Tremlett to Hughes, no run, good line on off stump, touch of extra bounce and it's defended square on the off side

1.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, short and outside off, rises gently through to Prior as Hughes drops his hands

1.3

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, that's a good short one, makes Hughes goes down on his knees and sway out the line but he had plenty of time to do so

1.4

Tremlett to Hughes, 2 runs, well bowled by Tremlett, squares Hughes up on off stump and the edge squeezes through gully towards third man to get Australia underway

1.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, ooh, that's a cracker, fuller on off stump and Hughes is late as he plays and is beaten

1.6

Tremlett to Hughes, OUT, gone! Tremlett strikes, early breakthrough. Brilliant bowling. Went fuller at the stumps, Hughes tried to play it to the leg side and is beaten all ends up. Perfect comeback for Tremlett, but not for Hughes

3.1

3.2

Tremlett to Ponting, no run, outside off and he doesn't need to play at that

Tremlett to Ponting, FOUR, oh boy! England have a packed slip cordon but this flies between third slip and gully as it climbs and takes the shoulder of the bat...England can't believe it

3.4

Tremlett to Ponting, no run, and he's in action straight away as Ponting plays off the back foot and it goes towards the slips

3.5

Tremlett to Ponting, FOUR, dragged down short, Ponting latches on with a pull shot and despite not quite timing it there's enough power for it to dribble into the midwicket rope...that will make him feel better

3.6

Tremlett to Ponting, no run, good stuff from Tremlett, this one climbs quickly off the surface and Ponting has to be quick to get his bat out of the line. This is promising from Tremlett

7.5

Tremlett to Clarke, no run, full outside off, a little shape away from the right hander and it's left alone

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, good ball, jags back off a good length and strikes Hussey high on the back leg as he leaves the ball knowing it will bounce

Tremlett to Watson, no run, gee, that was close, outside off and shapes back into Watson who lets it go

Tremlett to Watson, no run, well bowled, banged in from Tremlett and Watson fends it off just in front of Cook at short leg. Climbed off a good length and caught Watson by surprise

23.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, angling in to Hussey, who leaves it

23.4

25.4

Australia 65/4   CT Tremlett 9-2-19-2

Tremlett to Smith, no run, back of a length and defended into the leg side

27.3

Tremlett to Smith, OUT, gone! Tremlett strikes again, pitched fuller outside off stump which brought Smith onto the front foot and a comfortable edge flies to Strauss at first slip. Brilliant bowling from Tremlett, short followed by full, and he's having a day to remember

SPD Smith c Strauss b Tremlett 7 (46m 37b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.91

27.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, good start, banged in short and rises past Haddin but he pulled the bat nicely inside the line

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, back of a length, Haddin squared up a little as he defends to the off side...an superb over from Tremlett

Australia 69/5   CT Tremlett 10-2-21-3

29.1

Tremlett to Haddin, 3 runs, drifts a little straight and Haddin is able to push this firmly through the vacant on-side field...no one beyond short leg in front of square

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, short ball outside off and Hussey watches it carefully

29.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, fuller outside off stump, Hussey plants his front foot forward then leaves alone

31.2

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, pitched up on middle and leg, pushed down to mid-on

31.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, strangled shout from England as this takes the pad but it's a)pitching outside leg, b) hit the bat and c) was going over. So not out.

31.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, pushed way down the leg side, that just went wrong from Tremlett

31.5

33.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, full on middle and worked down to mid-on...England still think Hussey is an lbw candidate

33.4

Tremlett to Hussey, 1 run, worked off the pads down to long leg

33.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, goes back in the crease and defends very correctly to mid-on

33.6

Tremlett to Haddin, 2 runs, almost a run out, and probably should have been. Haddin clips it off his pads towards deep square and decides he wants a second. There was hesitation and the throw from Trott wasn't on target, leaving Prior too much to do even though his flick hit the stumps. Replays show Haddin was in by a few inches

35.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, responds with a very short bouncer, close to a wide but it's not called

35.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, extra bounce causes problems again, takes the shoulder of the part but doesn't carry towards gully

35.6

Australia 99/5   CT Tremlett 14-2-34-3

45.1

45.2

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, on the hips and Johnson works it into the ground to short leg

45.3

45.4

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, clipped off the pads to fine leg, Johnson gets a single

45.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, ah, another lovely delivery that beats the outside edge, this one angles in and then straightens

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, angled across Johnson, who punches to point

47.5

49.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, again Haddin gets in behind it with a straight bat

