    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

    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
