    2.6 oh what a catch! James Hopes! Vincent rocks back and slaps a short, wide and rising delivery outside off stump, but gets the outside corner of the bat and the edge flies down to wide third man where Hopes keeps his eyes on it, dives forward, and holds on very well to get Australia an early breakthrough, much to Lee's satisfaction 16/1
    35.3 and would you believe that? Hogg gets McCullum four short of a maiden hundred, sucking him out of his crease, only to get him smacking straight to Bracken, running in from long-off 175/4
    22.4 edged and gone! Tait produces a wicket, out of the blue, with a good-length delivery moving away off the scrambled seam - looks like he rolled the fingers over that one - that How fends for with minimal footwork, and Hayden holds a good low catch to his right at slip 115/2
    24.5 gone! Fuller length does it for Styris, tentatively coming forward and feeling for it outside off stump only to hand Gilchrist a regulation nick behind the stumps! 123/3
    40.5 Lee strikes! Its full, Taylor comes forward, looking to go on-side, but gets a leading edge that Tait comfortably holds onto at mid-off, and a good innings comes to an end 197/5

    43.1 and he wastes no time, keeping it in the slot, Sinclair has a free swing from the crease, not getting enough elevation and Hogg holds on well inside the ropes at long-on 201/6
    48.6 bowled! Vettori walks right across the stumps, well outside off in an attempt to play one of those en vogue paddles to fine man, but inside-edges onto leg stump to hand Tait a third wicket with his final ball 241/7
