    14.3 flighted, spinning past the bat as Wade advances and stumped! Lovely dismissal for Tredwell, who lured the struggling Wade out of his crease, beat him with the turn - in fact almost bowled him - and Kieswetter was alert to whip off the bails 49/3
    10.4 tossed up, misses with the sweep and gone! Warner often looks a little uncertain trying to work slower bowlers around and he falls to a plumb lbw decision, the ball was full and straightening on middle and he didn't get anything on it. Hawk Eye showing pretty big turn for Tredwell, suggesting the ball would have gone on to hit off 43/1
    14.1 they try for two to long-on, Tredwell takes the throw at the bowler's end and swings his arm behind his body to break the wicket ... Forrest is struggling here, yep, he's a few inches short. The batsmen were hustling, trying to put pressure on the fielders but it backfired and Forrest is felled 49/2
    15.4 dabbed towards point ... and a direct hit from Eoin Morgan runs out Clarke! Australia are in disarray here, trying to push for singles as England crowd round like vultures. Clarke ran the gauntlet but was left well short by an excellent throw as Morgan fielded on the bounce 55/4
    19.1 loosener, down the leg side - and Smith gets a tickle through to Kieswetter! Australia hit another bump in the road and that's a gimme for Bopara, whose gentle medium pace somehow foxed Smith 77/5
    21.1 Bopara strikes again as Hussey feathers through to the keeper! It was another innocuous delivery, slightly short and wide, Hussey tried to dab it through the off side and nicked off. Bopara's golden arm could probably refloat the European economy right now 86/6

    29.6 big appeal and not out...England are convinced Pattinson edged the slower ball as he heaved to leg. No reviews left for England. There was certainly a noise. Oh, hang on, the umpires are conferring about whether this has carried. So it could be out after all. This isn't a review, it's the umpires asking for the TV help. Everyone standing around. And he's out!. So Aleem Dar clearly heard an edge 120/7

    25.5 touch shorter, tight line and Cook nicks off to first slip. It was probably wasn't quite there either to cut or drive but Cook, in a hurry now, had a go and Clarke clung on 126/3
    0.6 full and straight, Bell advances, clips off the pads straight to midwicket! Bailey takes it comfortably and that's a first failure for Bell in his latest incarnation as an opener. Slightly soft dismissal but an early wicket is just what Australia needed 5/1

    9.4 this one spins, beats Trott's sweep and bowls him! Clarke held it up a bit this time, Trott was through the shot and the ball gripped, straightened and rattled into the top of off. Nice bowling from the captain - if only he could trust the frontline left-arm spinner in his side to do the same! 34/2
