    0.5 poor stroke, is it the pressure? Looks to play a short-arm jab, that one nipped away sharply, he went through with the flat-batted pull and just managed to get a top edge to mid-off. Quiney takes a dolly. The crowd roars. 4/1
    16 the extra ball has got him a wicket. It was nicely tossed up on middle, spun away a touch, he had already decided well before the bowler delivered that he would go for the slog sweep to clear the shortest boundary, got it nowhere near the middle as the wide long-on fielder settled underneath it to complete an easy catch. A painstaking innings from Klinger comes to an end. 109/3
    4.5 looks to cut, cramped for room, only manages to get a thin edge as the wicketkeeper gleefully accepts a catch. It was a slower delivery too, hint of grip on the surface, the extra bounce did Carberry in. Got to say that was a poor stroke. Scorchers in early trouble 30/2
    17.2 high full toss on off, he swung across the line but could only hit it as far as Hilfenhaus at long on, as easy as they come 116/5
    16.1 he's gone first ball. Slower and fuller on off, he looks to slog that across the line over long-on, gets the toe end and the man at the edge of the circle runs around to take it easily. David Hussey is a safe catcher. 109/4
    18.5 he was living dangerously, you got the feeling that it was a matter of time before he fell. This one was full and straight on middle, he walked away to flick it fine, missed it and the ball hit timber. 125/6

    19.4 that's the way to bowl a yorker, or at least that's what his body language exudes. This one's full and tailing in, he swings across the line, gets a thin inside edge and the ball hits the zinger bails. Tye's stay is short-lived 135/7

    11.3 appeal for lbw and the umpire doesn't take long to raise the finger. The ball pitched outside off, spun back in sharply, he looked to play across the line, missed it completely. Was caught on the crease and the ball would have skidded on to hit middle. 82/2
    3.5 that is an excellent catch by the skipper. It was a length ball on middle, he looked to carve it over cover but skims it to Voges who dives to his left to take that one. He specifically came into that position at the start of the over and the move has worked. 13/1

    16.5 what has he done here? He has self-destructed, but the job has been nearly done. Yorker-length delivery on off, changed his grip to play the reverse pull even before the ball was delivered, was cramped for room and couldn't get underneath it as the off stump is pegged back 128/3
