      4.2  OUT! What a move! Watson strikes on his second delivery. Plumb leg before. A good length delivery, lands on the middle and nips in to strike Cook on the front pad. Appeal and the finger goes up after a long wait. Clarke's brilliant move has worked wonders, huge blow for England.

      5.2  OUT! Root departs and that could be another tricky call coming off DRS. Fullish delivery, coming in and strikes Root on the pads with the inside-edge. The Hot Spot shows a massive white spot but the question was did it hit the pad first? That's the decision they have gone in with and Root has to walk back. The on-field call stays.

      33.5  OUT! Trott falls to a trap and Harris has three now! He completes 50 Test wickets. Banged in short, on the middle, Trott turns for the pull but only manages a top edge which carries to Usman Khawaja at deep mid-wicket. England into lower middle-order now.

      5.6  OUT! England are three down! This is an excellent start for Australia. Good length delivery, lands outside off and straightens. KP fishes and finds a faint edge behind. He walks and the Aussies celebrate. Top class over by Harris.

      76.6  OUT! Smith strikes! Another one of Clarke's move has worked brilliantly as Smith bags a wicket in his first over. Flighted delivery, around off, turns with bounce and Bell is on the front foot. He gets a thick edge behind and an easy catch for Clarke at first slip. Bell walks back after a fantastic knock. He receives a huge applause.

      80.1  OUT! Would you believe it? Smith offers a low full toss, around off, Bairstow comes forward and just plays it straight back into the hands of the bowler. Poor delivery but gets the wicket. Bairstow knows that's a silly, silly mistake. Two quick wickets for Australia.

      84.3  OUT! Smith is bamboozling the English middle order! A front of the hand flat delivery around the off stump, Prior sees the length and goes back to cut the ball. The ball skids on and takes the outside edge of Prior's bat. Haddin takes a good catch to get rid of his counterpart. This is turning out to be Smith's evening.

      89.1  OUT! Harris strikes first ball! What a fantastic start to the day for Australia! Perfect length, just around off, moves away a shade and catches the outside edge as Bresnan prods to defend. Good carry to Haddin who has to stretch a bit to his right. England eight down.

      93.3  OUT! Next ball, Harris gets his man! He has five now. Nicely bowled around length, Anderson with a mere push, edges it behind and Haddin takes a simple catch on that occasion. 3rd five-fer for Harris in Tests! He has bowled superbly throughout this game and now gets his name on the Lord's Honours Board.

      100.1  OUT! Pattinson does it for Australia with the final wicket. Bowls tidy length, just outside off, Broad plays at it and gets a faint edge behind. Aussies celebrate but Broad still isn't convinced, which is incredible. He has a chat with his partner and opts for the review. Interesting one as there was pad involved too. Though, Hotspot confirms it was bat, then pad and into the gloves of Haddin. England have been bowled out.

      12.4  OUT! Bresnan strikes and hands England a slight advantage before lunch. Bowls a fullish delivery, around off, tails in and strikes Watson on the pads who was looking to play across the line. Plumb and the finger goes up. Watson has a word with Rogers, opts for DRS but nothing on it. Simple one.

      15.2  OUT! Bizarre dismissal and Rogers has to walk. Rank full toss, high on the middle and leg. Rogers tries to pull and misses it completely. The ball was dipping and strikes him in the midriff. There is an appeal and the finger goes up. Rogers has a word with Khawaja and doesn't opt for the review. The replay, though, shows that it would have easily missed the leg stump. Unlucky, the batsman but Swann can only offer a smile and look down.

      23.5  OUT! That is just awful from Khawaja. He loses his patience, charges down the track and goes for a big one. He miscues it completely and Pietersen settles under it at mid off. Australia are in dire straits.

      18.6  OUT! Hughes departs! Looked like a slight outside edge to the third umpire it seems. Length delivery outside off, tailing away. Hughes stays in his crease and looks to drive it on the up with his feet firmly rooted. He seems to miss it but there is a slight noise as it passes the bat. They all go up in an appeal, Bresnan is late in appealing. The umpire raises his finger. Hughes opts for a review. But Hot Spot replays are inconclusive and the third umpire goes by the sound and doesn't overrule the on-field call. Australia have now lost both their reviews.

      30.6  OUT! No reviews left and Clarke departs, massive blow to Australia who sink further. Broad bowls it full, around middle and leg, Clarke misses it completely and the ball hits him too full on leg just over the boot. There is an appeal and the finger goes up. The replay shows it was hitting the leg stump. In complete disarray, Australia!

      29.5  OUT! Swann gets his third! Australia have lost half their side! Flighted up on middle and off, the ball bounces sharply and takes the glove as Smith looks to defend. The ball lobs up towards Bell's left and he turns after going right at first, to take a good reaction catch. Swann is turning the tale England's way on this dry and grippy surface.

      45.4  OUT! That's the end of Haddin. Flighted and full, outside off, gets down for the sweep and finds a minor top edge which is collected by Trott at first slip with a leap. Australia are nine down with 58 still needed to avoid the follow-on.

