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

48.5

Lee to Giles, no run, Lee makes Giles play from the off, right up in the groove and Giles meets it with a straight bat

48.6

Lee to Giles, no run, wide and a relived Giles allows that to pass through to Gilchrist

England 94/6   AF Giles 0* (2b)

49.5

Warne to Giles, no run, Giles right back and into line

49.6

Warne to Giles, no run, this time he comes forward and the ball spins out on the leg side

England 95/6   AF Giles 0* (4b)

51.3

Warne to Giles, no run, Giles forward, offering no shot, and the ball rips through him and onto first slip

51.4

Warne to Giles, no run, Giles looks to pad up, misses, and the ball almost bowled him round his legs. Gilchrist walks away looking to the heavens, asking for a divine explanation of how that missed

51.5

Warne to Giles, no run, this time he gets forward and blocks

51.6

Warne to Giles, OUT, Giles's wretched match continues with a blob. He tried kicking it and failed two balls earlier, so this time he plays at one outside leg stump, is turned square and a thick outside edge gives Hayden at slip his second catch in as many overs

AF Giles c Hayden b Warne 0 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 97/7   AF Giles 0 (8b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
