    29.3 oh there we go, Bell departs - McGrath perhaps held it back a touch, Bell trying to drive it over cover but his head fell back and the ball spooned to Hussey at extra cover 164/3
    3.2 gone! Again short from Tait, Vaughan went back and simply played it onto his stumps. 10/1

    5.6 gone! A mirror of Vaughan's dismissal; short of a length, Strauss back onto his stumps, he tried to cut it but with a rather ugly cross-bat and it's dragged on 24/2
    48.4 and he's gone this time, trying to lift Bracken for six but it's hit flat, and straight to Michael Clarke who needs not move a muscle, taking a very simple catch 240/7
    30.3 lovely delivery, top class that one: Collingwood looking for the reverse swing and playing away from his body on his back foot. There's just a thin edge - but one without doubt - and Gilchrist clings on 167/4
    35.3 a little touch of air and the ball tempts him outside his crease. It deviates past his outside edge, turning a touch and Gilchrist completes the move with some sharp glovework and Flintoff's on his way 179/5
    46.2 what a shot, but he's found Hussey at deep midwicket. It was an extraordinary flick, timing it to Hussey on the boundary who took an easy catch 230/6
    49.2 and he tries to replicate the shot before, smacking a full toss but straight down Hodge's throat at long-on who swallows it with ease 246/9
    48.6 another full toss, well, what a catch! That's a marvellous catch from Hodge, Mahmood slicing it to him at backward point who tumbled to his right and took a fine catch 240/8

    49.5 full, swinging into Anderson who completely misreads the line. McGrath roars his appeal and up goes the finger 247/10

    10.6 goddim! Held that one back a touch, Gilchrist was unsure whether to go forward or back; in the end, a rather nothing shot prodded a simple catch to Paul Collingwood at point 57/1
    19.1 bowled him! Or has he? Good line on off stump and just shaves the off stump. Collingwood roars an appeal - Hayden is so massive at the crease that it's quite hard to see the stumps. But Rudi confirms it with a nod of the head 89/2
    40.1 oh, an appeal there, hit the pad first, but then that gets forgotten as there's a run-out - the ball was dabbed down and Collingwood shied down the stumps from close range. Ponting was so out he was walking 201/3
