141.2

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, ooh, Bresnan aims a leave but is late on it and it ends up clipping his bat as he shouldered arms

141.3

Siddle to Bresnan, 3 runs, Bresnan is away with a solid clunk through midwicket, the sort of shot Prior was trying to play

141.5

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, back of a length from Siddle and Bresnan is solid in defence

141.6

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, very confident and crisp block to finish a wicket-taking over for Siddle

England 463/6   TT Bresnan 3* (4b)
142.4

Harris to Bresnan, no run, Bresnan defends carefully on the front foot, looks in good order so far

142.5

Clarke to Bresnan, no run, decent start from Clarke, finding a line around off stump and Bresnan very confidently rocks forward to defend

142.6

Clarke to Bresnan, 1 run, is this Tim Bresnan or VVS Laxman? Who knows! With a flick of the wrists Bresnan turns this to midwicket for a single

England 465/6   TT Bresnan 4* (7b)
143.1

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, good yorker from Siddle, who is pretty much Australia's barmy one-man army, pounding in like it's the first ball of the series, Bresnan digs it out

143.2

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, fullish and straightish again and Bresnan gets half forward to block

143.3

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, touch of width outside off and Bresnan unfurls a classical leave

143.4

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, decent line from Siddle and a touch of away nibble too, all of which doesn't trouble Bresnan who leaves alone with a flourish

143.5

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, fuller and a touch of indrift finds a squeezed inside edge onto pad, Siddle began an appeal before deciding against it

143.6

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, excellent over ends with Siddle hitting an off-stump line on a full length forcing Bresnan to defend carefully

England 465/6   TT Bresnan 4* (13b)
145.1

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, significant reverse swing for Siddle here, tailing back into Bresnan, who presents a full face to the ball in defence

145.2

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, bouncer this time, Bresnan shapes to duck but doesn't really need to

145.3

Siddle to Bresnan, no run, ah, another lovely leave outside off, close to off stump but Bresnan picked the length and left alone

145.4

Siddle to Bresnan, OUT, Siddle has a five! He's really earned that, gets Bresnan with a classic feathered outside edge to a forward push, might have nibbled away off the pitch a fraction

TT Bresnan c †Haddin b Siddle 4 (22m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.52

England 465/7   TT Bresnan 4 (17b)
