32.2

Roach to Ponting, no run, length ball, just outside off, Ponting is back and across, pushes this to mid-off

32.3

Roach to Ponting, OUT, dropped by Baugh, taken by Sammy. This one is either a brute or Ponting has made it look so. A bit of both. Wide of the crease, in-between length, around off, doesn't go in as much as the angle would suggest. Ponting is stuck on the crease, and is squared up, and plays a nothing push. The edge goes high to Baugh, who spills it, but Sammy is alert at first slip, and completes the rebound. Ponting stands his ground, questioning the catch, or possibly hoping something will save him, but he has to eventually go

RT Ponting c Sammy b Roach 7 (30m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.92

Australia 83/3   RT Ponting 7 (26b)
