    6.1 massive start for England! Beautiful delivery from round the wicket, tailing in late, beating a loose drive from Gilchrist and clipping the top of off stump! Perfect resumption from Plunkett, do England have the CB Series trophy within their grasp? 39/3
    3.1 slower ball, Hayden falls into the trap and drills it into Collingwood at short extra cover and he holds a good low catch. He didn't have to move to the side but it was low and was travelling 25/1
    4.2 GOT HIM! That's a massive breakthrough, and it's all credit to Plunkett there. Perfect line and length, just outside off and swinging away again, Ponting pushes with hard hands, and Andrew Strauss at slip takes a fine low catch! 33/2
    6.6 GONE! What an over! On the spot again, hint of movement, Clarke went for the drive, Nixon pouched the edge, Australia are all over the shop on a rain-juiced wicket! 40/4
    25.3 full length, Hodge drives well but uppishly and straight to Ian Bell on the 30-yard line at extra cover. He hurls the ball into the night sky as Hodge's head sags ... 139/8
    11.2 That's massive! A fraction wider, Hussey - who had played no shot at his last six balls from Flintoff - took a big swish, and Strauss at a lone slip made no mistake whatsoever! 63/5
    20.6 Oh my word. That is a brilliant catch. It was wide, Watson drove it uppishly to the left of backward point and Dalrymple leapt full length and took a one-handed catch four feet off the ground. There were gasps from the crowd as that was replayed. 109/6
    24.4 Hogg tries to repeat the shot but Collingwood bowled that wider and he had to reach for it ... he didn't get hold of it and it looped to Flintoff at wide midwicket and he took an easy catch 132/7
