View dismissal H Patel c Johnson b Watson 54 58 45 5 3 120.00
11.3 78.4 mph, finally Hiral's adventurous innings is over, he went for the slash to a short and wide delivery, got on his toes to counter the bounce, but got it high in the air, and safely down to Mitch on the third man boundary who takes it cleanly, but what a knock from the kid 82/2
View dismissal JM Davison c †Haddin b Lee 14 19 12 3 0 116.66
3.5 75.5 mph, that will do for Lee, and that will be the end of John Davison for one final time, the slow bouncer from Brett, got Davison in an awkward position as he tried to go for the hook, the ball took the glove and lobbed away to Haddin who pouched it 41/1
View dismissal ZE Surkari b Tait 34 130 69 2 0 49.27
30.4 91.3 mph, bowled 'em, 147.1 kph fuller one outside off stump, he had been stung by that blow the previous delivery and went for the ambitious cover drive, got an inside edge that clattered on to the stumps 157/5
View dismissal A Bagai*† c †Haddin b Tait 39 74 55 6 0 70.90
28.2 85.4 mph, that will do, Tait finally has a wicket, another short and wide enough, Bagai went flailing at it, had to reach out for it, and got a thick edge which Haddin took easily, thrown it away really, he was looking in control 150/3
View dismissal AS Hansra c Lee b Krejza 3 8 4 0 0 75.00
29.6 50.1 mph, Krejza gets reward for tossing the ball up, he went for the big one down the ground, but with the turn Krejza is getting, got it in the air for Lee to take a fine low catch running in from long on, mid off was in the circle, but the turn did Hansra in 157/4
View dismissal Rizwan Cheema b Lee 2 12 2 0 0 100.00
31.3 71.4 mph, Lee with the broadest of smiles, 115.1 kph, what a comedown in pace, super slower one, bang on middle stump, Cheema had no clue about it, doesn't help it the normal pace is around 145, plays all over it too early, and the ball takes out middle stump 161/6
View dismissal NR Kumar c Tait b Johnson 7 26 18 0 0 38.88
36.3 86.7 mph, Nitish has had enough of all this searching examination from the quicks, he gets a fuller one and tries to lift it back over Johnson's head, but only gets it high in the air for mid off to settle under it 169/7
View dismissal K Whatham b Lee 18 57 41 2 0 43.90
45.4 90.3 mph, 145.5 kph high full toss gets Lee his fourth, Whatham backed away to the leg side, and looked to have a go at it, but it was too quick for him, and took out the stumps off the inside edge 211/10
View dismissal HS Baidwan c Ponting b Krejza 17 17 14 3 0 121.42
41.2 48.8 mph, Krejza gets him this time, got him to charge down the track and have a big heave, the ball went miles in the air, enough for both Smith and Ponting to go for the catch, Ponting it is who takes it cleanly in the end, just brushes into Smith who was hanging around, and then bangs the ball in to the ground in anger 195/8
View dismissal WD Balaji Rao b Lee 5 10 12 0 0 41.66
43.6 88.8 mph, Lee gets one on the stumps, and shatters them, from round the wicket with that angle, Balaji looked to flick it, but played all around it, 204/9

View dismissal SR Watson c Osinde b Baidwan 94 129 90 9 4 104.44
29.3 78.2 mph, 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. 185/2
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Bagai b Davison 88 124 84 11 2 104.76
28.5 53.0 mph, 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. 183/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Davison b Osinde 7 30 15 0 0 46.66
34.2 74.7 mph, 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. 207/3
