    4.6 caught, and a sharp catch too! That was full again outside off stump, Gilchrist gave it a fearsome whack, hit with raw power, but he didn't get the elevation, Jeetan Patel moved a few steps to his left at mid-off and took the catch just above his head 28/1

    25.4 trapped him lbw, Vincent tries to sweep and doesn't make proper contact, Clarke appeals confidently and the umpire says that's out, that's a poor decision because I don't think the ball hit the pad, replays showed the ball hitting the glove just in line of off stump 142/3
    9.3 pitches on off stump and angles away from Fleming who tries to cut, it was far too close to the body for that shot and he gets an edge through to Gilchrist, McGrath gets the breakthrough for Australia in his second over 47/1
    18.3 and gone! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, ball stayed bit low after hitting the deck. Fulton drives at it with no real footwook and the edge is produced. Hayden at wide first slip dives across to his left and takes a good low catch. 107/2
    35.2 bowled him round his legs! Clarke angles that down leg side from round teh wicket, Taylor moves well across his stumps and tries to sweep, the ball pitches on leg stump and straightens, Taylor misses the sweep and has his stumps re-arranged! 198/5
    27.2 outstanding fielding! McMillan tries to drive but gets an outside edge to Johnson for one, Taylor calls for the single, McMillan isn;t the quickest between the wickets, Johnson picks up and hits the stumps and the bowler's end witha quick and fast throw, McMillan is well short 150/4
