Over 3 Australia 10/0 Watson 10* Rogers 0*
Watson gets his first boundary with a flick through mid-wicket for four. This is followed up by a clip through square leg - Anderson had pitched it too far down the legside. A good start for Australia.
A word about Chris Rogers - he has 20,000 first class runs which really is a staggering amount.
Over 4 Australia 11/0 Watson 10* Rogers 1*
Broad beats Watson outside the off stump twice in two deliveries. He's bowling a 4th stump line Watson leaves alone. Promising though as Broad gets a bit of movement away from the bat..
Over 5 Australia 12/0 Rogers 2* Watson 10*
Anderson bowling to Chris Rogers, he's just drifting it a bit to the legside of the left handed Rogers who can tuck into the legside. The 4th ball is on driven down the ground but stopped by a diving Stuart Broad and they only manage one. Anderson comes over the wicket to Watson who defends away.
Over 6 Australia 20/0 Rogers 10* Watson 10*
Chris Rogers hits the 17th ball he has faced for 4 with a pull past the square leg umpire. Then chips the next one on the off side but it falls well short of mid-off. 3 slips, a gully, point, mid-off, mid-on, square leg in place.
The fourth ball is a pearler that full and straight but just moves away from Rogers bat - he plays a false shot but it only just misses the edge of his bat. The fifth ball is timed beautifully and placed well just past mid-off and it rushes away for 4. Good over for Australia.
Over 7 Australia 28/0 Watson 18* Rogers 10*

Morning Session summary
Lunch Day 4
A good morning for Australia - they dismissed England within 17 overs in the morning session. Ian Bell fell to a good delivery by Mitchell Starc that just moved a touch and was feathered into the gloves of Haddin. Swann scratched about for 9 runs before edging to Clarke in the slips and Jimmy Anderson lasted just 2 balls. England all out for 375 a lead of 310. In pursuit of the required 311, the Australian openers have started strongly 28/0
There is a hint of swing for the bowlers but it remains a very slow pitch.
Over 43 Australia 124/3 Clarke 3* Smith 0*
Anderson to Rogers and he starts off with a length ball that is pushed into the covers.
Rogers is dismissed really softly by chipping to the man at mid-wicket. Really soft way to go. He'd done a lot of hard work to get his maiden half century.
Steve Smith, the new batman, chips his first ball on the up in to the off-side. Final ball is a yorker, dug out by Smith. Wicket maiden for Anderson
Over 44 Australia 128/3 Clarke 7* Smith 0*
Broad to Clarke and the first ball is outside off stump left alone. Good length though. Clarke drives the second ball fine but Broad manages to stop it with one hand. He squirts the next one into the leg side where it is fielded by Jonathan Trott. The next ball is drifted on to leg stump and flicked very fine by Clarke for four through very fine leg. He fends at the next ball but just manages to get his bat away at the last second.
Over 45 Australia 132/3 Clarke 7* Smith 4*
Smith beautifully times the first ball of Anderson's 13th over square drive for 4. He pushes out the next couple into the off side. There's in swing from Anderson which Smith is just being watchful of, This pitch is painfully slow. 4 from the over.
Over 46 Australia 135/3 Clarke 10* Smith 4*
It's Swann back in to the attack. Clarke is one of the best players of spin in the world - watch how he absolutely smothers the ball. He reaches forward on the 4th ball and just paddles it behind square on the leg side to pick up 3 runs.
Over 47 Australia 138/3 Clarke 13* Smith 4*
Clarke picks up 3 runs by driving a fuller ball from Anderson who follows up with an outside off stump line. Smith isn't sure when he's going to bowl the inswinger so is watching every ball carefully.
Over 48 Australia 138/3 Clarke Smith
It is Swann continuing, Clarke props forward on the 4th ball and it pops up to cries of catch of short leg but it hasn't hit bat or glove and drops short of him. Maiden from Swann
Over 49 Australia 138/3 Clarke 13* Smith 4*
Finn, who has only bowled 3 overs this innings, has been brought into the attack from the Radcliffe Rd End. The ball is getting up a bit but Smith has time to just push them down safely into the offside. He is channeling the line outside off stump but Smith isn't being tempted to play at them. He defends the 5th ball solidly getting in line with his head over his knee. Textbook.
Over 50 Australia 142/3 Clarke 16* Smith 5*
Swann continuing. Clarke works the first ball round the corner for a single followed by a single from Smith to square leg. There's 2 from the 5th ball and Swann looks unimpressed with the fielding. Final ball is full toss that Smith tries to sweep away but he does so straight to the fielder.
Over 51 Australia 142/5 Clarke 16* Smith 5*
Finn again probing the channel outside off stump but Smith strokes the first ball firmly to point. He's happy to either leave or just push the rest into the off side. A maiden from Finn and this spell is much better from him
Over 52 Australia 144/3 Clarke 17* Smith 6*
Swann to Clarke who takes two steps down the wicket but then defends it straight back to Swann. The next ball is squirted into the off side where Cook dives to stop it. Clarke then pushes one through past the umpire at square leg for a single.
Over 53 Australia 148/3 Smith 10* Clarke 17*
A cracker of a ball from Finn 3rd ball - he gets it reversing away from the straight and Smith is in all sorts of bother - it skims past Smith's bat edge. Massive appeal 4th ball as Finn strikes Smith on pad but it's given not out and England decide against reviewing - he got a long way across and outside the line. Smith tucks the next ball into the leg side and they can scamper 2 but he finds the edge and it falls short of Swann in the slips. Smith cuts final ball away for 2
Over 54 Australia 149/3 Smith 10* Clarke 18*
Clarke is showing his class at playing spin. Just calm and solid. The 4th ball flies up in the air and is caught by Bell running across but it's come up off Smith's pad rather than bat. Not given. Smith is not coping as well with Swann as Clarke is.
