Australia v England

England won by an innings and 83 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

1.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, ah, good ball from Tremlett, nipping it back in to Watson, who leaves it alone based on the height - though he's lucky not to have taken that on the body

1.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, straight bat from Watson as Tremlett again attacks the straight line

1.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, a big stride and extravagant leave from Watson, as this ball sails not all that far over the off stump

1.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, Watson launches a big drive, trying to force it through the covers but gets a thick inside edge into the ground and it's collected by Cook at short leg

1.5

Tremlett to Watson, 2 runs, that's a bit better from Watson, who takes a big stride forward and drives through cover, just punching it without too much follow-through

1.6

Tremlett to Watson, 1 no ball, again Watson tries to drive and gets an inside edge

1.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, Watson leans forward to defend, and again Tremlett is probing just on off stump, good line once again

Australia 4/0   CT Tremlett 1-0-3-0

3.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, solidly defended back down the pitch

3.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, on the pads and Hughes jams it towards leg, not too far from Cook under the helmet - he has to be careful there

3.3

Tremlett to Hughes, FOUR, good on-drive from Hughes as he gets the full face of the bat on this one, through mid-on and not leaving a big gate as he did in his first innings at the WACA, when he was bowled playing a similar shot

3.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone outside off

3.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone once again

3.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, half a shout for lbw as Hughes gets one swinging in, but it was certainly sailing down the leg side

Australia 9/0   CT Tremlett 2-0-7-0

5.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, oh boy! How did Watson survive that!? Good movement in from Tremlett, a length that draws Watson forward to drive and it's nipped in off the seam, somehow missing the stumps - it's fizzed an inch or two over the bails

5.2

Tremlett to Watson, 1 run, another good ball angling in to Watson, who works it off the hips but in the air behind square leg, not exactly in control

5.3

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, pushed across Hughes, who leaves alone outside off

5.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, beaten outside off this time as Tremlett pitches it on off and moves it away a fraction

5.5

Tremlett to Hughes, 1 run, worked away off the hips to fine leg

5.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, half a shout from behind the batsman as Watson leans forward and gets it off pad, and maybe bat, but the ball lands safely short of the slips

Australia 12/0   CT Tremlett 3-0-9-0

7.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, good line on middle stump and it's going well over the top - Hughes thinks about playing and then decides to leave

7.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, shouts of catch it as Hughes takes one on the side and Prior dives to his right, he can't quite get there and Aleem Dar calls it a dead ball - Hughes wasn't really playing a shot at that

7.3

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, terrific delivery! Good length to make Hughes play, and it jags away off the seam to beat the outside edge

7.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, worked to leg by Hughes - England are really testing him on the hips with short leg in

7.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, there's an appeal from England, for either a catch or lbw, but both are denied by Aleem Dar. Swinging down leg and striking Hughes above the knee roll before lobbing to gully - no bat involved and England don't challenge it

7.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, short and wide of off, Hughes goes for the slashing upper cut, but can't connect

Australia 13/0   CT Tremlett 4-1-9-0

9.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, left alone well wide of off

9.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, again Watson lunges forward to defend a ball that moves in, again he doesn't quite get the full face of the bat on to it

9.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, nudged away to leg safely wide of Cook

9.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, left alone outside off

9.5

Tremlett to Watson, no run, oh, is that a half-chance? Watson gets an inside edge onto his pad and it's lobbed in front of Cook at short leg, he dives forward and can't get there.

9.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, defended back down the pitch

Australia 14/0   CT Tremlett 5-2-9-0

11.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, bounce and carry but too short to make Watson play, so he leaves it

11.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, straighter line and Watson meets it with a straight bat, defending to leg

11.3

Tremlett to Watson, 1 leg bye, too much angle down leg this time and Watson works it away behind square

11.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, that's a good, probing line just outside off and full enough to entice the drive, but Hughes resists his urges and leaves it

11.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone outside off and Prior ends up taking this at head height

11.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, nudged past short leg but Tremlett bounds across to do the fielding himself and prevent a run

Australia 17/0   CT Tremlett 6-3-9-0

13.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, good ball with some bounce outside off, Watson looks to defend and then draws the bat inside it

13.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, hmm, this one has swung both ways, moving away from Watson and then tailing back as it goes through to Prior

13.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, left alone outside off

13.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, bouncer and well directed, but Watson seems to have all the time in the world to duck underneath this

