Tim de Leede1014024.00404110
11.5 to ML Hayden, Hayden falls going for the broke. Slow offcutter outside off stump, Hayden has one wild swing, and edges it to Borren at point.. 73/1
19.4 to AC Gilchrist, Gilchrist is back into the hutch! Full in length, on the middle and leg stump line, driven uppishly straight to mid-on who makes no mistake. He holds on to it and only then throws the ball up in the air, unlike the earlier let off to Ponting.. 116/2
Ryan ten Doeschate1007627.60289140
20.1 to RT Ponting, Wow what a fantastic catch by ten Doeschate! Ponting smashes a low full toss, low to the right of the bowler, who swoops down in a hurry to take the catch. Fab effort.. 116/3
48.4 to MEK Hussey, Hussey goes. He smashes a fullish delivery to long-on but couldn't clear the man at the deep. He had to go for it, just one more over left.. 325/5
Adeel Raja7.506107.78156201
Peter Borren1008918.90194610
47.3 to BJ Hodge, Hodge falls. What a knock it has been. A real blitz. The end came as he tried to go for another big one. A fullish delivery, on the off and middle stump line and Hodge shapes to swing it away, misses it completely and is cleaned up.. 320/4

Nathan Bracken713324.71295100
6.3 to DJ Reekers, Bracken strikes with a slower one! Slow off cutter, on middle and leg stump line, Reekers shaped to play it to the on side, get a leading edge to cover. 36/1
6.5 to AN Kervezee, Bend it like Bracken. Kervezee trapped for a second-ball duck. Lands on the leg stump line and moved towards off, Kervezee tried to work it across the line and was rapped on the pad.. 36/2
Shaun Tait702914.14293050
7.5 to RN ten Doeschate, ten Doeschate is gone. lbw. Lands on a length , cuts in, Doeschate hops across the line, tries to work it to on side and is rapped and trapped in front.. 38/3
Glenn McGrath803324.12315000
9.2 to LP van Troost, McGrath gets another World Cup victim. Inches closer to Akram's record. wicket no 49. Full and straight on the middle stump line, straightens and van Troost, who is walking all over the crease, is caught in front.. 40/4
19.4 to DLS van Bunge, World Cup victim no 50. full in length, lands just outside off stump and shapes back in. van Bunge, who was looking in pretty good nick out there, shufled back and stabbed at it. The ball squeezed through and struck him in front of the off stump. 97/7
Brad Hogg4.502745.58204100
18.4 to TBM de Leede, Googly gets him another victim. Australia's chinaman is delighted. Lands on the off stump line, sucking de Leede into a forward prod and the outside edge is swallowed up by Hayden at slip.. 87/6
22.3 to J Smits, plumb. Fastish spin, on the off and middle and Smits was hurried. He couldn't react quickly enough and is a dead duck.. 106/8
26.3 to PW Borren, Another slog-sweep but finds Hussey at deep midwicket. Again tossed up, on the off stump line and he slapped it fast and straight to Hussey. 129/9
26.5 to MBS Jonkman, It's all over. Googly does the trick. Rips across a wrong'un, on the middle and off stump line, and he didn't pick it. Jonkman tried to work it to on side, fails to maintain balance and drags his feet out of the crease. Gilchrist whips off the bails in a flash to terminate Netherlands' innings.. 129/10
