Johnson to Flintoff, FOUR, Flintoff gets away with a boundary, jams down on a fullish, wide-ish ball and gets it through gully

67.3

Johnson to Flintoff, no run, that's a nasty bouncer! Fast and deadly accurate, Flintoff just couldn't get out of the way and he's taken it on the left shoulder, a couple of inches to the left and it would have crunched his helmet

67.4

Johnson to Flintoff, no run, safer length now and Flintoff can defend

67.5

Johnson to Flintoff, 1 no ball, 'No!' shouts Asad Rauf. Presumably there was a 'ball' intended as well. Anyway, Flintoff prods it away

69.1

Johnson to Flintoff, no run, bouncer and Flintoff fends, oh, he wasn't totally in control but got it down short of bat-pad

69.2

Johnson to Flintoff, no run, bouncer down leg and Flintoff tamely tries for a hook and gets nothing on it

69.3

Johnson to Flintoff, no run, better length, Flintoff defends
