Gone! Short ball from Richardson does the trick. Jadeja nearly scored a six but the ball fell short to Shaun Marsh in the deep. Bad luck. India in a bit of a bother right now, as Bhuvaneshwar Kumar comes in to replace Jadeja.

22nd ODI ton for Rohit Sharma! Fabulous innings from the man in the middle. There was hardly a celebration from him as he knows that the job isn't over yet. If India has to win this game, Rohit needs to see it through.

Gone! It is Dinesh Karthik! He looked out of sorts since the start and has now played it down to his own stumps. The game has now changed again. Richardson strikes and what a day he is having.

It is the nervous nineties for Rohit. He's really taking the game away from the hosts. Three boundaries from Hitman off Peter Siddle. It now becoming more and more important for Karthik to support him.

Since Dhoni's departure, the runs have stopped flowing as quickly. Rohit and Karthik are now dealing with singles. Yet, the match remains on the balance. As long as Rohit is at the crease, Australia will have something to worry about.
