Roach to Watson, FOUR, full and wide, Watson is not quite close to the line, but doesn't care about it. He drives through it, along the ground, and past cover

Australia 10/1   SR Watson 5* (20b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 4-1-6-0

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

Australia 18/1   SR Watson 11* (23b 2x4)   R Rampaul 3.4-2-12-1

Sammy to Warner, FOUR, that's salt for the wound. Half-volley on off, and Warner drives this powerfully past mid-off

Australia 26/1   DA Warner 9* (18b 1x4)   DJG Sammy 0.3-0-4-0

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

Australia 31/1   DA Warner 13* (32b 2x4)   R Rampaul 6-3-20-1

Sammy to Watson, FOUR, arrogant shot. Utter disdain. Just short of a length, Watson is on the front foot, just transfers the weight back, and short-arms this through midwicket

Australia 35/1   SR Watson 19* (37b 3x4)   DJG Sammy 2.4-1-8-0

Roach to Warner, FOUR, short of a length, into the ribs, short-arm-pulled away, not in entire control but he knows he is going through the vacant area over square leg

Australia 49/1   DA Warner 21* (54b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 7.5-3-14-0

Roach to Warner, FOUR, slapped away square on the off side, he stayed leg side of a ball pretty close to off stump and whacked it past point

Australia 89/2   DA Warner 37* (116b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 9.3-4-20-0

Roach to Warner, (no ball) FOUR, short and wide, Warner on his toes, top of the bounce, and then cuts it in front of point. What's more? It is a no-ball

Australia 100/2   DA Warner 45* (128b 5x4)   KAJ Roach 11-5-26-0

Roach to Warner, FOUR, low full toss, Warner is not quite forward, not quite close to the line of it, but drives it in front of point and square of cover

Australia 104/2   DA Warner 49* (132b 6x4)   KAJ Roach 11.4-5-30-0

Shillingford to Ponting, FOUR, just a little short, and Ponting is well back to pull. And this time he connects. And places. To the left of deep square

Australia 114/3   RT Ponting 11* (23b 1x4)   S Shillingford 13-3-27-1

Shillingford to Ponting, FOUR, step away and a fine stroke through the off side out for four to cover

Australia 140/3   RT Ponting 22* (48b 2x4)   S Shillingford 17.3-3-42-1

Shillingford to Clarke, FOUR, down the pitch and smashed through the off side, excellent timing

Australia 151/4   MJ Clarke 22* (42b 1x4)   S Shillingford 20-3-51-2

Shillingford to Wade, FOUR, goes after one and this time gets it out well to the square boundary

Australia 175/7   MS Wade 8* (31b 1x4)   S Shillingford 27.2-7-62-4

Roach to Wade, FOUR, down the leg side and clipped down to the fine leg rope

Australia 183/7   MS Wade 12* (38b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 15.4-5-43-1

Rampaul to Wade, FOUR, pulled out and a slide at deep midwicket fails so four more

Australia 205/7   MS Wade 22* (65b 3x4)   R Rampaul 17.2-5-44-1

Rampaul to Starc, FOUR, streaky though, full and wide and he really chased that, thick outside edge that goes miles over the slips and down to third man

Australia 219/7   MA Starc 31* (43b 1x4 1x6)   R Rampaul 18.2-5-48-1

Rampaul to Wade, FOUR, too full and wide outside the off stump and he crashed that off the front foot down to deep point

Australia 230/8   MS Wade 28* (84b 4x4)   R Rampaul 20.1-5-56-1

Roach to Wade, FOUR, crashes that past the covers and Brathwaite again slides and parries it to his partner, umpire looks at the replay and the fielder was touching the rope as he pushed it away

Australia 237/8   MS Wade 35* (89b 5x4)   KAJ Roach 19.4-5-55-1

Shillingford to Wade, FOUR, swept but this time off the middle of the bat and comfortably past the sweeper on the on side, good shot

Australia 248/8   MS Wade 44* (103b 6x4)   S Shillingford 36.3-8-85-4

Rampaul to Wade, FOUR, races towards his fifty with a punishing pull, the short delivery sits up nicely for Wade to stay back and club it in front of square, down to deep midwicket

Australia 255/8   MS Wade 49* (108b 7x4)   R Rampaul 24-6-65-1

Shillingford to Wade, FOUR, another slog and he connects well enough, in the air and down to wide long-on but not good enough for it to carry over the rope

Australia 275/8   MS Wade 57* (114b 8x4)   S Shillingford 38.4-8-98-4

Sammy to Wade, FOUR, lovely straight drive, half volley on middle and leg and driven easily past the bowler and straight, shows the full face of the bat

Australia 282/8   MS Wade 64* (117b 9x4)   DJG Sammy 20.1-7-45-1

Roach to Wade, FOUR, yells out "yeah" as soon as he makes contact, comes forward and drives wide of the covers and jumps to celebrate his hundred! A century on not the easiest wicket to bat on will always be remembered, hopefully the first of many for Wade

Australia 323/8   MS Wade 103* (143b 10x4 3x6)   KAJ Roach 22.2-5-70-1
