England won by an innings and 83 runs

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

10.1

Bresnan to Hughes, 1 run, immediately Bresnan is on the leg stump and Hughes works it through midwicket for a run

10.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, swinging away - and quite a lot of swing, left alone by Watson

10.3

Bresnan to Watson, 1 run, this one swings on to the pads and Watson pushes forward without much commitment, it runs away off his pad to square leg

10.4

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, nudged into the ground and away to midwicket

10.5

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, a bit of bounce this time surprises Hughes, who defends towards point

10.6

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, solidly defended by Hughes, who pushes towards the off side

Australia 16/0   TT Bresnan 1-0-2-0

12.1

Bresnan to Watson, 3 runs, Watson is squared up by Bresnan and gets a thick edge wide of the slips, it runs away towards third man and is chased down by Collingwood and Strauss, who can't keep it to two

12.2

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, down the leg side, Hughes doesn't play

12.3

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, punched away off the back foot towards point

12.4

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, excellent delivery from Bresnan beats the bat of Hughes and flies through to Prior, there's a shout for caught behind and Bowden says no - Strauss also decides against reviewing it

12.5

Bresnan to Hughes, FOUR, lovely shot from Hughes! He's got a hint of width outside off and punches it off the back foot through cover, good timing and Alastair Cook tries to chase this down, making a horrible mess off the boundary rope as he crashes into it with his slide

12.6

Bresnan to Hughes, FOUR, cut hard through point and that's two boundaries in succession! Good shot, but it was a bit too wide from Bresnan

Australia 28/0   TT Bresnan 2-0-13-0

14.1

Bresnan to Watson, no run, Bresnan continues and Watson is far happier jumping forward to him than Tremlett, blocks confidently to cover

14.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, this thuds into the pads as Watson lunges forward, Bresnan offers an appeal but doesn't really mean it. It was going over

14.3

Bresnan to Watson, no run, marvellous, languid leave outside off stump. The leaving this morning has been sensational

14.4

Bresnan to Watson, no run, excellent judgement again outside off stump, Watson thundered forward as always, thought about playing before thinking better of it

14.5

Bresnan to Watson, 2 runs, ooh, Watson gets squared up, flinging his back leg out like a drunk dancer at an office party, it skews off the edge and runs away down towards third man

14.6

Bresnan to Watson, no run, no alarm this time, both front and back foot firmly grounded as Watson clunks a defence to cover

Australia 33/0   TT Bresnan 3-0-15-0

16.1

Bresnan to Hughes, 2 runs, sign of Hughes's growing confidence as he drives on the up outside off stump through extra cover. Quite an audacious shot actually and similar to his MCG first-innings dismissal

16.2

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, this is a touch fuller from Bresnan and Hughes can do nothing but defend

16.3

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, decent delivery here, offering to nip away and Hughes is careful in defence

16.4

Bresnan to Hughes, 3 runs, another drive, expansive as well but not quite where Hughes intended. It was dished up outside off and Hughes launched into it, driving on the up with a touch of inside edge straight of mid-off for three

16.5

Bresnan to Watson, no run, Bresnan shoves this into Watson and strikes him on the top of the pad as he lunges forward

16.6

Bresnan to Watson, no run, not a great over that, Bresnan is scratching away at the footholes too. Ends the over with a delivery outside off that Watson watches go by harmlessly

Australia 43/0   TT Bresnan 4-0-20-0

18.1

Bresnan to Watson, no run, robust defence from Watson as he gets forward to a Bresnan length ball

18.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, more careful defence from Watson, who again looks in good order

18.3

Bresnan to Watson, 2 runs, Watson gets a chance to drive and does so well, threading it through cover. Pietersen gives chase before unleashing a dismal throw that sails over an unimpressed Matt Prior

18.4

Bresnan to Watson, no run, this is a touch shorter and Watson defends off the back foot

18.5

Bresnan to Watson, no run, no need for Watson to play here outside off stump, so he doesn't

18.6

Bresnan to Watson, no run, left all alone again outside off stump to end the over. In tough conditions, the Australian openers are doing a mighty fine job. Might be time for a touch of Swann

Australia 45/0   TT Bresnan 5-0-22-0

28.1

Bresnan to Watson, no run, good start to a new spell as Bresnan finds a good length and line and Watson defends crisply

28.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, thrown up full and wide, inviting a drive but Watson rejects the offer

28.3

Bresnan to Watson, no run, hint of swing here away from the off stump allowing Watson to leave alone

28.4

Bresnan to Watson, no run, Bresnan is trying desperately to draw Watson to push outside off stump but the batsman is leaving superbly

