Harmison to Hayden, no run, play and a miss! Hayden has a go at one outside the off stump and the ball swings just enough, and just late enough, to beat the bat

Harmison to Hayden, FOUR, short and down the legside, Hayden fends awkwardly at it and the ball runs off down to fine-leg off the glove

Harmison to Hayden, no run, down the leg side, the ball clips the pad as Hayden tries to work it to the on side, and runs down to Geriant Jones

2.3

Harmison to Hayden, no run, far outside the off stump this time and Hayden watches the ball carefully but leaqves it alone to the wicketkeeper

2.4

Harmison to Hayden, no run, once again very short and a bit wide from Harmison, Hayden has no interest in chasing that one

3.1

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, full and on the off, the ball swings in late, that's just what Hoggard is looking for. Punched confidently to the off side

3.2

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, once again full and shaping in to the left-handed Hayden. This time the whipping on-drive heads to mid-on

3.3

Hoggard to Hayden, FOUR, down the leg side, and Hayden has no difficulty walking slightly across his stumps and working the ball away down to the fine-leg fence

3.4

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, Hoggard gets back on target and Hayden is up to it, covering the swing with his broad bat, playing a straight drive so straight that it clatters onto the stumps at the non-striker's end

3.5

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, once again just slipping onto the pads, Hoggard wants to avoid that. Hayden jabs it awkwardly to the on-side

3.6

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, Much better ball this time around, on the off and swinging in a touch, Hayden drives back but Hoggard fields in his follow-through and flings the ball back towards the stumps

Australia 18/0   ML Hayden 11* (14b 2x4)
4.3

Harmison to Hayden, no run, just short of a length, Harmison digging the ball in on a placid pitch, easily tucked away to the on-side

4.4

Harmison to Hayden, no run, short one again and Hayden goes for the pull. He misses it completely and cops one on the helmet! Hayden jarred as the ball hits him smack on the badge

4.5

Harmison to Hayden, no run, and Harmison bangs another one in! This time Hayden leaves it alone. The crowd loves it and roars in apprciation of Harmison.

4.6

Harmison to Hayden, no run, slightly fuller but well directed just outside the off stump, left alone to the keeper. End of a fine overfrom Harmison!

Australia 30/0   ML Hayden 11* (21b 2x4)
7.2

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, down the leg side again from Hoggard. Unless he takes a wicket this might well be the last over of this spell for him

7.3

Hoggard to Hayden, no run, better line and length this time, outside the off, perhaps a touch too wide to make the batsman play, though, left alone easily to the wicketkeeper

7.4

Hoggard to Hayden, 1 run, on the stumps this time and there is just a hint of late swing, Hayden plays it away to the off side with ease and saunters a single

7.6

Hoggard to Hayden, OUT, There's the peach from Hoggard. Perfectly pitched up, swinging in late, Hayden leans forward to drive and misses as the ball shatters the off stump! Hoggard strikes! Now you can bet he'll be bowling another over or two!

ML Hayden b Hoggard 12 (38m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

Australia 35/1   ML Hayden 12 (24b 2x4)
