The Ashes - 2nd Test

England v Australia

England won by 115 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

91.6

Siddle to Anderson, no run, snorter! An absolute cracker from Siddle which flew off a length past Broad's outside edge

England 370/8   JM Anderson 0* (1b)

93.1

Siddle to Anderson, no run, short and climbs into Anderson who is nervously defending on the tips of his toes

93.2

Siddle to Anderson, no run, angled across him and beats the outside edge! Australia are all over England like a particularly violent rash

93.3

Siddle to Anderson, 1 run, clunked out to the off side - oh blimey, trouble here! Throw comes in but it's wide. That would've been curtains

England 379/9   JM Anderson 1* (4b)

94.1

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run, ooh that bends back sharply into the left-hander who's rapped on the pads

94.2

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run, again, more inswing to Anderson who, to his credit, gets his head right over the ball to defend

94.3

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run, wide of the off stump and left alone

94.4

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run

94.5

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run, nasty, horrid short ball - very, very well bowled indeed - but Anderson plays this well, jumping up and getting his hands high to fend the ball down

94.6

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, no run, an extravagant flay out to the off side

England 379/9   JM Anderson 1* (10b)

96.1

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, 3 runs, good delivery - good thinking, at least - angling this across the left-hander but Anderson's played it nicely, guiding it past point for a single

England 389/9   JM Anderson 4* (11b)

97.2

Johnson to Anderson, 1 run, short of a length and guided out to the off side. Neatly played

97.5

Johnson to Anderson, no run, fuller delivery, nicely bowled, but nicely defended too - pushed out quite crisply to the off side

97.6

Johnson to Anderson, FOUR, pressure on Johnson! Superb back-foot drive, elegantly driven past point to send a packed Lord's crowd into delirium. Nothing like a tailender boshing quick runs

England 401/9   JM Anderson 9* (14b 1x4)

98.2

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, 2 runs, nudged off his hip

98.3

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, 1 run, Anderson pushed out to the off side

England 405/9   JM Anderson 12* (16b 1x4)

99.1

Johnson to Anderson, FOUR, take that. Superb stroke, but another poor delivery from Johnson - just too full and much, much too wide. Anderson steps back, rocks back, and flangs it through extra cover

99.2

Johnson to Anderson, FOUR, Johnson tries to correct his line but it's much too straight, this time, and it's down the leg side for four more!

99.3

Johnson to Anderson, no run, short of a length and hurries into the rib-cage area of Anderson who tucks it to leg

99.4

Johnson to Anderson, no run, back of a length and again nicely defended by a steely eyed Anderson, defending on the back foot and down by his toes. Boycott will be proud

99.5

Johnson to Anderson, no run, again short, targetting his chest and Anderson is back and defending

99.6

Johnson to Anderson, FOUR, four more - and that's a very clever shot indeed. Short, wide - awful, frankly, from Johnson - and uppercut over backward point for four more

England 419/9   JM Anderson 24* (22b 4x4)

101.1

Johnson to Anderson, 1 run, steps to leg and flicks this behind square. Misfield from fine leg but they don't think about two

101.3

Johnson to Anderson, FOUR, what a shot! Anderson is playing quite brilliantly here, driving on the up and opening the face. Deep backward point hasn't a hope. Class from Anderson

101.4

Johnson to Anderson, OUT, got him this time! Got big on him and square cut it low to gully who took a fine catch

JM Anderson c Hussey b Johnson 29 (47m 25b 5x4 0x6) SR: 116.00

England 425/10   JM Anderson 29 (25b 5x4)
