147.2 - J Root to Johnson, byes, FOUR, no chance for Buttler down leg. Root slipped it down leg and Buttler despite moving across didn't get there. Runs away down the slope

145.0 - Mark Wood to Johnson, FOUR, thumped by Johnson. Stand and deliver stuff. It was bowled on a back of a length and outside off, enough width for Johnson to rock back and time the back foot punch. In the air but through cover-point for a lovely boundary

142.4 - Mark Wood to Johnson, FOUR, clubbed! Full and outside off, Johnson stands still and hammers through the line wide of mid-off. Hit pretty hard and the fielder didn't even chase it. Starc liked that from Johnson and had a smile after the boundary

138.1 - Mark Wood to Nevill, FOUR, short and wide, Nevill upper cuts it to bisect the gap between slip and gully to perfection and it runs away to third man for a boundary

137.4 - J Root to Nevill, FOUR, Nevill uses his feet well to this delivery that is bowled slightly slower in the air and lofts it over wide mid-on for a boundary

136.5 - Mark Wood to S Smith, FOUR, a tad fuller from Wood, Smith brings out an extravagant flick to play it through deep backward square leg for a boundary. The man in the deep had no chance there

135.2 - J Root to Nevill, FOUR, more pain as now Nevill gets four. He just whipped it past the diving short mid-wicket fielder, got to the pitch and though it was in the air it was wide of the fielder. Raced away

134.5 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, There it is! Smith has done it. His maiden double hundred in Tests and what a moment that is. He emulates Jason Dizzy Gillespie who was the last Aussie to get a double hundred overseas. Gillespie did it in 2006 as a nightwatchman against Bangladesh. Would you believe that it was Gillespie who got a double hundred last for Australia overseas! Believe it now. Smith has corrected that stat today at the home of cricket - Lord's. What a place and what a ground to get your maiden double hundred. He will cherish this moment forever. He gets there with a whip off the pads, beating the dive of Stokes at mid-wicket. Timed too well for Stokes and the celebrations begin. Off comes the helmet and then he swings the bat wildly through the air. All the emotion coming out. Well appreciated by the crowd at Lord's. Another milestone ticked by the talented Smith

133.1 - J Root to S Smith, FOUR, poor first delivery from Root, short and wide outside off, Smith rocks back and punches through point, the area is vacant and the ball runs away to the fence. All that Smith needed to do was to hit it in the gap and did so comfortably

132.0 - J Anderson to Nevill, leg byes, FOUR, straying down leg, Nevill tries to flick, misses, it hits him on the pad, and scurries to the boundary boards. Buttler dives to his left, but to no avail there

131.3 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, good length delivery and outside off, Smith stays back in the crease on a slow wicket and steers it to third man for a boundary. Remember there is no third man in place

130.4 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, Smith brings out the slog sweep to this delivery that is bowled on middle and leg and hits it over deep mid-wicket for a boundary. The fielder at mid-wicket who was Stokes didn't pick up the ball at all

127.2 - J Anderson to Nevill, FOUR, short and wide, Nevill flashes hard at it as he tries the cut shot, it was in the air, the gully fielder tries to get a hand on it, but it flies past him for a boundary

127.0 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, short and wide from Moeen, Smith does well to open the face and cut it to third man for a boundary. He used the width on offer well there

125.0 - Moeen Ali to Nevill, FOUR, delicately played by Nevill. He saw the width on that and then guided it with an open face past slip. This time the chasing fielder is beaten as the ball runs away to the fence

121.4 - Broad to M Marsh, FOUR, streaky and four, on a good length and shaping away from outside off, Marsh hangs his bat at that, gets a thick edge and the ball races away to the fence in a hurry. Frustration for Broad

119.4 - Broad to M Marsh, FOUR, off the mark in style. It was nothing but a forward push from Marsh, fullish and around off, Marsh presents the straightest of bats and eases it through the vacant mid-off region, raced away to the fence

116.2 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, very poor delivery from Moeen Ali, half-tracker and a real one at that, Smith rocks back and pulls it through square leg, beats mid-wicket chasing. Too easy for a man in the form of his life

113.0 - Moeen Ali to Voges, FOUR, Moeen Ali was appealing for lbw when Voges paddled that from the middle of the bat. Voges took it from outside off and though it was pre-meditated he got it fine and beat the fielder from deep backward square

111.5 - Stokes to Voges, FOUR, overpitched from Stokes and Voges puts him away wide of mid-off. Needed to hit the gap and Voges did so. Getting his weight forward and then crashing the drive along the carpet

111.2 - Stokes to Voges, FOUR, poor delivery and Stokes grimaces. Down leg, clipped to fine leg beating deep backward square who is very square

110.3 - Moeen Ali to Voges, FOUR, fabulous shot from Voges. There is a short mid-wicket, mid-wicket and a mid-on but he has whipped that wide of all three. Ala VVS, tossed up from Moeen Ali and Voges used his great bottom hand to brilliant effect. A pleasing boundary

109.2 - Stokes to S Smith, FOUR, and when Stokes overpitches, Smith is good enough to cash in. Full and outside off, Smith thumps the drive through the off-side cordon, beats short cover on the way to the fence. Played on a bent knee and looked lovely as he essayed the stroke

108.5 - Mark Wood to Voges, FOUR, Voges is off the mark with a cracking pull. Dug in short outside off, too easy for Voges to rock back and time a pull through mid-wicket. That sat up to be hit and Voges obliged

105.3 - Stokes to S Smith, FOUR, 150 for Smith. His dream run continues in Tests. Gets to the landmark with a punchy on-drive. Stokes bowls it on a fuller length outside off, Smith shuffles across and then times the drive, beats mid-on easily and it races away. A raise of the bat and a shake of the hand and he gets back to business. Well appreciated by the touring Fanatics and the Lord's crowd

98.2 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, emphatic pull. Dug in short with no real pace. Around the chest area, Smith swivels and pulls to the deep backward square leg fence, almost went all the way

95.3 - Broad to Chris Rogers, FOUR, Chris Rogers has driven very well. Well in control of that again as Broad overpitches, he eases it past a diving cover, once it beat the fielder it raced away

94.2 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, too full from Anderson and Smith leans into a glorious on-drive. Shows the full face of the bat and beats mid-on. Terrific timing on the shot and so good to see Smith displaying the broadest of blades to put that away

92.3 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, too full from Anderson and Smith leans into the cover drive. Opened the bat face and got it in the gap through cover. Raced away

91.0 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, Anderson has a wry smile on his face after getting hit for four. Full and outside off, Chris Rogers opens the face of the bat and square drives, to the right of backward point, the fielder was just ball-watching that time

90.3 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, that should give him confidence, Anderson overpitches outside off and Chris Rogers plays the drive late and beats a diving Lyth from extra cover, leant on the stroke and eased it in the gap

87.5 - Broad to Chris Rogers, FOUR, full and driving length on offer, Rogers accepts the chance and drives it wide of mid-off, sublime timing on that occasion. Wood put in a dive but failed to stop the ball

86.2 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, 20th February 2014 was the last time he made a hundred, since then he was hungry to make big scores, after scoring a heap of fifties he manages to score a big ton and now converts into a mammoth one. Also his highest score in Test match cricket, he pushes and gets a thick edge through gully to this length delivery towards third man. Hugs his partner and acknowledges the support from the crowd.

