    4.5 caught at second slip! short of length on off stump, leaves the batsman and bounces a touch extra too, it takes the shoulder of the bat on it's way to the slip cordon and Finch dives across and catches it in front of the first slip fielder, it carried at a nice height this one, a super catch to send the big man back 14/1
    5.2 caught at first slip! So that is what Starc has been setting Powell up for. It is another swinging delivery on off stump, but the length is pulled back just a bit, only just, and it takes the outside edge and goes straight to Michael Clarke for the easiest of slip catches. Two Down 18/2
    5.5 hits middle and leg!!! Well well well, it is made me jump off my seat. It is full and swinging and fast and what not... Sarwan plays all over it and it goes through the gate and disarrays the nice lattice that the stumps are laid in. 19/3
    12.5 caught my Mr. Clarke at you know where! As simple as you like. Length delivery on off stump, moves a touch away after pitching and Bravo plays that from the back foot when probably he should have been forward, the ball takes a proper edge and goes straight to first slip 39/7
    7.1 is that caught! is that lbw! Whatever it is, it is another wicket! It is bat-pad to short leg. Starc keeps it there, full, fast and swinging on the middle stump, Dwayne, unlike Sarwan, takes a stride out to the ball, but it takes the inside edge, hits the pads and goes straight to short-leg fielder 19/4
    7.3 take this one then!! Full inswinging delivery outside off, Polly doesn't get too far forward and chops the ball back to the stumps. That's out twice in two balls in my book. 19/5
    10.5 caught at first slip! Success, triumph and fun for JF. A good start to his career and Thomas gives his wicket as a gift. It was short of length on off stump, angling across, and Thomas pokes at it, the edge flies comfortably to Clarke 28/6
    20.1 caught at midwicket! Here comes the wicket. Short of length on off and middle, Sammy tries to flick it to the leg side , but the ball gets big on him and it takes a leading edge. It could have been McKay's catch, but he slips in his follow through, but there is ample time for the fielder at midwicket to jog in and swallow that one 65/8
    23.5 No. 5 for Mister Starc! Length ball on middle and leg, swings in. Mr. Holder had moved outside leg stump to send this over the bowler's head, but he misses and loses the leg-stump. 70/10
    22.6 No. 6 is not Narine's lucky number surely. After five attempts to get out, he succeeds off the sixth delivery and edges it through to the keeper. 68/9
