    1.2 gone. Stoinis goes. Watson gets the wicket. And Stonis has holed out to mid-off. Back of a length outside off, Stoinis looks to go over the top of mid-on but skews it up and straight to mid-off where Dre completes an easy catch. 6/1

    7 bowled im. Big wicket for Stars. A nice slower delivery, shorter bouncer. Wright is quick on his stroke and can only inside-edged onto the stumps. Wright's middling series ends. 50/2
    16 gone. KP is walking back. Full on middle, Pietersen pushes a drive back at Green. Not sure all the fielders knew it. They think its a bump ball, but KP has scooped it back. End of a really good innings, match-turning knock. 139/5
    10.4 clipped straight to midwicket. Poor placement. Full delivery on middle, Handscomb comes down and whips it but finds short midwicket who is the only man in the circle in the leg side 85/3
    14.5 the best delivery in the game. Yorker, speared in the blockhole on off. Dav Hussey misses his dig and the off stumps is rattled 131/4
    16.2 gone. Dre Russ gets the wicket. A slower full toss on middle. Quiney is beaten for pace as he tries to clip the ball but is through the shot early, chips the ball straight back to Russell who takes an easy catch 144/6
    19.5 heaved away to midwicket and taken by Chris Green on the boundary. Catches it inside the boundary, throws the ball up as he steps on the boundary and then returns to take the catch. All fine, well done. These could prove to be crucial runs 176/8
    19.4 low full toss on leg, drilled to long-off. But the long-on fielder hits the stumps direct way down from long-off to find Zampa short. Rohrer the fielder. Great bit of fielding 176/7

    20 slower ball outside off, the ball is missed. Hartley throws the stumps down at the strikers end. The bat is one the line or just past. Not sure. Has he made it though? This run could be imperative. He has been given out. Boos ring around the crowd. Stars have been denied the run. 176/8

    13.3 Khawaja is gone! rank full toss outside off, Khawaja slices it off a thick outside edge. It drops into the hands of Worrall at backward point. Good overhead catch 123/3
    9.1 KP takes a tumbling catch and the crowd finds its voice. Tossed up, Zampa cramps the batsman for room. Kallis uses his feet, does not middle the lofted hit, and holes out to long-on. Cool catch from KP 86/1
    10.3 the slower ball works against Watson! Offcutting full ball, Watson wants to flick it away. Instead, he chips it into the hands of David Hussey. This Hussey can afford a laugh for now 94/2
    15.3 Zampa bowls Hussey! The MCG roars. Nice, full, and straight, Hussey goes low and can't lay bat on the slog-sweep. Zampa hits. Hussey takes his helmet off and acknowledges the crowd as he walks back. He gets a standing ovation. Hussey ends his final innings in Australia on 18. Looks like the chat with Warne has worked for Zampa. He has been impressive tonight 142/4
    16.3 Big, big wicket. Russell is on his bike. Offcutter, short and outside off. Russell swings early and edges it behind to Handscomb. Stoinis is pumped 146/5

    18 arrowed through, the batsman makes room, pushes it towards mid-off, and sets off. Beer moves quickly to his right and nails the stumps at his end to catch Blizzard short. Three wickets in three overs 163/5
    18.5 Stoinis hits back, David Hussey takes a smart catch. Another slower ball outside off, Green goes low and looks to launch this out of the park. He only slices it to cover 172/7
