    6.2 Anderson takes a very good running catch at long leg. It was banged in slightly short of length, on the middle stump line, Gilchrist goes for the pull, ends up skying it high and Anderson runs to his right and holds on to a smart catch. 26/1
    10.5 Oh ho! Hayden falls. Again that walk down the track, this time its fatal. Lewis drags back the length and hurls it at the body, Hayden pulls it to long leg into the waiting palms of Anderson. Three down! Game on? 35/3
    7.3 Hodge's one-day travails continue. Full and on the middle and leg, it holds its line a touch, Hodge looks to turn it the on side, gets a outer edge and it flies to point where Darlymple takes it right in front of his face. Australia lose their second wicket. No Ricky Ponting today. Under slight pressure 30/2
    26.2 and he strikes! good length and drifting down the leg side, Clarke follows the ball in a effort to clip it down to fine leg but fails to make solid contact. Not sure if there was any wood involved, hard to say from here. The keeper and the bowler were convinced and so was the umpire. That's the wicket they were looking for - Australia five down. 93/5
    12.5 Revenge! Lewis sends Symonds packing. Again full and outside off stump line, looked pretty similar to the previous delivery but a tad wider, and Symonds throws his bat at it and gets a thick edge. Nixon goes airborne and takes it in front of first slip. Surely, hopefully for all of you out there desperate for a contest, game on! 48/4

    29.4 Anderson strikes back for England and the see-saw battle continues. Good length delivery and this one nipped back in off the deck. White plays across the line and the ball thuds into the pad. Loud shout and on this occasion the umpire adjudicates in favour of the bowler. 108/6
