Malinga to Watson, 2 runs, excellent yorker, Watson jams his bat down in the nick of time and squeezes it towards mid on, the fielder is in the deep at long on and Symonds pounces on the chance to take two runs, superb running

Malinga to Watson, OUT, bowled him! Shane Watson moves across and tries to play a cheeky paddle sweep over short fine leg, he played it extremely well against New Zealand, but Malinga is too quick for him, Watson doesn't make contact and the ball hits middle and leg stump
