1.1

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, outside the off stump, Hayden comes forward and shoulders arms. Touch of swing for Hoggard there away from the left-hander

1.2

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, lovely ball - that's the length from Hoggard, nice and full and just for a moment Hayden shaped to play...before leaving it alone. Again a bit of swing into Hayden

1.3

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, crisply struck by Hayden to the right of Pietersen mid-off who dives and makes a really good stop

1.4

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, just short of a good length but Hayden remains on the front foot, defending it with that enormous bat of his and growls "NO" to Langer

1.5

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, oooh so close; Hayden swings outside off stump. It wasn't the half-volley he thought it was and he was inches away from edging that, through to Geraint Jones

1.6

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, poor end to an otherwise impressive first over, drifting this one down the leg side

Australia 9/0   ML Hayden 0* (6b)
3.1

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, Hayden shoulders arms outside the off stump, warily keeping an eye on what little swing there was

3.2

Hoggard to Hayden, FOUR, the first fine shot of the morning; Hoggard pitched it up, too full really, and Hayden slams his front foot down the crease and just times it perfectly past mid-off for four. Lovely shot

3.3

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, just short of a length, not driveable and Hayden rightly leaves it alone

3.4

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, bit of swing there, encouraging sign for the bowler as it pitches just outside off stump and swings away from the left hander

3.5

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, ooh very well bowled Hoggard, causing Hayden indecision as it swings back into the left-hander this time...Hayden comes forward but hides his bat behind the pad, unconvincingly

3.6

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, excellent end to the over, Hayden again unsure of whether to come forward or back...remains on the front foot nevertheless, defending it high on the bat

Australia 21/0   ML Hayden 4* (12b 1x4)
4.4

Anderson to Hayden, no run, outside the off stump, quicker too, and Hayden watchfully leaves it alone

4.5

Anderson to Hayden, 3 runs, classy shot from Hayden clipping it off his legs wide of mid-on, Harmison gives chase once more

Australia 31/0   ML Hayden 7* (14b 1x4)
5.1

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, too wide for Hayden to worry about it, leaves it well alone. Perhaps this is Hoggard's tactic...

5.2

Hoggard to Hayden, 2 runs, no, don't bowl there - short and down the leg-side. Perhaps it was the attempted bouncer, but it certainly didn't come off...Hayden pulls it down to fine leg and Hoggard rather gets away with that

5.3

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, far too wide of the off stump. Hoggard's contracted Harmison's wayward disease

5.4

Hoggard to Hayden, FOUR, OOH but he nearly got his man there, pitching it up and Hayden drove it loosely in the air but, yet again, wide of the sole gully. And yet again it's down to third man for four

5.5

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, defended off the back foot with a solid, firm clunk of the bat

5.6

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, excellent delivery: full, straight, swinging back into Hayden who misreads the swing and is rapped on the pads

Australia 37/0   ML Hayden 13* (20b 2x4)
8.1

Anderson to Hayden, no run, crisply clipped off his legs but straight to midwicket

8.2

Anderson to Hayden, no run, now that's well bowled from Anderson, drawing him forward but Hayden is too wise and canny...leaves it alone

8.3

Anderson to Hayden, no run, clipped again off his pads but straight to midwicket once more

8.4

Anderson to Hayden, no run, fuller from Anderson, seeking swing but finding very little, and Hayden leaves it alone

8.5

Anderson to Hayden, no run, Hayden bullishly advances down the pitch, shaping to smash Anderson over the top before shouldering arms

8.6

Anderson to Hayden, no run, very well bowled, fuller and quicker but it's just wide enough for Hayden to ignore it

Australia 40/0   ML Hayden 13* (26b 2x4)
9.6

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, left alone

Australia 47/0   ML Hayden 13* (27b 2x4)
11.1

Flintoff to Hayden, 2 runs, timed off the back foot to mid-on who fields neatly...the batsmen scamper a single but it's going to be tight, there's a shy at the stumps and - oh no! - overthrows. Oh dear, that was village from Anderson

11.2

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, short and quick but it's misdirected, too straight and left alone down the leg side

11.3

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 no ball, perfect length and line, just on off stump and defended solidly. Oh, but a no ball.

11.3

Flintoff to Hayden, (no ball) 1 run, squared up by a shorter delivery but he gets decent bat on it, and they scamper a single

11.5

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, defended on the front foot

11.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, left alone outside the off stump

Australia 57/0   ML Hayden 16* (33b 2x4)
13.1

Flintoff to Hayden, 2 leg byes, Flintoff round the wicket to Hayden and ooh, that's just down the leg side - ah, it's a leg bye - and Jones palms that one down to long leg

13.2

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 run, an easy single clipped off the legs to midwicket

13.4

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, on the back foot again and that's forced to the gully where it rolls gently and that's picked up easily

13.5

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, defended this time

13.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, shoulders arms as that one sails down the channel just outside the off stump, but that's high enough - sailing way over the sticks - to leave

Australia 63/0   ML Hayden 17* (38b 2x4)
15.1

Harmison to Hayden, 2 runs, a rising delivery is controlled well by Hayden, who takes it off his nose and pulls it down and round to the 45

15.2

Harmison to Hayden, no run, that one bends well, well away from the left-hander - Harmison is struggling with his radar again

15.3

Harmison to Hayden, 1 leg bye, the bowler overcompensates for the previous delivery and this one goes down leg

Australia 71/0   ML Hayden 19* (41b 2x4)
16.1

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 run, that one pitches on leg and Hayden tries to work that behind him, but doesn't quite time the ball

16.5

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, that's a big leave there from Hayden as the ball sails down the off-side channel

16.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, good line, but a good leave, too, from Hayden

Australia 73/0   ML Hayden 20* (44b 2x4)
17.2

Harmison to Hayden, 1 run, this one wasn't timed properly either, another drive, and Pietersen does a tumbling dive to stop that

Australia 77/0   ML Hayden 21* (45b 2x4)
18.2

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, shouldered arms this time

18.3

Flintoff to Hayden, OUT, 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

ML Hayden c Collingwood b Flintoff 21 (88m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 44.68

Australia 79/1   ML Hayden 21 (47b 2x4)
