    2.4 gone, through the gate. Gibson pays the price for trying to force it across the line to the leg side. It was a good length ball that was pushed across from over the wicket. Comes on straight with the angle and Gibson misses he flick as the ball crashes into off stump 16/1
    3 gets him to go after a wide delivery and the batsman falls into the trap. It was a length ball that moves away late after pitching. It's a lovely angle and Patterson is culpable of sticking his bat out in the channel. Gets a thick, healthy outside edge that is gladly taken by the wicketkeeper 17/2
    4 poor shot from Watson. Tries to force the issue instead of fighting it out. Gets a top edge on a pull shot. It was outside off but gets big on him and Watson skies it to midwicket where Klinger settles under it 19/3
    8.3 cut to backward point. The plan works. Turner was brought on to see if he can prey on the pressure that was built by the quicks. And he has managed to do just that. This is another flatter delivery on leg stump Morgan backs away and prepares to cut, and all he does is offer a catch like it was fielding practice 42/4
    9.2 pops it to short midwicket! Doesn't time the short ball, possibly because it was cramping him. Contact is made high on the bat, which virtually means there is no timing on the shot. Scorchers are making sure this is a quick finish 48/5
    10.4 skier, massive skier, it's cover's catch. Turner calls for it (That's brilliant work because he had two of his team-mates also hunting down the ball) He watches it carefully. He moves to his left a little bit to get under the ball and takes it reverse cup. Easy peasy. All this after a fuller ball outside off - slower as well - lures a thick outside edge as Russell throws his bat at it 50/6
    17.1 what a throw! Cummins is caught short by the wicketkeeper Sam Whiteman, who first takes off towards square leg in hopes of getting under a top edge. When that didn't happen, he realises he has a run-out chance. He has already done away with his right glove. Picks it up with his left hand, turns around and transfers the ball into his right, all in one motion, takes aim and hits the mark 107/8
    15.2 smashes it down the throat of long-on. Turner has another catch, good captaincy to have him patrolling the straight boundaries. Good bowling to bring him in play as Marsh aims on and around off stump 92/7
