0.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, 4 leg byes, some swing straightaway, appeal for lbw, landed on leg stump and was moving further down, Parthiv tried to clip that fine, missed but it kissed the pads on the way to the fine-leg boundary. Replays show it pitched mostly outside leg and would have clipped leg, only just.

0.3

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, lands on a good length on middle and leg, moves back to turn it into the leg side wide of square leg for a single

2.5
