150.5OUTBroad to Haddin, out Caught by Prior!! A tame dismissal in the end. End of a sparkling innings from Brad Haddin. This was on a length and outside off, nailed to the crease as Haddin flashes at that, the ball grazes the outside edge and sits snugly in his opposite number's gloves. Muted celebrations from Prior and Broad. Haddin c Prior b Broad 118(177) [4s-11 6s-5]529/9

68.2OUTJohnson to Panesar, out Bowled!! And there it is! Johnson's 7th wicket and finally ending England's ordeal! It was a slightly full ball that gets back in, Panesar gets ready for another solid defence but Johnson cleverly spears the ball through the bat-pad gap and it crashes onto the stumps via an inside edge onto the pads. Panesar b Johnson 2(35)171/10
67.5SIXLyon to Bell, SIX, Another beauty by Bell! It was a slightly short delivery as Bell comes dancing down the track and lofts it elegantly between the midwicket and long on fence for a maximum. The ball sails high in the air and easily crosses the ropes171/9
63.4DROPPEDLyon to Panesar, no run, dropped, flighted delivery just outside off, Panesar stays back and looks to drive and edges, the ball flies to Clarke at slips who fumbles and drops a dolly160/9
60SIXR Harris to Bell, SIX, Whoa! Good shot by Bell. He is trying desperately to push England as long as he could. It was a slightly full delivery outside off, Bell goes inside out, opens the full face of the bat and smashes this over the sweeper cover fence. 18 runs came off that over159/9
59.4FOURR Harris to Bell, FOUR, Another one for Bell, he is fighting a lone battle now. It was full on leg, Bell flicks it off his pads this time past the fine leg ropes153/9
59.3FOURR Harris to Bell, FOUR, Back-to-back boundaries for Bell. He is the only one looking good in this English line-up. He gets on the front foot and drives this length ball beautifully to the long off fence149/9

26.5OTHERJ Anderson to S Smith, no run, this was a lovely delivery nipping back in sharply close to the off-pole, Smith gets forward only to offer no shot. The impact was outside off and the ball appeared to be missing the off-stump as well. Good, handy review from Smith90/3

101.4OUTR Harris to Panesar, out Caught by Chris Rogers!! Game over! Australia are 2-0 up. Tame dismissal - Panesar trying to drive on the up and presents a simple chance to short cover. Rogers accepts the dolly and throws the ball away. Panesar c Chris Rogers b R Harris 0(7)311/10
100.4FOURSiddle to J Anderson, FOUR, if it is pitched up, J Anderson will go after it, times the drive past the vacant mid-on. The ball teases the fielders, but reaches there311/9
100.2FOURSiddle to J Anderson, FOUR, somehow J Anderson got that away, short one on the body, rearing up, Anderson tickles it over the leg-gully man, in the air but over the fielder307/9
98.5OUTSiddle to Prior, out Caught by R Harris!! Prior is gone too now. Well-hit by Prior but he has found Harris at deep backward square leg. The short ball is taken on by Prior who times the pull, but unfortunately hits it too well and straight to the fielder. Harris caught that cleanly and then tumbled to ground. Signals that he caught it cleanly. So Prior goes for a well-made 69. Prior c R Harris b Siddle 69(102) [4s-12]300/9
98FOURR Harris to Prior, FOUR, Prior meanwhile is batting superbly, that is another top-notch stroke - not that short, but Prior timed the back cut so well that it didn't give third man a chance. Now moves to 67. Can he get a hundred?297/8
97.3OUTR Harris to Swann, out Caught by Clarke at 2nd slip!! Edged and gone! Swann isn't a happy man, swishes his bat in the air in disappointment after edging that. He could've left that alone - it was well outside off, with a bit of extra bounce, played away from the body and the healthy edge was grabbed near his face by the Aussie skipper. Just two away now are Australia. Swann c Clarke b R Harris 6(14)292/8
