Chris Green401714.25101000
2.3 to MJ Lumb, backs away and backs away too far. Green does well to adjust late and fires it wide, but in line of off-stump. Lumb cannot make any contact as he reaches out for it and the ball takes out off-stump. 14/1
Clint McKay302107.0052010
Carlos Brathwaite402135.25131110
9.4 to BJ Haddin, good length ball, swings hard on the pull shot and gets a top edge that balloons to deep midwicket. Kurtis Patterson runs in a few steps forward to take the catch. Made it look very easy but that stayed up a long time and he had to cover a little ground. Never easy to judge those. 56/5
13.2 to J Botha, straight through. Pays the price for playing across the line. It was a length ball and straight as an arrow. Misses the flick as he closes the face of his bat just a tad early and the ball crashes into the middle stump. 67/8
17.5 to NM Lyon, Brathwaite's dabs are back. This one really seemed like a good hit that would go the distance but it goes straight to the fielder at deep square leg. It was a good length ball and Lyon swipes hard as he pulls it. The ball goes a long way up in the air and he seems to have got good distance on it as well. But guess what? Kurtis Patterson does not have to move an inch as he snaffles it at deep square leg. 88/9
Shane Watson401614.00131010
5.5 to DP Hughes, plumb! Walks a long way across the stumps and Watson fires a yorker bang on the stumps. He tries to clip it away to the leg side but the ball swings back late and pings the batsman bang in front of stumps. Looked out the moment it his him on the pad and the umpire takes little time to give his decision. 36/2
Fawad Ahmed401443.50131000
8.3 to NJ Maddinson, wrong'un that bounces a bit more than he would have liked. It is on middle and off and spinning away instead of in to him and he does not middle the attempted slog. Gets it off the splice and skies it to the midwicket region where Green runs in from the deep and settles under it fairly comfortably. 52/3
8.4 to MC Henriques, another attempted slog and another wicket. Gets a lot of drift on this flighted ball. He tries to go against the spin and slog it big over the leg side but gets a leading edge and skies it towards the covers region. Ryan Gibson is the fielder this time and he settles under it between cover and extra cover. 52/4
10.3 to C Munro, flat legbreak that spins back in sharply and Munro was backing away looking to slap it through the off-side. No way there was enough room to do that and he pays the price for the wrong selection of shot. Misses the ball completely and it crashes into the stumps. 59/6
12.3 to SA Abbott, swept straight into the hands of Carlos Brathwaite. It was nicely flighted and Abbott got down to sweep and picks out wide mid-on. Fourth wicket for Fawad. 65/7

Sean Abbott403629.00104100
5.1 to JM Vince, gets a top edge on the attempted pull. It is shorter in length but comes on to him quickly. Gets a bit hurried and skews it to short fine leg where Bird settles under it and snaffles it reverse-cupped. 54/1
5.6 to SR Watson, short ball, Watson swivels around and pulls and does not really get hold of it. Doesn't get the required distance and Botha at deep square leg runs forward and slides to take the catch. 59/2