84.2 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, length delivery well wide of off, Smith throws his arms at it as he slaps the cut through cover

83.5 - Mark Wood to S Smith, FOUR, short and sitting up nicely for Smith, he waits for the ball to arrive, fetches it from outside off and pulls it through mid-wicket, no need to run for those

82.3 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, yes! yes! yes! The expression from Rogers as he clobbers the drive through cover, full and outside off, Rogers creams the drive through cover

82.0 - Mark Wood to S Smith, FOUR, no bludgeoning there, just easy as you like, full and in the slot, Smith drives it through cover with soft hands, he timed that to perfection

75.2 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, from round the wicket, Stokes bowls it too straight, Rogers tries to nurdle it through fine leg, gets an inside edge, but it scurries to the boundary boards

73.5 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, fuller length and nips away from Rogers, he gets opened up, as he tries to work it through the on-side, gets an outside edge, but it goes past the slip cordon for a boundary through third man. Stokes deserved more there

73.2 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, Stokes drags his length back slightly, Rogers waits on the back foot and steers it to third man for a boundary. 200-run stand between the two

72.2 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, this one was going down leg, Smith tries to work it away through fine leg, gets it onto the glove and it runs past Buttler for a boundary

71.3 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, very full and straying down leg, Rogers whips it away through deep mid-wicket for a boundary. It deserved the punishment and it was bowled down leg

71.1 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, a bit of width on offer from Stokes, Rogers punches it past the right of backward point for a boundary. Good timing by Rogers

69.1 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, Rogers has composed his fifth hundred. Fuller and outside off, Rogers drives it through mid-on and collects another boundary. Rogers can relax now as he has missed out on the three-figure mark on many occasions. Rogers pumps his right fist and says yes. He also acknowledges the crowd and celebrates it with his teammate. To make it better, Clarke whistled from the balcony

67.1 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, Smith has essayed his 10th century. It was a long hop, Smith just takes it from the off-stump and pulls it in front of square on the on-side for a boundary. He takes off his helmet and raises his bat to acknowledge the crowd and the dressing room

66.0 - Moeen Ali to Chris Rogers, FOUR, short delivery from Moeen, Rogers stays back in the crease and punches it past extra cover for a boundary. Root gives the chase but didn't put in the dive

65.1 - Moeen Ali to Chris Rogers, FOUR, this was dragged down by Moeen Ali. Rogers stays back in the crease and late cuts it to third man for another boundary

64.5 - Broad to S Smith, FOUR, too straight from Broad. Smith shuffles across towards the off-stump and flicks it past mid-on for a boundary. It again went down the slope and that meant the ball travelled quickly

63.2 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, lovely shot from Smith. He uses the feet to this tossed up delivery and drives it back down the pitch for a boundary. Dismissive from Smith

59.2 - Moeen Ali to Chris Rogers, FOUR, another late cut and this time from Rogers. The track is slow and Moeen again dragged it short, this allowed Rogers to go back in the crease and late cut it for a boundary

52.5 - Mark Wood to Chris Rogers, FOUR, punched off the back foot, he let the short of length delivery to come, played it late but hit it from the middle of the bat, the ball rolls through cover-point and the fast outfield takes it to the boundary

52.0 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, poor ball, short and way outside off stump, Rogers reaches out for the cut shot, sends it to the left of the fielder at backward point to pick up a boundary. 100 partnership comes up with that hit

46.5 - Mark Wood to Chris Rogers, FOUR, square-driven and it's in the gap as well. Full and wide outside off stump, Rogers reaches out, bends his knees and sends it to the right of backward point, Stokes had no chance though

45.3 - Stokes to S Smith, FOUR, Stokes has his wish, but unfortunately for him the outside edge doesn't go to hand. Full and well outside off stump, Smith goes for the cover-drive, gets a thick edge, second slip dives to his right but it was well wide of him

42.3 - J Root to Chris Rogers, FOUR, this is excellent cricket from Rogers, Root dropped one short and just outside off, Rogers waits on it, uses the pace on the ball and cuts it behind point for a boundary

41.4 - Stokes to S Smith, FOUR, nicely played by Smith, this was full and wide from Stokes, almost the half-volley length, Smith plays with an open face and slices it behind backward point for a boundary

39.3 - Moeen Ali to Chris Rogers, FOUR, lovely shot, Moeen drops one short and well outside off, Rogers waits on it and cuts it late, beats short third man and races away to the fence

38.2 - J Root to Chris Rogers, FOUR, nicely played by Rogers, flighted delivery and wider outside off, Rogers gets forward with an open face, finds the gap past point and races away to the fence in a hurry

34.5 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, lovely shot, back of a length and well outside off, Smith gets on top of the bounce and cracks it to the right of backward point, beats the diving fielder and races away to the fence

30.1 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, Smith rivals Rogers with another cracking square-cut! Width on offer from Anderson, Smith stands tall and punches it square past point, no need to run for those

30.0 - Broad to Chris Rogers, FOUR, fifty for Rogers, his 13th in Tests and the 8th in his last 9 innings. Width on offer from Broad, the length was on the shorter side as well. Rogers gets on top of the bounce and cracks it square on the off-side, races away to the fence for a boundary

20.2 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, Smith drives through Moeen Ali's hands. Gets four. Skips out and takes it on the full, a firm drive and straight through Moeen's hands. That should've been stopped

18.3 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, fabulous from Smith. Comes down the track and then drives through cover. Took it on the half-volley and put it away. All along the carpet. Sweet from Smith

14.2 - Moeen Ali to Warner, FOUR, that is more of a slog but Warner gets four again. Takes a step forward and swipes across the line, bit of a thick inside edge and it runs away through mid-wicket. Warner looking to be positive and take the game on against Moeen Ali early on

14.1 - Moeen Ali to Warner, FOUR, first ball from Moeen Ali and Warner is on him in a flash. Full toss on the stumps, heaved away over mid-wicket. Saw that early and put it away

13.2 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, full outside off, Anderson looking for the swing but overpitches and Chris Rogers leans into a square drive, opens the face of the bat and gets it wide of point, the ball skims away into the fence

13.0 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, forward defence for four! Nothing more than that and it's four through cover. Again Warner showing off his timing and skill. Stands there and just defends off the front foot. The ball pings off the middle of the bat and races away. Warner held the pose after playing that. Bit of aggro from the muscular Warner

