    18.3 bowled'em. Beauty from Agar. Tossed up, pitched on middle and leg and rips away past the outside edge of the bat to strike the off stump. Agarwal, who was crease-bound, had no clue about it.. 98/2
    6.2 gone! That's extra bounce from Pattinson, not enough width for Chand to cut, and it gets big on him even as he tries to get on his toes and ride the bounce, and he can only top-edge it through to the keeper 26/1
    44.3 short outside off, and Pandey opens up at the hips, looking to slap that over cover, but doesn't get the elevation, and he also had to reach out for it, looked like another slower cutter, and dragged it straighter than he wanted, straight into mid-off's hands 225/8

    24.2 Agar has his man now. Arm-ball, arrows in with the angle. Nair skips back to this fullish length ball and is pinged on the back pad in front of middle. That would have rattled middle and leg. Nair would have been better off had be been forward to it... 115/4
    18.4 that is a real gift for Agar. He follows up the ripper with a loopy leg-stump full-toss, which should have been dispatched. Instead, Jadhav simply chips it into the hands of Ferguson at short midwicket 98/3
    32.3 Ashton Agar has his fourth wicket. Top edged and taken! Fuller and just outside off with a hint of extra bounce, Samson goes low for a sweep. He does not get hold of it as he skews it to Pattinson, who takes a couple of steps back and takes a good overhead catch. End of a stop-start innings from Samson. 156/5
    34.2 Agar claims a five-wicket haul. Flighted and fullish on middle, Axar shapes for a sweep and skies it off the toe end of the bat. Another batsman departs after failing to get hold of the sweep. Handscomb runs in and settles under it at deep midwicket 161/6
    42.5 short again, looks to drag a pull from outside off and ends up top-edging into the backward square leg region. Stayed in the air long enough for Wade to sprint across to catch it, but he had to dive to complete his effort, and took it very well 217/7

    48.2 full-toss on off stump, punched straight to extra cover and they go for the single anyway. Kulkarni was a little late to start, and Sandhu had an entire fortnight to gather Khawaja's throw and flick the bails off 247/9

    8.2 Reward for tight bowling outside off. Good length and angling away outside off with extra bounce. Prior to this ball Khawaja was beaten four times in five balls. He chases this one with a flashy cut with no footwork and nicks it behind as Samson dives full-length to his left and pouches it. Dhawan looks pumped and Khawaja is given a send off of sorts.. 58/1

    15 Karn strikes. Tossed up and spins back in sharply. Head treks down the track, is beaten in flight, is beaten by turn as well. The ball shoots through the gate and hits the top of off 94/2

    28 bowled him! It wasn't short enough for that backfoot push, turned away from off stump, and he ended up inside-edging it onto off stump. Played with an angled bat there 157/4
    26.2 flighted outside off, and Handscomb comes out of his crease, meets it on the full, and smacks it in the air, down the ground, straight into long-on's hands. He's thrown his wicket away here 153/3

    33.4 bowled him! That was a legspinner's classic. Flighted it above Wade's eyeline, got it to drift away from him and got the batsman to stretch out to drive through the off side. Then it dipped, landing far shorter than the batsman expected, and turned through the gate to bowl him, leaving him overbalanced. Top, top delivery 177/5
    34.3 an appeal for stumping. Agar walks off, though. Samson is confident.. Agar is gone and the TV umpire confirms it. Nair gives this ample air outside off and gets it to turn away. This means that Agar is dragged forward. He loses his balance and drifts out of the crease; Samson takes the bails off in a flash.. Agar can't pull his back foot back in time 178/6
    48 Zampa has missed a full-toss, which dips in late. He targets the leg side with a flick and misses. The ball brushes the pad and disturbs the stumps. I guess that was a slower ball. Zampa has done his job for Australia A, though 258/7
