0.1

Bollinger to Smith, no run, bounce and movement outside off! Bollinger floated this one right up to the batsman, but wide outside off. Smith through himself into the drive, but the ball seamed sharply away from him. Good take behind the wicket too

0.2

Bollinger to Smith, no run, beaten outside off! Well, there's life in this early-season wicket after all. Again, this hit the seam and left Smith

0.3

Bollinger to Smith, no run, on a length and straight, Smith stays deep in the crease to defend. There's a cheer from the crowd as he lays bat on ball.

0.4

Bollinger to Smith, no run, Smith is looking just a little flustered out there after a fantastic bouncer from Bollinger. Smith appeared to lose sight of it, ducking very late as he turned away from the rearing delivery

0.5

Bollinger to Smith, no run, stifled appeal! Bollinger pushed this one right up to Smith, whose feet went absolutely nowhere. The ball thudded into the pads off a thick inside edge, which was quickly spotted by the umpire as the appeal went up

0.6

Bollinger to Smith, 1 wide, hurled down the leg side, another wide. A bit of a mixed bag, this over from Bollinger. Some magical deliveries, some utter filth

0.6

Bollinger to Smith, OUT, bowled him! A flat-footed Smith pokes outside off, the ball nips in off the seam and takes the inside edge, clattering into the stumps. First blood to Australia
