Anderson to Watson, OUT, chaos! Katich has gone and that's a horror start for Australia! Watson fiddled into the leg side with a hint of pad and set off for a single, Katich didn't respond until it was too late, Trott at midwicket had an age to line up the throw and he hit direct. Phew! Drama already!

SM Katich run out 0 (2m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Australia 0/1   SR Watson 0* (4b)   JM Anderson 0.4-0-0-0

Anderson to Ponting, OUT, Anderson strikes this time! Two in two! Ponting has gone! Classic outswing bowling, full, drew Ponting into that lunged drive he can play early in his innings, nicked the edge and flew low to Swann at second slip who gleefully took the chance

RT Ponting c Swann b Anderson 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 0/2   SR Watson 0* (4b)   JM Anderson 0.5-0-0-1

Anderson to Clarke, OUT, Two for Anderson! Clarke departs! Another perfect, pitched-up outswinger, Clarke has looked all at sea and walks into a nothing drive that flicks the edge and flies to Swann again

MJ Clarke c Swann b Anderson 2 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 2/3   SR Watson 0* (6b)   JM Anderson 1.1-0-1-2

Anderson to Watson, OUT, Anderson strikes! It's all happening again early in the session! Inviting length for a drive but the line is quite far outside off, Watson goes hard at it but the hint of outswing does the business and Pietersen takes a sharp catch in the gully and punches the air in delight

SR Watson c Pietersen b Anderson 51 (127m 94b 7x4 1x6) SR: 54.25

Australia 96/4   MEK Hussey 37* (71b 3x4)   JM Anderson 7.3-1-18-3

Finn to North, OUT, Finn strikes! North is caught behind! What was he trying to do here? A shot of some sort was on, there was width on offer, but he pushed limply at it - barely moving his feet - to send a thin edge through to Prior

MJ North c †Prior b Finn 26 (100m 93b 4x4 0x6) SR: 27.95

Australia 156/5   MEK Hussey 71* (135b 6x4)   ST Finn 7.4-0-43-1

Swann to Hussey, OUT, he's gone! Hussey is gone in the 90s, and Swann has finally spun one appreciably! Hussey was forward and across, leaning into a drive, and the ball took a thick edge to land in Collingwood's lap at slip

MEK Hussey c Collingwood b Swann 93 (299m 183b 8x4 0x6) SR: 50.81

Australia 207/6   BJ Haddin 27* (65b 1x4)   GP Swann 25.3-2-65-1

Swann to Harris, OUT, Huge appeal for lbw, Harris is totally done in the flight and the ball thumps into the back pad. He wasn't too far forward, the umpire raises the finger but Harris asks for the review. Has he hit that? Is it missing leg? Nope, he's given out!

RJ Harris lbw b Swann 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 207/7   BJ Haddin 27* (65b 1x4)   GP Swann 25.4-2-65-2

Swann to Haddin, OUT, Doherty, ball-watching, is run out! Haddin stepped across to the off side, nudging into the leg side for what should have been a single. It was always going to be tight, but he could've got home if he'd set off straight away. Haddin called for it as soon as he hit it, but Doherty wasn't sure and lingered at the non-striker's end. He'd played pretty well until that point, that's a shame

XJ Doherty run out 6 (25m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

Australia 226/8   BJ Haddin 40* (81b 3x4)   GP Swann 28.3-2-69-2

Anderson to Siddle, OUT, this time he's gone! Haddin's gamble doesn't come off as this is again clipped off the legs uppishly, but this time reaching Cook who pouches the chance to give Anderson his fourth

PM Siddle c Cook b Anderson 3 (24m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Australia 243/9   BJ Haddin 54* (90b 3x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 18.3-4-51-4

Broad to Haddin, OUT, All over now! Broad finally gets a deserved wicket as he digs in a short ball that Haddin top-edges it sails high down to Finn on the fine leg boundary who makes no mistake

BJ Haddin c Finn b Broad 56 (148m 95b 3x4 1x6) SR: 58.94

Australia 245/10   DE Bollinger 0* (3b)   SCJ Broad 18.5-6-39-1
