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

64.1

Warne to Mahmood, no run, a big stride forward to meet it

64.2

Warne to Mahmood, no run, turned across Mahmood and the ball ends up being taken by a diving slip ... appeals from some but not others and Koertzen unimpressed ...it came off the pad with no bat

64.3

Warne to Mahmood, no run, quicker ball, flipped to midwicket

64.4

Warne to Mahmood, no run, straight one, safely blocked

64.5

Warne to Mahmood, no run, conventional legbreak which Mahmood read and left

64.6

Warne to Mahmood, no run, full toss outside leg stump which hits Gilchrist rather than being taken by him ... the net result is the same, no run and a maiden over

England 135/6   SI Mahmood 0* (6b)

65.2

McGrath to Mahmood, no run, left alone, good judgment as that was only inches outside his off stump

65.3

McGrath to Mahmood, no run, an easier call as that was too wide to trouble the batsman

65.4

McGrath to Mahmood, OUT, as was that one, but this time Mahmood aims some kind of airy drive with only partial footwork and a thick edge is well taken by Gilchrist moving swiftly to his right

SI Mahmood c †Gilchrist b McGrath 0 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 136/7   SI Mahmood 0 (9b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
