Steve Harmison11.204353.79505000
12.5 to RT Ponting, Harmison strikes! Just short of driving length and outside the off, Ponting drives and edges, the ball carries well to Strauss in the slips who takes an important catch!. 55/2
36.1 to SK Warne, Warne gets a bit too cheeky, walking across his stumps. Harmison spears one in full, fast and on the leg stump. The stump flies out of the ground and Warne's entertaining cameo comes to an end. 175/7
36.3 to SM Katich, Short one, Katich goes for it, sensing he's running out of partners, the pull is mistimed, th eball goes off the edge and flies straight up in the air. The wicketkeeper waves the slip cordon away and settles under the catch!. 178/8
38.4 to B Lee, Harmison fires one of his rockets and Lee is cut in half, the ball squeezes between bat and pad - there's a loud sound as it goes through - and Jones behind the stumps takes a sharp catch. 178/9
40.2 to JN Gillespie, This time it's fuller, just as straight and Jason Gillespie is dead in the water as the abll hits pad. Aleem Dar signals the end of the Australian innings!. 190/10
Matthew Hoggard804015.00335002
7.6 to ML Hayden, There's the peach from Hoggard. Perfectly pitched up, swinging in late, Hayden leans forward to drive and misses as the ball shatters the off stump! Hoggard strikes! Now you can bet he'll be bowling another over or two!. 35/1
Andrew Flintoff1125024.54528009
14.4 to JL Langer, short ball, Langer goes for the pull but can't get hold of it. The ball flies high in the air but Harmison watches it carefully and settles under it at square leg. 66/3
28.3 to AC Gilchrist, Flintoff gets sweet revenge! Full and shaping away late, Gilchrist goes for the big drive, the ball does just enough to beat the middle of the bat and take the outside edge before disappearing into Geraint Jones's waiting gloves. 126/6
Simon Jones1004824.804310010
15.1 to DR Martyn, Simon Jones strikes with his first delivery! Just short of a length and oustdie the off, Martyn goes for the shot and can only manage an edge to the keeper!. 66/4
21.5 to MJ Clarke, Full delivery, pitches just outside the line of off stump and hurries onto Clarke. He plays and misses and is struck on the pad. Loud shout from the England team and slow finger of death from Rudi Koertzen sends Clarke on his way. 87/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Glenn McGrath1855352.94879100
6.1 to ME Trescothick, Glenn McGrath gets it bang on target first ball after the break! That's wicket number 500 for a tireless champion! Trescothick tries to turn one to the on side and edges straight to Langer in the slips! Australia strike. 10/1
6.5 to AJ Strauss, Another perfect ball from McGrath and Strauss can do nothing but edge to Warne at first slip who takes a good sharp catch just centimetres from the ground!. 11/2
12.2 to MP Vaughan, Just as we wondered if Vaughan would be careful McGrath shoots him down! Unfortunate for Vaughan as the ball keeps low and scuttles under his bat and wrecks the stumps. 18/3
14.3 to IR Bell, And there's the perfect ball from McGrath. You can not play that. Perfect line and length, just enough seam movement to come in and take the inside edge and clatter into the leg stump! Australia are well and truly back in this game now!. 19/4
16.1 to A Flintoff, McGrath gets another one bang on target, Flintoff can do nothing as the ball keeps low and crashes into the stumps! McGrath has five wickets and England are in deep, deep trouble.. 21/5
Brett Lee15.154733.09726004
34.1 to GO Jones, Lee bangs one in short and it flies off the pitch, Jones can only fend the ball straight into the air for Gilchrist to catch! Lee gets a well-deserved wicket. He has absolutely steamed in all day. 79/6
36.6 to AF Giles, slightly short, slipping down the leg side, good pace, and Giles goes for a glance, through to the keeper and up goes the finger!. 92/7
48.1 to SJ Harmison, Full and on the off, Harmison goes for a big hit but can only spoon a catch to Damien Martyn at mid-off. 155/10
Jason Gillespie813003.75386001
Shane Warne721922.71311100
41.4 to MJ Hoggard, Warne gets his man! Hoggard cuts one that is short and a bit wide, Hayden parries the ball that comes fast to him and takes a good one-handed reflex catch after. Fine slip fielding and Warne has his first wicket of the game!. 101/8