28.5

Bresnan to Watson, no run, this is bowling dry vs batting dry and it's working out very well for Australia

28.6

Bresnan to Watson, no run, good delivery to finish, this would have hit the top of off stump but Watson defended securely

Australia 55/0   TT Bresnan 6-1-22-0

38.1

Bresnan to Watson, no run, on off stump immediately, and Watson defends

38.2

Bresnan to Watson, 1 run, angled towards the pads, Watson just helps this on its way behind square leg

38.3

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, good ball, just on off stump, but Khawaja's defence looks pretty solid

38.4

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, pushed across Khawaja and tempting him to drive, which he does, but straight to mid-off

38.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, pushed back down the pitch to Bresnan

38.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, 2 runs, more runs for Usman as he gets an edgy shot away wide of the slips - he really does have a soft way with the bat, all his edges have been bouncing safely short of catching men so far in this innings

Australia 92/1   TT Bresnan 7-1-25-0

40.1

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, inside edge on to the pad from Khawaja as he gets a good ball from Bresnan, just straightening down the line

40.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, pushed across Khawaja, who leaves one wide of off

40.3

Bresnan to Khawaja, 2 runs, not a bad cut from Khawaja there, he looked set to cut in the air off the front foot but managed to get it down into the turf and forward of point

40.4

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, a big stride from Khawaja across his stumps, as he leaves it alone

40.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, Bresnan is trying to tempt Khawaja outside off, but it's left alone

40.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, no shot offered again as it's angled across the left-hander

Australia 98/1   TT Bresnan 8-1-27-0

42.1

Bresnan to Watson, no run, Bresnan continues to hustle around off stump and finds a very sturdy Watson defence

42.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, and again Watson clunks another firm forward-block to cover

42.3

Bresnan to Watson, no run, ooh, this nips back and crashes into the flap of Watson's pad as he looked to leave. The bounce was taking it over so no referral from Strauss

42.4

Bresnan to Watson, no run, does anyone have more solid hands than Watson? Really bangs down on the ball in defence

42.5

Bresnan to Watson, no run, solid, sturdy defence, Watson happy to go slow

42.6

Bresnan to Watson, no run, touch of rain is forecast and Watson looks to be playing for it

Australia 101/1   TT Bresnan 9-2-27-0

44.1

Bresnan to Watson, FOUR, bit of a gift from Bresnan - leg-stump half-volley - and Watson clips it away firmly past midwicket for four to bring up an excellent 50 stand. Australia in good order today

44.2

Bresnan to Watson, no run, this is a touch shorter around off stump and defended

44.3

Bresnan to Watson, OUT, Watson is furious with himself and Bresnan is jumping and wooting in delight. All the hard work again comes to not enough for Watson. It was about a foot wide of off stump - the sort of line Watson has left alone all day - and Watson pushed hard in defence, it took the edge and went through gently to Strauss

SR Watson c Strauss b Bresnan 45 (182m 127b 5x4 0x6) SR: 35.43

44.4

Bresnan to Clarke, 3 runs, Clarke's away! Not without a hint of nerves though. Bresnan asked for a drive wide of off stump and Clarke really pushed at it, wide of cover for three

44.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, real spring in Bresnan's step now and forces Khawaja to defend from the crease here

44.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, stylish drive down to mid-off to end the over

Australia 108/2   TT Bresnan 10-2-34-1

46.1

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, Bresnan hits back of a length and it runs off the face of Khawaja's defensive blade to the gully

46.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, 1 run, straightish delivery from Bresnan and Khawaja fiddles it through midwicket for a single

46.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, banged in very short wide of off stump, Clarke thought about a pull shot but decided rightly it would have been ridiculous

46.4

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, short again from Bresnan, straighter this time and it's tucked off this hip around the corner for a single

46.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, lots to like about Khawaja's batting, he seems to have that most precious of qualities - time

46.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, 1 run, flashing cut, really throws the hands and wrists at some width outside off. Only some flashing fielding at point prevents a boundary

Australia 111/2   TT Bresnan 11-2-37-1

48.1

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, left alone outside off

48.2

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, angled in to the off stump of Clarke, who pushes it back to the bowler

48.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, a little edgy there as Clarke is squared up, it runs along the ground to gully

48.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, there's a big stride forward from Clarke, who defends

48.5

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, well outside off and it's left alone

48.6

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, another one left alone by Clarke as Bresnan bangs it in short of a length

Australia 111/2   TT Bresnan 12-3-37-1

50.1

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, Bresnan attacks the off stump again, Khawaja defends again

