Davison to Haddin, OUT, ah, finally a wicket. Davison has struck in his last game with a flat ball landing on leg and turning further down. Haddin tickles it along into Bagai's gloves. He's missed a 100 here.

BJ Haddin c †Bagai b Davison 88 (124m 84b 11x4 2x6) SR: 104.76

Australia 183/1   SR Watson 94* (89b 9x4 4x6)   JM Davison 3.5-0-28-1

Baidwan to Watson, OUT, Watson has missed his 100 too. This immense compulsion to hit sixes has finally cost him his wicket. He wanted to pull this. It wasn't straight enough. He still wanted to pull this. It wasn't short enough. He still wanted to pull this. Ends up trying to whack it over long on, but finds the man in the deep.

SR Watson c Osinde b Baidwan 94 (129m 90b 9x4 4x6) SR: 104.44

Australia 185/2   RT Ponting 2* (3b)   HS Baidwan 8.3-1-40-1

Osinde to Ponting, OUT, a bad day for Ponting comes to a forgettable end. Hide the TVs, is the joke doing the rounds. His bowlers struggled to bowl out Canada. Steve Smith nearly muffed a catch that was his. And now he's not got the batting practice he wanted. And he's again perished to the short ball. Late on the pull, pops it up to square leg meekly. A catch for Davison now, this is not as bad way to retire.

RT Ponting c Davison b Osinde 7 (30m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Australia 207/3   MJ Clarke 16* (17b 3x4)   H Osinde 9.2-0-48-1
