeeper Matthew Wade (8) as the batsman tried to sweep.

Shortly after tea, skipper Michael Clarke began belligerently, but it was too good to last. The first-innings centurion was foxed by Ashwin and was legbefore by one that came in sharply and kept low.
