  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CJL Rogers c Cook b Wood 43 149 100 7 0 43.00
33.2 85.1 mph, Rogers has showed immaculate judgement outside off. Ironically, he chases this one. Back of a length and outside off with some testing extra lift. Rogers pushes away from the body and manages an outside edge. The second grab does it for Cook at first slip. He juggles over his head before pouching it. England have finally broken the strong opening stand.. 110/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Lyth b Ali 85 204 131 11 0 64.88
45.1 53.3 mph, tossed up, Warner pushes forward - and nicks it to slip! Just enough turn for Moeen and he's got him, again Warner misses out on a hundred in England. Regulation catch for the slipper Lyth 161/2
View dismissal SPD Smith b Finn 143 387 252 17 2 56.74
121.1 82.0 mph, Smith back away, opens up his stance to thrash through point - and gets a thick bottom edge on to his stumps! Relief for England, after a full day of bowling at Smith, this time he won't take it on to a double but it has been another fine effort by the Australia captain in waiting 467/8
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Buttler b Stokes 15 42 29 1 0 51.72
54.4 82.1 mph, Faint nick and that's snaffled by Buttler. Clarke has been given out caught behind by Kumar Dharmasena. He chats with the soon-to-be captain and reviews. Ben Stokes' footing is fine. Hot spot does not pick up anything, RTS, however, picks up a spike. "You can stay with your decision Kumar," says TV umpire S Ravi. Clarke walks off to a rousing ovation. This was a back-of-a-length delivery, which moves away a bit off the seam, and lifts outside off. Clarke fiddles with it and edges it thinly. Clarke departs for 15 in the first innings of his 115th and final Test.. 186/3
View dismissal AC Voges lbw b Stokes 76 175 130 12 0 58.46
92.6 85.6 mph, pinned him, superb inswinger from Stokes! That looked very good and Dharmasena doesn't think long about it... Voges decides to review, however, perhaps more due to the prospect of an Ashes hundred on the horizon than a firm conviction of injustice. Umpire Ravi has a quick look at the replays and decides that was plumb, up goes the finger again and England have their breakthrough on the stroke of the hour 332/4
View dismissal MR Marsh c Bell b Finn 3 22 13 0 0 23.07
97.5 Finally, Finn has his 100th Test wicket. He can celebrate now. It is a legal ball. The extra bounce undid Marsh. Back of a length and climbs outside off, Marsh hangs his bat out, instead of leaving it. He outside-edges it to second slip, where Bell completes an impressive overhead catch 343/5
View dismissal PM Nevill c †Buttler b Ali 18 27 27 3 0 66.66
105.3 51.6 mph, Nevill has been caught down the leg side. Umpire Dar's finger goes up. Sharp work from Buttler. Dropped a bit short and sliding down leg, Nevill shapes for a pull and does not connect well enough. Gloves it behind 376/6
View dismissal MG Johnson b Ali 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
105.5 54.0 mph, bowled'em. Johnson gone for a duck. Tossed up, drifts in, straightens past the outside edge to tilt the middle stump back. And that is lunch on the second day. Johnson played down the wrong line and paid the penalty.. 376/7
View dismissal MA Starc lbw b Stokes 58 66 52 9 1 111.53
122.6 87.7 mph, this ducks in and strikes Starc on the back pad, only Stokes appeals and Dharmasena shakes his head. But England decide to review, probably worth a shout in the circumstances... And yes, it's right on the money, no bat involved and Hawk-Eye has it crashing in to leg stump. More reward for Stokes and Starc's intrepid innings is ended 475/9
View dismissal PM Siddle c Lyth b Finn 1 20 9 0 0 11.11
125.1 86.3 mph, Lyth flings to his right from gully and snaps up a good catch. Good length and largely holds its line around a fourth-stump line, Siddle wafts and edges it. Australia have been bowled out for 481 while Finn finishes with three wickets 481/10

