England v Australia

England won by 115 runs

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


Johnson to Cook, OUT, oh dear! Cook misses his century and Johnson, of all people gets the breakthrough! It's a straight ball that keeps a touch low and strikes Cook in line, Billy Doctrove gives him lbw

AN Cook lbw b Johnson 95 (190m 147b 18x4 0x6) SR: 64.62

England 196/1   AJ Strauss 82* (144b 12x4)   MG Johnson 9.5-0-67-1


Hilfenhaus to Bopara, OUT, he's got him! That's a great ball, straightening instead of swinging, and Bopara is struck below the knee roll dead in front.

RS Bopara lbw b Hilfenhaus 18 (20m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 94.73

England 222/2   AJ Strauss 90* (162b 14x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 16-9-38-1


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

KP Pietersen c †Haddin b Siddle 32 (38m 42b 4x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

England 267/3   AJ Strauss 102* (188b 15x4)   PM Siddle 12.1-0-55-1


Clarke to Collingwood, OUT, got him! Strauss is fuming with Collingwood here, as he skips down the pitch and miscues it - a horrible welly - straight to mid-on

PD Collingwood c Siddle b Clarke 16 (43m 36b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

England 302/4   AJ Strauss 119* (220b 16x4)   MJ Clarke 2.3-0-7-1


Johnson to Prior, OUT, what a cracker! Johnson has got one to swing back in to the right-hander Prior and it's through the gate, takes off stump. Australia are well and truly back in this!

MJ Prior b Johnson 8 (13m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

England 317/5   AJ Strauss 126* (228b 17x4)   MG Johnson 13.3-0-88-2


Hilfenhaus to Flintoff, OUT, gone! The old ball works out for Hilfenhaus. A great outswinger takes the edge of Flintoff's bat and Ponting and second slip snaffles the opportunity

A Flintoff c Ponting b Hilfenhaus 4 (16m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 333/6   AJ Strauss 137* (237b 19x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 21.3-10-61-2


Hilfenhaus to Strauss, OUT, GOT HIM! Strauss leaves one which bends back - a disastrous leave from the England captain and his off stump is pegged back. What a start for Australia!

AJ Strauss b Hilfenhaus 161 (370m 268b 22x4 0x6) SR: 60.07

England 364/7   SCJ Broad 7* (16b)   BW Hilfenhaus 25.2-10-77-3


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

England 370/8   SCJ Broad 8* (20b)   PM Siddle 17.5-1-68-2


Hilfenhaus to Broad, OUT, bowled him! Three in fifteen minutes for Australia as Broad again attempts a loose drive outside off and drags it on

SCJ Broad b Hilfenhaus 16 (50m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.53

England 378/9   JM Anderson 0* (1b)   BW Hilfenhaus 27-10-89-4


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   G Onions 17* (29b 2x4)   MG Johnson 21.4-2-132-3
