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

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, on the spot, in the groove and safely negotiated

6.1

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, fuller length and Ponting prods it into the ground

6.2

Hoggard to Ponting, FOUR, too short, neatly driven off the back foot past the man at silly extra cover - he had no chance of doing much more than getting out of the way - and it races away

6.3

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, fuller and Ponting again into line, right behind that

6.4

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, classic forward defensive shot with an extra-step flourish at the end

6.5

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, much the same but slightly more of a crouching posture as he played it

Australia 28/1   MJ Hoggard 5-1-14-0
10.1

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, peach of a start moved off the pitch, kept a bit low and that just eludes Ponting's outside edge with a play and a miss. That was bowled at 78.8mph, which is 127kph (we'll do the maths; it's the weekend after all)

10.2

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, big leave to one which pitches way outside off and swings away

10.3

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, Ponting's offering bigger leaves here than genetically-modified trees with too much growth hormone (sorry, that's a loosener from me)

10.4

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, swinging away, came forward with a solid defence

10.5

Hoggard to Ponting, 3 runs, classic straight-drive, a big backlift on the up; that nutmegs Hoggard and Harmison throws back having chased that down to long-on - he's on target, too; a good start from the big man

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, quiet defence

Australia 33/1   MJ Hoggard 6-1-17-0

12.5

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, stops on a drive as that one angles across him - Hoggard staying over the wicket, here

12.6

Hoggard to Hayden, OUT, and the dangerman has gone early. A nothing shot from Hayden, to one which seamed a little bit away from him and that's pouched to Jones's left off a thin edge. There's been some good control from England and that's a great ball from Hoggard. Hayden strides off, a casual, rueful look back at the wicket

ML Hayden c †Jones b Hoggard 12 (57m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Australia 35/2   MJ Hoggard 7-1-18-1

Hoggard to Martyn, no run, strays down leg, Martyn thinks of going for that but gets nowhere near it

14.6

Hoggard to Martyn, no run, left alone outside off and Jones takes that one

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, left alone this time

16.5

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, defended into the covers

18.3

18.4

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, left alone once more

18.5

Australia 56/2   MJ Hoggard 11-2-24-1
22.1

Hoggard to Martyn, 2 runs, great shot, waits for it and it comes slower and wideish and Martyn merely offers the face of the bat to kiss the ball and it bisects the two covers

22.2

Hoggard to Martyn, OUT, but he's gone this time! A hint of swing from Hoggard has Martyn playing away from his body and he gets a big edge on it. Ooh, now that's a good catch from Bell, low, and in his fingertips at gully. That's Hoggard's second wicket of the day and in truth he's deserved both

DR Martyn c Bell b Hoggard 11 (42m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

22.4

Hoggard to Hussey, 2 runs, neatly turned down to long leg

22.5

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, oh! super ball which slipped past Hussey's outside edge ... a nervous moment as there was a half appeal and a noise ... it was his bat clipping his pads

22.6

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, blocked back down the pitch, Hoggard swoops and throws down the stumps at the striker's end to massive cheers

Australia 67/3   MJ Hoggard 12-2-28-2
24.1

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, dramatic leave, Jones standing up whips off the bails

24.2

Hoggard to Ponting, 1 run, dropped! Short, pulled but Ponting didn't get over it and Giles, at deep square leg, spills one above his head, He got both hands to it but never really left the ground with his jump. As the crowd jeer, Giles hangs his head

44.4

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, a little bit too wide from the Hogster, and the Hussey leaves it

44.5

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, Hussey almost shapes to drive this down the ground - a high backlift swinging down on this straight delivery, defending it hard

44.6

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, ooooh Hussey flays this into the covers without moving his feet...it was a loose, slightly airy fairy wishy wafty floppy sort of shot into the cover. Hussey needs to rein it in

Australia 126/3   MJ Hoggard 15-2-31-2
46.1

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, just a bit of Hoggy wobble outside off there

46.2

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, "nnnno" is the cry from Hussey, going back on his stumps - not literally, mind - and defending it as though his life depends on it. It probably does, too.

