    2.5 plays back and edges a lifting ball to 1st slip, great start from Tremlett - good sharp catch 4/1
    20 short, pulls in the air and Monte takes a blinder in his right hand diving, what a catch!! 58/4
    13.4 the frustration ends and he nicks a good length ball to the keeper, well deserved wicket there 41/2
    15 plays back and is squared up by one, an appeal for caught behind - appears Umpire Reiffel may have given him out caught of the hip 48/3
    22.5 drives at one that swings in, leaves a massive gap between bat and pad and loses his middle stump 66/5
    44.3 tries to pull, gets a touch down the leg side, disappointing end to his innings 118/6

    62.5 plays back when he might have got forward, inside back onto the top of middle stump - well bowled 177/7
    80.1 so the new ball is taken, O'Keefe has a swing at a short one and it goes straight up in the air - Australia A all out 230. 7 overs to go for today 230/10
    64.3 gets forward and edges onto the pad, flies to short leg and he is gone this time - inswing did him there, Reiffel's decision matters little 179/8
    78 nice outswinger and he drives and edges a regulation catch to the 'keeper - some good resistance there from Cameron 224/9

    4.5 drives hard and gets an edge, well taken in the gully at the second attempt 20/1
    38 aims to loft over mid on, doesn't really get hold of it - well held by mid on running back 124/3
    13.3 short again, tries to pull again and gets a top edge straight down the throat of Cameron at deep backward square leg 37/2
    40.3 short, tries to pull and it goes in the air to mid off where it is taken, very close to the way he was dismissed by George in Adelaide - might need to give the pull shot away against Johnson and co in the important stuff - well bowled Cameron 127/4
    44 gets one to turn a little, plays forward and the ball hits the top of off stump - great stuff as KP's bat isn't straight enough in defence 137/5
    104.4 short again, tries to pull, gets a bit of bat onto it and an easy catch for the 'keeper - ends a fine stand of 240 377/6

    136.4 tries to sweep and actually falls over, hit on the pad and Umpire Reiffel gives him out - it appears that he got some glove on it, unlucky 493/9

    22.4 shortish, tries to pull and drags it back onto the stumps - hitting middle and leg, ends a pretty good knock 66/1
    60.2 short and he cuts in the air, upper edging to Strauss who reaches high and takes a terrific catch at frist slip 185/4
    22.5 plays back and gets an edge low to the keeper, a first ball duck and the Yorkshireman is on a hat-trick 66/2
    28.5 comes forward and is beaten by one that keeps a bit low, double failure for Fergsuon - won't see him at the Gabba for the First Test 84/3
    93.1 aims a big slog sweep and gets a touch on the way through to the keeper 276/8
    62.2 looks to play to the on-side, hit on the pad in front of middle and leg - big shout and Paine is on his way 191/5
    62.3 shoulders arm first ball and he is gone - losing his off stump, terrible misjudgement there from Smith 191/6
    89.5 advances a looks to hit him over mid on, miscues to mid off where a easy catch is pouched - Monte finally has a wicket in his 45th over of the game 269/7
