71.2

Johnson to Broad, no run, a little outside off now and Broad lets it go

71.3

81.4

Watson to Broad, no run, better line on the off stump, and Broad's right behind it

81.5

Watson to Broad, no run, Broad steps back and across, as he has done for much of his innings today - uncharacteristically nervous-looking defence. Solid, though.

81.6

Watson to Broad, FOUR, flashed and edged and wide of the slips for four! Not in control of that, by any stretch of the imagination - what a ridiculous phrase that is. Watson's fairly fuming at Broad there

82.3

North to Broad, no run, speared into Broad who digs it out

82.4

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, sharp delivery which cuts back nastily on Broad, but it's tucked to leg reasonably comfortably

84.3

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, on the back foot and he defends

84.4

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, ooh, very well bowled there. Late swing into Broad's off stump. Solidly blocked, mind you

84.5

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, swings sharply back into Broad once more but again he's defending solidly

84.6

England 303/7   SCJ Broad 25* (53b 4x4)

85.2

Siddle to Broad, 1 run, stands tall and guides to point

England 307/7   SCJ Broad 26* (54b 4x4)

86.1

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, a loosener to begin with, and only the merest hint of swing back into the left-handed Broad

86.2

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, very wide of the off stump this time

86.3

Hilfenhaus to Broad, 1 run, a little bit late on that, his feet still asleep, but he nevertheless works it to leg. Just for a single, so Anderson has three balls in which to survive

England 308/8   SCJ Broad 27* (57b 4x4)

87.1

Siddle to Broad, no run, wide of the off stump and ignored by Broad

87.2

Siddle to Broad, 1 run, clunked off the back foot, right off the toe of the bat, aerially through cover

87.5

Siddle to Broad, no run, very good line on the off stump. Broad's back and defending. Defending solidly, too

87.6

Siddle to Broad, 1 run, pulled and top-edged in the air, this'll be taken by fine-leg if he's quick enough. Is he? No! Johnson runs in, but Haddin's also zooming in on the ball which has distracted him sufficiently for him to drop it. Very difficult chance, but angry Siddle is now a man absolutely ticking. The double tea-pot it well and truly unfurled

England 311/9   SCJ Broad 29* (61b 4x4)

88.1

Hilfenhaus to Broad, 2 runs, crashed backward of square for a single - no, they're going for two. He'll have to hurry, and the throw from third man is poor

88.2

Hilfenhaus to Broad, 1 run, clunked square of the wicket

England 314/9   SCJ Broad 32* (63b 4x4)

89.1

Siddle to Broad, 1 run, on middle-and-leg, nicely whipped to mid-on and he takes the single to expose Harmison

England 319/9   SCJ Broad 33* (64b 4x4)

90.1

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, Broad stands tall and absolutely spanks the like out of it, but straight to mid-off

90.2

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, Broad attempts a huge swing across the line and is very fortunate not to be bowled. Excellent line from the ever-nagging Hilfenhaus

90.3

Hilfenhaus to Broad, FOUR, beautifully played. Much too short from Hilfenhaus and he's pulled him behind square, bisecting the converging deep midwicket and fine leg, neither of whom could reach it in time. Really well placed

90.4

Hilfenhaus to Broad, no run, a full bunger outside off - takes Broad by surprise

90.5

Hilfenhaus to Broad, OUT, got him! Much better from Hilfenhaus, pitching it up, and he goes for a huge swing and gets a thick outside edge to slip

SCJ Broad c Ponting b Hilfenhaus 37 (89m 69b 5x4 0x6) SR: 53.62

England 332/10   SCJ Broad 37 (69b 5x4)
