Hoggard to Langer, OUT, GODDIM! He's gone! Swinging into Langer who never came forward, the ball sneaking through the gap; it hits his pad and knocks over the off stump. What a start!

JL Langer b Hoggard 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 0/1   ML Hayden 0* (0b)   MJ Hoggard 0.1-0-0-1

Harmison to Ponting, OUT, gone! At last Harmison pitches it up for the first time this morning, the ball takes the edge of Ponting's indecisive drive and Jones takes the catch. That's the length

RT Ponting c †Jones b Harmison 75 (194m 128b 9x4 0x6) SR: 58.59

Australia 144/2   ML Hayden 64* (109b 10x4)   SJ Harmison 9.4-1-35-1

Panesar to Hayden, OUT, GOTTIM. Turn and bounce from Panesar, moving right back into the left-hander Hayden who moves back to give himself room to cut. He attacks the ball hard and a thick edge flies to Collingwood at first slip and he parries it into the air before clinging on at the second attempt. A chink, just a chink mind, of light for England now and Hayden knows it too, punching the air in disgust as he walks off

ML Hayden c Collingwood b Panesar 92 (252m 159b 12x4 0x6) SR: 57.86

Australia 206/3   MEK Hussey 32* (64b 4x4)   MS Panesar 15.4-1-48-1

Panesar to Hussey, OUT, the change has worked for England. Pitches way outside off, hardly spins in at all and that's a very thin outside edge snapped up by Jones. A wicket at last, but too late

MEK Hussey c †Jones b Panesar 103 (224m 156b 12x4 0x6) SR: 66.02

Australia 357/4   MJ Clarke 73* (94b 9x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 26.3-2-92-2

Panesar to Symonds, OUT, GOOD CATCH! Very, very well bowled from Panesar. Flighted on off stump, Symonds came forward unconvincingly and without any conviction; the ball bounced on him, it took the edge of his bat and flew, low, to Collingwood at first slip who dived to his left, and forward a few inches, to take a fine catch

A Symonds c Collingwood b Panesar 2 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 365/5   MJ Clarke 79* (103b 10x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 28-3-96-3
