    The moment Matthew Wade has been waiting all day. Neil Wagner has come in to bat. After being hit by a few bouncers this afternoon, Wade will be looking to be right in Wagner’s ears. But we are going to have delay. The sky camera has got stuck, at around 12 feet over the pitch, right in the centre. There seems to be a power issue. Finally, it is sorted.

  • 5:07 PM IST

    61.5 Pat Cummins to Mitchell Santner, out, OUT! That is a stunning catch! The short stuff gets Santner. He was never looking comfortable and departs for a 8-ball duck. But what concentration from Travis Head! It is never easy to field for a fast bowler but Head did not move an inch. Normally, players take their eyes off and look for cover. But not Head. A short ball, right at the body from around the wicket, Mitchell cannot do much other than tamely fend at it. The ball goes straight off the face of the bat, straight to silly point who just takes it calmly. Or makes it look pretty simple.

  • 5:00 PM IST

    60.6 Mitchell Starc to BJ Watling, out, OUT! There is a faint mark on Hot Spot and Watling is caught down the leg side! A very bizarre moment for Australia. A short ball down the leg side, Watling got across and looked to fend but seemed to have missed. Now, there was a noise. Paine heard it. Or he looked to be the only one who heard it. He straightaway ran to the bowler in celebration and then started to appeal. But umpire Nigel Llong, seemingly looking frustrated at the continuous appeals from Australia all day, shook his head. For a change, Paine did not ask anyone. ANYONE. Smith at first slip did not move an inch while Starc was just looking to go back to his mark. Then suddenly, he sees his skipper go for the review and is clearly surprised, asking him whether he was sure! From the replays, to the naked eye, it looks the ball has hit the abdomen. But Hot Spot shows the tiniest of marks on the glove and then the abdomen! Nothing on the Snickometer but that does not matter. The decision is overturned and Watling has to depart. Well played, once again.

    Massive shout for a catch down the leg side! Not out says, Nigel Llong. Paine takes the review. Starc himself is not sure and seems surprised that his skipper chose to review. A TINY MARK on the glove on Hot Spot. Nothing on Snicko. But the first evidence is enough. Miracle! Paine gets two reviews right!

    60.5 Mitchell Starc to BJ Watling, no run, Outside off, BJ does not bother to play at that.
