149.2

Flintoff to McGrath, no run

149.3

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, ouch, the bouncer comes straight at McGrath and the silly billy takes his eyes off it and gets rapped on the upper arm for his troubles

149.4

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, more of the short stuff from Flintoff but McGrath's approach is better and he stands tall to defend off the back foot

149.5

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, useful delivery and that swings slightly away from the right-hander

149.6

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, that cannons into McGrath's bat and brings up a tidy wicket maiden

Australia 578/9   GD McGrath 0* (5b)
150.3

Harmison to McGrath, 1 run, tucked off his hips this time

Australia 580/9   GD McGrath 1* (6b)
151.1

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, speared up there and that's driven forward

151.2

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, chases that one down leg and is too late on the shot

151.3

Flintoff to McGrath, 1 run, oh, a good run there from the batsmen as that's dinked into space just in front of the ring on the off-side

151.5

Flintoff to McGrath, 1 run, interesting - the batsman stuns the ball with a back foot half-defence, half-attack and it's pounced on by the man at mid-off who shies at the non-striker's stumps, misses, and they scramble a run

Australia 587/9   GD McGrath 3* (10b)
152.1

Harmison to McGrath, no run, tries to pull that one and shuffles across the stumps to do so, but misses

152.2

Harmison to McGrath, no run, an easy defensive shot into the covers

152.3

Harmison to McGrath, 1 run, top improvisation from ooh-aah Glenn as he moves across his stumps, closes his eyes, and hoicks it behind square

Australia 588/9   GD McGrath 4* (13b)
153.1

Flintoff to McGrath, 1 run, too full and that's driven into the covers this time

153.5

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, defended

153.6

Flintoff to McGrath, no run, another defence, this one off the back foot and into the covers

Australia 592/9   GD McGrath 5* (16b)
154.3

Harmison to McGrath, 3 runs, firmly struck drive just wide of extra-cover

Australia 596/9   GD McGrath 8* (17b)
