FOUR! Glenn Maxwell to Imran Tahir. Off break full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, thick edge past deep point for 4 runs. Australia squeak home! Tahir squirts another drive through the offside to the fence, and the hosts win by seven runs.Great game of cricket, that. Not a good display of batting on show, but some excellent bowling. A below par target set by Australia, but their bowling attack managed to defend it. Marcus Stoinis was the man to pick up wickets at vital times, and he proved to be the difference today. Also a mention for the last wicket partnership for Australia with the bat, that too proved to be so important. The series is levelled up at 1-1, and it goes to the decider in Hobart on Sunday.

SIX! Adam Zampa to Lungi Ngidi. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot Scoop, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That gives them a glimmer of hope. Ngidi gets hold of this, and deposits this deep over cow corner for a maximum!

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Kagiso Rabada. Yorker, off stump no foot movement driving, missed to. Comprehensively bowled. Starc arrows it into the base of the stumps, and Rabada cannot dig it out. Too quick, and too accurate. The ball slides underneath the bat to smash into middle stump.

APPEAL! Adam Zampa to Lungi Ngidi. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Carey, appeal made for Stumped. Carey thinks he has his man, but the replays suggest otherwise. A big swish and miss from Ngidi, and the back foot momentarily slides out the crease. Carey is pretty quick with the gloves, but the foot gets back in time.
