View dismissal DR Smith b Starc 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
1.3 86.5 mph, that's a right riper from Start. A ball and a half. Length ball, just outside off, swings in late, leaves Smith stunned, and hits the top of off. Smith is clearly surprised by this late movement 8/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c & b Watson 54 47 33 5 4 163.63
10.1 82.5 mph, there it is. The Watson effect. I don't know how, but he always tends to produce something out of the hat. Somehow. This is short of a length, middle and leg, hip high, Gayle looks to work this for a single, gets a hefty leading edge, Watson runs towards straight extra cover and claims it himself. Has Watson's drop caused enough damage already, though? 93/3
View dismissal J Charles b Christian 16 17 12 2 1 133.33
5.2 83.3 mph, more timber. Not as comprehensive as the first wicket, but Australia needed this more desperately. Seems like a slower ball that kicked at him, hit the glove as he looked to run this down to third man, and rolled over to the stumps. In fact it's a big offcutter that hits his arm and ricochets onto the stumps 47/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c Warner b Hogg 50 45 32 3 4 156.25
15.3 59.7 mph, Hogg gets Samuels who hasn't always picked the senior spinner. Samuels leaves the crease this time, the ball is flatter, falls slightly shorter than he expects it, and the mis-hit carries to long-on 140/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Cummins 27 39 21 1 1 128.57
18.3 88.0 mph, timbahhh. Cummins bowls slightly short of a length, Bravo makes room, looks to go ever extra cover. Bravo misses, the ball hits the top of middle and leg 171/6
View dismissal KA Pollard c Hussey b Watson 10 10 8 2 0 125.00
17.3 80.5 mph, Michael Hussey, what a cricketer. This is a low full toss, Pollard flicks it in the air, Hussey charges in from deep midwicket, and completes a low catch diving forward 162/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Warner b Starc 12 12 7 1 1 171.42
19.4 85.9 mph, this ball has been to the moon and back. Full toss, hits it high on the bat, and skies it. Warner runs in from long-on, sets under it, completes the catch, with fingers pointing up in front of his upper abdomen. That was slightly uncomfortable, but not for Aussies 187/7
View dismissal D Ramdin b Starc 3 8 2 0 0 150.00
19.5 86.0 mph, more timber. Ramdin backs away big time, Starc stays full and straight, and hits the base of middle and leg. Cant blame Ramdin much, but Starc is on a hat-trick 187/8

View dismissal DA Warner c †Ramdin b Edwards 28 10 14 3 2 200.00
2.1 87.2 mph, Warner is not going anywhere, but the finger has gone up. Stands, smiles wryly, and walks off. He is not happy, is Warner. This is a length ball outside off, Warner plays for the swing and tries the big booming drive. The ball doesn't quite come in, and Edwards and Ramdin are fairly certain he has nicked it. So is Asad Rauf. But Warner is raging. There was a noise but no deviation. We don't have a hotspot or snicko 30/1