12.2 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, stand and deliver. On top of the bounce. It was a back of a length delivery outside off, Warner took a step forward and crunched it on the rise through cover. In the gap and four. Nonchalant and disdainful from Warner

11.5 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, what timing from Chris Rogers. Flicked off the hips and the ball is racing across the turf, Mark Wood sprints a long way from fine leg and dives to try and stop it. The ball deflects off his elbow and hits the ad-cushions. The timing was pristine that time from Chris Rogers

11.4 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, byes, FOUR, the inswinger goes wrong and Buttler had no chance diving to his right. Well down leg and called four byes. Buttler didn't like the umpire's call. He wanted it to be signalled wides

10.4 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, full and on the stumps, clipped wide of the short straight mid-on, this time the front foot didn't get in the way and the bat came down straight. Nice timing and raced away

10.1 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, smashed by Warner. Bit of width outside off, Warner stays on the crease and thumps a fierce cut through cover-point

8.5 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, fraction short on the stumps, Warner is onto it in a flash and rockets a pull through mid-wicket. Rocked back and then put it away

6.0 - Broad to Chris Rogers, FOUR, nicely punched by Chris Rogers. It was angling back in, Chris Rogers got forward and timed it past Moeen Ali at short mid-on

4.2 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, good short delivery and Chris Rogers played that pretty well. Even though he was on the hop and fending out a little, he played that down and in the gap between third slip and gully. Once it went into the gap it was four to the vacant third man fence

0.5 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, nothing streaky about that. Lovely drive. Controlled too. Head over the ball, the feet moved in line and the bat came through to meet it, sends it wide of mid-off and the ball raced away. The balance was spot on that time when Chris Rogers played that

0.3 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, edged and over third slip! Chris Rogers is off the mark with a scratchy shot. Full and outside off, Chris Rogers went for the drive and got a healthy edge, Root at third slip tried to take an overhead catch but the ball went flying over his hands. Didn't even get a finger on it

146.2 - Moeen Ali to Starc, SIX, good strike. Saw the tossed up delivery on the stumps and lifted it over wide long-on. Clean strike and went all the way. Used his reach to good effect there

66.1 - J Root to S Smith, SIX, from round the wicket, Root tossed up this delivery, Smith just uses his feet and lofts it straight down the ground for a six. Lovely extension of arms from Smith there

149.0 - Broad to Johnson, out Caught by J Anderson!! Australia have declared after that wicket! Johnson again makes room to a length delivery, he skews it off the toe end of the bat to Anderson at mid-off, who sets himself under it and completes the catch. Johnson's bottom hand came off the bat handle there. Now, it will be interesting to see how Australia will bowl on a flat deck. Johnson c J Anderson b Broad 15(33) [4s-2]

141.3 - J Root to Nevill, out Caught by Moeen Ali!! Nevill's innings comes to an end. It was a tossed up delivery and bowled very full outside off, Nevill drives it uppishly to mid-off, Moeen, the fielder, dives forward and takes the catch with both hands, just inches above the ground. Moeen, the fielder, signalled to the batsman that he took it cleanly and the batsman accepted it. Good sportsman spirit on show. Nevill c Moeen Ali b J Root 45(59) [4s-5]

139.4 - J Root to S Smith, out Lbw!! Well, finally Smith's long vigil at the crease comes to an end. He brings out the reverse sweep to this flatter delivery, misses, is rapped on the pads, Root belts out an appeal and the umpire raises the finger. However, Smith goes up for the review, the replays show that the impact was umpire's call and it is hitting off-stump. So the on-field decision stays. Smith walks back to the pavilion to a standing ovation from the crowd. S Smith lbw b J Root 215(346) [4s-25 6s-1]

123.3 - Broad to M Marsh, out Bowled!! Broad continues to pick up wickets. This stayed a touch low from Broad, Marsh gets caught in the crease, tries to defend, hits the bottom of the bat, then onto the pad, rolls away towards the stumps and the middle-stump is pegged back. In fact, it was just a 77mph delivery but the batsman was done in by the uneven bounce there. He also rolled his fingers on the ball there. M Marsh b Broad 12(15) [4s-2]

119.3 - Broad to Voges, out Caught by Buttler!! Just the start England would have hoped for. Voges has a look at the pitch and then makes the long walk back to the pavilion. It was a beauty from Broad. He goes wide of the crease, angles it in before getting it to straighten, Voges plays for the angle, comes forward to defend, the ball kisses the outside edge and settles neatly into Buttler's gloves. Dharmasena had his finger up in a flash. Voges c Buttler b Broad 25(47) [4s-5]

106.5 - Mark Wood to Clarke, out Caught by Ballance!! Soft, soft dismissal. Third time in three innings that Clarke has got out in a very uncharacteristic fashion. Short around off, Clarke splices the pull straight to the fielder at square leg. Ballance leaps and takes a comfortable catch. Mark Wood can't believe his luck, has a wry smile and covers his face with his hand. Clarke didn't roll his wrists on the shot and therefore didn't keep it down. Clarke c Ballance b Mark Wood 7(32)

95.4 - Broad to Chris Rogers, out Bowled!! Inside edge and gone. End of Chris Rogers. He walks off to a standing ovation. This was full and swung in a little, on the stumps, Chris Rogers' feet didn't move, he looked for another drive but the ball took the inside edge and then pad before falling on the stumps. A mammoth stand has been broken. Chris Rogers b Broad 173(300) [4s-28]

15.0 - Moeen Ali to Warner, out Caught by J Anderson!! Warner gifts his wicket away. 'It is a disappointing dismissal David' says Ricky Ponting on air. He is right. There was no need to play that shot. He had already dominated Moeen Ali and looks for the big hit again. Moeen Ali does him in flight, dropping the ball short of the advancing Warner who skews the loft towards mid-off. Anderson backtracks from mid-off and holds onto a good catch. He made it look simple but that's how good Anderson is as a fielder. The complete athlete. Replays show that Warner got it off the outside half of the bat. Warner c J Anderson b Moeen Ali 38(42) [4s-7]

142.0 - J Root to Starc, no run, did that carry to Buttler? Even if it did it was a very tough chance. Starc saw the tossed up delivery outside off and slogged, got a thick under edge which was dying on Buttler, hits the pad of the keeper and dies down. Can't call that a drop, would be very harsh to do so

49.4 - Stokes to S Smith, no run, edgedddd, did that carry? Looked like Bell got up a bit too early. Oh that's a dropped catch. Full and outside off stump, Smith goes for the drive, once again plays away from the body, gets a thick edge, Bell was the man at second slip, it just about carried to him but he couldn't hold on. Stokes throws his head back in disappointment. How costly is that going to be?

