Its all over!! What an anti-climax for the chase were once they looked like chasing it down quit easily. After the blistering start to the innings both openers fell cheaply as no one looked good accept Brit. Lost too many wickets for few little runs, We are still baffled why Shoaib Malik was held back. On the other hand Lyon and Hazlewood bowled brilliantly. Lee came back strongly and bowled a typical spearhead spell. Steve Smith has been named Man of the Match for his captain's innings and also held two important catches. Do join us for the tomorrows game. Till then take-care, cheers!!

Lee to Hilfenhaus, OUT, saw him coming and bowled it wide outside off. Laughlin scampered for suicidal run and no way on earth he could have reached in time. Smith cracks at the strikers end and he's out by a mile or so!

Lee to Shoaib Malik, OUT, well another one bits the dust. Fuller outside off, Shoaib had nothing much to do with it as he squeezed to Smith at deep extra covers