      38.6  OUT! We have a run out now, probably the last thing Australia would have wanted. Haddin tries to swipe that one away, doesn't connect well and the ball rolls behind. Agar comes halfway down and is sent back. He is late as the throw is good and Anderson did well to get back to the stumps. He collected the ball and whacked the stumps. Australia seven down, 66 more needed to avoid the follow-on.

      114.1  OUT! Australia's weird plan works! A full delivery around the off stump, Root who has been denied the strike through some smart field placements, has given in to the frustration as he leans across to the off stump and looks to scoop the ball over fine leg. The ball goes close to his helmet as he takes his eyes off the ball and miscues it straight into the hands of Smith at third man. Kudos to Root as he thought of playing selflessly and not waste any time. Prior is forced to accompany Root as Cook calls for the declaration.

      12.2  OUT! Trott goes for a six-ball duck! England in a slight tricky situation. Good length delivery, outside off and nipping in a bit. Trott was in two minds and pushes, the ball takes an inside edge and meets the off stump. This is good bowling by Siddle and Australia doing well.

Shortish delivery, on the middle, Bresnan swats it away with the pull. He plays it uppishly towards mid-wicket and straight into the hands of Rogers in the ring. A good applause as Bresnan walks back.

A back of a length delivery outside the off stump, Bairstow chases the ball and looks to force the ball through the off side and gets an edge that Haddin takes with ease. Not a great deal of celebration from the Aussies. This can't even be termed as a consolation wicket.

      6.4  OUT! That is dead plumb! Anderson strikes for England and Watson is out leg before, again. Incoming full delivery, Watson gets his bat down late and is struck right in front of the middle stump. Loud appeal and the finger goes up. Watson looked too embarrassed to even ask for a review this time. He made a mistake in the first innings, not again. Australia one down. The Hotspot detects a white spot but it was probably of the bat brushing the pads. No inside edge.

      9.5  OUT! Bowled 'em! Rogers leaves it alone and finds his off stump down. It was the straighter one, landed on off and came in a bit with the drift. Rogers didn't pick it at all and just shouldered his arms. Australia are two down quickly and looking in trouble.

      49.6  OUT! Root gets his man, finally. Khawaja departs after a patient knock. Flighted delivery, around off, Khawaja pushes at it and edges it behind towards second slip. Anderson accepts the catch and this time the finger goes up. Root is on fire! He has two now and looks jubilant.

      15.3  OUT! Hughes departs and Swann's on a rampage! The straighter one, on the middle, Hughes presses forward and misses. The ball strikes him on the front pad and there is a loud appeal. The finger goes up, batsmen have a chat and Hughes opts for DRS. The replay shows it was just clipping the leg stump and stays on the umpire's call.

      47.2  OUT! Root is having a wonderful game, he gets Clarke! Bowls a tossed up delivery, flighted down the leg side. Clarke goes for the flick and plays it straight into the hands of Cook at leg slip. Root has his second Test wicket and goes flying around the Lord's. The partnership that was looking good has been broken.

      50.5  OUT! Smith has to walk! It was a length ball, outside off, nipped in and Smith missed it inside the line. There was some noise and Prior collected it well with a dive. They went up and so did the umpire's finger. Smith immediately called for the review but there was a minor spot on the Hotspot which confirmed an inside edge. He is furious and has to walk back. Australia six down and it is Tea on Day 4.

      61.6  OUT! Complete misjudgement from Haddin! Flighted up on middle, straightens after landing as Haddin comes forward but strangely decides to offer no shot. The ball was pitching in line, Swann and the English players knew that, so did Haddin and umpire Dharmasena who raises his finger immediately after the appeal is put in place. Haddin was the last recognized batsman and Swann has picked up his third.

      54.5  OUT! Seven down now Australia! Agar hadn't walked earlier but is forced to now! A full delivery just outside off stump, Agar has a good swing of the bat as he brings it down with a high back lift to drive it. The ball goes past the edge and there is a sound as well. Prior catches the ball and the English players appeal while Erasmus thinks the ball did not take anything. Replays don't show an edge on Hotspot but the third umpire cites the noise on the usual speed replay to send Agar back. Everybody, but Australia want to have the Sunday night without the worry of the fifth day. Agar walks back, shaking his head.

      76.1  OUT! Brilliant delivery! A good length delivery around off stump, tails in sharply with some reverse swing and goes through Siddle's defenses to shatter the off stump. His stubborn innings that lasted 62 deliveries has come to an end and England are just a wicket away from victory. The wicket has got the quiet crowd stirred up now.

      90.3  OUT! Australia have folded! England have won by 347 runs! Flighted delivery on middle and off stump, Pattinson who has kept out almost everything this evening misses one and is struck right in front. Swann and co. appeal pretty hard and Dharmasena raises his finger much to the joy of the English players and the local crowd. England have gone 2-0 up in the series.
