James Anderson1945142.68936100
0.5 to RT Ponting, Anderson strikes this time! Two in two! Ponting has gone! Classic outswing bowling, full, drew Ponting into that lunged drive he can play early in his innings, nicked the edge and flew low to Swann at second slip who gleefully took the chance. 0/2
2.1 to MJ Clarke, Two for Anderson! Clarke departs! Another perfect, pitched-up outswinger, Clarke has looked all at sea and walks into a nothing drive that flicks the edge and flies to Swann again. 2/3
28.3 to SR Watson, Anderson strikes! It's all happening again early in the session! Inviting length for a drive but the line is quite far outside off, Watson goes hard at it but the hint of outswing does the business and Pietersen takes a sharp catch in the gully and punches the air in delight. 96/4
84.3 to PM Siddle, this time he's gone! Haddin's gamble doesn't come off as this is again clipped off the legs uppishly, but this time reaching Cook who pouches the chance to give Anderson his fourth. 243/9
Stuart Broad18.563912.07913000
85.5 to BJ Haddin, All over now! Broad finally gets a deserved wicket as he digs in a short ball that Haddin top-edges it sails high down to Finn on the fine leg boundary who makes no mistake. 245/10
Steven Finn1617114.436510011
54.4 to MJ North, Finn strikes! North is caught behind! What was he trying to do here? A shot of some sort was on, there was width on offer, but he pushed limply at it - barely moving his feet - to send a thin edge through to Prior. 156/5
Graeme Swann2927022.411354100
73.3 to MEK Hussey, he's gone! Hussey is gone in the 90s, and Swann has finally spun one appreciably! Hussey was forward and across, leaning into a drive, and the ball took a thick edge to land in Collingwood's lap at slip. 207/6
73.4 to RJ Harris, Huge appeal for lbw, Harris is totally done in the flight and the ball thumps into the back pad. He wasn't too far forward, the umpire raises the finger but Harris asks for the review. Has he hit that? Is it missing leg? Nope, he's given out!. 207/7

Ryan Harris2958422.891339010
48.3 to IJL Trott, Harris strikes! He really deserved that! Slightly slower ball perhaps that Trott flicked uppishly to short midwicket where Clarke held on to a good catch. 176/2
96.4 to AN Cook, Alastair Cook is out! Finally. Harris deserved that, sharp ball on a good length, Cook was back when he should have been forward and it came back between bat and pad, clipping a faint inside edge and Haddin took a good catch diving to his right. 351/3
Doug Bollinger29113014.4811818020
1.3 to AJ Strauss, he's gone! Bollinger strikes straight away, a mis-judged leave from Strauss, and the off bail has been removed. The ball didn't do much - in fact it never deviated off the straight - and Strauss just shouldered arms ... hard to fathom, but perhaps he was looking to leave on length?. 3/1
Peter Siddle30312104.0312317010
Shane Watson1974412.31936000
117.4 to PD Collingwood, Watson strikes! Believe it or not. Good delivery, just nipped back a fraction, Collingwood was hanging back when he should have been forward and it trapped him in front. No question of reviewing that. 452/4
Xavier Doherty27315815.859920200
146.2 to KP Pietersen, all over! Pietersen falls to left-arm spin again. But not before he'd made 227. Doherty finally tosses up a really slow, widish one outside off, Pietersen aims another almighty heave but it spins away, comes off the toe-end and goes very gently to slip. 568/5

James Anderson2249224.189818000
90.5 to BJ Haddin, Anderson gets his man! Finally this is full enough to drag Haddin forward, the full length means the ball can swing and nibble off the pitch, flicks a faint edge as Haddin aims a drive and Prior does the rest. England are through to the tail now!. 286/6
90.6 to RJ Harris, gone! King pair for Harris! Anderson aimed the inswinger at a full length, Harris left alone and it crashed into the front pad bang in front. Harris reviewed but it only confirms the worst. Harris becomes only the second Australian ever to bag a king pair.. 286/7
Stuart Broad1133202.90525000
Graeme Swann41.1129152.211979100
29.2 to SM Katich, gone! Caught behind! That probing off-stump line and sharp spin has done for Katich. England went up in unison as soon as the ball exploded past the bat ... there's a short pause and the umpire raises the finger. Katich doesn't bother calling for a review, he must've hit it. Although replays suggest that if he did, it was a very fine edge. 84/1
35.2 to RT Ponting, Ponting falls! Pushing with no great certainty and a delivery that didn't turn nearly as much as the last one, the ball takes a healthy edge and flies to slip, who holds a great, low catch. Ponting stands at the wicket for several moments, he's bitterly disappointed and can barely drag himself off. 98/2
91.2 to MJ North, another massive appeal from England as North played around his front pad and was struck in front. Given not out initially but England reviewed, North got a big stride in as he thrust bat and pad together, it hit pad first, in front and Hawk Eye confirms it hitting! North gone and Australia have crumbled here this morning. 286/8
95.1 to XJ Doherty, Swann gets another one! Doherty is bowled, top of middle. He played forward, but positioned himself for extravagant turn when there was none. The ball snuck through the gap between bat and pad and clattered into the stumps. Australia nine down now, England are very, very close. 295/9
99.1 to PM Siddle, there it is! Classic offspinner's dismissal, drawing him forward and spinning back sharply from outside off to fizz through bat and pad and clatter into off stump. 304/10
Steven Finn1826023.33828010
46.2 to SR Watson, the patience works for Finn! He's been so steady outside off stump, nibbling the odd one away, Watson had left so well this innings but can't resist a hard-handed block at this, just flicks the outside edge and goes low to Strauss who holds on to a good catch. 134/3
85.2 to MEK Hussey, Finn strikes! The big wicket of Hussey! Banged in short from around the wicket, Hussey tried to fetch the pull shot from around off stump but it nipped back and tucked him up, could only top-edge and send it looping to Anderson at mid-on who took the chance and roared in the direction of the Barmy Army. 261/5
Paul Collingwood401303.25172000
Kevin Pietersen301013.33100000
79.2 to MJ Clarke, Pietersen has the breakthrough! Huge wicket! It spun in sharply from outside off and Clarke got into a tangle as he tried to turn this to leg. It came via a thick inside edge on to the thigh and ballooned to Cook at short leg. Clarke set off until he realised there was no decision made by the umpire, England had to review straight away and it proved the significant inside edge.. 238/4
