Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, cut to cover

England 441/5   GO Jones 0* (3b)

133.1

Danish Kaneria to Jones, FOUR, good grief, that’s woken everyone up. Jones plants his foot down the pitch and plops Kaneria over long on for four. Where did that come from? Fine shot

133.2

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run

133.3

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, solidly forward to a quicker ball, this could be a good battle between these two

133.4

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, defended on the front foot

133.5

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, Kaneria throws his arms up there, looked like the attempted topper but it came out as a legbreak. Jones nudges it away

133.6

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, cleverly bowled! Quicker, straighter but Jones is up to it

England 447/5   GO Jones 4* (9b 1x4)

135.1

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, top-spinner on off-stump, Jones is up to it

135.2

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, well flighted, on leg-stump, Jones pushes it away

135.3

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, shorter and quicker, forcing Jones on the back foot who plays it excellently, with a very straight bat, opening the face and dulling the spin

135.4

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, what a beauty from Kaneria, it’s the top-spinner again, goes straight on. Jones misread it completely

135.5

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run

135.6

Danish Kaneria to Jones, 1 run, nudged to mid-on

England 454/5   GO Jones 5* (15b 1x4)

136.1

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, crunched into the covers, well timed indeed but straight to the fielder

136.2

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, Jones comes forward and defends with a straight bat

136.3

Mohammad Sami to Jones, SIX, off the back foot and smashed over cover to deep extra cover, the man is waiting out there on the boundary but he just can’t quite hold on and he parries over the “rope” for six

136.4

Mohammad Sami to Jones, 3 runs, another good, impish shot, timed excellently on the leg-side. Sami really not looking the threat he can be

136.6

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, again, an elegant flick through midwicket, timed nicely

England 464/5   GO Jones 14* (20b 1x4 1x6)

138.1

Mohammad Sami to Jones, 1 run, uppish cut off the backfoot down to third man. Toyed with the idea of running two

138.3

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, speared in well, but dug out with ease

138.4

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, swung into the righthander, with a bit of nip, but was easily left

138.5

Mohammad Sami to Jones, no run, another aggressive ball, this time a yorker, but kept out by jamming the bat down on it

138.6

Mohammad Sami to Jones, 1 run, sliced away to third man

England 467/5   GO Jones 16* (25b 1x4 1x6)

139.1

Danish Kaneria to Jones, 2 runs, tickled down to fine leg

139.2

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, on the button, stifled with a firm bat

139.3

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run, another firm defensive

139.4

Danish Kaneria to Jones, no run

139.5

Danish Kaneria to Jones, OUT, tried to sweep, caught on the back leg by one which would have gone on to hit the top of leg-stump. A long appeal and plenty of thought from Steve Bucknor who did his usual “Is he, isn’t he?” guessing game before putting Geraint Jones into his misery. The wrong’un proves the right’un for Kaneria, who has his second wicket.

GO Jones lbw b Danish Kaneria 18 (38m 30b 1x4 1x6) SR: 60.00

England 469/6   GO Jones 18 (30b 1x4 1x6)
