Toss: Australia, bat
It will be Nathan Hoy to bowl the first over of the game. He's been really sharp all tour long, but has not yet been rewarded with a big haul of wickets. Perhaps today is his day?Code:Australia innings Runs 4 6 AC Gilchrist lbw b Pickup 18 (36) 2 0 SM Katich c Markus b Pickup 55 (80) 5 0 RT Ponting c Dauth b Robbins 55 (72) 5 0 PA Jaques run out (Goff) 3 (2) 0 0 DR Martyn lbw b Halsey 0 (2) 0 0 A Symonds b Pickup 0 (6) 0 0 MJ Clarke c Goff b Hoy 34 (30) 2 0 GB Hogg c Chaulk b Hoy 1 (8) 0 0 B Lee not out 38 (29) 4 0 NW Bracken c Chaulk b Rose 11 (14) 1 0 SR Clark c Chaulk b Robbins 5 (3) 1 0 Extras 19 Total (47.1 overs) 240 FoW: 1/59 (Gilchrist), 2/103 (Katich), 3/106 (Jaques), 4/106 (Martyn), 5/111 (Symonds), 6/171 (Clarke), 7/175 (Hogg), 8/194 (Ponting), 9/233 (Bracken), 10/240 (Clark) NS Hoy 10-1-37-2 XPA Rose 8-1-41-1 LA Camps 7-0-44-0 NS Pickup 10-1-66-3 TC Halsey 6-1-31-1 MJ Robbins 5.1-0-18-2
0.1 Hoy to Gilchrist: BEATEN! Good length and a bit of movement and Gilchrist was lucky there.
Xavier Rose will take up the attack from the other end. Much like his bowling partner, Rose has not had the success he has deserved in this series.
1.5 Rose to Katich: that's tailing back in... loud shout! Given not out by the umpire, but that was close!
1.6 Rose to Katich: full and pushed to cover - no run.
And that ends the second consecutive maiden of the innings! Incredible!
2.1 Hoy to Gilchrist: turned off the hip and he scampers a single. The first run of the match!
4.1 Hoy to Katich: too short and thumped away past the diving midwicket for FOUR!
5.4 Rose to Gilchrist: pitched up and driven past midoff. Lovely shot - FOUR!
6.1 Hoy to Gilchrist: BANG! Just a little bit of width and punished! FOUR!
8.6 Hoy to Gilchrist: down the legside and it's beaten Chaulk to go for FOUR! A wide goes to the boundary. Oh dear... Hoy is losing his way here...
9.1 Rose to Katich: full face of the bat and that races through the covers for FOUR!
The hero of yesterday, Camps is into the attack for the struggling Hoy...
10.6 Camps to Katich: played at his feet and a quick single. Good run to break up the maiden over attempt.
14.5 Camps to Katich: leading edge! DROPPED! Neil Pickup has dropped a sitter at midoff. Oh dear..
14.6 Camps to Katich: DRIVEN! DROPPED again! Unbelievable! This one was hit harder but once more straight at him, and Pickup has floored a virtual sitter! Two in two!
And as if scripted, it's Pickup who will replace Rose after a good opening spell. He has a lot to make up for...
15.4 Pickup to Gilchrist: he goes back and... HOWZAT?!? Plumb! Pickup has pulled one back. Misjudged by Gilchrist and the CW XI have broken through.
17.3 Pickup to Katich: he backs away and SMACK! Past point for FOUR! Katich not intent on letting Pickup forget those two drops.
17.5 Pickup to Katich: AGAIN! Too short and punished with the cut shot - FOUR.
18.1 Camps to Katich: CRASHED away through the covers - FOUR. Camps has a glance at Pickup. Fifty for Katich...
SM Katich 50 (67 balls), 5 fours, 0 sixes
18.2 Camps to Katich: down the legside and that's another boundary off the wide. Camps falling away too now...
Halsey replaces Camps. Double spin attack.
20.6 Halsey to Katich: missed the sweep and they've appealed for it. Turned down by umpire Bucknor.
22.5 Halsey to Ponting: clipped off his toes... he played against the spin, but he timed it beautifully - FOUR!
23.1 Pickup to Katich: DRIVEN... EDGED... TAKEN! Lovely bit of bowling there. A bit of drift and he has his man driving at a wrong 'un. Smart catch at slip.
