1.1

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, speared across Cook who shoulders arms ... no swing

1.2

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, again too wide to lure Cook, about two feet too wide

1.3

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, even wider, as if that was possible, and Dhoni takes it around his ankles in front of first slip

1.4

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, Cook and and across, thrusting his bat high above his head to let the ball pass

1.5

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, at last ... straight with a sniff of drift into the batsman, Cook forward and blocks solidly

1.6

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, wide and a tad short, Cook back and tries to cut but the ball zips into the pitch off a thick bottom edge and bobbles safely towards Dhoni

England 4/0   S Sreesanth 1-1-0-0
3.1

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, Cook makes a big stride forward and then leaves

3.2

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, about the widest of them all so far ... he's struggling to control the ball and seems to be overcompensating for the breeze across the ground

3.3

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, outside off and Cook leaves

3.4

Sreesanth to Cook, FOUR, overpitched and Cook cracks it through the covers, it has enough power to get across the soggy outfield to the cheers of the crowd ... they've been waiting so long they will cheer anything at the moment

3.5

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, Cook pushes gently to mid-on

3.6

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, no shot, two feet outside off

England 10/1   S Sreesanth 2-1-4-0
5.1

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, much better line to the right hander, a stifled cry as Vaughan meets it with bat and pad

5.2

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, Vaughan leaves but that was still the right line, inches outside the off stump

5.3

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, slightly too much width, no shot

5.4

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, and again, swinging from outside off to even wider outside off

5.5

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, overcompensates, down the leg side and no swing this time, Dhoni skips across to take it around waist height

5.6

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, another leave to end the over

England 11/1   S Sreesanth 3-2-4-0
7.1

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, Cook back and leaves

7.2

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, on off stump, Cook pushes into the covers and no sooner has he done so that he sends Vaughan back with a loud "no"

7.3

Sreesanth to Cook, 2 runs, inswinging yorker, Cook digs it out well and the ball scuttles down to long leg

7.4

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, tempting fate, but Sreesanth seems to have found his line at last ... on off stump, defended into the leg side. He's making the batsmen think about every ball now

7.5

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, full, Cook has to jab down

7.6

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, swinging into the left hander, good over, well done

England 20/1   S Sreesanth 4-2-6-0
13.1

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, no, the wrong line from Sreesanth - too wide and swinging wider still

13.2

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, better line but again a bit too short. Pietersen is back and across, blocking it out

13.3

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, very well bowled - there's the line. On middle-and-off, almost squaring Pietersen up with the outswing he is generating - but it's firmly pushed back to the bowler

13.4

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, ooh a massive shout from Sreesanth as he raps Pietersen on the pads. He wants it - imploring the umpire to raise his finger, but he clearly got an inside edge

13.5

Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, but he loses his line here, drifting it down leg and Pietersen gratefully accepts four to fine-leg with a calm flick off his toes

13.6

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, poor ball - a real waste; short and down the leg side, it's ignored by the batsman and accepted by the keeper

England 46/2   S Sreesanth 5-2-10-0
15.1

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, very close indeed and I'm calling it, it looks absolutely plumb. Swinging into Cook and rapping him on the pads, dead in front. Replays don't appear to indicate he hit it, but it did look a bit high. Either way, here's there to fight another ball

15.2

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, a touch wider of the off stump, Cook leaves well alone

15.3

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, left alone once more. Touch too wide from Sreesanth

15.4

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, good length, but Cook can again leave it alone outside off. No need to serve up a drive

15.5

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, that's better - Sreesanth at last attacking Cook's off stump who goes back to defend

15.6

Sreesanth to Cook, 1 leg bye, a huge, Murali-esque appeal from Sreesanth who rapped Cook on the back foot, but that was clearly, clearly going down the leg side

England 48/3   S Sreesanth 6-3-10-0
17.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, left alone outside off. Swinging wider still

17.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, 1 run, tough too straight here and Collingwood nudges it off his pads, allowing them to scamper through for a decidedly cheeky single

17.3

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, Cook comes forward to block this out, and does so solidly

17.4

Sreesanth to Cook, FOUR, ooh, very close to losing his leg stump Cook - Sreesanth angling this into his pads and he takes it off his legs at the very last moment, flicking it down to fine-leg

17.5

Sreesanth to Cook, 4 byes, terrible ball down the leg side and Dhoni makes rather a hash of it behind the stumps, and he can't prevent it racing down to fine leg

17.6

Sreesanth to Cook, no run, better line outside off and it's left alone

England 59/3   S Sreesanth 7-3-15-0
19.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, wide, and swinging wider. It's far out and Collingwood isn't interested

19.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, ah, lovely shot from Collingwood for a zero. Firmly punched to mid-on

19.3

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, again down the leg side

19.4

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, and again, miles down the leg side

19.5

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, and it's on target this time, just outside the off stump and it's left alone

19.6

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, good end to a poor over, pitching this up to the right hander who digs it out

England 70/3   S Sreesanth 8-4-15-0
32.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, smacked off the back foot, but smacked to nowhere

32.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, OUT, well bowled! Swinging into Collingwood who came tentatively forward, without conviction, and inside-edged it onto his stumps

PD Collingwood b Sreesanth 28 (73m 44b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

32.3

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, defends this to leg

32.4

Sreesanth to Bell, 4 leg byes, poor delivery, down the leg side and he clips it for four to fine-leg. Oh, the umpire signals leg-byes

32.5

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, too wide of the off stump to trouble Bell who leaves this well alone

32.6

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, and he leaves it alone to end the over

England 105/4   S Sreesanth 9-5-15-1
34.1

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, wide, swinging wider and it's left alone

34.2

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, a little too short and a little too wide

34.3

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, a beauty! That is a cracker from Sreesanth. Outside off stump, it cut away from him and bounced prodigiously on Bell who tried to defend it off the back foot but missed. Missed it comfortably, truth be told

34.4

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, but therein lies Sreesanth's problem, drifting this delivery down the leg side

34.5

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, another cracker, cutting this away from Bell who plays and misses

34.6

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, left alone outside off

England 109/4   S Sreesanth 10-6-15-1
36.1

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, outside off, Bell leaves and heads disdainfully towards square leg

36.2

Sreesanth to Bell, no run, again no need to play that

36.3

Sreesanth to Bell, 1 run, whipped from middle-and-leg behind square for the single

36.4

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, Prior right into line and a watchful defensive stroke

36.5

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, Prior takes a big step forward and leaves, a hint of seam into him but no danger as it started too wide

36.6

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, fullish, driven firmly inches to the right of the stumps and mid-on across quickly to field

England 110/5   S Sreesanth 11-6-16-1
38.1

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, speared down the leg side, Dhoni across smartly to take on the run

38.2

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, just as wayward, only this time off-side waywardness, Somewhere in between needed ...

38.3

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, Prior shapes to drive, the swing means he gets a thick inside edge into pad and the ball trickles into the covers

38.4

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, Prior looks like someone who wants to get on with things but perhaps caution needed in these conditions

38.5

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, pushed off the back foot into the off side

38.6

Sreesanth to Prior, no run, too short to tempt the hook

England 112/5   S Sreesanth 12-7-16-1
