TOTAL76 Ov (RR: 4.28, 356 Mins)326
Fall of wickets: 1-22 (David Warner, 5.5 ov), 2-51 (Chris Rogers, 15.4 ov), 3-78 (Michael Clarke, 22.3 ov), 4-94 (Shane Watson, 25.4 ov), 5-97 (George Bailey, 28.1 ov), 6-225 (Brad Haddin, 55.3 ov), 7-269 (Mitchell Johnson, 67.3 ov), 8-325 (Ryan Harris, 75.1 ov), 9-325 (Peter Siddle, 75.2 ov), 10-326 (Steven Smith, 75.6 ov)
25.4 to SR Watson, fuller delivery and this nips back to strike the pad right in front of off stump absolutely plumb lbw and England strike right on the stroke of lunch. That's their first leg before dismissal of the entire series! Stone dead that, nipped back to take the big front pad and it would have crashed into middle and leg. 94/4
5.5 to DA Warner, got 'im! Broad gets rewarded for a full length. Holds its line on Warner whose footworks lets him down this time, and Broad zips it past the outside edge to take off stump. Lovely delivery. 22/1
28.1 to GJ Bailey, caught at the second attempt! Oh boy, it looked like Cook had spilled it. Bailey's problems continue. Fiddling outside off stump at a length ball, it was a lovely catching height for Cook but it spilled out however the England captain managed to snatch it inches off the turf. 97/5
15.4 to CJL Rogers, just back of a length and pulled and Rogers drags it into leg stump. The delivery not short enough for the stroke and it's taken a bottom-edge via the front pad into the base of leg stump. Not the best stroke, trying to force it away but it was a misjudgement from Rogers and his hardwork hitherto has been wasted. 51/2
22.3 to MJ Clarke, edged and taken at second slip! Stokes gets it spot on and England have a third wicket and the big one of Michael Clarke. He was playing from the crease around off stump, followed a good length ball slightly and got a thick edge to Ian Bell who held a regulation chance slightly to his right. 78/3
55.3 to BJ Haddin, he's gone! My goodness he's out. Pitched up outside off, Haddin pushes at it without moving his feet and the healthy edge carries at waist-height to Cook at first slip. 225/6
75.1 to RJ Harris, length delivery on off stump and Harris tries to play on the up again but slaps it straight to Anderson at short extra cover. Smart catch from Anderson and he ends Harris's punishing little cameo where he timed the ball quite nicely, timed this punch quite well too but picked out the man on the drive. 325/8
75.2 to PM Siddle, good length just outside off, Siddle pokes at it and gets a thin edge behind and Stokes has a five-wicket haul. A decent delivery in the channel just outside off, it might have straightened a little too and took a little outside edge that carried low to Bairstow. 325/9
75.6 to SPD Smith, length on the stumps, Smith clears the front leg and tries to swing down the ground but picks out mid-on and Stokes has very quickly wrapped this innings up, six wickets for him. Smith simply didn't time the stroke at all and it was a simple catch at head height for the sub Joe Root. 326/10
67.3 to MG Johnson, first Test wicket for Borthwick! Johnson goes for a slog-sweep from outside off, travels miles in the air down the ground and long-on steadies himself under the chance. Joe Root on as sub. 269/7

TOTAL58.5 Ov (RR: 2.63, 268 Mins)155
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Michael Carberry, 3.3 ov), 2-8 (Alastair Cook, 6.2 ov), 3-14 (James Anderson, 9.4 ov), 4-17 (Kevin Pietersen, 12.2 ov), 5-23 (Ian Bell, 17.4 ov), 6-62 (Gary Ballance, 31.5 ov), 7-111 (Jonny Bairstow, 48.1 ov), 8-112 (Ben Stokes, 48.6 ov), 9-125 (Scott Borthwick, 52.6 ov), 10-155 (Boyd Rankin, 58.5 ov)
6.2 to AN Cook, would you believe it! Cook has just padded up to one which would have taken off stump. Don't think the ball really did that much, it was just straight and held its line. Yet Cook just thrust his pad forward and a few seconds later Aleem Dar's finger went up. 8/2
12.2 to KP Pietersen, and another! Watson catches this one, but only with another juggle. Pietersen driving at a length delivery, his feet didn't really move, the bottom hand comes off the bat and it goes at chest height to first slip. 17/4
