    7 Perren walks away to leg to give himself room, Bird says thank you very much and cleans out his off stump, good bowling but Perren will be disappointed with his execution there 34/1

    8.3 Yorker! Quick and full from Bird, Hopes surprised and beaten for pace and the ball crashes into middle and leg. The Bulls continue their poor start to the season in the FRC 42/2
    35.3 Carseldine tries to angle it down to third man but only succeeds in handing the keeper an easy catch. Rightfully disappointed with himself. That's a poor end to what was a good innings. 130/6
    23 plays square, Thornely rolls his fingers across it and Smith takes a good catch off the inside edge 86/3
    25.5 arm ball from Hauritz, drifts in and Batticciotto pushes forward and leaves the ball, it waps him on the pad, no shot offered and he's given out, tough call, a fair bit of doubt in that as he was hit outside the line 91/4
    28.2 fuller ball, drifts into the batsman and turns away, Simpson plays the wrong line and is hit on the back pad, that's dead in front and the umpire gives it out confidently! 102/5
    47.2 looks to go over long on and get it high on the bat and skies it high into the sky, O'Keefe moves around and mid off to complete the catch. A good innings from Reardon but the honours lie with NSW and Bird in particular with his 5-26 177/10
    42.4 shorter delivery outside off stump, Hartley tries to pull but all he succeeds in doing is playing it onto his stumps 158/7
    44.4 Harris moves to leg and is yorked. Bird cleans him up with a quick yorker there. Good bowling. Bird loves cleaning up the poles! 164/8
    44.5 full and straight, hits Swan in line with leg stump and an easy decision for the umpire there, Bird on a hattrick! 164/9

    25.2 Hughes looks to play down the ground but is defeated in flight and Simpson claims a good diving catch to his right. Just what the Bulls needed! 89/5
    9.3 Warner closes the face trying to work it through the leg side and the ball balloons into the point region, Hopes moves backwards and takes a tough one handed catch over his head. Vital breakthrough! 40/1
    11.4 walks across to well outside off stump and Swan fires it in to leg stump and cleans him up, poor batting! Brought on from the pressure created by these two bowlers 42/2
    15.5 slower ball, Henriques looks to smash it over the top of cover but it flies off the edge out to dep point and Reardon takes a very good catch low down on the run to dismiss Henriues. Another result of the pressure! 52/3
    16.3 Thornely doesn't move his feet to a full one and he's wrapped on the pads and given! No doubt about that one, QLD really in the hunt here, Harris on fire! 52/4

    37.3 uses his feet and plays in the air to long off 131/6
    41.4 full and straight, he misses it and is caught dead in front, was going to take leg pole 149/8
    44.1 Hauritz pushes at one outside off and it bounces and gets large on him and all he can do is edge it to the keeper who holds on this time! 153/9

    44.3 Bollinger plays a touch too early and the ball flies to Nye at backward point and the Bulls celebrate a great come from behind victory! 153/10
