View dismissal AC Gilchrist c van Troost b de Leede 57 80 64 11 0 89.06
19.4 Gilchrist is back into the hutch! Full in length, on the middle and leg stump line, driven uppishly straight to mid-on who makes no mistake. He holds on to it and only then throws the ball up in the air, unlike the earlier let off to Ponting. 116/2
View dismissal ML Hayden c Borren b de Leede 29 47 34 4 1 85.29
11.5 Hayden falls going for the broke. Slow offcutter outside off stump, Hayden has one wild swing, and edges it to Borren at point. 73/1

20.1 Wow what a fantastic catch by ten Doeschate! Ponting smashes a low full toss, low to the right of the bowler, who swoops down in a hurry to take the catch. Fab effort. 116/3

View dismissal BJ Hodge b Borren 123 108 89 8 7 138.20
47.3 Hodge falls. What a knock it has been. A real blitz. The end came as he tried to go for another big one. A fullish delivery, on the off and middle stump line and Hodge shapes to swing it away, misses it completely and is cleaned up. 320/4
