    16.5 pitches on the middle and straightens, Gilchrist once again looking for the slog sweep, misses it completely, strikes the pad, loud appeal, umpire Rauf takes a long time and then lifts the finger. 104/2
    13.2 Gillespie gets the first break-through, it was short and down the leg side, Hayden looking for the pull, gets the edge through to McCullum (off the glove), who takes the catch. 83/1
    21.5 it was in the slot outside the off stump, hit straight to Fleming at short cover, who takes the catch. 117/3
    31.4 gone! Set him up! Slower ball, just, on a good length outside off stump, Clarke cant contain his aggression and drives at it across the line, getting a leading edge that pops up straight in the air, there's calls of 'CATCH IT' and three men on the off side swoop in, but its Astle, running in from mid-off, who takes the steepler - making a tough chance look easy - and sends Clarke on his way 164/4
    49.3 and he gets one more! Bond bowls one on a good length outside off stump, Symonds steps to leg and looks to uppercut, but ends up nibbling it through to McCullum, thats two in two for Bond 286/7
    40.2 simple dismissal! An innocuous half-tracker moving away from him outside off stump, asking to be cut but what does Hussey do? He opens the face and slices that to Hamish Marshall at backward point for a dolly! McMillan gets the breakthrough, and he's cock-a-hoop 196/5
    49.2 gone! Bond fires it in full on the stumps and White makes room outside leg stump, looking to slog it away, but can only find McMillan at a deepish midwicket 286/6

    49.4 YES he can! Bond! Short of a lengh on off stump, slower too, and it beats Bracken all ends up, cannoning into off stump, and Bond's ecstatic! Superb stuff, and boy does he love it! Huge smile, eyes twinkling like a kid's in a candy shop, arms outstretched - COME TO ME he almost says as his teammates converge on him 286/8

    3.6 good ball, Hilfenhaus has his first wicket in One Day International career, a straight delivery, McCullum plays across it and misses, strikes the pad in line with the off stump, loud appeal, given by umpire Harper. 7/2
    2.2 caught behind, it was bit wide outside the off stump, swings away, Astle cuts at it, gets the edge, Gilchrist takes the catch... loud appeal, Astle waits for some time, asking the umpire whether it carried. The umpire gives the nod, Astle has to go. The replays are not conclusive..... 5/1
    19.3 gone, a soft dismissal, a slower delivery, which Fleming did not pick up,drives it in the air, Hussey moves across slightly at mid off and takes a good catch. 80/3
    31.1 and he strikes first ball! A good length-quick delivery angled across him outside off stump, and Taylor obliges with a flashy drive that takes the regulation outside edge into a diving Gilchrist's gloves, good breakthrough to end a good innings 161/4
    33.2 another one bites the dust! Back of a good length delivery, very innocuous, it must be said, and Fulton drives off the backfoot in the air above Symonds at short extra cover, who jumps up and gets a hand to it, just parrying it up in the air and holding it easily on the second attempt& 166/6
    32.4 low full toss on off stump, he flicks across the line past midwicket, quickly comes Clarke from the deep, who moves, picks it up and throws it straight onto the nonstriker's end, and gets his man! He didnt have a lot to work with, moving and throwing it on the turn, and looking at one stump, but his brilliance does the rest! McMillan cant believe it, and man, that was some throw 165/5
    35.3 as the run rate soars, Vettori chances his arm but holes out to deep square leg! Clark drops one in short of a length on middle and leg, and Vettori swivels and chips it off the pads in the air out to deep square leg, where Hayden, moving from a deepish mid-wicket, covers ground and holds a relatively easy catch 171/7
    37.1 and like Johnson a few overs ago, he picks up one with his first ball! Looped up out of the back of the hand, its the wrong 'un, and Franklin, looking for the spin, drives across the line and ends up with a leading edge to Clarke at a shortish point, and Australia are now a wicket away from victory 175/9
    36.5 bowled 'em! Gives it some air, rolling the fingers over it, but it comes out faster than Bond expected, and he plays all over it as the ball quickly slides between pat and pad and disturbs the furniture 175/8

    38.3 thats the end of that! Symonds tosses it up invitingly outside off stump, Patel gets a half-stride forward and lofts it down the ground high, high in the air, and Hilfenhaus at long-on squints against the sun and gets under it, holding a neat catch to round off a comprehensive Australian victory 184/10
