    29.4 bowled'm! good length delivery, pitched outside the leg stump and swinging in, Hayden moves across looking to turn it away on the leg side but fails to make contact, ball crashes into the stumps. Flintoff with the breakthrough 96/2
    104 short ball banged in and slipping down the leg side, Ponting shapes to play to the on side and can only glove the ball to the keeper and up goes Billy Bowden's crooked finger! 354/9
    42.5 oh dear! thick inside edge onto the pad but umpire Bucknor upholds the lbw appeal - Martyn walks away shaking his head - Australia three down 129/3
    49.3 this one is pushed through a bit fuller and Katich once again plays at it, this time he is not lucky enough to miss it, off the edge to the slips cordon and Ashley Giles pouches the catch! Big wicket this 165/4
    57.4 And again Freddie Flintoff gets his man, angling in and swinging away late, Gilchrist edges straight to gully and Australia are in deep, deep trouble 182/5
    75.2 Colossal blunder from Clarke as Simon Jones bowls an inswinger on the off stump, Clarke just shoulders arms and watches in horror as the ball knocks the off stump out of the ground! That is a big wicket 263/6
    76.5 full and straight, Gillespie misses, having planted the front foot down the pitch, Hoggard hits. That is in front and the finger goes up 264/7
    98.2 full and outside the off, Warne nicks it, the ball flies to Strauss at second slip, he misses and the ball goes of his knee, Geraint Jones dives to his right and shows stunning reflexes to catch the ricochet! That is some catching from Jones 340/8