13.5

Tremlett to Watson, 3 runs, driven through the leg side though a touch uppishly - Watson gets it wide enough of mid on to be safe and Anderson does the chasing

13.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, ah, Hughes survives an edge just short of gully! Well bowled as it squared him up and his edge looked as if it would carry, but then bounced safely short

Australia 31/0   CT Tremlett 7-3-12-0

25.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, starts well, bringing Watson forward around off stump in splice-jarring defence

25.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, once again Tremlett bangs it down on a length in the outside-off-stump channel, Watson draws his bat inside the line to leave alone

25.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, good judgement again from Watson, leaving the ball on length as it nips away from off stump

25.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, grunt from Tremlett as he delivers, banging it in just short of a length and squares Watson up in defence

25.5

Tremlett to Watson, no run, more careful leaving from Watson, he's lined up his off stump perfectly this morning

25.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, excellent leave this one, possibly the best of the morning, Tremlett's delivery landed on an off-stump line but nipped away and Watson had none of it

Australia 54/0   CT Tremlett 8-4-12-0

27.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, interesting stuff this, Tremlett's natural length is heading over the stumps, which allows Watson to leave. But if Tremlett tries to go fuller it ends up floated a touch and Watson can drive

27.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, again Watson gets to leave alone and it thuds into Prior's gloves. Needs to get Watson to play

27.3

Tremlett to Watson, 1 leg bye, this thuds into the thigh pad and it bobbles away for a single behind square

27.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, good delivery, nipping back from a length and Hughes skips back to defend

27.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, shortish delivery sends Hughes back and he whips the bottom hand off the bat as he defends to short leg

27.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, identical delivery to end a decent comeback over for Tremlett

Australia 55/0   CT Tremlett 9-5-12-0

29.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, banged in short, bit of waste really, outside off stump and Hughes gets to crouch under it

29.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, very short again, touch too wide of off and Hughes has nout to do with it

29.3

Tremlett to Hughes, OUT, The battle ends for Hughes! What a disappointment. Tremlett bangs it in on a length outside off, Hughes could have left it but instead fenced fatally and it nipped the edge and flew to Collingwood at third slip who took the chance above his head

PJ Hughes c Collingwood b Tremlett 31 (121m 93b 5x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

29.4

Tremlett to Khawaja, 2 runs, and Khawaja is off the mark immediately, he gets a ball on the leg stump and works it safely past short leg for a couple

29.5

Tremlett to Khawaja, FOUR, magnificent start to Khawaja's Test career! He's laced a pull from just below chest height through midwicket, he really timed that to perfection

29.6

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, left alone outside off stump now

Australia 61/1   CT Tremlett 10-5-18-1

31.1

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, edged and it's short of Swann at second slip! That's the line that might test Khawaja, just outside off stump on a good length

31.2

Tremlett to Khawaja, 2 runs, again it's soft hands from Khawaja, as he angles the bat and guides it past gully for another couple of runs

31.3

Tremlett to Khawaja, FOUR, not a good ball, and not good fielding either, as Khawaja flicks a ball from wide of leg stump through square leg and it gets past the fielder, who probably should have stopped that

31.4

Tremlett to Khawaja, 2 runs, clunked into the turf outside off stump and that one bounces through the cordon

31.5

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, probing outside off and Khawaja defends solidly

31.6

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, Tremlett pushes this one across Khawaja, who shoulders arms

Australia 75/1   CT Tremlett 11-5-26-1

33.1

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, that's a better ball from Tremlett, good length and just outside off, Khawaja defends

33.2

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, Khawaja jumps back into his crease to defend once again

33.3

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, testing him outside off again, and Khawaja is happy to leave it alone

33.4

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, a good defensive push to cover as Tremlett gets his line right - he was off the mark in that first full over after lunch

33.5

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, pushed across wider of off and it's left alone

33.6

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, straighter line now and Khawaja closes the face as he nudges the ball to square leg

Australia 79/1   CT Tremlett 12-6-26-1

35.1

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, Tremlett pushes it across Khawaja, who leaves it

35.2

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, another good, solid forward defensive shot from Khawaja

35.3

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, that was driven well towards cover, but he couldn't beat Pietersen

35.4

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, on the hips now and it's clipped to square leg

35.5

Tremlett to Khawaja, 1 run, on the pads again and Khawaja flicks it a tad uppishly through square leg to the man in the deep