46.3

Hoggard to Hussey, FOUR, terrific shot, shimmying down the pitch and clipping him to mid-on's left...he's timed that very well indeed, and gets four

46.4

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, pushed to midwicket

51.3

Hoggard to Ponting, 2 runs, tickled off the legs to the man at deep midwicket

51.4

Australia 158/3   MJ Hoggard 17-2-41-2
53.1

Hoggard to Ponting, 1 run, ooh, a real stretch for Ponting outside off and he did his best - or was that worst - to try to drag it back on - the ball thuds into the ground and way, way, way over leg stump, over the vacant leg-slip area in fact

Australia 159/3   MJ Hoggard 18-2-42-2
55.1

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, comes forward and defends that. "Bowled, Hoggy," observes Jones, correctly

55.2

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, leaves that one alone outside off stump

55.3

Hoggard to Ponting, no run, wings a little bit away as it pitches full but outside off and a thick inside on that one slaps into the ground

55.4

Hoggard to Ponting, 3 runs, dinked nicely off his toes out to the man at square and that's the hundred partnership and they punch gloves. Well batted, everyone

55.5

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, drives that powerlessly into the packed ring

55.6

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, defended into the covers once more

Australia 167/3   MJ Hoggard 19-2-45-2
82.1

Hoggard to Ponting, 1 run, wrong line from Hoggard, down the leg and Ponting knocks one off to midwicket

82.2

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, too wide of Hussey's off stump this time, and it's taken by Jones behind the stumps

82.3

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, just a hint of in-wobble there for Hoggard but it's too short and left alone

82.4

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, no, far too wide again. Hussey would've done well to even reach that

82.5

Hoggard to Hussey, 3 runs, that's better, a tighter line on off stump but Hussey comes forward, opens the face and guides it down through the slips - intentionally

82.6

Hoggard to Ponting, OUT, and he's GONE! A terrific ball from Hoggard, superbly bowled in the corridor and just moving away ever so slightly from Ponting who came forward tentatively, prodding at it, the ball taking the outside edge and Jones swallows a simple catch

Australia 257/4   MJ Hoggard 20-2-49-3
84.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke's doing a Ponting here, walking across his crease to the off side before sponging the ball to leg. Watch out for the reverse swing...

84.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, outside off, not quite in the corridor but not far off it, Clarke leaves alone

84.3

Hoggard to Clarke, FOUR, fine shot, confident shot from Clarke, coming forward solidly and driving him through extra cover. Elegantly played

84.4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, quite a bit of lift there, the ball taking off from a good length and Jones takes it above his head

84.5

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 run, very well bowled cutting back into Clarke, but he came forward reasonably confidently and played it to leg with soft hands

86.3

86.4

Hoggard to Hussey, 2 runs, drifting down leg, Hussey works this easily in front of square for a couple of cheeky ones

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, filthy delivery from Hoggard. We haven't seen many loose deliveries from him today, but this was certainly miles too wide for Hussey to reach

86.6

Australia 272/4   MJ Hoggard 22-2-56-3
88.1

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, swinging into the left hander who times it, clunks it, into the cover

88.2

Hoggard to Hussey, 3 runs, ah. Fabulous shot, timing it past Hoggard, past the non-striker, and Flintoff sprints back the 30 yards to the boundary - in precisely three giant steps - hauling the ball back and sending in a missile-like throw

88.3

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 run, defended on the front foot

88.4

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, solidly defended on the front foot

88.5

Hoggard to Hussey, no run, Hussey goes back this time, hammering it to mid-off who fortunately gets some body behind it. That was hit with great power, almost knocking Hussey off balance

88.6

Hoggard to Hussey, 1 run, beautifully timed off the back foot Gilchrist-style but he can't find the gap

Australia 281/4   MJ Hoggard 23-2-61-3
90.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke gets firmly behind this dibbly delivery and defends

90.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, oh, so close for Hoggard, nipping this one way from Clarke who refused to move his cemented feet, walking across and poking at the ball. Very close to the outside edge

90.3

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 run, wrong line, down leg, and it's easy for Clarke

90.4

Hoggard to Hussey, OUT, GODDIM! That's a thoroughly deserved wicket from Hoggard, Hussey trying to leave this but was too late, got a bottom edge and the ball crashed into his off stump. Terrific, tight, controlled bowling from Hoggard - all day, even at this late stage

MEK Hussey b Hoggard 91 (298m 212b 7x4 1x6) SR: 42.92

90.5

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, but it's a bit too straight and worked off his legs

92.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, this cuts back, almost knocking him off his feet but he clonks it back to mid-on

92.3

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, just a hint of movement away from the right hander who leaves it alone

92.4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, well, he comes forward but it's a tentative, miscued, closed-face attempt of a shot

92.5

Hoggard to Clarke, FOUR, CLOSE, he's tucked this off his hip - it got big on him - and just evades the diving Geraint Jones to race down for four

92.6

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, fine bowling on off stump, shaping away nicely but he shoulders arms

Australia 295/5   MJ Hoggard 25-2-68-4
94.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, pushed firmly on the front foot

