The Australian fielding, with the exception of Damien Martyn, who muffed an easy chance at first slip, was exemplary. Andrew Symonds, in particular, stood out. First, the athletic Queenslander ran in from square leg and got in a full-length frontal dive to snap up Mohammad Kaif's miscued pull shot off Gillespie. Then, at short extra cover, he threw himself to his right to pluck out of mid-air Dinesh Mongia's uppish drive, almost losing it before clutching on for dear life.
