Fall of wickets: 1-8 (David Warner, 2.1 ov), 2-60 (Mitchell Marsh, 8.1 ov), 3-84 (Glenn Maxwell, 10.5 ov), 4-154 (Aaron Finch, 16.5 ov), 5-160 (Marcus Stoinis, 18.4 ov)
10.5 to GJ Maxwell, Little's set-up works, goes wide and Maxwell slashes. Edged to the keeper. Was outside the tramline but Maxwell had moved across. Looked to go through cover but the ball took the outside edge off the horizontal bat. Maxwell collapsed to steer it but that didn't help.. 84/3
18.4 to MP Stoinis, Steered, finds backward point. Was a length ball to which Stoinis went back deep in the crease, was wide and he got bat on ball. Just found the fielder. Decent few balls here for Ireland.. 160/5
2.1 to DA Warner, Pulled straight to short fine leg! Warner shakes his head as he walks off, Adair is chuffed. Was a shortish ball just below the ribs, there for the shot. Warner swivelled and pulled, connection was good but placement wasn't. Went around chest-height to Adair.. 8/1
8.1 to MR Marsh, Edge off the cut, taken by the keeper! Was wide on a length, Marsh stood still and looked to chop it hard but managed to only tickle it. It was close to the tramline, Tucker leapt to his right and took it. Marsh walked off in disappointment as McCarthy celebrated.. 60/2
16.5 to AJ Finch, Holes out to long-on off a full toss! Finch fetched it from outside off, whacked it. Got a decent bit of connection but found Adair at a catchable height. He leaves to a good applause.. 154/4

Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Andy Balbirnie, 1.6 ov), 2-18 (Paul Stirling, 2.2 ov), 3-24 (Harry Tector, 2.6 ov), 4-25 (Curtis Campher, 3.2 ov), 5-25 (George Dockrell, 3.6 ov), 6-68 (Gareth Delany, 9.2 ov), 7-91 (Mark Adair, 12.2 ov), 8-103 (Fionn Hand, 14.2 ov), 9-136 (Barry McCarthy, 17.2 ov), 10-137 (Josh Little, 18.1 ov)
1.6 to A Balbirnie, got him! Full, straight, hint of shape back in and boom. Balbirnie shuffle across to try and tickle this into the gap at short fine leg, but went too far outside, exposed all three stumps in the process. Cummins got that to jag back in to crash into timber.. 18/1
17.2 to BJ McCarthy, pulled but straight down Smith's throat at deep midwicket. He didn't have to move an inch, but let that not take anything away from the catch because this was really struck hard.. 136/9
2.2 to PR Stirling, slaps it to mid-off! Don't think he hit that off the middle. Stirling backed away to make room and slap it over the infield but lost his timing and hit it off the toe end to Cummins, who moved low to his left to complete the catch.. 18/2
2.6 to HT Tector, pulled straight to square leg. Smith, substituting for David, takes a good catch moving to his right. Maxwell is pumped! This is a short delivery, the intent is right from Tector as he rocks back to pull but ends up hitting it straight to the fielder who is stationed just for that. Ireland are crumbling already. 24/3
3.2 to C Campher, the previous delivery missed the stumps, this one doesn't. It's the banana swing that does the job for Starc. Full, furious, fast, late inward movement and it beats Campher's inside edge as he pushes forward. pace is pace, yaar . 25/4
3.6 to GH Dockrell, and again! Rinse, repeat of the previous wicket. Full, fast, straight and a bit of tail in from outside off, Dockrell's feet is stuck on the crease as he feebly pushes at that delivery, misses the line altogether and hears the stumps rattle.. 25/5
12.2 to MR Adair, steps out to swing this over long-on, misses and Wade completes an easy stumping. Zampa went quicker and flatter to get enough fizz and turn on this delivery, Adair was completely beaten as he went though with the shot.. 91/7
14.2 to F Hand, bowled him! Goes too far across to sweep but is beaten by Zampa's drift as this smashes into the stumps. It was also a wrong'un so once the batter missed, there was unlikely to be a way out of the maze.. 103/8
9.2 to GJ Delany, excellent catch running around from midwicket! Delany looks to pull this over midwicket but ends up getting a top-edge that swirls high in the air, Maxwell and Smith were circling under it but Maxwell put his hand out to signal this was his and pulled it off in the end.. 68/6
