    25.4 he's got him! Quicker and flatter, doesnt turn as Watson goes back, looking to play it square, and catches him in front of middle and leg, and umpire Baxter lifts the finger as bowler and 'keeper appeal 122/1
    38.4 gone! Tuffey rolls the fingers over it, landing it on a good length outside off stump, Hayden drives across the line and finds Vincent stationed on the circle at mid-on 210/2

    41.5 bowled 'em neck and crop! Patel fires in one quicker as Hodge advances down the track, he's not to the pitch and the ball creeps in past the bat to shatter off and middle 251/3
    44.3 this time he's gone! Hussey again dances down to a full delivery, but gets under and rolls the wrists on it, the ball takes the leading edge and the ball pops up high in the air for McCullum to call for it and safely pouch it 279/4
    46.4 not this time! A bad ball but White cant send another full toss over deep midwicket as he finds Styris about three feet inside the wide long-on ropes 302/5

    5.3 easy catch! Tait strikes with a back of a length, pacy delivery which almost squares up Vincent, who turns the bat in his hands as he looks for runs on the leg side, and the leading egde is easily accepted by Hogg at cover 34/2
    3.2 what a catch from that man Hodge! Fleming takes a good length delivery from middle and leg and whips it in front of midwicket, but Hodge flings himself acrobatically to his left and pouches the take above his head! 23/1
    6.3 caught and bowled! Taylor is deceived by the slower one, his feet go nowhere and he offers an easy catch back to Bracken, who gleefully laps it up 38/3
    9.1 edged and gone! Johnson gets rid of Styris first ball with a full, away-swinging delivery that he flashes at loosely, away from the body, and Haddin accepts the regulation nick 41/4
    16.5 all over! Fulton stands rooted and drives one from just outside off stump to Hussey at short extra cover, and the fun ends for him 116/5

    42.2 blinder from the debutant! Short and wide, Franklin cuts but cant keep it down, and Voges at backward point dives in the air and snaps it up with two hands moving to his natural left 285/7
    44.5 edged and gone! Tuffey is sucked into driving outside off stump, his bat comes down late and the regulation edge, off the seam movement, is snapped up by Haddin 303/8
    48.5 run out! Tait bowls a great, low delivery outside off stump, Gillespie squeezes the bat down it to steer it to backward point, crosses for one and then as he turns for the second, has to head back as a very good throw comes in from Voges to get him inches short of his crease 339/9
