In the 47th over, Scott Boland bowled a brilliant delivery which almost brushed off Virat Kohli’s bat. Australia gave it for a review but there was eventually no bat on it. In the third ball of the over, Virat Kohli edge one and Steve Smith pulled off an absolute blinder to get rid of the dangerous batter for 49(78).
