Finn to Watson, no run, Finn goes really full again, Watson crunches it back over the bowler's head on the bounce but it's collected safely by mid-off


Finn to Watson, 1 run, this one is driven harder along the ground past the bowler but it's only a single as Pietersen at mid-off does well to dive across and save this


Finn to Haddin, no run, good ball - Finn goes for the yorker with the angle in to Haddin and there's half an appeal for lbw but that was sliding down leg


Finn to Haddin, 1 wide, strays down leg now and that one's a wide

Australia 33/0   ST Finn 1-0-2-0

Finn to Watson, no run, there's an lbw shout as Finn angles it in to Watson, but Rod Tucker isn't interested. It looked to be sliding down leg but Strauss wants a review. Hmm, it's hit him in line but he's quite a way forward, and the replays confirm that is missing leg. So England have lost one of their two reviews.


Finn to Watson, 1 run, Finn tries for the yorker again but it's just a touch half-volleyish and Watson drives a single wide of mid-off


Finn to Haddin, no run, this one's a very good yorker - Haddin can do nowt but keep it out

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, ah, Finn gives Haddin just a little width outside off and Haddin backs off a touch to slash a cut over point, really well played

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, fullish ball and Haddin tries to muscle this drive over mid-off, Pietersen is back on the circle and it's just gone safely wide of him in the air - it still wasn't timed that well but Pietersen's chase can't cut it off - he was going to dive and then decided not to


Finn to Haddin, no run, pushed away to the off side


Finn to Haddin, OUT, well, Brad Haddin's walking around in the crease has cost him now, and he's been bowled through his legs!

BJ Haddin b Finn 37 (64m 52b 7x4 0x6) SR: 71.15


Finn to Clarke, 1 wide, bouncer to begin with, and Prior does very well to leap up and prevent this running away for five wides - it'll just be the one wide
