Brett Lee831431.75412001
3.4 to KO Otieno, short and rising delivery, swings in sharply, tries to left hits him under the elbow and then onto stumps, Otieno fell on the ground. 3/1

Andy Bichel914224.66365120
42.2 to CO Obuya, the faintest of edges went back to defend the away swinger. 139/6

Ian Harvey702303.28241010
Darren Lehmann602223.66181000
39.6 to SO Tikolo, came rushing out, did not time it well enough, got a thick outer half of the bat and Bichel had no problems at long on as he was trying to go over the top. 131/5
43.5 to AO Suji, deceived on a slower ball, popped to Ponting at short cover who had to dive full length to make a difficult chance look simple. 144/8
