21.1

Fernando to Bell, no run, just short of a good length to start, but he gets Bell playing, albeit defensively

21.2

Fernando to Bell, 2 runs, full and slipping in to the pads, tucked neatly through midwicket

21.3

Fernando to Bell, 1 run, attempted bouncer, decent wheels on the delivery but Bell is in a good position and pulls out to long leg

21.4

Fernando to Cook, no run, pushed down at good pace, but Cook can leave alone on the angle

21.5

Fernando to Cook, no run, pace and carry for Fernando, but again it's wide of off and Cook can find no reason to play a shot

21.6

Fernando to Cook, no run, quickest ball of the over, Fernando aims for the yorker but it's well wide of off again and left alone

England 73/3   CRD Fernando 1-0-3-0
23.1

Fernando to Cook, no run, just short of a good length, but the line is right and Cook defends

23.2

Fernando to Cook, no run, hurled down really wide of off stump. Cook might've struggled to hit that even if he had decided to play a shot

23.3

Fernando to Cook, no run, good pace from the bowler, and this one seemed to come back in to the left-hander off the pitch. Hopping defence from Cook

23.4

Fernando to Cook, 1 run, Fernando sends this one in at 84mph, on the thigh pad, whipped away for a single

27.1

61.2

Fernando to Cook, OUT, and there's the wicket, the inevitable Cook century is not to be, it was a shortish ball, Cook went for an adventurous pull, top-edges it towards mid-on where Maharoof takes the catch, he is a dejected man, at least no one can argue that he was playing for the milestone
