2.3 to IR Bell, PLUMB! Great bowling by Beer! Stays around the wicket to Bell, gives him the arm ball first up, and traps him on the back foot right in front of middle stump. He expected that to turn and was trying to make room to punch through covers off the back foot. Too soon in the innings, and that's a golden duck. 7/2
2.6 to CT Bancroft, 100 kph, another arm ball! Dreadful shot from Bancroft. Has premeditated the paddle sweep and goes down early to get in position, but is beaten by pace and trapped in front of the middle stump. He looks disappointed with the decision but he won't be when he sees the replays. 7/3
1.6 to M Klinger, GOT HIM! Back of a length in the corridor and going away, doesn't quite rise enough for his attempted pull shot and he's dragged it on. Good captaincy there. Pushed fine leg back, brought square leg in and forced Klinger to go for that swipe across the line. 6/1
14.2 to AJ Tye, low full toss, angled across Tye outside off, he wants to hit this over mid-off, but gets the bottom. Hussey, having just moved to mid-off, times his jump to perfection and snaps it up. The crowd's new favourite batsman is gone.. 83/7
3.6 to SE Marsh, Oh dear, what's happening here? Back of a length on the pads, he gets bat on his leg glance, it goes slightly uppishly and finds Beer at short fine leg who takes it on the second attempt low to his right. 13/4
13.2 to AJ Turner, length ball angled into the pads, puts in a short stride, tries to clear the deep midwicket fielder with a slog, but it's a big ground and he hasn't got enough bat on that. Simple catch.. 78/6
7.4 to HWR Cartwright, Another bouncer, and this time it gets a top edge. This one climbs in the corridor from short of good length, and he gets one hand off the bat, baseball-style, as it is too fast on him and his hoick. Balloons up nicely for the keeper a few yards from his spot. 34/5

3.4 to LJ Wright, GREAT BOUNCER. There's the breakthrough. 144 kph, aimed straight at his chest and it's too fast for his hook shot. No feet, swivels slightly, top-edge, straight to fine-leg.. 31/1
11.2 to PSP Handscomb, STRANGE SHOT. Short and angling into the pads. He should have put that pull shot away, but checks his shot for some reason. Lack of intent? Don't know, but it catches the top edge and goes through at about Stanlake's height, straight to short midwicket. 81/3
7.5 to RJ Quiney, GONE! Good length on middle, tries to whip this over the midwicket boundary, but it gets a little away from his reach and he slices it straight up. Point gets under it, is patient and grabs it nicely. 56/2