52.6 to SG Borthwick, straightens the line and gets Borthwick to drive, a touch loose, he gets a thick outside edge to Smith at third slip, solid catch down low. Regulation really, tried to drive a ball not quite up there to do so that was angled across the left-hander and got a nice edge that carried comfortably to the fielder. 125/9
3.3 to MA Carberry, back of a length sliding down the leg side, Carberry flicks at it and Lyon dives to take the catch at leg slip with a fine take down low to his right. Worked off the hip by Carberry, usually a safe stroke, but not with a leg slip in place, superb catch from Lyon. 6/1
9.4 to JM Anderson, and that's that for Anderson. After the short stuff it's a regulation length ball that finds the edge as he prods forward, a think edge flying to Clarke who dives across in front of Watson just to make sure. 14/3
58.5 to WB Rankin, full and straight and cleans him up the 91mph delivery does the trick. Full, right at the stumps, tails in a little and beats the inside edge, taking the pad and crashing into middle and leg stumps, Johnson does his job. 155/10
17.4 to IR Bell, the demise continues! On a length outside off, perhaps just nips away a touch - well, didn't do much - Bell feeling for it without any footwork and a thin edge is snaffled by Haddin. 23/5
48.1 to JM Bairstow, length ball, pushed forward at and pops it up to silly mid-on Bairstow falling into the trap. He went hard a length ball to do no more than just knock it up the wicket, pretty unnecessary really, the ball wasn't there to drive but Bairstow has chipped a catch low to the fielder just off the wicket on the leg side. The delivery might just have gone through the top of the surface and bounced a little. 111/7
48.6 to BA Stokes, leaves a straight one alone and is clean bowled simply a poor piece of judgement and an unusual decision from someone so keen to put bat to ball. Just a terrible leave, middle stump line and it crashes into the top of middle and off stumps, might have come back a little but the initial line was far too straight to consider leaving. A shame for Stokes who had played well. 112/8
31.5 to GS Ballance, done it! Terrific delivery from Lyon, spin and bounce around off stump, Ballance lunging forward and it's a thin edge to give Haddin another catch. Classical off-spin bowling.. 62/6

TOTAL61.3 Ov (RR: 4.48, 287 Mins)276
Fall of wickets: 1-27 (David Warner, 6.4 ov), 2-47 (Shane Watson, 10.3 ov), 3-72 (Michael Clarke, 15.6 ov), 4-91 (Steven Smith, 20.3 ov), 5-200 (George Bailey, 45.4 ov), 6-239 (Brad Haddin, 54.5 ov), 7-244 (Mitchell Johnson, 55.4 ov), 8-255 (Chris Rogers, 58.2 ov), 9-266 (Ryan Harris, 58.6 ov), 10-276 (Peter Siddle, 61.3 ov)
6.4 to DA Warner, he's got the inside edge and strikes Warner on the back leg in front of middle and off. Trapped on the back foot. 27/1
10.3 to SR Watson, well held! Anderson hits back. Gets it outside off stump, Watson playing forward gets a thick edge and Bairstow pouches it diving across in front of first slip. 47/2
15.6 to MJ Clarke, now Broad strikes! Loose from Clarke, perhaps thinking about the previous ball which caused some pain. He feels for a short, wider ball and offers a thin edge to the keeper. 72/3
45.4 to GJ Bailey, picks out deep square that the end of a Test career? We won't know for a while, but for now Bailey departs. Dropped in short, Bailey middled his pull but didn't keep it down and Borthwick took a tumbling catch. 200/5
61.3 to PM Siddle, swings again to a shorter ball and nicks it to the keeper. A thin edge and Bairstow takes it at head height to give Rankin his first Test wicket. Tried to fetch it across to the leg side and was overreaching. 276/10
20.3 to SPD Smith, outside edge and taken at slip and England have a fourth wicket. Full length, drawing Smith forward just outside off and he gets a thickish outside edge that carries low to Alastair Cook who took a regulation chance. Amazing what happens when you pitch the ball up. 91/4
55.4 to MG Johnson, and now he's gone as well, Johnson walking across outside off stump, Stokes gets it full and goes behind his pads into the stumps...they check the no-ball, it's very close, but a millimeter of boot was behind the line. Not quite the same feeling as when Tremlett bowled Johnson in 2010-11. 244/7
