Siddle to Strauss, 1 run, pulled around square

9.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, a reasonable line outside off and left alone

9.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, better carry through to Haddin, reaching him at waist height. A touch too wide

9.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, squared up a touch here, squeezing it out to the off side. Played late, though

9.5

Siddle to Cook, no run, wide enough to be left alone

9.6

England 41/0   PM Siddle 1-0-2-0
12.1

Siddle to Strauss, no run, wide of the off stump and left alone

12.2

Siddle to Strauss, no run, good and full length from Siddle, and this cuts away from the left-hander. Well left

12.3

Siddle to Strauss, no run, good length again. Strauss pushes forward solidly, defending to gully

12.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, driven confidently but mid-off pulls off a good save to his right

12.5

Siddle to Strauss, no run, Strauss unleashes the most orthodox of off-drives, banging it straight to mid-off

12.6

Siddle to Strauss, FOUR, there we go. The third attempt is placed better and rockets to the extra-cover boundary for four. Shot!

England 50/0   PM Siddle 2-0-6-0
14.1

Siddle to Cook, no run, comfortably wide of the off stump and left alone

14.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, onto the front foot, he defends solidly

14.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, that flies through to Haddin outside off. Rare good carry

14.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, left alone outside off

14.5

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, four more! He mistimed this pull - it was as though he was batting with a plank of plywood, but no one's out there at deep square leg and everything's going England's way

14.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, left alone outside off

England 57/0   PM Siddle 3-0-10-0
19.1

Siddle to Strauss, no run, a bit too wide to begin with, Strauss lets it go

19.2

Siddle to Strauss, no run, pushed across outside off and left alone

19.2

Siddle to Strauss, no run, pushed across outside off and left alone

19.3

Siddle to Strauss, no run, hmm, that's a tempting one, he's angled it across and there was a bit of extra swing there, or perhaps it's the slope, but Strauss tries to drive and misses

19.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, similar ball but this time Strauss leaves

19.5

Siddle to Strauss, 1 run, on the pads, clipped away to square leg

19.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, left alone outside off

England 74/0   PM Siddle 4-0-11-0
21.1

Siddle to Cook, no run, no shot offered outside off

21.2

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, guided away behind point nicely and that brings up a really impressive half-century from Cook

21.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, tempts him a bit here with a ball that moves away just outside off, beats the outside edge

21.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, a bit wider of off, Cook doesn't have to play

21.5

Siddle to Cook, 4 byes, great ball! Siddle has managed to get this one to straighten up the hill and Cook leaves, it doesn't miss off stump by much, and Haddin was just as surprised as Cook, and didn't glove it

21.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, an lbw shout this time, similar ball and Cook leaves, it clips his pad but possibly too high and maybe not straightening quite enough

England 88/0   PM Siddle 5-0-15-0
23.1

Siddle to Strauss, 2 byes, oops, Siddle gets that one a bit wrong, too wide outside off and it's swung after passing the batsman, Haddin did well to get a glove on that and deflect it towards third man to stop a boundary

23.2

Siddle to Strauss, 1 no ball, driven to mid-off

23.2

Siddle to Strauss, 2 runs, better line, on off stump, but Strauss clips it away confidently through mid-on

23.3

Siddle to Strauss, 4 byes, Brad Haddin is not happy with Billy Doctrove's call here! That should've been wides, a short ball down leg, swings away further and Haddin had as much chance of reaching that as he has of bowling the next over

23.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, driven to point but can't beat the field

23.5

Siddle to Strauss, 1 run, short, pulled away nicely behind square and the man at fine-leg collects

23.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, guided away towards point

England 99/0   PM Siddle 6-0-19-0
25.1

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, well played, it's shortish but only really stomach height and Cook pulls it away nicely through midwicket

25.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, probing outside off and that's left alone

25.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, better length, trying to entice a drive, but it's left alone outside off

25.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, Cook prods at this one but the angle in towards him beats the bat

