    0.6 what a shambles! The ball bobbles into the leg side off the thigh pad, Pietersen wanted to keep strike, Carberry wasn't moving at the non-striker's end and by the time he did set off Pietersen was almost down to meet him. McKay had plenty of time to run from his follow through, pick up the ball, and make his way to the stumps. Carberry leaves fuming. He reckons he's been sold down the river by KP. Did look like a single if Carberry had gone straight away 5/1
    5.3 miscued pull and Pietersen is out, simply caught at square leg! MJ has beaten KP for pace there, the ball was on to him before he got through the stroke, came off the bat near the splice and looped gently, straight to the man on the edge of the ring. England's experimental opening pair are back in the lab 26/2

    13.3 pops the ball back, Voges gets Root caught and bowled! Never let it be said Michael Clarke doesn't know what he's doing. Voges tossed it up, Root advanced but the ball stuck a little on the pitch and came straight back off the face of the bat, the bowler tumbled forward and held it well 52/3

  • Rain ruins second match of series

    The rain, which is threatening to turn this series into a non-event, prevented Australia from taking advantage of a strong start at Edgbaston after they had removed Australia's top order

  • Voges backs Johnson for Ashes

    Adam Voges has said that Mitchell Johnson is "doing everything right" in his bid to win a recall to Australia's Test side

  • Giles takes a long-term view

    England's selection policy for this one-day series has split opinion - and defeat at Old Trafford suggested they will struggle to match Australia - with the role of Ben Stokes as a third seamer a key issue
