49.1

Siddle to Trott, no run, bouncer tests out Trott, he ducks under it with ease

49.2

Siddle to Trott, no run, bangs it in again and Trott fends! Oh, this one goes safely wide of Katich but Trott was keen to take off for a run, Katich threw it back at the stumps and Trott may actually have been in trouble had that hit

England 176/3   IJL Trott 0* (7b)

53.2

53.3

Siddle to Trott, no run, solid looking defensive. An attacking defensive push to mid-off. I've been impressed with Trott's feet movement so far in his innings. Keen to get onto the front foot

53.4

Siddle to Trott, 1 run, walks across his stumps - dangerous stroke from Trott, and Ponting's roaring an appeal but Trott got an inside edge onto his pad. He does get a long way across, though - so far, sometimes, that his leg stump is visible

Clark to Trott, no run, prods this to mid-on

54.4

54.5

Clark to Trott, no run, slower delivery. My sort of pace - 71mph on middle stump, and it's defensively nudged to leg

Clark to Trott, no run, solid defensive on the back foot. Nice straight bat from Trott

England 181/4   IJL Trott 4* (25b)

56.1

Clark to Trott, no run, thrashed to cover. Timed that well

56.2

Clark to Trott, no run, late swing away from the right-hander. Wisely ignored

56.3

Clark to Trott, no run, onto the front foot and pats this to mid-off. Held up, just a touch

56.4

58.1

58.2

Clark to Trott, FOUR, gorgeous shot for four. An orthodox and elegant first four in Test cricket for Trotters

58.3

Clark to Trott, 2 runs, edged - short of mid-off! Squared up and again he tried to work it across his pads, but got a thick leading edge short of the fielder. Terrific ball

58.5

Clark to Trott, no run, nicely driven, if lacking timing and power

59.5

Siddle to Trott, 4 byes, awesome off-cutter which beats everyone! That cut back monstrously on Trott who didn't have a hope in hell of making contact. Nor did Haddin, for that matter. And fine-leg. No-one, really.

64.2

North to Trott, no run, defended on the front foot

64.3

North to Trott, no run, that's sped onto him and my word, that's close - thick inside edge at the last moment saved him! Lapse in concentration from Trott - sheesh, that was mighty close!

North to Trott, no run, solid defensive this time

73.1

Watson to Trott, no run, on line straight away, Trott pushes to mid-on

73.2

Watson to Trott, FOUR, easy runs there for Trott, he gets on on his pads and flicks it forward of square leg for a boundary. Well, when I say easy runs, you've still got to put the bad balls away

73.3

Watson to Trott, no run, defended away safely this time

73.4

Watson to Trott, 1 run, short ball, but at Watson's pace it's no threat and Trott pulls to deep midwicket
