England tour of Australia, 2006/07 / Commentary

The Ashes - 3rd Test

Australia v England

Australia won by 206 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

69.1

Panesar to Clark, no run, spears that one in on a good length and it's easily driven, softly, to cover

69.1

Panesar to Clark, no run, defended forward, eased towards cover

69.2

Panesar to Clark, 1 run, tickled round behind square and Pietersen swoops on it and wings it back in

69.6

Panesar to Clark, no run, rushes at a cover-drive and adjusts at the last minute

Australia 239/8   SR Clark 1* (3b)

70.2

Harmison to Clark, 2 runs, improvised hook - takes his eyes off it and hooks it in the air, but into space

70.3

Harmison to Clark, OUT, Clark's feet are trapped in the crease and he goes swishing at a 91.7mph (147.5kph) near-yorker which sends back leg stick and the sickening/delightful* (*delete as appropriate) thwack is there for everyone to hear. Intelligent ball

SR Clark b Harmison 3 (13m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Australia 242/9   SR Clark 3 (5b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