23.2 Pickup to Jaques: paddled around very fine... Halsey cuts it off to save a run... good fielding, but there get 3.Code:SM Katich c Markus b Pickup 55 (80)
24.1 Halsey to Jaques: full toss... driven... brilliant stop! And a mixup here! Goff fires to the 'keeper... direct hit! He's walking! Jaques goes!
24.3 Halsey to Martyn: HOW IZ THAT?!? GONE! Martyn doesn't trouble the score. Halsey picks him up with a googly. What a turn around!Code:PA Jaques run out (Goff) 3 (2)
25.1 Pickup to Ponting: long hop dispatched to the midwicket fence - FOUR.Code:DR Martyn lbw b Halsey 0 (2)
25.2 Pickup to Ponting: late cut and they scramble a single.
25.5 Pickup to Symonds: he's bowled him!!! Australia in shambles now! That one kept low and didn't turn, and Symonds tried to play it off the back foot. 5 down!
25.6 Pickup to Clarke: down the track and lofted over midoff... not timed perfectly and Camps pulls it back - 3 runs.Code:A Symonds b Pickup 0 (6)
27.5 Pickup to Ponting: and the Australian captain has had enough of this - he just swatted that one over midwicket and into the gap for FOUR.
27.6 Pickup to Ponting: sweep shot... dead square... splits the fielders! FOUR!
14 runs off the over. Australia charging back!
29.6 Pickup to Clarke: legbreak... defended - no run. A maiden over from Pickup after his last over was the most expensive of the innings to date.
30.4 Halsey to Clarke: oh dear, that's loose - cracked past backward point for FOUR!
30.5 Halsey to Clarke: BANG! He just planted his foot and smashed that back over the bowler's head for FOUR! Australia regaining the momentum fast.
31.4 Pickup to Ponting: swept around very fine and that'll be.... FOUR!
Some 47 runs off the last 5 overs, including a maiden!
Hoy returns to the attack to change things up...
34.1 Hoy to Clarke: mistimed cut and CAUGHT! Simple catch by Goff at cover point. Big wicket!
Marc Robbins is on to replace Pickup...Code:MJ Clarke c Goff b Hoy 34 (30)
35.1 Robbins to Ponting: defended back to the bowler.
36.1 Hoy to Hogg: BRILLIANT! That's a fantastic one-handed grab by Ash Chaulk. He has really come alive in this series and Hoy has another deserved wicket. Great comeback!
36.6 Hoy to Ponting: pulled away but there's a man back, so they get a single. That's Ponting's half-century. Very good innings.Code:GB Hogg c Chaulk b Hoy 1 (8)
RT Ponting 50 (55 balls), 5 fours, 0 sixes
37.5 Robbins to Lee: lofted over midoff and to the boundary for FOUR!
40.6 Hoy to Ponting: yorker length and defended back to the bowler. Ponting sees off Hoy.
41.5 Robbins to Ponting: that's a towering shot! Dauth run in from longoff but it's swirling around.. and DROPPED!... no, TAKEN!!! He looked like he'd missed it there, but that's a fantastic catch and a HUGE wicket! The debutant celebrates with his Red teammate.
44.3 Camps to Lee: CRACKED over cover... FOUR!Code:RT Ponting c Dauth b Robbins 55 (72)
46.2 Rose to Bracken: big swing! Over the 'keeper's head for FOUR!
46.3 Rose to Bracken: and AGAIN! But it's taken this time! Great reach by Chaulk!
46.4 Rose to Clark: CRACK! Cut away over slip and away for FOUR! Not a great ball from Rose to the number 11!Code:NW Bracken c Chaulk b Rose 11 (14)
46.5 Rose to Clark: flicked to long leg and the get a run.
46.6 Rose to Lee: turned off his thigh and they run one... back for a second! Great running!
47.1 Robbins to Clark: booming drive! Thin edge... OUT! All over. Excellent bowling by Robbins at the death.

Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

A thrilling ODI so far. See-sawing all the time

Err, I think you'll find this spell was completely awful. 6.6 an over is completely unacceptable at international level.Originally Posted by Scorecard
