View dismissal RJ Quiney c Edwards b Bollinger 7 9 9 0 1 77.77
1.6 he spotted the slower ball when he hit the six, this time he doesn't. Bollinger pitches it on the leg stump. Quiney is looking to go leg side again and is early into the shot as he gets a leading edge to mid-off where Edwards takes the catch 10/1
View dismissal MS Wade c Coyte b Doran 14 29 14 1 0 100.00

View dismissal DJ Hussey run out (Warner/Gayle) 52 31 27 3 3 192.59
13.5 Gayle to Voges, Hussey is run-out! Fuller ball on the off stump. Voges pushes it to long-on. Hussey calls him for a non-existent couple. He puts his head down and runs to the bowler's end. Turns out that it is not enough as the throw is right on top of the stumps. Gayle colledts the ball and whips the bails off 107/5

View dismissal CH Gayle b Faulkner 4 5 4 1 0 100.00
0.6 and the roar gets higher as Faulkner deceives Gayle with a slower ball. He comes down the track and looks to loft it away. He is beaten by the slower ball. He looks to defend it but the ball is past the bottom edge. He looks back to see the stumps shattered and the fielders are ecstatic 6/1

3.3 good length ball outside the off stump and Khwaja is coming down the track as the ball was bowled. He chases the ball and gets a faint outside edge back to the keeper. More joy for the crowd at the G. They are raising up some noise in there 25/2
View dismissal DLR Smith c Voges b Wright 21 24 24 3 0 87.50
9.3 short ball outside the off stump. Smith comes down the track and slices the short ball straight into the waiting hands of Adam Voges at sweeper cover. Warner doing the running now. Memories of Hobart, anyone 69/3