25.5

Siddle to Cook, 3 runs, on the pads, comfortably clipped away to deep square leg

25.6

Siddle to Strauss, no run, defended outside off, no real movement for Siddle there

England 108/0   PM Siddle 7-0-26-0
27.1

Siddle to Cook, no run, much better from Siddle, just outside off, the right length, Cook hangs the bat out and it beats the edge

27.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, fuller length, driven back to the bowler

27.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, a big grunt from Siddle, but no threat from that ball as it's pushed away with ease towards cover

27.4

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, good shot, Cook gets one on a drivable length and so he does just that, leaning into it and guiding it through cover for a boundary

27.5

Siddle to Cook, no run, similar shot from Cook but this one doesn't beat the man at cover

27.6

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, a bit of swing in but it ends up on the pads, it's clipped away ever so easily through square leg

39.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, driven square of the wicket

England 155/0   PM Siddle 9-0-35-0

43.2

Siddle to Strauss, no run, too wide of the off stump and left alone

43.3

Siddle to Strauss, FOUR, awful delivery I'm afraid. Way, way too short and wide. Strauss capitalises, thumping him in front of square for four

43.4

Siddle to Strauss, (no ball) FOUR, four more. And it's a no-ball. Siddle tries to correct his line but it's down the leg side and flicked for another boundary

43.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, that flies towards first slip this time, and Haddin can't quite get hold of it

43.5

63.2

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, driven to mid-on

63.3

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, left alone outside off

63.4

Siddle to Pietersen, FOUR, oh take that. Pietersen at his best - a front-foot cover-driven slap for four. Bosh

63.5

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, slightly tighter line and a better length

63.6

Siddle to Pietersen, FOUR, driven hard back to Siddle, through his hands, through his legs for four. That was a real toe-crusher - from Pietersen, not Siddle - and can barely be described a chance, but nevertheless I'm still going to have to say it: dropped

England 265/2   PM Siddle 12-0-55-0
65.1

Siddle to Pietersen, OUT, got him! Terrific ball that moved away just a touch from Pietersen, drawn forward into a drive, and it took a thin outside edge to a diving Haddin behind the stumps

67.2

Siddle to Strauss, no run, short of a good length, Strauss defends on the back foot with the straightest of bats

67.3

Siddle to Strauss, FOUR, slashed and dropped by the diving gully - another catch goes down, this one by Mike Hussey. Loose shot by Strauss though he absolutely smashed it, and those are the catches Australia really need to take

67.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, full toss - attempted yorker but didn't quite come out right. He's bowling sharply, here, Siddle - all above 90mph

67.5

Siddle to Strauss, no run, ooh good ball - terrific delivery cutting back into Strauss who leaves it alone

67.6

Siddle to Strauss, no run, on the back foot, defending

England 274/3   PM Siddle 14-1-59-1

71.3

Siddle to Strauss, 1 run, flicked to leg

71.4

Siddle to Collingwood, 3 runs, Australia's V8 engine lets out a frustrated grunt at drifting onto Collingwood's legs, somewhere they really must avoid. Bread, butter and a whole load of similar things - flicked through the leg side

71.5

Siddle to Strauss, 1 run, pushed off the back foot for another single. Nice play by England here, ticking over

England 295/3   PM Siddle 17-1-66-1

91.2

Siddle to Broad, no run, angles across him but it's a bit too wide

91.3

Siddle to Broad, 1 no ball, nicely stroked out to mid-off - full enough to do so

91.3

Siddle to Broad, 1 run, on the leg stump, pushed out to the off side for a scampered quick single, his first of the morning

91.4

Siddle to Swann, no run, predictably short, though a little stiff and slow in pace

91.5

Siddle to Swann, OUT, edged to Ponting at second slip! Brilliant from Siddle, pitching it short and angling it up the hill and at chest height to Swann who angles it straight to slip

GP Swann c Ponting b Siddle 4 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

91.6

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
