28.1 to AJ Strauss, got him! A horrid little nibble outside off - absolutely no need for Strauss to fiddle at that one, and it carried through low to Haddin. 114/2
86.6 to JM Anderson, Anderson's out! Swinging back late, he was late on it and couldn't get his bat down in time, and Anderson's got his first duck in Test cricket!. 308/9
90.5 to SCJ Broad, got him! Much better from Hilfenhaus, pitching it up, and he goes for a huge swing and gets a thick outside edge to slip. 332/10
2167543.579812004
5.3 to AN Cook, well bowled and CAUGHT! Angled across Cook who pushed at it meekly, edging it low to Ponting's right at second slip. 12/1
47.5 to PD Collingwood, and this time Collingwood does go for the drive and he's caught at gully! Full and wide, Collingwood gets it off a thick edge and Hussey takes the catch right in front of his face. 176/3
53.5 to IR Bell, bowled him, inside edge - he's out! That's cleaned him up! Bell came forward with only a tentative little push, his bat coming down in an arc and it took a thick inside edge to clatter his stumps. 181/4
85.3 to GP Swann, got him! What a way for Australia to end the day, as Swann taps forward meekly and edges a very fine delivery behind. 307/8
1454102.92665000
1506924.60669038
65.3 to MJ Prior, the slower ball and Prior prods it tamely to point who takes a good, leaping catch - terrific bowling from Johnson. 229/5
69.4 to A Flintoff, gone! There won't be a first-innings fairytale from Freddie, flashes at a wide one and gets an edge through to Haddin. 247/6

52.5 to BW Hilfenhaus, late swing and that's cleaned him up! Didn't have much of a clue, his feet were planted and his bat came down in an arc. And that's the end of the innings. 160/10
1433842.71676000
35.3 to MJ North, got him! Swann gets one to go straight on with the arm, North is a bit slow getting the bat down, and Rauf says that's lbw!. 108/5
37.1 to SM Katich, Swann gets Katich! Oh, the follow-on looms now! Katich got an inside edge onto the top flap of his pad and it's bobbed up to short leg, who takes a simple catch and Rauf raises the finger. 109/6
43.5 to MG Johnson, Swann gets his third! That's eight for the session! Swann tosses it up and gets some turn, Johnson is lured into the drive and an outside edge is well snapped up by Prior. 131/8
47.3 to SR Clark, erm. Oh dear. We've had some shockers this summer, but that takes the biscuit and the tin. Clark pats forward, bat nowhere near the ball which takes the top of his pad, ballooning to silly point...and up goes the finger. In the umpire's defence, the bat flicked the pad, so he obviously heard something.... 143/9
411503.75172001
1213753.08546000
22.6 to SR Watson, that's out! No worries about it. Absolutely dead in front, Watson trapped in the crease and that's taking out middle-and-leg. 73/1
26.6 to RT Ponting, bowled him! Broad's bowled him! Ponting goes back and chops it on, his off stump pegged back. 85/2
28.3 to MEK Hussey, got him! Broad's got three! Hussey again not showing good judgement of his off stump as Broad cuts this back nastily and raps him in front. Gone!. 89/3
30.2 to MJ Clarke, he's got him! Broad's got four! Clarke went for a drive, feeling for it, and Trott took a very sharp chance at short extra cover, diving forward. Tremendous cricket from England!. 93/4
38.4 to BJ Haddin, gone! Another one! Broad's got five! And what a superb ball, that has cleaned up Haddin's off stump, it's full and straightening enough to beat Haddin, who was trying to whip it through leg. 111/7

87.4 to GP Swann, got him this time! Good, straight bouncer and he tries to pull it but gets a thick top edge which Haddin swallows with ease. 333/8
1736904.05696020
3049843.2613514010
12.3 to AN Cook, North gets the breakthrough! That's a super delivery, pitches on middle and leg, turns sharply and bounces, Cook trying to work it to leg gets an edge that is snaffled at first slip. 27/1
54.3 to AJ Strauss, gone! Finally there's a breakthrough for Australia, and only five minutes before lunch, North lures Strauss into a drive outside off, there's good turn and an outside edge is snapped up at first slip. 157/4
64.1 to A Flintoff, down the pitch, Flintoff tries to lift it over the top but skies it straight to Siddle at long-on who takes an easy catch, and that's Flintoff's final innings in Test cricket. 200/6
74.2 to SCJ Broad, Broad goes for it and this time he's found the fielder! He's gone the big slog over leg and the extra bounce does him, his top edge skies to mid off where Ponting takes a straightforward catch. 243/7
1716023.52715025
15.4 to IR Bell, great catch! What a sharp piece of work from Katich at short leg! And it wasn't even the bouncer, Bell tried to flick it through leg and Katich gets the hands down low to take a ripper between his legs. 34/2
17.3 to PD Collingwood, another one caught at short leg! Johnson bangs it in at chest height, Collingwood really handles this poorly and prods it straight up in the air, a simple catch for Katich. 39/3

94.6 to IJL Trott, cuts this hard - but straight to point, and North's taken a fine low catch. No one celebrates! And England declare. 373/9

95.5 to MG Johnson, gone! Harmison gets Johnson! He's angled it across and Johnson flashed, his thick edge has been taken sharply by Collingwood moving to his right at second slip. 327/7
99.4 to PM Siddle, Siddle's gone! Leading edge as he tried to work it through leg and that's lobbed up to Flintoff at mid off. Two wickets to go!. 343/8
99.5 to SR Clark, first ball! Caught at short leg! Angled in and it's lobbed up to Cook who snaffles an easy one. 343/9
40.2812042.9718115000
23.6 to SM Katich, stunning delivery from Swann as Katich pads up! That was the arm ball on off stump, it went straight on and that's a horrible leave from Katich as he's trapped in front. 86/1
72.2 to MJ North, gone! Sharp piece of work here from Prior, North takes an enormous stride down and tries to sweep, misses the ball and his foot looks to be on the line as Prior whips the bails off. Billy Bowden doesn't require the third umpire. 236/5
94.4 to BJ Haddin, Haddin's luck runs out! He advances and lofts high over midwicket, but doesn't get the ball well enough off the middle and Strauss gets under it to take a comfortable catch. 327/6
102.2 to MEK Hussey, England have won the Ashes! Hussey prods to short leg and that's it. It's all over!. 348/10
2247113.221019000
24.3 to SR Watson, another one goes, but did he get bat on that? Off-cutter from Broad trapping Watson in his crease; he tried to defend but it was just too quick, too straight, and replays show that would've clipped middle-and-off. England are on a roll here!. 90/2
