5.3

Finn to Watson, FOUR, marvellous stroke down the ground for four, Watson is so good in taking a huge stride and then thumping the ball straight, that was a joy to watch

5.4

Finn to Watson, OUT, cry for caught behind as Watson looked to back-cut, given not out and England, who were convinced, refer this, there's a noise...and a mark on Hot Spot, this is going to be out and indeed up goes the finger. Watson stood still and tried to angle the ball away and got a thin nick through. England knew straight away, Aleem Dar perhaps couldn't hear the nick because of the wind but DRS again shows its worth

SR Watson c †Kieswetter b Finn 12 (24m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 20/1   SR Watson 12 (18b 1x4)
