View dismissal IR Bell run out (Carter) 23 33 25 2 0 92.00
7.4 from Udal, no mistake this time, as Carter picks up at midwicket and pings down the stumps at the non-striker's end! Bell is caught six inches short, and that's a vital breakthrough 43/1
View dismissal MJ Prior b Kartik 29 43 32 1 0 90.62
10.3 bowled him, and that was coming! Prior was getting frustrated as the boundaries dried up, tried to make room to smack the ball through the off side, and was beaten by the one that went straight on. Canny operating from Kartik, and here comes England's skipper 63/2
OA Shah not out 39 50 37 2 1 105.40
View dismissal KP Pietersen* st †Scott b Kartik 5 5 10 0 0 50.00
12.3 the captain goes! Dragged down the pitch, a massive yahoo, and swift work from the keeper. No question about that one, and another scalp for the spinners 73/3
View dismissal A Flintoff c Morgan b Carter 16 23 17 0 1 94.11
18.1 finally, a catch is held, and it's a cracker! Eoin Morgan was pushed right back onto the long-off fence as Flintoff launched another strike down the ground. He took the chance coolly at head-height, wobbled backwards half an inch, but kept his balance. Flintoff has no doubts, although the umpires are conferring ... and the verdict is OUT 111/4

View dismissal AJ Strauss b Sidebottom 8 15 12 1 0 66.66
3.3 well, that's emphatic! A great big booming yahoo of a pull shot, but Strauss makes no contact whatsoever and loses his leg stump into the bargain. The end of a sketchy day's work from the former England one-day cricketer, who hasn't exactly enhanced his claims for a recall tonight ... 16/1
View dismissal NM Carter c Patel b Flintoff 11 36 27 1 0 40.74
7.6 at last, a catch is taken! Another short ball from Flintoff, and a loose swipe from Carter spirals into the night sky and lands in Samit Patel's safe hands at fine leg. Coolly done, and at last the pinch-hitter has been put out of his misery 36/2
View dismissal EC Joyce c Bell b Anderson 33 60 39 2 1 84.61
18.6 went for the glory shot over mid-off, but couldn't quite get enough bat on it. Bell steadied himself inside the rope, and claimed one of the few comfortable chances of this match. That could be curtains for Middlesex 104/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Anderson b Broad 4 7 7 0 0 57.14
10.1 well, it was a tougher chance that the one that Strauss dropped, but it was held safely enough in the end. A loose hoick from Morgan lobbed up to Anderson at mid-off, who jogged around to claim a simple chance 42/3
