Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Phil Jaques, 1.4 ov), 2-16 (Brad Haddin, 3.1 ov), 3-45 (Matthew Hayden, 17.2 ov), 4-86 (Brad Hodge, 31.3 ov), 5-98 (Michael Hussey, 34.3 ov), 6-108 (Cameron White, 39.1 ov), 7-120 (Shane Watson, 42.6 ov), 8-133 (Mitchell Johnson, 46.6 ov), 9-133 (Nathan Bracken, 47.4 ov), 10-148 (Brad Hogg, 49.3 ov)
1.4 to PA Jaques, Bond strikes, Jaques sees a short ball outside off stump moving away from him and decides to smash it, he goes on the back foot and reaches far out for the ball, the ball hits the toe end of the bat and spoons to Vettori at cover who takes the simplest of catches, perhaps the nerves got to Jaques. 3/1
3.1 to BJ Haddin, bowled him! Bond pitches that just outside off stump and the ball swings in a long way, Haddin tries to hit it through the off side and plays all around it, the ball blasts between bat and pad and smashes into the stumps. 16/2
39.1 to CL White, You will not see a better caught and bowled! Bond bowls a slower ball full to White who drives back at the bowler, the ball flies low and to the right of Bond who is going the other way on his follow through, he stretches out his right hand and picks up the ball inches off the ground, rolls over and holds on, absolutely stunning catch, pure reflexes!. 108/6
47.4 to NW Bracken, Bond lets a yorker rip, but it's a slower ball, Bracken backs away and tries to squeeze it on the off side, he misses and Bond hits the stumps, Australia are in shambles. 133/9
49.3 to GB Hogg, Bond bowls the slower ball on middle stump, Hogg moves towards the off side and tries to run it past short fine leg, he misses and the ball hits wood, Bond finishes with five for 23. 148/10
17.2 to ML Hayden, gone! Right after drinks! Gillespie bowls it a touch wider outside off stump, Hayden chases it and plays a half-drive/half-cut, he nicks it straight to Fleming at first slip who takes a simple catch. 45/3
46.6 to MG Johnson, and another one goes, Gillespie bowls a slower ball on leg stump, Johnson moves across and tries to flick, he gets a leading edge that lobs tamely to Oram running in from long-on. 133/8
31.3 to BJ Hodge, Fleming fumbles and then takes it! Hodge tries to cut once again and gets a thick edge on it, it flies quickly at stomach height to Fleming at first slip who doesn't take it cleanly at the first attempt, he manages to grab it as the ball bounces off his palms. 86/4
42.6 to SR Watson, Bond takes the catch at long-off! Watson gives Vettori the charge and doesn't connect well, he gets a lot of height on it but not enough distance, Bond runs in from the fence at long-off and takes a well-judged catch. 120/7
34.3 to MEK Hussey, big big wicket! McMillan bowls on a good length on off stump, Hussey goes for the drive and ends up hitting it on the up to Taylor at cover who dives forward to take a sharp catch, Fleming's decision to use McMillan pays off at once. 98/5
