Australia 86/4   SE Marsh 23* (36b 1x4)

25.1

Marsh edged down the wicket to drive expansively, some spin took it past the outside edge and Prior had the bails off in a flash.

Yardy to Marsh, no run, tossed up this time and defended

30.6

44.4

Yardy to Marsh, FOUR, oh yes! That's class from Marsh as he lifts Yardy over wide midwicket, and the most impressive thing about that is his placement, there's nobody in the deep there so it's a safe shot

44.5

Yardy to Marsh, FOUR, another boundary and Marsh moves to 95! He's slog swept that one with power, just wide of the man in the deep and it bounces over the rope

44.6

Yardy to Marsh, SIX, Marsh brings up his century with a six! Oh, what a moment for Marsh!
