85.5

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, good ball, excellent delivery first up for Hilfenhaus to have to deal with! It's a good length but has really risen sharply and struck Hilfenhaus on the shoulder. How that has bounced that much is a mystery!

85.6

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, pushed away to point and can't find the gap

Australia 190/8   BW Hilfenhaus 0* (2b)
86.6

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, 2 runs, and Hilfenhaus gets off the mark with a gentle nudge behind point, also ensuring that he gets back for two to give Johnson the strike

Australia 199/8   BW Hilfenhaus 2* (3b)
87.6

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, ouch! Hilfenhaus takes another blow to the body as this one angles in towards him on a good length, getting Hilfenhaus in the midriff

Australia 202/8   BW Hilfenhaus 2* (4b)
88.6

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, ah, he's drawn the genuine outside edge from Hilfenhaus but that has gone finer than the man at gully and runs away for a boundary - unlucky for Anderson

Australia 207/8   BW Hilfenhaus 6* (5b 1x4)
89.2

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, left alone well outside off

89.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, great ball! Outstanding delivery from Bresnan, who angles it in to off stump and then swings it away, just beating both the outside edge and the stumps

89.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, again Hilfenhaus steers it towards gully, can't find the gap this time

89.5

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, swinging away, and it's left alone

89.6

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, swinging in to the pads of Hilfenhaus, who pushes to mid-on

Australia 208/8   BW Hilfenhaus 6* (10b 1x4)
90.4

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, no run, that's pretty well negotiated by Hilfenhaus, because it was a good inswinger on the stumps and he's driven it hard back to Anderson, who also did very well to field it

90.5

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, a boundary for Hilf! Anderson has swung that on to the pads a touch too much and it's been lifted uppishly over square leg and bounces away to the boundary

90.6

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, no run, left alone outside off, and Johnson will keep the strike

Australia 213/8   BW Hilfenhaus 10* (13b 2x4)
92.1

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, Hilfenhaus dances down the pitch! Hugely entertaining, even though his swipe didn't connect. Tremlett, not surprisingly, looks a bit miffed by that!

92.2

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, bouncer from Tremlett but it's on the leg side and Hilfenhaus helps the pull on its way, in the air to fine leg and walks through for the single, allowing Johnson to take the strike

92.4

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, wide of off and swinging away - Hilfenhaus chases it and tries to guide it through gully but doesn't connect

92.5

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, no run, attacking the body now, it's pushed away to mid-on

92.6

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, 1 leg bye, swinging down leg again, Hilfenhaus gets it away behind square for a run and he'll retain the strike

Australia 222/8   BW Hilfenhaus 11* (18b 2x4)
93.1

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, another good ball from Bresnan, who beats Hilfenhaus outside off with an outswinger

93.2

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 2 runs, Hilfenhaus decides attack is the best form of defence, swiping hard at a wide one outside off, and he's launched it high and safe over the head of point

93.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, pushed along the ground to gully now, just trying to find that gap again

93.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, beaten! Another really lovely piece of bowling, swinging away and unluckily for England not finding the outside edge

93.5

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, almost identical! Again, it's beaten the outside edge as it curves prodigiously

93.6

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, and the inswinger finishes the over, but it's defended safely by Hilfenhaus

Australia 224/8   BW Hilfenhaus 13* (24b 2x4)
94.5

Tremlett to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, edged and it's just safe! Hilfenhaus gets a single as this one flies in the air to the left of the diving gully, not far away at all!

Australia 230/8   BW Hilfenhaus 14* (25b 2x4)
95.1

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, Hilfenhaus thick-edges again to begin the session, it sails through a gap to third man. Good start for Australia

95.5

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, flash and a miss. Bresnan aims full and it swings past an airy drive

95.6

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 4 byes, oh no! Horrid delivery. Bresnan fires this a mile down the leg side, Prior diving at full stretch can't reach it. Should have been wides but either way, Australia are flying after lunch

Australia 238/8   BW Hilfenhaus 15* (28b 2x4)
96.3

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, studious defence from Hilfenhaus on the front foot

96.4

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, that demon Hilfenhaus edge skews this towards point, batsmen thought about one but didn't take it

96.5

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, England appeal as this spins past the inside edge and bobbles off to Collingwood at slip

96.6

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, this time Hilfenhaus leans it gently to leg to finish the over

