12.4

Bresnan to Hughes, 1 run, played a bit firmer into the gully and is this another tough chance to Cook? It went ever so quickly to him from a flashing blade and it carried again to his diving left-hand but again he couldn't cling on to what would have been a pearler

Australia 63/2   PJ Hughes 19* (39b 2x4)

20.1

Root to Hughes, no run, tossed up and driven hard straight to the man at extra cover - another dot

25.4

Root to Hughes, OUT, skids on, Hughes plays an ugly swipe across the line and is hit in front - Dharmasena gives it! That was a horrible shot from Hughes, he was getting tied down by Root's gentle offies, he tried to pull the ball off a length and was struck in front of middle and leg; the question was whether it would clip leg but Dharmasena was happy enough and Hughes decides against reviewing
