0.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, starts with a low full toss outside off which is stubbed into the covers off a toe end

0.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, hits a good length this time outside off, Cook shoulders arms as it sails gently through to the keeper. All eyes on whether this pitch will offer anything early on

0.4

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, pushed across outside off, left along again and it comes slowly off the surface

0.5

0.6

2.6
