    Holder also falls

    Mitchell Starc's twin blow has brought Australia back in the game, possibly even won them the game. Finch's decision to hand him the ball has worked wonders. Holder was taken by surprise as Starc bowled a pacy-bouncer and his top edge has been caught at short fine leg. He departs for 51.
