54.4

North to Pietersen, no run, nice drift and drop from North, Pietersen defends

54.5

North to Pietersen, no run, on off stump, decent bowling there, blocks it away

54.6

North to Pietersen, 1 run, and there's the Red Bull run, driven to mid-on and in fact that was a relatively comfortable way for Pietersen to get off the mark

England 224/2   KP Pietersen 1* (5b)

55.1

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, a bit too wide outside off, it's left alone

55.2

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, groans from the Australians as Pietersen lunges at a drive outside off, it's swung away though and beats the outside edge

55.3

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, more swing, this one a touch wider so it's left alone

55.4

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, fullish ball, beats the bat

55.5

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, tries for a yorker but it's a low full toss, driven back to Hilfenhaus

55.6

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, good ball, shaping away and bouncing sharply, Pietersen looks to play and then gets the bat out of the way just in time

England 224/2   KP Pietersen 1* (11b)

56.2

North to Pietersen, 1 run, shortish outside off, punched to cover for a quick single

England 226/2   KP Pietersen 2* (12b)

57.1

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, driven to mid-off

57.2

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, good shape away again, Pietersen defends

57.3

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, 1 run, oops, KP didn't know where that one went, he tried to drive straight and got a thickish inside edge away to square leg

England 232/2   KP Pietersen 3* (16b)

58.1

North to Pietersen, 4 runs, ooh, that was a close one! Pietersen drives to mid-on, where Ponting's quick grab and release could have had Strauss in a bit of trouble at the non-striker's end. But he missed and there's overthrows galore

58.2

North to Pietersen, 1 run, driven down the ground for a single

58.6

North to Pietersen, 3 runs, edge! But it's wide of the sole slip, it was a quicker ball and Pietersen didn't get to it in time, Hilfenhaus chases it down to third man and makes a good sliding save

England 241/2   KP Pietersen 11* (19b)

59.1

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen leaves this one close to his off stump but it's not quite deja vu from Cardiff, this one sails over the stumps

59.2

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, FOUR, that's a good punchy off-drive, Pietersen gets to the pitch of it and helped it on its way nicely

59.3

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, drives in the same direction this time but can't beat Katich at mid-off

59.4

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, straighter ball and it's worked to leg

59.5

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, inside edge onto the pad

59.6

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, 1 run, a quick single again, driven to mid-on and Strauss wasn't backing up at all, so he had to hustle to get through

England 246/2   KP Pietersen 16* (25b 1x4)

60.1

North to Pietersen, FOUR, and Pietersen uses his feet well here, advances to the offspinner and lofts a drive over mid-on, not timed perfectly but it was safe all the same

60.2

North to Pietersen, no run, straight-bat defence this time

60.3

North to Pietersen, no run, drifts onto the pads, it's defended to leg

60.4

North to Pietersen, 1 run, worked away to square leg

England 251/2   KP Pietersen 21* (29b 2x4)

61.1

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, oh, KP almost a brain-freeze there! He's chopped it into the ground and as it bounces up he puts his hand out as if to grab it, then rethinks and leaves it, then thinks about handling it again, then remembers himself again and it doesn't roll back onto his stumps.

61.2

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, oh, another close one! He's tried to hook this one and it's flown off the top edge, lobs up behind square, Haddin can't quite get there in time

61.3

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, 1 run, clipped away to square leg and Pietersen will be happy to get off strike there

61.6

Hilfenhaus to Pietersen, no run, defended to cover

England 255/2   KP Pietersen 22* (33b 2x4)

62.5

North to Pietersen, 1 run, nurdled off his toes

England 257/2   KP Pietersen 23* (34b 2x4)

63.1

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, very full and a little stiff, driven to mid-on

63.2

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, driven to mid-on

63.3

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, left alone outside off

63.4

Siddle to Pietersen, FOUR, oh take that. Pietersen at his best - a front-foot cover-driven slap for four. Bosh

63.5

Siddle to Pietersen, no run, slightly tighter line and a better length

63.6

Siddle to Pietersen, FOUR, driven hard back to Siddle, through his hands, through his legs for four. That was a real toe-crusher - from Pietersen, not Siddle - and can barely be described a chance, but nevertheless I'm still going to have to say it: dropped

England 265/2   KP Pietersen 31* (40b 4x4)

64.4

North to Pietersen, 1 run, tickled to leg

England 267/2   KP Pietersen 32* (41b 4x4)

65.1

Siddle to Pietersen, OUT, got him! Terrific ball that moved away just a touch from Pietersen, drawn forward into a drive, and it took a thin outside edge to a diving Haddin behind the stumps

KP Pietersen c †Haddin b Siddle 32 (38m 42b 4x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

England 267/3   KP Pietersen 32 (42b 4x4)
