  • 16.6 Brown to Gilchrist, OUT, Dougie nails Gilchrist. Scotland fielders mob the bowler. Plumb in front. Full and straight on the middle stump line, Gilchrist tries to swing it across the line on a bent knee. No wood on leather and the ball thuds into the pad. Dead duck.
    AC Gilchrist lbw b Brown 46 (71m 55b 7x4 0x6) SR: 83.63
    Australia 91/1 ML Hayden 41* (48b 4x4 1x6) DR Brown 1-0-4-1

  • 26.5 Haq to Hayden, OUT, Gotcha! Round the wicket again and the ball pitches on middle and turns away. Hayden tries to drive through the on side but can't account for the spin after the ball grips the surface. Loud appeal and 'slow death' Steve Bucknor raises the finger ML Hayden lbw b Haq 60 (114m 73b 6x4 1x6) SR: 82.19
    Australia 139/2 RT Ponting 28* (34b 5x4) RM Haq 0.5-0-4-1

  • 34.3 Haq to Clarke, OUT, Gotcha! Haq cleans up Clarke. Flat and fast as the offspinner pushed that one through, slightly short as well and Clarke goes for a pull but is beaten by the pace. The middle stump is pegged back. MJ Clarke b Haq 15 (29m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00
    Australia 193/3 RT Ponting 66* (60b 8x4 2x6) RM Haq 4.3-0-25-2

    Australia 274/5 MEK Hussey 3* (4b) CM Wright 8.2-0-44-1

  • 46.1 Hoffmann to Hussey, OUT, Colin Smith .... you beauty. Smart work behind the stumps. Full in length and angling away, Hussey makes no contact with his intended drive and his back foot is in the air. Smith gathers and quickly whips off the bails even as Hussey tries to get his foot down. Too close to call. Referred upstairs and after numerous viewings it has been given out. correctly at that.
