    3.1 gone! Harris strikes! Strauss's adventure ends. Full and inviting a drive, Strauss swishes hard, but the angle takes it across him and he can only manage a faint edge through to Paine. Big wicket that. 16/1
    16.1 gone! First international wicket for Australia's youngest ever ODI debutant! The ball pitched on a length on off stump, perhaps coming in a touch off the seam, and beat a loose defensive stroke from Kieswetter who played footed to the crease. It may have kept just a touch low, but nipped between bat and pad rather than under. Australia are right back in this! 81/3
    13.5 gone! A wicket appears from nowhere, Watto had just dished up a fairly gentle ball quite wide of off, KP drove on the up and sliced it to Ponting at backward point, who tumbled forward and held on to a good catch. Just the wicket that Australia needed, England were rumbling along quite nicely until now. 75/2
    19.6 gone! Another wicket falls, and Watto is mobbed by his ebullient team-mates! Collingwood had charged down the track and tried to lift the ball over mid-off, but couldn't quite get to it and the ball lobbed off the toe of the bat straight to Hopes at mid off. It was another cross-seam delivery from Watson - perhaps it just held up a touch 97/4

    34.5 gone! Will there be a twist here? Wright shuffled right across his stumps in trying to work the ball to leg and Harris speared one in full, fast and straight. The Australians went up as one as soon as the ball struck the pad, and the umpire agrees 192/5

    45.4 good delivery brings an end to an excellent innings from Bresnan, full, swinging in, quick and crashed into the stumps, but Bresnan has really done his job there 263/6
