    14.3 got him! A full delivery swinging back into the left hander who's trapped in the crease while trying to work this to leg, and up goes the finger! 36/1
    84.5 and Taylor breaks through with a leg-side caught-behind. A bit of inswing from Taylor, Katich tries to glance and it runs off the face of the bat, Ramdin takes a good catch 271/4
    52.6 got him! Ponting's furious with himself, and has every right to be - that was a loose stroke to a very wide delivery. A slower ball, too, and Ponting fished at it, the ball flying to Marshall at second slip who grasped a fine catch to his right 172/2
    65.2 bang and gone! A long-hop slapped straight to Chanderpaul at midwicket - he didn't have to move an inch 199/3
    126.5 excellent bouncer outside off, Clarke goes to fetch-and-hook it but can only top-edge it to Marshall at midwicket 414/7
    91.3 another leg-side catch, the second one today. Edwards pushes one down leg and Symonds tickles a glance that Ramdin takes quite comfortably and after an eternity Russell Tiffin raises the finger 296/5
    109.3 this time they've got him! A slower one from Taylor, tried to drive and checked the shot a little, all he managed was to prod a simple catch to mid on 360/6

    9.2 got him! Short, wide and flayed by Smith straight to the towering figure of Andrew Symonds at point who takes it high above his head 55/1
    26.1 gone! A break in concentration from Marshall who is rapped on the back pad, inexplicably leaving one which didn't turn but was absolutely dead straight. That's nothing other than out 103/2
    53.6 he's got a wicket! At last MacGill finds a good one which ripped from middle stump, Sarwan coming forward and edging it to Clarke's right at slip who grasped it low with one hand 182/4
    26.6 gone! What sort of shot was that from Morton? In the blockhole, he tried to smash it over midwicket but got a thick inside edge straight to Simon Katich at short midwicket. A careless waste of a shot 105/3

    95.4 got him! Lee has broken through with the old ball! A straight one, a touch short, and the batsman is keen to tuck it off the legs with a would-be fine glance, but the umpire rules he's brushed either glove or bat on it and Haddin pouches the catch. There's some doubt about whether that came off his thigh pad and certainly Bravo was very disappointed 314/5
    95.5 big inswinging yorker, comes in late, as it pitches outside off and hits him low on the front shin, bringing the bat down late. He was struck outside the off stump there as he was playing a shot 314/6
    97.1 a huge shout from Lee and he knows he's struck, the reverse swing doing the damage again as Lee pitches that one outside off and the batsman comes forward, the ball hitting him just outside as he was playing a shot 318/7

    103.2 clever delivery from Lee - a slower one, well disguised too, which drew Taylor into the drive way too soon, and the yorker pitches in line with middle and continues on to the sticks 341/8
    103.4 a huge shout this time and Lee knew he had his man, as one pitches outside off and rapped him right in line, Powell unable to get bat on a forward press 341/9
    106.6 got him this time, it was only a matter of waiting, Johnson finds the edge through to the keeperfrom round the wicket, Edwards presses forward on the drive 352/10

    45.2 played straight into the hands of the keeper, Jaques trying to work that one away with a guide to third man but got an upper edge through as the ball climbed more than he was expecting 163/2
    27.6 Bravo gets him! Some width outside off and the ball is moving away even further off the seam when Hussey gets a faint edge, pushing away from his body. A great catch by Ramdin, a sharp chance up to the sticks and Hussey is on his way 74/1
    47.3 a huge shout as Taylor fires in full and straight, the umpire doesn't need too long to make the decision that Ponting is gone, the Australia captain looking to work to the leg-side and he was defeated by some late movement in off the seam 178/3
    50.6 nudges out on the front foot, walking the ball out to the covers and there's a direct hit at the striker's end, Chanderpaul shying directly from mid-off after Symonds called him through 186/4

    57.1 slings in low towards middle and leg and Haddin's given. Replays show that the ball was going down leg, so another questionable decision, but this time in West Indies' favour 222/5
    61.5 got him! This will be the last ball of the day now, Lee adjudged to have gloved a short ball through. He's shaking his head but he has to go - and indeed it his forearm and not glove 244/6

    4.4 there's the first breakthrough, Lee puts in another short ball, around chest height and Smith opens the face trying to guide it wide of the slips but it flies straight to Hussey at gully, where he takes a straightforward catch 4/1
    11.3 and Clark gets the breakthrough. Great bounce from Clark, right on line, Marshall tries to get behind and prod it down but there's some sort of noise as it goes through to the keeper and the umpire raises his finger. 19/2
    81.1 got him! The new ball does the job immediately, popping up off a length and Hussey takes the catch, running in from the gully. Johnson came over the wicket, it climbed on him and hit the shoulder of the bat and the bowler pumps his fist 227/4
