41.1

White to Anderson, 1 run, top spinner on the middle and leg, tucked towards square-leg. The camera pans to Vaughan and Collingwood sitting outside. Some of the crowd cheer, some jeer...

41.2

White to Dalrymple, 1 run, floated on the off stump line, lapped around the corner, Anderson almost turns blind for the second run, and is sent back. Wise move. He just about dives into the crease.

White to Dalrymple, no run, floated on the leg stump line, flicked to right of Michael Clark midwicket who dives to make the stop

41.6

White to Dalrymple, OUT, There you go. England shot out for 155. The awful summer continues. Short of length, outside the off stump, Dalrymple could have pulled it anywhere but he decides this is the time to end the misery and hits it right at the throat of long on.
