Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

108.6

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, bouncer, at the chest, Hilfy is backing away when he brings his bat in front. The ball could have gone anywhere but dies down before reaching gully

Australia 285/8   BW Hilfenhaus 0* (1b)

110.1

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, wide of the crease, into the ribs, Hilfy manages to keep it down as he fends it towards short leg

110.2

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, whoa, that's a slap. Hilfy saw that all right. Expected a short ball, cleared the front leg, swung and hoped for the best, and through midwicket it went

110.3

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, gives him the slower fuller one outside off, and Hilfy swings again. Beaten this time. Edwards smiles at him

110.4

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, 2 no balls, it's a no-ball but a mean bouncer, rising from fuller than halfway down the pitch. Hilfy does well to drop his wrists out of the way, and it's too high for Baugh too. They run a bye, but Gould seems to have forgotten to signal the bye. One bouncer for the over

Australia 291/8   BW Hilfenhaus 4* (5b 1x4)

111.1

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, and Hilfenhaus drives it down and along the ground. Pitched up, on the pads, and he has smoked it through mid-on

111.2

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, on a length, on off, Hilfenhaus defends off the front foot

111.3

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, flighted, and Hilfy is going after everything that is above his eye level. This time he gets a thick edge that beats the slips, and goes for four

111.4

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, full again, Hilfy swings again, gets an inside edge towards mid-on

111.5

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, and what do we have here? A leave outside off. Hilfy backing himself now

111.6

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, full, nearly a yorker, dug out back to Bishoo

Australia 301/8   BW Hilfenhaus 12* (11b 3x4)

112.5

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, did Baugh nearly pull off a blinder? Yes he did. Full, on the pads, gets an inside edge, Baugh dives to his left, gets a hand to it, but doesn't manage to hold on to it. He must have been blind-sighted by the batsman, because it has come between the bat and pad, not down the leg side

112.6

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, full on the pads again, Hilfy swings again, gets a single to long-on

Australia 303/8   BW Hilfenhaus 13* (13b 3x4)

113.1

Roach to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, short of a length. Hilfy backs away, pushes the bat at it, gets a single to cover

113.5

Roach to Hilfenhaus, no run, bouncer, and Hilfy is backing away in earnest, and then swings at some thin air

113.6

Roach to Hilfenhaus, no run, backs away and swings at a length delivery now, managing only to send it back to the bowler

Australia 305/8   BW Hilfenhaus 14* (16b 3x4)

114.2

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, short of a length, into the body, seams back in, cuts him in two, Baugh appeals for a catch, but it has come off the thigh

114.3

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, full, yorker nearly, digs it out in front of leg

Australia 307/8   BW Hilfenhaus 15* (18b 3x4)

116.1

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, 1 leg bye, another bouncer hits a batsman. Wide of the crease, follows the melon, and hits him right on the badge. They take a leg-bye, though

116.3

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, Just as Sammy did to the ball after he was hit on the helmet, Hilfenhaus has smoked this one. Opens the front leg, backs away, and pulls this short one through midwicket for four. It's all happening

116.4

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, sharper one now, 143ks, Hilfehnaus thinks of going after it, but pulls out at the last moment

116.5

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, the change-up delivery is full, but too straight, and hits him on the pad outside the line of leg

116.6

FH Edwards to Hilfenhaus, no run, length ball, on middle and off, and he smashes this down towards mid-off

Australia 322/8   BW Hilfenhaus 19* (23b 4x4)

118.1

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, flighted outside off, turns away, left alone

118.2

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, that's a filthy long hop, and Hilfenhaus goes back to pull this from outside off, sending it to cow corner

118.3

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, flighted outside off, hit uppishly to mid-off, but the man is back at long-off

118.5

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, gets the edge but well short of slip. It's bowled slower, and he plays with soft edges as it turns away from off

118.6

Bishoo to Hilfenhaus, no run, quicker, shorter, flatter, defended square on the off side

Australia 328/8   BW Hilfenhaus 24* (28b 5x4)

119.2

Roach to Hilfenhaus, OUT, heave-ho. Timber-to. Hilfenhaus has done this with success so far, but Roach gets one through. Finally bowling the delivery that hits the top of the stumps. Not full enough to drive, not short enough to miss the stumps. And Hilfenhaus swings in the next post code of the line of the ball. Gone. Top of middle. This hits a crack, too. An import hand from Ben, though

BW Hilfenhaus b Roach 24 (57m 29b 5x4 0x6) SR: 82.75

Australia 329/9   BW Hilfenhaus 24 (29b 5x4)