43.4 to KP Pietersen, Pietersen goes for another mighty hit and the ball sails high and handsome between midwicket and long on, Damien Martyn charges about twenty metres to his left, dives full length and pulls off a stunning catch just metres from the ropes!. 122/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Steve Harmison27.465431.951397000
62.1 to DR Martyn, And another! Back of a length and on the stumps, the ball jags back a lot and keeps a touch low, Martyn is trapped in front of the stumps! Unlucky for Martyn but England now have two in two balls!. 255/5
70.2 to SK Warne, Harmison spears a short one in, Warne tries to work the ball to the leg side but closes the face of the bat too early and can only present Giles a simple catch at gully off the leading edge. 279/7
100.4 to SM Katich, short one from Harmison, Katich can't resist having a go, he has a uppercut, sending the ball high and wide, Simon Jones runs around at third man and pouches the catch!. 384/10
Matthew Hoggard1615623.50727002
27.3 to RT Ponting, short of a length and outside the off, Ponting cuts but it is uppish and straight to the man at point. James Hildreth, the substitute pouches the simple chance and that's the end of Ponting!. 100/3
61.6 to MJ Clarke, Rush of blood from Clarke and gone! that was unfortunate! Clarke drives hard at a wide one and the ball comes back off inside edge onto his boot and then trickles back onto the stumps. 255/4
Andrew Flintoff27412324.5511113005
14.4 to ML Hayden, Gone! Just short of a length and outside the off, the ball does not quite get up as much as Hayden expected and his pull shot sends the ball crashing onto the stumps via the bottom edge! Hayden makes the long walk back and Flintoff has struck. 54/2
67.2 to AC Gilchrist, Gone! That's the big one! Flintoff works his magic yet again! Flintoff bowls a perfect delivery, line and length bang on target and Gilchrist can only edge this one back onto his stumps!. 274/6
Simon Jones1816913.838111001
89.6 to JN Gillespie, Terrific ball from Jones and he gets his reward! On the off stump, climbing just enough to hit the top of the stump, Gillespie plays down the wrong line and Jones strikes! Just reward for a bowler who has toiled hard. 341/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Glenn McGrath17.122941.68852000
50.3 to GO Jones, short one outside the off, Geraint Jones goes for the pull and can do no more than spoon a catch to Jason Gillespie at mid-on! Tame dismissal that and Australia are on their way. 158/6
50.5 to AF Giles, just short of a good length and outside the off, Giles pokes at it and can only edge to Hayden at gully. The bucket hands of Hayden swallow the ball and Giles is gone for a duck!. 158/7
54.6 to MJ Hoggard, full, quite straight, on the stumps, the ball nips back and keeps a bit low, Hoggard has no chance as the ball crashes into the pad! Dead in the water and Australia inch one wicket closer. 164/8
58.1 to SP Jones, back of a length and outside the off, shot played,straightforward edge to Shane Warne at first slip and he pouches it!. 180/10
Brett Lee1535823.86688101
26.3 to AJ Strauss, short ball banged in at 90+ miles an hour, Strauss plays an awkward pull and the ball pops up in the air. Lee sees it and charges forward in his follow-through, sprinting like and athlete doing the 100 metres, he throws himself full length. 80/1
36.2 to MP Vaughan, Lee steams in and delivers a perfect delivery pitching middle and off and swinging away just enough, just late enough, to beat Vaughan's bat and knock the off stump out of the ground!. 112/4
Jason Gillespie601803.00293002
Shane Warne2026443.20929100
29.2 to ME Trescothick, quick one on the off, Trescothick plays and edges. Hayden gleefully wraps his arms around the ball. This a classic Warne dismissal! Just what Australia wanted and what England did not need. 96/2
33.1 to IR Bell, got'm! quicker one does the trick, on the stumps and going straight on, Bell goes back to defend and gets hit on the pad plumb in front of the stumps, loud appeal and the finger of death goes up, second wicket for Warne. 104/3
39.3 to A Flintoff, straight one just outside the off, Flintoff does not pick it. He has a massive cut and can only manage an edge to Gilchrist who take a sharp catch. That is the end of Flintoff and you can hear the crowd go silent as the big man walks back!. 119/5
55.3 to SJ Harmison, straight on, pitching on the stumps, missing off, certainly missing leg, but crashing into the middle stump halfway up if Harmison hadn't got a pad in the way! That is plumb!. 167/9
