Siddle to Bravo, FOUR, Siddle produces another loose shot. Full and wide, Bravo chases it with no feet, the edge scoops over the gullies

91.4

Siddle to Bravo, FOUR, loose again. Short of a length, just outside off, Bravo is not near it, but flashes at it, and the edge flies over the cordon. That's fifty for Bravo. I think this innings has featured three back-to-back boundaries, and long spell sof patience in between

91.5

Siddle to Bravo, no run, length ball, just outside off, holding its line, but Bravo doesn't play at this one. Playing only at the wider deliveries

91.6

Siddle to Bravo, 1 run, slower ball, 118ks, but ends up being a high full toss on the stumps. Bravo's head falls back, but he manages to drive it for a single to deep cover. Well, hello. Bravo didn't make his crease, doesn't touch down, assumes the single us made, and walks back to talk to Chanders. Should be called a short run. Or maybe not. he eventually went back into the crease to face the ball, so the single was completed then. But Australia did have a run-out opportunity

94.1

Watson to Bravo, OUT, Watto finally gets one. Length ball, pitched on off, shapes away a bit, Bravo is committed to the shot, and manages only an outside edge. This one goes neither short, nor over. Neither right not left. Straight to gully
