1.1

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, wide of off stump, no shot

1.2

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, lovely ball, coming in to Jaffer, a bit of bounce and it zips past the outside edge

1.3

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, more gentle away swing, left alone

1.4

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, again far too wide to tempt

1.5

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, well judged, left by Jaffer but that was a much better line

1.6

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, another leave but too wide once more

India 0/0   W Jaffer 0* (6b)
3.1

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, too wide again from Anderson

3.2

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, it hardly needs saying ... but too wide to remotely interest the batsman

3.3

Anderson to Jaffer, FOUR, after several sighters Jaffer finally has a go at one and hammers the ball behind square on the off for four. That ball got exactly what it deserved

3.4

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, wide but fuller, Jaffer leaves

3.5

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, outside off, no shot

3.6

Anderson to Jaffer, FOUR, well, better line but too full and Jaffer plays an effortless straight drive down the ground ... he barely leaves his crease as that races away across the unusually lush outfield

India 8/0   W Jaffer 8* (12b 2x4)
5.1

Anderson to Jaffer, 1 wide, and that was the widest of the lot, and even too much for Ian Howell who calls it

5.1

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, he's really off the boil ... started wide and got wider

5.2

Anderson to Jaffer, FOUR, too full and Jaffer gets a thick outside edge - probably intentional - and the ball scoots away behind square on the off side

5.3

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, firm drive and Tremlett at extra cover athletically dives to his left and flicks the ball towards the keeper's end

5.4

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, the first short one, Jaffer sways back and lets the ball pass at head height

5.5

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, much better, a good length and line, Jaffer plays inside the line. No foot movement

5.6

Anderson to Jaffer, SIX, short but much too wide, Jaffer leans back,slashes the ball over gully and it carries all the way. Quite safe as there is no third man and the width allowed him the freedom to throw the bat at it

India 21/0   W Jaffer 18* (18b 3x4 1x6)
6.2

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, good line, swinging in, Jaffer meets it with the face of the bat

6.3

Sidebottom to Jaffer, FOUR, Jaffer back and punches the ball through midwicket, Vaughan chases but opts not to dive for the sake of saving a run

6.4

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, wide but no swing, Jaffer played for it to come back and ended up groping as it left him

6.5

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, fuller, Jaffer back but is beaten offering a rather nothing poke

6.6

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, defensive push to mid-off

India 28/0   W Jaffer 22* (23b 4x4 1x6)
8.1

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, booming inswinger which started wide enough for Jaffer to leave anyway

8.2

Sidebottom to Jaffer, FOUR, sublime and effortless flick through square leg, lovely shot

8.3

Sidebottom to Jaffer, 2 runs, less attractive, he reaches for the ball and steers the ball off the bottom of the bat behind square on the off. Poor running .... Jaffer was not pushing for a third which was clearly there

8.4

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, outside off, Jaffer back and then leaves

8.5

Sidebottom to Jaffer, 1 run, pushed into the covers off the back foot and good placement enables a comfortable single

India 36/0   W Jaffer 29* (28b 5x4 1x6)
9.1

Tremlett to Jaffer, no run, Jaffer stands tall to get over the ball and drops it into the off side

9.2

Tremlett to Jaffer, no run, pushed into the covers off the front foot, no chance of a run as point quickly in

9.3

Tremlett to Jaffer, no run, Jaffer surprised by the bounce, he takes his bottom hand off the handle and just about keeps the ball under control and it loops a few yards into the off side

9.4

Tremlett to Jaffer, no run, able to leave as it was a couple of feet outside off

9.5

Tremlett to Jaffer, 1 run, turned safely past Cook who is at backward short leg

India 37/0   W Jaffer 30* (33b 5x4 1x6)
10.1

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, angled across Jaffer but much too wide and Prior has to scurry to his right to gather

10.2

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, no shot from Jaffer who gets half forward with his pad just in case the swing is exceptional ... which it is not

10.3

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, three out of three left alone

10.4

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, back and across but no shot needed

10.5

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, short, Jaffer jerks his head back a few inches even though it was not close to him, Prior takes above his head and the slips applaud with the enthusiasm of seals expecting a fish

10.6

Sidebottom to Jaffer, no run, left alone. Six balls, six that did not need playing. That's a lot of effort from Sidebottom on a hot day for absolutely no reward

India 37/0   W Jaffer 30* (39b 5x4 1x6)
12.1

Anderson to Jaffer, 1 run, turned round the corner to deep backward square leg

12.4

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, full, firmly driven back at Anderson's feet

12.5

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, wide, and the ball seemed to struggle to get through to Prior, like an old man chasing a bus

12.6

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, no stroke needed

India 48/0   W Jaffer 31* (43b 5x4 1x6)
14.1

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, a good length, nipped back in off the seam veering towards leg stump

14.2

Anderson to Jaffer, FOUR, shorter this time, on off, and creamily dispatched in front of midwicket with a back-foot pull

14.3

Anderson to Jaffer, no run, better direction for Anderson, outside off and slanting in casually to the right-hander - with a touch of lift, too - and he fends down off the back-foot

14.4

Anderson to Jaffer, OUT, width outside off, short-of-a-length and that was a deliberate strategy to entice Jaffer to upper cut off the back-foot straight to Pietersen at third man

W Jaffer c Pietersen b Anderson 35 (69m 47b 6x4 1x6) SR: 74.46

India 62/1   W Jaffer 35 (47b 6x4 1x6)