49.6

Tremlett to Haddin, 1 run, shouts of 'caaaaatch' as Haddin hooks, but that bounces safely short of fine leg

Australia 170/6   CT Tremlett 17-2-41-3

51.1

Tremlett to Haddin, no run

51.2

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, short of a good length on middle, Haddin rocks back and jabs it wide of midwicket

51.3

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, strikes that on the up though not off the meat, bowled it on a good length and he pushed it through the line to mid-off

51.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, beaten, lovely stuff from the tall Tremlett, short of a good length this time and nipped away to just evade the outside edge, Haddin was drawn forward but was almost done in by the movement

51.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, short of a good length again but holds its line, trusting the bounce and so he should at the WACA, rocks back and dabs it to point

51.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, short of a good length again, punched off the back foot to cover

Australia 173/6   CT Tremlett 18-3-41-3

65.1

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, banged in short, good start to the new spell, Johnson gets under it

65.2

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, beaten! The bouncer is followed by a length ball that Johnson fences at outside off, finding nothing but fresh air

65.3

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, good shot for a single that, Johnson whipping a shot-arm pull to deep midwicket

65.4

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, oooh, this pitched back of a length outside off and climbed past Siddle's outside edge, Prior took it above his head

65.5

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, given all the bounce we've seen today this is unexpected, genuine edge found and it goes low to second slip, landing just short

65.6

Tremlett to Siddle, 1 run, Siddle pushes a single down the ground to finish an excellent comeback over from Tremlett

Australia 218/8   CT Tremlett 19-3-43-3

67.1

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, Tremlett starts with a short ball to Johnson who pulls crisply along the carpet to deep square for one

67.2

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, good delivery here, some extra bounce from a length and Siddle gets into an awkward position to defend

67.3

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, if anything Tremlett could probably be a touch fuller, he again has Siddle in trouble as this crashes into the thigh

67.4

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, Siddle is really hanging back which means even good length balls can be defended off the back foot

67.5

Tremlett to Siddle, 2 runs, banged in short, a yorker would have been a better option, Siddle swings away a pull shot quiet effectively and Trott has to skirt around from fine leg to pick up and throw

67.6

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, there was an attempted yorker, but it's overcooked and Siddle past the full toss back to the bowler.

Australia 225/8   CT Tremlett 20-3-46-3

69.1

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, again Johnson goes for the pull, again it's collected at deep midwicket, and again England will be happy to get Siddle on strike

69.2

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, probing outside off stump, and it's comfortably defended by Siddle

69.3

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, bouncer, Siddle ducks underneath it and that sails through to the bearded, begloved man behind the stumps, Matthew Prior

69.4

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, chopped back onto the pad now, lucky that didn't Rick O'Shea onto the stumps

69.5

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, huge appeal for lbw, turned down by Marais Erasmus and Strauss wants a review! After all three Hot Spot angles, it shows there was no inside edge there, which was one of the main questions. Aha, but Virtual Eye or Eagle Eye or whatever Channel Nine use, says umpire's call for clipping the top of leg stump, so Siddle is safe

69.6

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, solidly defended back down the pitch

Australia 229/8   CT Tremlett 21-3-47-3

71.1

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, pushed away to point

71.2

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, angled in to Siddle, who clips it to leg

71.3

Tremlett to Siddle, 2 runs, trying to york Siddle now, but he flicks it nicely through square leg and it's good, hard running to get back for two

71.4

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, this one really nips in off the seam, striking Siddle on the pad and would have gone down leg

71.5

Tremlett to Siddle, no run, good bouncer, well directed, but Siddle is good enough to duck it

71.6

Tremlett to Siddle, 1 run, Siddle dabs to cover and takes off for a single, so he'll keep the strike

Australia 236/9   CT Tremlett 22-3-50-3

73.1

Tremlett to Siddle, FOUR, edged and that just gets up high enough to fly over the head of Swann, jumping up at second slip - that ball really lifted sharply off the pitch

73.2

Tremlett to Siddle, 1 run, bouncer and this time Siddle doesn't duck, he hooks and gets a single to deep backward square

73.3

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, good ball, banged in short of a length on off stump but Hilfenhaus waves the bat inside it

73.4

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, thumped! That's what Hilfenhaus has developed - the ability to hit good bowlers for four! He's flat batted that over mid off, nicely done indeed

73.5

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, and with short leg in, the bouncer was on, so Hilfenhaus winds up and throws the kitchen sink at that hook, finding the gap at deep square leg! Entertaining stuff!

73.6

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, yorker, and Hilfenhaus defends - almost wanting a single so he can keep the strike!
