0.1

Chigumbura to Gilchrist, 2 runs, decent start from Chigumbura, a full length on middle and off, and Gilchrist flicks off his pads to start the proceedings

0.2

Chigumbura to Gilchrist, 1 run, tucked up again, and nudged away behind square. Good tight line so far. No room to free the arms... yet

Australia 3/0   AC Gilchrist 3* (2b)
1.1

Brent to Gilchrist, no run, good wheels, Brenty, good wheels. No great pace, but accurate enough

1.2

Brent to Gilchrist, 1 wide, too far down the leg-side this time

1.2

Brent to Gilchrist, 1 wide, even further down leg-side. And swinging as well. That's useful, but only if you can control it ...

1.2

Brent to Gilchrist, no run, back on a good length outside off, and defended into the covers with a loud "no!"

1.3

Brent to Gilchrist, 1 run, tucked up on the legs and Ponting calls Gilchrist through for a scampered single.

Australia 10/1   AC Gilchrist 4* (5b)
2.2

Chigumbura to Gilchrist, OUT, short and Gilchrist goes for the pull ... but miscues it horribly! The ball spirals into the dank Newlands heavens and midwicket pouches a comfortable catch! Australia, in their first competitive match since the World Cup final, are in something resembling disarray ...

AC Gilchrist c Matsikenyeri b Chigumbura 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 12/2   AC Gilchrist 4 (6b)
