    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
