Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 12 Runs 1 Wkt | ACA: 156/9

  • SK Warne12 (4b)
  • NJ Rimmington3 (2b)
  • SPD Smith4-0-34-2

Warne confessed he really didn't want to come out and bat

And that ends a very entertaining match, celebrating the opening of the 2009/10 Australian International season

A final over by Bailey lifting the Australian total, and some great bowling by McKay proved the difference in the end Warne and McGrath certainly showed they still have it, and Gilchrist and Hayden showed they still enjoy the game

Clarke's captaincy was good throughout the match and he used his many options during the ACA chase McGrath wins the Allstars "shining moment" award

That concludes Cricinfo's coverage for tonight. Join us as we follow the Sheffield Shield on Tuesday, Live coverage of the Ford Ranger Cup on Wednesday and the 1st Test against the West Indies on Thursday.
