57.6

Warne to Harmison, no run, steered into the gully

England 105/8   SJ Harmison 0* (1b)
58.2

Lee to Harmison, no run, firmly driven to mid-off

58.3

Lee to Harmison, 1 run, Harmison jabbed down on that very late and he tottered like an off-balance drunk as the ball squirted out into the leg side

England 107/8   SJ Harmison 1* (3b)
59.1

Warne to Harmison, no run, outside leg, Harmison tries to get bat on it but decides his pad is a safer bet

59.2

Warne to Harmison, no run, but this time he does get bat on it, defending it quite solidly

59.3

Warne to Harmison, no run, lovely flight this time on middle-and-off and Harmison comes tentatively forward

59.4

Warne to Harmison, no run, firmly defended by Harmison

59.5

Warne to Harmison, no run, again he comes forward showing good technique here, smothering the spin

59.6

Warne to Harmison, no run, half an appeal - in fact, more than half an appeal from Warne as Harmison is struck on the pad...but it was bat first

England 107/8   SJ Harmison 1* (9b)
60.2

Lee to Harmison, 3 runs, ooh and that's streak from Harmison - a nice tail-end shot, swishing outside off and edging it past gully down to third man

60.4

Lee to Harmison, 1 run, cleverly played, not sure how on earth he managed to do that. Swinging in to Harmison, he cross-batted it - a standing sweep? - and nicks it down to fine-leg

England 113/8   SJ Harmison 5* (11b)
61.1

Warne to Harmison, 1 run, ooh and he sweeps - but sweeps well, getting his massive frame down quite quickly and sweeping it in front of square

61.3

Warne to Harmison, no run, lands this outside leg, turns with immense bits and Harmison hides his bat behind the pad

61.4

Warne to Harmison, no run, squirted on the front foot to the gully, quite well played

61.5

Warne to Harmison, no run, and the quicker one from Warne this time

61.6

Warne to Harmison, no run, defended on the front foot. Harmison is cool as ice...

England 115/8   SJ Harmison 6* (16b)
62.2

McGrath to Harmison, 1 wide, massively wide - and called wide. That only just hit the cut strip...

62.2

McGrath to Harmison, no run, better - tighter line, but still too wide and Harmison again leaves it alone like a No. 5

62.3

McGrath to Harmison, 2 runs, ooh, that's more like it from McGrath but Harmison spoons it past gully, down to third man...he wants three, but just two runs available there

62.4

McGrath to Harmison, no run, Harmison takes half a step outside off, just to put McGrath off his line...but the bowler sees him, sends it down outside off and it zoots past his outside edge

62.5

McGrath to Harmison, no run, too wide from McGrath - Harmison just leaves it alone

62.6

McGrath to Harmison, OUT, but he's gone now; at last McGrath swings this in and Harmison is rapped on the pad, all of Australia roar their appeal...and the slow finger of fate is raised by the umpire.

SJ Harmison lbw b McGrath 8 (25m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

England 119/9   SJ Harmison 8 (21b)
