10.2

Sammy to Cowan, no run, wide again, and bat yet to meet ball this morning

10.3

Sammy to Cowan, no run, first touch on the ball then. Sammy pitches it up, close to off. Cowan solidly defends to cover

10.4

Sammy to Cowan, no run, fuller still, but wide outside off, and Cowan doesn't play at those

Australia 44/0   DJG Sammy 1-1-0-0

12.1

Sammy to Cowan, no run, wide length ball, angling away, left alone

12.2

Sammy to Cowan, no run, another leave outside off, it's clear Sammy is not going to be bowl anything on the stumps

12.3

Sammy to Cowan, OUT, Sammy, Sammy, Sammy. He never plays a Test without his place being questioned, but here he has scored runs, and has taken the first wicket. He has kept on teasing Cowan, and Cowan finally follows one. To be fair to Sammy, this length ball is closer to off than the previous ones, but not close enough to not leave. And he doesn't cover the angle well, and gets an edge through to Baugh

EJM Cowan c †Baugh b Sammy 14 (60m 42b 3x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

12.4

Sammy to Watson, no run, accurate length ball, stump to stump, defended back to Watson

12.5

Sammy to Watson, no run, Watson misses out. Length ball, straying onto the pads, but he has flicked it straight to square leg

12.6

Sammy to Watson, no run, this is just outside off, angling in, Watson presses forward, defends it to cover-point. Sammy: 2-2-0-1

Australia 50/1   DJG Sammy 2-2-0-1

14.1

Sammy to Watson, no run, nagging line again, just outside off, angling in, Watson is cautious and forward in defence

14.5

Sammy to Watson, no run, short of a length, just outside off, Watson is back and defends it towards cover

14.6

Sammy to Watson, FOUR, too straight this time, and he has clipped it off the pads. Not a shot played in anger, but the timing carries it all the way for four, between square leg and mid-on. First runs off Sammy

Australia 56/1   DJG Sammy 3-2-4-1

16.1

Sammy to Watson, no run, length ball wide outside off, left alone

16.2

Sammy to Watson, no run, appeal for lbw, but only a half-hearted one. This one suddenly nips back in from outside off, surprising Watson, beating the inside edge, but it hits him high on the knee roll

16.3

Sammy to Watson, no run, this one stays wide outside off, and is left alone

16.4

Sammy to Watson, no run, big shout again. This is closer. Watson hasn't played a shot. Sammy reviews it. This one nips back in from outside off. A length ball, Watson doesn't play at it. Is hit on the pad, about two stumps wide of off. The ball-projection says it would have hit the outside of the off stump. So we will stay with the on-field decision, and Watson survives. I know an umpire or three who don't like batsmen padding up

16.5

Sammy to Watson, no run, pitched up outside off, driven on the up, Sammy fields in his followthrough

16.6

18.4

Sammy to Watson, no run, again that probing line outside off, nipping back in a touch, Watson pushes forward and defends

18.5

Sammy to Watson, no run, floats this slightly wider, Watson stretches well enough to cover the line, and defends to cover

18.6

Sammy to Watson, no run, short of a length, jagging back in again, hits the inside edge onto the pad, and Watson then kicks it away

Australia 64/1   DJG Sammy 5-3-5-1

20.1

Sammy to Warner, no run, length ball, just outside off, angling away, Warner doesn't play at it

20.2

Sammy to Warner, OUT, That man Sammy again. That annoying line on and outside off. And the angle. Warner has let one go in this over, but follows this one. Not close to the pitch of it. And the edge ensues. Caught at second slip by Bravo. No stopping Sammy's joy
