Australia 132/3   TT Bresnan 5-0-22-0

30.1

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, short and wide, dabbed through point for a single to the sweeper

32.5

Bresnan to Smith, OUT, length ball, in the corridor and Smith fences weakly at it, nicking through to the keeper! That won't convince the doubters, pushing away from his body, perhaps trying to guide the ball to third man ... but failing

42.3

Bresnan to Clarke, FOUR, stepped across the stumps and turned around the corner, no-one at backward square and that's four more

42.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, full ball strikes the pad, a huge appeal, surely going down, given not out but they review it, I thought it was going down, hitting in line with leg stump but indeed, going a mile down

42.5

Bresnan to Clarke, 2 runs, back of a length and taken behind square leg again, two this time

42.6

Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, got him this time! A similar delivery to earlier in the over but this is much straight and up goes the finger! Bang in front this is, he swings across it and caught plumb in front, game over now is it?
