    2.1 pitched up, lovely ball, swinging away, then seaming in, Waugh wasn't expecting the seam, playing the defence outside the off stump, ball into the pad, plumb plumb plumb, middle stump 7/1
    8.1 late cut, hopeless cut, top edge flies at the face of the second slip, good safe catch 32/2
    31 leaning forward into the drive, thick outside edge, Harris takes a safe catch diving forward at point 126/3
    41.4 coming down the wicket, trying the off drive, not quite to the pitch of it, the ball slips off the face of the bat into the waiting hands of Astle at cover 172/5
    35.5 his favourite slog over mid wicket, only problem is it was direct to mid wicket, great catch from a ball which was hit hard 149/4

    43.4 defending close, Lee calls him thru, sacrifices himself for the sake of the team, Nash racing him up the wicket, picks up and dives from point blank, Lee out by a couple of metres 175/6

    1.2 pitching just outside off stump, seaming in a little, thru the gate at waist height, thru to the keeper, appeal, and Shep says "yes, it brushed the glove" 5/1
    6.1 driving at it on the stumps, thick edge travels straight to Ponting at point, Astle's run of garbage scores in the WCs continues 21/2
    15.3 not the shot to play when you have a busted hamstring, trying to sweep, then aborted it short, turns into an awful shot, mistimed into the air, Fleming dives forward with an excellent catch at mid on 49/4
    14.4 a beautiful delivery, cast that one in stone, an outswinger to the left hander, Fleming couldn't adjust quick enough, yorker length, cleans up the leg stump, fantastic stuff 47/3
