    5.5 Jordan takes a spectacular return catch to remove the dangerous Warner as the left-hander hammers back a length ball to the right of Jordan, who instinctively stretches out his hand to grab hold of the chance. Amazing that it even managed to stick, especially with how hard Warner had struck that back. Removes a dangerous thorn in the backside for the English 32/2
    1.3 Finch decides to go for the lofted shot through extra-cover, but hits it quite feebly to the man at mid-off, who takes a nonchalant one-handed catch with his right 6/1

    21.4 Root strikes again! And it's a huge wicket, it's the established Shaun Marsh who goes back to try a cut but the ball is too straight and skids through to clip the off stump. What a strike for Root - he's got two! 114/4
    13.5 and the secret weapon has struck as he gets the Australian captain to slice to the man just in front of point, as Ballance takes a good low catch 70/3
    22.6 Rankin strikes and that's pretty much dead plumb lbw. Angled in and Bailey doesn't move the feet, misses the ball and is struck directly in front. Dharmasena gives it out and that's one of the easier calls he'll have to make in his career 120/5
    34.5 but that's the end of Maxwell! He's pulled straight to midwicket and Bopara takes the catch. Two key wickets in the over, and are Australia's chances over as well? 206/7
    34.1 no, it won't be Haddin who rescues Australia! Bresnan has got him, extra bounce did the trick as Haddin tried to slam this down the ground and top-edged it up towards mid-off and Cook was steady under the ball to take the catch 200/6
    40.6 gets one to swing in from just outside off as Nathan goes for the big heave down the ground, but misses the ball as this careens low into his right pad, which is definitely in line of the stumps. Doesn't look to have got an inside-edge as this one continued onto the pads, so fairplay to the Australians for not wasting the review 235/8

    43.6 and Bopara picks up a wicket as he has Johnson going after this length ball outside off, with a gentle push which catches a faint outside edge to the keeper behind. Leaves England just one wicket away from squaring the series after two 244/9
