  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JL Langer c Pietersen b Flintoff 82 136 98 13 0 83.67
28.5 at last one goes to hand and again it's Flintoff who makes the breakthrough. Langer slashes at a wide one but the ball is steered straight into the midriff of Pieterson at point. A fine innings from Langer, but one must wonder why he was quite so gung-ho after the break 141/2
View dismissal ML Hayden c Collingwood b Flintoff 21 88 47 2 0 44.68
18.3 a good line and length from Flintoff and Hayden is caught fishing on the front foot; he's squared up a treat and a thick edge flies straight to Collingwood at second slip. England have the breakthrough at last and Hayden departs after an erstwhile-supportive innings 79/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Hoggard 196 464 319 24 0 61.44
126.3 Ponting's superb innings ends. He shuffled across his stumps looking to work to leg and was struck in front by Hoggard. A vociferous and pleading appeal was answered - finally - by Steve Bucknor and Ponting reluctantly turned and headed off, but not before he had aimed a massive swipe at the turf on his way back to the pavilion 467/5
View dismissal DR Martyn c Collingwood b Giles 29 79 62 2 0 46.77
47.2 goddim! A late-cut from Martyn - who has played that shot perfectly all day until now -to a ball which turned just enough -- straight into the hands of Paul Collingwood at first slip. Well, that's a massive breakthrough for England - and unexpected, too, as Martyn was looking in sublime touch. 198/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Flintoff 86 257 187 8 0 45.98
108.4 bowled through the gate as Hussey attempts a forward defensive and that's a brilliant ball from Flintoff as the timber goes flying. A good tactic from the England captain, too, coming round the wicket - Hussey had been leaving the ball all morning as the ball angled across him and this one made him play... although ultimately he missed. Again it's that man Flintoff who has broken the deadlock and that's three wickets for him 407/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Strauss b Anderson 56 153 94 5 1 59.57
141.3 Wicket! Anderson deserved that. Clarke looks to drive but it's a bit too far from him and a thick edge flies at regulation height to Strauss at second slip. 528/8
View dismissal AC Gilchrist lbw b Hoggard 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
126.6 strewth ... it's a collapse! Gilchrist played down the wrong line to a ball angled into him - a sniff of swing as well - and another raucous appeal as it hit him on the front foot. It was in line and hitting leg, and Bucknor positively raced into the decision (well, it only took about five seconds) 467/6
View dismissal SK Warne c †Jones b Harmison 17 42 26 1 0 65.38
135.3 Harmison strikes. Short, down the leg side and Warne chased, got an oh-so-feint glove to it and Bowden's crooked finger did the rest. Harmison will get many, many better wickets but few will so welcome given his tribulations over the last five sessions 500/7
B Lee not out 43 90 61 6 0 70.49
View dismissal SR Clark b Flintoff 39 34 23 3 2 169.56
149.1 gottim. The straight yorker did the job and the timber goes flying... but Clark walks off to a rousing reception from the crowd for his entertaining, and useful, knock 578/9

5.4 what a catch, that's a fine catch by Michael Hussey as Strauss pulls McGrath, a skier, to deep midwicket...Lee and Hussey converged, both eyeing the ball and Hussey crashed into Lee, stamping his spikes on Lee's legs, but kept his eye on the ball. Very well caught indeed, but Lee's in trouble here 28/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Warne b McGrath 11 27 15 1 0 73.33
5.5 GONE! Around the wicket to Cook who nibbles at this, the ball just moving away from him and it's edged straight to Warne at first slip. What a start for Australia! 28/2
View dismissal IR Bell c Ponting b Clark 50 228 162 5 0 30.86
56.2 superb from Ponting and a massive breakthrough for Australia. A superb ball from Clark, angling into Bell who drives, on the up, edging it to Ponting at second slip who drops down on his right knee, bringing his hands up close to his face to take a fine catch. 149/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Gilchrist b Clark 5 24 13 1 0 38.46
10.6 and there's the third wicket, Clark's worked him over and deserves that one. Angling into Collingwood before cutting away, Collingwood fails to move his feet and, wrongly trying to work it to leg, gets an audible outside edge and off he goes 42/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b McGrath 16 72 44 1 0 36.36
27.4 Out! A misjudgment of Gattingesque proportions from Pietersen. On a length, the ball jagged back, he had already decided to shoulder arms and the ball smacked into his back leg. It looked out before the appeal had even reached the "zat" stage and Billy Bowden agreed. Hawkeye says it was missing off stump ... certainly didn't look like it 78/4
View dismissal A Flintoff* c †Gilchrist b Lee 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
28.3 On a length and Flintoff pushes at it and an oh-so-audible outside edge to Gilchrist who takes an oh-so-regulation catch. A great ball at 146.5kph ... he had to play at it. Replays, however, show that it was a no-ball ...oops 79/5
View dismissal GO Jones lbw b McGrath 19 90 57 2 0 33.33
49.2 trapped on the crease to a full, inswinging delivery, Jones looks down at his feet as if he knows his fate but Billy Bowden is taking his time here....McGrath pleads for his wicket and eventually the crooked finger is raised. McGrath has four! It's all going Pete Tong for England 126/6
View dismissal AF Giles c Hayden b McGrath 24 61 39 4 0 61.53
61.1 Horrible shot, but what option did he have? Giles took two steps to leg and aimed a swipe at it ... the ball came off the toe-end of the bat and went high to Hayden deep cover where took a decent catch over his shoulder. McGrath was immediately mobbed by his colleagues and he emerged, grinning, holding the ball aloft 157/10
View dismissal MJ Hoggard c †Gilchrist b Clark 0 12 6 0 0 0.00
58.2 drinks did the trick! Short of a length on off stump, Hoggard didn't get over it and the edge flew to the right of Giclchrist who held a decent one-handed catch about 18 inches off the ground. 153/8
View dismissal SJ Harmison c †Gilchrist b McGrath 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
59.2 McGrath has a five-for. Slightly short, seamed back in to Harmison and he played an odd shot as the ball brushed the face of the bat and straight to Gilchrist. The appeal was half-hearted but Bowden's bent finger was raised and there was not much doubt there. Safe to say that Harmison not in the reckoning for the Man of the Match ... 154/9

15.3 from Harmison, gone. Ooh, a close call for the run out and some great work from Anderson. The ball was down leg and turned round to fine leg where Anderson flung it back in and Jones whipped the bails off. Despite a huge dive, Hayden was out by millimetres... but it took four different camera replays to confirm this 68/1
