15,16,17,18,19 April 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Shillingford to Warner, OUT, Shilly is back with a bang. Makes him drive for the first time. Pitched up on off. Warner is on the walk a bit as he is not close to its pitch. Gets an edge, and Sammy swallows it at slip

DA Warner c Sammy b Shillingford 29 (72m 42b 4x4 0x6) SR: 69.04

Australia 53/1   EJM Cowan 22* (53b 4x4)   S Shillingford 0.5-0-0-1

Roach to Cowan, OUT, Roach has got him with the third ball back. Cowan asks for a delayed review. This is touch and go on those 15 seconds. Anyway, this is full again, swings in a little, beats his bat, which seems to have swung across a little, and half the ball hits him in line with off, which means we get an "on-field call" verdict. Cowan has to go, and Australia are a review down too

EJM Cowan lbw b Roach 28 (106m 74b 5x4 0x6) SR: 37.83

Australia 65/2   SR Watson 6* (31b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 5.3-1-26-1

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   SR Watson 17* (53b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 9.3-2-42-2

Deonarine to Clarke, OUT, short, long hop, Clarke has hooked him straight down deep square leg. What a bowling change. Faz Mohammed goes: "Michael Clarke... drowning in honey." It's the offies' trick. Bowled Deonarine, caught Shillingford. Clarke gets low down because of the low bounce in the pitch, and pulls this. Slight top edge, and Shillingford accepts delightfully. Clarke can't believe this. Music goes wild at the Oval

MJ Clarke c Shillingford b Deonarine 45 (129m 99b 8x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Australia 167/4   SR Watson 54* (151b 7x4)   N Deonarine 5.1-0-13-1

Shillingford to Watson, OUT, Watson goes between 50 and 100 again. Sharp catch for Barath at short leg. Watson leaves the crease again, Shillingford pushes this in flatter and shorter of what Watto expects it to be. He ends up pushing bat and pad at it, and gets an inside edge edge onto the pad. The ball flies off the pad, and Barath finishes a good reflex catch over the height of his shoulder

SR Watson c Barath b Shillingford 56 (214m 172b 7x4 0x6) SR: 32.55

Australia 178/5   MEK Hussey 8* (27b 1x4)   S Shillingford 25-8-46-2

Roach to Wade, OUT, Roach is on today. Lovely start for him. After the one that seamed in beating the inside edge, he gets one to leave the left-hand batsman. Beautiful line and length too. Just short of driving length, on off, making him play, and then leaving him. The edge is duly taken, and the catch completed low at first slip

MS Wade c Bravo b Roach 11 (67m 49b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.44

Australia 208/6   MEK Hussey 26* (89b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 18.2-4-77-3

Deonarine to Hussey, OUT, a most unHussey-like dismissal. This is soft, but West Indies have deserved some luck. Just an innocuous little length ball outside off, Hussey pushes at it, slightly loosely, and hits it waist high to short extra cover. Deonarine has broken yet another partnership, and Hussey is cross with himself

MEK Hussey c Brathwaite b Deonarine 73 (240m 207b 4x4 1x6) SR: 35.26

Australia 297/7   JL Pattinson 32* (118b 5x4)   N Deonarine 19.2-5-32-2

Shillingford to Pattinson, OUT, after one time, it is two time. They have waited hours for one edge, but like buses two have followed each other. Both set batsmen gone. Shilly bowls a slow offbreak on middle and leg, Patto's bat turns early, and it lobs off the leading edge. They nearly make a meal of it as nobody calls for it. Barath has takes a few steps back from silly point to catch, but hang on. Bravo moves in late from cover, and takes the catch. Barath is wondering where the ball is. All's well, though

JL Pattinson c Bravo b Shillingford 32 (154m 119b 5x4 0x6) SR: 26.89

Australia 297/8   BW Hilfenhaus 0* (4b)   S Shillingford 47.1-16-87-3

Roach to Hilfenhaus, OUT, Bowled'im. No DRS here. This one nips back in from short of a length, from just outside off. Hits the thigh pad outside the line of leg, but the ricochet hits the stumps

BW Hilfenhaus b Roach 5 (19m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Australia 309/9   NM Lyon 7* (13b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 26.4-5-103-4

Roach to Beer, OUT, Beer reviews now. He has been given out lbw as he has shuffled too far across. This is short of a length, nips in from outside off, Beer is across, his inside edge is beaten, and he is hit high on the pad, in front of middle and leg. Erasmus gives him out immediately, Beer reviews immediately. The replays show it to be hitting the top of leg, which means he is gone, and Roach gets five

MA Beer lbw b Roach 2 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 311/10   NM Lyon 7* (13b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 27-5-105-5
