14.1

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, Johnson slings one full and straight, Cook prods to cover and scampers off for one to bring Pietersen on strike

14.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, big roar from the crowd as Johnson was running in, in the end he gives Pietersen a sighter outside off stump

14.3

Johnson to Pietersen, 3 runs, Pietersen is away, huge relief for him as always, and a relief for his partner too, just back of a length and he stood tall and flicked to midwicket

14.4

Johnson to Cook, no run, sharp from Johnson, shortish and spearing into Cook's chest, played comfortably into the midwicket region

14.5

Johnson to Cook, FOUR, bang! Pretty authoritative that from Cook. Half-tracker from Johnson probably deserved it but Cook's pull went well in front of midwicket to the boundary in a flash

14.6

Johnson to Cook, no run, good line but perhaps still a touch short, Cook's weakness is full around off stump, here he can sit on the back foot and block

England 49/2   MG Johnson 3-0-11-0
25.1

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, decent pace, decent line too, but Cook is solid, getting back to work to leg for a single

25.2

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, once again there is decent carry, but the line is a touch too far down leg and allows Pietersen to work towards square leg

25.3

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, ooh! Close here, full and Cook falls over towards the off side as he flicks this, one bounce, to short midwicket, the man is placed there for the shot, good work from Ponting

25.4

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, slung wide across Pietersen, who leaves alone

25.5

Johnson to Pietersen, FOUR, Pietersen falls over and ends up in a heap, but he managed to flick very powerfully into the midwicket region as he played the shot, Pietersen ended up on his face, but the timing was good enough to collect four

25.6

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, confident finish to the session from Pietersen, getting back, standing tall and punching firmly to cover.

England 86/2   MG Johnson 4-0-18-0
27.1

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, defended back down the pitch

27.2

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, bouncer, leg side, and it's hooked around the corner to fine leg along the ground

27.3

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, bad ball, down leg side and Cook simply flicks it off his pads to fine leg

27.4

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, on the back foot, Pietersen defends

27.5

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, again that's too short and leg-sidey, Pietersen has no trouble helping that to fine leg

Johnson to Cook, FOUR, really good placement from Cook, angled down leg side and he's clipped it between the two men out on the leg side boundary, through square for four

England 98/2   MG Johnson 5-0-25-0
29.1

Johnson to Cook, no run, better ball, just outside off stump, Cook defends

29.2

Johnson to Cook, no run, ah, but Johnson gets an edge now, though it's into the ground and never in danger of being taken at gully

29.3

Johnson to Cook, no run, left alone outside off, no hints of swing for Mitch

29.4

Johnson to Cook, no run, probing outside off again, Cook just lets it sail by

29.5

Johnson to Cook, no run, same again, well wide of off and not making Cook play

29.6

Johnson to Cook, no run, much straighter ball, looking for an lbw, Cook simply drives it to mid-on

England 102/2   MG Johnson 6-1-25-0
31.1

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, pushed across Pietersen, who leaves it alone

31.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, banged in short of a length, Pietersen defends safely at waist height, which is an indication that there's not a great deal of bounce in this pitch

31.3

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, crunched away off the back foot, can't beat the man at cover

31.4

Johnson to Pietersen, FOUR, bad ball and Pietersen latches on to this, a cracking cover drive to a low full toss wide of off, Johnson was looking to entice the drive but clearly not with a full toss

31.5

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, that's the ball he wanted to bowl, well wide of off and pitches on a fullish length, but this time KP is not tempted

31.6

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, on the pads, he can't get that one away

England 107/2   MG Johnson 7-1-29-0
33.1

Johnson to Pietersen, FOUR, that's an aggressive shot from Pietersen! Banged in short well outside off, KP launches an aerial pull over midwicket, it got a little top-edgey but there was nobody out on the boundary, so he was perfectly safe

33.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, defended this time by KP

33.3

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, angles it across Pietersen, who drives straight to the man at mid-on

33.4

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, pushed across the right-hander, Pietersen leaves it

33.5

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, edged and safe! Ah, Pietersen's patience for those deliveries pushed across him has worn out, he drives hard and in the air, but it bounces safely short of Doherty at point

33.6

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, left alone this time

England 111/2   MG Johnson 8-1-33-0

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, probing outside off, Pietersen defends

35.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, straighter ball, Pietersen clips it to square leg

35.3

Johnson to Pietersen, 2 runs, slower ball - we haven't seen many of them from any of the bowlers today - and it's flicked through square leg for a couple of runs

35.4

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, trying to tease Pietersen outside off, but he lets it go

35.5

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, again it's pushed across, again KP leaves it alone

35.6

Johnson to Pietersen, FOUR, magnificent cover drive! The men went back on the on-side boundary, trying to convince Pietersen it would be short. It was fullish outside off, and a handsome drive found the gap, racing away to the boundary

England 117/2   MG Johnson 9-1-39-0
45.1

Johnson to Cook, no run, starts with a slinger outside off, far too short really, Cook has nothing to do with it

45.2

Johnson to Cook, no run, much better length and line from Johnson this time, forces Cook to defend off the front foot

45.3

Johnson to Cook, 3 runs, typically, unfussy work from Cook, gets a fullish ball on his legs and clips it firmly, wide of mid-on for three, edging up towards a half-century

