Steven Finn903614.00334020
4.1 to DA Warner, and there is the wicket! Pulled straight up and into the hands of square leg. It was short and slightly wide, Warner tried to fetch it to leg and was late on the stroke, getting a top edge that looped up to square leg. Big wicket for England and the extra pace of Finn tells again. 15/1
Jade Dernbach1015905.90338010
Tim Bresnan805026.25214110
46.2 to GJ Bailey, another full bunger and bowled 'im! Excellent death delivery from Bresnan, pitched up and asking the batsman to take a chance - Bailey did but his heave-ho was unsuccessful, the timbers sounding a death rattle. 222/6
46.5 to MS Wade, another one down, caught a short fine leg trying to ramp the ball over the infield! Bresnan's length has been hard to hit, Wade tried to improvise but couldn't clear the man. Bresnan looks like a man who's found a twinkie down the back of the sofa. 223/7
Stuart Broad1004814.80333041
14.2 to PJ Forrest, great catch! And Broad strikes, it was dug in and Forrest looked to pull, it came off the face of the bat and a diving Kieswetter snaffled it with one hand, superb take. Seemed to be beaten for pace there Forrest, he looked to help it on its way but ended up brushing it behind where he was very well taken. 66/2
Ravi Bopara501613.20160001
20.3 to MJ Clarke, but this is edged behind! Goodness me I did not expect that, a little cutter outside off and Clarke feathers it low to Kieswetter. It was a good length and Clarke pushed at it and got a thing edge through to the keeper, good area from Bopara and a mistake from Clarke. 101/3
Graeme Swann802713.37291000
31.1 to SR Watson, lofted, high towards deep midwicket and Finn takes the catch low the ground ... Watson goes! Swann tempted Watson out of his crease, maybe dragged the length down a smidge, the batsman heaved high but it's a long boundary and Finn plunged forward to claim it. 128/4

Clint McKay1014214.20354000
6.1 to AN Cook, and there is a wicket with Cook caught on the crease and plumb lbw. Boy did Australia need that. Excellent delivery, good length around off stump, it shaped back to beat the forward push of Cook and caught him around the knee roll bang in front of middle. 40/1
Xavier Doherty7.404105.34245010
Shane Watson603415.66203110
14.5 to IJL Trott, Trott advances on Watson, gets a faint inside edge, and the ball rattles the stumps! The ball was pretty similar to the one Bell hit out of the park but Trott played with an angled bat - where Bell's was straight - and Watson skidded it through the gap to disturb wicket. Trott's off and Aussies/aesthetes everywhere rejoice. 81/2
David Hussey301705.6682000
Michael Clarke201316.5062000
33.1 to IR Bell, and he does strike! Bell goes to cut a ball that slid onto him and loses his off stump. It was too full for the stroke and a poor stroke first ball to a new bowler anyway, and Bell missed it and it ran onto off stump. 171/3
