View dismissal JJ Roy c Coulter-Nile b Cummins 11 19 16 1 0 68.75
3.6 92.7 mph, and another! Two in the over for Cummins. Roy tries to launch a length delivery over the off side, but gets more elevation that distance...still, took a very good catch by Coulter-Nile as he back-tracked from mid-off 18/2
View dismissal AD Hales b Cummins 3 16 7 0 0 42.85
3.3 92.6 mph, well, that's done it! 91mph, Hales done for pace. Another low full toss, Hales is late on the stroke, gets an inside edge onto the pads then into the stumps 17/1

View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Watson b Coulter-Nile 74 50 39 3 7 189.74
16.2 77.8 mph, gets underneath this, goes miles into the Cardiff sky and does not quite have the distance this time as Watson settles under it just inside the rope at long on 153/3
View dismissal JC Buttler c Cummins b Starc 11 5 4 1 1 275.00
17.3 83.7 mph, finds mid-on...clubs a length delivery and doesn't get elevation or placement. A brief, lively stay for Buttler. Next! 168/4
View dismissal SW Billings run out (Smith/Starc) 2 11 7 0 0 28.57
19.4 from Starc, a straight, low full toss is driven straight to mid-off...Smith's throw is on target, Starc takes the bails off. Billings struggled today 180/5

View dismissal DA Warner c Finn b Willey 4 5 6 0 0 66.66
0.6 79.2 mph, gone! Taken at third man! Curious dismissal, but not entirely dissimilar to a couple of the Test dismissals when he was out pulling. Was a shorter delivery, Warner wanted to play into the leg side and got into a bit of a tangle, the ball took the thick leading edge and carried easily to Finn as he took a few paces in 4/1
View dismissal SR Watson b Finn 8 8 5 2 0 160.00
1.5 83.0 mph, dragged on! Oh Watto! Would you believe it. A good length ball from Finn which he defended down by his feet. It them bobbles back towards the stumps, Watson tries to kick it away but misses and can only watch as the ball dislodged a bail 12/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* c Billings b Willey 90 70 53 7 4 169.81
18.3 85.2 mph, he's gone! Ten short of a hundred. Smith got too far underneath this as he aimed to clear deep midwicket. The ball went high, came off the bottom of the bat and his hand came off the handle...Billings takes the vital catch 165/5
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Stokes b Ali 44 44 32 6 1 137.50
13.1 60.0 mph, watch a catch! He's struck first ball. But it's all down to Ben Stokes. It was a short ball, Maxwell fluffed his pull but it was still travelling wide of long on before Stokes ran around, diving to his right and pulled off a blinder 124/3
View dismissal MR Marsh b Topley 13 16 13 1 0 100.00
17.4 first wicket for Topley! A well disguised slower ball. Back of the hand, excellent control, Marsh is far too early on his stroke and bottom edges into his stumps 161/4
MP Stoinis not out 10 15 8 1 0 125.00
View dismissal MS Wade run out (Morgan/Stokes) 2 5 2 0 0 100.00
19.1 from Stokes, mix-up! A length ball is swung to long-off, Wade turned and, head down, wanted the second for Stoinis didn't fancy it and left his team-mate stranded. The throw was decent and Stokes whipped off the bails 172/6
View dismissal NM Coulter-Nile c Rashid b Stokes 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 85.4 mph, falls first ball! Has a mighty swing at a length delivery, goes up the air towards short third man...Rashid calmly takes a few steps backwards and shallows the catch 174/7
View dismissal PJ Cummins run out (Roy/Stokes) 0 1 0 0 0 -
19.5 Stokes to Stoinis, another run out! England brilliant in this last over. Full at leg stump, drilled down to long on. They had to gamble on the second run but the return was quick and flat, Stokes was by the stumps and completes his second run out of the over 175/8
