BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Woakes302919.6661210
4.1 to SR Watson, crucial breakthrough. Full length again from Woakes, a flick across the line from Watson, but Morgan at deep square leg is in place to take the catch. 37/1
Ajmal Shahzad3034111.3373200
18.4 to SPD Smith, another slower ball, a cutter this time, another smash, and short cover crouches to intercept.. 131/6
Tim Bresnan402716.7561000
19.1 to SNJ O'Keefe, what on earth happened there? Ah, O'Keefe was bowled, that's what. An attempted Dilscoop, but he just ends up looking like a Dil, as his leg bail is removed by a length ball. 138/7
Graeme Swann401924.75132000
6.5 to TD Paine, a swipe across the line, a massive steepler, Collingwood calls for it at short midwicket, steadies himself, fumbles the initial take, but clutches onto the rebound!. 63/2
10.2 to CL White, cracking delivery, genuine spin as White, the Victorian, is nailed on the back foot. Paul Reiffel, the umpire - another Victorian - sticks up the finger!. 74/4
Michael Yardy401924.7590000
9.2 to DA Warner, tame end for Warner as he plays an unbalanced sliced loft down the ground, which Pietersen intercepts on the boundary's edge. Vital strike again from England, who are battling back now. 72/3
11.5 to DJ Hussey, short this time, but it's a rare bad ball that is too eagerly accepted by Hussey. A greedy slap to deep midwicket, where Woakes makes no mistake!. 80/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaun Tait403919.7583011
16.4 to LJ Wright, Big shot doesn't come off! Wright tries to clear mid-off but Steve Smith times his jump perfectly to take the catch above his head. 111/5
Brett Lee402907.2560101
Shane Watson401724.25121000
9.6 to PD Collingwood, Collingwood's difficult run continues. Watson aimed full and Collingwood tried to clear mid-off with a drive. The timing is not there though and it goes gently to mid-off who jumps to take the chance above his head. 74/3
13.1 to SM Davies, game on now! Davies gone this time, his final mistimed shot of the innings. Hanging back and driving to try and clear mid-off but Warner dives forward to take the chance. 88/4
Mitchell Johnson402937.2572010
7.2 to IR Bell, Johnson strikes! Lands a straight ball, touch slower too, Bell was aiming an almighty thwack over cow corner but ended up dragging into his stumps. 60/1
7.5 to KP Pietersen, Cheers and boos ring loud as Pietersen falls! Johnson dished up a full drive-me ball that Pietersen climbed into, only to pick out White at cover who held an excellent low catch. 62/2
17.2 to EJG Morgan, that's the match! Morgan has gone! Got a leg-stump half-volley and tried to heave it over deep midwicket, really struck it well but the MCG is a big ground and he couldn't clear the fielder. 113/6
