Hilfenhaus to Strauss, OUT, the variation works! Strauss falls to the straight delivery. He's played all around a full ball that swung in and just offered to move away off the pitch. It was a loose shot to get out to but Strauss had played superbly

AJ Strauss b Hilfenhaus 60 (92m 58b 8x4 1x6) SR: 103.44

England 98/1   AN Cook 31* (76b 3x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 8.2-2-35-1

Johnson to Trott, OUT, Johnson strikes! Shades of Perth anyone!? Slung full across Trott who aimed a drive but could only inside edge onto his stumps. Johnson celebrates wildly, maybe that can spark him to life

IJL Trott b Johnson 0 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 99/2   AN Cook 32* (77b 3x4)   MG Johnson 6.3-0-31-1

Johnson to Pietersen, OUT, and there's a wicket! Beer is involved, as he's taken a good catch at deep backward square. Pietersen hooked a high bouncer and didn't keep it down, Beer runs in and almost misjudges his position, but takes it in front of him and sends Pietersen on his way

KP Pietersen c Beer b Johnson 36 (87m 70b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.42

England 165/3   AN Cook 60* (128b 6x4)   MG Johnson 9.2-0-42-2

Siddle to Anderson, OUT, full and straight and bowled! Siddle does what so many bowlers haven't done in this Test - aims at the stumps and it nips away a touch off the seam, comprehensively beating Anderson, whose nightwatchman dreams must end here

JM Anderson b Siddle 7 (41m 35b 1x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

England 181/4   AN Cook 69* (154b 7x4)   PM Siddle 12.3-2-41-1

Beer to Collingwood, OUT, finally Beer has his first Test wicket and it's a sad end for Collingwood. He tried to break the shackles by hopping down the crease and aiming a smash down the ground, Beer saw his coming, threw it out wider and Collingwood had to try and fetch it. Came off a toe-end inside-edge and skewed high for mid-on to backpedal and claim the catch

PD Collingwood c Hilfenhaus b Beer 13 (68m 41b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.70

England 226/5   AN Cook 101* (203b 9x4)   MA Beer 11.3-0-35-1

Watson to Cook, OUT, Cook is gone at last! Oh, he's missed the chance for two double-centuries in the series, driving at Watson outside off and a thickish edge is taken low to the right of Hussey at gully.

AN Cook c Hussey b Watson 189 (488m 342b 16x4 0x6) SR: 55.26

England 380/6   IR Bell 63* (143b 8x4)   SR Watson 15.3-6-28-1

Johnson to Bell, OUT, that should quieten the Barmy Army! Ian Bell departs edging this behind to Clarke. Nothing dramatic in the delivery, just hung outside off stump and it kissed the edge and went through to low to Clarke at first slip. Fantastic innings from Bell but he had his fair share of luck. He leaves the ground to some cheers and plenty of boos as well

IR Bell c Clarke b Johnson 115 (296m 232b 13x4 0x6) SR: 49.56

England 487/7   MJ Prior 53* (58b 5x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 25.4-3-97-3

Johnson to Bresnan, OUT, Bresnan departs and Johnson has his fourth! Finally something for Australia to cheer. Just angling across the right hander, Bresnan popped forward to defend but it clipped the edge and went low to Clarke who held a good catch diving to his right

TT Bresnan c Clarke b Johnson 35 (116m 103b 5x4 0x6) SR: 33.98

England 589/8   MJ Prior 116* (125b 11x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 31-3-135-4

Hilfenhaus to Prior, OUT, Prior's wonderful exhibition innings ends with Prior managing, somehow, to toe-end an attempted upper-cut to a shocking short and wide delivery. Oh dear... what have we here? Bowden has called for a review unsure if it's a no-ball!... After a few looks, confirmation that Hilfenhaus did indeed have a millimetre of his boot behind the line when he landed before sliding forward. All of which means Prior's wonderful maiden Ashes hundred comes to an end

MJ Prior c †Haddin b Hilfenhaus 118 (237m 130b 11x4 1x6) SR: 90.76

England 609/9   GP Swann 14* (13b 2x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 36-6-117-2

Hilfenhaus to Tremlett, OUT, gone this time, it's all over as Tremlett gets a thin edge behind to a good ball just a touch outside off, Haddin takes the catch

CT Tremlett c †Haddin b Hilfenhaus 12 (31m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

England 644/10   GP Swann 36* (26b 3x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 38.5-7-121-3
