View dismissal SR Watson c Morgan b Swann 41 65 54 5 1 75.92
16.3 49.5 mph, gone! Would you believe it, Watson has picked out deep midwicket with absolute precision as he went for a slog sweep. Eoin Morgan barely had to take step and Watson can barely drag himself away...he's been in good form but hasn't converted 73/2
View dismissal TD Paine c Morgan b Bresnan 8 36 22 1 0 36.36
9.1 84.5 mph, all over for Paine! He's struggled today and it was a tame end. He tried to work it into the leg side, got a leading edge and looped very gently to Morgan at cover. Bresnan has his first wicket in the series! 33/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Strauss b Anderson 92 130 93 10 0 98.92
42.1 87.5 mph, well, how about that. Powerplay has gone wrong straight away! Ponting aimed a drive over cover but couldn't quite time it and instead chipped it firmly to Strauss at extra cover who leapt and took the chance. 228/3
MJ Clarke not out 99 144 106 7 0 93.39
View dismissal CL White c Anderson b Broad 17 24 16 1 0 106.25
47.2 85.8 mph, gone this time! White couldn't quite going and here he tried to smash a short ball out the ground, couldn't get much of it and Anderson took an easy catch on the square leg boundary 263/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Anderson/Strauss) 1 1 1 0 0 100.00
48.2 Anderson to Clarke, well, suicidal running from Hussey. Clarke murdered a drive straight to Strauss at extra cover, Hussey ran for a single which was never these, Strauss calmly threw back to Anderson, who took the bails off and Hussey had no chance of getting back in time 266/5
SPD Smith not out 18 7 8 4 0 225.00

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Paine b Tait 37 61 45 5 0 82.22
13.2 89.1 mph, edged and gone! Well, that curved away from Strauss very late to take the edge of his bat, and Paine takes a regulation catch behind. Tait strikes, and Australia continue to chip away at England as they chase a win that could at least give them some pride 61/3
View dismissal C Kieswetter b Harris 12 36 23 1 0 52.17
8.4 91.4 mph, clatter! Harris sent one down much fuller and Kieswetter went for the drive, leaving an enormous gap between bat and pad. There was a touch of wobble on the ball, and some seam movement in after pitching to squirt through the gap and smash into the top of off stump! Harris, who is obviously fired up, gives him a bit of a send-off 37/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Harris 8 7 6 2 0 133.33
10.3 91.1 mph, Harris strikes again! Pietersen went right across to the offside and aimed an extravagant flick over the leg-side but is struck on the back pad. Huge appeal from Australia, and the umpire agrees! Pietersen isn't happy, giving a long glance at the umpire as he trudges off, but that was stone dead, hitting middle and leg halfway up 53/2
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Smith 15 38 19 1 0 78.94
19.2 54.7 mph, great response from Smith and Collingwood has gone! Top stuff from Smith, but Collingwood looks unlucky here, he pushed forward to defend and the ball rapped him on the front pad, looked outside the line though 90/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †Paine b Harris 47 56 56 1 3 83.92
28.2 86.6 mph, the bowling change works and Morgan has gone! That could well be it! Harris has made the difference today, and this was full and outside off stump, inviting the flashing drive, but Morgan could only get a faint outside edge through to Paine. 140/5
View dismissal MH Yardy c White b Bollinger 57 88 63 5 0 90.47
41.4 85.3 mph, Yardy gone this time! Short and Yardy pulls without much timing straight to mid on 208/9
View dismissal LJ Wright b Smith 2 9 9 0 0 22.22
31.4 54.0 mph, bowled round his legs! Smith has been getting really nice drift, and this has just curved slightly down the leg side and then spun back across to strike the middle and leg stumps. Wright tried to clip to leg but the drift took the ball away from the bat, and some spin did the rest! Another one down for England 151/6
View dismissal TT Bresnan c Watson b Harris 22 34 26 1 0 84.61
40.2 86.1 mph, Harris strikes again, what a game he's having! Bresnan attempted to clear the one man at deep long on, curious shot-selection really, and he ended up skiing it straight to Watson on the boundary 199/7
View dismissal GP Swann c †Paine b Bollinger 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
41.2 85.0 mph, and another one goes! Bollinger is too sharp for Swann! Bounced up into the rib area, Swann tried to fend it away and could only glove it behind to Paine 207/8
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Hussey b Harris 4 7 5 1 0 80.00
42.4 87.1 mph, That's it! Harris has five and Australia break their duck! Broad chips it tamely to cover where Hussey takes the catch. 212/10
