    TRANSCRIPT: COMMENTATORS: "Hopes that Gower would continue where he left off yesterday didn't last for long. And he's gone. Hogg strikes through and breaks this long partnership. Four men out now for 199. And Gower goes after only one run this morning. But for all that it's been a superb 102. Top scorer today for England was Geoff Miller. (INDISTINCT) pitch out away quite nicely by Miller. They might just have taken a little bit of string off it, but not sufficient to prevent it going through for four.



    "Miller made a valuable forty runs batting (INDISTINCT) in difficult conditions. Bowled him - clean bowled. A beautiful ball, that really was a good ball. Australia need to bat with care to match the 309 made by England. That's the over of this game. Good delivery, and he's gone. Wood is out lbw. Hughes had made a big score in the first test.



    ...He's bowled him, clean bowled him. What a beautiful delivery too. And here's Willie bowling to yallop. And a chance, and he's bowled in fact - he's bowled him. With three wickets gone, Darling should have been more cautious. And, there's a run again. No, there's a misunderstanding. He's out, he's out. Tragedy for Australia. Darling is run out, run himself out for 25."
