    3.3 ah, now, we have a review that could be for both caught and lbw. Paine was walking down the pitch and tried to flick the ball to leg, it's hit him on the pad and lobbed out to cover, where the catch has been taken. So England want to know if it's either lbw or caught, which Paul Reiffel decides against. The review shows that he was hit in line and it was hitting the stumps, with no edge suggested by Hot Spot. And despite being hit so far down the pitch - he's out lbw! 16/1
    19.4 smart work from Finn on the long-on boundary sees the end of Haddin! Poor shot really, he just lifted the ball without much intent towards Finn on the boundary, who back-pedalled to take the catch, felt himself about to go over the rope to through the ball up, stepped over before coming back and completing the catch 72/3
    8.5 Ferguson is gone! Good ball from Anderson as this one bounces sharply outside off and Ferguson fends, and it's well taken high and to the right of Strauss, the only slip in place. Ferguson probably didn't have to play at that bouncer - it wasn't aimed at the body. 35/2
    25.2 Yardy has another! White tortuous innings ends. White edged down the track but only to bunt this with plenty of inside-edge back to Yardy who gleefully held on to the chance 103/4
    39.1 Plunkett strikes! Hussey tries to turn this one to leg but it's bounced a touch more than he expected and lobbed off the shoulder of the bat towards point, where Bell takes a smart catch diving forward 198/5

    46.5 Prior has taken a stunner in the deep! Oh, he can catch it without gloves after all! Johnson swung from the hips, trying to clear the boundary at midwicket, and Prior was about 10 metres inside, then backed back and leapt high to take the catch above his head - terrific catch. 243/6
    48.4 Hastings backed away without looking too sure of what he was doing, Anderson banged it in a touch shorter and a thickish top edge looped out to cover 263/7

    0.2 have that! Tait strikes with a thunderbolt! Strauss hung back to a full ball and was still half-way through his defensive prod when the inswinger pegged back the top of off stump 0/1
    1.6 that is a miserable ending to a poor innings. Length ball and Davies was sitting on the back foot, aimed a swish across the line and the top edge sailed up and Haddin did the rest. This might end quickly 5/2
    8.6 Trott departs! Length ball outside off stump, Trott aimed another dab but the edge went through to Hussey at slip. The tour is ending swiftly 48/3
    10.5 that ends a pretty dreadful innings. Another wide ball full outside off and sliced straight to point. Pietersen's tour ends and it feels like half of him was home already 56/4
    14.1 Johnson gets another, Bell's tour ends. Upper cut to a wide ball straight down to third man who held the simplest of catches. England are heading for the early plane 64/5
    25.1 Krejza has his first ODI wicket! And it comes through a terrific catch from Hussey at cover. Krejza really threw it up and it dropped on Prior, who drove uppishly towards cover and Hussey hurled himself to his right to snare it. 119/6

    29.3 Krejza has his second wicket, tossed up outside off stump Wright slashed hard but it looped off the outside edge towards Bollinger who dived forward to short third man to take a tough chance 152/7
    40.3 there's the breakthrough the Australians wanted, and it comes through a regulation edge behind, as Plunkett drives hard outside off and Haddin pouches a simple catch 200/8
    40.6 bowled. Base of middle stump. If Tait got a yorker on line, you just knew Finn was in trouble, and he was backing away and trying to slash it through the off side, but Tait was far too quick. 200/9
    43.6 there it is! Australia have won this series 6-1 as Hastings bounces Anderson, who tries for a hook but just gets a top edge that flies high in the air and Haddin takes the catch. 222/10
