Glenn McGrath931321.44472000
4.4 to Wajahatullah Wasti, prodding his bat at it, trying to glide it away to the 3rd man, wide of the slips, but he doesn't account for the gymnastics of Mark Waugh, leaping to his right from 2nd slip. 21/1
38.6 to Saqlain Mushtaq, short and at the chest, trying to defend it away, does so, but there's a brilliant catch by Ponting at the 3rd slip, leaping a huge distance forward and to his right, ball sticks in his right hand. 132/10
Damien Fleming603015.00264042
5.1 to Saeed Anwar, inseamer to the left hander, Fleming around the wicket, Saeed trying a cover drive, inside edge onto middle and off stump. 21/2
Paul Reiffel1012912.90431020
30.1 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, coming forward outside the off stump, playing the defence close to the pad, ball makes have just shaved the outside edge, Sheppy gives it, Inzamam isn't happy and is going to double the time it takes to walk to the pavilion. 104/6
Tom Moody501723.40181010
19.4 to Abdul Razzaq, puts this one into the covers, but dispatches himself instead, onto the front foot, driving, the captain dives forward and rolls taking a good clean catch low to the ground. 68/3
36.6 to Azhar Mahmood, trying to drive on the off side, but didn't keep it on the ground, perhaps deceived by the usual lack of pace from Moody, Moody bends down the mile to catch it near the ankles. 129/8
Shane Warne913343.66362120
23.4 to Ijaz Ahmed, leg spinner, pitched up a little, on the leg stump, Ijaz onto the back foot for some reason, trying to defend, misses, into the off stump, fantastic delivery. 77/4
27.1 to Moin Khan, pushing at it wide of the off stump, trying to play it into the pads, faint outside edge, Moin isn't happy, but Bucky the Batsman Slayer gives him. 91/5
31.6 to Shahid Afridi, he was playing a sweep virtually every ball, and so indeed he gets out to it, ball was pitched up, bat goes over the top of it, into the pads, Bucknor nods his head before raising the finger after the trademarked pause. 113/7
37.2 to Wasim Akram, swinging trying to loft over the mid wicket on one knee, only problem was that it wasn't high enough and went straight to the fielder, more than a minor problem that. 129/9

17.4 to RT Ponting, seemed to be trying a lazy glide down to the 3rd man, no footwork, easy catch for Moin. 112/2