54.5 to BJ Haddin, hits back with his wicket. Well done, Scott. Tosses it up, it's actually a low full toss which Haddin gets a bottom edge with a slog sweep and drags into his stumps. 239/6
58.2 to CJL Rogers, shorter length, goes to turn it to leg and gets a leading edge that just carries back to the bowler, Borthwick diving to his left to grab with two hands. The delivery just bounced a little as Rogers tried to take it with the turn from off stump to leg but it chipped back up the wicket and Borthwick held on well. 255/8
58.6 to RJ Harris, full toss on off stump but this time Harris picks out Carberry at deep midwicket, that's another good catch but this time well inside the boundary, coming in and taking it low to his right. 266/9

TOTAL31.4 Ov (RR: 5.24, 147 Mins)166
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Alastair Cook, 1.6 ov), 2-37 (Ian Bell, 9.3 ov), 3-57 (Kevin Pietersen, 13.3 ov), 4-87 (Michael Carberry, 21.2 ov), 5-90 (Gary Ballance, 21.5 ov), 6-91 (Jonny Bairstow, 22.4 ov), 7-95 (Scott Borthwick, 22.6 ov), 8-139 (Ben Stokes, 29.1 ov), 9-166 (Stuart Broad, 31.2 ov), 10-166 (Boyd Rankin, 31.4 ov)
9.3 to IR Bell, sharp catch! Two down. Bell trying to be positive, saw a hint of width from Harris but couldn't keep his back-cut down and he picked out gully who took it low down. 37/2
13.3 to KP Pietersen, what a catch! Australia can do no wrong. Think inside edge as he tries to come forward, it nipped back a touch, the ball bounced high off his pad and Bailey did brilliant to fling himself backwards and catch it behind him over his shoulder. 57/3
29.1 to BA Stokes, a step down the track, tries to slap a length ball to leg and drags it onto his stumps. Stokes going down fighting, a bit stroke too many and got a bottom-edge into the base of middle stump. He was aiming leg side and it ended up being a bit of an ugly head-in-the-air slap but a little cameo was at least something for England. 139/8
31.2 to SCJ Broad, full and straight, Broad swings rather wildly from no position whatsoever and is clean bowled with leg stump being knocked back. Going for another big one was Broad and he missed completely. 166/9
31.4 to WB Rankin, outside edge gone!! Taken at second slip at head height and that's the wicket that seals it. A full delivery just outside off, Rankin swung hard at it, got a thick outside edge and it was taken well by Clarke. 166/10
1.6 to AN Cook, back of a length and Cook pokes horribly away from his body and nicks it to the keeper. A nice early one for Australia yet again but that is a truly horrendous stroke from Cook, pushing away from his body, feet stuck in the crease, following a ball that left him slighlty and getting a feather edge to the Haddin, not everyone was convinced initially but Haddin, Johnson and the umpire were. 7/1
21.2 to MA Carberry, back of a length again but a wider line that entices Carberry to cut and he nicks off to Haddin a thick top edge easily collected at head height. The extra pace of Johnson hurrying the batsman who didn't get into the perfect position for the strike and nicked off. 87/4
21.5 to GS Ballance, full length it keeps low and skips under Ballance's defensive stroke, trapping him in front of off stump. Again the pace of Johnson forces and error, Ballance caught on the crease but it need keep low which totally did for him, front pad, right in front of the timbers. 90/5
22.4 to JM Bairstow, but this is off pad after inside edge and Bairstow is caught at short leg a bit of bounce and turn and a sharp catch from George Bailey under the lid reaching up with two hands over his right shoulder. 91/6
22.6 to SG Borthwick, around the wicket onto leg stump, it bits and takes the outside edge and Clarke dives to take the catch at first slip! A lovely bit of bowling, tossed up and it bounced and turned again and as Borthwick looked to turn it to leg he got a thick outside edge that Clarke claimed with a wonderful dive to his left, inches above the turf that was taken. 95/7