132.4 - Moeen Ali to Nevill, no run, well, England take a review, but it turns out to be they were too optimistic. Moeen gets it to turn, Nevill tries to work it away through the on-side, misses and is rapped on the pads. On review, it turns out that the impact was in line, and the ball was just clipping the outside half of leg-stump

109.5 - Stokes to Voges, no run, we have the first review of the game. For an lbw appeal - not given by Dharmasena. Cook reluctantly went for the review. He initially suggested that Voges may have got an inside edge onto the pad but then signalled for the review. No bat on HotSpot and also Snicko confirms the same. Impact umpire's call and just clipping top of off. Dharmasena's decision stays. It nipped back in and missed the inside edge of Voges, two sounds was the ball brushing both pads. It was a marginal decision and went in favour of the batsman

87.1 - Broad to S Smith, 1 run, 250 of the partnership comes up. This was angled in on the pads, Smith shuffles across and tucks it behind square on the on-side for a single. Clarke is all smiles

48.1 - Mark Wood to S Smith, 1 run, 12th Test fifty for Smith and he raises his bat to the crowd and the dressing room. Short of a length delivery on the leg stump, Smith works it behind square on the on-side to get to the milestone

89.1 - Hazlewood to J Anderson, FOUR, no one at mid-on and that's a safe shot! Full and swinging back in, Anderson doesn't try to do anything fancy, just presents the full face of the bat and plays a punchy-drive

87.1 - Hazlewood to Broad, FOUR, Broad's not going to hang around here. Full and outside off stump, Broad throws his bat at it after clearing the front leg, drove that with an angled bat and it flew through cover-point

87.0 - Starc to Mark Wood, FOUR, shortish and angling across the right-hander, Wood plays a half-hearted pull, but makes good enough contact to clear mid-wicket, Mitch Marsh gives chase, slides and flicks it back, but was touching the rope

82.5 - Starc to Broad, byes, FOUR, oh hello! where did that come from Mr. Starc? Bouncer and not a troubling line from Starc, it was so high that Nevill's full length leap couldn't gather the ball, raced away to the fine leg fence, Broad ducked under it so early on that occasion.

79.1 - Lyon to Moeen Ali, FOUR, Ali is looking dangerous here, he wants to take on the off-spinner, this was tossed up outside off, Ali advances and looks to loft it over the bowler's head, didn't time it that well, Lyon gets a fingertip to that as he stretched his right hand, but it had enough power to race away to the long-off fence. Harsh to call it as a drop

78.0 - Lyon to Moeen Ali, FOUR, short and outside off, Ali cuts it square of the wicket, timed it so well, it raced away

77.0 - M Marsh to Cook, FOUR, Cook is now just one hit away from his century, Marsh splays it on the pads, Cook whips it behind square on the on-side, superb timing on that occasion

73.0 - M Marsh to Moeen Ali, leg byes, FOUR, fires it down leg, Ali looks to flick, misses and the ball runs away to the fine leg fence off his pads

71.4 - Johnson to Cook, FOUR, angled across wide of off, Cook gets into good position as he cuts it square of the wicket, he got it off the middle of the bat

69.5 - Lyon to Moeen Ali, FOUR, Moeen was in total control of this sweep though, gets down on his knees, rolls his wrists and finds the gap between the two fielders in the deep, positive cricket from the England number eight

69.0 - Hazlewood to Cook, byes, FOUR, a rare blemish from Nevill, this was banged in short and angled across the left-hander, it went further after passing the batsman. Nevill moved across in front of first slip and failed to collect it cleanly, Clarke at first slip was taking evasive action and the ball runs away to the fence

68.5 - Hazlewood to Cook, FOUR, short and angling down the leg-side, Cook swivels across, rolls his wrists and helps it on its way to the fine leg boundary

66.5 - Starc to Moeen Ali, FOUR, close call for Moeen, Starc has two men square on the on-side, for the clip shot, this one was in the air, but it goes to the left of Rogers at short square leg, races away to the boundary

66.3 - Starc to Moeen Ali, FOUR, cracking shot, wide half-volley from Starc, not a bad idea, he has four slips waiting for Moeen's edge, but this one flies off the middle of the bat, beats point and races away to the fence

65.0 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, Cook is looking in excellent touch, this was full and wide from Starc, Cook leans into the cover-drive, no need to run for those, the ball races across the fast outfield, two lovely shots from Cook in this over and he's raced away to 76

64.2 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, cracking shot, overpitched and on the stumps, Cook prods forward, presents the full face of the bat and plays a sumptous looking on-drive, no need to run for those as the ball races away past mid-on

63.2 - Johnson to Cook, FOUR, loose delivery from Johnson, too straight and on Cook's pads, flicked away past the keeper, the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

62.0 - Johnson to Buttler, FOUR, fuller length delivery and shaping away from outside off, Buttler leans into the drive and places it wide of mid-off. Hazlewood puts in a tired looking dive and misses. Rogers sprints behind the ball from cover, but it was always beating him to the fence

61.0 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, poor ball from Starc, this was short and well outside off, Cook gets on top of the bounce and dabs it square behind point, moves into the sixties with that boundary

58.4 - Starc to Buttler, FOUR, lovely shot, very full and wide outside off from Starc, Buttler reaches out for the drive and caresses it through cover, beats the fielder at mid-off and races away to the fence

55.0 - M Marsh to Buttler, FOUR, Buttler gets off the mark and denies Marsh a wicket maiden. Full and angling in, Buttler flicks and gets it down to fine leg which is vacant. He is strong off the toes

53.4 - Johnson to Cook, byes, FOUR, no chance for Nevill. First byes conceded by the debutant in the match. No fault of his though. Johnson went for the inswinging yorker and slipped it well down leg, beats the dive of the keeper and races away

53.0 - M Marsh to Stokes, FOUR, fraction short outside off and Stokes gets four more. Got on top of the bounce and cut it wide of Lyon at backward point. Once it went down the hill, there was no way Lyon could've stopped that

52.5 - M Marsh to Stokes, FOUR, Stokes gets lucky! Went after a full and wide delivery outside off, the thick outside edge flew over the slips and wide of gully. Right between the two men. There is no third slip and it raced away. Still no third man

50.0 - S Smith to Stokes, FOUR, you can expect Smith to bowl a bad ball every now and then. Very short outside off, Stokes rocks back and thumps a back foot shot wide of the diving short cover. Beats the sweeper easily

40.1 - Hazlewood to Stokes, FOUR, another free flowing drive from Stokes. He plays them really well, overpitched from Hazlewood, on the stumps, Stokes drove it past the non-striker and the stumps, raced away

39.3 - Lyon to Cook, FOUR, aggression from Cook. He comes down the track and then lofts Lyon over his head, well wide of mid-off. A flat hit and went for four. Will he continue to take on Lyon?

