View dismissal AJ Strauss c Hodge b McGrath 18 56 37 0 1 48.64
12.4 Hodge you beauty! short of a good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, innocuous delivery. Strauss having failed playing the drive and the flick goes for the pull and the ball flies away towards midwicket. Hodge there quickly moves across to his left and pulls off a stunner, diving across to his left. He was at full stretch and in the air when he took it and to make it even better he took it with both hands. Amazing effort. 56/2
View dismissal MB Loye c Hayden b Bracken 36 49 36 5 1 100.00
11.1 And Bracken nails Mal Loye after a run a ball 36. short of a good length delivery, pitched on middle and off and shaping away from the right-hander. Loye plays at it late, more of an afterthought. Ball clips the edge and goes straight to Hayden at first slip. 52/1
View dismissal IR Bell run out (White) 10 32 15 1 0 66.66
17.1 from Johnson, goodness me! good length delivery outside the off stump and Bell runs it away towards gully and then came the mix-up. Total mess! Both batsmen meet in the middle and then Bell hesitates quite a bit. He is in two minds whether to run or go back to his end. By this time White had stopped the ball diving across to his left and he flicked the ball lying down all along the ground. Bell tries to run back to the striker's end but White's back-handed flick hits the stumps bang. Bell was nowhere in the picture. 70/4
View dismissal EC Joyce c †Gilchrist b McGrath 5 19 15 1 0 33.33
16.6 and McGrath ends Joyce's uneasy stay at the crease with a beauty! short of a good length delivery, this one hit the deck and shaped back in. Joyce was clueless and in the end it was a nothing poke, ball clipped the inside edge and went straight to Gilchrist behind the stumps. That's the end of that and we are back to square one. 70/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Gilchrist b McGrath 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
18.1 and the party continue! short of a good length, pitched right in the channel outside the off stump and shaping away late - special delivery for poor mortals and a McGrath usual. Collingwood had no option but to play at it and the edge went straight to Gilchrist behind the stumps. England five down and they are melting like butter on a hot pan. 71/5
View dismissal A Flintoff* c Hodge b Lee 27 65 38 3 0 71.05
30.6 Hodge pulls off another blinder and England's slump continues! good length and cutting in. Flintoff slogs it away towards midwicket. Hodge in the deep hurtles across to his left, drives across at the last movement and takes it with both hands. Fantastic bit of fielding. England seven down - just three more to go. 118/7
View dismissal PA Nixon c Hayden b Lee 9 29 23 1 0 39.13
24.6 short of a good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and angling away. Nixon stays back and pokes at it, playing well away from his body. Thick edge and the ball goes straight to Hayden at first slip who snaffles it as clean as a whistle. England six down. 93/6
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple c Johnson b White 31 70 51 2 0 60.78
41.6 There you go. England shot out for 155. The awful summer continues. Short of length, outside the off stump, Dalrymple could have pulled it anywhere but he decides this is the time to end the misery and hits it right at the throat of long on. 155/10
View dismissal CT Tremlett c †Gilchrist b Bracken 8 20 19 1 0 42.10
36.5 Bracken strikes! well disguised slower delivery. Tremlett tries to open the face of the bat and run it down to third man but fails miserably. Just the thinnest of edges and the ball flies straight to Gilchrist behind the stumps. Eight down - two more go. 141/8
View dismissal J Lewis c & b Bracken 1 6 4 0 0 25.00
38.5 got'm! and once again it's the slower ball that does the trick. Low fulltoss on the middle and off stump line. Lewis jams his bat down, probably he thought it was the yorker. Ball hits the bottom part of the bat and spoons up straight back to the bowler. 145/9

View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Anderson b Lewis 8 24 16 1 0 50.00
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
View dismissal ML Hayden c Anderson b Lewis 19 45 37 2 0 51.35
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
View dismissal BJ Hodge c Dalrymple b Anderson 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
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
View dismissal MJ Clarke c †Nixon b Lewis 36 91 62 3 0 58.06
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
View dismissal A Symonds c †Nixon b Lewis 4 11 6 1 0 66.66
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

View dismissal CL White lbw b Anderson 5 19 9 1 0 55.55
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
