The Ashes - 5th Test

England v Australia

England won by 197 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

87.3

Siddle to Harmison, no run, pitches it up on middle-and-leg, and Harmison gawkily whips to leg

87.4

Siddle to Harmison, 1 leg bye, down the leg side to fine leg and Harmison's down! Flat out! Terrific dive from the big man

England 310/9   SJ Harmison 0* (2b)

88.3

Hilfenhaus to Harmison, no run, defended to leg

88.4

Hilfenhaus to Harmison, no run, wide of the off stump and swinging wider

88.5

Hilfenhaus to Harmison, FOUR, soft hands! Played nicely down to third man. That'll do him good

88.6

Hilfenhaus to Harmison, no run, well defended by Harmison. A very straight and good delivery on the off stump, but he was right behind it

England 318/9   SJ Harmison 4* (6b 1x4)

89.2

Siddle to Harmison, no run, brilliant take from Haddin! Angled into Harmison, seamed away then swung prodigiously after pitching, so much in fact that Haddin had to dive in front of first slip

89.3

Siddle to Harmison, no run

89.4

Siddle to Harmison, (no ball) FOUR, shot! Oh superb shot from Harmison. Tail-end humpty - or rather, tail-end orthodoxy as he whips this elegantly through midwicket, ala Atherton. And it's a no-ball, too

89.4

Siddle to Harmison, no run, Harmison lines up another big swish - I think he's timed this really quite well actually. A big swing through the leg-side and yes, it's gone for four. Now that was tail-end humpty

89.5

Siddle to Harmison, FOUR, Harmison lines up another big swish - I think he's timed this really quite well actually. A big swing through the leg-side and yes, it's gone for four. Now that was tail-end humpty

89.6

Siddle to Harmison, no run, defended out to the off side

England 328/9   SJ Harmison 12* (12b 3x4)
