    90.2 GOT HIM! Strauss leaves one which bends back - a disastrous leave from the England captain and his off stump is pegged back. What a start for Australia! 364/7
    47.5 oh dear! Cook misses his century and Johnson, of all people gets the breakthrough! It's a straight ball that keeps a touch low and strikes Cook in line, Billy Doctrove gives him lbw 196/1
    53.6 he's got him! That's a great ball, straightening instead of swinging, and Bopara is struck below the knee roll dead in front. 222/2
    65.1 got him! Terrific ball that moved away just a touch from Pietersen, drawn forward into a drive, and it took a thin outside edge to a diving Haddin behind the stumps 267/3
    76.3 got him! Strauss is fuming with Collingwood here, as he skips down the pitch and miscues it - a horrible welly - straight to mid-on 302/4
    79.3 what a cracker! Johnson has got one to swing back in to the right-hander Prior and it's through the gate, takes off stump. Australia are well and truly back in this! 317/5
    82.3 gone! The old ball works out for Hilfenhaus. A great outswinger takes the edge of Flintoff's bat and Ponting and second slip snaffles the opportunity 333/6
    92.6 bowled him! Three in fifteen minutes for Australia as Broad again attempts a loose drive outside off and drags it on 378/9
    91.5 edged to Ponting at second slip! Brilliant from Siddle, pitching it short and angling it up the hill and at chest height to Swann who angles it straight to slip 370/8
    101.4 got him this time! Got big on him and square cut it low to gully who took a fine catch 425/10

    2.3 Anderson strikes! Hughes tries to pull down leg side and England are confident it's tickled his gloves, Rudi Koertzen's left index finger eventually confirms their suspicions 4/1
    32.4 this is up in the air at fine leg - what a catch! A stunner from Broad. On the pull, he top-edged it and Broad ran 10 or 12 yards to his right before diving, taking it low. Brilliant 103/3
    6.6 big appeal, and what's happened here? It was a dual lbw/caught appeal and Ponting is out caught at first slip! Angled in, there must've been an inside edge onto the pad and after Koertzen checks if the ball carried, he gives Ponting out! 10/2
    35.6 bowled him! He's bowled him! Hussey's left a straight one! 95.1mph on the off stump, held its line and smashed the top of off 111/4
    36.3 he's gone too! Clarke's whipped an inswinger to midwicket - that was definitely a plan and Cook took a good, very low catch 111/5
    42.3 gone! North looks to pull but it wasn't short enough and he ran out of room, drags a thick inside edge back onto his stumps. 139/6
    47.5 Broad strikes with another short one! Haddin hooks but doesn't get enough of it and it bobs up to midwicket where Cook takes the catch 152/8
    45.5 another one falls for the trap! Broad bangs it in short and Johnson hooks, but he can't keep it down, it skies out to Cook at deep square leg 148/7
    58.3 got him! Short of a length outside off, Hauritz goes back and tries to force it off the back foot but can only edge to Collingwood who holds a safe catch at third slip 196/9
    62.6 got him! Done. Flashed outside off and Strauss takes the catch 215/10

    16.2 got him! Hauritz sorts his line out, flighting it much closer to the off stump and drawing Strauss into a drive - takes the outside edge and flies to first slip - a classical offspinner's dismissal 74/2
    14.1 got him! Excellent delivery, nice and full, and it turns just enough on Cook whose head fell over, as it so often does, and that's taking out middle-and-leg 61/1
    44.4 got him! First three were wider, then this slower and straighter delivery cramps him for room and Bopara gloved it into short-leg's hands. Well bowled sir! 147/3
    51.1 he's gone! Short, outside off and Pietersen felt for it, wafting the bat loosely, and got a thick inside edge to Haddin who took a very fine diving catch to his right 174/4
    71.2 got him - a silent appeal. In fact, a non-appeal. Collingwood walks after edging behind. Australia barely celebrate 311/6
    63.2 oh, what a throw! What a magnificent throw from Marcus North in the ouftield. Prior drives it out to deep point and hares back for what looked like being two, but North's throw from the outfield has hit the one stump he had on offer! Prior is a good half-metre short, the third umpire confirms. 260/5

    9.2 gone, got him, gone! Is he? Hughes edges it to Strauss at first slip who claims this low, scooping catch. Ponting sends Hughes back, asks Strauss if he caught it. Koertzen's given him though. This will run, and run, and run... 34/2
    3.1 got him! Flintoff pitches it nice and full, drawing Katich into a loose drive - his feet moved too late - and though he timed the leather off it, it was struck aerially to Pietersen in the gully who took it low and in front of his chest, rocking backwards 17/1
    23.4 got him - bowled him! Lord's has erupted! That's Anderson's wicket as much as Broad's - outside off, Ponting goes to cut but it's too full and he destroys his stumps! 78/3
    32.4 got him! Fabulous catch at slip! A beautiful delivery, the type Swann bowled to left-handers all winter, and Hussey's lured into a loose drive with Collingwood taking it quite brilliantly to his right, almost behind him 120/4

    98.2 bowled him! Fantastic ball! Swann tosses it up, Clarke comes down the pitch as he always does, but has yorked himself as it spins back sharply into him to knock out his off stump 356/7
    38.4 through him with a straight one! Swann does the job with a ball that goes on with the arm, North might've got a thin inside edge on it and the ball crashes into the stumps 128/5
    87.4 got him! Got him! He's out. A superb line and length, and Haddin feels for it to edge it low to Collingwood at second slip who takes a fine catch 313/6
    106.6 gone! That's it! A 75-year-drought ends as Swann gets one through the advancing Johnson 406/10
    99.4 that's out! Fullish, jagging back sharply off the seam and Hauritz lets it go, and it goes crashing into off stump 363/8
    103.6 gone! Flintoff is mobbed by his team-mates here as he angles one in and gets between Siddle's bat and pad, crashes into middle stump! Five-for, for Flintoff, and England are one wicket from a monumental triumph. 388/9
