TOTAL33.5 Ov (RR: 3.01, 163 Mins)102
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Andrew Strauss, 3.6 ov), 2-16 (Ravi Bopara, 6.4 ov), 3-39 (Ian Bell, 15.3 ov), 4-42 (Paul Collingwood, 18.3 ov), 5-63 (Alastair Cook, 22.2 ov), 6-72 (Stuart Broad, 24.5 ov), 7-92 (Graeme Swann, 29.4 ov), 8-98 (Steve Harmison, 31.4 ov), 9-102 (James Anderson, 33.4 ov), 10-102 (Graham Onions, 33.5 ov)
6.4 to RS Bopara, he's got him! Bopara's punched him straight to gully. Good, accurate bowling - it spat up at him a touch, but that's a horridly loose stroke by a No.3 with the ball swinging around. 16/2
3.6 to AJ Strauss, catch - catch! What a total screamer from North! Strauss drove outside off and North took it high, with one hand, to his right, at second slip - and it stuck! Magnificent snaffle, reminiscent of Mark Waugh. 11/1
29.4 to GP Swann, pitches this up and Swann obliges with a drive, gets a thick outside edge which flies to Clarke at first slip taking it comfortably to his right. Easy as you like. 92/7
31.4 to SJ Harmison, Harmison gets his 20th duck! He holds the same record as Mike Atherton, trying to work this to the leg side but getting a thin edge on it through to Haddin. 98/8
33.4 to JM Anderson, good bouncer! Nasty delivery aimed right at his skull, he jumped back and just couldn't get his hands away from it, Haddin taking an easy catch. 102/9
33.5 to G Onions, Siddle has five! Brilliant stuff. A horrid bouncer hammers into his forearm and flies to short-leg where Katich takes a good catch. Nowhere near his glove but, well, near enough given he's a tailender and Siddle roars his delight. 102/10
15.3 to IR Bell, gone! Terrific bouncer from Johnson, on line and made Bell play at shoulder height, he's really only fended and the ball runs off the face of the bat to Haddin. 39/3
18.3 to PD Collingwood, Clark gets his first! Another excellent outswinger on the right length and Collingwood simply prods, finds the outside edge and Ponting at second slip takes a straightforward chance. 42/4
22.2 to AN Cook, another one goes! Clark gets the big wicket of Cook, who prods at a ball that doesn't straighten as much as he expected, a thick edge is well taken by Michael Clarke low to his right at first slip. 63/5
24.5 to SCJ Broad, great catch! What a pickup from Katich at short square leg, Broad has clipped that off his pads and Katich has to go low down and gets his fingers under the ball, very quick reflexes. 72/6

Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Simon Katich, 1.4 ov), 2-133 (Shane Watson, 27.3 ov), 3-140 (Ricky Ponting, 28.6 ov), 4-151 (Michael Hussey, 30.3 ov), 5-303 (Michael Clarke, 72.6 ov), 6-323 (Brad Haddin, 80.2 ov), 7-393 (Mitchell Johnson, 96.3 ov), 8-394 (Peter Siddle, 96.6 ov), 9-440 (Stuart Clark, 102.5 ov), 10-445 (Marcus North, 104.1 ov)
1.4 to SM Katich, got him! A brute from Harmison cutting back and bouncing on Katich who fended it off his gloves to the diving leg gully. 14/1
80.2 to BJ Haddin, got him! Somehow, the bouncer war has worked. Just short of a length, Haddin went for a pull but it wasn't quite short enough and he spooned it around to leg gully. 323/6
27.3 to SR Watson, got him. Onions actually gets one straight as Watson tried to whip it to leg, and that's hitting him halfway up middle stump. 133/2
72.6 to MJ Clarke, Onions gets the breakthrough at last! That's an inswinging yorker, it moves late as well, and Clarke is struck in line with middle stump, that would have taken leg stump. 303/5
28.6 to RT Ponting, got him! Broad raps him on the pad with one angling into Ponting's pads, as he tries to whip it to leg, and there's a long delay before Rauf raises his finger. 140/3
30.3 to MEK Hussey, gone! Broad gets the breakthrough coming around the wicket, swinging in to Hussey and strikes him in line, would have taken leg stump. 151/4
96.3 to MG Johnson, the short ball gets a wicket, Johnson goes for the pull and it flies high out to deep midwicket, where Bopara doesn't have to move to take the catch just inside the boundary. 393/7
96.6 to PM Siddle, gone! Siddle departs for a golden duck. Broad aims at the stumps and it takes the top of off, well bowled by Broad, who now has four.. 394/8
102.5 to SR Clark, Broad gets five, and that's the end of Clark's cameo. He's flashed at one outside off and the bottom edge cannons into off stump. 440/9
104.1 to MJ North, that's it, the innings ends with a big slog to deep midwicket, it's taken comfortably and Broad gets six. 445/10

Fall of wickets: 1-58 (Andrew Strauss, 22.4 ov), 2-58 (Ravi Bopara, 22.5 ov), 3-67 (Ian Bell, 25.5 ov), 4-74 (Paul Collingwood, 27.6 ov), 5-78 (Alastair Cook, 29.6 ov), 6-86 (James Anderson, 32.3 ov), 7-120 (Matt Prior, 38.6 ov), 8-228 (Stuart Broad, 51.3 ov), 9-259 (Graeme Swann, 59.2 ov), 10-263 (Graham Onions, 61.3 ov)
22.4 to AJ Strauss, gone! Hilfenhaus gets the first breakthrough with a ball that swings back in to Strauss and strikes him on the back thigh, Asad Rauf has no hesitation in raising his finger.. 58/1
22.5 to RS Bopara, two from two! Bopara is gone lbw, Hilfenhaus simply aims at off stump and Asad Rauf gives Bopara out.. 58/2
32.3 to JM Anderson, edged - gone! Taken by Ponting at second slip. Easy as you like. Anderson trudges off painfully slowly. Perfect line from Hilfenhaus and had him feeling for it. 86/6
38.6 to MJ Prior, amazing catch from Haddin! A beautiful outswinger had Prior lured into a nibble, Haddin had to decide whether to dive in front of first slip - he did, he dived, and he caught it magnificently with his right glove. Awesome. 120/7
51.3 to SCJ Broad, this time Broad finds the fielder in the deep! Siddle bangs it in short and Broad pulls it to deep midwicket where Watson running in makes a good sliding catch. 228/8
25.5 to IR Bell, Johnson strikes! Not a good shot from Bell, he's prodded at one outside off and tamely edges to Ponting at second slip. 67/3
27.6 to PD Collingwood, another one! Big, big inswinger from Johnson, that's an outstanding, fast, full ball that takes Collingwood in line with middle and leg and that's one of the easier lbw calls of this series.. 74/4
29.6 to AN Cook, Cook is gone! Johnson gets another, fast and full, swinging away from Cook, who gets a thin edge through to Haddin. Wonderful bowling!. 78/5
59.2 to GP Swann, got him! Has he? Yes! The thinnest of edges on that as Swann drives outside off. Swann's utterly unconvinced but up goes the finger and that ends a fine, entertaining knock. 259/9
61.3 to G Onions, bowled him with a jaffa! Cut back sharply and Onions didn't have an answer. Australia level the series 1-1 and Johnson has five. 263/10
