England won by 115 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

47.6

Johnson to Bopara, no run, and Johnson is back to a poor line, short and down leg side

England 196/1   RS Bopara 0* (1b)

49.1

Johnson to Bopara, FOUR, shouts of 'catch it' but there's no fielder near that, it's clipped uppishly off his pads, over square leg for a stylish boundary to get off the mark

49.2

Johnson to Bopara, no run, better line, just outside off, and defended

49.3

Johnson to Bopara, no run, not a bad short one there, it was at least aimed at the body, but Bopara walks across his stumps and gets out of the way

49.4

Johnson to Bopara, no run, 90mph or 146kph, angled across Bopara, who leaves

49.5

Johnson to Bopara, 2 runs, on the hips and it's comfortably worked away to deep backward square

49.6

Johnson to Bopara, FOUR, too full and Bopara is quickly onto that one and drives sweetly through cover

England 206/1   RS Bopara 10* (7b 2x4)

51.1

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, a hint of shape there, left alone outside off

51.2

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, FOUR, ooh! Driven just wide of the man at short extra cover! Good swing from Hilfenhaus, tempts Bopara to drive and Hughes diving to his right just can't quite get a hand on it

51.3

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, nice shape once again, left alone

51.4

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, no shot offered again, this is a good start from Hilfenhaus, who has swung every ball this over

51.5

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, another one shapes away and it's left alone again

51.6

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, good line and swings away, Bopara defends

England 210/1   RS Bopara 14* (13b 3x4)

53.1

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, left alone outside off

53.2

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, FOUR, ah, great shot! That's a super cover drive, he gets down onto one knee and carves that one off a full length

53.3

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, another slashing drive, this one square, and it's in the air most of the way to point, bouncing just before it reaches Marcus North, who does well to stop it

53.4

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, left alone outside off

53.5

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, no run, some curve again, that's pushed to cover

53.6

Hilfenhaus to Bopara, OUT, he's got him! That's a great ball, straightening instead of swinging, and Bopara is struck below the knee roll dead in front.

RS Bopara lbw b Hilfenhaus 18 (20m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 94.73

England 222/2   RS Bopara 18 (19b 4x4)
