10.4

Hoggard to Ponting, 1 run, very well bowled by Hoggard, outside off but equally very well played by Ponting who simply pushes this into the covers and scampers a single. Easy game this batting lark

Australia 48/1   RT Ponting 1* (1b)
11.1

Harmison to Ponting, no run, short, angling into Ponting who goes back - jumps back - and defends off the back foot

11.2

Harmison to Ponting, no run, crikey, that was a bit wild. Like a 60s stoner, miles outside off but somehow cutting back in a bit

11.2

Harmison to Ponting, no run, crikey, that was a bit wild. Like a 60s stoner, miles outside off but somehow cutting back in a bit

11.3

Harmison to Ponting, no run, short, wide, cracked off the back foot but Harmison is saved by the covers

11.4

Harmison to Ponting, no run, oh dear, again miles too wide

11.5

Harmison to Ponting, no run, a little bit straighter, but very short and Ponting ignores this

11.6

Harmison to Ponting, no run, and Flintoff's words of encouragement have worked, Harmison finally pitching this up on off stump and it's defended by Ponting

Australia 48/1   RT Ponting 1* (7b)
12.6

Hoggard to Ponting, 1 run, and Ponting works this off his legs for a single

Australia 54/1   RT Ponting 2* (8b)
13.1

Harmison to Ponting, no run, a touch wide down the channel and the batsman shoulders arms easily enough, jumping backwards as he does so

13.2

Harmison to Ponting, no run, closer to the stumps this time, particularly when that one nips back in off the seam - the batsman shoulders arms once more but this time has to sway back a touch to avoid being clattered in the hips

13.3

Harmison to Ponting, OUT, a big call - all the slip cordon are up and so is Harmison - oh and he's removed the imperious Ponting. Good length, nipping back in off the seam and that's pitched bang on middle. It's OK for height too and suddenly the WACA has come alive

RT Ponting lbw b Harmison 2 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Australia 54/2   RT Ponting 2 (11b)
