New Zealand tour of Australia, 2008/09 / Wicket commentary


Mills to Hopes, OUT, gone! Goes for a wild swing over long-on, fraction full on the off stump, is not to the pitch, the ball sails high and Vettori at mid-off takes a well judged catch after waiting for ages for it to get to him

JR Hopes c Vettori b Mills 5 (10m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Australia 9/1   BJ Haddin 3* (7b)   KD Mills 1.4-0-3-1


Mills to Ponting, OUT, Gone!! Full outside off and moves away, Ponting's fishing for it off the front foot, gets a thin edge straight to the keeper. New Zealand have struck early here

RT Ponting c †McCullum b Mills 2 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 20/2   BJ Haddin 12* (13b 1x4)   KD Mills 2.1-0-8-2


O'Brien to DJ Hussey, OUT, gone, wild swing and pays the price! Full on middle and leg, Hussey makes room to smash it over mid-on, it came back in a a touch and crashed into leg stump. Australia in a spot of bother now at 30 for 3

DJ Hussey b O'Brien 6 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Australia 30/3   BJ Haddin 15* (16b 1x4)   IE O'Brien 0.5-0-3-1


Vettori to MEK Hussey, OUT, gone! What an inspired bowling change!! Short on middle and off, there to hit, he pulls it away straight to Diamanti stationed perfectly at deep midwicket. Big wicket for New Zealand

MEK Hussey c Diamanti b Vettori 9 (25m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Australia 70/4   BJ Haddin 46* (35b 3x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 0.1-0-0-1
