24.1

Taylor to Watson, 1 run, turning in from a length, outside off, swatted down the ground for a single

24.2

Taylor to Ponting, 2 runs, nice placement from Ponting, stays back to a short of length ball that did not offer much width for the cut, but he guided it expertly into the covers for a couple

24.3

Taylor to Ponting, 3 runs, Ponting's class could break the shackles here. He stays back, waits for the ball to turn in and runs it almost out of Taibu's gloves down to third man. You need pedigree to play these shots.

24.4

Taylor to Watson, 1 run, fuller length on off stump, Watson reaches out and drives through mid off for one more

24.5

Taylor to Ponting, 1 run, Ponting forces him with the spin, off the back foot through midwicket

24.6

Taylor to Watson, FOUR, Watson enters the nervous 50s. Stays back to a shockingly short ball outside off and sends it packing through the covers. Nicely played, and it's crucial that he keeps going

Australia 98/1   BRM Taylor 1-0-12-0
