  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c Martyn b Clark 14 63 44 0 0 31.81
14.3 oh dear, shocking shot. Strauss expects one on off stump, instead it pitches on middle-and-leg and he tries to steer it into the leg-side but mistimes it completely and it carries to Martyn at short midwicket - and that's Clark's 29th wicket in just seven Tests. Yet again Strauss is dismissed on the leg-side 32/1
View dismissal AN Cook c †Gilchrist b Clark 27 90 57 2 0 47.36
20.5 gone. Cook flashes an off-drive at that one which nips across the left-hander's off stump and gets a thick outside edge. A classic set-up: Clark had been working towards that one for a while. Click here for a picture 45/2
View dismissal IR Bell c & b Lee 60 189 148 6 0 40.54
61.4 the bouncer does the trick. Lee bangs it in hard and it's on to Bell too quickly, who shapes to hook but merely sends the ball directly up in the air. 'Miiine' calls Lee, as he nearly collides with Langer, but there was nobody getting in his way as he grabs on easily. Lee's face said it all at he ran into bowl that one, and Bell's face tells a story, too, for his moment of impetuosity 158/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Gilchrist b Clark 206 515 392 16 0 52.55
145.5 and he's GONE! Collingwood is out, he's edged Clark behind, a swinging delivery driven on the up, takes a thick outside edge and Gilchrist takes the catch. He receive tumultuous applause, a standing ovation from everyone in the ground and every Australian on the pitch. A fabulous innings 468/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen run out (Ponting) 158 377 257 15 1 61.47
151.6 from Clark, Pietersen drops that down to Ponting in at short mid-on and the underarm shy takes the stumps at the non-striker's end. That's his equal highest Test score, but he just can't shake the monkey off his back that is 158. He got that score against Sri Lanka in the summer, and he's had 158 against Australia before, at the Oval in 2005. 489/5
A Flintoff* not out 38 101 67 2 1 56.71
View dismissal GO Jones c Martyn b Warne 1 10 7 0 0 14.28
154.2 tosses that up and he gets the reward. A wide, floated delivery and Jones rushes at that one, driving it up to Martyn at point who snaffles a pretty easy chance, standing firm and taking it in Australian-style, fingertips pointing upwards. Clever thinking from Warne but he was hardly excited, he didn't even smile 491/6

View dismissal JL Langer c Pietersen b Flintoff 4 9 8 1 0 50.00
1.6 short again, but this time Langer forced to play and the ball flies off the shoulder of the bat and Pietersen takes a good catch low to his right. Flintoff is mobbed by delirious team-mates as Langer slowly trudges off 8/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c †Jones b Hoggard 12 57 30 1 0 40.00
12.6 and the dangerman has gone early. A nothing shot from Hayden, to one which seamed a little bit away from him and that's pouched to Jones's left off a thin edge. There's been some good control from England and that's a great ball from Hoggard. Hayden strides off, a casual, rueful look back at the wicket 35/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Jones b Hoggard 142 353 245 12 0 57.95
82.6 and he's GONE! A terrific ball from Hoggard, superbly bowled in the corridor and just moving away ever so slightly from Ponting who came forward tentatively, prodding at it, the ball taking the outside edge and Jones swallows a simple catch 257/4
View dismissal DR Martyn c Bell b Hoggard 11 42 33 1 0 33.33
22.2 but he's gone this time! A hint of swing from Hoggard has Martyn playing away from his body and he gets a big edge on it. Ooh, now that's a good catch from Bell, low, and in his fingertips at gully. That's Hoggard's second wicket of the day and in truth he's deserved both 65/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Hoggard 91 298 212 7 1 42.92
90.4 GODDIM! That's a thoroughly deserved wicket from Hoggard, Hussey trying to leave this but was too late, got a bottom edge and the ball crashed into his off stump. Terrific, tight, controlled bowling from Hoggard - all day, even at this late stage 286/5
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Giles b Hoggard 124 318 224 10 0 55.35
157.1 goddim! Poor shot, really, a waste - swinging into Clarke and he flicks it, with a closed face of the bat and it lands in Giles's midriff who takes a good catch. Disappointing end to an otherwise fine innings 505/8
View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Bell b Giles 64 111 79 8 0 81.01
114.4 and here he goes again, he's smashed this hard, but it's miscued and it's flying down to the man at deep midwicket - and Bell clings on! Adrenaline got the better of Gilchrist there, just as he was looking all set to stamp on England 384/6
View dismissal SK Warne lbw b Hoggard 43 157 108 4 0 39.81
153.5 on with the arm, Warne caught half forward and a loud and confident appeal answered eventually by Steve Bucknor ... Warne clearly unhappy with that as he slowly turns and walks off 502/7

