BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Nathan Bracken1013333.30402010
46.2 to RS Bopara, what a shot, but he's found Hussey at deep midwicket. It was an extraordinary flick, timing it to Hussey on the boundary who took an easy catch. 230/6
48.4 to KP Pietersen, and he's gone this time, trying to lift Bracken for six but it's hit flat, and straight to Michael Clarke who needs not move a muscle, taking a very simple catch. 240/7
48.6 to SI Mahmood, another full toss, well, what a catch! That's a marvellous catch from Hodge, Mahmood slicing it to him at backward point who tumbled to his right and took a fine catch. 240/8
Shaun Tait1004134.10414032
3.2 to MP Vaughan, gone! Again short from Tait, Vaughan went back and simply played it onto his stumps.. 10/1
5.6 to AJ Strauss, gone! A mirror of Vaughan's dismissal; short of a length, Strauss back onto his stumps, he tried to cut it but with a rather ugly cross-bat and it's dragged on. 24/2
30.3 to PD Collingwood, lovely delivery, top class that one: Collingwood looking for the reverse swing and playing away from his body on his back foot. There's just a thin edge - but one without doubt - and Gilchrist clings on. 167/4
Glenn McGrath9.506236.30297110
29.3 to IR Bell, oh there we go, Bell departs - McGrath perhaps held it back a touch, Bell trying to drive it over cover but his head fell back and the ball spooned to Hussey at extra cover. 164/3
49.2 to PA Nixon, and he tries to replicate the shot before, smacking a full toss but straight down Hodge's throat at long-on who swallows it with ease. 246/9
49.5 to JM Anderson, full, swinging into Anderson who completely misreads the line. McGrath roars his appeal and up goes the finger. 247/10
Michael Clarke402706.75102100
Brad Hogg1003613.60310010
35.3 to A Flintoff, a little touch of air and the ball tempts him outside his crease. It deviates past his outside edge, turning a touch and Gilchrist completes the move with some sharp glovework and Flintoff's on his way. 179/5

10.6 to AC Gilchrist, goddim! Held that one back a touch, Gilchrist was unsure whether to go forward or back; in the end, a rather nothing shot prodded a simple catch to Paul Collingwood at point. 57/1
Monty Panesar904805.33265000
Paul Collingwood905015.55264110
19.1 to ML Hayden, bowled him! Or has he? Good line on off stump and just shaves the off stump. Collingwood roars an appeal - Hayden is so massive at the crease that it's quite hard to see the stumps. But Rudi confirms it with a nod of the head. 89/2
