The strong result helped Nine win the night with a 28.9 per cent share – well above its rivals on a otherwise relatively quiet Sunday night of TV viewing.
Session 1 of the cricket also performed well, pulling 958,000 viewers – well above a new episode of Border Security at 7:00pm on Seven, which had 734,000, and Vera at 8:30pm for which the ABC achieved 700,000.
In the news race, Nine’s cricket coverage boosted its news bulletin dramatically with 1.379m tuning in compared with 1.054m on Seven.
In the 8:30pm slot, Seven’s Motorway Patrol beat ABC’s Grand Designs, 577,000 to 500,000.
Ten’s highest rating program of the night was Taken at 9:15pm which had 371,000 while a repeat of children’s movie Ice Age drew 359,000.
Seven’s re-screening of classic musical, Grease, drew 422,000 viewers.
While Nine won the night in terms of main channel audience share Seven had 16.7 per cent, the ABC 12.7 per cent and Ten 9.7 per cent.
