  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal IR Bell c Hussey b McGrath 77 126 90 9 0 85.55
29.3 oh there we go, Bell departs - McGrath perhaps held it back a touch, Bell trying to drive it over cover but his head fell back and the ball spooned to Hussey at extra cover 164/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* b Tait 5 12 8 1 0 62.50
3.2 gone! Again short from Tait, Vaughan went back and simply played it onto his stumps. 10/1
View dismissal AJ Strauss b Tait 7 11 10 0 0 70.00
5.6 gone! A mirror of Vaughan's dismissal; short of a length, Strauss back onto his stumps, he tried to cut it but with a rather ugly cross-bat and it's dragged on 24/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Clarke b Bracken 104 182 122 6 1 85.24
48.4 and he's gone this time, trying to lift Bracken for six but it's hit flat, and straight to Michael Clarke who needs not move a muscle, taking a very simple catch 240/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Gilchrist b Tait 2 3 5 0 0 40.00
30.3 lovely delivery, top class that one: Collingwood looking for the reverse swing and playing away from his body on his back foot. There's just a thin edge - but one without doubt - and Gilchrist clings on 167/4
View dismissal A Flintoff st †Gilchrist b Hogg 4 20 19 0 0 21.05
35.3 a little touch of air and the ball tempts him outside his crease. It deviates past his outside edge, turning a touch and Gilchrist completes the move with some sharp glovework and Flintoff's on his way 179/5
View dismissal RS Bopara c Hussey b Bracken 21 43 36 2 0 58.33
46.2 what a shot, but he's found Hussey at deep midwicket. It was an extraordinary flick, timing it to Hussey on the boundary who took an easy catch 230/6
View dismissal PA Nixon c Hodge b McGrath 8 14 6 0 1 133.33
49.2 and he tries to replicate the shot before, smacking a full toss but straight down Hodge's throat at long-on who swallows it with ease 246/9
View dismissal SI Mahmood c Hodge b Bracken 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
48.6 another full toss, well, what a catch! That's a marvellous catch from Hodge, Mahmood slicing it to him at backward point who tumbled to his right and took a fine catch 240/8
MS Panesar not out 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b McGrath 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
49.5 full, swinging into Anderson who completely misreads the line. McGrath roars his appeal and up goes the finger 247/10

View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Collingwood b Flintoff 27 51 37 5 0 72.97
10.6 goddim! Held that one back a touch, Gilchrist was unsure whether to go forward or back; in the end, a rather nothing shot prodded a simple catch to Paul Collingwood at point 57/1
View dismissal ML Hayden b Collingwood 41 91 50 6 0 82.00
19.1 bowled him! Or has he? Good line on off stump and just shaves the off stump. Collingwood roars an appeal - Hayden is so massive at the crease that it's quite hard to see the stumps. But Rudi confirms it with a nod of the head 89/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* run out (Collingwood) 86 133 106 11 0 81.13
40.1 from Flintoff, oh, an appeal there, hit the pad first, but then that gets forgotten as there's a run-out - the ball was dabbed down and Collingwood shied down the stumps from close range. Ponting was so out he was walking 201/3
