View dismissal L Vincent b Tait 90 160 113 6 1 79.64
36.5 good length ball on off stump swinging into Vincent, he tries to flick but the ball beats him and hits the pad before going on to hit the stumps, Tait gets his reward for an outstanding spell, he's bowled at a terrific pace all day and with much more control 188/3

31.3 LBW! The sweep does Fulton in. Clarke pitches that just outside off stump, Fulton goes down on one knee and tries to sweep, he misses and the ball hits him just in line of off stump, replays show that the ball would have hit middle and off stump 163/2

44.3 caught at deep midwicket! Huge huge wicket for Australia, Lee banged it in short and Oram pulled it powerfully, that man Hodge again covers good ground and dives low to his left to take a sharp catch, he's delighted and the Aussies run to mob him, they know the importance of that wicket 233/5