94.2

Hoggard to Clarke, 4 runs, down the leg side, worked off his legs and Flintoff sprints, hard, saving four brilliantly...but they run four, and Hercules casts a rueful grin at the utter pointlessness of his running

94.3

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, good length here but the pitch is too slow for it to spit up, and therefore trouble Clarke, who blocks it out with ease

94.4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, this jags away from Clarke who leaves alone

94.5

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, impressive line from Hoggard - he really has been spot on all day - not giving an inch and Clarke watchfully leaves alone

94.6

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, and that's why Clarke is being watchful: the swinging delivery, as this little away-drifter just keeps him honest and he watches it go through, Jones moving to his right to take it

Australia 305/5   MJ Hoggard 26-2-72-4
96.1

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, very well bowled indeed, angling in to Gilchrist who is squared up. Again, he doesn't come forward sufficiently

98.2

98.3

Hoggard to Gilchrist, 2 runs, Hoggard gets his line wrong and Gilchrist quick to pounce, flicking the ball off his hips down to long leg

98.5

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, same line, same result

98.6

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, Hoggard gets that one wrong, even wider and Gilchrist has clearly decided not to nibble at this stage of the day

Australia 318/5   MJ Hoggard 28-2-79-4
100.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, just wide enough for Clarke to leave

100.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, started wide and got wider ... that would certainly have been called in a one-day game

100.3

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Hoggard perseveres with this line. It's a bit negative but Clarke does tend to nibble and that's what England are looking for with this tactic

100.4

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 bye, wide, but it hardly bounced and thwacked Jones on his unprotected knee as it shot through, cannoning into the leg side to add to his discomfort

100.5

Hoggard to Gilchrist, 1 run, flicked to deep square leg

100.6

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke shoulders arms

Australia 321/5   MJ Hoggard 29-2-80-4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke not to be lured into anything rash outside off stump

102.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, straighter line, Clarke right behind it with an oh-so-solid block

102.3

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Hoggard continues to probe like a dentist with a drill ... Clarke so far resisting temptation well

102.4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Hoggard bowls, Clarke leaves ... a pattern for the day

102.5

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, this time he does have to play and does so with authority, dropping it into the leg side

102.6

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, probing line, no shot

Australia 321/5   MJ Hoggard 30-3-80-4
104.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, squirted out to point and Bell makes a leaping semi-stop ... not that the ball was exactly travelling

Australia 325/5   MJ Hoggard 31-4-80-4
106.1

Hoggard to Gilchrist, FOUR, short, Gilchrist into line and slams that through midwicket with real oomph. It was hit uppishly but totally safe

106.2

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, straight drive, so straight it smashes into the stumps and to a fielder. Unlike Bowden, who at Brisbane reacted to any straight drive as if he was being peppered with buckshot, Koertzen barely moves

106.3

Hoggard to Gilchrist, 2 runs, extra-cover drive, Anderson chases with the enthusiasm of a man off to visit a tax inspector

106.5

Hoggard to Gilchrist, no run, firm drive to mid-off

145.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, firm drive to short cover

145.3

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 run, turned to midwicket

145.4

Hoggard to Warne, 2 runs, this time the drive beats point who makes a fairly pointless dive after the ball has passed him ... fielded by the sweeper

145.5

Hoggard to Warne, no run, another firm drive to short extra cover who must be starting to feel much like a coconut at a funfair

145.6

Hoggard to Warne, 2 runs, lofted scoopy drive type shot but it loops just over mid-off

Australia 476/6   MJ Hoggard 33-4-91-4
147.1

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, wide, left, and Jones takes it standing up

147.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, this time Clarke blocks it - that was 79.9mph (128.7kph)

147.4

Hoggard to Clarke, 3 runs, sweet drive past Flintoff at mid-off and he chases with the stiffness of a man with splints down each trouser leg

147.5

Hoggard to Warne, no run, an attempted drive which he doesn't get hold of and Harmison at mid-on goes down in slow motion to field. Not exactly elegant but he got there in the end

147.6

Hoggard to Warne, no run, no heroics tried this time and a simple block suffices

Australia 480/6   MJ Hoggard 34-4-94-4
149.1

Hoggard to Clarke, 2 runs, England getting tired now, and a misfield hardly helps

149.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke takes a breather with a block

149.3

Hoggard to Clarke, 3 runs, neat. Clarke waits and uses the pace to run the ball between gully and slip

149.4

Hoggard to Warne, no run, Warne tries to pull it - he actually decided on the stroke at about the same time Hoggard started his run-up - but he misses and a loud appeal is turned down by Steve Bucknor ... too high for sure