View dismissal A Lyth c Starc b Siddle 19 48 42 4 0 45.23
12.2 79.3 mph, short again and Lyth plops a catch into the hands of mid-on! Oh dear... Chances are fast running out for Lyth to convince, he latched on to what was little more than a long hop but could only spoon it gently into the leg side, where both mid-on and midwicket were waiting. Success for Siddle with only the second ball of his comeback 46/2
View dismissal AN Cook* b Lyon 22 30 21 4 0 104.76
7.1 Cook is bowled. Top, top ball from Lyon. He gives this more air, gets it to drift it, grip in the pitch and turn away past the jittery defence to clip the top of off after pitching on middle and leg. And that is tea 30/1
View dismissal IR Bell b Siddle 10 67 42 1 0 23.80
23.3 85.1 mph, bowled him, clips the off bail with a corking delivery! This has been an exacting spell from Siddle, full of subtlety and skill, he found the perfect length to trouble the top of off, got the ball to hold down the line and beat Bell's defensive push - a real bail-trimmer. Siddle growls in approval and England are three down, looking ever-so-slightly wobbly 60/3
View dismissal JE Root c †Nevill b Marsh 6 59 39 1 0 15.38
24.4 78.1 mph, beaten playing back to a shortish ball, Marsh and the keeper go up - they're convinced but Dharmasena isn't. Clarke, who also didn't react, decides to go with his players and calls for a review. This is going to be interesting, there's no visible edge but seems to be a sound; Hot Spot shows nothing, but there is a feather on Snicko. Is that conclusive evidence? Umpire Ravi is taking his time... The bat was away from the body, so there's nothing else the sound can be from, so after several replays Ravi eventually decides that the decision can be overturned and Root is out 64/4
View dismissal JM Bairstow c Lyon b Johnson 13 26 15 1 0 86.66
28.3 84.1 mph, And has the bouncer done the trick? Yes, Johnson has some part of his heel behind the crease. This one lifts outside off. Bairstow hunts for a pull and flaps it over square leg. Lyon runs across to his left from deep backward square and swallows it. England stumble further to 83 for 5 83/5
View dismissal BA Stokes c †Nevill b Marsh 15 42 25 2 0 60.00
34.1 80.5 mph, England seven down. The procession continues. Marsh bangs it outside off, Stokes loads up for a pull but only skews it into the air off a top edge. Nevill back-tracks and takes it with total comfort 92/7
View dismissal JC Buttler b Lyon 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
29.2 48.1 mph, Buttler has been sent packing now. The umpires check for a possible no-ball. Lyon's footing is fine. Sharp offbreak, Buttler seeks to drive after pressing forward but the ball rips through the bat-pad gap to hit middle and leg. Three wickets in six overs for Australia. Lyon rides his car through the gate and celebrates..The leg stump is tilted back. 84/6
View dismissal MM Ali c †Nevill b Johnson 30 85 61 6 0 49.18
48.4 82.2 mph, length outside off, Moeen pushes at it and nicks to the keeper! Johnson has cleaned up, two in two balls and Moeen's resistance is also ended 149/10
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Voges b Marsh 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
34.5 84.4 mph, Broad has nicked off now. Marsh is mobbed by his team-mates. Back of a length and angling away outside off, target locked, edge found, again. Voges dives across to his left from first slip and completes a smart catch 92/8
View dismissal MA Wood c Starc b Johnson 24 60 41 6 0 58.53
48.3 84.6 mph, another bumper, Wood takes on the hook... and spoons it to midwicket! That's his merry hit over, done for pace and a top edge looped gently towards the edge of the square. Australia have the ninth wicket and England are still, er, 133 shy of the follow on 149/9

76.6 50.4 mph, Cook has to wait for his first home Ashes hundred. Loopy legbreak, spins in. Cook bends forward and only manages an inside edge to short leg. Australia's captain-in-waiting dismisses the England captain in his first over 199/6

First success for Lyon, bowling over the wicket to the right-hander 140/4
View dismissal BA Stokes c Clarke b Lyon 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
51.6 53.5 mph, wider, a tempter, turns out of the rough... and taken at slip! Two in the over for Lyon, hastening England towards defeat, he removes Stokes for a duck, trying to drive one that left him, clear deviation off the edge and safely pouched by the captain 140/5

86.2 81.1 mph, pitched up and chipped to the left of mid-off... who takes a low diving catch, Buttler has tossed it away! He slumps over his bat as he realises, excellent take from Starc, tumbling forwards and Marsh has another wicket, he's been very effective here. Two to go 223/8

Clarke immediately reviews, think this is going to be close, unless he hit it.
