33.2

Warne to Flintoff, no run, outside leg and again this turns massively on Flintoff, the new batsman, who pads it away

33.3

Warne to Flintoff, no run, flatter from Warne, firmly forward from Flintoff

33.4

Warne to Flintoff, no run, oh, dear, what a ball from Warne. Flintoff not sure what to do with it, turning from outside leg - but he at least gets his body in the way

33.5

Warne to Flintoff, no run, but he's solidly forward to this one

33.6

Warne to Flintoff, no run, outside off but Flintoff just pads it away

England 73/4   A Flintoff 0* (5b)
34.3

Clark to Flintoff, 1 run, straighter this time but that's still worked to leg

England 75/4   A Flintoff 1* (6b)
35.1

Warne to Flintoff, no run, awww, roars Warne with the effort of pitching that one on leg and watching as Flintoff defends on the front foot

35.2

Warne to Flintoff, no run, Flintoff pads up to that one and the ball pops up to short leg

35.3

Warne to Flintoff, no run, tosses that one up and it's a full bunger, low and outside off. Flintoff stops on a straight drive - still getting his eye in

35.4

Warne to Flintoff, no run, padding forward this time, bending on his knee and letting the ball crash into his pad

35.5

Warne to Flintoff, 1 run, pitches on middle and a touch short and Flintoff rocks on to his back foot allowing himself time to cut that one

England 76/4   A Flintoff 2* (11b)
36.1

Lee to Flintoff, no run, defended quietly on the front foot and then, just for good measure, he does an action air replay of that shot

36.2

Lee to Flintoff, no run, Lee's right arm strays down the wrong line on release, directing the ball down a leave-able channel outside off and indeed the batsman isn't interested

36.3

Lee to Flintoff, no run, straighter arm, straighter delivery, still outside off and Flintoff wisps a bit of an air-drive at that one, but it flies on to Gilchrist

36.4

Lee to Flintoff, 1 no ball, just over-stepping with the real effort there, but while the call is coming for no-ball, Flintoff has already pulled out of that

36.4

Lee to Flintoff, no run, a bit of shape, there, and Flintoff defends off the back foot

36.5

Lee to Flintoff, no run, cover-driven to cover, obviously enough

36.6

Lee to Flintoff, no run, spears that one in low on off, aiming for Flintoff's toes but he digs it out well

England 77/4   A Flintoff 2* (18b)
38.1

Lee to Flintoff, no run

38.2

Lee to Flintoff, no run, that's easily left alone outside off

38.3

Lee to Flintoff, no run, half-shouts for that one which flicks the thigh pad as Collingwood chases it down leg where a tumbling Gilchrist does well to grasp that with his left glove

38.4

Lee to Flintoff, no run, brings his bat down on that one with a sturdy and deliberate defence on the front foot

38.5

Lee to Flintoff, no run, ooh, short, wide of off stump and Flintoff has a big fish at that one. Why?

38.6

Lee to Flintoff, OUT, 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

England 77/5   A Flintoff 2 (24b)
