The Ashes - 5th Test

Australia v England

Australia won by 10 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

100.1

Clark to Panesar, no run, hello and welcome ... Panesar gets a decent bouncer and bends low to preserve his well being

100.2

Clark to Panesar, no run, short, Panesar stands tall and steers into the gully and then gives his captain at the other end a big grin

100.3

Clark to Panesar, no run, again short, and once more Panesar stays tall, gets right over the ball and drops it at his feet

100.4

Clark to Panesar, no run, Dropped! Fuller and Panesar drives, the edge flies to Langer at third slip and for the third time he drops one there. He took off his hat and threw it in the air in disgust - but managed to catch it, at least ... his mind seems anywhere but in the middle and he buries his head in his hands ..

100.5

Clark to Panesar, no run, driven with a bit more certainty this time

100.6

Clark to Panesar, no run, leg side and Panesar gets inside the line

England 290/8   MS Panesar 0* (6b)

101.3

Warne to Panesar, no run, looped up outside off stump, blocked, and the crowd cheer and give a round of applause

101.4

Warne to Panesar, no run, slightly wider, Panesar gropes and almost chases it into Gilchrist's gloves

101.5

Warne to Panesar, no run, driven to mid-off, another cheer

101.6

Warne to Panesar, no run, legbreak, but off line and it drifts down the leg side

England 291/8   MS Panesar 0* (10b)

103.1

Warne to Panesar, no run, flighted, driven on the up and a good sprawling stop at mid-off by Symonds

103.2

Warne to Panesar, no run, text book defensive shot

103.3

Warne to Panesar, no run, Warne trying to lure Panesar with flighted balls outside the off stump

103.4

Warne to Panesar, OUT, Panesar picks the wrong ball to sweep, it started on off stump and never moved, he missed it and Aleem Dar had a simple decision to make. It's Warne's 1000th international wicket but the celebrations are so muted as to be almost non existent ... a handshake from his colleagues and a half smile from the man himself

MS Panesar lbw b Warne 0 (20m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 291/10   MS Panesar 0 (14b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
