India v Australia - Day 3
Michael Johnson
1st Test
26.4 Johnson to Tendulkar, FOUR, a touch wide, on the length, Tendulkar stands tall, opens the face and punches it through the covers. What a shot!.

28.4 Johnson to Tendulkar, OUT, and Tendulkar just chips the ball to White at short cover! Johnson rolls his fingers over a slower one, pitching it full just outside off and Tendulkar is deceived into pushing the ball to the man brought in to that position the over before after he drove four through the covers, a massive wicket and the Chinnaswamy goes silent.

55.3 Clarke to Ganguly, FOUR, top shot, steps down, right to pitch of the ball, and flat-batted straight. Mid-off has no chance.

91.6 Clark to Harbhajan Singh,FOUR, what a way to get to 50! Walk down the track to Clark as if he is a nets bowler, and flat-bat it straight past him for four. Singh, really, is king. What an applause for Bhaj.

95.6 Watson to Khan, FOUR, Zaheer is on fire, this is a length ball, Zaheer is down on a knee, and slogs it straight down the ground.
   
Michael Johnson Johnson rattles India

India's openers had begun well in reply to Australia's 430, scoring 68 for 0 by stumps on the second day. However, come the third, Australia found an assailant in Johnson, who exploited the deteriorating pitch and found some cracks in India's imposing batting line-up . Johnson picked up three hugely dangerous batsmen - Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman. The Tendulkar wicket was sandwiched between two other important strikes from Johnson. The only fight from India's Fab Four came from Sourav Ganguly, but Johnson snuffed out the challenge as he trapped him with one that nipped into the left-hander from over the wicket.
