Australia 50/0   KAJ Roach 6-0-24-0

17.4

Roach to Warner, 1 run, short and wide, cut away for one this time

17.5

Roach to Watson, no run, appeal for lbw, but this time Roach has gone wide of the crease, and even though he has hit Watson in line, this is going down with the angle. Hang on. The ball projection technology says it is hitting leg. Nobody was convinced about it. Hence no review. Roach didn't mind the not-out call at all either. Strange that the technology says so. Hitting top of leg. Had they reviewed, Watson would have been on his way

17.6

Roach to Watson, no run, stays back to defend this shortish ball

Australia 63/1   KAJ Roach 9-0-33-0

19.3

Roach to Warner, no run, short of a length, doesn't angle in, but starts wide enough for Warner to not play at it

Roach to Ponting, no run, another bouncer wasted, well down leg, and Ponting doesn't have to do anything about it

21.5

Roach to Ponting, no run, a bouncer again, 143ks, but down leg again, and Ponting gets inside its line. The only thing this delivery has going for it is that t doesn't get up, but then again it is not accurate either

21.6

Roach to Ponting, FOUR, and a leg-side bouncer again, and Ponting has had enough of leaving and ducking. He pulls it, more helps its along the way, and gets four fine of fine leg

42.1

Roach to Watson, no run, forward just outside the off stump and blocked to cover with a typically Watson big forward stride

42.2

Roach to Watson, OUT, gone second ball! It's a horror shot from Watson, wafting at a wide length ball and he's nicked off. He didn't really get his big stride in there and hung the bat out in a very loose drive, it was a good edge to the keeper who couldn't drop it going to his right with two hands at chest height

52.2

Roach to Clarke, no run, angled in, struck on the pad a huge cry for lbw, not out and they refer the decision, going down for me and Ian Gould...too high also, very comfortably missing the stumps and that's the Windies reviews used up. They haven't used either review well

Australia 152/4   KAJ Roach 17-2-56-1
96.1

Roach to Wade, no run, that's a vicious bouncer, takes off from half way down the pitch, and Wade is surprised by it. The only problem is, it is pitched outside leg, and he manages to avoid it. Baugh makes a superb leap to make the collection

MEK Hussey c †Baugh b Roach 48 (205m 167b 6x4 0x6) SR: 28.74

Roach to Wade, no run, length ball, pitches middle and off, defended just outside off by Wade

100.5

Roach to Wade, 1 leg bye, that will leave an impression on the forearm. Wade looks to avoid this short delivery, which pitches outside leg, and follows him. Eyes off the line. And why he gets a leg-bye for having been completely outdone by the delivery is beyond me

100.6

Roach to Harris, no run, Harris stays back to another length delivery, is hit on the pad, but the ball is headed down leg

Australia 251/7   KAJ Roach 20-5-56-2
102.1

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
