    19.6 and the bouncer does the trick! It's a quick one and right on line, Strauss can't get out of the way and the ball clearly takes his gloves and flies up in the air, Clarke runs back from the cordon to take a simple chance 67/2
    7.6 GOT HIM! That's a catch and a half from Hussey at gully, as Cook felt for this wide delivery and Hussey flings himself to his right to snaffle a corker! 21/1
    24.4 and the slower ball does the trick! Johnson runs the fingers over this one and Bopara is committed to the drive, he mistimes it horribly and lobs it up for a simple catch to Hughes at point 90/3
    70.5 got him! A terrible shot from Pietersen, trying to sweep this from miles outside off without getting down into position, and he top edges it meekly straight into the hands of a delighted Katich at short-leg 241/5
    65.3 got him - what a catch by Haddin diving to his right! Just outside the off stump, Collingwood edged it and Haddin moved a little late, but clung on with both hands 228/4
    88.3 inswing back into the right-hander and he's bowled him! A fantastic delivery by Siddle - huge, late inswing and it forces its way through Prior's gate 329/7
    86.4 bowled him! An horrid, angled bat as he tries to drive but gets a thick inside edge which hammers into his stumps 327/6
    102.4 down the pitch and he tries to lift him over mid-on but he can't - an easy catch for Hussey who jumps back and swallows it 423/9
    93.5 bowled him! Johnson gets one on target at last and bowls Broad off his pads and around his legs 355/8

    14.6 got him! Flintoff wins the battle with a ball that perhaps moves in a touch and Hughes, trying to punch it through off, gets the thinnest of inside edges behind to Prior 60/1
    84.6 got him! A booming inswinger back into Katich, a toe-crusher hitting him on the full and he's beaten for pace and England finally have a wicket 299/2
    94.5 Panesar gets the breakthrough! The ball was a touch short, turning away, and Ponting on the back foot tried to punch through cover but got a thick inside edge back onto the stumps 331/4
    90.1 and Jimmy Anderson gets another! It's pushed across Hussey and just straightening a touch, Hussey gets the line wrong and a thin outside edge goes through to Prior 325/3
    136.5 got him! A terrific bouncer surprising Clarke who was in two minds over whether to pull, and it got too big on him, gloving it through to Prior 474/5

    16.6 Hauritz strikes! A shortish ball again, Strauss tries to repeat the square cut and it bounces a fraction more, all he gets on it is a thin top-edge that Brad Haddin gloves nicely 46/4
    4.3 gone! Straight ball this time, no movement in the air or off the pitch, Cook quite simply misses the ball and is trapped dead in front. Aleem Dar sticks up the finger at world-record pace 13/1
    5.3 and Hilfenhaus strikes! Hilfenhaus pitches it in line and it moves away a fraction, striking Bopara on the top flap of the pad. Doctrove sends him on his way. 17/2
    10.4 oh KP what have you done! That's an awful piece of judgment as Hilfenhaus pitches one on off, it doesn't move off the line, Pietersen leaves it alone and has his off stump knocked out of the ground. 31/3
    93.3 he's dropped him, has he? Parries it - no he's caught him! Collingwood is out! He went back, trying to force it off the back foot but edged it high to Hussey at gully who parried it above his head, and he clung on the second time 233/9
    26.3 Hauritz again! This one bounces more, and turns, and Prior tries for that late-cut that he likes, but the extra bounce does him in and the edge is snapped up well by Clarke at slip diving to his right 70/5
    49.4 got him! Flintoff prods forward meekly and weakly to one which just held its line and it just carries to Ponting, low at second slip 127/6
    66.4 gone! This one skidded through somewhat pitching on off and going on with the arm, Broad can't get bat on ball, and he is comprehensively plumb 159/7
    86.1 gone! He's got him! A straight delivery on middle-and-off, too full to pull and Swann's trapped in front - kept a little low and that's plumb 221/8
