    7.5 Bollinger's good day just got much better! Strauss was again pinned on the crease and missed his attempted defence. Thudded into the pad and was given out. Strauss headed off but Trott has called a review! Height could be the issue.... but no, it is indeed hitting the top of leg stump 36/2
    2.5 Prior's comeback is over! Lee is rewarded for a very good start. Good length ball around off stump, Prior got into position to defend but it clipped the outside edge and eased through to Watson at first slip 12/1
    23.2 oh, Smith has struck second ball! And that was a pretty poor shot from Trott, who has pulled in the air straight to the catching man at short midwicket. He's picked the fielder out precisely. It may have been the topspinner, bounced a touch more than Trott expected. 83/4
    7.6 gone first ball! Pietersen departs and Bollinger is on fire! That dreaded inside edge again. Pushed across Pietersen who stood tall to defend, clipped the inside edge and cannoned onto the stumps 36/3
    27.2 gone! Lee strikes second ball of his spell, just as Smith did, and indeed it's Smith who takes the catch at backward point as Bell tries to use the pace and force a cut through the field. 96/5
    34.6 that could be the match! Watson gets the key wicket and Tait, of all people, holds on to a good catch. Morgan tried to flick it to the midwicket boundary it went high and Tait had to run back from mid-on and steady himself to take a tough chance 140/6
    36.4 Watson's the man! The runner has caused all kinds of trouble. Bresnan dropped this by his toes, and Yardy set off for one a non-existent single, Prior sent him back but Watson had gathered and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end. Crazy single attempted 147/7
    43.2 Bollinger has his third! Short ball that Bresnan tried to flip up to the third man boundary, couldn't get it fine enough and Watson ran in to take the catch 178/8
    43.5 It's Bollinger's day! Tredwell is late coming forward and it smacks him flush on the pad in front. One more to go! 180/9
    44.6 that's it! Clarke has finished it off! Tremlett clipped to midwicket, Shahzad set off for one that was never there and couldn't turn back in time. Australia have a hat-trick of wins! 184/10