35.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, left alone on length - it sails safely over the stumps

Australia 84/1   CT Tremlett 13-6-27-1

37.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, banged in short of a length and it's moving back in to Watson, who sways backwards to leave it

37.2

Tremlett to Watson, 1 run, Watson steps right back into his crease to glance this one behind square leg

37.3

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, good ball - nipping back in to Khawaja, who is struck on the leg trying to work it through the on side

37.4

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, defended towards the off side

37.5

Tremlett to Khawaja, no run, banged in short of a length and Khawaja defends

37.6

Tremlett to Khawaja, FOUR, shouts of 'caaatch' as Khawaja cuts in the air, but it's safely between the slips and gully, and it runs away for another boundary

Australia 89/1   CT Tremlett 14-6-32-1

39.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, short of a length and outside off, Watson leaves it

39.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, fullish on off stump and Watson drives, but straight to mid-off

39.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, another limbo-like sway backwards and out of the way from Watson as the ball sails over the stumps

39.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, Watson jumps back into his crease to defend to point

39.5

Tremlett to Watson, FOUR, well-timed by Watson, that's a confident flick through midwicket and although it was in the air it was safely wide of the fielder, that has positively raced to the boundary

39.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, defended towards off

Australia 96/1   CT Tremlett 15-6-36-1

57.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, on line immediately, and Hussey blocks it back down the pitch

57.2

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, again Hussey defends solidly back to Tremlett

57.3

Tremlett to Hussey, FOUR, more runs behind point for Hussey - that's been a productive region for him so far - as he cuts late and along the ground all the way to the boundary

57.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, tighter line but it's short of a length and Hussey is happy to leave

57.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, on the off stump and no movement from Tremlett, it's defended

57.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, left alone outside off

Australia 134/3   CT Tremlett 16-6-40-1

59.1

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, tidy start, nothing dramatic but Tremlett eases in, hits a fullish length around off stump and finds the familiar forward defence of Hussey

59.2

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, this is a touch shorter, enough for Hussey to try and turn it into the leg side, but without enough power to pick up a single

59.3

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Hussey has shown good judgement outside off stump all series, it's why he's Australia's highest runscorer and here the foot of width outside off is left alone

59.4

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, again Tremlett finds the channel a fraction outside off and Hussey flags it through to Prior

59.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, good delivery here, Tremlett adjusts his line to off stump and forces Hussey to defend under his eyes. Tremlett watches before dragging himself back to his mark, doesn't seem like a bloke who does many things in a hurry

59.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, good finish to a solid opening over, Tremlett again banging away back of a length around off stump and Hussey solid in defence

Australia 134/4   CT Tremlett 17-7-40-1

61.1

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, excellent delivery from Tremlett, well negotiated by Haddin. It was just short of a full length, nipped away from an off-stump line and Haddin's soft hands in defence meant it went down to slip

61.2

Tremlett to Haddin, 2 runs, Tremlett throws this up fuller, he doesn't seem overly comfortable aiming fuller and the line is wrong allowing Haddin to clip to fine leg for a couple

61.3

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, full again from Tremlett but the line is better this time and Haddin eases into his customary full-faced drive back to the bowler

61.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, good delivery here, hitting the pitch on a fullish length and maintaining a very straight line. Haddin again drives cautiously back to the bowler

61.5

Tremlett to Haddin, (no ball) 1 run, very rare no ball from an England bowler, they really don't bowl many, but Tremlett oversteps as he lands a good delivery fullish around middle that Haddin's inside edge earns him a single

61.5

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, Hussey gets another sighter outside off stump that he happily leaves alone

61.6

Tremlett to Hussey, no run, good finish to a good Tremlett over, up and around off stump and Hussey is sturdy in defence

Australia 141/4   CT Tremlett 18-7-44-1

63.1

Tremlett to Hussey, 2 runs, Tremlett gets his line a touch wrong here to Hussey, allowing a controlled leg-side clip around the corner for a couple

63.2

Tremlett to Hussey, 1 run, classic Hussey batting this, watches a good delivery onto the bat, drops to cover and skips a single

63.3

Tremlett to Smith, no run, touch short but very straight as always and Smith hops back, gets squared up, but defends well

63.4

Tremlett to Smith, no run, this is the sort of shot that makes Smith look a No. 8, solid delivery moving away from an off-stump channel and Smith fences a defence, bat far away from body