50.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, 1 run, there's an interesting shot from Khawaja, just a soft-handed dab to midwicket, it went in the air for a while but was well judged by the batsman

50.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, clipped away to the leg side

50.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, solidly defended by Clarke, who nudges to cover

50.5

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, watchful stuff from Clarke, who meets the ball with the full face of the bat

50.6

Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, gone! Clarke has been caught at gully, cutting hard and in the air, really not a smart shot from the Australian captain and Anderson takes the catch

MJ Clarke c Anderson b Bresnan 4 (25m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.04

Australia 113/3   TT Bresnan 13-3-38-2

52.1

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, meanwhile, Khawaja still looks solid, and defends another one back down the pitch

52.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, FOUR, that is confidence! This ball was not that short, and on leg stump, but Khawaja has gone for the pull, lifting it up into the air but safely over square leg, that has bounced just short of being a six

52.3

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, well wide of off and left alone

52.4

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, again Bresnan gives Khawaja some width, and he leaves it

52.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, ah, good one from Bresnan! Beaten outside off stump by a ball that has pitched on leg and seamed away fiercely

52.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, shoulders arms again to a ball outside off

Australia 120/3   TT Bresnan 14-3-42-2

54.1

Bresnan to Hussey, 1 run, on the pads, Hussey clips a single to square leg

54.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, pushed across Khawaja, who shoulders arms

54.3

Bresnan to Khawaja, FOUR, oooh, a little risky, Khawaja drives hard and in the air behind square through backward point, well out of the reach of the fielder though and runs through to the boundary

54.4

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, left alone outside off

54.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, defended away to the off side

54.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, and again Khawaja lets one through to Prior

Australia 128/3   TT Bresnan 15-3-47-2

56.1

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, solidly defended by Khawaja

56.2

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, defended safely again

56.3

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, and Khawaja's drawn into a defensive push this time, hanging the bat outside off, but he's good enough to nudge it to point

56.4

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, Bresnan pushes another one across Khawaja, who leaves it alone

56.5

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, left alone once more

56.6

Bresnan to Khawaja, no run, good ball and well played - Bresnan tightens up the line and Khawaja gets the bat down in time to defend on off

Australia 130/3   TT Bresnan 16-4-47-2

67.1

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, starts well enough finding a line just outside off stump that Hussey leaves alone

67.2

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, better delivery this time, just a touch fuller, and Hussey stretches forward to defend

67.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, once again Hussey leaves alone outside off stump

67.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, if he doesn't have to play, he won't. Wide of off stump and Hussey has nothing to do with it

67.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, well judged this leave, started around middle but the angle took it wide of off

67.6

Bresnan to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey's reward for all this leaves is a half-volley that is clunked very firmly back past the bowler for four. Really high class batting that over

Australia 155/5   TT Bresnan 17-4-51-2

69.1

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Bresnan hits a good length and line and finds typically compact Hussey defence

69.2

Bresnan to Hussey, 2 runs, really good shot this, minimal risk but Hussey strokes a length ball on the up between cover and point for a couple

69.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, touch shorter this time and Hussey leaves alone outside off stump

69.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, patted back to the bowler

69.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, decent pace from Bresnan, and there is still a bit of bounce with the old ball, but the line is wide enough for Hussey to let go

69.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, this one keeps a touch low, which suggests some uneven bounce is around, too wide of off to cause trouble though

Australia 157/5   TT Bresnan 18-4-53-2

71.1

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, Bresnan bangs in a short ball and Smith looks rushed on a pull shot, ends up swiping it away one-handed, didn't look at all comfortable

71.2

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Hussey on the other hand looks serene, stroking a back-foot drive to point

71.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, wide of off stump again from Bresnan to Hussey, and we all know what that means

71.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, excellent length and line this time, forces Hussey to busily defend back to the bowler

71.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, tempter, dished up full and pushed across Hussey from over the wicket, but Hussey will not fall for such tricks

71.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, and once again it's left alone outside off stump

Australia 159/5   TT Bresnan 19-4-54-2

73.1

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Hussey is happy to play the waiting game, leaving alone anything outside his eyeline wide of off stump

73.2

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Bresnan adjusts his line, hugging off stump here and forcing a slightly open-faced defence

73.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, good delivery here, this really does bounce from a length, Prior collected above his head as Hussey leaves well alone

73.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, good carry and plenty of cheers from the England slips, but Hussey is simply leaving alone

73.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Bresnan hits a very straight line on a length and Hussey offers a perfect forward defence

73.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, maiden over ends with Hussey flagging another one through to Prior

Australia 163/5   TT Bresnan 20-5-54-2

75.1

Bresnan to Smith, no run, back of a length from Bresnan around off stump, quality defensive bowling

