Taylor to Vaughan, no run, pushed into the leg side off his hips

2.4

Taylor to Vaughan, no run, a peach, short, just outside off and it lifted leaving Vaughan prodding at thin air

2.5

Taylor to Vaughan, (no ball) FOUR, a streaky way to get off the mark ... he shaped to leave it but was late and the ball hit bat and flew along the ground wide of third slip

2.5

Taylor to Vaughan, no run, short and down the leg side at 81.3mph

2.6

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, half forward and pushed to backward point

3.4

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, left alone, but again it bounces more than expected

5.6

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, wide and Vaughan not interested

Edwards to Vaughan, 1 no ball, outside off and he overstepped as well

7.2

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, that's the spot ....swinging away from Vaughan who plays and misses

7.3

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, a much better bouncer, a yard or so fuller than his other ones and Vaughan has to jerk his head back to avoid decapitation

7.4

Edwards to Vaughan, no run, a slightly tentative push into the covers

7.5

Edwards to Vaughan, (no ball) 2 runs, slightly too full, Vaughan clips it into the on side

9.4

Edwards to Vaughan, FOUR, sweet textbook cover drive, lovely placement

9.5

Edwards to Vaughan, 2 runs, Edwards once more drifts to leg, Vaughan flicks it off his legs to Taylor in the deep

England 64/1   MP Vaughan 18* (25b 3x4)

12.1

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, but it's well wide, swinging wider still of Vaughan who wisely, cautiously leaves it alone. Not that he'd have reached it if he wanted to

12.2

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, a much better line here, on off stump and forcing Vaughan forward who, with soft hands, defends

12.3

Collymore to Vaughan, 1 no ball, a touch shorter this time, Vaughan guides it neatly off the face of the bat to gully - to his right in fact, and he dives expertly

12.3

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, punched off the back foot. No great movement this time for the bowler

12.4

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, wide enough for Vaughan to leave alone, but a good length and it receives hearty, throaty applause from the slips

12.5

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, and he goes for an expansive smite outside off to a wide delivery - down on one knee, and he threw the kitchen and its sink at it. Missed it by miles

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, left alone this time, wisely

England 70/1   MP Vaughan 18* (32b 3x4)

13.6

Taylor to Vaughan, no run, a big appeal as Vaughan comes forward, but he gets a bit of bat on that

England 75/1   MP Vaughan 18* (33b 3x4)

15.1

Bravo to Vaughan, 1 leg bye, a nasty loosener down the leg side

15.4

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, ah, lovely bowling, a little awayswinger from Vaughan who shapes to play before rightly deciding to withdraw his bat, watching the ball zip through to the wicketkeeper

15.5

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, firmly clunked off the back foot to mid-off

15.6

Bravo to Vaughan, 2 runs, guided off the back foot past gully

England 79/1   MP Vaughan 20* (37b 3x4)

17.1

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, short of a length forcing Vaughan onto the back foot who shuffles across and defends, his bat as straight as an arrow

17.2

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, ooh Vaughan gets into a good position to drive this - and he does drive it, but straight to mid-off

17.3

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, punched with a flourish into the covers

17.4

Bravo to Vaughan, 1 run, calmly pushed to mid-off, timing it rather better than he thought, and he scampers through for a single. As does Cook, obviously, as it takes two to tango

17.6

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, excellent ball swinging into Vaughan who drives it back to the bowler

England 83/1   MP Vaughan 21* (42b 3x4)

19.2

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, on off stump, Vaughan cautiously defends

19.3

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, fabulous ball! It drew Vaughan into a drive, swinging away from him at the last moment and causing Bravo, the wicketkeeper and slips to roar their approval in unison

19.4

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, creamed straight to short extra cover. Ganga, the captain, is there...and that'll sting

19.5

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, Bravo finds this to straighten on Vaughan who defends it solidly on the front foot, imploring Cook to stay where he is. "No, no no no," he shouts

19.6

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, another fine delivery, Bravo's really making it move around here - this keeps low on Vaughan who tries to cut, but it nearly scythes his ankles (and stumps) in half

England 87/1   MP Vaughan 24* (49b 3x4)

20.2

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, outside off, Vaughan tries to drive but can't time it

21.1

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, good length, and Vaughan is forward, pushing it out to cover

21.2

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, a really good length from Bravo again, pitching it right up to Vaughan - hoping to take advantage of what little swing there is. Vaughan pushes it back to him

21.3

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, on middle-and-off, bending away from the batsman who nudges it to short extra cover, jogging on the spot after he does so, but declines a run

21.5

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, on middle stump this time, and Vaughan again drives but he can't time it

22.3

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, nicely bowled, a much better length this time and Vaughan inside-edges into his boot

22.4

Collymore to Vaughan, 1 run, but a good ball is followed by a poor one, a leg-side drifter. And to make matters worse, square leg is dosing and they steal a single. The fielding has been severely depressing all morning

England 91/1   MP Vaughan 26* (60b 3x4)

23.1

23.4

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, left alone outside off

23.5

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, punched to cover

England 97/1   MP Vaughan 30* (66b 4x4)

24.2

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, Vaughan carves it and times it magnificently but straight to point. Too short and wide from Sammy

24.3

Sammy to Vaughan, FOUR, dreadful delivery I'm afraid. Maybe a touch of nerves, but it was far too short and wide and he pulled it through midwicket for four

24.4

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, ooh and he's gone again, absolutely smiting this...but straight to square leg

24.5

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, a better line this time, outside off, Vaughan ignores it

24.6

Sammy to Vaughan, 1 run, clunked to mid-on

England 103/1   MP Vaughan 35* (71b 5x4)

25.1

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, ooh a good line here, Vaughan wisely leaving it alone outside off

25.2

Bravo to Vaughan, FOUR, a superb stroke from Vaughan, a bottom-handed whip wide of mid-on. He was well onto the front foot, making it into a half volley and whipping it to leg

25.3

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, firmly defended outside off this time

25.4

Bravo to Vaughan, no run, elegantly driven but extra cover does well, diving to his right to prevent a single

England 108/1   MP Vaughan 40* (76b 6x4)

26.1

26.2

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, better from Sammy, attacking Vaughan's off stump and it's firmly defended

26.4

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, guided on the front to point

26.5

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, wider of the off stump, Vaughan shuffles across and guides it to cover off the back foot

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, and it's pushed out to cover to end the over

England 108/1   MP Vaughan 40* (82b 6x4)

28.1

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, good delivery on the button first up, Vaughan defends over

28.2

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, left alone down the channel

28.3

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, ugly shot, but great ball - just down the channel at thigh height and Vaughan cross-bats over it, just failing to get the under edge

28.4

Sammy to Vaughan, no run, more orthdox defensive this time - ie he hit it

28.5

Sammy to Vaughan, 1 run, on leg, tucked tidily

29.5

Collymore to Vaughan, no run, left alone down the channel
