    3.4 Khawaja tries to muscle this over mid-off but done in by the slower ball. With all the fireworks from Hales, Khawaja is left cold and out of rhythm at the non-striker's end. Finally sees his first ball for a few overs and Bird slips in a change of pace full on sixth stump, Khawaja is out in front of this a bit overeager trying to clear the ring and winds up fluttering this gently to the man on the ring, who takes it on his haunches. 44/1
    9.5 Hales can't believe this! Half-tracker and he's gifted a catch to Silk at cow corner. Hales could've sent this over the roof but hits it too flat. Silk and O'Keefe can't believe their luck. Silk takes this simmering shot calmly at head height five yards in from the rope. 85/4
    4.2 didn't really seem like he edged this but the appeal is upheld! Stock legbreak on a good length on fifth stump, Ferguson pushes away from his body as the ball passes the outside edge, appeal from the keeper but not much support from Pope. The umpire is convinced though that there was a faint nick and Ferguson has to walk off. 47/2
    9.3 uses his feet and charges O'Keefe but done in by the lack of pace and chips this to long-on. Billings telegraphs his dance down the pitch and O'Keefe drags the length back cleverly. Billings has to reach a long way forward trying to play this in front of his body and shovels this getting too far underneath it, sending a simple catch to the man standing two yards in from the rope, taken in front of his face with palms facing out. 85/3
    11.5 flights this more on middle and off, Ross sweeps this on the length and misses through the shot too early. Hit on the back thigh low in front of off stump. Always fighting an uphill battle on an lbw shout playing that shot, the umpire doesn't take long to raise the finger. Fair decision on the replay. More clever work from O'Keefe mixing up his pace. 94/5

    12.3 Philippe misses out on a red inker! His eyes lit up with a juicy slower ball landing fuller on leg stump, tries to heave this over midwicket out of the ground but is through the shot too soon and misses, leg stump is knocked back. Philippe stays on his knees in frustration for a few moments before walking off. 128/5
    3.5 another length ball on fourth stump, this time mistimes it badly to wide long-on. Simple catch taken at head height 15 yards in from the rope. Avendano was playing one shot all innings and it finally brings about his downfall. 50/1
    6.3 slower ball produces a drag on! Lands this on a fullish length on fourth stump, Vince tries to heave this through midwicket but can't keep his hands back to adjust to the lack of pace and an inside edge clatters into the stumps. 72/2
    7.1 half-tracker sucker ball nabs him at deep midwicket. Bowls this short on the legs, but it skids on a bit and rushes Hughes trying to clear the leg side with a flat pull, doesn't get the elevation he wanted and finds Sams eight yards in from the rope. Sams takes it on his knees at thigh height. 79/3
    10.1 slower ball lands full on the stumps, skies a slog for midwicket and with the timing thrown off it swirls over square leg. Billings runs out from behind the stumps and takes the catch a few yards away from the umpire. 98/4
