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

5.1

Hoggard to Langer, no run, full and on the off, that's Hoggard's length and line, quite different from Harmison who is more pacy and back of a length, and Langer watchfully defends

Hoggard to Langer, no run, now it's down the leg side, not the best control from Hoggard, left well alone

5.3

Hoggard to Langer, no run, just short of a length this time, still a bit of swing in to the left-handed Langer. Defended carefully back down the pitch.

7.1

Hoggard to Langer, 1 run, just short of a length and outside the off, Langer pushed the ball towards cover and runs, Pietersen sprints in and has a shy, if that had hit Langer was gone for all the world! Risky single that

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

7.5

Hoggard to Langer, 3 runs, another poor delivery down the leg side, Langer tickles it away to fine-leg where Harmison is forced to dive to save the boundary

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!
