    31.1 lofted, high towards deep midwicket and Finn takes the catch low the ground ... Watson goes! Swann tempted Watson out of his crease, maybe dragged the length down a smidge, the batsman heaved high but it's a long boundary and Finn plunged forward to claim it 128/4
    4.1 and there is the wicket! Pulled straight up and into the hands of square leg. It was short and slightly wide, Warner tried to fetch it to leg and was late on the stroke, getting a top edge that looped up to square leg. Big wicket for England and the extra pace of Finn tells again 15/1
    14.2 great catch! And Broad strikes, it was dug in and Forrest looked to pull, it came off the face of the bat and a diving Kieswetter snaffled it with one hand, superb take. Seemed to be beaten for pace there Forrest, he looked to help it on its way but ended up brushing it behind where he was very well taken 66/2
    20.3 but this is edged behind! Goodness me I did not expect that, a little cutter outside off and Clarke feathers it low to Kieswetter. It was a good length and Clarke pushed at it and got a thing edge through to the keeper, good area from Bopara and a mistake from Clarke 101/3
    46.2 another full bunger and bowled 'im! Excellent death delivery from Bresnan, pitched up and asking the batsman to take a chance - Bailey did but his heave-ho was unsuccessful, the timbers sounding a death rattle 222/6
    44.1 full and wide, hoicked back at the bowler, who half stops the ball, turns, scrambles, throws at one stump ... and gone! Brilliant work from Finn, leaving Hussey yards short and squeezing the boot back on Australia's collective throat 206/5
    46.5 another one down, caught a short fine leg trying to ramp the ball over the infield! Bresnan's length has been hard to hit, Wade tried to improvise but couldn't clear the man. Bresnan looks like a man who's found a twinkie down the back of the sofa 223/7

    6.1 and there is a wicket with Cook caught on the crease and plumb lbw. Boy did Australia need that. Excellent delivery, good length around off stump, it shaped back to beat the forward push of Cook and caught him around the knee roll bang in front of middle 40/1

    33.1 and he does strike! Bell goes to cut a ball that slid onto him and loses his off stump. It was too full for the stroke and a poor stroke first ball to a new bowler anyway, and Bell missed it and it ran onto off stump 171/3
    14.5 Trott advances on Watson, gets a faint inside edge, and the ball rattles the stumps! The ball was pretty similar to the one Bell hit out of the park but Trott played with an angled bat - where Bell's was straight - and Watson skidded it through the gap to disturb wicket. Trott's off and Aussies/aesthetes everywhere rejoice 81/2
    45.2 tossed up, tip and run to mid-off - and Brett Lee's direct hit sends Bopara back! That's a shame, he should have been there at the end, but a matchwinning [not yet, not yet] top knock from the Essex man 250/4
