Graham Onions23.437032.9511212000
10.2 to RT Ponting, a roar from the crowd as Ponting aims a loose swish at a short wide ball, one he could easily have left, and a thick edge is easily held by Solanki at first slip. "A stinky dismissal" laments an Australian colleague.. 24/2
46.1 to MJ North, he's played on! North stays in his crease before moving half forward, he plays hesitantly as if he's thinking about leaving it but prods at the ball in the end, it takes the inside edge on to his stumps. 186/5
96.4 to NM Hauritz, goes for a wild pull, but the ball was a too wide of off stump and he sends a high catch to point. 358/10
Steve Harmison2538043.201099000
7.3 to PJ Hughes, Hughes has been tested with a fair few short ones and has looked anything but the run machine he was at Middlesex … finally Harmison gets him, banging one in, Hughes doesn't get over it, getting in a complete tangle, and gloves the ball to gully. Harmison , touching 90mph consistently, looks like the 2005 version …. 19/1
39.5 to SM Katich, . 165/3
81.4 to B Lee, bowled him! Harmison bowls a full ball which pitches on middle before seaming away from the right-hander, Lee tries to play the ball on the leg side but gets beaten by the movement. 315/8
95.1 to MEK Hussey, gone! Superb bowling from Harmison, full and swings in late to beat Hussey's drive and an excellent innings comes to an end. 348/9
Tim Bresnan1714632.70806000
45.1 to MJ Clarke, Bresnan bowls a full ball outside off stump and swings it away from the right-hander, Clarke moves forward and tries to drive the ball through cover, the outswing forces him to reach out for it away from his body and he slices it straight to Adil Rashid at point. 185/4
49.5 to BJ Haddin, lbw! Bresnan pitches the ball outside off and slants it into Haddin who plays from his crease and gets hit on the pad, he tried to play across the line but missed, that ball looked like it was missing leg stump though. 197/6
78.4 to MG Johnson, after a few slower bouncers Bresnan bangs in the quicker one, Johnson is late in going for the pull and gloves the ball to Davies. 306/7

Mitchell Johnson26111814.5310617106
85.6 to TT Bresnan, bowled him! And that's Johnson's first wicket of the game, he angled a short of a length delivery across Bresnan who hung his bat out at the ball, it cannoned off his inside edge on to his stumps. 315/7
Brett Lee2767662.8112811000
44.3 to JL Denly, finally! Australia make the breakthrough as Lee strikes in his comeback over, finding some late swing and crashes one through Denly who is caught on the crease. 172/1
44.4 to IR Bell, two in two, how the game changes! Full and more late swing, Bell plants his front leg across the stumps and is taken on the pad. The umpire says that will take middle and leg. So after an opening stand of 172, Bell goes first ball.. 172/2
52.4 to VS Solanki, well bowled! More reverse swing for Lee and Solanki's high back-lift does for him, he can't get down in time and the ball goes from pad into off stump. 198/3
56.1 to SC Moore, goes! A bouncer works this time and what a great spell from Lee. He bangs in it and Moore sizes up the pull, but the top-edge flies backward of square where Brad Haddin makes plenty of ground to take a superb catch. 209/4
56.6 to EJG Morgan, gone again! More brilliant fast, late, reverse swing from Lee and Morgan is trapped in front of leg my a tracer-bullet of a delivery. It speared in towards Morgan's toes and he couldn't get his feet out of the line. That was plumb. Lee on fire and he's booked his Test place. 209/5
86.3 to SI Mahmood, oh he's been bowled! Lee fires in a short ball, forcing Mahmood to duck in a hurry, Mahmood isn't quick enough and the ball thuds into his shoulder before bouncing over him and pitching once before going on to the stumps. 316/8
Stuart Clark1624022.50765000
93.3 to AU Rashid, caught! Rashid's slashed several through and over the point region but this time he cuts it hard but straight to the fielder. 344/9

Steve Harmison1735523.23738000
5.5 to PJ Hughes, gone! Harmison bounces out Hughes for the second time in the match, round the wicket and the short ball is right on target. All Hughes can do is fend off into the slips and he's been worked out in this match. 17/1

Mitchell Johnson924825.33408001
4.5 to SC Moore, outside off, he goes for a flashing drive, the ball flies to Ponting's right at second slip who takes a sharp chance. 29/1
14.2 to JL Denly, Johnson goes around the wicket, cramping Denly for room, and he gets a thin edge while coming forward onto the front foot. Great comeback by Johnson after being hit for four. 62/2
Brett Lee813814.75346000
32.3 to VS Solanki, what a ball! A late reverse-swinging delivery at 92mph plucks out Solanki's middle stump, his feet shuffling to leg to avoid being crushed. Fantastic delivery. 115/4

27.5 to IR Bell, and Bell departs! Hauritz finally has a wicket, bowling a straight line and that's a superb catch by Katich at short-leg, diving to his right and Bell is gutted. 105/3
