1.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, fuller ball just outside off, Cook steps back and defends, and slips over in the process - lucky he didn't slide back in to his stumps there

1.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, down leg side, Cook can't get anything on it

1.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, angled well across the left-hander, who leaves it alone

3.1

Siddle to Cook, no run, Siddle bangs it in at a mid 130kph region, Cook jumps back into his crease and defends outside off

3.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, outside off and no movement, Cook defends straight back down the pitch

3.3

Siddle to Cook, 1 run, Cook gets his first run, nudges a single through midwicket to a straight ball

3.4

Siddle to Trott, no run, bouncer time! It's on line, but Trott is watchful and ducks underneath it safely

3.5

Siddle to Trott, 1 no ball, Siddle continues to probe outside off, Trott lets it go through, and it's an overstep, says Aleem Dar

3.5

Siddle to Trott, no run, there's a big lbw shout, Dar says not out and Ricky Ponting wants a review. At first glance that looked like it may have been swinging down leg - and in fact Aleem Dar's decision has been upheld. Not out. The replay shows that would have clipped leg stump only - meaning it remains with the umpire's call.

3.6

England 10/1   PM Siddle 2-1-2-0

Siddle to Collingwood, no run, outside off and short of a length, Collingwood thinks about a pull and then lets it go

39.4

Siddle to Collingwood, FOUR, lovely way to get off the mark! That was a half-volley on off stump, Collingwood waited for it and then simply punched an on-drive back past the bowler, so well timed that it raced to the boundary

39.5

Siddle to Collingwood, OUT, Siddle strikes again! This time it's North who snaps up the catch at third slip, pretty low to the ground as well, so it's a good sharp take. Collingwood came forward and pushed outside off, the thick edge was enough to do him in

PD Collingwood c North b Siddle 4 (9m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

39.6

Siddle to Bell, no run, oh, lbw shout, and a massive one from Peter Siddle! Huge shout, and Siddle was utterly convinced. But Aleem Dar gives it not out, and Ponting is not interested in a review. He's right not to go for it - big inside edge.

41.1

Siddle to Bell, no run, Siddle's steaming in now, nips it back in from short of a length, Bell leaves it alone

England 129/4   PM Siddle 9-2-20-2

43.2

Siddle to Bell, no run, good line, perhaps a just short of the ideal length, Bell defends solidly

43.3

Siddle to Bell, FOUR, too short and too wide, Bell's stylish cut was uppish and cleared point by a distance, for a moment the bowler thought he was in with a chance

43.4

Siddle to Bell, no run, still a fraction short from Siddle, but the line and the intent is good, Bell very calm in defence

Siddle to Bell, no run, straighter, but still not straight enough to make Bell play

Tony Hill views the replay: it's a super yorker, hitting on the full on the toe, in line, hitting the stumps and no bat involved

Siddle to Anderson, no run, dropped! This crazy day won'y relent, Siddle won't relent, full, probing around off stump, Anderson prods nervously at it, gets the outside edge but Haddin diving to his left can't hold on. Tough chance but Siddle should have seven

England 229/8   PM Siddle 14-3-44-6

Siddle to Bell, no run, good delivery, wicket-taking full length and a touch of nibble off the wicket, Bell leaves alone
