Australia won by 52 runs
11 January 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Ntini to Marsh, no run, what a ball to start with! Ntini pitches on perfect length around off stump and angles the ball across the left-hander, Marsh gets squared up and beaten


Ntini to Marsh, 1 run, Marsh dabs this one down to third man and sets off for a single


Ntini to Marsh, 1 run, Marsh gets squared up again and defends on the off side, Warner sets off for the single but there's some hesitation, not a good idea when de Villiers is the fielder at point. He sprints, picks up, dives, and throws but misses the stumps

Australia 3/0   SE Marsh 2* (3b)

Tsotsobe to Marsh, no run, Marsh moves forward and defends a good length delivery towards point


Tsotsobe to Marsh, FOUR, shot! Marsh stays in his crease, waits for the length ball, and drives on the up straight past the bowler, the ball screams to the boundary


Tsotsobe to Marsh, 2 runs, Marsh ends the over with a clip over midwicket, Duminy's in the deep

Australia 19/0   SE Marsh 8* (6b 1x4)

Ntini to Marsh, 1 run, Albie won't get this! Oh yes he will! Terrific effort! Marsh drove it hard but hit it much straighter than Warner did, Albie sprinted to his right and dived full length, amazing!

Australia 21/0   SE Marsh 9* (7b 1x4)

Tsotsobe to Marsh, no run, Tsotsobe hits a good length outside off, Marsh pokes and gets beaten, the MCG can't believe it


Tsotsobe to Marsh, 1 wide, Tsotsobe sprays the ball wide down leg side and Boucher saves a lot of runs with an acrobatic dive to his right


Tsotsobe to Marsh, OUT, caught! It's Morkel again! Tsotsobe bowls a poor ball on Marsh's pads, he whips it hard but it's in the air and in the vicinity of Morkel lurking at short fine leg, he dives to his right and pulls off a low catch, that's Tsotsobe's first international wicket!

SE Marsh c Morkel b Tsotsobe 9 (14m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 38/1   SE Marsh 9 (9b 1x4)
