James Anderson43100.25230000
Stuart Broad22.448653.7910213100
3.5 to DA Warner, NOW THAT'S OUT!! Full and fast, pinned in front of middle and leg! Warner is gone, no attempt even to review - Broad has burst through in the fourth over of the morning, and Edgbaston is all over this! "Cheerio, cheerio!" they crow, as Warner grits his teeth and heads for the dressing rooms. But hang on, because Hawk-Eye now has its say: and the ball was missing leg!! So a Tale of Two Missed Reviews ends with Warner back in the hutch for spit. 2/1
7.3 to CT Bancroft, jagging from back of a length, steered to first slip! Broad has another! Bancroft prised out by one that pranced and left him, maybe could have been left on length but he'd just stroked four, was looking to get bat on ball... but could only muster a thick edge into Root's grateful paws!. 17/2
39.4 to TD Paine, short ball, Paine pulls - straight to deep square leg! Catching practice for Burns, and Paine is in a world of... well, pain! Broad pulls out his 'Oh My Broad!' celebration face, and Australia are six down, with Edgbaston doing its best to break into Tim Paine's top 15!. 112/6
39.6 to JL Pattinson, booming inswinger, obliterating the front pad! Dar gives it straight away, although it may well have been doing too much again... No thought of a review from Pattinson, however, perhaps under orders not to waste it with Smith entrenched. Broad has his fourth and Edgbaston lets rip with another throaty roar! EDIT: That was missing leg!. 112/7
80.4 to SPD Smith, bowled him! Broad has his five-for, richly deserved, but it's all about Smith... he was aiming for quick runs, trusting his eye, but this time, the late tail into the toes was too good for the honk across the line. Smith was sprinting off the pitch as soon as his timbers were rattled. He wants to get England out there pronto!. 284/10
Chris Woakes2125832.76965000
14.2 to UT Khawaja, massive appeal but Khawaja is going nowhere! England are convinced, the umpire is unmoved, England review! There was utter unanimity in the cordon, low-fives from the moment Root signalled for the second opinion, and with good reason! There's the thinnest of tickles, and Khawaja has to walk! Wow. This is getting raucous!. 35/3
32.4 to TM Head, straightening on the stumps, Head trapped in front - given! But after a chat with his partner, Head reviews. Was it high? That's about the only thing that could save him... He was stuck in the crease, thumped on the knee roll, and he's not a tall man - smashing middle and off! reckons Hawk-Eye and Head's gotta roll. 99/4
34.6 to MS Wade, swinging in, Wade now wears it on the pads... Joel Wilson thinks long and hard before keeping his hands where they are, but now England choose to review, the angle certainly looked good but height is the question. But no! Clattering into the top of middle and off, Wade's comeback is a brief one! And another on-field decision is overturned. 105/5
Ben Stokes1817714.27729020
43.6 to PJ Cummins, celebrappeal from Stokes! And little wonder! Outswinger, outswinger, outswinger, inswinger! Cummins is done like an Isle of Man Kipper, complete with comfy ice-pillow, as he raises his bat high to be thumped plumb on the knee-roll. Golly, Australia have been as abject as some of the umpiring today! Smith excepted of course ... what can he scrape together now ...?. 122/8
Moeen Ali1334213.23615100
67.2 to PM Siddle, grips and clips the inside edge - straight to short leg! Buttler snaps it up low to the ground, a simple chance but it came at him quickly, and Moeen has done the job. That's the end of Siddle's rearguard, though he walks off to warm applause from the Australians in the ground after contributing a fine hand. 210/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Pat Cummins3398432.5416012000
65.4 to JC Buttler, swerving late, finds the edge - brilliantly taken at third slip! Cummins rips out Buttler, as Australia continue their surge with this cherry bomb in hand! Testing line, 87mph and nipping enough as Buttler tried to close the face on it, Bancroft flung himself low to his right to claim an excellent catch!. 194/4
