    14.5 here's the breakthrough, and you have to say that was coming. Full again, a big mow from Watson, and Wright at short cover has a catch for the cameras as he goes airborne to take a comfortable two-handed pluck. 62/1
    15.6 and that's the second wicket! More frustration from Australia, a touch short but Paine got completely underneath an attempted flick, and scooped a steepler to Eoin Morgan on the deep midwicket fence. A well-judged take, and England are in business 64/2
    33.1 Got 'im! First ball, outside off, a decent line and length, and White is drawn into an attempted glide to third man. But his edge is just too thin, and Prior gathers well behind the stumps 142/4
    19.1 bouncer, and Clarke is utterly nailed by that one. A loose swish of the blade, a thin edge, and an easy catch for Prior. Excellent change of approach from Wright, and he's made a vital breakthrough 73/3
    44.4 too straight for that leg-side flip! Anderson fires it in straight; Ferguson tries to whack him over the leg side and is cleaned up 201/7
    36.6 bowled him! Fine ball but average shot. Hussey's off stump has been a target all summer, and that one just tweaked enough to peg it back. He was playing all down the wrong line there 155/5
    42.1 and after a long delay, Gould raises his finger. Quicker ball, he went for a sweep but was trapped dead in front of middle 179/6

    17.5 got him! Australia have three as Strauss tried to turn it to leg, but was squared up - it gripped on the surface - and spooned it back to the bowler 85/3
    14.5 he's got him and Watson's over the moon! Bopara walked across his stumps and tried to work it through midwicket but that's taking out middle-and-leg 74/1
    16.2 terrible shot by Prior. A loose flap outside off, on the up, and he gets a thin edge through to Paine 76/2
    19.6 Shah? Involved in another run-out? Never! Cut out to the off side, Collingwood calls him through but Shah stuttered. His stutter caused Collingwood to stutter, and after another stutter Shah got his skates on but it was much too late 97/4
    46.1 and that is the end of that. Fast, full, unstoppable. Paul Collingwood's valiant innings comes to an end via the thinnest of toe-ends onto leg stump, and Australia are 2-0 up! 210/10
    26.4 and there it is! Well, that was coming in that over. Morgan was tied down, and then beaten by a fuller length, slightly straighter, and nailed in front of off as he attempted to work across the line 129/5
    32.3 gone! England in trouble now! 93mph outside off, and it lifted a touch more than Wright thought as he flashed hard but got the thinnest of edges through to Paine 157/6
    36.4 very poor shot from Bresnan. Short of a length and angled across him, with no feet movement he threw his hands at it in an attempted cut and got a thick edge to Paine 168/7
    43.3 dirty stroke, and that's a waste I'm afraid. Full and straight, a slower ball, and Swann's stumps are splattered as he tries a slog sweep 204/8
    43.5 full and angling in, Sidebottom is beaten all ends up, and now Australia are circling for the kill 204/9
