Brett Lee403137.75102120
1.2 to NM Carter, Lee strikes! This one rises a touch up from a good length on the middle stump. Carter stays on the crease and tries to play against the line as it zips in. He misses the line completely and ball sneaks past through the bat pad gap and he was playing inside the line. Bowled'em!. 14/1
17.4 to J Botha, short ball and angling down the leg side, pulls that off the back foot but found the lone man at the deep square leg. 112/6
19.6 to RJ Peterson, short ball down the leg side, Peterson backs away and then ends up pulling that straight into the hands of Mooney at deep square leg... 139/7
Jacob Oram40912.25150000
2.4 to HJH Marshall, clips that straight into the hands of mid-on, straight and touch shortish.. 20/2
Azhar Mahmood403719.2583110
5.3 to BRM Taylor, superbly done. This was bowled from wide of the crease and comes in with the angle as it pitches on a length around the off stump. The line is a must play for Taylor as he prods half-forward and the ball jags away catching the outside edge and into the hands of the keeper.. 34/3
Gareth Batty301113.6680010
11.6 to BC Lara, Okay, this is done. The painful innings of Lara comes to an end. This was touch uppish and pushes quicker through air on the middle stump. Lara skips down the track, not able to generate power onto it as he chips it down straight into the hands of long-on where Mahmood pouches. It seems he tried to turn it between the long-on and deep midwicket, goes all wrong there and a wicket for Batty.. 67/4
Malinga Bandara302618.6651200
13.2 to SB Styris, another wicket and Lions falling apart, half of the side back into the hut now.. tossed up delivery from Bandara as Styris skips out and tries to clear the long-off with a lofted shot. He doesn't get the required elevation and ends up skying it and Azhar plucks it out... 72/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards403629.0095021
0.5 to ND McKenzie, back of a length delivery outside off. He stays on the crease and tries for a late dab but only manages to guide it towards the slip where Styris dives full length to his right and holds it with one hand. Superb catch that was... 3/1
2.1 to Humayun Farhat, length ball on the middle stump and straightens. Farhat moves across touch and tries to work this ball towards the leg side, misses the line and struck infront of the stumps, dead plumb.. 13/2
Johan Botha401714.25130110
16.1 to JDP Oram, tries to release the pressure by stepping out to this flat length ball, not able to get behind the line and goes past through the attempted hoick. This was pushed quicker through air and also the ball holds its line. Keeper does the rest and Botha gets his first wicket... 94/7
Kyle Jarvis401734.25111000
3.4 to Azhar Mahmood, Jarvis strikes, pitches this touch up and just outside the off stump drawing Azhar to drive on the front foot. He does rightly so but only manages an edge which ricochet and hits the pad and then back onto the stumps. This could be a very big wicket!. 18/3
17.6 to B Lee, length ball which straightens on the middle stump, he stays on the crease and tries to hoick it over the midwicket region. He can't connect it well as it skies to wide of long-on as Franklin ran across to his right and holds that without any trouble... 104/8
19.1 to M Kartik, comes round the wicket and pushes it wide on a length outside off. Kartik chips it down to long-off where Franklin plucks out another simple catch.... 118/9
Heath Streak302608.6642100
Robin Peterson301023.3380000
11.2 to GC Smith, short ball and turning back in from outside off. Smith swivels and picks the longer side of the boundary as he pulls that off the back foot and finds the sole man at the deepish midwicket. Where Marshall hardly moved an inch and catches it.. 71/4
15.3 to JS Foster, Foster backs away to the leg side to make some room, bowler drags it short and pushes wide across. He gets a top edge as he was not able to reach for it, lobs towards the extra cover where Lara holds it after couple of juggles... 92/6
Scott Styris201316.5031000
12.2 to Hasan Raza, two quick wickets for the Lions..Styris picks out the settle Raza..This was on a length and nips back in from a length as he tries to work this through square leg by getting down. He misses out the line completely and ball kisses the pad, umpires raises his finger... 73/5
