View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Starc b Watson 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 80.4 mph, gone! First ball. Perfect start for Australia. Was dropped in short, Porterfield responded with a hook, gets a top edge and it is comfortably taken by long leg 0/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c Watson b Starc 7 17 12 1 0 58.33
3.3 84.3 mph, another catch in the deep, this time at third man. Was a hint of width outside off, Stirling through his hands through a drive and it skewed high down towards Watson who ran around the boundary and held an excellent catch 15/2
View dismissal EC Joyce c Warner b Maxwell 16 25 18 3 0 88.88
5.5 58.1 mph, very soft...tossed up on off stump, Joyce tries to go over the top but can only lob his drive straight to mid-off who was inside the circle 25/3
View dismissal NJ O'Brien b Watson 20 47 24 2 0 83.33
14.3 72.0 mph, that's the end of that. A full ball, perhaps a slower delivery, Niall aims to swing it through the leg side in the slog-sweep position and misses 85/5
View dismissal GC Wilson lbw b Hogg 5 8 5 1 0 100.00
7.2 55.1 mph, gone! Another departs. Hogg strikes second ball. It looked pretty good, full on the stumps, straightened a fraction and Wilson was trying to play to leg. 33/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c †Wade b Watson 35 31 29 5 0 120.68
14.6 79.9 mph, big wicket! Excellent over from Watson. A short ball, Kevin tried to upper-cut it down to third man and was a little half-hearted in the short which led to an edge to Wade. 86/6
AR Cusack not out 15 24 14 1 0 107.14
View dismissal DT Johnston b Starc 7 8 7 1 0 100.00
17.1 83.5 mph, on target! Perfect yorker from round the wicket, right at the bottom of off stump and hits the target as Johnston tried to give himself room 101/7

View dismissal SR Watson run out (Johnston) 51 45 30 5 3 170.00
10.1 from KJ O'Brien, on off stump, opens the face to short third-man who makes a direct hit and Watson is caught short by Johnston's throw. That was a bit lazy from him 91/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b KJ O'Brien 10 16 11 0 0 90.90
