James Anderson1016316.30308110
29.1 to MEK Hussey, gone! Full and Anderson finds a hint of swing back in to the left-hander to beat an airy flick to leg and clatter into the stumps! Was that swing? He sent down a cross-seam delivery but the ball definitely jagged in to Hussey after pitching. Either way, he's gone and Australia are tottering now.... 118/5
Tim Bresnan904404.88336010
Stuart Broad1004444.40323000
10.3 to TD Paine, gone! That's a strangle down the leg side as Paine gets an edge trying to work the ball away and a simple catch to Kieswetter to give Broad his 100th ODI wicket...a timely breakthrough for England, just as Broad managed two days ago. 51/1
14.4 to RT Ponting, gone! Broad strikes again and it's the big wicket of Ponting. Back of a length from Broad and the Australia captain pushed forward outside off, getting a thick edge which carries at chest height to Kieswetter. 67/2
16.6 to MJ Clarke, gone! The change works, another short ball from Broad, Clarke was up on his toes but couldn't control it, the ball balloons off the glove straight to Swann! He was put in an awkward position and the bottom hand came off the bat, easy catch to short leg. 77/3
45.5 to SPD Smith, gone this time! Well, it was an energetic innings from Smith, but he's played too early at this one as he tried to pick the ball up over the leg side. The ball took the leading edge and looped up quite high but not very far, and Collingwood at cover takes an easy catch. 202/6
Luke Wright903814.22314001
21.3 to SR Watson, gone! The short ball works again! Watson had played so well until this shot - he went for an ungainly front-foot pull when he should have been back, the top edge rockets straight up, Kieswetter calls for it and takes a good, sliding catch. Australia pegged back once again, and after such a good start they're looking decidedly vulnerable now. 94/4

Doug Bollinger1024634.60424222
2.2 to C Kieswetter, gone! Bollinger strikes as Kieswetter comes down the pitch and gets a clunky bottom edge through to Paine, the ball barely carries but the keeper makes the take. 23/1
36.2 to PD Collingwood, gone! Just when I was saying that the batsmen had settled in and Australia were without a strike bowler, Bollinger charges in and hits the stumps! The ball was outside off and Collingwood went for a leaden-footed pushed to the off side, little inside edge and into the stumps. Still, he's probably done enough to close down the game. 192/4
40.2 to EJG Morgan, gone! Test match bowling does for Eoin Morgan, as Bollinger spears one down back of a length just around off stump. The ball rose quite sharply off a length, took the edge near the shoulder of the bat, and went through to Paine. Great piece of bowling, do Australia have a sniff of an unlikely series-levelling win now?. 211/6
Clint McKay9.206006.42354303
James Hopes503016.00144000
39.4 to LJ Wright, gone this time! Poor shot selection there, he had done the hard work with the two boundaries and was just looking to do too much with this ball. It was on a length and straight, coming in off the seam, and he tried to run it to third man though the ball was practically angling in to the hip. Inside edge was the result, and the ball ricochets onto the stumps. 211/5
Nathan Hauritz1005615.60242010
19.3 to AJ Strauss, gone! Strauss shimmies down the track, not quite getting to the pitch but trying to send the ball to long on. Instead, he pops the simplest of caught-and-bowled chances back to Hauritz, who gratefully accepts. Australia are cock-a-hoop, they need to keep chipping away at England!. 109/3
Steven Smith804015.00244000
14.6 to KP Pietersen, what a catch! Pietersen came down the track and tried to hammer Smith away to midwicket again, but in the air this time. Ponting was in position close at midwicket but that looked to have cleared him ... until he leapt to pluck it out of the air one-handed. I think he even surprised himself with that one. Rolling back the years, Punter!. 91/2