149.5

Hoggard to Warne, no run, this time Warne plays it on merit into the covers

149.6

Hoggard to Warne, no run, slightly hurried block - 81.2mph (130.7kph)

151.2

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, Clarke leaves that to Jones

151.3

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, plopped into the covers, nobody has the energy to run for that, either fielders or batsmen

151.4

Hoggard to Clarke, no run, nothing doing there, left alone

151.5

Hoggard to Clarke, 1 run, again worked into the leg side - Clarke has been quick to pounce on anything slightly down the leg

151.6

Hoggard to Warne, no run, Warne gets in a bit of a muddle but the net result is that his pads are again called into play

Australia 496/6   MJ Hoggard 36-4-102-4
153.1

153.2

Hoggard to Warne, no run, slightly rushed defence

153.3

Hoggard to Warne, no run, jabbed down late

153.4

Hoggard to Warne, FOUR, Warne looked to run that through gully, got a big edge and with Jones standing up, it trundled off to third man unhindered

153.5

Hoggard to Warne, OUT, on with the arm, Warne caught half forward and a loud and confident appeal answered eventually by Steve Bucknor ... Warne clearly unhappy with that as he slowly turns and walks off

155.4

Hoggard to Lee, no run, bunted into the covers

155.5

Hoggard to Lee, no run, ooh lovely little juicy tasty bit of inswing there

155.6

Hoggard to Lee, no run, little bit of movement away from the right hander there, just to keep the batsman (and us) honest

Australia 504/7   MJ Hoggard 38-4-107-5
157.1

Hoggard to Clarke, OUT, goddim! Poor shot, really, a waste - swinging into Clarke and he flicks it, with a closed face of the bat and it lands in Giles's midriff who takes a good catch. Disappointing end to an otherwise fine innings

MJ Clarke c Giles b Hoggard 124 (318m 224b 10x4 0x6) SR: 55.35

157.2

Hoggard to Clark, no run, wider of the crease to increase the angle on this, but it's fired down the leg side.

157.3

Hoggard to Clark, no run, swinging in again, but again too much

157.4

Hoggard to Clark, no run, more swing here, this is well bowled by Hoggard and Clark can't quite read the swing, preferring a book with pictures

157.5

Hoggard to Clark, no run, on off stump and pushed down the ground

157.6

Hoggard to Clark, no run, and he defends this - a wicket maiden for Hoggard. Terrific effort

159.1

Hoggard to Lee, 1 run, hammered out to Collingwood at cover who flings in a powerful throw to prevent two

159.2

Hoggard to Clark, OUT, and he's got him! Terrific ball, swinging in - quick too - to take out Clark's leg stump, picking up his seventh wicket

SR Clark b Hoggard 0 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

159.3

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, and he greets McGrath with a bouncer, but it's misdirected and even McGrath evades it easily

159.4

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, ooh lovely bowling, right in't corridor, but McGrath comes forward like a No.5. Well, a No. 9 anyway.

159.5

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, that's more McGrathy, fishing at this desperately outside off. Brilliant bowling from Hoggard - the perfect length

159.6

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, and that's well blocked out by the big man, striding forward to this inswinger and defending it back to Hoggard

Australia 507/9   MJ Hoggard 40-5-108-7
161.1

Hoggard to Lee, 1 run, and he's up to the crease, swinging into the batsman who pings it back past the bowler

161.2

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, very firmly behind this one, McGrath, and defends it with his head right over the ball

161.3

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, ooh and a fishy waft outside off by McGrath - the ball straightening, then swinging after pitching and McGrath hits the pitch with this attempted drive

161.4

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, meekly hit back to the bowler

161.5

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, huge appeal as McGrath shuffles across his stumps, Hoggard was absolutely convinced...but Bucknor reckons that was going down leg. Replays suggest it was just, just clipping the stump. Fair decision, fair enough

161.6

Hoggard to McGrath, no run, and an extravagant leave from McGrath

Australia 509/9   MJ Hoggard 41-5-109-7
163.1

Hoggard to Lee, no run, swinging into the right hander who drives it, but there's no intent whatsoever

163.2

Hoggard to Lee, no run, terrific bowling, drawing him forward and swinging into the batsman who comes forward again to defend.

163.3

Hoggard to Lee, no run, excellent stuff from Hoggard, stump-to-stump again and Lee very nearly edges this...but opens the face and guides it gently to cover

Hoggard to Lee, no run, blocked out into the leg side

163.5

Hoggard to Lee, no run, hammered into the covers but again he can't find the gap
