Swann to Watson, SIX, now Watson takes it to Swann, he dances down the pitch and lofts him straight down the ground...mid-on had been brought up, but it wouldn't have mattered if he'd been on the rope. That was easily into the stand

Australia 70/1   SR Watson 48* (57b 9x4 1x6)   GP Swann 5.2-3-9-0

Swann to Smith, SIX, big shot...couple of skips down the pitch and drives this high and handsome over long-of

Australia 157/3   SPD Smith 7* (15b 1x6)   GP Swann 18.1-4-37-1

Trott to Smith, SIX, length ball on off stump and Smith drives him down the ground, in fact it's a great shot, up and over and all the way! Smith goes to his maiden Test hundred with an outrageous lofted drive, well played that man, ballsy way to bring it up, fair play man

Australia 384/5   SPD Smith 100* (198b 14x4 2x6)   IJL Trott 1.1-0-7-0

Swann to Harris, SIX, HUMPTY! Harris gives Swann the Rhino charge - which must be a terrifying sight - reaches the pitch and heaves the ball into the crowd at wide long-on

Australia 460/8   RJ Harris 9* (8b 1x6)   GP Swann 31.3-4-82-2

Swann to Harris, SIX, tossed up, here comes Ryano again, plants the front foot and sends the ball straight and high down the ground for another Dorothy

Australia 472/8   RJ Harris 18* (14b 2x6)   GP Swann 32.1-4-90-2
