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

This game's moving on at apace. England, despite losing three wickets, have put on 51 in the last ten overs alone; 419 in 101 overs overall. That's good going. Johnson and Ponting in another massive conference, Siddle's also chipping in. Come on, get on with it.


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


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


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

Highest 10th wicket stand for England v Australia at Lord's

Around the wicket this time


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

End of innings Good knock from Anderson there, and that's England's innings. They were looking for 450+ and though they'll be disappointed, 425 is still a decent score. More importantly, the ball is moving considerably this morning and their bowlers - Onions and Anderson in particular - have an opportunity to do the same to Australia's top-order. Brydon Coverdale will guide you through the opening salvoes in about ten minutes. In the meantime, have a read of this, the future of USA cricket.