36.5 - Johnson to Stokes, FOUR, even though Stokes was hurried by that short ball, he gets four with a pull. Bounced on him awkwardly and he was cramped on the shot, more off the splice of the bat but in the gap at mid-wicket. No boundary riders and it will be another four to Stokes

35.4 - Hazlewood to Cook, FOUR, an open faced defence wide of gully and it is four. On a good length and outside off, Cook got forward and then let it run off the bat face, neatly played and since third man region is vacant he will get four

34.3 - Johnson to Stokes, FOUR, third consecutive fifty plus score for Stokes at Lord's this summer. That is some record. Full and outside off, Stokes leant on it and timed the cover drive. Raced away through cover. Beautifully played and he raises the bat to cheers from the crowd. He needs to kick on though

33.3 - Hazlewood to Cook, FOUR, bang! No pace on the short delivery, banged in outside off, Cook swivels and pulls through the vacant square leg area, over short leg. Didn't try to hit it down and pulled it well. Hazlewood needs to put more effort into the short delivery to create any issues for the England captain

30.5 - Johnson to Stokes, FOUR, nicely cut by Stokes. Short and outside off, Stokes hops and slashes it wide of backward point, it was in the air but in the gap. Stokes had to ride the extra bounce and did so very well

29.4 - Hazlewood to Stokes, FOUR, this delivery opened Stokes up. Lucky that the outside edge didn't go to hand. There was no gully and it went wide of the four slips. If there was a gully would've carried comfortably to hand. The slope again acting against Stokes, it came in and then held its line, Stokes was looking to work it to leg and got lucky

21.2 - Lyon to Stokes, FOUR, Stokes is batting with bravado here. He uses his feet, comes close to this floated up delivery, hits it against the spin over mid-on for a boundary

18.4 - Hazlewood to Cook, FOUR, short delivery and Cook rarely misses out on playing the pull. He just picks the length quickly, gets in a great position and pulls it in front of square on the on-side for a boundary

18.0 - Starc to Stokes, FOUR, Stokes is very good in the 'V'. He just shows a glimpse of it by punching this very full delivery through long-off for a boundary. He used that shot to great effect at the WACA when he cracked a ton

17.3 - Starc to Stokes, FOUR, full and on the pads, any left-hander loves it there. He clips it away through deep backward square leg for a boundary. The fielder in the deep had no chance there

17.0 - Hazlewood to Stokes, FOUR, Geez! English batsmen continue to leave on tenterhooks. This was bowled on a back of a length and nipped away from Stokes, he gets opened up, gets an outside edge, there was no fourth slip in place. If there was a fourth slip in place it would have carried to him

15.5 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, straying down leg from Starc, Cook is very good there as he just covers for the inswing and flicks it to deep square leg for a boundary

12.5 - Johnson to Stokes, FOUR, fuller and just straying down leg, Stokes flicks it to long-on for a boundary. Good timing on that one from Stokes. Good balance shown by Stokes, too

8.1 - Johnson to Ballance, FOUR, very full delivery from Johnson, Ballance leans into it superbly and drives it through long-off for a boundary. Warner trieed to hunt it down but to no avail. Ballance again played late there

5.1 - Hazlewood to Ballance, FOUR, fuller and shapes away from the left-hander, Ballance gets opened up slightly, gets a leading edge, Lyon from backward point tries to hunt it down, but his foot just about had touched the rope when he slid to cut it off and it turns out to be a boundary

4.5 - Starc to Ballance, FOUR, Ballance is lucky there. It again angled in from Starc, Ballance gets inside the line and steers it to the right of the fifth slip for a boundary. It was a tough chance for Marsh, who dived but didn't get a hand onto it

3.1 - Hazlewood to Cook, FOUR, full and straying down leg, Cook easily clips it past deep backward square leg for a boundary. The fielder in the deep tries to hunt it down, but to no avail

0.3 - Starc to Ballance, FOUR, fuller and just straying down leg, Ballance plays late by staying back in the crease and works it away past fine leg for a boundary

76.0 - Lyon to Moeen Ali, SIX, that's as straight as a dead straight line, tossed up nicely on the stumps, Ali stays in the crease and lifts it straight down the ground. That's the Ali we know, isn't it? He made that look so easy

21.5 - Lyon to Stokes, SIX, Stokes again uses his feet to a floated up delivery and lofts it straight down the ground for a six. Lovely use of the feet there from Stokes. Even though he didn't get to the pitch of it, he lofted it through the line and the ball went into the spectators

90.1 - Johnson to Broad, out Caught by (sub)S Marsh!! England are bowled out for 312. That was a good catch by Marsh at first slip. For a moment he thought Clarke would go for it at second slip, but reacted just in time to move to his left and reverse-cup it. Broad once again plays away from the body as looks to drive and gets a thick outside edge to this full delivery. Broad c (sub)S Marsh b Johnson 21(45) [4s-1]

87.5 - Hazlewood to Mark Wood, out Bowled!! Through the gate! Wood not quick enough to bring his bat down and the off pole is out of the ground. Full delivery pitching outside off stump, the ball just holds its line, Wood, who was late on the attempted drive, played outside the line of the ball and missed it completely. Third wicket for Hazlewood. Mark Wood b Hazlewood 4(7) [4s-1]

85.4 - Hazlewood to Moeen Ali, out Lbw!! That was absolutely plumb in front. As soon as Hazlewood appeals, it was more of a running appeal as he was so sure about this, umpire Kumar Dharmasena nods and raises his finger. Nothing but an inswinger on a good length from Hazlewood, once again lazy footwork from Moeen Ali, he doesn't get forward to this ball, hangs in the crease and tries to keep it out, but misses and the ball hits him right in front of middle stump. Hawk-Eye shows that the ball would have hit middle stump. Moeen Ali lbw b Hazlewood 39(57) [4s-5 6s-1]

78.2 - M Marsh to Cook, out Bowled!! Can you believe it? Cook after batting with sheer patience and determination gets out chasing a wide delivery. He walks off to a standing ovation, he knows that the job is not yet done. Coming to the ball, this was slightly fuller and wide of off, it stayed low too, Cook who left those balls all day was tempted to play at that, maybe he was thinking about his hundred. He chased the ball and the inside edge clattered the stumps. Mitchell Marsh is pumped and so are the Australians. Mitch Marsh is yet to pick a right-hander's wicket in Test matches though. Cook b M Marsh 96(233) [4s-13]

65.1 - Lyon to Buttler, out Caught by Nevill!! Buttler walks! Lyon has struck with his first delivery, he wasn't convinced there was a nick, Nevill was more interested in effecting a stumping. The loudest appeals came from the two slips and umpire Dharmasena points out that the batsman has already walked. Nicely bowled by Lyon, tossed up just outside off, lures Buttler into the forward push, he was playing for the turn, this one went straight on, gets a faint edge and Nevill does the rest. Big wicket for Australia, Buttler could have been very dangerous. Buttler c Nevill b Lyon 13(26) [4s-3]

