    16.6 Dougie nails Gilchrist. Scotland fielders mob the bowler. Plumb in front. Full and straight on the middle stump line, Gilchrist tries to swing it across the line on a bent knee. No wood on leather and the ball thuds into the pad. Dead duck. 91/1
    26.5 Gotcha! Round the wicket again and the ball pitches on middle and turns away. Hayden tries to drive through the on side but can't account for the spin after the ball grips the surface. Loud appeal and 'slow death' Steve Bucknor raises the finger 139/2
    45.2 He is gone! He attempts another slap-slog, across the line, makes no contact and his offstump is pegged back. 274/5

    34.3 Gotcha! Haq cleans up Clarke. Flat and fast as the offspinner pushed that one through, slightly short as well and Clarke goes for a pull but is beaten by the pace. The middle stump is pegged back. 193/3
    43.1 turns in from outside off, Hussey goes back, eases it to cover region 256/4
    46.1 Colin Smith .... you beauty. Smart work behind the stumps. Full in length and angling away, Hussey makes no contact with his intended drive and his back foot is in the air. Smith gathers and quickly whips off the bails even as Hussey tries to get his foot down. Too close to call. Referred upstairs and after numerous viewings it has been given out. correctly at that. 276/6

    9.3 Played on! McGrath gets yet another ODI victim. Lands on a length, just outside off, comes in a touch and Watts plays with soft hands. Too soft and it rolls back to the off stump. 32/3
    5.5 Clarke misses a run-out but McGrath does it! Punched to cover and they set off for a run. Clarke fires in a throw at the non-striker's end, the batsman had given up but the ball misses the sticks. They run for overthrows. They turn greedy, they want two of them but Haq can' t beat McGrath's throw. He was looking pretty good in the middle but he has to get back to the hutch now. 21/1
    7.4 Ripper! Full ball this time and swinging in from outside off. Poonia tries to get his bat down in time but can only end up playing all over it. Ball beats him for pace and clatters into the middle and leg stumps. Too fast and too furious. 27/2
    13.3 Surprise bouncer. Not a surprising result. Right at the throat and Watson is unable to get away from it. Ends up fending a dolly to Bracken at short fine leg 37/4
    15.3 Wicket no 48, in the World Cup games, for Pigeon! Typical Mcgrath delivery. A teaser on the off stump line and Hamilton is sucked into a fatal prod. 42/5
    27.4 Joy for Hodge. Maiden ODI wicket. Tossed up and Dougie Brown couldn't resist a hit. Sends it down the throat of Watson at long on. 89/6
    40.1 Sharp turn there! Cleans up Smith. Lands outside off stump and spins back sharply. He shapes to cut but is surprised by the turn and its all over. Good outing for Smith. This is the 48th instance of a batsman registering 50+ score on World Cup debut. Since Blain is injured and won't bat, Australia have sealed up a facile win. 131/9
    32.5 Gone. That's much better. Full and straight and screaming quick. Wright shuffles across the crease and is a sitting duck in front of the wicket. Struck on the pads and Asoka de Silva has no hesitation in giving the decision. Plumb as it gets. Tait strikes 104/7
