    22.2 Strauss comes rushing down the track, and finds the man at short midwicket with his attempted lofted stroke, it was teasingly tossed up, Strauss took the bait, and hit it straight to David Hussey who throws the ball gleefully in the air after taking a neat catch 121/2
    7.3 Prior has run out of luck finally this innings, and to an absolute beauty from Johnson, it was fullish, swinging in from around off stump, and Prior played all around it, and the ball crashed in to off stump, Johnson strikes in his first over 41/1

    49.5 short ball and Trott falls after top edging a pull shot. He made room and skied it, Tait called for the catch and took it cleanly 330/6
    34.1 and the Powerplay jinx continues! Lee pitched on a good length around off stump, Pietersen tried to go over mid-off, the bat turned in his hand as he mis-timed it and he couldn't clear the fielder at mid-off. Steven Smith took a simple catch at waist height 189/3
    45.5 caught, Bell makes room to hit a full ball through the off side but hits it flat and hard right at Clarke at extra cover 293/4
    48.5 caught at short third man. Morgan whipped around to get into position to play the reverse swat and make good contact with the length ball too. He hit it in the air, though, and straight to Tait in the circle 319/5

    12.1 Yardy strikes! Great catch from Andrew Strauss. Another fifty-and-out for Watson, he was aiming to whip through the leg side but hit the ball in the air. Strauss, at short midwicket, leapt to his right to pluck the ball out of the air. A timely wicket for England 87/2
    7.6 Trott is back on the field and back into action with a tremendous, diving catch at short fine leg! Leg stump half-volley from Anderson, begging to be put away and Haddin gets nicely into position to flick to fine leg. The ball goes in the air, however, and Trott goes airborne to pull off a great catch. He's still got some juice in the legs then! That'll lift England 71/1
    23.5 oh dear, Ferguson and Johnson had done so well but they've really messed this up. Johnson tried to slog sweep, it lobbed off his pad out to the leg side and Ferguson toook off for a single that Mitch wasn't ready for, Ferguson turns back but has no hope of beating the throw from Prior to Yardy 166/3
    29.5 this time Johnson is gone! Pietersen makes the breakthrough, giving it some air and pushing it well wide of off, Johnson was down the pitch again, but couldn't connect, and Prior whips the bails off 194/4
    48.5 slower-ball bouncer, Clarke aims a well-controlled paddle-pull into the deep. They push hard for the second ... but he's short of his ground! Clarke is run out and Australia are eight wickets down 327/8
    35.1 he picks up a wicket first ball, the dangerous White departs! It was short and rising to about neck height, White swivelled into pull but couldn't control the shot and the ball lands in Eoin Morgan's hands out at deep square leg. He barely had to move there. Finn, who tumbled over in his follow-through as he does so often, stood up just in time to see the catch taken 224/5
    46.6 got him! Finn strikes, after beating the outside edge a couple of times he sends down another slower cutter on a length and this time the ball kisses the edge of Hussey's flailing bat. Straight through to Prior, the celebrations are very muted indeed but that's given England a chance 314/6
    47.4 the disaster that was waiting to happen! Clipped straight to a sliding midwicket fielder, Australian batsmen running all over the place and Haddin is well short of his ground as the throw comes in to Anderson. He and Smith trudge off, heads bowed 317/7