54.1 - M Marsh to Stokes, out Bowled!! Marsh is pumped. He does the trick for Australia. Kept a bit low and Stokes has dragged it on. Stokes misses out on a Lord's ton. But he has one already here. This was angled across Stokes, the low bounce meant that the inside edge was found while Stokes tried to defend, clatters into leg stump and knocks it out. Stokes is a dejected man but has to depart the scene. Stokes b M Marsh 87(128) [4s-13 6s-1]

10.3 - Johnson to J Root, out Caught by Nevill!! Another thunderbolt from Johnson and it does the trick. It was a short delivery that was bowled outside off, Root perhaps was thinking of the previous ball, hangs back in the crease, tries to punch it, gets an outside edge to the keeper. Root just walked back to the pavilion as he knew that he had edged it. Johnson bowled this one at 91mph. England are in dire straits now. J Root c Nevill b Johnson 1(4)

9.1 - Hazlewood to Bell, out Bowled!! Got him! Hazlewood you beauty! Full and on off stump, Bell played a clumsy shot and the off stump is pegged back. Australia all over England like a rash. Bell was looking to flick that away and the late seam movement opened him up and left him looking a bit sorry there. Another failure and the bell is tolling for him. Lovely delivery from Hazlewood, on a fuller length and that tiny bit of seam movement to get the batsman out. Bell b Hazlewood 1(2)

8.3 - Johnson to Ballance, out Bowled!! The full delivery has again done the trick against Ballance. Ballance tries to drive off the back foot, it goes underneath the bat and pegs back the off-stump. Ballance's tendency to jump back in the crease led to his dismissal. He was also beaten for pace as it was bowled at 89mph. Replays for the Ballance dismissal show that the ball scooted very low after pitching. That completely did the batsman there. Also Johnson was tight on the no-ball there but managed to slide over the line after having some part of the foot behind it when it landed. Ballance b Johnson 23(31) [4s-4]

0.2 - Starc to Lyth, out Caught by Nevill!! Starc has snared a wicket of the second ball. It was a back of a length delivery that angled away from the left-hander, Lyth lazily punches at it, gets an outside edge and the keeper completes an easy catch. First catch for Nevill in Tests and it can't come easier than this. The third umpire also checked whether the bowler overstepped, but he was fine. Lyth c Nevill b Starc 0(2)

63.1 - Johnson to Cook, no run, Smith has shelled a chance, it was a tough chance though, Cook had nailed the pull. This was banged in short and on the stumps, Cook swivelled across and pulled it powerfully - towards backward square leg. Smith had little time to adjust, the ball hit his hands and pops out

77.5 - Lyon to Moeen Ali, no run, this might well be a tactical review from Australia, tossed up nicley on middle and leg, Ali fails to lay a bat as he came slightly forward to push at it, a loud appeal and Dharmasena signals "no" straightway. His verdict proved to be right though

48.0 - Lyon to Cook, 3 runs, very full on the stumps, clipped through mid-wicket. That will be fifty for Cook. Hazlewood pulls it back with a chase. They take three and that three brings up his 43rd Test fifty. 10th Ashes fifty. Again Lord's applaud and Cook gets a handshake from Stokes

41.0 - Hazlewood to Stokes, 1 run, down leg, clipped to fine leg, the stand is now worth 100. England needed that after being 30/4

40.5 - Hazlewood to Stokes, no run, always looked like it was pitching outside leg, from over the wicket, replays prove it to be true. Pitches outside leg and then beats Stokes' flick, Erasmus got that right and and Australia went for the review. They lose it

48.0 - J Root to M Marsh, FOUR, fired down leg and Marsh gets four, clipped it fine and the ball raced away to the fine leg fence

43.1 - J Root to Clarke, FOUR, lovely shot. Too much air on that tossed up delivery outside off, Clarke gets forward and times the drive through cover, all along the ground and beats sweeper cover, well-timed and a sweet stroke

41.5 - Broad to S Smith, FOUR, more runs and another thick inside edge wide of the stumps, Smith looking to go over mid-wicket and got lucky. Still no fine leg and that's a profitable area for Smith

41.4 - Broad to S Smith, FOUR, 50 for Smith. After 215 in the first innings. Broad sees the funny side of that shot. Full outside off, Smith shuffles across and then gets an inside edge through his legs on the whip, no fine leg and it raced away. Cheers from the Lord's crowd for the landmark

41.3 - Broad to S Smith, FOUR, magnificent shot. Smith leant forward and then slapped the widish delivery wide of point, there was a sweeper cover in place but he had no chance. That was hit very very hard, the fielder just had a few yards to move but couldn't get there, such was the pace on the shot

40.1 - Moeen Ali to Clarke, FOUR, beautiful shot. Clarke comes down the track and then gets to the pitch of it before lofting it inside out over mid-off, the use of the feet was the key there

39.0 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, Smith gets four more. He comes down the track and then lofts over mid-off's head. Didn't time it too well but got enough elevation to clear the man. Smith continues with his aggressive methods

38.3 - Moeen Ali to Clarke, FOUR, the field is in and Clarke goes for the slog sweep and gets four. Tossed up outside off, Clarke connected well over the infield

37.5 - Broad to S Smith, FOUR, Smith thumps it over mid-off. This was the roller, Broad rolling the fingers on that, Smith winds up and lofts over mid-off, one bounce over the ropes

34.3 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, FOUR, Smith flashes hard and gets an outside edge wide of slip. It was tossed up outside off, Smith looks to square drive and got an edge

34.0 - Mark Wood to S Smith, FOUR, Smith was eyeing that area and he gets the right ball to go under it, full outside off, Smith whips it over mid-wicket, whippity wrists and that went to the boundary. Australia pressing on the accelerator now

33.2 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, the lead is 400 now. Fraction short outside off, Warner stays back and punches it wide of cover. Down the hill and no chance for anyone on the field to track that down

30.3 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, second boundary for Smith. Pitched up and outside off, Smith gets forward and drives on the rise wide of cover. Speeded away to the fence. He timed that and placed it beautifully

29.5 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, with the angle from round the wicket, the ball will tend to go down middle and leg, that's what it does here, Warner closes the face of the bat and tickles it fine, raced away

29.0 - J Anderson to S Smith, FOUR, too full and on the pads, Smith flick it past the square leg umpire. Too easy and it raced away. Can't bowl there to Smith who is strong in that area. There was inswing for Anderson but he drifted into the wrong line

26.5 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, that's where he is so good. When it is full and wide outside off, he leans into the square drive and places it wide of the extra cover, who didn't dive. All along the ground and that will be the first boundary of the day

25.5 - J Root to Warner, FOUR, flater and down leg, poor delivery and Warner gets bat on the nudge, wide of leg-slip and the ball races away to the fence. He didn't miss out there

