Hilfenhaus to Cook, no run, on the back foot and he plays it nicely, defending it with a solid clunk of the bat

2.4

Hilfenhaus to Cook, no run, on his legs this time and flicked to a shortish square leg

2.5

Hilfenhaus to Cook, FOUR, that's four. Half-volley just outside off and beautifully driven. A calm, checked-drive for four

Hilfenhaus to Cook, no run, pushed out to point

England 5/0   AN Cook 4* (6b 1x4)

5.1

Siddle to Cook, FOUR, oh that's a shot. Short delivery and it didn't climb enough, allowing Cook to swat it through midwicket firmly for four. Well timed. Too short from Siddle on a placid pitch

5.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, on middle and defended this time

5.3

Siddle to Cook, OUT, well bowled and CAUGHT! Angled across Cook who pushed at it meekly, edging it low to Ponting's right at second slip

England 12/1   AN Cook 10 (12b 2x4)
