England 58/2   EC Joyce 1* (4b)
14.1

McGrath to Joyce, no run, short of a good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Joyce gets right behind the line and defends it down on the off side

14.2

McGrath to Joyce, no run, driven away towards cover, Symonds at short cover, dives across full length and cuts off the single. This is the kind of support that every bowler dreams off.

14.3

McGrath to Joyce, no run, forced away towards point, again no run there

14.4

McGrath to Joyce, FOUR, short delivery on the middle and leg stump line, not fiery enough to trouble the batsman. Joyce gets right on top of the bounce and pulls it away to through square leg. Fine leg fielder quickly gave up the chase. Excellent timing and placement

14.5

McGrath to Joyce, no run, in the channel outside the off stump and Joyce leaves it through to the keeper

14.6

McGrath to Joyce, no run, this one straightened after pitched and Joyce shoulders arms, close call as the ball zips past the stumps

England 62/2   EC Joyce 5* (10b 1x4)
16.2

McGrath to Joyce, no run, good length delivery, pitched on and around the off stump line and shaping away a touch. Joyce leaves it through to the keeper

16.3

McGrath to Joyce, no run, and this time he comes down the track but the result is almost the same, Joyce was looking for the drive through cover but the ball rolled away off the inner half of the bat

16.4

McGrath to Joyce, no run, slightly short and angling across the left-hander. Joyce on the back-foot defending

16.5

McGrath to Joyce, no run, worked away towards gully, no room for a single there

16.6

McGrath to Joyce, OUT, and McGrath ends Joyce's uneasy stay at the crease with a beauty! short of a good length delivery, this one hit the deck and shaped back in. Joyce was clueless and in the end it was a nothing poke, ball clipped the inside edge and went straight to Gilchrist behind the stumps. That's the end of that and we are back to square one.

EC Joyce c †Gilchrist b McGrath 5 (19m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 70/3   EC Joyce 5 (15b 1x4)
