19.5 to BW Hilfenhaus, slower ball again, pulls it and gets it high on the bat. This time it has gone in the direction he's looking in but it's up in the air and Lyon takes it at midwicket. 155/8
Moises Henriques201517.5032000
5.6 to RJ Quiney, soft! A nothing ball, short and on his hips, but he's glanced this straight to short fine. It hangs in the air for a while before reaching the fielder who hasn't had to move. 59/1
Ben Dwarshuis402536.2582020
16.2 to SE Gotch, what a catch! The replays for the stumping show it might not have been out, but there's no doubt here! Full outside off, throws his bat at it and gets an inside edge. Haddin dives at least 4 yards to his right and is aerial as he takes this one-handed. 131/4
18.2 to DJ Hussey, full outside off, backs away, gets low and middles his chop, but it goes flat and straight to Abbott at sweeper cover. 144/5
18.6 to KP Pietersen, that's an end to his misery. Full outside off, tails away from him slightly, he backs away and tries to hit it over extra cover, but the bat has turned in his hands and the ball goes high towards deep cover, who runs in, adjusts for the swerve and latches onto to it inches from the ground. Good composure. 150/6
Nathan Lyon401824.50100010
15.3 to LJ Wright, good length on middle, steps out and gets beaten by flight, wants to slog it but it's inside edge, onto the pad, and it floats up and hits the top of leg stump. Would've been out at least two other ways if he wasn't bowled. 130/2
15.5 to EP Gulbis, good length outside off, steps out and misses his swipe, Haddin has fumbled it several times before stumping him and it's been referred...out. Haddin fumbled there and had the ball jammed between his chest and gloves as he took the bails off. That might have brushed the grille, but it's just about legitimate, deems the umpire.. 130/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Michael Beer403919.7574120
13.5 to BJ Haddin, gone! He waits again for this full ball and tries to lift it in a similar manner. But this time, he's messed up the placement and it goes a lot wider - to Quiney at long-off. 93/5
Ben Hilfenhaus302518.3382130
5.3 to C Munro, back of a length on middle, charges down at it once more, goes across and connects the pull shot for once.It's flat and hard but straight to mid-on. 33/2
Scott Boland403739.2594031
4.1 to MJ Lumb, top of off! Angles it into the batsman on a good length. He clears his foot and tries to slog it over midwicket, but misses it completely and it clips the the off stump. 28/1
14.1 to NJ Maddinson, short and wide, frees his arms and goes for the cut, but he's hit this up in the air and straight to backward point. Thirteen more balls and his innings would've been a mirror of KP's earlier today, but his scratchy innings doesn't last that long. 97/6
18.5 to J Botha, oh! Bit of an anti-climax, this. Low full toss on off stump, he punches it back, gets the bottom of the bat and Boland sticks out one hand at this. He gets it, lets it bob up to erase the momentum and takes it - one-handed again - on the second attempt. 156/7
Evan Gulbis402416.0072000
10.5 to DP Hughes, great yorker. He walks across the stumps and tries to flick this middle-stump yorker, but it's too quick and catches him right in front. 70/4
Liam Bowe403518.7573110
9.5 to MC Henriques, traps him! He's stayed back to this good length ball. Probably thought this one was turning away, but it pitches and spins back in sharply and under his attempted late cut to take middle stump. Should have been forward there. 64/3
