  • Overs 1-50

  • Overs 101-150

Anderson to Warner, OUT, full just outside off, Warner drives very loosely at it and gets a thin nick to the keeper. Pretty ordinary stroke and a tame dismissal but reward for some decent early overs, the ball has swung and England have put it in the right place. Warner had been a touch edgy and tried to put bat and ball but simply didn't move his feet and got a regulation edge to Prior

DA Warner c †Prior b Anderson 6 (20m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 11/1   CJL Rogers 1* (15b)   JM Anderson 2.2-1-2-1

Swann to Rogers, OUT, edged and taken at first slip on the back foot, a little turn takes a thick outside edge and it's very well taken down low from Trott to his left-hand side, smart grab. Just a little bit of turn decieved Rogers who was playing tentatively from the crease, it was a similar dismissal to Durham and the sixth time in the series Rogers has fallen to Swann this series

CJL Rogers c Trott b Swann 23 (135m 100b 3x4 0x6) SR: 23.00

Australia 118/2   SR Watson 84* (89b 15x4 1x6)   GP Swann 11.1-4-20-1

Anderson to Clarke, OUT, good length, forward press and Clarke is slow on the stroke, too slow, it comes off the pad and ricochets into the top of off stump. Anderson strikes again with a fine delivery that just shaped in slightly and beat Clarke's inside edge, it flicked the top of the bat but before they could go up for an appeal, the off stump had been pegged back

MJ Clarke b Anderson 7 (46m 39b 0x4 0x6) SR: 17.94

Australia 144/3   SR Watson 98* (111b 16x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 7.5-1-18-2

Broad to Watson, OUT, bouncer, another fierce lifter and hooked powerfully, out towards deep backward square... where Kevin Pietersen dives to take a quite brilliant catch! Broad has winkled out Watto - although only by a few millimetres of rubber after they check on the no-ball - and a superb innings comes to an end. It's not a double but definitely a daddy and Watson can walk off plenty satisfied. He's played the short ball well but just couldn't quite keep the shot down this time

SR Watson c Pietersen b Broad 176 (339m 247b 25x4 1x6) SR: 71.25

Australia 289/4   SPD Smith 66* (131b 9x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 17.1-3-60-1

Anderson to Siddle, OUT, bowled him with a beaut, Anderson has Siddle again! And just as Australia's nightwatchman was approaching his highest score of the summer... The ball has been shaping nicely for Anderson, this was speared on in off, appeared to be drifting on to the pads and Siddle went to whip it to leg, too late noticed the ball curling away to clip the top of off

PM Siddle b Anderson 23 (35m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 85.18

Australia 320/5   SPD Smith 74* (149b 10x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 20.4-4-59-3

Trott to Haddin, OUT, full ball a foot outside off, Haddin tries to stay leg side of it and drags it on. No really the right ball to try to dab away off the back foot because it was too full. He didn't even try to play it like a late cut, which might have been better, thick bottom edge into the base of middle and off stumps

BJ Haddin b Trott 30 (88m 57b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Australia 385/6   SPD Smith 101* (201b 14x4 2x6)   IJL Trott 1.5-0-8-1

Woakes to Faulkner, OUT, goes hard again, top-edged ... and Trott takes a super catch running round from deep backward square! Chris Woakes has his first Test wicket, fellow debutant James Faulkner the victim - decent little cameo, playing for the team but got a bit cramped for room trying to hit across the line

JP Faulkner c Trott b Woakes 23 (28m 21b 4x4 0x6) SR: 109.52

Australia 422/7   SPD Smith 115* (220b 15x4 2x6)   CR Woakes 22.3-7-80-1

Swann to Starc, OUT, gives it a bit of air, tossed up on middle and off, and bowled him! Like Faulkner, Starc perishes in the line of duty, trying to hit Swann into Pimlico but done by the flight, it dropped under the bat, straightened and felled timber

MA Starc b Swann 13 (15m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

Australia 446/8   SPD Smith 126* (229b 16x4 2x6)   GP Swann 30.2-4-73-2

Anderson to Harris, OUT, sliced, high into the air, and Anderson claims it, sprawling forward to complete the dismissal off his own bowling! Harris got right under the ball, swinging across the line, the ball upwards, descending towards mid-off, where Anderson caught up with and caught hold of it to end a spirited bash from the No. 10

RJ Harris c & b Anderson 33 (31m 27b 1x4 2x6) SR: 122.22

Australia 491/9   SPD Smith 137* (240b 16x4 2x6)   JM Anderson 29.4-4-94-4
