India gave a good account of themselves in the field as they effected four run-outs and a stumping to dismiss Australia for a modest 131 in the second Twenty20 (T20) international against Australia in 2012 at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The hosts found the going tough after electing to bat as Ravinder Jadeja effected two run-outs, while Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina accounted for one each to underline the energy of the youth in the visitors’ ranks.

Aaron Finch made a strokeful knock before being run out at a critical time. Unable to get off the strike, Hussey cut leg-spinner Rahul to point and called his partner Finch for a run. The ball was still not past Jadeja and importantly was on the side of his throwing left-arm. Jadeja swooped on the ball and threw in accurately to keeper MS Dhoni who did the rest.

A little later, it was the turn of home captain George Bailey (3) to fall to Jadeja’s brilliance. Hussey it was again who steered the ball to point and this time Bailey took off from the non-striker’s end.

With Hussey unwilling to respond to the call, there was no way Bailey could have made it back to the non-striker’s crease.

Young Mitchell Marsh (13) lifted his foot for Dhoni to effect an easy stumping off leg-spinner Rahul Sharma in the dying moments of the match.

Finally a misunderstanding between Wade and Brett Lee resulted in the former’s run-out, beaten by a sharp throw from Rohit Sharma inside the circle.
