View dismissal SE Marsh c †Buttler b Finn 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 pitched up, Marsh prods and edges through to the keeper - gone! Poor shot from an opening batsman, the ball didn't really do anything off the pitch but Marsh's feet were stuck in a bog and he dangled his bat outside off stump, there was a big deflection and Buttler took a comfortable catch at chest height 0/1
View dismissal AJ Finch c Root b Tredwell 45 98 45 4 1 100.00
21.5 goes for another big slog down the ground but picks out long-on! Finch has given it away, launching the ball flat and straight down the gullet of Joe Root on the fence, who barely has to move and swallows it without fuss 116/3
View dismissal SR Watson c †Buttler b Bopara 38 51 51 6 1 74.50
12.4 length, outside off, Watson tries to cut off the back foot, he misses - or does he? Bopara is convinced he hit this and England review. We're into Clockwork Orange replay territory, the footage run over and over again from different angles; there's a definite sound as the ball passes, seemingly over the top edge - but the side-on, Hot Spot angle, has the ball going past the toe of the bat, and no heat mark. This is very tricky, as the different camera angles almost look like they're showing different deliveries... but Dar decides the audio is clear, there's nothing else the bat could have hit as the ball went through, and the decision is overturned. Watson has to go this time! 60/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Buttler b Rankin 105 141 102 14 0 102.94
46.2 swing to a length ball just outside off, thin nick and taken by Buttler. Those seven balls that Voges faced forced Clarke into a quite wild swing from a poor base and he's got a thin edge behind bringing to an end a marvellous innings 283/5
View dismissal GJ Bailey c Tredwell b Bopara 82 88 67 5 4 122.38
43.3 length ball on leg stump, Bailey swirls and pulls and picks out Tredwell at short long leg. Unlucky for Bailey really, he helped it on its way down the leg side, tried to keep it down but slapped it directly to Tredwell who held a solid chance with two hands at knee height, a gift for England and ends a fine innings 271/4
AC Voges not out 16 32 16 0 0 100.00
View dismissal MS Wade b Rankin 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
46.3 length ball on off stump, Wade plays a nothing stroke really from the crease trying to run it down towards third man, the delivery was too close for the stroke and he's dragged it on. Beaten for a pace a little and got a thick inside edge into off stump 283/6
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Morgan b Finn 18 12 11 2 1 163.63
49.2 steps to leg and tries to clear the off side but gets it slightly high on the bat and finds extra-cover where Morgan takes a good low catch down by his bootlaces. Finn followed the batsman and slightly cramped him for room 308/7

View dismissal KP Pietersen c Faulkner b Watson 60 95 66 6 2 90.90
22.1 on the attack and he's picked out cover! Watson's golden arm has hit the jackpot, Pietersen departing for a sprightly 60 but England probably needed double that... It was a length ball in the channel, KP drove on the up, didn't come out of the middle - swished slightly across the line, actually - and flew to Faulkner's right, he tumbled and pouched it safely, as Watson roared out his approval 97/4
View dismissal MA Carberry c Clarke b Johnson 4 16 11 1 0 36.36
3.5 back of a length a foot and a half wide of off stump, cut hard but cut straight to backward point for the simplest of chances. Right shot but poor execution, struck it well enough but slapped it at shouldered height straight to Clarke who didn't have to move to take the catch 8/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c †Wade b Johnson 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
3.6 got him! Super delivery, back of a length, it bounced a little on Trott right on line and he nicked it through to Wade a cracking delivery from Johnson. An absolute beauty angled across Trott, it bounced on him, he couldn't get the bat out of the way and got a thick edge for a simple chance to Wade's right 9/2
View dismissal JE Root b Faulkner 3 26 15 0 0 20.00
10.2 good length ball and straight through Root onto middle stump. It shaped back a little and Root was playing with half a bat trying to run it down to third man, poor stroke to a ball which deserved more respect. He came forward and thought it was going to slide across him but a little bit of seam movement has done for him 38/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Clarke b McKay 54 99 69 4 0 78.26
33.4 full outside off, tried to be swung over the leg side but it comes off a swirling outside edge that presents a chance to cover running back and Clarke clings on reaching over his shoulder. A total miscue from Morgan and England's task just got a little stiffer. He was aiming one of those whippy flicks over long-on but was through with the stroke a little soon and didn't escape the mistake 154/6
View dismissal RS Bopara c & b Voges 1 4 7 0 0 14.28
23.4 pushed back by Bopara, taken in his follow through by Voges and he's convinced this is caught and bowled... If so, it's a very soft dismissal. The umpires decide to check it, Bopara was just tapping down the ground, stopped in the shot and it came off the toe, Voges eased Morgan aside to take the catch and that will be out. England are five down! 103/5
View dismissal JC Buttler c Johnson b Fawad Ahmed 75 85 65 5 3 115.38
43.2 goes again but this is straight up, Johnson goes back from mid-on a few yards and takes a comfortable catch. He's thumped a few nicely today Buttler but that was a total miscue that went a long way up off a top edge, trying again to swing away a ball floated up on the stumps. Good solid catch from Johnson 216/9
View dismissal BA Stokes c Bailey b McKay 5 11 7 0 0 71.42
35.6 yet again slow, 65mph, pulled from outside off, nowhere near enough bat on it, comes off a top edge and flies straight down the throat of deep backward square leg. McKay has bowled several excellent slow deliveries and this has bagged him another wicket. A total miscue from Stokes, miles away from the meat of the bat, it went a long way up but was a straightforward chance to Bailey 167/7
View dismissal JC Tredwell run out (Clarke/Faulkner) 1 2 1 0 0 100.00
36.3 Faulkner to Buttler, and another, this straight and flicked into midwicket, they sprint back for two but oh dear Tredwell is pretty slow and has been run out that was very laboured, perhaps he wasn't expecting the second run but what seemed an easy two with deep midwicket having to run around the ball to get a return in to the bowler's end has produced a run out by a comfortable distance, very poor running indeed 169/8
View dismissal ST Finn c Voges b McKay 16 36 23 1 1 69.56
44.2 full on the stumps, Finn tries to clear the leg side again but picks out deep midwicket and that'll do nicely for Australia. Finn didn't nail this like his strikes in the previous over and couldn't clear the deep fielder, Adam Voges, who completed a comfortable catch and handed a third wicket to Clint McKay 227/10
