Siddle to Cook, OUT, well bowled and CAUGHT! Angled across Cook who pushed at it meekly, edging it low to Ponting's right at second slip

AN Cook c Ponting b Siddle 10 (19m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

England 12/1   AJ Strauss 2* (21b)   PM Siddle 2.3-1-6-1

Hilfenhaus to Strauss, OUT, got him! A horrid little nibble outside off - absolutely no need for Strauss to fiddle at that one, and it carried through low to Haddin

AJ Strauss c †Haddin b Hilfenhaus 55 (128m 101b 11x4 0x6) SR: 54.45

England 114/2   IR Bell 41* (62b 7x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 9.1-2-32-1

Siddle to Collingwood, OUT, and this time Collingwood does go for the drive and he's caught at gully! Full and wide, Collingwood gets it off a thick edge and Hussey takes the catch right in front of his face

PD Collingwood c Hussey b Siddle 24 (89m 65b 3x4 0x6) SR: 36.92

England 176/3   IR Bell 71* (120b 10x4)   PM Siddle 10.5-2-47-2

Siddle to Bell, OUT, bowled him, inside edge - he's out! That's cleaned him up! Bell came forward with only a tentative little push, his bat coming down in an arc and it took a thick inside edge to clatter his stumps

IR Bell b Siddle 72 (222m 137b 10x4 0x6) SR: 52.55

England 181/4   IJL Trott 4* (19b)   PM Siddle 13.5-4-48-3

Johnson to Prior, OUT, the slower ball and Prior prods it tamely to point who takes a good, leaping catch - terrific bowling from Johnson

MJ Prior c Watson b Johnson 18 (57m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

England 229/5   IJL Trott 30* (56b 4x4)   MG Johnson 11.3-0-55-1

Johnson to Flintoff, OUT, gone! There won't be a first-innings fairytale from Freddie, flashes at a wide one and gets an edge through to Haddin

A Flintoff c †Haddin b Johnson 7 (21m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

England 247/6   IJL Trott 33* (65b 4x4)   MG Johnson 13.4-0-63-2

North to Trott, OUT, that is magnificent work from Katich! Truly incredible stuff at short leg! Trott uses his feet and clips to leg, Katich at short leg makes a sharp save and quickly gets a full-blooded throw at the stumps, Trott is still in the follow through and has to turn quickly, the direct hit has him well short

IJL Trott run out 41 (125m 81b 5x4 0x6) SR: 50.61

England 268/7   SCJ Broad 9* (15b 1x4)   MJ North 9.2-1-28-0

Siddle to Swann, OUT, got him! What a way for Australia to end the day, as Swann taps forward meekly and edges a very fine delivery behind

GP Swann c †Haddin b Siddle 18 (43m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

England 307/8   SCJ Broad 26* (54b 4x4)   PM Siddle 18.3-6-63-4

Hilfenhaus to Anderson, OUT, Anderson's out! Swinging back late, he was late on it and couldn't get his bat down in time, and Anderson's got his first duck in Test cricket!

JM Anderson lbw b Hilfenhaus 0 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 308/9   SCJ Broad 27* (57b 4x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 20-5-60-2

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   SJ Harmison 12* (12b 3x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 21.5-5-71-3