View dismissal GD McGrath c †Jones b Anderson 1 25 21 0 0 4.76
165.3 and this one moves away again from McGrath who replaces his straight bat with a wobbly one, edging it to Jones - it only just carried, mind - and finally Anderson picks up a wicket. And there's the end of Australia's innings. 513/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss c Hussey b Warne 34 125 79 3 0 43.03
29.6 gone! Oh dear. Don't think Strauss is too happy with that. He came skipping down the pitch, trying to work it to leg, the ball hit the pad and ballooned to short-leg who appealed...as did every Australian and Bucknor raises his finger. Replays confirm the ball missed the bat by, well...several inches. 69/2
View dismissal AN Cook c †Gilchrist b Clark 9 48 35 1 0 25.71
10.6 and he's gone this time. It was a good delivery, slanting across him, tempting him to play and play he did, edging straight to Gilchrist who took a good two-handed catch at his ankles. Nothing more than a decent line-and-length delivery and that's his fourth wicket this match 31/1
View dismissal IR Bell run out (Clarke/Warne) 26 85 73 2 0 35.61
31.6 from Warne, oh dear, what a complete and utter shambles. Pushed out into the covers, Collingwood called Bell through but Bell didn't want the run. Collingwood sprints nevertheless, Bell reluctantly agrees but is caught well short of his ground, Clarke fields from cover to Warne who throws down the stumps with ease. Disaster 70/3

View dismissal KP Pietersen b Warne 2 8 5 0 0 40.00
33.1 GOT HIM! What a ripper from Warne, pitching on leg and Pietersen tries to sweep...and it clips off stump. Massive, ripping, gripping legbreak. Warne roars his delight at Pietersen who marches off and England are now in a hole 73/4
View dismissal A Flintoff* c †Gilchrist b Lee 2 25 24 0 0 8.33
38.6 and Lee strikes! Flintoff, the big wicket, their big hope, he's gone! Lee banged that one down and Flintoff flashes at it and the ball takes the outside edge.
Flintoff stands motionless. My, my, England are in deep deep trouble 77/5
View dismissal GO Jones c Hayden b Lee 10 41 24 1 0 41.66
48.4 what a sucker punch and what a soft dismissal! A fullish ball so wide that Jones had to stretch to reach it, and he cracks it straight to Matthew Hayden in the gully who takes a good catch .... he didn't have to move much but it was travelling 94/6
View dismissal AF Giles c Hayden b Warne 0 14 8 0 0 0.00
51.6 Giles's wretched match continues with a blob. He tried kicking it and failed two balls earlier, so this time he plays at one outside leg stump, is turned square and a thick outside edge gives Hayden at slip his second catch in as many overs 97/7
View dismissal MJ Hoggard b Warne 4 27 24 0 0 16.66
57.5 lovely, lovely bowling. A big, flighted googly, 18 inches wide of off stump and it's too much for Hoggard to resist ... he shapes to drive and the ball snorts back and into his stumps, aided by a big inside edge. The height did for Hoggard there ... his eyes lit up as he saw it arcing towards him. "C'mon!" cries a grinning Warne, pumping his fist and sending Hoggard on his way with a raised index finger which screams 'You're out' 105/8
View dismissal SJ Harmison lbw b McGrath 8 25 21 0 0 38.09
62.6 but he's gone now; at last McGrath swings this in and Harmison is rapped on the pad, all of Australia roar their appeal...and the slow finger of fate is raised by the umpire. 119/9

2.2 short, wide, but gone! Bell at gully has snaffled that one as Langer throws his hands at a low cut and he's on his way. Now then, there's a glimmer for England - a dull one, still - but nevertheless that could change the complexion of this innings a touch. Not Hoggard's finest moment with the ball, that, but he won't care right now and neither will England 14/1

5.4 massive swing across the line and it's a steepling top-edge. Paul Collingwood runs back from short midwicket, steadies himself, and that a brilliant catch. Collingwood was judging that, just watching it come over his shoulder. Hayden is gone and England have a slight sniff 33/2
