Kyle Mills1017217.20338220
4.6 to AC Gilchrist, caught, and a sharp catch too! That was full again outside off stump, Gilchrist gave it a fearsome whack, hit with raw power, but he didn't get the elevation, Jeetan Patel moved a few steps to his left at mid-off and took the catch just above his head. 28/1
Mark Gillespie1017617.60294231
45.6 to A Symonds, bowled him with the yorker! Symonds makes room but moving away towards leg side, Gillespie fires in the yorker and Symonds misses it, the ball crashes into the stumps. 293/5
Jacob Oram5050010.00119000
Daniel Vettori1003413.40330010
38.4 to ML Hayden, bowled him! Hayden gave him the charge and was beaten by the flight, he missed his heave over the leg side and the ball rattled the off stump. 228/2
Jeetan Patel1006716.70243211
41.5 to MJ Clarke, caught at deep midwicket, Clarke tries to clear the midwicket boundary, he hits that really hard but doesn't get the necessary elevation, he picks out Hamish Marshall in the deep who takes the catch at knee height. 254/3
Craig McMillan302618.6621100
44.1 to RT Ponting, Ponting falls after a colossal innings, he pulls that from outside off stump and didn't connect as well as he would have liked, the ball soars high and straight to Fulton at deep midwicket. 275/4

Nathan Bracken1017507.50268210
Glenn McGrath1007217.20246302
9.3 to SP Fleming, pitches on off stump and angles away from Fleming who tries to cut, it was far too close to the body for that shot and he gets an edge through to Gilchrist, McGrath gets the breakthrough for Australia in his second over. 47/1
Mitchell Johnson604818.00176020
18.3 to PG Fulton, and gone! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, ball stayed bit low after hitting the deck. Fulton drives at it with no real footwook and the edge is produced. Hayden at wide first slip dives across to his left and takes a good low catch.. 107/2
Michael Clarke904825.33251220
25.4 to L Vincent, trapped him lbw, Vincent tries to sweep and doesn't make proper contact, Clarke appeals confidently and the umpire says that's out, that's a poor decision because I don't think the ball hit the pad, replays showed the ball hitting the glove just in line of off stump. 142/3
35.2 to LRPL Taylor, bowled him round his legs! Clarke angles that down leg side from round teh wicket, Taylor moves well across his stumps and tries to sweep, the ball pitches on leg stump and straightens, Taylor misses the sweep and has his stumps re-arranged!. 198/5
