99.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer gets a massive cheer for successfully defending his first ball in Test cricket

Australia 265/9   MA Beer 0* (1b)
100.4

Swann to Beer, no run, ah, lovely quicker ball, fired in flat outside off stump and past a hapless Beer outside edge

100.5

Swann to Beer, no run, this is more securely defended off the front foot, much to the delight of the crowd

100.6

Swann to Beer, no run, Beer survives, patting this back to Swann leaving Hilfenhaus another over against Bresnan

Australia 266/9   MA Beer 0* (4b)
101.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, without looking all that secure, Beer has managed to stab a defence

Australia 267/9   MA Beer 0* (5b)
102.2

Swann to Beer, no run, careful defence from Beer, not looking hopeless at all at No. 11

102.3

Swann to Beer, no run, again Beer manages to defend well enough

102.4

Swann to Beer, no run, neatly nudged into the leg side

102.5

Swann to Beer, no run, fuller ball is driven, without any real power, to mid-off

102.6

Swann to Beer, 2 runs, Beer has his first runs in Test cricket, flipping this around the corner for a couple

Australia 270/9   MA Beer 2* (10b)
103.5

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer survives again, playing with soft hands to defend to gully

103.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, very solid defence to end the over, Bresnan looks for a classic hit-the-top-of-off delivery but finds a similarly textbook defence from the No. 11

Australia 274/9   MA Beer 2* (12b)
104.4

Swann to Beer, no run, Beer looking more confident now as he steps crisply forward in defence

104.5

Swann to Beer, no run, secure and sturdy defence from Beer, he's got his eye in now

104.6

Swann to Beer, no run, very safe defence receives huge applause from the Australia supporters

Australia 279/9   MA Beer 2* (15b)
105.5

Bresnan to Beer, no run, short ball into the ribs is well negotiated by Beer who stands tall and fends it down into the leg side

105.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer survives. That's all that matters for him. Bresnan hits the off-stump channel and Beer thinks about leaving alone before rushing into a jabbed defence

Australia 280/9   MA Beer 2* (17b)
