    14.1 amazing, he does it again, reasonable similar ball to Gibbs, drifting away and then grabbing a foot mark, Kirsten sweeping, totally inappropriate, ball was too short, well missed, and into the left hander's off stump it goes 53/2

    12.2 what a ball, drifting away and pitching outside the leg stump, possibly grabs the foot marks, and then some wicket turn across Gibbs and it clips the off stump, Gibbs doesn't leave, refuses to believe he was bowled 48/1
    21.2 pushed down to the mid off, dangerous single, Bevan collects and has the full face of the stumps to aim for, direct throw has Cullinan out by close to 2 metres 61/4
    14.3 oh dear, South Africans giving Warne a testimonial it seems, pitched up, near the toes, Cronje attempting to turn it onto the on side, edges to the 1st slip, 3 wickets in 8 balls 53/3
    44.5 deceived in the air, ball pops up, Waugh takes the easy catch above his head in the covers 175/6
    40.3 rhodes going for the big pull, realising the last 10 overs were upon him, lofts too high, or perhaps not high enough, bevan runs in from the deep square leg, good safe running catch 145/5

    45.5 angling in, inside edge onto the stumps, Pollock's mini slog is over, but I dare say Australia would prefer the wicket of the other guy 183/7

    48.2 and gone, yorker knocks the middle stump out of the ground, Boucher making room for himself and plays the diagonal bat over the top of it 196/8
    48.4 driving down to the long off, they go for wrist-slititng single, Reiffel is relied upon for the long direct throw, McGrath just deflects it onto the stumps 198/9
    49.4 run out gone, Australia have done it 213/10
