46.3

Warne to Flintoff, 2 runs, on leg stump and Flintoff calmly tucks it behind square

46.4

Warne to Flintoff, FOUR, bang! Smacked past Warne - just past him - and that's hit like a tracer down the ground for four

46.5

Warne to Flintoff, no run, ah, and the first "noice barrlin Shine" from Gilchrist as Flintoff pushes it to leg

46.6

Warne to Flintoff, no run, a touch quicker and Flintoff defends

England 107/4   A Flintoff 6* (4b 1x4)
47.2

Lee to Flintoff, no run, defended solidly on the front foot

47.3

Lee to Flintoff, 1 run, firmly prodded past gully to that short third man, or fly slip

47.6

Lee to Flintoff, no run, and Flintoff gets a thick inside edge, trying to drive it back to Lee

England 110/4   A Flintoff 7* (7b 1x4)
49.1

Lee to Flintoff, no run, off the back foot Flintoff defends, head over the ball

49.2

Lee to Flintoff, 3 runs, short, Flintoff right back in his crease practically sitting on his stumps and he pulls this through midwicket with power

49.4

Lee to Flintoff, no run, nearly! Swing and a miss from Flintoff - that's the perfect length from Lee, luring Flintoff forward

49.5

Lee to Flintoff, no run, short and wide, Flintoff tries to hit this into China and misses

49.6

Lee to Flintoff, no run, ooh blimey, a very wafty back foot poke and prodigious swing after the ball pitched

England 114/4   A Flintoff 10* (12b 1x4)
51.1

Lee to Flintoff, no run, blocked out on the front foot

51.2

Lee to Flintoff, no run, fuller and swinging into Flintoff who pings it back past him, but without timing

51.3

Lee to Flintoff, no run, the perfect length for Flintoff; short of a length, Flintoff tries to bash it off the back foot with concrete-like arms, and misses. Not much of a cross-batted cutter, is Flintoff - and he needs to be on these pitches

51.4

Lee to Flintoff, 2 runs, clunked through the covers

51.5

Lee to Flintoff, 1 run, punched through midwicket

England 117/4   A Flintoff 13* (17b 1x4)
52.1

Warne to Flintoff, no run, on leg stump, no major turn and it's firmly blocked out

52.2

Warne to Flintoff, no run, the flipper! Quicker, straighter, Flintoff defends without ever moving his feet

52.3

Warne to Flintoff, no run, on middle-and-off this time - quicker, too - and Flintoff blocks it out

52.4

Warne to Flintoff, no run, and he comes forward this time to this classical leg break

52.5

Warne to Flintoff, no run, ripper, Jaffa, ripper! Fizzing past Flintoff's meek forward poke

52.6

Warne to Flintoff, no run, and it's defended on the back foot to end the over

England 117/4   A Flintoff 13* (23b 1x4)
53.4

Clark to Flintoff, no run, Flintoff tries to work it through midwicket but can't time it

53.5

Clark to Flintoff, no run, angling into Flintoff whose head falls away to the off side, consequently he is in no position to play the shot and the ball raps him on the pad before bobbling out to leg

53.6

Clark to Flintoff, no run, left alone outside off

England 118/4   A Flintoff 13* (26b 1x4)
54.5

Warne to Flintoff, no run, firmly defended by Flintoff

54.6

Warne to Flintoff, no run, big, big turn for Warne and Flintoff, this time, is beaten

Clark to Flintoff, no run, defended on the back foot quite solidly

55.4

Clark to Flintoff, no run, firmly, solidly pushed out into the covers

55.5

Clark to Flintoff, OUT, outside Flintoff's off stump, a touch more bounce but it's in the perfect channel. He prods at it with a stiff, concrete-like front leg and the ball flies to Warne who takes a simple catch

A Flintoff c Warne b Clark 13 (36m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.93

England 122/5   A Flintoff 13 (31b 1x4)
