36.4

Bresnan to Faulkner, no run, full length on off stump, blocked forward up on the off side

36.5

Bresnan to Faulkner, no run, blocked around the off stump towards the on side getting a bit squared up

36.6

Bresnan to Faulkner, 1 run, full length, tails in again and is worked through square leg

Australia 140/6   JP Faulkner 1* (3b)

37.1

Tredwell to Faulkner, 5 runs, floated up on off stump, tucked to midwicket, lazy from 12th man Bairstow, who then throws at the stumps and no-one is backing up and that's four buzzards too

37.3

Tredwell to Faulkner, 1 leg bye, goes to paddle sweep from off stump, struck on the pad outside the line

37.5

Tredwell to Faulkner, no run, slider and it beats Bailey on the outside edge playing forward

37.6

Tredwell to Faulkner, no run, full just outside off, clipped back to the bowler

Australia 148/6   JP Faulkner 6* (7b)

38.2

Bopara to Faulkner, no run, full ball on the stumps, tucked to midwicket

38.3

Bopara to Faulkner, no run, full ball on the stumps, tucked straight to midwicket again

38.4

Bopara to Faulkner, no run, length ball, back and across the off stump played back to the bowler

38.5

Bopara to Faulkner, 1 run, full length again, this a little wider allowing Faulkner to drive out to deep cover

Australia 150/6   JP Faulkner 7* (11b)

39.2

Tredwell to Faulkner, no run, flicked off the middle stump to square leg

39.3

Tredwell to Faulkner, 1 run, flicked to midwicket and they take a quick run, there's a dive back in as the throw comes in from Morgan at midwicket, Buttler takes it very well and turns with his gloves backwards to the stumps having dived past the timbers and I think Johnson is short of his ground, the bat is over the line but in the air and I reckon the bail is out of its groove. Apparently not! Not out given, well the third umpire, Billy Bowden, wanted to be 100% sure and he obviously wasn't

39.5

Tredwell to Faulkner, 1 run, full length on the stumps, pushed down the ground to long-on

Australia 154/7   JP Faulkner 9* (14b)

40.1

Bopara to Faulkner, 1 run, full length wide of the off stump, cracked to mid-off

40.3

Bopara to Faulkner, 1 run, slower ball on the stumps, Faulkner backs away and waits for it before chopping behind square on the leg side

40.6

Bopara to Faulkner, 1 run, full, slightly inswinging yorker, dug out down the ground to long-on

Australia 163/7   JP Faulkner 12* (17b)

41.1

Tredwell to Faulkner, SIX, tossed up from around the wicket onto middle and leg and hammered over midwicket with a fine slog sweep, excellent stroke

41.2

Tredwell to Faulkner, 2 runs, goes down the ground now and strikes it well again, gets it pretty flat, long-on slides around and saves well

41.3

Tredwell to Faulkner, no run, gives himself room but can only get a length ball back up the wicket

41.4

Tredwell to Faulkner, 1 run, dragged down a little and pulled out to deep midwicket

Australia 172/7   JP Faulkner 21* (21b 1x6)

42.3

Bopara to Faulkner, 1 run, slower ball on the stumps again, half-pulled through midwicket for a single into the deep

42.5

Bopara to Faulkner, no run, full ball on the stumps, pushed back to the bower who takes the catch, surely a bump ball and they're going to check again! How many reviews have we seen today? I though Bopara was appealing as a joke but Erasmus has decided to go upstairs. He's smashed it into the floor!

42.6

Bopara to Faulkner, FOUR, another slower ball, waited for and cut hard backward of point, well played that and gets it down to third man rope

Australia 179/8   JP Faulkner 26* (24b 1x4 1x6)

43.2

Tredwell to Faulkner, 1 run, back in the crease, clipped through square leg

Australia 190/8   JP Faulkner 32* (27b 2x4 1x6)

45.4

Broad to Faulkner, 1 run, very full on off stump, driven back towards the bowler, Broad gets a foot in the way but the ball runs behind the stumps and they get a single

Australia 193/9   JP Faulkner 33* (28b 2x4 1x6)

46.3

Anderson to Faulkner, 1 run, length ball on the stumps, kept out with bat and pad, it drops into the on side and they take a quick run

Australia 196/9   JP Faulkner 34* (29b 2x4 1x6)

47.1

Bresnan to Faulkner, 1 run, full on the stumps, flicked to short long leg where

47.5

Bresnan to Faulkner, no run, back of a length just outside off, punched to extra cover

47.6

Bresnan to Faulkner, 1 run, a little straighter, gets inside the line and tucks down to long leg

Australia 199/9   JP Faulkner 36* (32b 2x4 1x6)

48.1

Broad to Faulkner, 1 run, a foot outside off stump, Faulkner steps outside leg stump and chops down to third man, and, aha, the 200 comes up

48.3

Broad to Faulkner, FOUR, too straight and clipped past the short long leg, a very rare loose delivery

Bresnan to Faulkner, (no ball) FOUR, looked very high was it a beamer? It was, an edged down very fine past the keeper too

49.1

Bresnan to Faulkner, FOUR, steps to leg and slaps it past extra-cover, lovely stroke and Faulkner goes to 50, at least he's had a good day

49.2

Bresnan to Faulkner, no run, gets down low to paddle sweep but misses and it goes over leg stump to the keeper

49.3

Bresnan to Faulkner, 1 run, blocked on the stumps into the covers, finds a gap

49.5

Bresnan to Faulkner, 2 runs, slower ball on the stumps, waited for and slugged down to long-on

49.6

Bresnan to Faulkner, no run, finishes with a bumper and that's that

Australia 221/9   JP Faulkner 54* (42b 5x4 1x6)
