2.2

Malinga to Trott, no run, outside off, nibbling away, defended out to cover

2.3

Malinga to Trott, no run, full and straight again, defended out to cover with a leather-sniffing forward defensive

2.4

Malinga to Trott, 1 no ball, bouncer, but it's a no-ball, and a front-foot no-ball at that. It's free hit time

2.4

Malinga to Trott, FOUR, top shot from Trott. Malinga flung the delivery out wide, but it was met with the full face of a flat bat, and steered through the covers

2.5

Malinga to Trott, no run, clipped off the hip to square leg

2.6

Malinga to Trott, FOUR, slower delivery, and flicked through midwicket. Top work

England 15/1   IJL Trott 8* (6b 2x4)
3.2

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, outside off, no stroke offered

3.3

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, punched into the covers off the back foot. No real timing in the shot

3.4

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, left alone with a big raise of the bat. Two fours in quick succession is quite enough momentum-seizing for now

3.5

Kulasekara to Trott, FOUR, and off he goes again. On the pads, an easy-as-you-like flick off the hip, reminiscent of his Ashes-seizing century at the MCG. The runs keep coming

3.6

Kulasekara to Trott, 2 runs, tucked into the leg side once again

England 22/1   IJL Trott 14* (11b 3x4)
5.5

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, full and straight, and a fat inside-edge saves Trott from an lbw appeal

5.6

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, blocked out to point, Kieswetter continues to take the slow and steady approach

England 34/1   IJL Trott 14* (13b 3x4)
6.3

Lakmal to Trott, no run, a nudged defence once again

6.4

Lakmal to Trott, no run, on the pads, but this time Trott's timing is off. That one climbed on him a touch

6.5

Lakmal to Trott, no run, nudged to midwicket

6.6

Lakmal to Trott, no run, just a single from a very tight and tidy over. A much better effort

England 35/1   IJL Trott 14* (17b 3x4)
7.3

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, Trott defends carefully his first ball, as he's entitled to

7.4

Kulasekara to Trott, 1 run, smart fielding at point denies Trott runs as he edges down the crease to drive square

7.6

Kulasekara to Trott, FOUR, with a hint of inside edge Trott has managed to squeeze this off his pads very fine, past the short fine leg fielder for four

England 42/1   IJL Trott 19* (20b 4x4)
8.3

Lakmal to Trott, no run, Trott is squared up a fraction as he defends this

8.4

Lakmal to Trott, FOUR, Trott this time finds the boundary, in style too. Jumping outside leg stump to open up the off side and flaying it through extra cover

8.5

Lakmal to Trott, no run, some dandy footwork from Trott, faking a move to outside leg before staying where he is. The bowler is not moved and lands a good yorker

8.6

Lakmal to Trott, OUT, gone this time! Top work from Lakmal, full, straight, and clumping Trott on the toe as he played around his pad

IJL Trott lbw b Lakmal 23 (29m 24b 5x4 0x6) SR: 95.83

England 53/2   IJL Trott 23 (24b 5x4)
