103.3OUTBresnan to Siddle, out Caught by Prior!! Again in two minds there Siddle. He wanted play and then decided to leave it, but the ball took the outside edge and went straight into the hands of Prior. It was a gentle short of length delivery, but Siddle couldn't keep it out. Siddle c Prior b Bresnan 21(36) [4s-3]385/10
100.5FOURStokes to Lyon, FOUR, wonderful shot. Full delivery outside off stump, Lyon leans forward and creams the drive to the deep extra cover fence, handy runs these379/9
100.3FOURStokes to Lyon, FOUR, Australia seem to be loving that third man area today. Full delivery outside off stump, Lyon defends and gets an inside that does through slip and gully375/9
99.5FOURBresnan to Lyon, FOUR, fuller length delivery outside off stump, Lyon drives it down the ground, mid-on is very square and he had no chance370/9
97.1FOURJ Anderson to Lyon, FOUR, good shot from Lyon to get off the mark. Fullish delivery on the off stump, Lyon leans forward and pushes it pas mid-off, Broad gives chase but in vain364/9
96.2FOURBroad to Siddle, FOUR, short delivery on the off stump, Siddle pulls it over the infield and there is no one in the deep at backward square leg. Good shot from Siddle358/9

88OUTSiddle to J Anderson, out Caught by Bailey!! One of easiest catches for short-leg ever! Short delivery on the stumps, Anderson tries to fend but gets the shoulder of the bat, the ball lobs up in the air and Bailey takes an easy grab. A fine lead for Australia in the end. J Anderson c Bailey b Siddle 2(9)251/10
87FOURR Harris to Swann, no ball, FOUR, Harris loses grip of the ball. A high full toss on the stumps, Swann backs away and drives it through cover-point. Handy runs these. An official warning for Harris, another one and he's off the attack. Anyway just one wicket to go though247/9
86.5FOURR Harris to Swann, FOUR, he only wants boundaries. Full delivery on the off stump, Swann off-drives it off the front foot to long-off and picks up his third boundary242/9
86.1OTHERR Harris to J Anderson, no run, good length delivery shaping away outside off stump, Anderson was squared up a touch and is struck on the back pad but the ball was missing the stumps comfortably237/9
86FOURJohnson to Swann, FOUR, nicely done. Full and wide outside off stump, Swann square-drives it off the front foot through backward point237/9
84.1OUTR Harris to Bresnan, out Caught by Haddin!! He almost nicked one in the previous Harris over and this time he's kissed it. Short of a length delivery just shaping away outside off stump. Bresnan was in minds. He thought of playing initially and decided against it at the last moment, but it was all too late as the ball took the edge through to Haddin. Just one more to for Australia to bat again. Bresnan c Haddin b R Harris 21(29) [4s-4]233/9

87SIXJ Anderson to Bailey, SIX, and with that six, Australia have declared. Clarke has seen enough and in his own inimitable style, whistles and calls the batsmen in. The last six was a monster hit as well, pitched up on the stumps, Bailey just drilled that flat and hard over long-on, it goes a long way and falls on the white cloth. As soon as Bailey smashed that six, Clarke called them in - 28 off that Anderson over too369/6
86.5SIXJ Anderson to Bailey, SIX, that is a mishit folks! A mishit and it has crossed the ropes at long-off, the fielder thought he had a chance, but the ball kept sailing over his head363/6
86.4FOURJ Anderson to Bailey, FOUR, now Bailey is getting into the act, swung away across the line and beats deep backward square leg, the man just had a few paces to move to his left, but couldn't get there357/6
86.2SIXJ Anderson to Bailey, SIX, Boink! Bailey has nailed that. Absolutely nailed it. Half volley on the stumps, Bailey clears his left-leg slightly and lofts hard and straight down the ground, Clarke and Co. like it, they love it in fact. That was a 105 metre hit. Bounces off the concrete351/6
86.1FOURJ Anderson to Bailey, FOUR, the width was there and the bounce too to play that kind of a stroke - short and bouncing outside off, Bailey just upper-dabs it well over Cook's head at slip, races away to the third man fence345/6
85.4OUTBresnan to Haddin, out Caught by Swann!! Let the party begin, if you are an English supporter that is - for they have just caught one. Haddin backing away and trying to cut hard, gets a thick outside edge that goes wide of point, Swann runs back and takes it safely - not an easy catch but the spinner made it look easy. Haddin c Swann b Bresnan 5(6) [4s-1]340/6

103.2OUTJohnson to J Anderson, out Caught by Bailey!! Australia have regained the Ashes after 4 years! Happy scenes out there, Michael Clarke jumps in joy and the entire team get into a huddle to celebrate the moment. Woo hoos, all over! This was a very similar dismissal to the first innings for Anderson, it was a fast short delivery on the stumps, Anderson tries to fend and gets the shoulder of the bat, short-leg dives forward and takes a very good catch. J Anderson c Bailey b Johnson 2(8)353/10
101.3OUTJohnson to Bresnan, out Caught by Chris Rogers!! 36-year-old Chris Rogers dives full length and takes a ripper! What were you told before you walked out to bat today? Listen, Johnson will bowl those nasty short balls but please find a way to tackle him. Meanwhile, Johnson out foxes the batsman completely, he rolls his fingers across the ball and delivers a well disguised slower delivery outside off stump, Bresnan was way early into the shot and in trying to check it, chips it in the air towards mid-off, Rogers runs to his right and takes a stunning catch. Bresnan c Chris Rogers b Johnson 12(40) [4s-1]349/9
100.2OUTLyon to Swann, out Caught by S Smith!! A very, very tame dismissal! Hello Mr. Graeme Swann, what were you doing there? It was nothing but a normal flighted delivery on the stumps, Swann was lazy to move his feet, just tries to work the ball on the on-side from the crease and gets an inside edge, the ball lobs off the pad and high enough for short-leg to run back and complete a simple catch. Swann is annoyed with himself alright but he certainly had to bat sensibly, especially after such a courageous knock from Stokes. Swann c S Smith b Lyon 4(6) [4s-1]347/8
99.4FOURJohnson to Bresnan, byes, FOUR, if only this bouncer was directed well, life would have very difficult for Bresnan. Down the leg side and he lets this steepler go to the fence345/7
98.5FOURLyon to Swann, FOUR, this time he's slog swept it along the ground and split mid-wicket and long-on to perfection. He got down quickly and played that well340/7
98.2OUTLyon to Stokes, out Caught by Haddin!! Australia have their man. A standing ovation for the youngster from the WACA crowd. It has been an outstanding knock from Stokes. Flighted delivery outside off stump, Stokes tries to fetch the sweep, only manages a thin bottom edge which is well held by Haddin despite the fact that it didn't rise much. So, just three more to go for Australia to get both hands on the Urn. Stokes was anchoring the innings and now he's gone. Stokes c Haddin b Lyon 120(195) [4s-18 6s-1]336/7
