Hilfenhaus to Cook, OUT, GOT HIM! That's a catch and a half from Hussey at gully, as Cook felt for this wide delivery and Hussey flings himself to his right to snaffle a corker!

AN Cook c Hussey b Hilfenhaus 10 (31m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 21/1   AJ Strauss 10* (24b 1x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 4-1-9-1

England 67/2   RS Bopara 22* (39b 4x4)   MG Johnson 6-0-22-1

England 90/3   KP Pietersen 5* (16b)   MG Johnson 7.4-0-33-2

England 241/5   MJ Prior 8* (13b 1x4)   NM Hauritz 14.5-1-42-1

England 327/6   MJ Prior 55* (57b 6x4)   PM Siddle 21.4-2-88-1

Siddle to Prior, OUT, inswing back into the right-hander and he's bowled him! A fantastic delivery by Siddle - huge, late inswing and it forces its way through Prior's gate

MJ Prior b Siddle 56 (99m 62b 6x4 0x6) SR: 90.32
