England tour of Australia, 2006/07 / Commentary

The Ashes - 2nd Test

Australia v England

Australia won by 6 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

0.1

Hoggard to Langer, no run, wide of off stump and Langer leaves well alone but it didn't carry to Jones

0.2

Hoggard to Langer, no run, wide and again Langer not to be tempted, although that did carry to the keeper

0.3

Hoggard to Langer, FOUR, too full, and although it did swing into the left hander Langer drove all along the ground past mid-off

0.4

Hoggard to Langer, no run, up in the blockhole and Langer in a muddle as he falls across his crease. He's prone to that early on

0.5

Hoggard to Langer, no run, more solid-looking defence

0.6

Hoggard to Langer, no run, Hoggard drifts to leg and a casual flick off the pads goes straight to midwicket

Australia 4/0   JL Langer 4* (6b 1x4)

1.5

Flintoff to Langer, no run, snorter ... short, off the seam and Langer gets everything out of the way

1.6

Flintoff to Langer, OUT, short again, but this time Langer forced to play and the ball flies off the shoulder of the bat and Pietersen takes a good catch low to his right. Flintoff is mobbed by delirious team-mates as Langer slowly trudges off

JL Langer c Pietersen b Flintoff 4 (9m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 8/1   JL Langer 4 (8b 1x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200