63.5

Tremlett to Smith, no run, this is defended more securely around off stump

63.6

Tremlett to Smith, no run, precious leave alone as Smith lifts his bat high out of trouble

Australia 146/5   CT Tremlett 19-7-47-1

65.1

Tremlett to Smith, no run, Tremlett wills himself to a fullish length and Smith wills himself to get forward in defence

65.2

Tremlett to Smith, no run, another very smart piece of fielding allows Tremlett to get away with a short and wide one, Bell at point dives to save a powerfully struck back-foot drive to keep Smith pinned on 0

65.3

Tremlett to Smith, no run, excellent line and length here from Tremlett ensures Smith can do nothing but defend off the front foot

65.4

Tremlett to Smith, no run, once again Bell at cover point saves a powerful shot, diving to his right to stop Smith's cover drive. Pressure building

65.5

Tremlett to Smith, no run, grunt from Tremlett as he bangs this in much shorter, Smith has plenty of time to duck underneath it

65.6

Tremlett to Smith, no run, maiden over, frustrating one for Smith, ends with Tremlett hitting a full length around off stump and forcing careful defence

Australia 146/5   CT Tremlett 20-8-47-1

81.1

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Tremlett starts by probing outside off, and it's defended by Johnson

81.2

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, pushed to the leg side, the batsmen take off for a quick single

81.3

Tremlett to Smith, no run, right on line from Tremlett, who squares Smith up and gets a thick edge to gully along the ground

81.4

Tremlett to Smith, 1 run, nudged away through square leg for one more run

81.5

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 leg bye, on the hips, Johnson works it fine for another run

81.6

Tremlett to Smith, no run, and the over finishes with an elaborate leave from Smith

Australia 176/6   CT Tremlett 21-8-49-1

83.1

Tremlett to Smith, FOUR, genuine edge and that will run away to the boundary at third man! That wasn't what Smith had in mind for his first boundary of the innings - it safely bounced short of the cordon and in any case it was wide of third slip

83.2

Tremlett to Smith, no run, there's a bit of a caught-behind shout from England, but none of the players seemed entirely convinced and neither was Aleem Dar. Replays show that went between bat and body, and flicked Smith's jumper on the way through

83.3

Tremlett to Smith, 3 runs, confident cover drive from Smith, he beats the fielder but the outfield isn't super fast and they have to settle for three

83.4

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Johnson defends from the off stump

83.5

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Tremlett is testing Johnson on off stump with the ball that just goes on with the natural angle - the batsman defends

83.6

Tremlett to Johnson, FOUR, width for Johnson and he has a dip - cutting hard and finding the space just wide of third slip, that gets to the boundary at third man

Australia 187/6   CT Tremlett 22-8-60-1

85.1

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Tremlett pushes it across Johnson, who leaves it

85.2

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, wider of off and Johnson leaves it alone

85.3

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, on the leg stump, Johnson defends back down the pitch

85.4

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 bye, well now, that's interesting, the ball has shaped a little after being left alone by Johnson and Prior has taken it on the thumb, allowing a bye as it deflects. He's lucky not to have broken his thumb, there

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   CT Tremlett 23-9-60-1

87.1

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Johnson pushes off the back foot down towards mid-off

87.2

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Johnson has some width outside off, he's driven hard to deep cover but declines the single, interesting

87.3

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, driven to deep point, and some slow-hand clapping begins now as again Johnson refuses the single

87.4

Tremlett to Johnson, 2 runs, good running from Johnson, he's got a shortish ball and pulled hard into the ground and away to deep midwicket, running hard to get back for two

87.5

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, ah, but Tremlett goes down leg and allows a single as Johnson glances off his hip

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   CT Tremlett 24-9-63-1

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

92.3

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, worked away off the legs through square for a single

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   CT Tremlett 25-9-65-1

94.1

Tremlett to Johnson, FOUR, more runs for Johnson, wrong line from Tremlett as he strays on the pads and Johnson just glances it fine and runs it away to the boundary

94.2

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, pushed really wide of off now, and Johnson looks to pull but this one then swings further away and he can't connect

94.3

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, Johnson cuts hard in the air to deep point, and declines the single with only three more balls to come until lunch

94.4

Tremlett to Johnson, 1 run, down leg side again, Johnson pulls it fine and thinks about taking two but has to settle for a single

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!

94.6

Tremlett to Johnson, no run, cut to point and can't find the gap
