16.5 to MM Ali, swung high into the leg side, Smith is under it at deep midwicket... taken on rope despite a juggle! Or was it? The TV umpire is going to take a long look at this. Smith was very close as he took catch, his heel right on the boundary marker, and did it just touch? He then tossed the ball up and walked in to catch it a second time, just to be sure. But there's no conclusive evidence and after a moment's deliberation, David Millns is happy to send Moeen on his way. 119/5
1.5 to T Banton, caught behind!. Brilliant work from Hazlewood. Pitching it up. Inviting the drive. Batsmen in this format need no second invitation but Banton here finds that a little bit of away movement is enough to take his outside edge. As he walks back, he may even wonder if that was full enough to be going gung ho like that.. 4/1
19.1 to CJ Jordan, Jordan holes out to long-on! No pace on the ball from Richardson, swatted hard down the ground as Jordan hung back, but Smith is there, running around to take a comfortable catch. 141/6
13.3 to JM Bairstow, slogs leg side, top-edged towards the ring... and Agar hunts it down for the c&b! He's struggled for timing, despite scoring a crunchy fifty, and Bairstow won't be going on tonight. Excellent running catch from Agar, with the ball looping towards no man's land. 94/4
8.1 to DJ Malan, taken at deep midwicket! Lovely work from Stoinis, running in off the boundary, diving forward and picking up an important low catch. Just reward for Zampa who sensed Malan would go for his favourite sweep shot, held his length back, added a few extra revs to get the extra bounce that then gets the top edge. Good stuff.. 53/2
10.3 to SW Billings, tossed up, Billings reverses... gloved to slip! Zampa gets another, bit of turn and bounce and Billings' attempt to funk it through point ends up plopping a catch to Finch! Extra flight and dip for Zampa, and he gets the reward for keeping a slip in. So Billings misses out on his chance to impress. 76/3

Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Matthew Wade, 3.1 ov), 2-70 (Marcus Stoinis, 7.1 ov), 3-86 (Glenn Maxwell, 10.2 ov), 4-87 (Aaron Finch, 10.4 ov), 5-100 (Steven Smith, 12.6 ov)
3.1 to MS Wade, taken at mid-on! A skiddy back of a length ball across the left-hander. At 91 mph too. Wade tries to lift it over the fielder, but he can't get under the ball, it's too quickly onto him and he only splices it to Jordan. 31/1
10.2 to GJ Maxwell, shocker! Maxwell goes, reverse-scooping straight to backward point! He jumped around early, signalling what he want to do, but got in an awful tangle tying to thrash it over the off side and sent a steepling chance to Curran on the edge of the ring!. 86/3
10.4 to AJ Finch, bowled 'im through the gate! Rashid bags his man this time, tosses up the googly and Finch is rumbled trying to hit inside out and completely losing his shape! Spins back, smacks into leg stump and Finch is gone... two in the over for Rashid, is this where the chase turns?. 87/4
12.6 to SPD Smith, chipped back, Rashid grabs another! Smith closes the face and gets a low leading edge, just carries! Rashid gets a wicket from the final ball of his spell yet again, and Australia are having a full-blown wobble right now. 100/5
7.1 to MP Stoinis, another mis-hit, and it's taken at deep square leg. Banton's the man there, keeping his eyes on a ball swirling in the air and in the end diving to his left to keep hold of it. Curran's slower ball, the one out the back of the hand, messes with Stoinis' shape. He's into the big slog too early and ends up walking back. 70/2
