View dismissal DA Warner c Pietersen b Yardy 30 41 26 3 0 115.38
9.2 57.4 mph, tame end for Warner as he plays an unbalanced sliced loft down the ground, which Pietersen intercepts on the boundary's edge. Vital strike again from England, who are battling back now 72/3
View dismissal SR Watson c Morgan b Woakes 17 18 10 0 2 170.00
4.1 80.5 mph, crucial breakthrough. Full length again from Woakes, a flick across the line from Watson, but Morgan at deep square leg is in place to take the catch 37/1
View dismissal TD Paine c Collingwood b Swann 21 12 12 2 1 175.00
6.5 56.1 mph, a swipe across the line, a massive steepler, Collingwood calls for it at short midwicket, steadies himself, fumbles the initial take, but clutches onto the rebound! 63/2
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Woakes b Yardy 8 18 16 0 0 50.00
11.5 58.1 mph, short this time, but it's a rare bad ball that is too eagerly accepted by Hussey. A greedy slap to deep midwicket, where Woakes makes no mistake! 80/5
View dismissal CL White* lbw b Swann 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
10.2 55.3 mph, cracking delivery, genuine spin as White, the Victorian, is nailed on the back foot. Paul Reiffel, the umpire - another Victorian - sticks up the finger! 74/4

View dismissal SPD Smith c Collingwood b Shahzad 13 22 18 0 0 72.22
18.4 61.6 mph, another slower ball, a cutter this time, another smash, and short cover crouches to intercept. 131/6
View dismissal SNJ O'Keefe b Bresnan 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
19.1 70.0 mph, what on earth happened there? Ah, O'Keefe was bowled, that's what. An attempted Dilscoop, but he just ends up looking like a Dil, as his leg bail is removed by a length ball 138/7

View dismissal IR Bell b Johnson 39 34 30 3 0 130.00
7.2 87.2 mph, Johnson strikes! Lands a straight ball, touch slower too, Bell was aiming an almighty thwack over cow corner but ended up dragging into his stumps 60/1
View dismissal SM Davies c Warner b Watson 29 58 26 2 0 111.53
13.1 86.2 mph, game on now! Davies gone this time, his final mistimed shot of the innings. Hanging back and driving to try and clear mid-off but Warner dives forward to take the chance 88/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen c White b Johnson 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
7.5 81.7 mph, Cheers and boos ring loud as Pietersen falls! Johnson dished up a full drive-me ball that Pietersen climbed into, only to pick out White at cover who held an excellent low catch 62/2
View dismissal PD Collingwood* c Warner b Watson 6 8 10 0 0 60.00
9.6 84.7 mph, Collingwood's difficult run continues. Watson aimed full and Collingwood tried to clear mid-off with a drive. The timing is not there though and it goes gently to mid-off who jumps to take the chance above his head 74/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Finch b Johnson 14 28 21 1 0 66.66
17.2 76.6 mph, that's the match! Morgan has gone! Got a leg-stump half-volley and tried to heave it over deep midwicket, really struck it well but the MCG is a big ground and he couldn't clear the fielder 113/6
