James Anderson1016616.60309030
42.1 to RT Ponting, well, how about that. Powerplay has gone wrong straight away! Ponting aimed a drive over cover but couldn't quite time it and instead chipped it firmly to Strauss at extra cover who leapt and took the chance.. 228/3
Tim Bresnan915215.77349010
9.1 to TD Paine, all over for Paine! He's struggled today and it was a tame end. He tried to work it into the leg side, got a leading edge and looped very gently to Morgan at cover. Bresnan has his first wicket in the series!. 33/1
Stuart Broad1004614.60334110
47.2 to CL White, gone this time! White couldn't quite going and here he tried to smash a short ball out the ground, couldn't get much of it and Anderson took an easy catch on the square leg boundary. 263/4
Michael Yardy904905.44161010
Graeme Swann603115.16142000
16.3 to SR Watson, gone! Would you believe it, Watson has picked out deep midwicket with absolute precision as he went for a slog sweep. Eoin Morgan barely had to take step and Watson can barely drag himself away...he's been in good form but hasn't converted. 73/2

Shaun Tait722313.28333020
13.2 to AJ Strauss, edged and gone! Well, that curved away from Strauss very late to take the edge of his bat, and Paine takes a regulation catch behind. Tait strikes, and Australia continue to chip away at England as they chase a win that could at least give them some pride. 61/3
Doug Bollinger803824.75306000
41.2 to GP Swann, and another one goes! Bollinger is too sharp for Swann! Bounced up into the rib area, Swann tried to fend it away and could only glove it behind to Paine. 207/8
41.4 to MH Yardy, Yardy gone this time! Short and Yardy pulls without much timing straight to mid on. 208/9
Ryan Harris8.413253.69323000
8.4 to C Kieswetter, clatter! Harris sent one down much fuller and Kieswetter went for the drive, leaving an enormous gap between bat and pad. There was a touch of wobble on the ball, and some seam movement in after pitching to squirt through the gap and smash into the top of off stump! Harris, who is obviously fired up, gives him a bit of a send-off. 37/1
10.3 to KP Pietersen, Harris strikes again! Pietersen went right across to the offside and aimed an extravagant flick over the leg-side but is struck on the back pad. Huge appeal from Australia, and the umpire agrees! Pietersen isn't happy, giving a long glance at the umpire as he trudges off, but that was stone dead, hitting middle and leg halfway up. 53/2
28.2 to EJG Morgan, the bowling change works and Morgan has gone! That could well be it! Harris has made the difference today, and this was full and outside off stump, inviting the flashing drive, but Morgan could only get a faint outside edge through to Paine.. 140/5
40.2 to TT Bresnan, Harris strikes again, what a game he's having! Bresnan attempted to clear the one man at deep long on, curious shot-selection really, and he ended up skiing it straight to Watson on the boundary. 199/7
42.4 to SCJ Broad, That's it! Harris has five and Australia break their duck! Broad chips it tamely to cover where Hussey takes the catch.. 212/10
James Hopes1005605.60271300
Steven Smith905926.55144010
19.2 to PD Collingwood, great response from Smith and Collingwood has gone! Top stuff from Smith, but Collingwood looks unlucky here, he pushed forward to defend and the ball rapped him on the front pad, looked outside the line though. 90/4
31.4 to LJ Wright, bowled round his legs! Smith has been getting really nice drift, and this has just curved slightly down the leg side and then spun back across to strike the middle and leg stumps. Wright tried to clip to leg but the drift took the ball away from the bat, and some spin did the rest! Another one down for England. 151/6
