1.1

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, full (81mph) and it completely deceives Hayden who shapes to thump it out of the ground

1.2

Flintoff to Hayden, FOUR, full and this time Hayden hammers the ball between Flintoff and mid-on, no real effort but he's such a big man that it races away

1.3

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 run, mid-on drops a little deeper so Hayden pushes to him and ambles the single

1.4

Flintoff to Gilchrist, no run, fuller and outside off, Gilchrist leans back, swipes, and misses

1.5

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 1 run, defensive push towards mid-on, Gilchrist then spots the fielder is deeper and slightly slow off the mark and so is able to sprint the single

1.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, driven hard back to the bowler, the ball bounces kindly allowing Flintoff to collect in his follow through

Australia 12/0   A Flintoff 1-0-6-0
3.1

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, full and Hayden decides very late to leave the ball and does so with a twirl of the body in the crease

3.2

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 leg bye, dug in and Hayden looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the shoulder for his pains

3.3

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 2 runs, pulled from off stump over midwicket, the ball lands five yards in from the rope and plugs. Tiger Woods would have been proud of that backspin

3.4

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 2 runs, another mistimed pull, it hits him on the body and trundles fine on the leg side, Broad has a long way to get round the retrieve

3.5

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 1 run, an uppish slash which falls four or five yards short of Schofield at third man

3.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, Hayden leans back and tries to hammer the ball through the covers, gets a thick leading edge and it bobbles back to the bowler

Australia 28/0   A Flintoff 2-0-11-0
7.1

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 1 run, backfoot drive into the deep cover region

7.2

Flintoff to Hayden, 1 run, full-bloodied off drive to Broad at long-off

7.3

Flintoff to Gilchrist, FOUR, almost a yorker, a bit too full, Gilchrist gets a thick inside edge and the ball zips past his leg stump and fine for four

7.4

Flintoff to Gilchrist, no run, right up once more, wide of off stump, Gilchrist can only squeeze it to backward point

7.5

Flintoff to Gilchrist, 3 runs, much the same spot from Flintoff but Gilchrist works it finer and that takes it past the fielder

7.6

Flintoff to Hayden, no run, Flintoff perseveres with that line and it works as Hayden can only jam down on it to backward point

Australia 78/0   A Flintoff 3-0-20-0
