View dismissal CJL Rogers c †Prior b Swann 72 199 167 11 0 43.11
52.5 54.8 mph, another wicket! Rogers is gone! Two in two overs after nothing seemed to be happening for them, Swann gets one to turn a bit more from short of a length, Rogers dabs at it as if trying to push to cover and his edge is taken by Prior - Rogers was walking, didn't even wait for the umpire to give him out. Well, what a huge couple of overs for England 155/3
View dismissal DA Warner c Carberry b Broad 29 36 32 4 0 90.62
7.6 83.0 mph, got him! Poor stroke, clipped straight to point. Just short of a length and Warner has picked out Carberry square on the off side. He lives and dies by the sword and in trying to be uber-aggressive again, Warner pops up an easy catch with a flicked back-foot drive. The delivery might have just stopped in the wicket a little, and it actually just nipped away a touch, it certainly didn't come on as Warner was hoping. Important strike for England after leaking a few runs early doors 34/1
View dismissal SR Watson c & b Anderson 51 160 119 6 1 42.85
51.6 81.2 mph, Anderson has done it! And with a super return catch, great reflexes. Watson has gone for the big straight drive but this ball bounces more than he expects, so it comes off higher on the bat and stays in the air long enough for Anderson to grasp it with both hands at ankle height. Very good catch 155/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Anderson b Stokes 148 350 245 17 0 60.40
136.1 77.8 mph, what is this? A wicket! Stokes this time has his first Test victim! Clarke has tried to turn this through square leg but a leading edge lobs up to midwicket where Anderson dives forward to take the catch. And relief for Stokes as his foot was safely behind the line this time! 457/6
View dismissal SPD Smith b Panesar 6 22 17 1 0 35.29
58.3 53.3 mph, Panesar strikes! Beautiful delivery, the turn away from the right-handers has done the job. Smith has played from the crease and defended with far from a straight bat - it was angled horribly - and the ball turns past it to clip the off stump. Lovely ball, poor shot, and England are on top 174/4
View dismissal GJ Bailey c Swann b Broad 53 111 93 4 3 56.98
85.3 83.7 mph, super catch! Bailey is gone, and it's the Broad bouncer that does the job. Bailey went for the hook, it flew off the bat but in the air, and Swann at square leg hurls himself up and to his right, clasps the ball safely and Bailey's entertaining innings has come to an end 257/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Prior b Broad 118 274 177 11 5 66.66
150.5 85.2 mph, slashes at a wide one and nicks behind and England have finally removed Australia's wicketkeeper. Quite a lazy cut stroke at a wide delivery without moving his feet and it took a thick top edge that carried low through to Prior who took the catch smartly 529/9
View dismissal MG Johnson c Broad b Swann 5 13 13 1 0 38.46
139.3 55.0 mph, and there's another wicket! Johnson has misjudged Graeme Swann's flight, driving uppishly and trying to clear mid-on but it has provided Stuart Broad with one of the simpler catches he will take. Might have been a bit of over-spin from Swann too, well bowled 474/7
View dismissal PM Siddle c †Prior b Stokes 2 11 9 0 0 22.22
142.3 82.8 mph, Stokes has his second wicket, and that was a lovely delivery! He's angled this in and managed to get this ball to straighten a bit, Siddle plays straight and gets a thick edge through to the keeper 483/8

