  Australia innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Matsikenyeri b Chigumbura 4 9 6 0 0 66.66
2.2 short and Gilchrist goes for the pull ... but miscues it horribly! The ball spirals into the dank Newlands heavens and midwicket pouches a comfortable catch! Australia, in their first competitive match since the World Cup final, are in something resembling disarray ... 12/2
View dismissal ML Hayden c †Taylor b Chigumbura 4 2 2 1 0 200.00
0.4 would you believe it! Outside off, nipping away off the seam in the damp conditions, and Hayden's massive swipe finds only the thinnest of edges! Jubilation for the Zimbabweans, and the first wicket is down 7/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Chigumbura b Brent 8 14 15 1 0 53.33
3.6 well well well well ... Ponting uses his feet again, and this time he perishes! A wild swing finds only an outside edge, and after an eternity third man steadies himself to claim a massive wicket! Australia, officially, are in strife. 19/3
View dismissal A Symonds st †Taylor b Masakadza 33 40 25 4 0 132.00
13.4 sharp work from Brendan Taylor as Symonds slipped moving forward while looking to cut. Forget the replays, Symonds looked immediately worried - and so he should have done 86/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Sibanda) 15 20 23 1 0 65.21
9.2 from Chibhabha, Sibanda pulls off a brilliant direct hit from point, and Hussey is on his way! That's a massive wicket. He dropped the ball into the off side and set off for the run, but was sent back as Sibanda swooped and hit with one stump to aim at 48/4
BJ Hodge not out 35 36 22 2 2 159.09
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Chigumbura b Utseya 6 7 12 0 0 50.00
16.2 pulls that from outside off, up in the air swirling away to the right of Chigumbura who runs round - and he has to be quick - to meet the ball out towards long-on 102/6
View dismissal B Lee b Brent 13 6 7 1 1 185.71
18.1 crashes a huge inside edge back onto the sticks, sending the off stump - and Lee - on their way 119/7
View dismissal MG Johnson run out (Brent/†Taylor) 9 5 5 1 0 180.00
19.3 Chigumbura to Hodge, scramble for a single down to third man, but a fast return and is sent on his way through a stunning run-out from Taylor, almost ten-pin bowling down the one stick he had to aim at (throwing with his gloved hand) 134/8
View dismissal NW Bracken c Sibanda b Chigumbura 4 1 3 0 0 133.33
19.6 chipped out to the man at deep cover and the innings ends with a catch - and so a dot 138/9

View dismissal V Sibanda c †Gilchrist b Bracken 23 16 15 5 0 153.33
3.5 in the slot for a swing, but Sibanda's gone this time! A bit of lift and away-movement, and Gilchrist behind the stumps takes a comfortable catch. Still, Sibanda has done his bit. He's given his team the start they needed ... 31/1
BRM Taylor not out 60 80 45 4 2 133.33
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c †Gilchrist b Clark 15 13 14 3 0 107.14
6.6 that's a massive steepler - it's gone straight up in the air and almost tops out above the Newlands lights. Any man on the field could have claimed it, but Gilchrist with the gloves steps forward, and is a very relieved man to end that mini-onslaught 54/2
View dismissal T Taibu c †Gilchrist b Johnson 0 3 6 0 0 0.00
7.6 no width at all this time. That was a perfect lifter on middle stump and seaming away to boot. Taibu feathers a limp defensive stroke to the keeper, and Australia are starting to assert themselves at last. 55/3
View dismissal S Matsikenyeri c †Gilchrist b Clark 3 11 8 0 0 37.50
10.5 goes to hook, a huge top-edge goes high and back down into Gilchrist's hands - the keeper didn't have to do too much there, just hold on 70/4
View dismissal H Masakadza lbw b Lee 27 28 2 0 96.42
18.3 dangerous shot - sounded like an edge but there wasn't - Masakadza trying the sweep and paying for it. You don't get plumber and that wasn't a tough decision 123/5
