    5.1 two wickets in two balls! Both openers depart, England are in a hole now. Short, Strauss was quickly onto the pull but the ball didn't come off the middle of the bat, flying straight to Smith at square leg for an easy catch 20/2

    4.6 bowled 'im! Lee has comprehensively won this battle, firing one at the top of off. Prior's feet went nowhere, the ball bursts past his attempted nurdle to gully and makes a mess of the stumps. Lee celebrates with a hop and a kick, and that's the first breakthrough for Australia! 20/1
    6.1 gone first ball! Lee strikes again! It wasn't the best ball, a touch short and angling down the leg side. Trott flicked off his hip but in the air, and Bollinger tumbles forward at short fine leg to take the catch. England are in disarray. Brett Lee is on a hat-trick... 22/3
    21.4 Pietersen is gone! Oh, John Hastings has done it with the slower bouncer! It has absolutely stopped in mid-air on the way to Pietersen, who wants to pull hard but is playing too quickly and ends up swinging one-handed and gets a top edge that's taken by Lee at mid-on 95/4

    25.4 gone! Bell has played on and Hastings has got rid of both the well-set batsmen in KP and Bell. This one swings in and Bell tries for the late cut, the movement does him in and his bottom edge runs on to the off stump 103/6
    22.5 another one goes! Morgan has holed out to Smith! Not a very clever piece of batting, you'd have to say, as he gets underneath a lofted drive and skies it to long-off, where Johnson runs around to his right and takes a catch that nearly bobbles out of his hands. 98/5
    32.1 and Watson strikes with his first ball! Collingwood decided he was going after the medium-pacer and lofted it high over mid-on, Hastings began in the circle and ran halfway back to the boundary to take an outstanding catch running with the flight of the ball. 128/7
    32.6 bouncer and it's caught behind! Watson has two in his first over! Woakes has tried to hook this one and got a tickle through to Haddin 128/8
    37.6 there we go! Very full outside off, Shahzad flings his bat into a drive and a thick edge ends up nestled in a tumbling Brad Haddin's gloves. Australia just one wicket away now 145/9

    45.3 there it is, finally. Another ugly heave from Finn, the ball flicks the bail and that's a series win for Australia. Although not without a few flutters during this partnership, you'd think 198/10