97.1 to BA Stokes, short and wide, Stokes cuts... oh, he's nicked it! Stands and shakes his head, the Australians celebrates as one; bit of tepid dismissal, to a ball Stokes will feel should have disappeared through backward point. But that's the breakthrough, and Australia still (just) in front!. 282/5
129.6 to SCJ Broad, the short ball does the trick! Broad wasn't comfortable with the angle into the body, a limp flick off the hip as Cummins peppers the ribs again, and it loops tantalisingly down to fine leg. The stand is broken, in the one way that Broad really doesn't fancy any more. 365/9
James Pattinson2738223.0311810010
7.2 to JJ Roy, rising sharply, fenced low to second slip! That's what Pattinson is about, and he's the man to break through inside the opening half hour... Good ball, pace and bounce on a line that Roy had to play, and Smith was waiting to gleefully snap up the deflection! First Test wicket since 2016 for Patto. 22/1
62.1 to JL Denly, pitched up, angling in and struck in front - given! Denly chats to Burns, but suggests he hasn't hit it and realising he was slap bang in front of his poles, heads off. No swing this time, which perhaps foxed Denly into playing around the ball, but it's all the same to Pattinson!. 189/3
Peter Siddle2785221.921365000
49.6 to JE Root, a wonderful one-handed snaffle! That's outstanding from Siddle, in his followthrough, stretching out his right mitt and scrumping it from the tree. Root was too early on a full-length drive, popping a fast flat chance straight back down the pitch, and that's the opening that Australia so desperately needed!. 154/2
105.5 to JM Bairstow, slashed to first slip and England are in tatters! Back of a length, a loose half-cocked waft, not a cut, not a drive, not really a shot at all... A simple waist-high catch to Warner's right and this Test has gathered pace somewhat!. 300/8
Nathan Lyon43.5811232.5520012101
104.1 to RJ Burns, finds the edge with the quicker ball! That was superb from Lyon, round the wicket, such a tight line to the left-hander, on a full length, and speedy rip off the deck, straightening into Burns' defensive poke, for Paine to do the rest. Excruciatingly tight to the front line, but he's okay. The end of a monster from Burns... but England haven't got the lead they'd have hoped for just yet!. 296/6
104.6 to MM Ali, left alone and Lyon plucks out the off stump! That's a terrible misjudgement from Moeen, playing for turn from round the wicket, getting the straight-oner, and a satisfying 'kerplunk' of uprooted stump tells Australia the rest. They are right back in this Test now!. 300/7
135.5 to JM Anderson, honked up in the air! A simple catch for Cummins, running in at mid-on to gather the slog sweep, and Australia's long stint in the field is done.... 374/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Stuart Broad2229114.138911210
2.6 to DA Warner, huge appeal from Bairstow and the slips! Broad isn't so sure, but the cordon is adamant there was a noise as Warner flirted outside off! It's gone to a review and the crowd like what they've seen already! Almost off the back of the bat as Warner tried to leave that uncomfortable kicking back-of-a-length, and that's 450 wickets for Broad, and a massive one at that!. 13/1
Chris Woakes1314613.53566010
85.1 to SPD Smith, HE'S OUT! It's the new ball, it's movement through the air, it's that channel outside off ... everything England knew about Smith's vulnerabilities, but haven't managed to locate until now! Late swing, on a full length, drawing the drive, Bairstow snaffles the snick, and suddenly England have the man they so desperately needed. But my word, What. An. Innings. What a Test!. 331/5
Moeen Ali29113024.489510102
9.1 to CT Bancroft, gottim, tucked straight to short leg! Steps forward and then goes back, just gets a tickle on to the pads and it lobs up for a simple catch... Moeen strikes in his second over, Bancroft uncertain about his method against spin and gone early once again. 27/2
99.4 to TD Paine, bowled him through the gate! Classical offspinner's dismissal - do Australia have one of those? - ripping back out of the footmarks to squeeze between bat and pad and hit off stump between the eyes! Some succour for Moeen, Australia seven down. 409/7
