    21.5 gone this time. Shortish length on middle, Burns picks the length early and wants to pull over square leg but gets a thick top edge which flies in the air with no distance. Niall gets under it and takes a comfortable catch. The umpires take a look at the front line again but this time he is behind the line. 139/1
    27.4 wicket for Murtagh. Warner fails to time the pull well this time. Another missed century fro Warner on this tour. Shortish length on middle, Warner attempts to pull over square leg again, hits it decently though but in the air. He doesn't get all of it and goes down to deep square leg who takes a good running catch. 165/2
    35.2 edged and taken. Ireland get the big wicket of Steven Smith. Great, reflex catch by Niall. Shortish length outside off, Smith looks to guide down to third man or punch it wide of point but gets a thick outside edge which flies towards Niall who dives very nicely low to his right to hang on to a stunner. 190/5
    29.2 the pressure tells. The lines and lengths work to perfection. Pitches on a good length and comes back in just a tad. Any guesses where it was directed? The ball takes the top of off and Aus are now three down. Bailey wanted to work it behind square on the off side but a little bit of nip accounted for him. 167/3
    30.2 and another one goes. Maxwell is gone. Ireland coming back into it now. Flat and quick outside off, a nothing delivery actually. Maxwell lazily stays in his crease, looking to punch through the off side but he gets a thick outside edge, which is extremely well taken by Niall. Big deflection. 170/4

    39.1 straight up in the air and taken. marsh goes now. Mooney cleverly delivers it from wider of the crease with a bit of leg cut, Marsh looks to hit over long-off again but the change in point of delivery helps taking the outer half of the bat. Murtagh settles under it and takes a good catch. 214/6

    0.5 one good ball is all you need though. Starc gets one absolutely right. Very full on middle and leg, one of Starc's trademark yorkers. Sneaks past Porterfield's bat, takes a bit of his pad and takes the stumps more importantly. Unplayable delivery, came back in late to WP who had no chance against a delivery as good as that 5/1
    1.4 gone this time. Flashes outside off again but pays the ultimate price. Swing from a good length outside off, Stirling looks to drive on the up with no feet movement but the out swing to the right-hander helps in taking the outside edge and a good catch by Wade 7/2

    14.2 gone this time. Joyce plays another ugly hoick but it was a really good innings. Joyce comes down the track to smash the length delivery over long-off, doesn't get to the pitch though and the ball sneaks through to knock back off stump 93/3
    16.3 and NOb goes! Not a great shot with the long-on fielder in place and against the turn. Flight on off and NOB can't help himself from dancing down the track and skewing the shot straight down long-on's throat. 106/4
    17.5 excellent catch now. Short ball on middle again, Balbirnie looks to pull and gets a thick leading edge which flies down to fine leg. NCN on the boundary settles under the swirler and takes a really good, pressure catch. 115/5
    19.4 what a ball that was. Wilson cannot do anything about that. Very short, and very quick aimed right at the batsman' throat. Wilson looks to evade the bouncer but the ball kisses the glove and lobs up, Wade completes the catch. 137/6
    22.4 and Starc gets the wicket now with a good delivery. Changes the length this time, pitches on a good length and Thompson heaves at the ball but can only get a thick outside edge. Easily taken by Wade 155/8
    20 needless wicket that. Mooney gently taps the length ball into the off side and sets off for a run, Thompson sends him back way too late and Bailey at cover runs in and takes the bails off with Mooney having given up. Wow, this game has turned 137/6
    23.1 short ball on leg, McBrine connects with his pull extremely well but the ball goes high in the air straight down Cummins' throat at deep square leg. Good effort that from the batsman. Just didn't get enough of it 157/9

    23.4 full and straight and that will be the game to Australia. Young misses the hoick and the leg stump is taken off. Great delivery. But the task was a bit too hard for the tail-enders. 157/10
