  • Overs 0-50

Tremlett to Watson, OUT, third time lucky for England, Tremlett strikes with a cracker of a delivery, climbed from a length and rapped the glove, it looped gently to gully, simple enough chance for England to finally hold one

SR Watson c Pietersen b Tremlett 5 (14m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Australia 15/1   PJ Hughes 10* (8b 2x4)   CT Tremlett 1.2-0-10-1

Bresnan to Hughes, OUT, Bresnan has his first Ashes wicket and Hughes has gone. Full and wide, inviting a slash but Hughes didn't get enough of it, instead the edge flew straight to Pietersen who made no mistake in the gully

PJ Hughes c Pietersen b Bresnan 16 (59m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 37/2   RT Ponting 10* (36b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 1.1-1-0-1

Tremlett to Ponting, OUT, gone! Tremlett strikes again, what a delivery. Spitting off a length and going away off the seam, Ponting is rooted to the crease and pushes at the delivery. A thick edge flies straight to Graeme Swann

RT Ponting c Swann b Tremlett 10 (52m 38b 2x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

Australia 37/3   MJ Clarke 0* (5b)   CT Tremlett 5.2-2-17-2

Anderson to Hussey, OUT, edged! Anderson strikes straight away, and what a delivery to do it with. Landing on middle and off and shooting towards the slips, the length was full and Hussey was drawn into the drive, getting a good, healthy edge that flies through to Prior

MEK Hussey c †Prior b Anderson 8 (44m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.51

Australia 58/4   MJ Clarke 12* (30b 2x4)   JM Anderson 7.2-2-19-1

Anderson to Smith, OUT, Smith gone now, always looked a matter of time, pushed very hard at this outside off, touch of nibble away off the pitch found the edge and Prior did the rest

SPD Smith c †Prior b Anderson 6 (18m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Australia 66/5   MJ Clarke 14* (40b 2x4)   JM Anderson 9.3-3-24-2

Anderson to Clarke, OUT, brilliant bowling from Anderson, he's just worked Clarke over with consistent, probing away swing and this time it finds the edge, Clarke pushing at the ball, feathered edge and Prior collects the simple chance. Australia in total disarray

MJ Clarke c †Prior b Anderson 20 (89m 54b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.03

Australia 77/6   BJ Haddin 5* (11b 1x4)   JM Anderson 11.4-3-30-3

Bresnan to Haddin, OUT, Bresnan has another and Haddin has gifted him this, flat-footed waft of a drive, flicked the edge and went through to Strauss. Pretty miserable stuff this from the home side

BJ Haddin c Strauss b Bresnan 5 (23m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Australia 77/7   MG Johnson 0* (2b)   TT Bresnan 11.5-5-21-2

Anderson to Johnson, OUT, Anderson has his man! Johnson's gone for a duck, this is a cracking delivery, seams away off a full length, finds the edge and Prior has his fourth catch

MG Johnson c †Prior b Anderson 0 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 77/8   RJ Harris 0* (1b)   JM Anderson 12.2-4-30-4

Tremlett to Siddle, OUT, there we go, another one is on his way and Australia are nine down. Tremlett pitches one up invitingly outside off, a touch of movement through the air and off the pitch takes the ball away from the bat and a regulation edge lands safely in Prior's gloves. His fifth catch today

PM Siddle c †Prior b Tremlett 11 (25m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

Australia 92/9   RJ Harris 4* (17b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 10.3-4-26-3

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, OUT, all over, Australia are out for 98 as Hilfenhaus feathers a sixth catch through to Prior

BW Hilfenhaus c †Prior b Tremlett 0 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 98/10   RJ Harris 10* (23b 2x4)   CT Tremlett 11.5-5-26-4
