2nd over: McGrath is bang on the money, his first over costing just two runs. England 6-0

3rd over: Trescothick edges Lee just wide of second slip for four. Then Jones puts away a full-length ball wide of mid-on for four and slams a drive back past the bowler for a third boundary in the over. England 20-0

4th over: Jones pulls McGrath for consecutive boundaries but finally pays the price when holing out to Kasprowicz at third man.
England 28-1 (Jones 19)

5th over: Lee oversteps for the second time, and this time Trescothick makes no mistake - smacking the free ball for four through point. England 43-1

6th over: Kasprowicz comes into the attack and is hit for four wide of mid-off by Trescothick but Flintoff disappoints by holing out to short mid-wicket.
England 49-2 (Flintoff 6)

7th over: Some shocking fielding by Clarke at deep point gifts Pietersen four runs - it should have just been a single. England 58-2

8th over: Pietersen drives Kasprowicz over mid-off for four. England 68-2

9th over: Trescothick drives just wide of a diving mid-off for four more as Gillespie over-pitches before Pietersen slams England's first six over mid-on. England 82-2

10th over: Pietersen almost cleans up his batting partner with another ferocious drive off Kasprowicz for four. England 93-2

11th over: Clarke, after conceding a boundary to Trescothick, makes the vital breakthrough as Pietersen is caught at deep point.
England 100-3 (Pietersen 34)

12th over: Vaughan tamely chips to mid-wicket first ball off Symonds.
England 102-4 (Vaughan 0)

13th over: England are really losing their impetus against the spinners. England 109-4

14th over: Trescothick gets a little unlucky as he holes out to Hussey off Symonds.
England 110-5 (Trescothick 41)

15th over: Strauss reverse-sweeps Clarke for three before the blond spinner gets the full treatment from Collningwood, whose slogged sweep is worth six. England 124-5

16th over: Collingwood drives the economical Symonds for four through the covers. England 132-5

17th over: Strauss flicks an outrageous shot over fine leg off the returning Gillespie for four. Then Collingwood hits the bowler for four and six on the leg-side.England 149-5

18th over: McGrath returns and manages not to concede a boundary in his over.England 157-5

19th over: Collingwood hits two more inventive boundaries as Gillespie suffers. England 167-5

Strauss hits a ball from Gillespie onto his own stumps. England 158-6 (Strauss 18)

20th over: Collingwood drives McGrath for four and then is caught off the final ball.

Solanki drives McGrath intelligently over cover for four before being brilliantly caught by a diving Hussey deep on the off-side. England 179-8 (Collingwood 46, Solanki 9)

INNINGS BREAK

1st over: Gilchrist hits one good boundary off Gough and then is dropped by Strauss at third man, with the fielder blinded by the low sun. Australia 8-0

2nd over: Lewis' first ball in international cricket is pummelled by Hayden over mid-on for four. Gilchrist mis-hits through the leg-side for four. Australia 18-0

3rd over: Gilchrist is caught by Pietersen at short mid-on off a wild slog as Gough strikes for England. Pietersen takes another catch as Hayden perishes in similar fashion. Australia 23-3 (Gilchrist 15, Hayden 0)

4th over: Jones claims a catch to remove Clarke for a golden duck as Lewis strikes before Symonds chips to that man Pietersen again. Australia 24-4 (Clarke 0, Symonds 0)

5th over: Three dot balls from Gough and the fourth is edged by Hussey to solitary slip Flintoff. Australia 24-5 (Clarke 1)

6th over: Lewis strikes again with the first delivery of a new over as Ponting chips to short extra-cover for a duck, then Martyn succumbs in the same over, caught at wide slip. Australia 31-7 (Ponting 0, Martyn 4)

7th over: Harmison is brought on to bowl to Gillespie but bowls a no-ball and though the resulting free hit is caught, it cannot be out, so they get a single and Lee then slices a boundary over the slips - an over without a wicket.Australia 39-7

8th over: The hirsute Gillespie smears a boundary through mid-on off Lewis and three leg-byes make it a better over for the Australians. Australia 49-7

9th over: Gillespie continues to outshine his colleagues with a searing hook to the fence off Harmison, still prone to some wayward deliveries. Australia 54-7

10th over: Flintoff sees his opening two deliveries hit away for four by Gillespie as 11 come off the over. Australia 65-7

11th over: Gillespie's cameo comes to an end for 24 as he finds Trescothick on the mid-wicket boundary to give Collingwood a wicket. Australia 67-8 (Gillespie 24)

12th over: Flintoff fells Lee with a brutal rising ball that the tailender edges into his visor. Australia 72-8

13th over: Lee falls to a slower one from Collingwood and lofts it to long-on where Harmison hangs on to the catch. Australia 72-9 (Lee 15)

14th over: McGrath is pegged back by another steepling delivery from Flintoff, then gives himself room and swishes at fresh air, before a single is taken from the final ball. Australia 79-9

15th over: Harmison ends the match in style as the middle stump is cartwheeling out of the ground and England win by 100 runs. Australia 79 (McGrath 5)

England: Marcus Trescothick, Geraint Jones, Michael Vaughan, Andrew Strauss, Andrew Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Vikram Solanki, Jon Lewis, Darren Gough, Steve Harmison.

It's a bu**er having dual citizenship, who do I cheer on. I really would like to see England win the Ashes back this year. Both teams have good wins under there belts this year so it will be close.
