80.5

Lee to Giles, no run, leaves that one as it swings away from him

80.6

Lee to Giles, no run, that one hit a crack at a fair lick, 145kph to be exact, and Giles jabs at it but missed it by a long, long way

80.6

Lee to Giles, no run, that one hit a crack at a fair lick, 145kph to be exact, and Giles jabs at it but missed it by a long, long way

England 293/6   AF Giles 0* (2b)
82.1

Lee to Giles, no run, feet rooted to the crease, the batsman prods a cutting motion at that one which goes past his outside edge

82.2

Lee to Giles, 1 run, Giles off the mark with a quick single into midwicket and the Army applaud as the 300 comes up

England 300/6   AF Giles 1* (4b)
83.1

McGrath to Giles, no run, McGrath thunders in, sticks it on a good length and all Giles can do is defend on the front foot

83.2

McGrath to Giles, FOUR, wider from McGrath and Giles wastes no time helping it through his favoured gully area with a steer off the back foot

83.3

McGrath to Giles, no run, on the button this time and that's defended down off the back foot

83.4

McGrath to Giles, FOUR, ah. The bouncer was a good idea, but with too much width - Giles leaps up on his back foot and dinks it over the slips

83.5

McGrath to Giles, no run, ooh, more width again and Giles can't resist flashing hard at it, but it nearly takes his edge on the way through to Gilchrist

83.6

McGrath to Giles, no run, that one veers off a crack into Giles' midriff and he bends over as he tries to defend

84.3

Lee to Giles, no run, defended easily

84.4

Lee to Giles, no run, defended again, on the back foot this time

84.5

Lee to Giles, no run, defended yet again

84.6

Lee to Giles, no run, Giles steps across to dig at that one which flies through a touch wide, but his is a swing which misses

England 321/6   AF Giles 9* (14b 2x4)
86.1

Lee to Giles, no run, ooh, a good'un there, decent length and that threatens - like a naughty mosquito - to nibble at Giles's edge. Giles realises he's been done and stares at Lee, in appreciation

86.2

Lee to Giles, no run, that one's left alone

86.3

Lee to Giles, 1 no ball, just oversteps a touch and pings it in on a length in front of off; it's easily defended

86.3

Lee to Giles, no run, again that one's on a decent length and it's defended

86.4

Lee to Giles, no run, ooh, good stuff there from Lee who unleashes a pearler which nearly, nearly caresses Giles's bat on its way through

86.5

Lee to Giles, no run, a more solid defence from Giles this time

86.6

Lee to Giles, no run, defended off the back foot

England 326/6   AF Giles 9* (21b 2x4)
88.5

Lee to Giles, 1 run, worked off his legs into midwicket

England 329/7   AF Giles 10* (22b 2x4)
89.1

McGrath to Giles, 2 runs, squeezed off the back foot backward of point

89.2

McGrath to Giles, no run, driven off the back foot, without much power, into the covers

89.3

McGrath to Giles, no run, ooh, that one kept low and Giles does well to keep his wicket there, as the ball, like a really rubbish razor, just fails to shave the inside edge

89.4

McGrath to Giles, no run, ducks under a short one and it flies through Gilchrist

89.5

McGrath to Giles, 1 run, eased off the back foot into the covers

England 332/7   AF Giles 13* (27b 2x4)
90.1

Clark to Giles, no run, oh, hello. What did that hit? Giles is completely bemused as that ball pitches outside leg, bangs into a crack and moves like a legspinner towards first slip

90.2

Clark to Giles, no run, plays that one watchfully - and given the last delivery, no wonder - forward with a deliberate press to cover

90.3

Clark to Giles, 2 runs

90.4

Clark to Giles, 2 runs, a thick outside edge runs away hard

90.5

Clark to Giles, no run, ah, interesting, interesting. That seemed like a nick, there, as if the ball had taken Giles's outside edge, but it was a mere whoosh. Terrific delivery, mind

90.6

Clark to Giles, no run, defended on the back foot this time

England 336/7   AF Giles 17* (33b 2x4)
92.1

Clark to Giles, FOUR, huge cheers as Giles thumps that square as you like through the off-side

92.2

Clark to Giles, no run, left alone

92.3

Clark to Giles, no run, a touch of width and Giles is quick on to that one, firing it to point where it's scooped neatly

92.4

Clark to Giles, 2 runs, defended on the front foot

92.5

Clark to Giles, OUT, edged - and gone. That one, on a decent length, squares Giles up a treat and the outside edge flies straight to Warne at first slip; such chances don't come much more straightforward. Giles, like a simpering lover who can't accept he's been dumped, lingers longingly at the crease, but indeed he has been dismissed and he trudges slowly off

AF Giles c Warne b Clark 23 (55m 38b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.52

England 346/8   AF Giles 23 (38b 3x4)
