Sidebottom to Clarke, 1 wide, poor start from Sidebottom to Clarke, well down the leg side and a gentle wide


Sidebottom to Clarke, 1 run, gets his line better this time, fuller and on middle, Clarke flicks it round the corner to fine leg to get off the mark


Sidebottom to Clarke, 1 wide, another one shoved in down the leg side, Clarke attempted to fiddle it away, but misses and it's another wide


Sidebottom to Clarke, no run, good finish to the over, full and straight, Clarke defends back to the bowler, who fields in his follow through

Australia 6/1   MJ Clarke 1* (2b)

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, Bresnan really holding his nerve here, banging it in just short of a length on a good line, and Clarke defends


Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, Warner gone this time! England on fire, Clarke pushes a good-length ball to cover, and then attempts a single, Warner tares down but Lumb swooped in and under-armed his throw on to the stumps at the strikers end to leave Warner well short of his ground

DA Warner run out 2 (11m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 7/2   MJ Clarke 1* (4b)

Sidebottom to Clarke, 1 run, dug in shortish again, not many pitched up, but the pitch is zipping through, and Clarke nurdles it down to short fine leg for a quick single

Australia 10/3   MJ Clarke 2* (5b)

Broad to Clarke, no run, starts well enough, fullish and on off stump, Clarke very positively strides into the ball and drives firmly to cover


Broad to Clarke, 1 run, shorter this time, angled into the body, Clarke turns it to midwicket easily enough for a calm single


Broad to Clarke, 2 runs, very nicely played by Clarke here, another shortish ball and he was waiting on the back foot and picked a gap in front of midwicket to push for a couple


Broad to Clarke, 1 wide, this was a real short ball, zipped over the crouching Clarke, given a wide. Predictably, Broad moans a touch, but it seemed fair enough


Broad to Clarke, no run, lucky this for Broad. Dug in short, Clarke pulls but picks out the one fielder - short fine leg


Broad to Clarke, 1 run, oh dear! Push and go again from Clarke and almost trouble. Clarke called Hussey through for a single that wasn't there, Lumb ran in from cover and once again flicked an under-arm throw, this time though, he missed the stumps. Would have been out

Australia 16/3   MJ Clarke 6* (10b)

Sidebottom to Clarke, FOUR, well, finally, the first four of the match, short and into Clarke's body, this is a bit of a gimme, he turns away behind him for an easy boundary


Sidebottom to Clarke, 1 run, better ball this time, on and around off stump, Clarke stands tall and pushes towards point for an easy single


Sidebottom to Clarke, no run, good line from Sidebottom, back of a length, but just outside off, Clarke guides it to point

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, Bresnan back into the attack, Clarke greets him with a nurdle to leg side for one


Bresnan to Clarke, 2 runs, angled too far down leg this time, Clarke carefully pulls it down to a sliding deep square fielder who keeps it to a couple


Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, good ball this, back of a length and Clarke stands tall and pushes towards point for a single


Bresnan to Clarke, FOUR, not a great ball this and Clarke punishes him, short but slower, sits up for Clarke who pulls past mid on for the second boundary of the innings

Yardy to Clarke, no run, pushed through this time, really quite quickly, Clarke hurries into a back foot defence


Yardy to Clarke, 2 runs, touch too much width this time, Clarke is back and cutting in a flash, past point for a couple


Yardy to Clarke, 1 run, Clarke using his feet well, walking up the wicket and turning this to deep midwicket for one

Australia 43/3   MJ Clarke 27* (26b 2x4)

Swann to Clarke, OUT, brilliant from Collingwood! Fantastic catch! Swann flighted it up, and beat Clarke in the air as he skipped down the wicket, in the end it's chipped into what looked a vacant straight midwicket, but Collingwood dived to his left from short midwicket, two-handed and plucked it out the air

MJ Clarke c Collingwood b Swann 27 (35m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 45/4   MJ Clarke 27 (27b 2x4)
