The Ashes - 4th Test

Australia v England

England won by an innings and 157 runs

Overs 0-50

34.6

Bresnan to Harris, no run, Bresnan locates an off-stump line and Harris somehow jabs a bat down on time, another maiden from Bresnan but this time with the added sauce of wicket

Australia 77/7   RJ Harris 0* (1b)

35.5

Anderson to Harris, no run, Harris this time watches the line outside off stump and leaves well alone

35.6

Anderson to Harris, no run, good delivery to finish the over, swinging in and Harris defends carefully

Australia 78/8   RJ Harris 0* (3b)

37.1

Anderson to Harris, FOUR, four for Harris, I'm not sure he knew much about it, just swished across the line, got a top edge that sailed over the slips down to the third man rope

37.2

Anderson to Harris, no run, first sledge of the day from Anderson, probably deserves to as well, lovely ball zips past the edge

37.3

Anderson to Harris, no run, umpire Dar has called this a dead ball, much to Harris's annoyance because an inswinger clipped the thigh and ran away for four, but Harris was so late on the attempted nurdle that Dar thought he hadn't played a shot

37.4

Anderson to Harris, no run, left alone studiously outside off stump

37.5

Anderson to Harris, no run, England have barely bowled any short balls this innings, very good discipline, Harris blocks another full delivery

37.6

Anderson to Harris, no run, left alone quietly outside off stump. It's been all England since lunch and they can reward themselves with a drink. Liam will be here after the break

Australia 86/8   RJ Harris 4* (9b 1x4)

38.2

Tremlett to Harris, no run, Tremlett straightens his line and pulls the length back a touch, Harris stays at the crease to defend

38.3

Tremlett to Harris, no run, seaming in to thump into the front pad this time, but that's too high and heading down the leg side too

38.4

Tremlett to Harris, no run, Harris has an airy swish outside off, and is lucky not to get an edge on this

38.5

Tremlett to Harris, no run, forced out towards cover point, where there is a slight misfield ... but not enough to warrant chancing a single upon

38.6

Tremlett to Harris, no run, Harris defends solidly into the off side and screams "no!" at his partner

Australia 89/8   RJ Harris 4* (14b 1x4)

39.4

Anderson to Harris, no run, good, testing follow-up ball. But Harris is solid in defence

39.5

Anderson to Harris, no run, and again, Anderson keeping it tight but Harris is hanging in there doggedly

39.6

Anderson to Harris, no run, and nudged gently into the leg side to end

Australia 92/8   RJ Harris 4* (17b 1x4)

41.1

Anderson to Harris, no run, nicely done by Harris, who is tight in defence

41.2

Anderson to Harris, FOUR, good shot there, the ball was there to be hit - short and wide - but Harris didn't try to make too much of hit, just getting himself into a good, balanced position on the back foot and scything a cut through gully

41.3

Anderson to Harris, no run, swinging in, Harris takes this one the thigh pad as he tries to work to leg

41.4

Anderson to Harris, 2 runs, this time he gets bat on it, clipping to square leg

41.5

Anderson to Harris, no run, defended straight back into the pitch with a vertical bat

41.6

Anderson to Harris, no run, again curving in late through the air, Harris can't get a touch on an attempted leg glance and is struck on the pad. Heading way down leg though, not even a hint of an appeal

Australia 98/9   RJ Harris 10* (23b 2x4)
Overs 0-50