24.5 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, the stand is now worth 100-runs, crunched from Warner, full and in the slot, Warner muscles the drive past the bowler, hit that with some power, it raced away

23.5 - J Root to Chris Rogers, FOUR, on a good length and outside off, Rogers drives it square of the wicket, timed that well and placed that equally well too

22.0 - Stokes to Warner, FOUR, this is more convincing from Warner, short and wide, Warner opens the face of the bat and guides it through the vacant third man region. Deft touch

21.5 - Stokes to Warner, FOUR, short and width on offer, Warner goes hard on the cut, gets it off the toe-end of the bat, ball had enough power to race away. Mind you! Warner has powerful hands, short man yet muscular

17.1 - Stokes to Chris Rogers, FOUR, smacked! poor first delivery from the Durham lad, short and pulling line on offer for Rogers, he accepts the offer and powers the pull behind square on the on-side, fielder at fine leg had no chance

15.4 - Mark Wood to Chris Rogers, FOUR, juicy full toss outside off, Rogers reads it late and looks to push that hard through the off-side, gets a thick edge that flows through the vacant third man region and into the fence. It was an attempted yorker in fact

12.0 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, tickled fine to fine leg that's the 14th 50+ opening stand between Warner and Rogers in Tests. Friendly ball down the leg-side, Warner helps it on its way for four

11.5 - Mark Wood to Warner, FOUR, fullish and outside off stump, Warner leans forward and plays an excellent looking drive along the ground and beats cover to his right

10.2 - Moeen Ali to Warner, FOUR, Davey Warner has hit this between two short covers and cover-point. Flighted delivery outside off stump, it was in the slot, Warner drove it well and drove it in the gap

9.0 - Moeen Ali to Warner, FOUR, down the track and in the gap. Flighted delivery just outside off stump, Warner advances and drives it inside-out between short cover and cover-point

6.4 - J Anderson to Warner, FOUR, lovely drive! Full and outside off stump, Warner leans forward and covers for the gentle outswing, drives it along the ground through cover and it races away

5.0 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, short of length delivery down the leg-side, poor line from Anderson, Rogers tickles it fine and beats fine leg

3.0 - J Anderson to Warner, FOUR, in the airrrr and put down. That was a sitter! Short of a length delivery nipping away, Warner looks to defend, but the ball bounces extra and takes the thick outside edge, Adam Lyth was a little late to react at gully, he tried to catch it to his right, went with both hands but only managed to fingertip it to the boundary

2.1 - J Anderson to Chris Rogers, FOUR, first boundary of the Australian innings. Full and outside off stump, Rogers plays a lovely looking off-drive, it was airborne for a while and Warner had to get out of the way, mid-off had no chance though

48.5 - Moeen Ali to M Marsh, SIX, and again! This time he skied the lofted hit, comes down the track and looks to go big, beaten in the flight there, but got enough wood on it to clear long-on. The fielder watched it sail over his head

48.4 - Moeen Ali to M Marsh, SIX, fabulous shot. Uses his feet and then tonks it straight back over the bowler's head. Got to the pitch and put it away. He can hit them a long long way. Pretty strong young bloke

42.5 - Moeen Ali to S Smith, out Bowled!! Moeen Ali smiles after getting Smith out. 273 runs in the match and he walks off to a standing ovation. Came down the track looking for the big inside out over cover, was done in by the dip and beaten in the flight, he misses and the ball hits the stumps. While walking back gets a congratulatory hand from his skipper. S Smith b Moeen Ali 58(48) [4s-9]

36.2 - Moeen Ali to Warner, out Caught by Cook!! Warner is gone. No hundred for him at Lord's and therefore no place on the Honors Board. He made room and went inside out, hit it hard and over the head of Cook at short cover who leapt and took a fine catch with both hands. The ball was travelling and Cook did well to pluck that in. Warner just leans on his bat in disappointment before trudging off. Warner c Cook b Moeen Ali 83(116) [4s-12]

31.4 - Mark Wood to Warner, no run, very tough chance dropped by Root at short mid-wicket. Mark Wood cramped Warner for room on the pull, Warner spliced it and a leaping Root got a fingertip on it. He was at full stretch and couldn't haul it back in. Would go down as a dropped catch though

22.5 - Mark Wood to Warner, 2 runs, on the stumps, Warner tucks it off his pads behind square and comes back for the couple. The throw came over the keeper's head and that allowed an extra run to be taken. That will be 16th fifty for Warner, he is a happy man, Clarke and co. applaud from the dressing room. He enjoys batting in the second innings

33.1 - Lyon to Broad, FOUR, paddle-sweep from Broad and it's effective. Flighted delivery on the off stump, Broad sends it fine to fine leg, Johnson runs to his left but doesn't get there in time

32.2 - Johnson to J Root, FOUR, Root takes on the bouncer and times it sweetly for four. Short and on the off stump, Root goes on the back foot, swivels and pulls it over the ducking short leg fielder and it runs away through mid-wicket

31.2 - Lyon to Broad, FOUR, driven nicely off the back foot, work to do for the man at cover, but the ball wins the race. Short enough for Broad rock back and drive to the right of the man at cover

31.0 - Johnson to Broad, FOUR, uppish but safe. Short and outside off stump, Broad stays leg-side of the ball and guides it over over third slip, there is no one at third man to stop the ball

30.3 - Johnson to Broad, FOUR, nasty bouncer from Johnson, Broad had no clue about it, took his eyes off and turned his head, it was around his right arm-pit, he fends and luckily for Broad, it goes off the shoulder of the bat and flies over the keeper

29.2 - Lyon to J Root, FOUR, short and spinning down the leg-side, Root goes on the back foot and helps it fine, goes off the inside half of the bat to the fine leg boundary

26.5 - M Marsh to Buttler, FOUR, Marsh opens Buttler completely inside out, this one held its line after pitching on off, the thick outside edge is found as Buttler looked to work to leg, runs away through the vacant gully region. Buttler looked awkward and Marsh has his hands on his head

26.3 - M Marsh to Buttler, FOUR, Buttler gets off the mark first ball with a flick over mid-wicket. It was in the air but firmly played by Buttler, the fielder leapt to take it but it was well over his head

25.5 - Lyon to Stokes, byes, FOUR, hello! Where did that come from? Was there an edge on that one? The umpire gives it as byes though. Sharp spin after it was floated up outside off, Stokes came forward to block and the ball beat everyone, including a diving Clarke at slip. Raced away. Will confirm whether there was an edge on that one or not once I see a replay

13.3 - Starc to Ballance, FOUR, half-volley outside off and Ballance puts it away, the front foot came a bit forward and then he drove it in the big gap at cover. Raced away

