Mitchell Starc2847732.7513310011
2.4 to AN Cook, edged and gone! Cook had no choice but to play the line, but the ball kissed the edge with a hint of outswing, and comfortably pouched by Handscomb at first slip!. 2/1
102.2 to DJ Malan, and there's the breakthrough! The short ball brings the moment Australia needed. Couldn't get over this pull, takes the top edge and offers a simple catch to Marsh at deep square. 246/5
113.4 to JT Ball, great catch! Warner at leg gully with a screamer. Ball went to flick a short ball off his hip and Warner flew to his right to snaffle it. 286/9
Josh Hazlewood22.465712.511137000
116.4 to SCJ Broad, this time it's taken. Handscomb this time at deep square. A top edged pull, doesn't have the distance this time, nealty pouched. 302/10
Pat Cummins3088532.831399000
54.2 to MD Stoneman, through him! Cummins makes the breakthrough moments before tea. A top delivery. Round the wicket, just back of a length, zips past Stoneman's inside edge into middle stump. A gem of a ball to end a very fine innings. Was that reverse swing?. 127/2
70.4 to JE Root, massive moment! Huge appeal for lbw, given not out by Erasmus, and Smith has called the review. Root falling across a full delivery, trying to play it too square, the bat got caught behind his pad. This looks very good. Smashing middle!. 163/4
110.3 to JM Bairstow, reward for Cummins! Tries to take him on, goes for the pull against a short delivery, gets a top edge which flies straight up in the air just behind square and Paine trots around for a simple catch. 270/8
Nathan Lyon36127822.1618211100
103.3 to MM Ali, double breakthrough! Moeen is given lbw. He's called for the review but this looks pretty good. Pitches around middle, straightens a fraction. Hits him low on the front pad. No bat involved. It's hitting the top of middle! (Umpire's call, so review retained). 249/6
105.1 to CR Woakes, it's a collapse now! Lovely bowling, but a poor shot from Woakes. Driving against the spin. Tossed up outside off from round the wicket, Woakes tries to go through covers, the ball turns back to hit off stump. 250/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson29105021.721485000
24.5 to PSP Handscomb, huge appeal! Handscomb is so far back in his crease as Anderson fires in the yorker. Was that missing leg? England don't think so and review! There's no inside-edge ... this could be a critical moment of the Test. And it is smashing leg stump!. 76/4
80.4 to TD Paine, new ball strikes! A ripper from Anderson. Just back of a length at off stump, climbs a little and nips away from Paine who can only send an outside edge to Bairstow. Very neat take, one-handed, diving to his right. 202/6
Stuart Broad25104931.961264100
3.4 to CT Bancroft, edged and gone! Broad strikes early, extra lift in the channel outside off, Bancroft is lured into a poke and Bairstow gathers low to his right!. 7/1
67.2 to SE Marsh, oh my goodness, what a floppy way to give it away! Broad rolled his fingers and suckered Marsh into the drive, but the ball never reached him and instead looped futilely to Anderson at mid-off! What a moment. Marsh departs crestfallen. He'd done the hard work this morning, but was comprehensively undone by that one. 175/5
81.4 to MA Starc, what a response from Broad! Sharp grab in his follow through. Back of a length, nips in at Starc who gets a leading edge and Broad grabs it to his right. 209/7
Moeen Ali3087422.461396100
10.3 to UT Khawaja, huge appeal, and that's out! Fired in much straighter and fuller, pinned on the front pad, and Khawaja doesn't even think about a review as Aleem Dar's finger goes straight up!. 30/2
122.4 to JR Hazlewood, bowled him! Probably over-pitched to be honest, but it was straight, and that's what mattered. Hazlewood was lured into a swish across the line, and back goes the middle stump!. 298/9
Chris Woakes2456712.7911211000
113.6 to PJ Cummins, he's done it! Cummins finally snaps. Woakes pitches it up outside off, draws the drive and Cook takes a very good catch, low to his right at the lone slip. He's left so well, but couldn't resist the drive this time. How England needed that. 275/8
Jake Ball1837714.27778021
19.4 to DA Warner, that's huge! Ball has got a key wicket. Short of a length, angled in at Warner who tries to pull through the leg side, can't keep the ball down and he finds Malan at short midwicket - taken with a bit of a juggle, relief on Malan's face. 59/3
Joe Root4.301012.22201000
130.3 to NM Lyon, tucked off the face of the bat, and that is pocketed at leg slip! Just trying to work it around the corner and couldn't keep it down. Neat catch. 328/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc1615133.18675001
68.2 to CR Woakes, he's done it! Put those concerns about Starc to one side. Change of line does the trick. It's a well-directed short ball at off stump, Woakes can't keep it down as it takes the shoulder of the bat and flies low to second slip. 185/7
70.1 to JM Bairstow, oh dear, oh dear! Bairstow has fallen for the trap at third man. The man had just been brought in, did Bairstow not see him? Couldn't have guided it down his throat any better. Was short outside off, he ramped it over the slips and it was a simple catch. 194/8
70.5 to SCJ Broad, goes for the full one, Paine is up for the catch! Smith has called the review. Starc didn't appeal. Full outside off, Broad jabs the bat down. Think there's a Hot Spot on this! A white speck as the ball passes the bat. Paine was spot on. He's had a super session.. 195/9
Josh Hazlewood1634632.87767000
3.3 to AN Cook, hooked to long leg! Oh boy, what has Cook done there?! Maybe he doesn't want to go full. A well-directed short ball, over middle and leg, Cook can't get over the ball was he hooks, it's a big top edge and superbly held on the boundary by Starc. Ran around and got down low to grab it. A poor match for the former captain. 11/1
5.3 to JM Vince, gone now! Back of a length on off stump, climbs at Vince, takes the edge which flies to second slip. That's a beauty, not much Vince could do about that. A proper Gabba dismissal. 17/2
40.6 to JE Root, he won't go further than fifty! Full, straight, nips back off the seam, and given by Aleem Dar. Root ponders for an age then decides against the review. Almost a carbon copy of the first innings. Resume those conversion-rate debates. Is that the decisive blow of this Test. Replay shows it was three reds. 113/5
Pat Cummins12.442311.81602000
71.4 to JT Ball, and that's that! A vicious short ball to end things. Ball can't get out of the line, fends it high in the air off the face of the bat and it loops all the way to fly slip. 195/10
Nathan Lyon2446732.791066101
27.4 to MD Stoneman, got him! The overspin does the trick as Stoneman is suckered by the one that slides a touch straighter. Grazes the edge and scooped low at slip! Beautiful indeed from the Goat. Extra oats for him tonight!. 62/3
33.4 to DJ Malan, he's done it again! What lovely bowling. Gets his line slightly straighter, on middle, Malan has to play, it spins and takes the edge. A simple catch for Smith at slip. 74/4
53.2 to MM Ali, massive turn, and Paine whips off the bails! This one is going upstairs for the stumping...Moeen's toe is on the line, but is there anything behind it? I don't think there is. ... this is a big call. The stump cam implies there might be a millimetre in it, but I think there'll be a riot if this isn't given. The decision is OUT!. 155/6
