Shane Watson402636.50122110
0.1 to WTS Porterfield, gone! First ball. Perfect start for Australia. Was dropped in short, Porterfield responded with a hook, gets a top edge and it is comfortably taken by long leg. 0/1
14.3 to NJ O'Brien, that's the end of that. A full ball, perhaps a slower delivery, Niall aims to swing it through the leg side in the slog-sweep position and misses. 85/5
14.6 to KJ O'Brien, big wicket! Excellent over from Watson. A short ball, Kevin tried to upper-cut it down to third man and was a little half-hearted in the short which led to an edge to Wade.. 86/6
Mitchell Starc402025.00112000
3.3 to PR Stirling, another catch in the deep, this time at third man. Was a hint of width outside off, Stirling through his hands through a drive and it skewed high down towards Watson who ran around the boundary and held an excellent catch. 15/2
17.1 to DT Johnston, on target! Perfect yorker from round the wicket, right at the bottom of off stump and hits the target as Johnston tried to give himself room. 101/7
Pat Cummins402907.25115000
Glenn Maxwell201216.0062000
5.5 to EC Joyce, very soft...tossed up on off stump, Joyce tries to go over the top but can only lob his drive straight to mid-off who was inside the circle. 25/3
Dan Christian201105.5061000
Brad Hogg402215.50122000
7.2 to GC Wilson, gone! Another departs. Hogg strikes second ball. It looked pretty good, full on the stumps, straightened a fraction and Wilson was trying to play to leg.. 33/4

7.1 to DA Warner, that's the breakthrough...Warner used his feet and flicked it sweetly into the leg side but straight to the man at deep midwicket. 60/1
Paul Stirling1013013.0011100
Kevin O'Brien301816.0092000
10.6 to MEK Hussey, gone! The umpire decides that was pad first. Shaped back late into Hussey who was pushing forward and got caught in front of middle and off. 95/3
