    0.4 gone! Beautifully bowled, short of a good length on the off and moves away off the pitch, Watson gets back to defend but the movement produces a thick edge that's snapped comfortably at first slip by Swann 0/1
    3.4 big wicket! Onions gets his maiden ODI wicket, followed up those two shortish deliveries with one bowled on a good length just marginally outside off, Paine prodded at it as it moved away from him, got a thick edge straight to Prior 17/2
    24.5 the bowling change works! Tossed it up outside off, landed full, Ponting went for it, looking to drive it hard past extra cover, it turned in sharply, the bat turned in his hand and he ended up scooping an easy catch to Collingwood at midwicket 96/3
    27.6 run-out, turned down towards short fine and calls for the single, excellent throw down to the non-striker's end as Collingwood takes down the bails to find Clarke inches short of his ground, Morgan was the fielder there 110/4
    45.5 Australia have been bowled out, Hussey's gone for 49. Pitched up outside off, drove it straight into the palms of Denly at mid-off 176/10
    28.5 the spin does the trick again, short outside off and turned in sharply, too close to cut for White who was looking to tap it down behind point, got an inside edge onto the stumps, five down now 112/5
    36.3 a strange dismissal that, spun in from middle and kept really low, Hopes had shuffled quite a bit and tried to get his bat down, ended up getting the leading edge as he played too early and Swann just had to take a couple of steps to his right to complete a simple catch, almost crashed into mid-on there but he had called for it 138/6
    40.4 he's gone now, slightly flat outside off, Johnson tried to work it into the leg side but was into the shot a little too early, the ball stopped on him a bit and turned away to catch the leading edge, Anderson at extra cover didn't have to move much 158/7
    40.6 Swann gets a five-for! Tossed up outside off, Lee bends forward to defend but is bowled through the gate as it turns in 158/8
    43.1 hits it straight back to the bowler, tossed up on middle and just chips it back to Shah who accepts it gleefully 163/9

    20.4 one down! The frustration of not getting the sweep right appears to have got to him, it's flighted outside off, goes for the reverse-sweep, ends up getting a top edge straight to Hilfenhaus at short third man 106/1
    27.1 run-out, blame Ponting, short outside off, punched wide of Ponting at extra cover and they attempt a suicidal single, he picked it up cleanly and returned an accurate throw to Paine who took off the bails to find Denly well short 129/2
    28.6 given! Bowled on a good length on middle and leg, gets half-forward to work it square, misses and is struck plumb in front of the stumps 133/3
    29.2 it's getting more interesting now, short of a length outside off, tries to force it from the crease through point with a slightly opened face, gets a thin edge straight to Paine who takes a sharp one 137/4

    31.4 Morgan goes! They've opened up the game now, short and wide, goes for the cut, gets a thick edge straight to Paine 141/5
    36.2 Prior goes! Hilfenhaus makes up somewhat with an important wicket, bowled on a good length on the off, pushed through straight to Ponting at extra cover, little intent in that shot, just a chip 162/6
