Australia v England

Australia won by 150 runs

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

1.6

Broad to Rogers, OUT, full and on the pads and flicked in front of midwicket, Rogers calls... but he won't make it to the other end! A direct hit from Anderson and Australia are one down! That was really smart work from Anderson, who moved a few paces to his left from mid-on, clean pick up and throw at the non-striker's end - there may have been a moment's hesitation between the batsmen and Rogers was well short. Is that the moment of inspiration that England need?

CJL Rogers run out 11 (11m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 122.22

Australia 13/1   DA Warner 2* (3b)   SCJ Broad 1-0-11-0

10.3

Broad to Watson, OUT, pushes with hard hands, edged and gone, Swann plucks the ball from above his head in the slips! Broad has another wicket, his 12th of the series. It was just the perfect length, drawing Watson forward and then surprising him with the bounce. Watto hung his bat out, rather, the bottom hand coming off the bat as he tried to drive... and England are cock-a-hoop

SR Watson c Swann b Broad 18 (43m 29b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.06

Australia 52/2   DA Warner 22* (25b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-22-1

22.2

Swann to Clarke, OUT, comes forward, looking to attack immediately... but Clarke has picked out short midwicket, Cook diving to take a low catch! That could be a huge wicket, five minutes or so before lunch and it's one 100 man doing for another, Cook snapped up the chance, Clarke wasn't quite to the pitch and the bat turned in his hands. "Catch!" was the shout from Swann and his captain made no mistake

MJ Clarke c Cook b Swann 24 (58m 44b 5x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 106/3   DA Warner 48* (52b 7x4 1x6)   GP Swann 0.2-0-1-1

30.4

Swann to Warner, OUT, Goddim! Bit of width, Warner cuts and sends a loopy top edge straight down the gullet of Carberry at backward point! That's a fire sale, a give-away wicket from Warner to England, who were striving for some control and have picked up Australia's top-scorer in the process. It wasn't really short enough to cut, the bat came down at an angle and there was no mistake with the catch this time from Carberry, in a very similar position to when he grassed Haddin a week ago

DA Warner c Carberry b Swann 60 (143m 77b 8x4 1x6) SR: 77.92

Australia 129/4   SPD Smith 11* (25b 1x4 1x6)   GP Swann 4.4-0-17-2

34.3

Broad to Bailey, OUT, and Bailey falls taking on the short ball, hooking to deep backward square where Pietersen clings on as he tumbles backwards! Broad has bounced him out, he tried to pull from outside off, was never in control of the shot - and Broad is bowling at some pace - it flew high into the clear blue Perth sky and came down with the batsman's number on it. England are in clover!

GJ Bailey c Pietersen b Broad 7 (17m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

Australia 143/5   SPD Smith 18* (36b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 8.3-1-48-2

70.5

Stokes to Haddin, OUT, short and pulled and misues it to midwicket and England have a long-awaited breakthrough, mighty relief for them, they check the no-ball and once again Stokes is ever-so-close to the Popping crease but he's got a minuscule of a boot behind the line. It was banged in by Stokes, Haddin was hurried into pulling and spooned it to Anderson who got down to take the catch sliding forward

BJ Haddin c Anderson b Stokes 55 (152m 100b 5x4 2x6) SR: 55.00

Australia 267/6   SPD Smith 85* (154b 11x4 2x6)   BA Stokes 10.5-2-36-1

88.2

Broad to Johnson, OUT, super ball, bounce and movement and Prior snaffles the edge - Johnson vanquished first up! That's the perfect start for England, no runs added and the dangerous Johnson back in the hutch. They said the pitch would be quicker today and we might just seen evidence of that, a length ball fizzing off the pitch from middle and leg to brush the shoulder of the bat... Though Mitch might not mind seeing that, either

MG Johnson c †Prior b Broad 39 (78m 62b 6x4 0x6) SR: 62.90

Australia 326/7   SPD Smith 103* (197b 13x4 2x6)   SCJ Broad 17.2-1-78-3

91.5

Anderson to Smith, OUT, this cuts through Smith as he props forward, there's a thin sound, Anderson goes up immediately... Umpire Marais Erasmus isn't convinced but England ask to review straight away. Smith stood his ground, unruffled, but we're going to find out what technology thinks; there may be a tiny mark on Hot Spot, quite faint, on the inside of the bat, Real Time Snicko now comes to the party and suggests a little scrape of wood too... Smith isn't happy but the decision has been overturned, he's gone for Nelson

SPD Smith c †Prior b Anderson 111 (295m 208b 14x4 2x6) SR: 53.36

Australia 338/8   PM Siddle 4* (10b 1x4)   JM Anderson 19.5-5-52-1

95.5

Anderson to Harris, OUT, pushes at a length ball in the channel and this one goes to hand, caught in the gully! Harris is cut down before he can do too much damage, another wicket for Anderson and England are close to rounding up the innings

RJ Harris c Root b Anderson 12 (22m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.15

Australia 354/9   PM Siddle 8* (15b 2x4)   JM Anderson 21.5-5-56-2

103.3

Bresnan to Siddle, OUT, holding its line outside off, Siddle dangles the bat and there's a tickle on it, an audible nick and visible deflection through to the keeper. Bresnan gets his first wicket, ending a sticky little 31-run association between Siddle and Lyon

PM Siddle c †Prior b Bresnan 21 (78m 36b 3x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

Australia 385/10   NM Lyon 17* (25b 4x4)   TT Bresnan 23.3-4-81-1
