Broad to Barresi, FOUR, dropped! Down the track, a wild squirted edge, goes high and hard past Prior's outstretched left glove. He didn't actually get a hand to it, but should have done

Swann to Barresi, OUT, Has Swann struck in his first over? Drifts past the edge and Prior whips off the bails. Big appeal and it's gone to the third umpire. This is very close. On the line is out. And he's gone, but in slightly chaotic circumstances as the big screen appears to be broken so the decision is relayed to the on-field umpire

W Barresi st †Prior b Swann 29 (49m 25b 6x4 0x6) SR: 116.00
