    2.2 Boland strikes with his second ball! He skips away outside leg again, Simmons loses his shape as he throws his bat at it. Slashes this length ball down to third man off a top edge 20/1
    4.4 No mistake from Handscomb... He whips the bails off in a flash now. Beer gave this more air and lured Ludeman out of the crease again. He has a big swing and misses. The keeper does the rest 36/2
    5.1 Handscomb's night has gotten better! Mahela has nicked behind. Full and slanting away wide outside off, Mahela is crease bound as he flashes a cut and feeds an edge to the keeper. Faulkner exults 38/3
    9.4 there is a noise, and Hastings celebrates.. Back of a length and outside off, Head reaches out and flashes a cut. He does not get hold of it and nicks it behind. Handscomb pouches it even as it was dying on him. Plucks it inches from the turf. Or did it bounce? I'm not too sure. The finger goes up however; Head can't believe it 64/4

    19.2 Boland nails a yorker and nabs Ross. This was speared on middle and leg, the batsman shuffles across and misses the sweep for once. Pinned on the front pad 179/5

    11.1 Laughlin roars! Good length ball, not sure if that was the slower ball. Stoinis picks it up and hits it straight down the throat of deep midwicket 90/2
    6.1 Luke Wright drops back, treads onto the stumps and lights the zing bails! Sliding into the pads, worked towards square leg. Wright, though, loses his balance and slays himself. Lucky strike for Rashid 53/1
    12 KP holes out to long-on. Laughlin is mobbed by his team-mates. What a twin-strike. KP gets under this full ball and lofts it to Head who hangs onto it 94/3
    16.1 Long-off (long-on for a left-hander) comes in and takes it! Full toss outside leg, Maxi loads up for a switch-wallop and skewers it to Richardson off a top edge. Key wicket for Rashid and Strikers 139/5
    15.3 Mahela pulls off a stunning catch! Richardson has some reward. Back-of-the-hand slower ball outside off, Hussey can't manufacture his own pace. He goes for a hook and top-edges it over backward square leg. Mahela sprints in and plucks it out. That's how it's done, boys 134/4

    18.2 the slower ball does the trick! Handscomb uses his feet and is tricked by the 110ks ball - variation. He pulls and picks out deep backward square leg 151/6
    18.4 Zampa backs away, targets cover and misses. Richardson, however, hits middle, and lights up the bails with a back-of-the-hand slower delivery 152/7
