View dismissal SR Watson c †Kieswetter b Wright 57 94 59 8 0 96.61
21.3 80.2 mph, gone! The short ball works again! Watson had played so well until this shot - he went for an ungainly front-foot pull when he should have been back, the top edge rockets straight up, Kieswetter calls for it and takes a good, sliding catch. Australia pegged back once again, and after such a good start they're looking decidedly vulnerable now 94/4
View dismissal TD Paine c †Kieswetter b Broad 16 40 29 3 0 55.17
10.3 90.3 mph, gone! That's a strangle down the leg side as Paine gets an edge trying to work the ball away and a simple catch to Kieswetter to give Broad his 100th ODI wicket...a timely breakthrough for England, just as Broad managed two days ago 51/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Kieswetter b Broad 13 17 21 1 0 61.90
14.4 87.3 mph, gone! Broad strikes again and it's the big wicket of Ponting. Back of a length from Broad and the Australia captain pushed forward outside off, getting a thick edge which carries at chest height to Kieswetter 67/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Swann b Broad 1 11 7 0 0 14.28
16.6 88.1 mph, gone! The change works, another short ball from Broad, Clarke was up on his toes but couldn't control it, the ball balloons off the glove straight to Swann! He was put in an awkward position and the bottom hand came off the bat, easy catch to short leg 77/3
CL White not out 86 135 98 7 2 87.75
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Anderson 14 25 27 1 0 51.85
29.1 84.8 mph, gone! Full and Anderson finds a hint of swing back in to the left-hander to beat an airy flick to leg and clatter into the stumps! Was that swing? He sent down a cross-seam delivery but the ball definitely jagged in to Hussey after pitching. Either way, he's gone and Australia are tottering now... 118/5
View dismissal SPD Smith c Collingwood b Broad 41 63 53 3 0 77.35
45.5 88.8 mph, gone this time! Well, it was an energetic innings from Smith, but he's played too early at this one as he tried to pick the ball up over the leg side. The ball took the leading edge and looped up quite high but not very far, and Collingwood at cover takes an easy catch 202/6
View dismissal JR Hopes run out (Bresnan) 8 20 7 1 0 114.28
49.5 from Bresnan, full, straight Hopes hammers it back to the bowler and they go for the run though the ball went straight back to Bresnan and he held it cleanly. Hopes is run out, really he sacrificed himself to get White on strike for the last delivery 238/7

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c & b Hauritz 51 79 56 3 2 91.07
19.3 57.2 mph, gone! Strauss shimmies down the track, not quite getting to the pitch but trying to send the ball to long on. Instead, he pops the simplest of caught-and-bowled chances back to Hauritz, who gratefully accepts. Australia are cock-a-hoop, they need to keep chipping away at England! 109/3
View dismissal C Kieswetter c †Paine b Bollinger 8 10 7 2 0 114.28
2.2 88.0 mph, gone! Bollinger strikes as Kieswetter comes down the pitch and gets a clunky bottom edge through to Paine, the ball barely carries but the keeper makes the take 23/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Ponting b Smith 33 50 38 4 0 86.84
14.6 54.4 mph, what a catch! Pietersen came down the track and tried to hammer Smith away to midwicket again, but in the air this time. Ponting was in position close at midwicket but that looked to have cleared him ... until he leapt to pluck it out of the air one-handed. I think he even surprised himself with that one. Rolling back the years, Punter! 91/2
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Bollinger 48 83 65 2 2 73.84
36.2 85.3 mph, gone! Just when I was saying that the batsmen had settled in and Australia were without a strike bowler, Bollinger charges in and hits the stumps! The ball was outside off and Collingwood went for a leaden-footed pushed to the off side, little inside edge and into the stumps. Still, he's probably done enough to close down the game 192/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †Paine b Bollinger 52 80 64 3 0 81.25
40.2 85.9 mph, gone! Test match bowling does for Eoin Morgan, as Bollinger spears one down back of a length just around off stump. The ball rose quite sharply off a length, took the edge near the shoulder of the bat, and went through to Paine. Great piece of bowling, do Australia have a sniff of an unlikely series-levelling win now? 211/6
View dismissal LJ Wright b Hopes 10 11 14 2 0 71.42
39.4 79.1 mph, gone this time! Poor shot selection there, he had done the hard work with the two boundaries and was just looking to do too much with this ball. It was on a length and straight, coming in off the seam, and he tried to run it to third man though the ball was practically angling in to the hip. Inside edge was the result, and the ball ricochets onto the stumps 211/5
