MATCH NOTES
General
  • Rain and bad light interruptions extend play to 7.10pm. Dean Headley warned for running on the pitch. Steve Waugh's 13th Test century, his fourth against England and his first at Old Trafford. When Warne dismised Caddick he had his 249th Test wicket, thereby overtaking Richie Benaud as the most successful leg-spin bowler in Test history. (At 249 he is the 3rd most successful Test bowler for Australia and equal 18th overall). Steve Waugh's 14th Test century. The first instance of twin centuries in a Test by an Australian since DM Jones (v Pakistan, Adelaide 1989-90); the first instance in an Australia-England test since both AR Morris and DCS Compton (Adelaide, 1946-47). The 45th instance of twin centuries in all Test matches.
