32.6 yorked him! Farhat goes as he plays over the top of an excellent inswinging delivery that cracks the base of off stump. Is there a twist in the tail to come? 137/2
    5.1 Butt's nervy innings comes to a swift end! Hilfenhaus gets the breakthrough Australia needed! A man was positioned at short midwicket, no doubt to make Butt think the full inswinger was coming. But Hilfenhaus landed it on a length and moved the ball away from him through the air and off the pitch, taking a thick edge which flew straight to Michael Clarke at a wide second slip. No mistake from him, and this match is really alive now 27/1
    38.4 he's gone now! Bollinger has another! It pitched on a length, moved away a fraction, Ali had a nibble outside off stump and feathered an edge through to Paine. Well, well, well... 146/4
    34.6 Bollinger has done it! Hold your breath folks, this could get tense again! Umar Amin had an aimless fiddle outside off, only succeeded in feathering a catch behind 137/3
    41.4 Umar gone! Hilfenhaus strikes and now Australia are really interested! Umar has looked nervy all morning, not his usual swashbucking self at all, his feet have been stuck, he's pushed at the ball and that has proved his undoing here. Fullish length from Hilfenhaus, shaping away and Umar prodded an edge through to Paine 150/5
    45.4 Malik has gone! Great catch from North! Oh dear, this game refuses to die! Hilfenhaus went full, Malik crashed it towards cover and North held on to a tough chance, close in at extra cover 161/6
    50.3 what a catch! Top stuff from Hussey, he caught this one cleanly! Full and wide from Johnson, Kamran through he had crashed the winning runs but Hussey diving full length to his left at gully plucked it out of the air 179/7