45.4

Johnson to Bell, no run, decent pace from Johnson, but an indecent line - outside off - and length - too short

45.5

Johnson to Bell, no run, ah, much better, slower ball by the looks of things, but drawing Bell forward to defend

45.6

Johnson to Bell, 1 run, banged in short, Bell rocks back and pulls, more a controlled pull than anything expansive, picks up a single to deep square

England 146/4   MG Johnson 10-1-43-0
47.1

Johnson to Bell, no run, very low arm from Johnson here, but the delivery is a good one, straight and on a length and defended

47.2

Johnson to Bell, no run, now then! What's this we have a referral! It was a length delivery that zipped past, very close to Bell's outside edge, there was a sound but no great appeal from Australia first of all, Katich at short leg was convinced and demanded the UDRS, but HotSpot shows nothing and the decision stands

47.3

Johnson to Bell, no run, good pace on this and Bell gets back in a hurry to drop into the leg side with soft hands

47.4

Johnson to Bell, no run, outside off stump and left all alone by Bell

47.5

Johnson to Bell, no run, Johnson tempts with a full, slower ball outside off stump but Bell resists

47.6

Johnson to Bell, no run, quickest delivery of the day I think, good line too, straight and Bell rocks back to defend with the fullest of faces

England 151/4   MG Johnson 11-2-43-0
49.1

Johnson to Bell, no run, Johnson seems to have found some rhythm here, better pace but far enough outside off for Bell to leave alone

49.2

Johnson to Bell, 2 runs, Johnson is doing everything, hurls it down swiftly and then hares off after the ball to collect Bell's firm push through mid-on

49.3

Johnson to Bell, no run, lovely delivery, that's the one for Johnson, full enough to leave Bell stuck on the crease, honing in around off stump, Bell defends uneasily

49.4

Johnson to Bell, no run, Bell is judging his off stump very well at the moment, leaving anything he doesn't need to play

49.5

Johnson to Bell, no run, oops, the first real clanger from MJ, slung down the leg side, but Haddin collects and no harm done

49.6

Johnson to Bell, 1 run, back of a length and Bell drops it with the softest hands into the off side and scampers off for a single

England 158/4   MG Johnson 12-2-46-0
68.1

Johnson to Swann, no run, ooh, swing and a miss outside off stump! Swann flashes a drive but the ball skims past the edge

68.2

Johnson to Swann, no run, good length and line again from MJ, Swann slips over a touch, as many batsmen have today, as he aims a leg-side flick

68.3

Johnson to Swann, FOUR, rancid delivery, Swann has an equally ugly swipe at it, upper cutting with a bit more up than cut, but effective enough to get four over the slips. Swann will play his shots here, which is exactly what he should do

68.4

Johnson to Swann, 3 runs, too much width from Johnson and Swann flays his arms at it, timing it not perfectly but clearing the infield and collecting three

68.5

Johnson to Bell, FOUR, ah, that is dreamy, Bell has absolutely creamed that through extra cover, timed perfectly, just opening the face to beat cover, it flew to the boundary. He's on top of his game here

68.6

Johnson to Bell, no run, play and a miss! Bell looking to come at Johnson, edging down the wicket and aiming an expansive drive, doesn't connect

England 226/7   MG Johnson 13-2-57-0
70.1

Johnson to Bell, no run, not much Bell can do with that, good length and line and carefully blocked

70.2

Johnson to Bell, no run, haha! Marvellous stuff, Bell skips down the wicket and has an almighty heave-ho, missing the ball and getting a hilarious stare from the mustachioed MJ

70.3

Johnson to Bell, no run, quieter this time, on a length and line and defended watchfully

70.4

Johnson to Bell, FOUR, lovely shot here, Johnson goes full and Bell creams a straight drive with perfect timing, beats mid-off and races to the rope

70.5

Johnson to Bell, 1 run, slashed wide of the slips! Bell gets the single he wants, not quite how he wanted it but it was well wide of the cordon and third man fields, Johnson has one ball at Anderson

70.6

Johnson to Anderson, no run, full, straight and blocked. Anderson does his job for the over, keeping out a good delivery and it's over to Bell to try and resist the Siddle storm

England 234/8   MG Johnson 14-2-62-0

Johnson to Bell, 2 runs, Johnson slings down a short ball that Bell is back and pulling in a flash, he immediately called two and got them as deep midwicket ran round to field on the boundary

72.2

Johnson to Bell, no run, some width outside off stump, Bell steers to deep point but rejects the single, drawing a few boos from the pumped-up Aussie crowd

72.3

Johnson to Bell, 2 runs, this is some innings from Bell, driven hard into a gap wide of extra cover, straight away he called for two and got them

72.4

Johnson to Bell, no run, better delivery from Johnson here, tighter on off stump, Bell rocks forward to defend comfortably

72.5

Johnson to Bell, no run, gets the width he would have wanted but probably tried to overhit the ball a touch, picked out cover with his drive

72.6

Johnson to Bell, no run, good finish from Johnson, giving Bell no chance to get either the single or a boundary, banged in short and zipping past Bell's ear as he swayed inside the line. Anderson has to face Siddle now
