View dismissal IR Bell c Smith b Johnson 27 20 17 4 1 158.82
4.3 87.5 mph, down the track, another lofted flog, and this time Smith in the covers does the business. The end of a lively innings from Bell. He's got England up and running 49/2
View dismissal SM Davies c White b Lee 4 4 2 1 0 200.00
1.2 88.4 mph, ah ... maybe he is a bit rusty after all. A similar delivery, but this one is lifted into the hands of short cover. Lee starts his lawnmower, and Australia have their breakthrough! 16/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Hussey b O'Keefe 25 20 11 3 1 227.27
5.3 47.7 mph, three-card trick! Pietersen thought he was in the zone, played one stroke too many, and David Hussey at mid-off timed his leap to perfection to intercept 63/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood* c †Paine b Hussey 16 29 20 2 0 80.00
11.5 58.2 mph, reverse-sweep, and that's due reward for a fine over. A big top-edge from Collingwood, and Paine walks round to gather 99/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Hussey b Watson 43 40 33 5 1 130.30
15.2 74.9 mph, well, well, that's a timely breakthrough! The rate is already a run a ball, but England's finisher falls to a tame drive to short cover ... 130/6
View dismissal LJ Wright lbw b Tait 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
12.4 88.8 mph, that was exceptionally plumb! For a moment it looked as though Wright had got a tickle of bat on a leg-glance, but nope, it was pad all the way 104/5
View dismissal TT Bresnan c Lee b Watson 11 21 11 1 0 100.00
17.3 76.8 mph, outside off, swished over the covers, but there's not enough bat on that, and Bresnan falls! Now this will test the mettle of England's tail 141/8
View dismissal MH Yardy c †Paine b Watson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
15.3 83.2 mph, blimey! Two in two! A surprise bouncer to Yardy, he tried not to play it but his bat grazed the ball periscope style as he swayed out of line! 130/7
CR Woakes not out 19 23 15 1 1 126.66
View dismissal GP Swann b Watson 6 9 5 0 0 120.00
19.1 83.2 mph, that's the way to lose it! Swann went for glory, with a hoist through the leg-side, but he's bowled middle stump! 154/9
