    22.3 goddim! Down the pitch by Strauss, flicking it and timing it beautifully but it just carried to Michael Clarke, diving forward at short midwicket 98/4
    7.5 brilliantly caught by Hopes! Bopara went for another impetuous crack over the top but got a leading, spiralling edge over the bowlers head and Hopes ran back a good eight or nine metres, taking the ball from over his head and diving in the process 41/1
    8.4 short, he goes on the pull and pulls it straight to square leg! Johnson strikes! Another good, low catch by James Hopes and England's bright start has disappeared 41/2
    14.5 lbw! Shah moves across his stumps and tries to whip across the line through midwicket, he misses and gets hit on the pad, the umpire takes a good look and eventually raises the finger, replays show that the ball may have been missing off stump, Shah's a bit unlucky there, but it looks so close when he moves across his stumps like that 62/3
    31.4 caught, Collingwood tries to hit down the ground but doesn't get enough elevation, he hits it straight to mid-on 132/5
    42.3 full toss, dug out straight to mid-off. And that's out! The crowd are practically silent, unable to believe just how limp that dismissal was 183/7
    35.4 there you go! Wright tries to blast the ball through cover but hits it hard and straight to Voges who takes a sharp low catch, England now don't have two specialist batsmen to utilise the final Powerplay 147/6

    43.3 that's so out. Swung in late on middle stump as Swann played around it, and that's hitting middle stump halfway up 188/8
    49.6 speared into his legs, Sidebottom tries to lift him for six but long-off holds a clean and comfortable catch at head height 228/9

    4.6 lbw! Plumb! Anderson seams the ball into Watson, who is caught on the crease, and it hits pad first before going on to bat, that's hit him dead centre and England have their early wicket 16/1
    13.3 got him! A little dibbly dobbly, off-cutting stodger, and it kept horrifically low to trap him in front of middle-and-off. No doubt about that 52/2
    47.2 caught! White flat-bats another short and wide ball straight to Sidebottom at mid-off, it was the slower one from Wright and White connected with the bottom of the bat, well played White, his century's taken Australia to the verge of a 3-0 lead 220/4

    43.4 he's not hanging on anymore! Clarke charges again and has a swing at the ball, Swann beats him in flight and turns the ball past the bat and on to the stumps, it's perhaps too little too late for England though 195/3
