    30.1 got him first ball! Cut back sharply on Watson who was a little late on this good, quick and straight delivery and that's out! 126/2
    18.6 and Swann strikes in his first over! Around the wicket to Katich, who misses a ball that goes on with the arm, he's struck in line and Aleem Dar says that's lbw. 85/1
    38.3 got him! He's out! A quick bouncer, Ponting went for a hook and got a thin edge through to Prior. Onions has bowled so, so well this morning 163/4
    30.2 he's bowled him! He's bowled him! Hussey has left a straight one and his off stump is pegged back! What a disastrous start for Australia 126/3
    49.4 oh he's got him! A huge inswinger here, curves late and strikes Clarke on middle and leg, Rudi Koertzen lifts the finger 193/5
    51.4 wonderful catch! Prior makes a super take diving to his left across first slip. Fullish ball swinging away from North, who got a thick edge to one that he might have left alone 202/6
    53.5 wow! What a delivery! Anderson comes a touch wider and gets the ball to straighten and it comprehensively smashes Manou's off stump, that is almost the perfect ball. 203/8
    51.5 oh he's gone too! Swings back in to Johnson, who is in two minds whether to leave it - he does leave it - and it hits him above the knee-roll 202/7

    61.5 fantastic delivery, swinging in, then straightening a touch on the right-hander who tries to work it through midwicket but gets a thick outside edge for Anderson's five 229/9
    70.4 got him! Another slapping drive finds Swann in the gully, and that's the final wicket for Onions who finishes with four wickets 263/10

    44.1 Gone! Hilfenhaus makes the breakthrough, Strauss goes at last. Short of a length outside off and he gets a thick top edge attempting to cut, straightforward take for Manou. 141/3
    1.4 gone! Siddle breaks through in his first over, Manou takes his first Test catch and Cook is gone for a duck. Fuller ball outside off and Cook drives, gets an edge to Manou, who takes it low to his left 2/1
    19.2 he's dragged it on! Technical weakness exposed by Hilfenhaus as Bopara goes back, his bat coming down diagonally and he gets a thick inside edge into his stumps 60/2
    55.6 that's out. That's so out. And even Rudi thinks so! Inswinger on middle stump, Bell plays all around it (as he did earlier in the day. And two days ago) and that's out 168/5
    50.5 Hilfenhaus gets another! Well bowled, a fullish outswinger and Collingwood drives, the thick edge is well taken by Ponting above his head at second slip 159/4
    71.3 oops, mistimes this one and that's the end of Prior. Short ball, pulled and comes off the bottom of the bat, lobbing up to mid-on where the 12th man Phil Hughes takes the catch 257/6
    80.4 well, well. That's a very odd dismissal, it spins out of the rough and Flintoff plays no shot, but doesn't get his gloves out of the way, and the catch is taken at first slip 309/7
    93.3 got him this time! Gifts Siddle an easy catch, and that's the end of England's innings 376/10
    87.3 got him! Slower ball punched to mid-off. A really soft and tame dismissal but well bowled Johnson 348/8
    88.6 got him! Well bowled Hilfenhaus, deserves that. Just outside off, Anderson cuts when he should have left it, and edges it to Manou behind 355/9

    43.6 Anderson strikes in his first over of the day! Watson looks to drive straight and he's got a thin outside edge through to Prior 137/3
    13.2 Onions makes the breakthrough! Very good delivery, fullish length and it seams away a tiny bit, Katich looks to drive straight and gets an outside edge through to Prior 47/1
    14.6 oh what a ball - what a delivery! Tossed up, dragged him forward and sharp spin turns through the gate to hit his stumps! Fantastic over and a brilliant piece of bowling to remove Ponting 52/2
    52.6 massive wicket! Broad does the job and gets a thin outside edge from Hussey, he's just probing outside off and Hussey pushes and manages to find contact with a ball that didn't seam a lot 161/4

    103.1 what a catch from Anderson to deny North a hundred! Didn't move his feet, drove uppishly and Anderson at gully took off to his right and clung on with his right hand. What a stunner! 346/5
