The Ashes - 5th Test

Australia v England

Australia won by 10 wickets

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

89.3

McGrath to Harmison, no run, Harmison leaves that one, which arcs invitingly past his outside edge, and then rehearses his leave

89.4

McGrath to Harmison, no run, left alone again

89.5

McGrath to Harmison, no run, oh, back of a length delivery and Harmison stabs at it, missing

89.6

McGrath to Harmison, no run, Harmison steps over to that one, which is in the corridor, and decides to leave it

England 259/7   SJ Harmison 0* (4b)

90.3

Lee to Harmison, 2 runs, Harmison tucks that one away off his toes and manages to get two - England would have loved the three, there, but it wasn't to be

90.4

Lee to Harmison, no run, big call for LBW, turned down. Harmison hadn't got too far forward there but Bowden said no.

90.5

Lee to Harmison, no run, beautifully bowled once more, just outside the off stump and it's too good for Harmison who can't get anything, not even an edge, on it

90.6

Lee to Harmison, no run, past the outside edge once more

England 262/7   SJ Harmison 2* (8b)

91.6

McGrath to Harmison, no run, defended

England 263/7   SJ Harmison 2* (9b)

93.1

McGrath to Harmison, no run, defended forward

93.2

McGrath to Harmison, no run, swings that one away down the corridor and like some orange-and-purple socks in a New Year sale, it's left well alone

93.3

McGrath to Harmison, no run, shoulders arms to that one which nips back in at him on the rise

93.4

McGrath to Harmison, no run, more shouldering - that one was wider this time

93.5

McGrath to Harmison, no run, that one flies through to the keeper

93.6

McGrath to Harmison, no run, pushed up there and defended forward

England 271/7   SJ Harmison 2* (15b)

94.6

Clark to Harmison, no run, solid defence

England 274/7   SJ Harmison 2* (16b)

96.1

Clark to Harmison, no run, Clark scurries in and pushes Harmison onto the back foot

96.2

Clark to Harmison, no run, Watchful defence from Harmison ... how long will he keep this up

96.3

Clark to Harmison, no run, lovely ball ... right through Harmison's indecisive prod

96.4

Clark to Harmison, no run, better from the batsman, got behind that with more confidence

96.5

Clark to Harmison, no run, Harmison shapes to leave the ball but his reactions are a little slow and he ends up steering it - along the ground - to fourth slip

96.6

Clark to Harmison, no run, into line and stroked into the covers

England 274/7   SJ Harmison 2* (22b)

97.6

Warne to Harmison, no run, full, hits Harmison on the toe ... Warne appeals, Aleem Dar turns away and heads for square leg, leaving Warne scowling mid pitch. It pitched outside the leg-stump line

England 277/7   SJ Harmison 2* (23b)

98.6

Clark to Harmison, OUT, yorker, Harmison shapes to turn to leg but misses, the ball hits him on the full and no doubts with Bowden's decision ... that was going on to hit a third of the way up middle and leg

SJ Harmison lbw b Clark 2 (51m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33

England 282/8   SJ Harmison 2 (24b)
