Johnson to Cook, OUT, gone! There's the breakthrough for Australia and it goes to Johnson. Full outside off, brings Cook into the drive and it flies low to gully where Hussey picks up a good low catch.

AN Cook c Hussey b Johnson 32 (91m 63b 3x4 1x6) SR: 50.79

England 78/1   AJ Strauss 45* (83b 7x4)   MG Johnson 5.1-1-17-1

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.

IJL Trott lbw b Johnson 4 (7m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 82/2   AJ Strauss 45* (89b 7x4)   MG Johnson 6.3-2-21-2

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   AJ Strauss 45* (89b 7x4)   MG Johnson 7-2-21-3

Harris to Strauss, OUT, Harris joins the party! Strauss is gone! An edge behind and Haddin takes the straightforward catch! That was just a good line and length - across Strauss and with the swing that has been around he felt he had to play, this one if anything just straightened but didn't really swing

AJ Strauss c †Haddin b Harris 52 (125m 102b 8x4 0x6) SR: 50.98

England 94/4   PD Collingwood 5* (14b)   RJ Harris 7.3-2-35-1

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!

PD Collingwood lbw b Johnson 5 (25m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 29.41

England 98/5   IR Bell 4* (3b 1x4)   MG Johnson 9.3-2-24-4

Siddle to Prior, OUT, gone! Well, the short ball has worked in the end but probably not quite as they expected. The ball after getting hit, Prior moves across his stumps to work it away, but it deflects off his body, back down into his gloves, then down into leg stump to knock off the bail.

MJ Prior b Siddle 12 (62m 42b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

England 145/6   IR Bell 26* (46b 2x4)   PM Siddle 7.4-1-17-1

Harris to Swann, OUT, Harris strikes! Swann is gone, prodding forward and getting an edge through to Haddin, it was another good ball that just straightened enough, well deserved by Harris

GP Swann c †Haddin b Harris 11 (45m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.48

England 181/7   IR Bell 50* (79b 6x4)   RJ Harris 12.1-2-57-2

Harris to Bell, OUT, Harris gets his third! And it's Ian Bell! It was fullish and well wide of off, swinging away from Bell, who went for the drive but saw his edge fly to Ponting at a wide second slip. That was a sharp catch taken at head height, that ball was travelling

IR Bell c Ponting b Harris 53 (133m 90b 6x4 0x6) SR: 58.88

England 186/8   CT Tremlett 2* (13b)   RJ Harris 14.1-3-59-3

Johnson to Tremlett, OUT, gone! Johnson gets five, with a cracking inswinger that takes the off stump out of the ground. Really well bowled and Johnson has deserved that haul - now, can Australia finish England off before tea?

CT Tremlett b Johnson 2 (21m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

England 186/9   JM Anderson 0* (5b)   MG Johnson 17.1-5-37-5

Johnson to Anderson, OUT, it's all over. Johnson has six. Anderson hangs his bat out at a short ball outside off and the edge flies comfortably to Watson at first slip

JM Anderson c Watson b Johnson 0 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 187/10   ST Finn 1* (1b)   MG Johnson 17.3-5-38-6
