39.1

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, neatly bowled, tidy from Swann, Shakib can only defend

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, this is a bit of a gimme, dug in short and a touch wide, Shakib crashed it through point for four

39.3

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, well, what has happened here. Shakib seemed to push this firmly, but innocuously into the off side, but it's ricocheted off Cook's foot and looped to Prior.

87.1

Swann to Abdur Razzak, OUT, Gone! The ball was pitched full and straight, Razzak's feet went nowhere and his bat swished across the line as the ball thudded into the pad. Swann and the ring of close fielders went up in unison, and he looked plumb even from the first sighting. Swann strikes again with the first ball of a new spell!
