Anderson to White, OUT, Anderson strikes back for England and the see-saw battle continues. Good length delivery and this one nipped back in off the deck. White plays across the line and the ball thuds into the pad. Loud shout and on this occasion the umpire adjudicates in favour of the bowler.

CL White lbw b Anderson 5 (19m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Lewis to Clarke, OUT, and he strikes! good length and drifting down the leg side, Clarke follows the ball in a effort to clip it down to fine leg but fails to make solid contact. Not sure if there was any wood involved, hard to say from here. The keeper and the bowler were convinced and so was the umpire. That's the wicket they were looking for - Australia five down.

MJ Clarke c †Nixon b Lewis 36 (91m 62b 3x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

Lewis to Symonds, OUT, Revenge! Lewis sends Symonds packing. Again full and outside off stump line, looked pretty similar to the previous delivery but a tad wider, and Symonds throws his bat at it and gets a thick edge. Nixon goes airborne and takes it in front of first slip. Surely, hopefully for all of you out there desperate for a contest, game on!

A Symonds c †Nixon b Lewis 4 (11m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Lewis to Hayden, OUT, Oh ho! Hayden falls. Again that walk down the track, this time its fatal. Lewis drags back the length and hurls it at the body, Hayden pulls it to long leg into the waiting palms of Anderson. Three down! Game on?

ML Hayden c Anderson b Lewis 19 (45m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.35

Anderson to Hodge, OUT, Hodge's one-day travails continue. Full and on the middle and leg, it holds its line a touch, Hodge looks to turn it the on side, gets a outer edge and it flies to point where Darlymple takes it right in front of his face. Australia lose their second wicket. No Ricky Ponting today. Under slight pressure

BJ Hodge c Dalrymple b Anderson 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Lewis to Gilchrist, OUT, Anderson takes a very good running catch at long leg. It was banged in slightly short of length, on the middle stump line, Gilchrist goes for the pull, ends up skying it high and Anderson runs to his right and holds on to a smart catch.

AC Gilchrist c Anderson b Lewis 8 (24m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
