McGrath winds back the clock as the Australian XI score 173.

UPDATE: The Australian XI have beaten the ACA XI. Scorecard here

Glenn McGrath has taken 3/18 off 4 overs to leave the Australian XI in a precarious position before a late blast by Cameron White and George Bailey lifted them to 5/173 off their 20 overs. White scored 44* off 24 balls with 2 massive sixes while Bailey scored 30* off 16, also hitting 2 sixes, with the biggest 6 of the innings straight down the ground disappearing into the 2nd tier of the grandstand.

Earlier McGrath took 3 wickets and was on a hat-trick on one stage to leave the Australian XI reeling at 5/105 off 13 overs before White and Bailey added 68 off the last 6 overs with 22 of them coming off the final bowled by  Nathan Rimmington.
