England won by an innings and 83 runs
3,4,5,6,7 January 2011 (5-day match)
  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson c Strauss b Bresnan 45 182 127 5 0 35.43
44.3 83.8 mph, Watson is furious with himself and Bresnan is jumping and wooting in delight. All the hard work again comes to not enough for Watson. It was about a foot wide of off stump - the sort of line Watson has left alone all day - and Watson pushed hard in defence, it took the edge and went through gently to Strauss 105/2
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Collingwood b Tremlett 31 121 93 5 0 33.33
29.3 85.8 mph, The battle ends for Hughes! What a disappointment. Tremlett bangs it in on a length outside off, Hughes could have left it but instead fenced fatally and it nipped the edge and flew to Collingwood at third slip who took the chance above his head 55/1
View dismissal UT Khawaja c Trott b Swann 37 120 95 5 0 38.94
58.6 55.4 mph, Swann strikes in the first over of his spell! And it comes from a top-edged sweep, as Swann tossed it up on the stumps, Khawaja went for the shot and saw the ball lob up to be taken comfortably at square leg 134/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Anderson b Bresnan 4 25 21 0 0 19.04
50.6 86.6 mph, gone! Clarke has been caught at gully, cutting hard and in the air, really not a smart shot from the Australian captain and Anderson takes the catch 113/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Collingwood 33 113 92 2 0 35.86
79.6 75.6 mph, oh, Collingwood has struck! And it's Hussey who goes - what a very good ball from Paul Collingwood! He'd set up Hussey with several wider balls and this one swung back in, getting the inside edge on to the stumps 171/6
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Prior b Anderson 6 15 13 0 0 46.15
62.4 85.9 mph, big wicket for England! Anderson gets his man again. Poor shot really, the last ball swung in but this just held its line wide of off stump and Haddin, feet rooted to the spot, flashed a airy drive. Flicked the edge and Prior did the rest 143/5
View dismissal SPD Smith c Collingwood b Anderson 18 85 53 1 0 33.96
84.2 86.1 mph, Anderson strikes! Smith has gone for the big expansive off drive and has only managed to edge it to Collingwood, who takes a standard catch at third slip. Good outswing bowling, not clever batting 187/7
View dismissal MG Johnson b Bresnan 53 89 66 5 1 80.30
99.5 89.0 mph, that will be all, ends a brilliant counter-attacking innings from Johnson. Maybe he didn't need to play this but he was on a roll. Full from Bresnan around off stump and Johnson aimed a cow-corner swish and missed it, allowing it to clip the top of off stump 265/9
View dismissal PM Siddle c Strauss b Anderson 2 2 4 0 0 50.00
84.6 84.1 mph, Anderson has two in the over! Siddle has edged this to first slip, and Strauss takes a catch fairly low to the ground as the ball seemed to take forever to reach him 189/8
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus c †Prior b Anderson 34 88 58 3 1 58.62
106.1 78.6 mph, and that will be that. Strange dismissal, Anderson bangs it in very short and it gets very high, Hilfenhaus aims a vertical-batted tennis-smash and ends up with a fine edge through to Prior 280/10

  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* b Hilfenhaus 60 92 58 8 1 103.44
22.2 88.7 mph, the variation works! Strauss falls to the straight delivery. He's played all around a full ball that swung in and just offered to move away off the pitch. It was a loose shot to get out to but Strauss had played superbly 98/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Hussey b Watson 189 488 342 16 0 55.26
115.3 83.7 mph, Cook is gone at last! Oh, he's missed the chance for two double-centuries in the series, driving at Watson outside off and a thickish edge is taken low to the right of Hussey at gully. 380/6
View dismissal IJL Trott b Johnson 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
23.3 88.8 mph, Johnson strikes! Shades of Perth anyone!? Slung full across Trott who aimed a drive but could only inside edge onto his stumps. Johnson celebrates wildly, maybe that can spark him to life 99/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Beer b Johnson 36 87 70 4 0 51.42
43.2 87.6 mph, and there's a wicket! Beer is involved, as he's taken a good catch at deep backward square. Pietersen hooked a high bouncer and didn't keep it down, Beer runs in and almost misjudges his position, but takes it in front of him and sends Pietersen on his way 165/3
