Broad to Gilchrist, FOUR, lovely drive, threaded between mid-off and extra cover, not a big gap but he found it and the ball scoots away

Australia 4/0   AC Gilchrist 4* (4b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.4-0-4-0

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

Australia 10/0   ML Hayden 5* (3b 1x4)   A Flintoff 0.2-0-4-0

Broad to Gilchrist, FOUR, short and wide, Gilchrist slashes and a thick top edge flies over the grasp of the leaping Prior

Australia 16/0   AC Gilchrist 10* (8b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.1-0-10-0

Broad to Hayden, FOUR, another full-bodied slash flies wide and high past Prior

Australia 21/0   ML Hayden 10* (6b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.3-0-14-0

Collingwood to Gilchrist, FOUR, slashed over backward point, in the air but well over the fielder even though he threw himself at it

Australia 36/0   AC Gilchrist 23* (17b 3x4)   PD Collingwood 0.4-0-8-0

Kirtley to Hayden, FOUR, half volley smacked dismissively back from whence it came, not quite timed as it bounced before it got to the rope

Australia 48/0   ML Hayden 15* (12b 3x4)   RJ Kirtley 0.1-0-4-0

Kirtley to Hayden, FOUR, slower ball, this time stroked between mid-off and extra cover ... that was all about timing. The first shot was Shrek, that one was Cinderella

Australia 52/0   ML Hayden 19* (13b 4x4)   RJ Kirtley 0.2-0-8-0

Kirtley to Hayden, FOUR, and again, heaved through midwicket, no grace, maximum effect

Australia 56/0   ML Hayden 23* (14b 5x4)   RJ Kirtley 0.3-0-12-0

Kirtley to Gilchrist, FOUR, leg-side half volley, picked up and flicked over short fine leg

Australia 61/0   AC Gilchrist 35* (20b 4x4 1x6)   RJ Kirtley 1-0-17-0

Mascarenhas to Hayden, FOUR, too short, too wide and pulled off the front foot behind square on the leg side

Australia 69/0   ML Hayden 30* (19b 6x4)   AD Mascarenhas 0.5-0-8-0

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

Australia 75/0   AC Gilchrist 42* (24b 5x4 1x6)   A Flintoff 2.3-0-17-0

Mascarenhas to Hayden, FOUR, a reverse sweep which he doesn't really get hold of but it goes fine off his gloves and they all count

Australia 91/1   ML Hayden 42* (27b 7x4 1x6)   AD Mascarenhas 1.3-0-19-0

Broad to Hayden, FOUR, down the track and pulled hard in front of midwicket, bringing up the hundred in dominant style

Australia 103/1   ML Hayden 50* (33b 8x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.4-0-22-0

Schofield to Ponting, FOUR, down leg, lapped round the corner through fine leg

Australia 115/1   RT Ponting 16* (13b 1x4 1x6)   CP Schofield 2.5-0-15-1

Schofield to Hayden, FOUR, typical Hayden: one step, boom; a powerful (aren't they all?) drive through mid-off

Australia 126/2   ML Hayden 58* (40b 9x4 1x6)   CP Schofield 3.1-0-21-1

Schofield to Hayden, FOUR, driven again through mid-off - nearly taking out Symonds at the other end - and the end is nigh

Australia 130/2   ML Hayden 62* (41b 10x4 1x6)   CP Schofield 3.2-0-25-1

Schofield to Hayden, FOUR, driven wider of mid-off this time

Australia 134/2   ML Hayden 66* (42b 11x4 1x6)   CP Schofield 3.3-0-29-1
