Clark to Cook,
and he's gone this time. It was a good delivery, slanting across him, tempting him to play and play he did, edging straight to Gilchrist who took a good two-handed catch at his ankles. Nothing more than a decent line-and-length delivery and that's his fourth wicket this match
AN Cook c †Gilchrist b Clark 9 (48m 35b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.71
Warne to Strauss,
gone! Oh dear. Don't think Strauss is too happy with that. He came skipping down the pitch, trying to work it to leg, the ball hit the pad and ballooned to short-leg who appealed...as did every Australian and Bucknor raises his finger. Replays confirm the ball missed the bat by, well...several inches.
AJ Strauss c Hussey b Warne 34 (125m 79b 3x4 0x6) SR: 43.03
Warne to Bell,
oh dear, what a complete and utter shambles. Pushed out into the covers, Collingwood called Bell through but Bell didn't want the run. Collingwood sprints nevertheless, Bell reluctantly agrees but is caught well short of his ground, Clarke fields from cover to Warne who throws down the stumps with ease. Disaster
IR Bell run out 26 (85m 73b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.61
Warne to Pietersen,
GOT HIM! What a ripper from Warne, pitching on leg and Pietersen tries to sweep...and it clips off stump. Massive, ripping, gripping legbreak. Warne roars his delight at Pietersen who marches off and England are now in a hole
KP Pietersen b Warne 2 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
Lee to Flintoff,
and Lee strikes! Flintoff, the big wicket, their big hope, he's gone! Lee banged that one down and Flintoff flashes at it and the ball takes the outside edge.
Flintoff stands motionless. My, my, England are in deep deep trouble
A Flintoff c †Gilchrist b Lee 2 (25m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33
Lee to Jones,
what a sucker punch and what a soft dismissal! A fullish ball so wide that Jones had to stretch to reach it, and he cracks it straight to Matthew Hayden in the gully who takes a good catch .... he didn't have to move much but it was travelling
GO Jones c Hayden b Lee 10 (41m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66
Warne to Giles,
Giles's wretched match continues with a blob. He tried kicking it and failed two balls earlier, so this time he plays at one outside leg stump, is turned square and a thick outside edge gives Hayden at slip his second catch in as many overs
AF Giles c Hayden b Warne 0 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Warne to Hoggard,
lovely, lovely bowling. A big, flighted googly, 18 inches wide of off stump and it's too much for Hoggard to resist ... he shapes to drive and the ball snorts back and into his stumps, aided by a big inside edge. The height did for Hoggard there ... his eyes lit up as he saw it arcing towards him. "C'mon!" cries a grinning Warne, pumping his fist and sending Hoggard on his way with a raised index finger which screams 'You're out'
MJ Hoggard b Warne 4 (27m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66
McGrath to Harmison,
but he's gone now; at last McGrath swings this in and Harmison is rapped on the pad, all of Australia roar their appeal...and the slow finger of fate is raised by the umpire.
SJ Harmison lbw b McGrath 8 (25m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.09
McGrath to Anderson,
GOT HIM! He's GONE! Anderson shuffled across his stumps here and, for the fifth or sixth time, McGrath raps him on his pad, roars an appeal and finally gets his man.
JM Anderson lbw b McGrath 1 (41m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 3.57
