James Anderson2478053.3310713000
49.4 to MJ Clarke, oh he's got him! A huge inswinger here, curves late and strikes Clarke on middle and leg, Rudi Koertzen lifts the finger. 193/5
51.4 to MJ North, wonderful catch! Prior makes a super take diving to his left across first slip. Fullish ball swinging away from North, who got a thick edge to one that he might have left alone. 202/6
51.5 to MG Johnson, oh he's gone too! Swings back in to Johnson, who is in two minds whether to leave it - he does leave it - and it hits him above the knee-roll. 202/7
53.5 to GA Manou, wow! What a delivery! Anderson comes a touch wider and gets the ball to straighten and it comprehensively smashes Manou's off stump, that is almost the perfect ball.. 203/8
61.5 to PM Siddle, fantastic delivery, swinging in, then straightening a touch on the right-hander who tries to work it through midwicket but gets a thick outside edge for Anderson's five. 229/9
Andrew Flintoff1525803.86658011
Graham Onions16.425843.48758010
30.1 to SR Watson, got him first ball! Cut back sharply on Watson who was a little late on this good, quick and straight delivery and that's out!. 126/2
30.2 to MEK Hussey, he's bowled him! He's bowled him! Hussey has left a straight one and his off stump is pegged back! What a disastrous start for Australia. 126/3
38.3 to RT Ponting, got him! He's out! A quick bouncer, Ponting went for a hook and got a thin edge through to Prior. Onions has bowled so, so well this morning. 163/4
70.4 to BW Hilfenhaus, got him! Another slapping drive finds Swann in the gully, and that's the final wicket for Onions who finishes with four wickets. 263/10
Stuart Broad1325103.92599000
Graeme Swann20412.0080000
18.6 to SM Katich, and Swann strikes in his first over! Around the wicket to Katich, who misses a ball that goes on with the arm, he's struck in line and Aleem Dar says that's lbw.. 85/1

Ben Hilfenhaus30710943.6314319004
19.2 to RS Bopara, he's dragged it on! Technical weakness exposed by Hilfenhaus as Bopara goes back, his bat coming down diagonally and he gets a thick inside edge into his stumps. 60/2
44.1 to AJ Strauss, Gone! Hilfenhaus makes the breakthrough, Strauss goes at last. Short of a length outside off and he gets a thick top edge attempting to cut, straightforward take for Manou.. 141/3
50.5 to PD Collingwood, Hilfenhaus gets another! Well bowled, a fullish outswinger and Collingwood drives, the thick edge is well taken by Ponting above his head at second slip. 159/4
88.6 to JM Anderson, got him! Well bowled Hilfenhaus, deserves that. Just outside off, Anderson cuts when he should have left it, and edges it to Manou behind. 355/9
Peter Siddle21.338934.139213010
1.4 to AN Cook, gone! Siddle breaks through in his first over, Manou takes his first Test catch and Cook is gone for a duck. Fuller ball outside off and Cook drives, gets an edge to Manou, who takes it low to his left. 2/1
71.3 to MJ Prior, oops, mistimes this one and that's the end of Prior. Short ball, pulled and comes off the bottom of the bat, lobbing up to mid-on where the 12th man Phil Hughes takes the catch. 257/6
93.3 to SCJ Broad, got him this time! Gifts Siddle an easy catch, and that's the end of England's innings. 376/10
Nathan Hauritz1825713.16814200
80.4 to A Flintoff, well, well. That's a very odd dismissal, it spins out of the rough and Flintoff plays no shot, but doesn't get his gloves out of the way, and the catch is taken at first slip. 309/7
Mitchell Johnson2119224.389015015
55.6 to IR Bell, that's out. That's so out. And even Rudi thinks so! Inswinger on middle stump, Bell plays all around it (as he did earlier in the day. And two days ago) and that's out. 168/5
87.3 to GP Swann, got him! Slower ball punched to mid-off. A really soft and tame dismissal but well bowled Johnson. 348/8

James Anderson2184712.231005001
43.6 to SR Watson, Anderson strikes in his first over of the day! Watson looks to drive straight and he's got a thin outside edge through to Prior. 137/3
Andrew Flintoff1503502.33704000
Graham Onions1937413.898312010
13.2 to SM Katich, Onions makes the breakthrough! Very good delivery, fullish length and it seams away a tiny bit, Katich looks to drive straight and gets an outside edge through to Prior. 47/1
Graeme Swann31411913.8313721000
14.6 to RT Ponting, oh what a ball - what a delivery! Tossed up, dragged him forward and sharp spin turns through the gate to hit his stumps! Fantastic over and a brilliant piece of bowling to remove Ponting. 52/2
Stuart Broad1623822.37785010
52.6 to MEK Hussey, massive wicket! Broad does the job and gets a thin outside edge from Hussey, he's just probing outside off and Hussey pushes and manages to find contact with a ball that didn't seam a lot. 161/4
103.1 to MJ North, what a catch from Anderson to deny North a hundred! Didn't move his feet, drove uppishly and Anderson at gully took off to his right and clung on with his right hand. What a stunner!. 346/5