Australia 239/8   BW Hilfenhaus 15* (32b 2x4)
97.6

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, SIX, hello! What about that!? Incredible stroke. Hilfenhaus saunters down the wicket and thumps this over long-on, scattering the crowds

Australia 250/8   BW Hilfenhaus 21* (33b 2x4 1x6)
98.5

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, Hilfenhaus skips down the wicket this time, only to defend. Huge cheers for everything now

98.6

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, very correct forward block to finish the over

Australia 261/8   BW Hilfenhaus 21* (35b 2x4 1x6)
99.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, banged in short and sharp from Bresnan and Hilfenhaus aims an almighty hoik, swishing at fresh air as it zips through to Prior

99.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, back of a length delivery around off stump finds a thickish edge that skews to point for a single

Australia 265/8   BW Hilfenhaus 22* (37b 2x4 1x6)
100.1

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, Hilfenhaus pokes this back to the bowler

100.2

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, again Swann gives it some air and it's patted back to the bowler

100.3

Swann to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, Hilfenhaus has seen enough and aims a big swing to deep midwicket, not quite timing it well but earns a single

Australia 266/9   BW Hilfenhaus 23* (40b 2x4 1x6)
101.1

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, banged in shorter and Hilfenhaus wasn't rushing up the wicket this time, tucks him up in defence

101.2

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, haha, Hilfenhaus tried to give this plenty of humpty but with head up and the ball short he was never going to connect

101.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, banged in short again and Hilfenhaus aims a wheeling hook shot, only to miss again

101.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, sharp yorker from Bresnan. That's the first yorker England have landed I think, Hilfenhaus has his eye in and manages to jab this out

101.5

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, Bresnan has his fastest wheels on at the moment but Hilfenhaus's inside-edge has earned him the result he wants, a single, leaving Beer just a single delivery to survive

Australia 267/9   BW Hilfenhaus 24* (45b 2x4 1x6)
102.1

Swann to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, great shot for one, Hilfenhaus probably ran because he thought the shot deserved something, he skipped down the wicket, opened his body and stroked a firm extra-cover drive to sweeper on the off side rope

Australia 268/9   BW Hilfenhaus 25* (46b 2x4 1x6)
103.1

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, Bresnan hammers away at a fullish length on off stump and Hilfenhaus defends carefully

103.2

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 2 runs, another perfectly-played outside edge over the slips to third man, Pietersen fumbles which makes a tight second run a touch easier

103.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 wide, very short from Bresnan and he's unimpressed as it's called a wide. It was only a fraction over Hilfenhaus's swishing hook shot, so fair enough for the bowler to be annoyed

103.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, another big swing and a miss from the batsman. He's done plenty of that and it's not improving England's mood at all

103.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, fuller delivery that finds an inside-edge, thuds onto pad and trickles into the leg side for a single

Australia 274/9   BW Hilfenhaus 28* (50b 2x4 1x6)
104.1

Swann to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, Swann continues and so does Hilfenhaus! Thrusts a foot down the pitch and swings a slog-sweep powerfully to the square leg rope

104.2

Swann to Hilfenhaus, no run, this time it is defended with the straightest of blades to cover

104.3

Swann to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, another full-face push, this time wide of the bowler to long-off for a single

Australia 279/9   BW Hilfenhaus 33* (53b 3x4 1x6)
105.1

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, Bresnan hits back of a length, not allowing Hilfenhaus to swing his arms and it's defended carefully

105.2

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, Hilfenhaus grins, shrugs his shoulders and chews his gum after missing a very ambitious, down-on-one-knee hoik to deep midwicket

105.3

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, no run, this time it's defended off the front foot, no incident here

105.4

Bresnan to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, another swipe from the batsman, doesn't get anywhere near timing it but it runs off the inside edge to midwicket for another single

Australia 280/9   BW Hilfenhaus 34* (57b 3x4 1x6)
106.1

Anderson to Hilfenhaus, OUT, and that will be that. Strange dismissal, Anderson bangs it in very short and it gets very high, Hilfenhaus aims a vertical-batted tennis-smash and ends up with a fine edge through to Prior

BW Hilfenhaus c †Prior b Anderson 34 (88m 58b 3x4 1x6) SR: 58.62

Australia 280/10   BW Hilfenhaus 34 (58b 3x4 1x6)
