Australia won by 75 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

1.1

Rampaul to Cowan, no run, and extra bounce straight away. Short of a length, just outside off, kicks off, and Cowan is not playing at this

1.2

Rampaul to Cowan, OUT, Cowan pads up, and he can now walk off. That's the second time in his seven-Test career that Cowan has been out offering no shot. Length ball, on off, Cowan expects it to go with the angle, but Rav gets it to swing back in, and hits him in front of off. A no-brainer for umpire Tony Hill. Ravi lives up to his reputation for early breakthroughs

EJM Cowan lbw b Rampaul 1 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

1.3

Rampaul to Watson, no run, nice little outswinger first up. Short of a length, on off, past the edge

Rampaul to Watson, no run, slightly wider, left alone

1.5

Rampaul to Watson, no run, full, swinging out, just outside off, pushed to mid-off

1.6

3.5

Rampaul to Warner, no run, full and wide, no need to play at

3.6

Rampaul to Warner, no run, well bowled. Fuller, just outside off, Warner is drawn into a drive, covering the outswing, but Rampaul has flicked the wrist on this, and this one seams away, beating the outside edge

Australia 2/1   R Rampaul 2-2-0-1

5.1

Rampaul to Warner, no run, short of a length, outside off, kicks off, 138ks, left alone. Baugh collects it chest-high

Australia 6/1   R Rampaul 3-2-4-1

7.1

Rampaul to Warner, 1 wide, bouncer from RR, 141.3ks, but too short and too high, and it is called a wide

7.1

Rampaul to Warner, 1 run, short of a length, just outside off, pushed with an open face, past point

7.2

Rampaul to Watson, no run, shout for lbw as Watson has completely missed the line of this. Length ball, middle and off, and seaming in, but the bounce is taking it over the stumps, and hence ruled not-out

7.3

Rampaul to Watson, 2 runs, Watson drives at this with an open face, on a length outside off, and he goes through the shot, placing it wide of cover

7.4

Rampaul to Watson, FOUR, swinging in, but too straight and too full, and Watson whips this away off the toes, past square leg

7.5

Rampaul to Watson, 3 runs, another inswinger too straight, and Watson whips again. This is not that full, though, and Watson is a bit restrained, and gets three past midwicket

7.6

Rampaul to Warner, no run, Sammy has dropped another catch. Oh dear. This is going to infuriate those who have been calling for Sammy's head. Regulation edge as Warner follows a wide length ball, but Sammy at third slip spills it. Chest high. Fingers neither pointing up nor down. Neither cups, nor reverse-cups. Like a hippo's mouth waiting for bread. The ball hits the thumb, then the chest

Australia 21/1   R Rampaul 4-2-15-1

Australia 26/1   R Rampaul 5-3-15-1

11.3

Rampaul to Warner, no run, short of a length, defended towards cover

11.4

Rampaul to Warner, no run, and an inexplicably loose drive from Warenr. Neither a half-volley, nor close to off, and he goes pushing at it, well in front of his body. Lucky not to edge it

11.5

Rampaul to Warner, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone this time

11.6

Rampaul to Warner, FOUR, short of a length, outside off, Warner gets the room, gets on top of the bounce, cuts this in front of square

23.1

Rampaul to Watson, no run, length ball on off, not angling in, Watson is forward to defend

23.2

Rampaul to Watson, 4 leg byes, Baugh allows four leg-byes. Could have done better. Rampaul slips this down leg, the ball hits the pad, goes ever so slowly to the left of Baugh, but bounces well in front, and then goes under his gloves

23.3

Rampaul to Watson, no run, widish length ball, left alone

23.4

Rampaul to Watson, 1 run, angling in, into the pads, pushed wide of midwicket

23.5

48.3

Rampaul to Clarke, 1 run, short of a length, into the pads, pushed past midwicket

48.4

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, swinging in, late, could be reverse. Ponting does well to driven in front of off, to mid-on

48.5

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, good bouncer, only 132.4ks, but Ponting stayed interested in it until he realised this getting head high, and had to pull out

48.6

50.3

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, length ball on off, driven on the up, but straight to mid-off

50.4

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, length ball outside off, Ponting leaves it alone. The ball swings in, Ponting has the stumps covered, but it hasn't done enough to hit the pad

50.5

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, Ponting plays at this one, probably with the previous delivery in mind. This one moves in, but not as much as the previous one, and his outside edge is beaten

50.6

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, short of a length, well outside off, Ponting gets back and across, gets an inside edge onto the pad. Rampaul appeals for the lbw, but he even if he hadn't edged it, this would have been outside the line

Australia 119/3   R Rampaul 11-5-25-1

52.1

Rampaul to Ponting, no run, full outside off, holding its line, left alone

52.2

52.4

Rampaul to Clarke, 2 runs, short of a length, outside off, short-arm-pulled wide of deep midwicket

52.5

52.6

Rampaul to Clarke, no run, fuller, middle and work, worked away, but can't beat midwicket

Australia 124/3   R Rampaul 12-5-28-1

54.1

Rampaul to Clarke, no run, dangerous leave. This would have hit the fifth stump. Length ball, not too wide, and shoulders arms without covering the off stump. The ball moves back in, but not enough

54.3
