View dismissal PJ Hughes c Denly b Harmison 7 32 29 0 0 24.13
7.3 Hughes has been tested with a fair few short ones and has looked anything but the run machine he was at Middlesex … finally Harmison gets him, banging one in, Hughes doesn't get over it, getting in a complete tangle, and gloves the ball to gully. Harmison , touching 90mph consistently, looks like the 2005 version … 19/1

10.2 a roar from the crowd as Ponting aims a loose swish at a short wide ball, one he could easily have left, and a thick edge is easily held by Solanki at first slip. "A stinky dismissal" laments an Australian colleague. 24/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Harmison 150 380 234 19 0 64.10

46.1 he's played on! North stays in his crease before moving half forward, he plays hesitantly as if he's thinking about leaving it but prods at the ball in the end, it takes the inside edge on to his stumps 186/5
