  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Finn 13 72 40 1 0 32.50
16.1 83.2 mph, Finn gets Watson! What a terrific yorker! Straight and fast, Watson is late with the bat and it's ball on toe before ball on bat, Billy Doctrove gives it out. Rather forlornly, Watson wants a review, but that remains out! Umpire's call on whether it hit in line, it's crashing into off stump, so Finn gets his man. 36/4
View dismissal PJ Hughes b Tremlett 2 10 6 0 0 33.33
1.6 84.9 mph, gone! Tremlett strikes, early breakthrough. Brilliant bowling. Went fuller at the stumps, Hughes tried to play it to the leg side and is beaten all ends up. Perfect comeback for Tremlett, but not for Hughes 2/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Collingwood b Anderson 12 11 10 3 0 120.00
4.5 83.2 mph, GONE! My oh my. What a catch. This makes up for Strauss's drop. Paul Collingwood has pulled off a ripper at third slip. Anderson gets some extra bounce which takes the shoulder of Ponting's bat as he pushed forward hard and Collingwood dives high to his right to pluck the ball out of the air. 17/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c †Prior b Tremlett 4 13 10 1 0 40.00
7.6 82.1 mph, gone! And another. Australia in real trouble. That was a bit weak from Clarke as he pokes outside off stump at a ball that bounces a little, giving a simple edge through to Matt Prior for his 100th catch in Test cricket 28/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †Prior b Swann 61 139 104 9 1 58.65
40.4 52.5 mph, Swann strikes! What a breakthrough as Hussey gets a thin edge behind and Prior takes the catch. Initially the umpire gives it not out, but Prior races down the pitch to Swann and signals for the review himself - Strauss then officially asks for the review, Hot Spot shows a clear edge there, and Hussey is gone! 137/6
View dismissal SPD Smith c Strauss b Tremlett 7 46 37 0 0 18.91
27.3 84.1 mph, gone! Tremlett strikes again, pitched fuller outside off stump which brought Smith onto the front foot and a comfortable edge flies to Strauss at first slip. Brilliant bowling from Tremlett, short followed by full, and he's having a day to remember 69/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Swann b Anderson 53 119 80 6 1 66.25
57.3 85.9 mph, Anderson strikes but it looks a horrid shot. If it came off we'd be cheering but as it is, this is a gift. Well outside off stump at a drive-me length, Haddin threw his arms at it, leaning back, head up, and off the edge it went high to Swann at second slip clasped onto a very sharp catch, jumping high above his head and tumbling back as he held on 189/7
View dismissal MG Johnson c Anderson b Finn 62 117 93 8 1 66.66
70.3 79.9 mph, gone! Finn gets the breakthrough with another shortish one tempting Johnson to pull, but his shot flies straight to Anderson at square leg, where he takes a simple catch. 233/9
View dismissal RJ Harris b Anderson 3 8 5 0 0 60.00
59.5 86.2 mph, and another one goes, Harris's brief foray into runscoring ends with an excellent yorker, squeezes under the bat and knocks back off stump. Anderson celebrates in Johnson's direction, telling him to "shhh" 201/8

