    8.6 driven powerfully down the ground for a single - no, they'll take two. They'll have to be quick, mind - he's out! Khawaja's short! A brilliant throw from the deep and Usman's not the quickest, and is an inch short 62/3
    5.2 Watto's fallen, hook, line and sinker - I think that may have been a slower ball, and he's driven it straight to mid-off 44/1
    6.4 superb bowling. He gave this more flight, a tough wider too, luring Smith into dancing down the pitch, it gripped and spun away and the bails were whipped off 51/2
    10.1 he's holed out! Warner's gone for a huge pull and picked out deep midwicket who barely has to move! 66/4
    15.1 Maxwell's on the drive, lofting it, but he's skied it to Williamson at deep extra cover! No chance he'll drop that and he doesn't 100/5
    18.1 outside off but a slower ball, and Marsh has misread it, skying a pull straight down Milne's throat at long-on - and that's a huge, huge wicket! 121/6
    18.5 catch - great catch! Agar understandably goes for a pull on the front foot, attempting to heave it over midwicket for six, but picks out Taylor who - running about 15 or so yards - takes a neat, low catch 123/7
    19.1 goddim! Guptil takes a fine catch in the deep as Faulkner, The Finisher, tries to clobber this across the line into the midwicket stand but picks out Guptil who has huge, safe buckets, scooping it up on the run 124/8
    19.5 bowled him! Inside edge as NCN tries to carve this somewhere, anywhere, but can only find his stumps 132/9
