View dismissal SP Fleming* c Hussey b Clark 12 63 43 1 0 27.90
13.1 He strikes first ball! Good length outside off stump, Fleming tries to loft it over the off side, he was not to the pitch of the ball and he hit it high on the bat to Hussey at mid-off, who takes an easy catch 38/3
View dismissal NJ Astle c †Gilchrist b Lee 0 13 4 0 0 0.00
2.4 caught! Lee pitched that short of a length and outside off stump, Astle waited for it and tried to cut it, his feet didn't move at all and he ended up getting a huge nick through to Gilchrist, Lee deserved a wicket, he's been outstanding today 5/1
View dismissal HJH Marshall c †Gilchrist b Lee 0 7 3 0 0 0.00
4.2 Lee has another one, brilliant pace bowling, Lee pitches it on a perfect length and seams it away from the right hander off the pitch, Marhsall plays back and pokes at it, the ball kisses the outside edge and Gilchrist does the rest 7/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Hussey b Clark 26 59 43 5 0 60.46
17.1 Clark gets another! Pitches short of a length on off stump, Taylor throws his bat at it and tries to heave it down the ground, he gets a lot of height on it but not the distance, Hussey back-pedals from mid-off and takes a well-judged catch 53/4
View dismissal PG Fulton c Hayden b Clark 19 59 39 1 0 48.71
26.4 Gotcha! Fulton perishes. Short of length, outside the off stumpm it goes straight on and Fulton plays a nothing shot, a lame push and steers it straight to Hayden at first slip. 84/5
View dismissal CD McMillan c & b McGrath 89 133 87 7 3 102.29
45.2 that's the end of a pugnacious innings! McGrath bowls a full toss, McMillan tries to hoick it down the ground and skies it back to the bowler, McGrath takes a simple catch, there's a bit of confusion as to whether the full toss was above waist height, McMillan hangs around for a bit but has to go in the end 205/9
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b McGrath 15 32 24 0 1 62.50
34.1 and he's successful with his first ball! that pitched short of alength just outside off stump, McCullum moved across his stumps and got hit on the pads, the Australians go up in appeal and the umpire agrees, that might have struck him marginally outside the line of off stump 126/6
View dismissal DL Vettori c Ponting b Clark 6 11 10 0 0 60.00
36.5 Vettori's clever shot wasn't so clever this time, knowing that Vettori likes to run it down to third man, Ponting stationed himself at a wide slip, Clark bowled it short of a length outside off stump and Vettori opened the face and ran the ball straight to Ponting who took a sharp catch at face height 136/7
View dismissal JEC Franklin c Hayden b McGrath 18 34 18 1 0 100.00
43.2 short ball yet again and this time Franklin connects with the pull, he pulls it straight to Matthew Hayden at deep midwicket, Hayden hardly had to move and took an easy catch 193/8
