TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.96, 230 Mins)348/6
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Adam Gilchrist, 1.1 ov), 2-144 (Ricky Ponting, 22.6 ov), 3-216 (Matthew Hayden, 32.4 ov), 4-233 (Michael Clarke, 35.3 ov), 5-257 (Andrew Symonds, 40.1 ov), 6-334 (Michael Hussey, 49.3 ov)
1.1 to AC Gilchrist, Gilchrist is gone! Caught at third man. Short and wide, he has biffed them for sixes before, he goes back and across, frees his arms and it flies off a thick edge straight to Mark Gillespie. Franklin has a sheepish smile on him.. 7/1
35.3 to MJ Clarke, OMG! Clarke shoulders arms and hey presto! the middle stump has gone for a walk. Unbelievable! Comedy of errors. It was a slower one, on the middle, Clarke backed away, raised his bat and then was indecisive what to with the delivery. He just let the bat hang high and watched in horror his own demise. It went through straight, (get the bat down man get the bat down, nope) and kissed the middle stump. Clarke is gone. Bizarre. Watch it on the Youtube.. 233/4
49.3 to MEK Hussey, Fools Hussey with a slower one. From over the wicket, full and outside off, Hussey went down his knee and tried to swing it across the line, got a top edge to square-leg.. 334/6
22.6 to RT Ponting, Suddenly, against the run of play, Ponting falls. Tossed-up, full in length, on the off stump line, Ponting skips down the track and whips it, but it goes in the air and Ross Taylor, at midwicket, jumps up to grab it. Ponting was trying to get it past Taylor and ping the cow corner but he hit it straight at the fielder.. 144/2
40.1 to A Symonds, Done in the flight and Mason gets under a swirling delivery at long off. Tossed-up and Symonds charged out but it dipped outside off stump and Symonds reached out and ended up scooping it out high. It swirled as it came down, Mason went left and left, then to right, the ball came down as if its drunk, swaying and swirling and he lunged back to take the catch. Well done.. 257/5
32.4 to ML Hayden, Styris takes a beauty, running back towards the 30-yard circle. Off cutter, on the middle and Hayden has a swing across the line and ends up lobbing it high towards long on. The fielder rushes forward from the deep, Styris runs back ,gravity pulls the ball down and Styris reaches, lunges forward to grab it. Fab knock from Hayden.. 216/3

Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Stephen Fleming, 3.3 ov), 2-29 (Ross Taylor, 5.1 ov), 3-77 (Scott Styris, 11.1 ov), 4-80 (Craig McMillan, 12.3 ov), 5-89 (James Franklin, 14.3 ov), 6-111 (Brendon McCullum, 19.3 ov), 7-117 (Daniel Vettori, 21.1 ov), 8-127 (Mark Gillespie, 23.5 ov), 9-133 (Michael Mason, 24.5 ov), 10-133 (Peter Fulton, 25.5 ov)
3.3 to SP Fleming, gets him with a bouncer. Fleming is not happy. Banged in short, on the middle and off, Fleming tries to pull off the front foot, the ball bounces more than he anticipated, and thudded into his left arm before bobbing away to Ponting at second slip. They go up in appeal and Aleem Dar raises the fatal finger. No wonder Fleming was not happy, it beat the bat and went off the arm.. 21/1
12.3 to CD McMillan, nailed 'em. Full length ball pitching on off and rattling McMillan's pads. It strikes him on middle and, despite Tait delivering from a wide angle, it would have gone on to hit leg stump. Asad Rauf waits for the long appeal to subside before lifting the finger. It's the slowest death of all and McMillan has to go. Tait has struck. 80/4
24.5 to MJ Mason, And then they were one. well outside the off stump, full in length, Mason fishes at it and Asad Rauf reckons he got a itsy bitsy teeny weeny nick.. 133/9
5.1 to LRPL Taylor, McGrath gets a wicket off his first ball. Wicket no 66 for him in World cups. Banged in short, Taylor is on the front foot, goes for a pull from there and hits straight to midwicket. McGrath is obviously happy. Looks at the batsman, claps before running away towards the catcher.. 29/2
11.1 to SB Styris, Victim no 67 in the World Cups. Styris charged out a length-delivery, had a heave, got a bottom-edge and flies straight to Hayden at short midwicket.. 77/3
19.3 to BB McCullum, McCullum slog sweeps straight to Hussey at deep midwicket. Flighted up, on the off stump line and McCullum tries to sweep it to deep square-leg, instead it flies to deep midwicket.. 111/6
21.1 to DL Vettori, Another one goes down. Vettori heads for the dressing room. Hogg flighted it, on the off stump line, Vettori goes for a sweep but top-edges it to Symonds at backward square-leg.. 117/7
23.5 to MR Gillespie, googly does the trick. Floated up, on the middle, Gillespie has a slog-sweep across the line and ends up lobbing a dolly to McGrath at mid-on.. 127/8
25.5 to PG Fulton, Another googly. Another victim. Fulton is the last man to fall. It was flighted outside leg stump, Fulton shaped to paddle it fine, missed and it came back to crash into the stumps.. 133/10
14.3 to JEC Franklin, done by the change of pace. Around 111k slower one, full and outside off, Franklin goes for a drive, is early into the stroke, gets a inside-edge and drags on to the stumps. Five down and boy are they wobbling or what?. 89/5
