Ball-by-Ball Commentary


Match State: Day 1 start scheduled for 11.00 AEDT (00.00 GMT)

       Welcome to the first day's play of this fifth and final Ashes Test
        from the Sydney Cricket Ground
       Australia hold a 4-0 lead in this series, and are looking to become
        only the second side to complete five wins in a five Test Ashes
        series
       Steve Waugh will be playing his 156th Test, equalling Allan
        Border's record for most matches, and much of the build up has
        focussed on whether or not this will be his last Test
       The home side have made one forced change, Andy Bichel gets another
        chance coming in for the injured McGrath
       And two changes for England, Alec Stewart resumes his wicket-
        keeping role after Foster kept in Melbourme, and injured all-
        rounder Craig White has been replaced by a specialist fast bowler
        in Matthew Hoggard
       The umpires and players are now out on the field, the biggest
        applause coming unsurprisingly for the Australian fielders

       And that completes the day's play, England finishing with the upper
        hand
       The highlight of the day being Butcher's marvellous century, and
        the fine supporting innings played by his captain Nasser Hussain
       Gillespie and Lee were the best of the bowlers, Lee looking
        especially deadly with each of the new balls - taking one wicket
        with each - but perhaps slackened off a little at other times
       Whilst Gillespie was his usual consistent self, keeping it tight
        and applying pressure to the batsmen on what was not the most
        frendliest of wickets for the bowlers
       Play resumes at 11.00am local time tomorrow

Match State: Stumps - Day 1

       Welcome to the second day's play of this fifth and final Ashes Test
        from the Sydney Cricket Ground
       England will resume their innings this morning in a healthy
        position
       The first session will be a crucial one in terms of how the match
        takes shape
       More resolute batting from England could see them in a position
        from which they are unlikley to lose
       But anything less could see them end up with another sizeable first
        innings deficit
       Applause follows the players' entrance out onto the ground
       Gillespie to continue his spell from last night, three slips, two
        gullies, point, mid off, mid on and long leg in place

       Steve Waugh gets a standing ovation leaving the playing field
       Well what a day, an absolute fairy tale innings from Steve Waugh in
        what was mooted to be his last Test
       Adam Gilchrist also trying his best to steal the show late in the
        day
       Australa looked to be in a fair amount of trouble at three for 56,
        and again at 5 for 150, but now with a deficit of 125 with five
        wickets still in hand, one would think this match is now evenly
        poised

Match State: Stumps - Day 2

       Welcome to the third day's play of what's proving to be an
        enthralling test match
       Steve Waugh's century - career saving one perhaps - from the last
        ball of yesterday's play has certainly been a big highlight
       His partner Adam Gilchrist also playing some cracking shots late
        yesterday
       One senses that the balance of this match will be dependant upon
        the current partnership
       An early wicket should see England on their way to a decent first
        innings lead
       But if this partnership continues on at the pace its going,
        Australia could really start to assert some authority over their
        opponent
       The players make their way out onto the field, a predictable big
        ovation for the Australian captain
       The Australian players wearing black armbands, as a mark of respect
        for the recently deceased former team manager John Edwards
  51.1 Caddick to Gilchrist, no run, back, defending
  51.2 Caddick to Gilchrist, no run, played to the off side

       England taking the ascendancy early with the removal of crowd hero
        Steve Waugh, and the further dismissals of Bichel and Lee in
        successive deleveries, Hoggard taking all three wickets to fall
       However that good start has been frittered away with some rather
        unimagination captaincy from Hussain, persisting with this tactic
        of applying zero pressure to Gilchrist, allowing him easy runs
       Whilst Gillespie has been quite composed in handling the defensive
        stuff, their partnership now worth 69 runs

        in that
  78.3 Harmison to Gilchrist, OUT: goes for a big drive off the back foot,
        fails to get onto it as the ball sails through to keeper Stewart,

       And that ends the session

        themselves chasing less than 400
       However the pitch did more in that session than its done throughout
        the match, which may worry the Australians for when they bat last
        on this deck

       And that is stumps
       England holding the aces at the moment, but with this attacking
        style Australia play, who knows how it will pan out?
       An exciting fifth day awaits us

Match State: Stumps - Day 4

       Welcome to the fifth and finals days play from the fifth and final
        Test of the series
       We enter the last day with any result possible
       England firmly in control at the moment, requiring only a further
        seven wickets for victory
       Which would seem a much easier task than getting the further 363
        runs Australia require for victory
       Keeping the seven wickets in tact to force a draw may be the more
        realistic way for Australia to deny England victory
       The pitch still looks pretty good for batting, but it did start to
        liven up yesterday, it remains to be seen how it will play today
       A nice sunny day here at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which should
        allow for a full day's play, if necessary
