  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Broad to Watson, OUT, that's out! No worries about it. Absolutely dead in front, Watson trapped in the crease and that's taking out middle-and-leg

SR Watson lbw b Broad 34 (94m 69b 7x4 0x6) SR: 49.27

Australia 73/1   SM Katich 34* (70b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 1-0-7-1

Broad to Ponting, OUT, bowled him! Broad's bowled him! Ponting goes back and chops it on, his off stump pegged back

RT Ponting b Broad 8 (20m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Australia 85/2   SM Katich 38* (79b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 3-0-15-2

Broad to Hussey, OUT, got him! Broad's got three! Hussey again not showing good judgement of his off stump as Broad cuts this back nastily and raps him in front. Gone!

MEK Hussey lbw b Broad 0 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 89/3   SM Katich 42* (85b 6x4)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-15-3

Broad to Clarke, OUT, he's got him! Broad's got four! Clarke went for a drive, feeling for it, and Trott took a very sharp chance at short extra cover, diving forward. Tremendous cricket from England!

MJ Clarke c Trott b Broad 3 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 93/4   SM Katich 43* (89b 6x4)   SCJ Broad 4.2-1-15-4

Swann to North, OUT, got him! Swann gets one to go straight on with the arm, North is a bit slow getting the bat down, and Rauf says that's lbw!

MJ North lbw b Swann 8 (28m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Australia 108/5   SM Katich 49* (103b 7x4)   GP Swann 5.3-1-15-1

Swann to Katich, OUT, Swann gets Katich! Oh, the follow-on looms now! Katich got an inside edge onto the top flap of his pad and it's bobbed up to short leg, who takes a simple catch and Rauf raises the finger

SM Katich c Cook b Swann 50 (169m 107b 7x4 0x6) SR: 46.72

Australia 109/6   BJ Haddin 0* (6b)   GP Swann 6.1-2-15-2

Broad to Haddin, OUT, gone! Another one! Broad's got five! And what a superb ball, that has cleaned up Haddin's off stump, it's full and straightening enough to beat Haddin, who was trying to whip it through leg

BJ Haddin b Broad 1 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Australia 111/7   MG Johnson 0* (6b)   SCJ Broad 8.4-1-26-5

Swann to Johnson, OUT, Swann gets his third! That's eight for the session! Swann tosses it up and gets some turn, Johnson is lured into the drive and an outside edge is well snapped up by Prior

MG Johnson c †Prior b Swann 11 (27m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 45.83

Australia 131/8   PM Siddle 9* (13b 2x4)   GP Swann 9.5-3-26-3

Swann to Clark, OUT, erm. Oh dear. We've had some shockers this summer, but that takes the biscuit and the tin. Clark pats forward, bat nowhere near the ball which takes the top of his pad, ballooning to silly point...and up goes the finger. In the umpire's defence, the bat flicked the pad, so he obviously heard something...

SR Clark c Cook b Swann 6 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 143/9   PM Siddle 15* (27b 3x4)   GP Swann 11.3-3-32-4

Flintoff to Hilfenhaus, OUT, late swing and that's cleaned him up! Didn't have much of a clue, his feet were planted and his bat came down in an arc. And that's the end of the innings

BW Hilfenhaus b Flintoff 6 (10m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Australia 160/10   PM Siddle 26* (38b 5x4)   A Flintoff 13.5-4-35-1
