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

Australia 9/0   PJ Hughes 5* (7b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 1.3-0-7-0

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

Australia 24/0   PJ Hughes 12* (40b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 1.5-0-9-0

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   PJ Hughes 16* (41b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 2-0-13-0

Anderson to Hughes, FOUR, Hughes is rewarded with a fuller ball, in the slot outside off stump. He stepped forward and drove crisply, without timing it perfectly, but enough to pick up a good boundary

Australia 37/0   PJ Hughes 20* (44b 4x4)   JM Anderson 5.2-0-9-0

Swann to Hughes, FOUR, touch too short, bit wide as well and the bounce at the SCG means it sits up asking to be put away, Hughes does the honours, chopping behind square for four to bring up a very good 50 partnership

Australia 50/0   PJ Hughes 29* (62b 5x4)   GP Swann 0.2-0-4-0

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

Australia 61/1   UT Khawaja 6* (2b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 9.5-5-18-1

Anderson to Watson, FOUR, and finally Watson has struck his first boundary - it's taken 89 deliveries - and he clips through midwicket to a ball that strayed on to his pads

Australia 65/1   SR Watson 23* (89b 1x4)   JM Anderson 10.4-2-15-0

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

Australia 73/1   UT Khawaja 13* (7b 2x4)   CT Tremlett 10.3-5-24-1

Anderson to Watson, FOUR, shortish and wide of off, Watson cuts and it's a touch top-edgy but flies well and truly over the cordon and away to third man for a boundary

Australia 79/1   SR Watson 28* (94b 2x4)   JM Anderson 11.4-2-21-0

Anderson to Watson, FOUR, crashing pull from Watson! Beautiful shot as he gets a slightly shorter ball and lashes that over midwicket, not trying to keep it down but there is nobody in the deep

Australia 83/1   SR Watson 32* (97b 3x4)   JM Anderson 12.1-2-25-0

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   UT Khawaja 20* (31b 3x4)   CT Tremlett 14-6-32-1

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

Australia 96/1   SR Watson 38* (112b 4x4)   CT Tremlett 14.5-6-36-1

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

Australia 105/1   SR Watson 45* (125b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 9.1-2-31-0

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

Australia 120/3   UT Khawaja 33* (69b 4x4)   TT Bresnan 13.2-3-42-2

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

Australia 128/3   UT Khawaja 37* (80b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 14.3-3-47-2

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

Australia 134/3   MEK Hussey 12* (16b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 15.3-6-40-1

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   MEK Hussey 24* (46b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 17-4-51-2

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

Australia 180/6   SPD Smith 15* (49b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 21.1-8-53-1

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   MG Johnson 6* (14b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 22-8-60-1

Anderson to Johnson, FOUR, Johnson breaks the shackles now with a confident drive over the man at cover, he hasn't tried to keep that down at all, just driving hard and gets enough on it to reach the boundary

Australia 194/8   MG Johnson 10* (20b 2x4)   JM Anderson 27.2-7-52-3

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)   JM Anderson 29-7-61-3

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

Australia 213/8   BW Hilfenhaus 10* (12b 2x4)   JM Anderson 29.5-7-66-3

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   MG Johnson 24* (43b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 23-5-62-2

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

Australia 228/8   MG Johnson 29* (45b 4x4)   CT Tremlett 25.1-9-69-1

Swann to Johnson, FOUR, bang! Resounding crack reverberated all around the SCG as Johnson came down the wicket and clumped this to cow corner, flat and hard for four

Australia 254/8   MG Johnson 43* (60b 5x4)   GP Swann 12.1-4-21-1

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

Australia 278/9   BW Hilfenhaus 32* (51b 3x4 1x6)   GP Swann 15.1-4-36-1
