The Ashes - 4th Test

Australia v England

Australia won by an innings and 99 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

65.5

McGrath to Harmison, no run, full on off stump, almost yorker length, Harmison digs it out

65.6

McGrath to Harmison, no run, outside off stump and Harmison keeps his feet planted and watches it pass by

England 136/7   SJ Harmison 0* (2b)

66.2

Warne to Harmison, no run, patted to point

66.3

Warne to Harmison, no run, turned across the right-hander and well left

66.4

Warne to Harmison, 1 run, Harmison stretched and swept that from outside off stump past short leg who was again forced to take evasive action

England 138/7   SJ Harmison 1* (5b)

67.1

McGrath to Harmison, no run, left alone

67.2

McGrath to Harmison, 2 runs, interesting stroke, certainly not in any text book I have ever seen, a top-spin lob worked into space behind square on the leg

67.3

McGrath to Harmison, no run, Harmison gropes and misses, the crowd give the appropriate oohs and aahs

67.4

McGrath to Harmison, no run, this time he leaves it

67.5

McGrath to Harmison, no run, confident drive to mid-on

67.6

McGrath to Harmison, FOUR, full, sweetly chipped with a seven iron over mid-on as McGrath stands hands on hips muttering

England 144/7   SJ Harmison 7* (11b 1x4)

68.2

Warne to Harmison, OUT, and the folly of Pietersen leaving his partner exposed is underlined as Harmison heaves a ball full and wide down the throat of mid-on who doesn't have to move

SJ Harmison c Clarke b Warne 7 (11m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

England 145/8   SJ Harmison 7 (12b 1x4)
