9.1

Johnson to Strauss, no run, outside off stump to start with at 134kph, Strauss leaves it

9.2

Johnson to Strauss, no run, there's some swing away from Strauss, which isn't Johnson's natural swing - but it was much too wide of off

9.3

Johnson to Strauss, no run, ah, good ball - fullish and swinging away from Strauss, who gets it away to point

9.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, straighter ball now and Strauss gets it to square leg

9.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, bouncer, and it's quick at 139kph, but Strauss ducks it easily

9.6

Johnson to Strauss, FOUR, cut hard and just wide of gully! That was hit uppishly but timed well, and Hussey at gully wasn't ever going to catch that, a very good shot, if a tad more aerial than Strauss intended

England 25/0   MG Johnson 1-0-4-0
11.1

Johnson to Strauss, no run, fullish and angling in to the off stump of Strauss, who pushes to mid on

11.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, good carry through to Haddin as Johnson probes outside off at 141kph, Strauss leaves it

11.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, good delivery, fullish and straight, a hint of swing again but Strauss is good enough to work that to midwicket

18.3

Johnson to Strauss, no run, on off stump, Strauss is firmly behind it and pushes up to mid-off...good line from Johnson

18.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, his first bouncer of the day, it's very short and flies comfortably over Strauss's head as he ducks underneath

18.5

Johnson to Strauss, FOUR, oh, that's a lovely shot, a classic on-drive from off stump and the ball races down the ground. A sign of a batsman in form

18.6

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, stays very full on off stump, Strauss works it just to the left of mid-on and keeps the strike

England 59/0   MG Johnson 3-1-9-0

20.2

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, goes straighter this time and it's neatly worked away into midwicket

20.3

20.4

Johnson to Strauss, 2 runs, on leg stump and worked away through square leg, this time there's good running to make it into a couple

20.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, full outside off with a hint of shape away from Strauss as he leaves

20.6

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, pushed outside leg stump and it's flicked away down to long leg...not a good delivery

22.1

Johnson to Cook, no run, on off stump, Cook waits on the back foot and defends to mid-off

England 78/1   MG Johnson 6-2-17-1
26.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, good bouncer from Johnson, Trott plays a half-hearted pull and is beaten for pace. There's an appeal from Haddin, but it didn't touch the glove or top edge

26.2

Johnson to Trott, FOUR, he's off the mark, a very full ball is squeezed into the ground and beats Clarke at third slip who didn't make the best of efforts to stop that

26.3

Johnson to Trott, OUT, 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.

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

26.5

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, good line, just straightening down the off stump and Pietersen defends

26.6

Johnson to Pietersen, OUT, 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.

KP Pietersen lbw b Johnson 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 82/3   MG Johnson 7-2-21-3
28.1

30.3

Johnson to Collingwood, 1 run, banged in at the hips, it's nudged away through square leg

Johnson to Strauss, no run, shorter and a bit of width, Strauss cuts straight to point

30.6

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, this one doesn't swing, and Strauss glances a single to fine leg

32.1

Johnson to Collingwood, no run, cracking bouncer! Dead straight, and quick, and Collingwood jumps, trying to fend, and then tries to get out of the way - just managing to do so. That really tested him

32.2

Johnson to Collingwood, no run, pushed away to point

32.3

Johnson to Collingwood, OUT, 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!
