The Ashes - 2nd Test

England v Australia

England won by 115 runs

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

93.4

Siddle to Onions, no run, a short stray down the leg side - superb snaffle by Haddin diving and leaping to his left

93.5

Siddle to Onions, no run, short, edged - or angled - to third slip

93.6

Siddle to Onions, no run, shuffles back and defends awkwardly, but effectively

England 379/9   G Onions 0* (3b)

95.1

Siddle to Onions, no run, sharp, shortish delivery to Onions who, on the back foot, defends it nervously, getting a thick inside edge to his pads

95.2

Siddle to Onions, no run, shorter delivery that he ducks beneath

95.3

Siddle to Onions, 2 runs, Onions squeezes it past point for a single

95.4

Siddle to Onions, 1 no ball, well he might be ill, but Siddle's bowled a beauty here that crashes into Onions' helmet

95.4

Siddle to Onions, FOUR, bosh! Upper cut over gully and point for four. Super smash, that

95.5

Siddle to Onions, no run, left alone outside off

95.6

Siddle to Onions, no run, a little too short and left alone

England 386/9   G Onions 6* (10b 1x4)

96.2

Hilfenhaus to Onions, FOUR, bosh! Great stroke from Onions, slapping this past point off the back foot - almost an orthodox square cut, save for the fact he's a tail-ender. Still - an encouraging and crowd-cheering blow

96.3

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, short, wide and pushed out to the off side

96.4

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, ah, well bowled - almost too much movement for Hilfenhaus here, as the ball bent away markedly on the right-hander who, with tail-end jollity, tried to fling it over the slips and missed

96.5

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, so close! Terrific line from Hilfenhaus - the pick of Australia's bowlers in the series thus far, comfortably - and Onions again rather cluelessly flapped and missed

96.6

Hilfenhaus to Onions, 1 run, full enough to drive, so he does drive and gets a single out to McDonald at deep extra cover

England 394/9   G Onions 11* (15b 2x4)

97.1

Johnson to Onions, 1 run, little nudge to midwicket and they steal a single. Johnson's sick as a parrot - can't believe they stole a single

97.3

Johnson to Onions, no run, down the leg side

97.4

Johnson to Onions, 1 run, guided out to the off side

England 397/9   G Onions 13* (18b 2x4)

98.1

Hilfenhaus to Onions, 1 run, Onions! He's gone for a highly ambitious Viv Richards-esque pull on the front foot, but finds mid-on - who flings in a throw but it's wide! More runs for England

98.4

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, ooh, full and swinging away from Onions who drives and misses

98.5

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, shorter delivery and Onions is showing a propensity for the pull - immense relish (sorry) for pulling Hilfenhaus with one-legged jollity

98.6

Hilfenhaus to Onions, 2 runs, lifts this over extra cover! Onions on fire here (sorry)

England 407/9   G Onions 16* (22b 2x4)

100.1

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, defended out to cover, defended very solidly

100.2

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, beaten outside off - moved away just enough to beat the shaky technique of Onions

100.3

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, on that's unfairly close, it really is! An inch, no more, from taking Onions' outside edge

100.4

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, these are too good for Onions. He plays and misses to another outswinger

100.5

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, fuller and Onions gets in line, defending it solidly this time

100.6

Hilfenhaus to Onions, no run, outside off, he shuffles back to defend

England 419/9   G Onions 16* (28b 2x4)

101.2

Johnson to Onions, 1 run, slashed hard - catch that! But no, it flies short of third man

England 421/9   G Onions 17* (29b 2x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
