    4.6 GONE! That was a horrible misjudgment from Joyce - tried to work a straighter delivery over midwicket, but instead chipped tamely to Glenn McGrath, who had to stoop forward as the ball plopped into his palms 14/2
    2.2 The slower ball does the trick! This one was fuller, and Loye was deceived as he shuffled across his stumps. A huge appeal is upheld by umpire Harper, but Hawkeye reckons that was sliding down leg ... 1/1

    32.6 there it is! huge breakthrough for Australia. Pinpoint yorker from Lee and Bell can't get his bat down in time. Hint of reverse swing and missed it by the width of his bat 148/4
    5.4 another one gone! This is getting rather chaotic for England now. A nothing sort of shot from Strauss, he shuffled across his stumps, tried to work to leg, and was trapped plumb in front. All too easy for Australia at the moment 15/3

    45.2 short, Flintoff swishes, and that's gone! It was a bit flat-footed from Flintoff, and a very, very thin graze through to Gilchrist! Watson has made the breakthrough! The end of an excellent 74-run stand, and is this a late glimmer for Australia? 222/5
    46.1 McGrath's made the difference! Inswinging low full-toss, an excellent ball in the circumstances, squirted out to point, and Clark's return to the bowler is pinpoint! Dalrymple was late setting off and was never in the frame ... 225/6
