    8.1 Gilchrist shapes to pepper the Bill O'Reilly stand again but gets an inside edge into his off stump 97/2
    3.2 Hayden onto the front foot as everything Anderson has bowled so far has been pitched up, but this one isn't and his slash comes off the splice and loops to Dalrymple at mid-off 28/1
    13.1 down on one knee and tries to flick that high over square leg where Lewis makes no mistake this time, having dropped him on 16. Lewis shows the ball to the crowd... because he can 149/4
    10.2 Hussey comes right down the track looking for the same shot this time - the crack over midwicket - and his stumps are taken by Nixon, with some sharp work 123/3

    14.2 short, just outside off and that's some sharp work in close from Collingwood, winged right back in over the stumps and Nixon who does the rest 155/5

    0.4 Joyce takes a pace down the track, looks to loft it over long-on but it goes high to Hussey who makes 20 yards to his left from mid-on to hold the steepler 3/1
    6.2 Vaughan aims a reverse sweep and misses, "that's out" yells the entire commentary team and the umpire agrees. Vaughan looks miffed and seems to suggest he got an edge 54/4
    1.2 dug in, Flintoff top edges the hook and White holds a simple catch at square leg. A dream, start for Harwood and another nightmare on the way for England so it seems 5/2
    4.1 turned behind square on the off, Pietersen calls for a second and Harwood scores a direct hit to leave him a foot short ... had he not hit then Pietersen would have made it. The Australians think they have their man straight away - plenty of high tens - and the third umpire confirms their optimism 32/3

    11.4 straight and a full toss cleans up Bell's stumps, clattering into off stick 78/6
    9.3 launched high into the leg side where White waits patiently a yard inside the rope at deep midwicket and pouches the ball with nonchalant ease 68/5

    17.5 very, very plumb. Reverse sweep, and that one keeps low. Dalrymple isn't amused, but he's out - plum duff, really 127/7
    18.3 comes down the wicket, and Lewis takes a big whoosh at that one, gets a fine edge and Gilchrist takes it cleanly, whipping the bails off for good measure 129/8
    19.3 Bouncer, Panesar misses out and tries to get the bye after Nixon's call for the strike, but he's run out easily at the non-striker's end 138/9
