England tour of Australia, 2006/07 / Commentary

The Ashes - 4th Test

Australia v England

Australia won by an innings and 99 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

68.3

Warne to Panesar, no run, forward and blocked to cheers from the crowd

68.4

Warne to Panesar, no run, wristy off drive which ends with a flourish ... straight to a fielder, however

68.5

Warne to Panesar, no run, wide and left by Panesar

68.6

Warne to Panesar, no run, floated and Panesar resists the temptation to have a swing and blocks it

England 145/8   MS Panesar 0* (4b)

69.6

McGrath to Panesar, no run, resolute defensive stroke

England 146/8   MS Panesar 0* (5b)

70.5

Warne to Panesar, no run, Panesar not taken in by the googly

70.6

Warne to Panesar, no run, well blocked, but one of these two better try to hit the ball because they are unlikely to last too long and they might as well go down guns blazing

England 147/9   MS Panesar 0* (7b)

71.2

McGrath to Panesar, no run, blocked by Panesar ... has the pressure of rising to No.10 checked his attacking instincts?

71.3

McGrath to Panesar, no run, back, into line, and played with a straight bat that would have coaches purring

71.4

McGrath to Panesar, no run, but all that good work wasted as he fences at one outside off stump

71.5

McGrath to Panesar, no run, played off the back foot to point

71.6

McGrath to Panesar, no run, head over it, everything correct with that backward defensive stroke

England 148/9   MS Panesar 0* (12b)

72.2

Warne to Panesar, 2 runs, Panesar waits for it and flicks it fine on the leg side with the spin

72.3

Warne to Panesar, no run, this time he waits and waits and then lunges forward and smothers the spin

72.4

Warne to Panesar, no run, ripped back in, Warne roars for a leg-before decision which Koertzen turns down. Warne makes no attempt to hide his anger, but it might have been just about missing leg

72.5

Warne to Panesar, no run, played into the covers

72.6

Warne to Panesar, no run, and Panesar keeps this one out as well

England 153/9   MS Panesar 2* (17b)

74.1

Warne to Panesar, 2 runs, rather an ugly heave into the leg side but it's runs nevertheless. He won't last long if he tries that again!

74.2

Warne to Panesar, OUT, Panesar perishes trying to drive Warne down the ground, never getting hold of the ball and barely reaching Symonds at mid-on

MS Panesar c Symonds b Warne 4 (27m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.05

England 159/10   MS Panesar 4 (19b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
