    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