75.2

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, Smith toe-ends a drive towards cover where Collingwood scoots around, picks up smartly and narrowly misses the stumps with his throw. Smith would have been home but it was tight because he had to run around Bresnan, which is no mean feat

75.3

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, careful and resolute defence from Hussey again

75.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, Hussey has done nothing wrong in defence this morning

75.5

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, out of nowhere Bresnan lands a cracker! Slanted across the left hander but it jumped and zipped away off a length, climbing past the outside edge

75.6

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, fuller this time but the line remains impeccable, as does Hussey's defence

Australia 165/5   TT Bresnan 21-5-55-2

89.1

Bresnan to Johnson, 1 run, a mix-up here, as Johnson gets it away off his legs and there's an easy single, but the batsmen haven't decided whether to take it! Eventually they go, Prior collects and hits the stumps but Hilfenhaus was just home

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   TT Bresnan 22-5-56-2

91.1

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, angled across Johnson, who lets it go through to Prior

91.2

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, bouncer, and well directed - Johnson is in two minds and tries to swipe a hook but doesn't connect

91.3

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, again Johnson leaves a ball that is pushed across him

91.4

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, nudged defensively to cover

91.5

Bresnan to Johnson, 2 runs, pulled high in the air, and Johnson doesn't quite time it but gets just enough on that for it to land safely out of the reach of mid-on, who was running back

91.6

Bresnan to Johnson, FOUR, that's a much better pull from Johnson, as he gets one down leg and rolls the wrists to run that away along the ground to the boundary at deep backward square

Australia 219/8   TT Bresnan 23-5-62-2

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   TT Bresnan 24-5-64-2

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

95.2

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, Johnson has spent his lunch time watching Michael Hussey videos and mocks the style by leaving well alone outside off stump

95.3

Bresnan to Johnson, 2 runs, wow, that's some shot! Maybe Johnson was watching Trescothick videos as well at lunch, he stands still here and thumps a perfectly-straight batted drive down the ground. It deserved four but a tumbling stop from Trott saves the boundary

95.4

Bresnan to Johnson, 1 run, field set very deep in the leg side means Johnson can pick off a single

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   TT Bresnan 25-5-68-2

97.1

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, Bresnan shoves this wide across Johnson who leaves well alone. The field is set far and wide

97.2

Bresnan to Johnson, 2 runs, two more now, Johnson aims a booming drive and it skews off an inside edge towards deep midwicket

97.3

Bresnan to Johnson, 2 runs, ooh dear, England are ticking now! Thoroughly unamused as Johnson lands a crisp cover drive out to long off, somehow Johnson gets two for it

97.4

Bresnan to Johnson, no run, this is a bit of a whoosh, swiping across the line at thin air

97.5

Bresnan to Johnson, 1 run, Johnson gets his single, good work from him! Each run being cheered now, there is a feelgood factor to Australia at the moment. Johnson backs away, gets a yorker from Bresnan and digs it out wide of cover to scamper a single

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   TT Bresnan 26-5-79-2

99.1

Bresnan to Johnson, 2 runs, touch wide from Bresnan and it's punished with a clunking cut shot that speeds out to deep point for a couple

99.2

Bresnan to Johnson, 1 run, better delivery from Bresnan, fuller and straighter, clipped firmly to long-on and Johnson happy to take the single

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

99.5

Bresnan to Johnson, OUT, that will be all, ends a brilliant counter-attacking innings from Johnson. Maybe he didn't need to play this but he was on a roll. Full from Bresnan around off stump and Johnson aimed a cow-corner swish and missed it, allowing it to clip the top of off stump

MG Johnson b Bresnan 53 (89m 66b 5x4 1x6) SR: 80.30

99.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer gets a massive cheer for successfully defending his first ball in Test cricket

Australia 265/9   TT Bresnan 27-5-83-3

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

101.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, without looking all that secure, Beer has managed to stab a defence

Australia 267/9   TT Bresnan 28-5-84-3

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

103.5

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer survives again, playing with soft hands to defend to gully

103.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, very solid defence to end the over, Bresnan looks for a classic hit-the-top-of-off delivery but finds a similarly textbook defence from the No. 11

Australia 274/9   TT Bresnan 29-5-88-3

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

105.5

Bresnan to Beer, no run, short ball into the ribs is well negotiated by Beer who stands tall and fends it down into the leg side

105.6

Bresnan to Beer, no run, Beer survives. That's all that matters for him. Bresnan hits the off-stump channel and Beer thinks about leaving alone before rushing into a jabbed defence