11.2 - Hazlewood to Bell, FOUR, full and down leg, confidently clipped away by Bell wide of the square leg umpire. That didn't swing and made it easy for Bell to put it away stylishly. No chance for Mitch Johnson at deep backward square

8.5 - Johnson to Bell, FOUR, so close! Bell didn't have a clue to that inswinger. Was ages late to the indipper and was lucky that the inside edge scooted down to the fine leg fence. Missed leg by a whisker. Bell was stuck on the crease and perhaps didn't expect the ball to cut back in so sharply

8.0 - Hazlewood to Ballance, FOUR, full and swinging back in, Ballance clips it away nicely, there was a man at short mid-wicket and square leg but he split the gap to perfection

6.3 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, this one swings away from the left-hander but Cook meets the ball nicely off the front foot, plays with an angled bat and drives it through point for four

3.4 - Hazlewood to Lyth, FOUR, the ball teases Lyon all the way and beats him to the ropes. It was nicely tucked off the pads wide of short mid-wicket, Lyon was interested all the way but the ball won the race

0.4 - Starc to Cook, FOUR, Cook is off the mark with an uppish flick, clipped off the pads wide of short leg and raced away through square leg. No swing for Starc that time as he drifted onto the pads

33.4 - Lyon to Broad, SIX, banggg! Flighted ball well outside off stump, Broad extends his arms and gets close to the pitch of the ball before lofting it handsomely over long-on

37.0 - Hazlewood to J Anderson, out Bowled!! That's it! Australia have levelled series 1-1, with three games to go. This is some thrashing by Michael Clarke's men, they win by a massive 405 runs! England have been bowled out in just 37 overs and remember, this is a flat pitch. Some dull faces on the England balcony. Fine delivery to seal the game from Hazlewood. Full and swinging in, down the slope as well, Anderson looks to drive, leaves a big bat-pad gap and it crashes into the stumps. J Anderson b Hazlewood 0(5)

34.3 - Hazlewood to J Root, out Bowled!! Australia are simply ruthless! Take a bow, Michael Clarke. Johnson was bowling well but brought Hazlewood back into the attack and he strikes third ball. Short of a length delivery from Hazlewood, the ball comes in with the slope, stays down as well and foxes Root, who was trying to play off the back foot. The ball sneaks through under his bat and hits the off stump. Australia are just 1 wicket away from levelling the series. This delivery was so similar to the Glenn McGrath ball that got rid of Michael Vaughan in the 2005 Ashes series. J Root b Hazlewood 17(44) [4s-2]

34.0 - Lyon to Broad, out Caught by Voges!! Dolly, an absolute dolly! Lyon drops it short and gets it to spin away from the left-hander, Broad once again goes for the back foot drive, but mistimes it completely, the ball balloons to the man at cover, who didn't have to move an inch. England are 8 down! End of an entertaining hand from Broad. Broad c Voges b Lyon 25(17) [4s-4 6s-1]

28.5 - Johnson to Moeen Ali, out Caught by (sub)S Marsh!! What a ball Johnson! Is this pitch flat? Really? Take a look at that nut from Johnson. Excellent bouncer attacking the body of Moeen Ali. The batsman had nowhere to go, he had to play at it, tries to hop and fend, the ball hits him high on the bat and pops up in the air. It was an easy catch for the man at short leg as well. You've got to really bend your back to get that much bounce on this surface and Johnson was simply stunning on that occasion. This game could end much earlier than we initially thought. Moeen Ali c (sub)S Marsh b Johnson 0(4)

28.1 - Johnson to Buttler, out Caught by Nevill!! Oh dear! The disaster continues for England. What a start for Australia after the tea break. Certainly nothing great about this ball, it is just that Buttler has played a poor shot. Short of a length delivery angling away from the right-hander, Buttler could have left it alone as it was well outside off stump, he tries to defend with no feet movement, but ends up feeling for the ball, gets an outside edge and the ball goes at a good height to the keeper. Buttler c Nevill b Johnson 11(9) [4s-2]

26.2 - M Marsh to J Root, out Stokes Run Out!! What was Stokes doing there? Schoolboy error that. It was tucked to the left of mid-on, was an easy single by the looks of it, Stokes was running and crossed the crease but his feet were in the air when the throw hit. Stokes was looking to protect himself from getting hit by the throw and gifts his wicket away. Once the Aussies see the replay on the big screen they all are smiles. Stokes didn't run his bat in, his feet were in the air and since he didn't ground his bat in initially and then take evasive action, he is deemed out under the laws of the game. Stokes run out (Johnson) 0(3)

25.3 - Lyon to Bell, out Caught by (sub)S Marsh!! Spin and an inside edge onto the pad, caught at short leg. Bell walks off. Tossed up and turned in, Bell was pressing forward to block, the turn takes the inside snick onto pad and a dolly to the man under the helmet. Bell has got out like that so many times in the past. England four down and heading towards defeat. After taking the pad it went onto the body and then to short leg. Bell c (sub)S Marsh b Lyon 11(50) [4s-2]

16.1 - M Marsh to Ballance, out Caught by Nevill!! Mitch Marsh does it again. He is the golden arm for Australia. First ball after drinks and that is a good nut. Angled across Ballance, extra bounce taking the fending bat of Ballance, he didn't drop his hands and pushed out, healthy edge and neatly taken by Nevill to his left. That is game over for Ballance in this game - failure for him in both innings. Ballance c Nevill b M Marsh 14(33) [4s-2]

8.4 - Johnson to Cook, out Caught by Nevill!! That is such a big wicket. Johnson strikes and could well have removed the biggest obstacle towards England preventing Australia drawing level. Unnecessary shot that from Cook. So uncharacteristic from the England skipper. He is such a good leaver of the ball outside off, after doing so for the first three balls of the over, he attempts a flashy cut to a short and wide delivery and edges it behind. Big nick and Johnson is seen jumping for joy. Australia remove both the openers in quick time. Cook c Nevill b Johnson 11(31) [4s-2]

4.3 - Starc to Lyth, out Caught by Nevill!! What a ball and edged. Starc has Lyth twice in the match. That is a brilliant delivery, much like the one Southee produced to get him out at Lord's earlier in the summer, rising around off, Lyth was drawn into the defence, didn't handle the extra bounce and took the shoulder of the bat to Nevill. Dharmasena had the finger up in a flash. Lyth knows he has nicked it and walks off. Double failure for him and now the pressure increases as his spot will be under scrutiny for the next match. Lyth c Nevill b Starc 7(16) [4s-1]

20.2 - Johnson to Bell, 1 run, dropped by Voges at first slip. Bell playing away from the body and the outside edge is found, Bell was playing with an open face and that is always dangerous. Nevill went as far as he could to his right to try and catch it, that may have distracted Voges, who went for it one-handed to his left. It didn't stick. Was Voges' catch but Nevill tried to make his mate's job easier. A lucky escape for Bell
