    0.1 golden for Vincent as he top-edges a hook straight down Gilchrist's throat 0/1
    4.3 the second wicket falls much the same as the first, another top-edged pull off Lee, with Gilchrist running round to his left and waiting for a while before pouching while shouting "Got him!" 21/2
    6.1 ...pretty well as it happens, getting a wicket first ball as that's chased round to Gilchrist who takes a lightning catch, first attempt two-handed overhead popped out, then he had to turn around to leap to take it one-handed just above the ground 29/3
    9.6 driven to mid-off where Bracken takes a tidy catch low to his left 49/6
    6.3 too quick for Taylor, absolutely castled 30/4
    7.5 that was coming, a faint edge carries through to Gilchrist who takes yet another catch, this one just to his right 31/5
    not out
    11.4 cleans him up with the yorker and strikes in his first over for Australia, and not a bad victim, Vettori moving across his stumps and being bowled outside his legs 59/7
    13.2 driven out in the air towards mid-on and Johnson takes a great catch over his head, reaching out to grab it at the last second 69/8
    16.1 Gillespie was well out courtesy of Symonds' underarm run out after pushing to cover, Oram sent him back 104/9
    18.3 didn't get behind it that time either, backing away as Noffke cleaned him up to round off the match with three wickets, Oram's left stranded 132/10
