View dismissal EC Joyce b Rankin 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
1.1 and he's gone! He's shouldered arms and back goes his off stump! A terrific ball, just cutting back in to Joyce who watches his stump flatten. It almost kept a little low, too, and Rankin receives congratulatory slaps from all his team-mates 6/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c †NJ O'Brien b Rankin 6 27 13 1 0 46.15
5.2 terrific bowling - the perfect length from Rankin, bouncing a touch on Vaughan who played the most meek of shots, coming forward and hanging his bat out like a piece of limp lettuce. A thick outside edge hands the wicketkeeper a simple chance to his right 23/2
View dismissal IR Bell c †NJ O'Brien b KJ O'Brien 31 92 74 2 0 41.89
21.2 gone! Bell's turgid knock comes to a tame end, attempting to late-cut a straight one from O'Brien...but he could only deflect it straight into the wicketkeeper's gloves 89/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Porterfield b McCallan 48 91 47 5 0 102.12
26.3 but he's gone now - a huge wicket, and another poor shot. Half a step down the pitch, it was whipped straight to William Porterfield at mid-on - no power in the stroke, and even less placement 113/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood run out (White/Johnston) 90 118 82 8 3 109.75
49.3 from Johnston, pulls it to mid-on and they scamper through for a single. In comes the throw - Collingwood's going to be short here, and Johnston collects with his left hand before shattering the stumps 258/7
View dismissal A Flintoff b Johnston 43 64 62 4 0 69.35
43.3 oh dear. Flintoff attempts to late-cut the spinner, gets a thick inside edge as the ball canons into his off stump 194/5
View dismissal PA Nixon c Morgan b Botha 19 23 15 1 1 126.66
48.2 but it doesn't come off this time, as he attempts the same shot but skies it to mid-on; Eoin Morgan sprints in and almost misjudges it, requiring a dive, but he gets his hands to it to take a fine catch 245/6

View dismissal WTS Porterfield c Bell b Flintoff 31 84 68 1 0 45.58
18.5 a tame end ... Porterfield looked to whip the ball through midwicket, but only got a thick leading edge and the ball ever so gently looped up to short extra cover 72/3
View dismissal JP Bray c Bopara b Anderson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.5 but Anderson corrects his line this time, and Bray's loose drive hands Bopara a catch - a fine catch indeed as Bray slashed Anderson, hard, to him in the gully 6/1
View dismissal EJG Morgan run out (Mahmood) 2 12 7 0 0 28.57
3.4 Mahmood to Porterfield, oh and he's hit him on the body, the ball bobbling to leg - but here comes Mahmood, racing down the pitch in about two-and-a-half strides, picking it up and reverse-flicking the ball onto the stumps. Superb piece of fielding and replays show he's an inch short 11/2
View dismissal NJ O'Brien st †Nixon b Vaughan 63 128 88 4 0 71.59
36.2 lovely bowling, O'Brien deceived by a beautifully flighted delivery and left stranded, Nixon whips off the bails and Vaughan has a grin bigger than the Cheshire Cat. O'Brien played a super little knock, and a disappointing end getting out to what amounts to a part-time bowler 139/6
View dismissal AC Botha c Flintoff b Panesar 18 34 39 1 0 46.15
29.5 slog-swept, but it's top-edged and skied to Flintoff at mid-on who has to jog in about five metres, sliding down on his knees to take it grass-level 116/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien lbw b Panesar 12 19 19 1 0 63.15
35.6 rapped on his pads but it's drifting down....no it's not, he's out! Taufel has raised his finger. 139/5
View dismissal DT Johnston* b Flintoff 27 34 21 1 2 128.57
44.5 full, Johnston aims a wild swing over midwicket, misses, and the ball clatters his leg stump 197/7
View dismissal AR White c †Nixon b Collingwood 38 39 35 4 0 108.57
45.5 White tries to paddle the ball round to leg, Collingwood bowls wide outside off stump and there is no way the batsman can scoop it round from there, it lobs off the face of the bat high into the air and Nixon runs ten yards back to take the simplest of catches 209/8
View dismissal WK McCallan b Flintoff 5 16 6 0 0 83.33
48.1 another well-directed yorker, through a indecisive swish, and the leg stump is sent spinning 218/10
View dismissal D Langford-Smith lbw b Flintoff 1 1 2 0 0 50.00
46.1 super yorker-length delivery, the bat comes down just in time and the ball squirts away fine on the off side ... Flintoff and Nixon appeal and the umpire gives it out. I would like to see that again ... well, the replay looks for all the world that the ball came off the outside edge, but perhaps there was boot first ... all a bit incolnclusive 210/9
