Sammy to Collingwood, no run, ooh a nice bit of drift away from Collingwood here who pokes and misses. A needless poke, really; he should've left that alone

44.3

Sammy to Collingwood, no run, a very ugly smite across the line which yields him nothing

England 138/4   PD Collingwood 5* (21b 1x4)

46.1

Sammy to Collingwood, no run, a nothing sort of delivery, short, and down the leg side

46.2

Sammy to Collingwood, no run, that's much better - fuller, drawing him into a defensive and it's blocked out

46.3

48.1

Taylor to Collingwood, 1 no ball, and he starts with a no-ball. It's endemic

48.1

Taylor to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood switches off his miner's torch and punches this to cover, riding the bounce and playing it off the tips of his toes

Taylor to Collingwood, 1 bye, a filthy delivery down the leg side, barely hitting the cut strip

48.4

Taylor to Collingwood, 1 run, a casual pull around the corner

England 160/4   PD Collingwood 10* (31b 2x4)

49.1

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, an 87mph bouncer which actually appeared to be a lot faster, such was the mess Collingwood nearly got himself into, evading it at the last moment

49.2

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, vicious - very, very nasty indeed making Collingwood jump all over the place. Rising up onto his chest, Collingwood fended it down to the off side expertly, but that was a seriously sharp delivery

49.3

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, slapped on the front foot to cover

49.4

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, too short this time and he ducks underneath with ease

49.5

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, ooh, Collingwood's jumping around like a cat on a hot tin roof, fending this just short of Ganga at short-leg

49.6

Edwards to Collingwood, no run, another fearsome delivery. Short and dead straight, Collingwood took his eye off it and fended it off with a couple of knuckles. Nasty and exciting; this is what we want

England 160/4   PD Collingwood 10* (37b 2x4)

52.2

Taylor to Collingwood, no run, a touch straighter, drifting away from the right hander who leaves alone

52.3

Taylor to Collingwood, OUT, an inswinger, Collingwood shuffles across his stumps but is rapped straight in front. A raucous appeal...and he's given him. The ball did look to be shaping down the leg side, but replays indicate leg stump would've been flattened

England 166/5   PD Collingwood 10 (43b 2x4)