  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook* b Johnson 3 13 11 0 0 27.27
2.4 92.0 mph, cleaned him up! Johnson on the charge again, beaten Cook for pace past the outside edge and Cook was nowhere near it. It might have straightened a fraction from an off stump line but Cook has simply been done for sheer pace at over 90mph, didn't get forward enough, tried in vain to get the bat down on it but seem to be aiming at mid-on and missed it completely 9/1
View dismissal MA Carberry c Warner b Watson 60 202 144 10 0 41.66
45.6 77.0 mph, wow! Out of nowhere Carberry has gone! We were one ball away from a fifth straight maiden over and Carberry gets a short one from Watson and goes for the pull, he absolutely creamed it out of the middle of the bat but Warner at forward square leg has thrust the hands down and somehow taken that in his left hand alone 111/4
View dismissal JE Root c Rogers b Lyon 15 114 80 1 0 18.75
29.6 57.0 mph, top-edged sweep and find deep square leg can you believe it? All the hard work from Root and he's fallen to a very weak dismissal, that is a cheap surrender and Australia have been gifted the opening breakthrough, what a waste for England. Root was sweeping from well outside off, he was swinging hard and looked like he was going for slog sweep but a bit of bounce - that Lyon often gets - is his downfall 57/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Bailey b Siddle 4 19 12 0 0 33.33
34.3 83.7 mph, Pietersen takes a little step down the pitch and clips straight to short midwicket and again Pietersen falls right into the trap. George Bailey juggled the chance but held on well and that is the second very weak dismissal this morning. Very very poor indeed from such a great player, flicking right into the trap and now England are in trouble 66/3
IR Bell not out 72 162 106 9 4 67.92
View dismissal BA Stokes lbw b Johnson 1 19 12 0 0 8.33
50.1 89.5 mph, full at the pads, huge appeal for lbw, not out given, Erasmus reckoned Stokes hit this, it rebounds to point, there's a run taken and the throws ends up going for four overthrows but Clarke reviews the lbw call. Johnson is mighty close on the no-ball but just okay. Replays suggest the delivery was pad first, Stokes hit his pad with the bat and Hawk Eye has it...crashing into middle and leg and Stokes is gone. Johnson quick and straight and once again too good for an England batsman. Nothing Stokes would have ever faced before this bowling. Like Cook, he was simply done for pace 117/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c †Haddin b Johnson 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
50.5 89.1 mph, well four balls is all Prior has lasted because he's felt for one outside off stump and nicked it behind. Two rough shorties followed by one pitched up sliding across him, Prior played forward and followed it outside off, getting a thin edge through to Haddin who claimed the catch down low 117/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Johnson 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
50.6 92.2 mph, haha cleaned him up! What an over from Johnson. Fabulous fast bowling and that is surely one of the great Ashes overs. Fast on a length, Broad stepped across to try and flick to leg but has lost his leg stump. Remarkable stuff, a triple wicket maiden from Johnson! Again, the pace is simple too much for England 117/7
View dismissal GP Swann c Clarke b Johnson 7 16 7 0 0 100.00
54.5 91.5 mph, full and wide, Swann swings at it, gets a thick outside edge and Clarke takes a superb catch high over his right shoulder, a fine grab and Johnson has a five-for again. Swann was not going to sit around waiting for a ball to get him out, he chases a full wide one, didn't get his foot right out to meet it and nicks off. Another superb Australian catch 135/8
View dismissal JM Anderson b Johnson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
54.6 93.4 mph, full and straight and knocks out middle stump! This is fast becoming one of the great fast bowling spells. Full, fast and furious that pierces the gap between bat and pad and takes the top of middle stump. Absolutely perfect from Johnson and he need only look at Anderson this time 135/9
View dismissal MS Panesar b Johnson 2 60 35 0 0 5.71
68.2 89.3 mph, gone! Johnson gets the job done immediately! Quick, accurate and takes Panesar's off stump. A little inside edge onto the pad and then it clips back into the stumps and England are all out for 172 172/10

2.2 84.6 mph, full ball that Rogers comes forward to and edges behind. Something to cheer for England, poor stroke, played on the walk and a thick edge carries through to Prior. Excellent length from Anderson, drawing the batsman forward and he felt for it when he probably could have left it 4/1

11.4 82.8 mph, short of a length, pulled and finds a diving Nathan Lyon at long leg. You can't make this up, outrageous. Absolutely no trouble whatsoever, this delivery isn't quick or even that short, Carberry has simply picked it up straight to long leg. It's another good catch with Lyon getting down low to his right 20/2
View dismissal JE Root c †Haddin b Lyon 87 269 194 9 0 44.84
64.2 54.9 mph, straighter line, it turns in a little, Root was playing back and gets a little inside edge that runs off the pad and Haddin dives forward to take it and that is the breakthrough that Australia wanted. Root walks straight off, no century for him, but at least he's put up some kind of a fight. Little unlucky there but throughout the match fortune has favoured Australia and they've deserved their luck too. Good catch from Haddin diving forward 171/5
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Siddle 53 151 99 2 3 53.53
47.1 80.6 mph, gone! Siddle has made the breakthrough that Australia desperately needed, and it has come with an inside edge onto off stump. Siddle didn't nip it back much, but just enough, and it has caught the inside edge and Pietersen has played on. Huge breakthrough. 131/3
View dismissal IR Bell c Johnson b Smith 6 28 19 1 0 31.57
53.4 54.2 mph, Smith has struck! And he's done it with a full toss, what a disappointment for Bell! He has thrown it away. Smith lobs it up and this is a low fullie, there to hit but Bell has not got hold of it, all he has managed to do is chip it up to mid-on where - who else? - Mitchell Johnson runs a little to his right and takes a catch low to the ground 143/4

98.5 79.7 mph, short and hooked again and, well, well, well can you Adam and Eve it, picks out deep-backward square leg. England, deary me. Harris the catcher this time. There's no point describing the wicket because you know the drill by now surely 301/9
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Lyon b Siddle 29 32 26 3 1 111.53
90.5 81.0 mph, hooked again and this time Broad puts it right down deep square leg's throat how awfully typical for this batting performance. That is an utter miserable stroke. Banged in again and Broad falls for it hook, line and sinker, slogging it straight to Lyon who barely has to move coming in from the rope. Pretty pathetic that from Broad 255/7

97.3 83.9 mph, back of a length outside off, Swann pushes hard at it away from his body with a nothing stroke and gets a thick edge to second slip where Clarke bags an easy catch at shoulder height with two hands. The delivery shaped away a touch but started too wide to induce a stroke. Chalk it up as another poor dismissal 293/8