View dismissal JM Anderson b Siddle 7 41 35 1 0 20.00
53.3 88.7 mph, full and straight and bowled! Siddle does what so many bowlers haven't done in this Test - aims at the stumps and it nips away a touch off the seam, comprehensively beating Anderson, whose nightwatchman dreams must end here 181/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Hilfenhaus b Beer 13 68 41 0 0 31.70
68.3 55.1 mph, finally Beer has his first Test wicket and it's a sad end for Collingwood. He tried to break the shackles by hopping down the crease and aiming a smash down the ground, Beer saw his coming, threw it out wider and Collingwood had to try and fetch it. Came off a toe-end inside-edge and skewed high for mid-on to backpedal and claim the catch 226/5
View dismissal IR Bell c Clarke b Johnson 115 296 232 13 0 49.56
139.4 86.9 mph, that should quieten the Barmy Army! Ian Bell departs edging this behind to Clarke. Nothing dramatic in the delivery, just hung outside off stump and it kissed the edge and went through to low to Clarke at first slip. Fantastic innings from Bell but he had his fair share of luck. He leaves the ground to some cheers and plenty of boos as well 487/7
View dismissal MJ Prior c †Haddin b Hilfenhaus 118 237 130 11 1 90.76
170.6 87.2 mph, Prior's wonderful exhibition innings ends with Prior managing, somehow, to toe-end an attempted upper-cut to a shocking short and wide delivery. Oh dear... what have we here? Bowden has called for a review unsure if it's a no-ball!... After a few looks, confirmation that Hilfenhaus did indeed have a millimetre of his boot behind the line when he landed before sliding forward. All of which means Prior's wonderful maiden Ashes hundred comes to an end 609/9
View dismissal TT Bresnan c Clarke b Johnson 35 116 103 5 0 33.98
167.6 89.4 mph, Bresnan departs and Johnson has his fourth! Finally something for Australia to cheer. Just angling across the right hander, Bresnan popped forward to defend but it clipped the edge and went low to Clarke who held a good catch diving to his right 589/8

View dismissal SR Watson run out (†Prior/Pietersen) 38 51 40 7 0 95.00
12.4 Swann to Hughes, oh no, that's hideous. Watson has done it again. Hughes worked to midwicket for what should have been a long single, Watson turned and hared back for a second. Hughes sent him back but Watson had come a long way and had no chance as the throw came gently in from Pietersen, who made good ground to collect and Prior took off the bails. Complete waste, he'd been batting so well. 46/1
View dismissal PJ Hughes c †Prior b Bresnan 13 74 58 1 0 22.41
19.2 86.9 mph, brilliant delivery does for Hughes! The battle is over for him again. England pinned him back, starved him of anything to score off and Bresnan has dealt the killer blow with a fuller ball that bounced and zipped away off a length, Hughes' feet went nowhere and it took the edge, Prior leapt across first slip to take a smart catch 52/2
View dismissal UT Khawaja c †Prior b Anderson 21 89 73 2 0 28.76
37.3 87.8 mph, Anderson gets Khawaja! Really well bowled, he follows the bouncer with a fuller ball that pitches on line and moves sharply away from Khawaja, who chases one he should have left and edges behind 117/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Prior b Anderson 41 96 73 6 0 56.16
43.4 86.3 mph, this is masterful old-ball bowling from Anderson! Really skillful. Full and angling in before bending away late, just enough to flick the edge of Clarke's defensive push and Prior did the rest 124/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Pietersen b Bresnan 12 66 49 1 0 24.48
53.6 85.9 mph, that should be the killer blow! Hussey has gone. After all his hard work he's slapped a wide long-hop powerfully but straight to Pietersen at gully who held the rocketing chance solidly above his head. Wild celebrations from England, they're nearing their triumph 161/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Prior b Tremlett 30 51 41 3 0 73.17
56.3 84.5 mph, aggressive bowling gets Tremlett the wicket! This has been an excellent spell. Banged in just back of a length and it rears up at Haddin who got in a terrible position as he tried to pull out late of an attempted hook, finds a top edge that loops gently to Prior 171/6
