Eng 312 | Overs 101.4 | Anderson 13* | OUT! Swann 6 (14), Prior 69 (102), Panesar 0 (7)

 

Panesar hits one from Harris straight to Chris Rogers at short extra-cover and that is it. Australia have won the second Test by 218 runs. They take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Mitchell Johnson is the Man of the Match.

 

Prior plays a fantastic on-drive to a straight delivery from Siddle and gets another four.Ryan Harris comes into the attack. He bowls a back of a length delivery and Swann edges it to Michael Clarke at second slip. Australia need only two more wickets to win the match. Prior then guides a delivery outside off-stump off Harris for a four past third-man. Siddle bowls another short delivery and Prior pulls it straight to Harris at deep backward square-leg. Harris takes a very good catch diving ahead. Australia need only one wicket to win.

 

 


 

Eng 286/7 | Overs 96 | Prior 57*, Swann 5* | OUT! Broad 29 (32)

 

Peter Siddle will open proceedings for Australia. Stuart Broad and Matt Prior take one single each. Siddle digs one in short and Broad pulls it for a six. There were two men in the deep, but he hit it well over them. Siddle bangs the next one shorter and Broad pulls again. This time it goes straight to Nathan Lyon at deep square-leg. His enterprising innings has come to an end. Johnson comes in from the other end and Prior drives one off the back-foot for a four. Johnson bowls a short one and Prior pulls and gets a four through mid-wicket. In Johnson’s next over, he bowls another short one and Prior pulls again and gets another four.

 

Siddle then bowls one short to Prior and he pulls delightfully and gets a four. That is his half-century as well. Well played to the England wicketkeeper-batsman. Johnson slides one on the off side and Prior slashes hard and evades the third-man fielder and gets a four.
