Johnson to Cook, OUT, cleaned him up! Johnson on the charge again, beaten Cook for pace past the outside edge and Cook was nowhere near it. It might have straightened a fraction from an off stump line but Cook has simply been done for sheer pace at over 90mph, didn't get forward enough, tried in vain to get the bat down on it but seem to be aiming at mid-on and missed it completely

AN Cook b Johnson 3 (13m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

England 9/1   MA Carberry 4* (6b 1x4)   MG Johnson 1.4-0-5-1

Lyon to Root, OUT, top-edged sweep and find deep square leg can you believe it? All the hard work from Root and he's fallen to a very weak dismissal, that is a cheap surrender and Australia have been gifted the opening breakthrough, what a waste for England. Root was sweeping from well outside off, he was swinging hard and looked like he was going for slog sweep but a bit of bounce - that Lyon often gets - is his downfall

JE Root c Rogers b Lyon 15 (114m 80b 1x4 0x6) SR: 18.75

England 57/2   MA Carberry 36* (91b 6x4)   NM Lyon 7-1-24-1

Siddle to Pietersen, OUT, Pietersen takes a little step down the pitch and clips straight to short midwicket and again Pietersen falls right into the trap. George Bailey juggled the chance but held on well and that is the second very weak dismissal this morning. Very very poor indeed from such a great player, flicking right into the trap and now England are in trouble

KP Pietersen c Bailey b Siddle 4 (19m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 66/3   MA Carberry 41* (106b 7x4)   PM Siddle 6.3-2-10-1

Watson to Carberry, OUT, wow! Out of nowhere Carberry has gone! We were one ball away from a fifth straight maiden over and Carberry gets a short one from Watson and goes for the pull, he absolutely creamed it out of the middle of the bat but Warner at forward square leg has thrust the hands down and somehow taken that in his left hand alone

MA Carberry c Warner b Watson 60 (202m 144b 10x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

England 111/4   IR Bell 25* (32b 2x4 2x6)   SR Watson 3-3-0-1

Johnson to Stokes, OUT, full at the pads, huge appeal for lbw, not out given, Erasmus reckoned Stokes hit this, it rebounds to point, there's a run taken and the throws ends up going for four overthrows but Clarke reviews the lbw call. Johnson is mighty close on the no-ball but just okay. Replays suggest the delivery was pad first, Stokes hit his pad with the bat and Hawk Eye has it...crashing into middle and leg and Stokes is gone. Johnson quick and straight and once again too good for an England batsman. Nothing Stokes would have ever faced before this bowling. Like Cook, he was simply done for pace

BA Stokes lbw b Johnson 1 (19m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33

England 117/5   IR Bell 29* (45b 3x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 13.1-7-24-2

Johnson to Prior, OUT, well four balls is all Prior has lasted because he's felt for one outside off stump and nicked it behind. Two rough shorties followed by one pitched up sliding across him, Prior played forward and followed it outside off, getting a thin edge through to Haddin who claimed the catch down low

MJ Prior c †Haddin b Johnson 0 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 117/6   IR Bell 29* (45b 3x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 13.5-7-24-3

Johnson to Broad, OUT, haha cleaned him up! What an over from Johnson. Fabulous fast bowling and that is surely one of the great Ashes overs. Fast on a length, Broad stepped across to try and flick to leg but has lost his leg stump. Remarkable stuff, a triple wicket maiden from Johnson! Again, the pace is simple too much for England

SCJ Broad b Johnson 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 117/7   IR Bell 29* (45b 3x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 14-8-24-4

Johnson to Swann, OUT, full and wide, Swann swings at it, gets a thick outside edge and Clarke takes a superb catch high over his right shoulder, a fine grab and Johnson has a five-for again. Swann was not going to sit around waiting for a ball to get him out, he chases a full wide one, didn't get his foot right out to meet it and nicks off. Another superb Australian catch

GP Swann c Clarke b Johnson 7 (16m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 135/8   IR Bell 40* (61b 5x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 15.5-8-36-5

Johnson to Anderson, OUT, full and straight and knocks out middle stump! This is fast becoming one of the great fast bowling spells. Full, fast and furious that pierces the gap between bat and pad and takes the top of middle stump. Absolutely perfect from Johnson and he need only look at Anderson this time

JM Anderson b Johnson 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 135/9   IR Bell 40* (61b 5x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 16-8-36-6

Johnson to Panesar, OUT, gone! Johnson gets the job done immediately! Quick, accurate and takes Panesar's off stump. A little inside edge onto the pad and then it clips back into the stumps and England are all out for 172

MS Panesar b Johnson 2 (60m 35b 0x4 0x6) SR: 5.71

England 172/10   IR Bell 72* (106b 9x4 4x6)   MG Johnson 17.2-8-40-7
