    1.3 caught behind! And what a loose shot from Petersen. He reached off the front foot for a good length ball that pitched outside off and seamed away from him, Petersen was driving a long way away from his body and nicked it to Wade 6/1
    20.5 caught at gully, and look at Pattinson go! Smith drives hard at a fuller ball outside off stump and gets a thick outside edge that flies low and to Quiney's right, he takes his second good catch of the match. Pattinson's won his battle with slip 55/2
    32.5 caught at short cover! Siddle bowls a length ball outside off, Amla leans forward to drive and hits it straight to Hussey, who catches it at knee height, a loose shot really 102/3
    48.5 Lyon has a wicket, Clarke's taken a sharp catch at first slip! Kallis pushed forward to defend at one that slid across him from round the wicket and edged it. Clarke took the catch low to his right, near his boot 129/4
    not out
    62.6 lbw! Asad Rauf takes an age to raise his finger, but Rudolph has reviewed the decision. Lyon pitches outside off and angles the ball into the left-hander, Rudolph comes forward to defend but plays outside the line of the ball and is hit on the back pad. That hit the pad just in line and would have gone on to hit the sumps. That will stay out. Rudolph has to go 165/5

Match Notes

  • The Gabba boy

    If you want to know what Brisbane's cricket culture is like, you've got to talk to Ian Healy

  • Clarke considers all-pace attack

    Mitchell Starc and Ben Hilfenhaus may both be included in a four-man pace attack at the Gabba as the pitch maintained its green tinge on Thursday