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Haddin b Harris 52 125 102 8 0 50.98
31.3 82.6 mph, Harris joins the party! Strauss is gone! An edge behind and Haddin takes the straightforward catch! That was just a good line and length - across Strauss and with the swing that has been around he felt he had to play, this one if anything just straightened but didn't really swing 94/4
View dismissal AN Cook c Hussey b Johnson 32 91 63 3 1 50.79
24.1 86.1 mph, gone! There's the breakthrough for Australia and it goes to Johnson. Full outside off, brings Cook into the drive and it flies low to gully where Hussey picks up a good low catch. 78/1
View dismissal IJL Trott lbw b Johnson 4 7 8 1 0 50.00
26.3 86.2 mph, gone! Johnson strikes again. Full on off stump, hint of swing back into the right hander and that's plumb. Trott driving and is beaten by the movement, superb stuff from Mitchell. 82/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Johnson 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
26.6 85.4 mph, another one! Pietersen is gone for a duck! Beautiful bowling from Johnson as this one swings back down the line, Marais Erasmus gives it lbw and Pietersen wants a review. The bat was nowhere near it, and at first glance it looked like it could have slid down leg but that's a great decision - the replays show that crashing right into leg stump. 82/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Johnson 5 25 17 0 0 29.41
32.3 87.3 mph, another lbw shout as this one swings in, but it's given not out. Ponting asks for a review, but that looked high and off-side. But wait, the replays show that shape was enough to straighten it, and it's hitting the off stump cleanly! Decision overturned! Collingwood's gone! 98/5
View dismissal IR Bell c Ponting b Harris 53 133 90 6 0 58.88
61.1 86.2 mph, Harris gets his third! And it's Ian Bell! It was fullish and well wide of off, swinging away from Bell, who went for the drive but saw his edge fly to Ponting at a wide second slip. That was a sharp catch taken at head height, that ball was travelling 186/8
View dismissal MJ Prior b Siddle 12 62 42 1 0 28.57
46.4 88.7 mph, gone! Well, the short ball has worked in the end but probably not quite as they expected. The ball after getting hit, Prior moves across his stumps to work it away, but it deflects off his body, back down into his gloves, then down into leg stump to knock off the bail. 145/6
View dismissal GP Swann c †Haddin b Harris 11 45 31 1 0 35.48
57.1 86.4 mph, Harris strikes! Swann is gone, prodding forward and getting an edge through to Haddin, it was another good ball that just straightened enough, well deserved by Harris 181/7
View dismissal CT Tremlett b Johnson 2 21 14 0 0 14.28
62.1 86.6 mph, gone! Johnson gets five, with a cracking inswinger that takes the off stump out of the ground. Really well bowled and Johnson has deserved that haul - now, can Australia finish England off before tea? 186/9

View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Tremlett 95 221 174 11 0 54.59
50.2 81.8 mph, Watson's gone! Tremlett has got him for 95 with a straight ball that strikes him on the pad in front, Marais Erasmus gives it out and Watson wants the review. There's no bat involved, and it was clearly hitting the stumps. He's missed his hundred, oh, Shane! 177/4
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Collingwood b Finn 12 51 31 1 0 38.70
12.2 85.4 mph, ah, the change of length does the trick, having set up Hughes with the bouncer, Hughes is late getting forward to a fuller ball and it clips the outside edge and flew to third slip where Collingwood held on 31/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Prior b Finn 1 17 9 0 0 11.11
16.1 81.6 mph, what have we here? Massive appeal from England as it goes down the leg side close to Ponting's bat and gloves. Prior was sure but it was given not out and England reviewed, the replay showed it flicked the glove and edge and Ponting has to go 34/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke b Tremlett 20 21 18 4 0 111.11
20.4 79.9 mph, gone! Clarke's confidence brings his downfall as Tremlett bangs it in short and Clarke gets the inside edge onto his stumps, trying to force it through cover 64/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Swann b Tremlett 116 296 172 15 0 67.44
85.6 Tremlett has his fifth, as England eventually are rewarded for bouncing Hussey, but not after a magnificent innings. His 116 could separate the teams. It was short and pulled very hard to Swann at deep midwicket who clung on 309/10
View dismissal SPD Smith c †Prior b Tremlett 36 83 62 2 0 58.06
68.4 81.9 mph, gone, the short ball plan works to Smith. Down the leg side and it glances the glove down the leg side through to Prior as Smith pushes away from his body 252/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin b Tremlett 7 17 10 0 1 70.00
72.3 81.7 mph, Haddin is gone this time! And Tremlett gets his fourth wicket! He goes a bit fuller and nips the ball in a fraction off the seam, Haddin is in two minds as to going forward or back, just gets an inside edge onto his pad and back onto the stumps 271/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c Bell b Collingwood 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
73.3 73.8 mph, Collingwood strikes! England are back in this big time! Johnson has gone for the cover drive but the lack of pace did him and he didn't quite commit to the stroke, just prodding it to Bell at short cover 276/7
View dismissal RJ Harris c Bell b Finn 1 14 7 0 0 14.28

6.1 74.8 mph, Australia's first strike! The big wicket of Cook, Harris was full and Cook fatally went back, touch of nip back meant the batsman couldn't adjust and that is an enormous blow. Cook thought about reviewing but after a chat with his captain, he couldn't find a reason to 23/1
