    44.2 same ball as before, only different is that this one was on the stump, Gibbs stepping back and choosing the wrong shot, trying to cut the slow ball yorker, ball hits the middle and leg stumps 219/4

    32.3 Cullinan's brain taking one of its famous leaves of absence, trying to slog it on one knee over the mid wicket, ball spins into the off stump 140/2
    32.5 Hansie obviously thought that last stroke of Cullinan's was a mighty fine idea, because he tries it himself, ball hits the thigh of the leg on the ground, big appeal, ball was spinning down the line, small chance of it missing the off stump 141/3
    47.5 misjuding the pull over the square leg, ball floats in slow motion in the air for the easiest of catch for Mark waugh at mid wicket, excellent pocket innings from Jonty 250/5
    49.5 trying to pull it, top edge is lifted over the point, Warne running towards the fence and takes a marvellous diving catch 271/6
    50 pretending he's Klusener, but convinces noone, trying to pull down the ground, misses, ball knocks the leg stump out of the ground 271/7

    5.2 tapping it to the mid wicket, they're running off the cliffs, Waugh didn't want the run, and ends up being a metre short of his ground 20/2
    1.4 and thru him, off stump goes cartwheeling out of the ground, Elworthy around the wicket, Gilchrist came with so much of a reputation, and he'll be flying home with none of it 6/1
    34.1 trying to flick it over mid wicket, Ponting trying his darndest to mathc the scoring feats of his captain, skies it instead, there'll no droppies from Donald at mid on 174/4
    11.3 pulling, utterly mistimed, ball floats to Boje at wide mid off, another memorable innings from the maestro Martyn 48/3