Joe Root1215004.16447000
Ben Stokes2258533.869710114
18.2 to UT Khawaja, hurtling back in, grazes the inside edge - gone, Stokes strikes! Some extra juice, bit of seam movement and Khawaja's punchy knock is over. Scrambled seam and it went like a fast legcutter, audible nick and Joel Wilson had no trouble with this one. 75/3
52.6 to TM Head, slashed outside off, and there's the breakthrough! Cunning from Stokes, it's a slower ball, banged into the pitch, luring the cut, but the ball was never quite there. A good stoop from Bairstow behind the stumps, as the ball was dying all the way. The end of a crucial hand from Head, but he's given England a glimmer. 205/4
98.2 to MS Wade, banged in, Wade roundhouses a pull... straight to deep backward square! Wade falls looking to push on, a fine innings in the circumstances. Muted celebrations from Stokes, though the crowd liked it. 407/6

Peter Siddle1222802.33583000
Nathan Lyon2054962.45925000
21.2 to JJ Roy, oh my word... Bowled on the charge! Lyon has his first and Roy is sent packing after making a complete misjudgment of which ball to attack! Maybe the ODI mindset was the problem... Gallumphed down and aimed a mighty heave over the leg side but he was nowhere near the pitch, left a massive gap for the ball to turn through; and then turned on his heel abruptly to leave the field, as if realising his mistake. 60/2
25.5 to JL Denly, spinning, loops up of the front pad, taken at short leg! Aleem Dar gives it but Denly decides to review after consultation with his partner. He seemed to be saying he didn't feel any contact, but UltraEdge offers a different view! Clear ripple on the snickometer as the ball passed the inside shoulder of the bat. Lyon sinks his teeth into England again!. 80/3
29.1 to JE Root, jammed off the inside edge, snagged by Bancroft under the helmet! No need to review those! Root punches his bat in anguish, as Australia's players engage in a victory waltz behind him! What a huge wicket that is... Ball turning in as Root pushed in front of his pad, squirted off the bat, right into the waiting paws!. 85/4
37.1 to BA Stokes, edged, gone, England are a rabble! Sizzling spin and bounce, dipping on off stump, biting the pitch, snicking the edge, a gleeful grab from Paine, and one ball after Cummins reached his 100th Test wicket, Lyon trumps him with his 350th!. 97/7
47.3 to MM Ali, gottim, Lyon gobbles up mo mo Mo! Ninth time in Tests, so bunny it's not funny. Lyon bags his fifth and Australia are just a quick two-step away. Big spin from middle and leg, thick-edged propping forwards and snaffled at gully. 136/8
47.4 to SCJ Broad, gone, first-baller for Broad! Six for Garry! Flighted, turning on the stumps, Broad lunges at it and a fat edge plops into the hands of slip. 136/9
James Pattinson812903.62396001
Pat Cummins11.333242.78576001
9.5 to RJ Burns, pops off the glove, loops to gully! Indecision on the back foot, or halfway back, as his first movement was onto the front foot, Cummins finds some extra zip off the deck, slams the gloves, and Australia have their opening, a simple take with fingers cupped to the sky!. 19/1
32.6 to JC Buttler, bowled him! Oh wow, that's the line, but this time just a fraction shorter, Buttler caught in no-man's land when he should have been on the front foot again, and the off stump has been splattered! A huge, huge blow straight after lunch... who's going to hang around now?. 85/5
36.6 to JM Bairstow, short again, and that's been given in the slips! Surely another shocker, that must have come off Bairstow's body?... but... hang on, has it flicked the webbing of the glove? Joel Wilson has been vindicated! Bairstow reviewed, thinking that had come off his wrist onto midriff, and away to third slip ... but a ripple of fabric proves otherwise!. 97/6
52.3 to CR Woakes, short but with pace off, and Woakes can only steer it limply to slip! Done by the slower bouncer, contorting into all sorts of positions but in the end popping a simple catch up off the splice... All of which means, Australia win by 251 runs, exorcising their Birmingham hoodoo in style!. 146/10
