BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor1024724.70354011
0.6 to SR Watson, and now there's a wicket, a big one too, to cap what could be the longest first over ever! Taylor pitches very full and angles the ball in through the air, Watson expects it to move away and doesn't get his front foot out too much but the ball dips and clips him flush on the foot. 3/1
8.6 to RT Ponting, caught! Slower ball works as Ponting shuffles across and clips this in the air, indifferently, lazily, straight to Gayle at short midwicket, who falls to his right and clutches on. 35/3
Daren Powell1022912.90423000
5.1 to SE Marsh, edged and taken! Powell bowls it short of a length and Marsh, trying to steer it down to third man, doesn't get over the bounce and tickles it to Browne, silly shot that. 19/2
Dwayne Bravo1023513.50361020
44.6 to MEK Hussey, full on leg stump and a tiring Hussey can only chip that in the air down to long-on, where Marshall settles under an easy catch, ending a patient and crucial 62. 175/5
Daren Sammy501803.60151000
Kieron Pollard201105.5041000
Sulieman Benn1005415.40314110
37.6 to MJ Clarke, and Benn breaks through! He's coming around the wicket, sends in a quicker ball that pitches on off, Clarke is walking across and trying to clip through leg, he's struck in line and that was not spinning, probably taking leg stump. 135/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Brett Lee712513.57303011
0.1 to XM Marshall, and there's a wicket first ball! Marshall gets a regulation edge behind off Lee and Ronchi goes low to his right to take a catch from his first delivery behind the stumps in an ODI. Perfect start for Australia. 0/1
Nathan Bracken903203.55291010
Mitchell Johnson401413.50202021
7.5 to CH Gayle, Gayle goes on the attack again and it brings his downfall. Johnson went a touch shorter, it's onto Gayle quicker than he expected and his attempted pull lobs up to mid off where it's a regulation catch for Ponting. 23/2
Shane Watson712223.14313000
20.5 to DJ Bravo, would you look at that? Bravo, trying to work the ball across the line all innings, ends up clipping a slower ball from Watson out to deep midwicket where Hussey, focusing superbly on the ball against the sun, takes the easiest of catches, didn't have to move an inch. 49/4
34.4 to DBL Powell, timber! Watson takes out Powell's off stump with a yorker-length delivery, the tail-ender exposing his sticks and playing all over the ball. 105/8
James Hopes831912.37360110
15.2 to ADS Fletcher, silly shot sends Fletcher packing, as he looks to pull one not short enough for the shot and the error in judgment costs him plenty, the ball sneaking back under his bat to rearrange the furniture, and doesn't Hopes love it?. 41/3
Michael Clarke602634.33201100
24.4 to PA Browne, well held by White at slip, on the second attempt! Clarke works his magic again, getting this ball to spin away from Browne, who gets back and pushes and the edge is snapped up, White first fumbling and then taking it diving behind Ronchi. 53/5
24.6 to KA Pollard, what in the world is he thinking? Second ball into his innings, Pollard plays a stupid shot, just chipping the ball over mid-off and straight into the fielder's waiting palms near long-off. 53/6
30.6 to DJG Sammy, the end is nigh, with Sammy slogging that one tossed up on a length right down Johnson's throat at long-on. 74/7
