    32.5 Cowan's been given out lbw and he is reviewing it. Tony Hill gave him out immediately, it landed in line with the off stump and turned slightly, it was pad first, ball tracker says that was hitting and Cowan has to go, it looked fairly straightforward at normal speed 108/4
    1.1 Warner goes first ball! That was very well bowled by Lakmal, on target in the channel outside off straightaway, Warner pokes forward and he doesn't cover the line, outside edge to Mahela at second slip 0/1
    14.6 The ball lobs to short leg and he's given not out, they are reviewing it. Not too sure if there was bat but the ball tracker shows that the ball was hitting the leg stump clean, so Hughes has been given out lbw. Bit of confusion as to what they were appealing for, Hughes was forward and there was no evidence of bat or glove so lbw it is 45/2
    31.2 caught at bat-pad and there's a loud cheer, obvious reasons because Hussey walks out! Tossed up and he comes forward to tuck it to the on side and the ball lobs to short leg 104/3

    38.5 and Australia somehow manage to lose another! Wade looking to finish things off with a slog, tossed up and he gets on his knee and slogs, misses and the ball clips the off stump 132/5
