Johnson to Cook, no run, in the channel outside off, better first ball from this Mitch, Cook leaves


Johnson to Cook, no run, slightly overpitched, again a little leg side, shovelled towards backward square


Johnson to Cook, no run, fullish and shaping nicely around off stump, gets across and shows it the face in defence


Johnson to Cook, no run, full and holding its line on off stump, again Cook gets his bat down in time

England 6/0   MG Johnson 1-0-1-0

Johnson to Cook, no run, full and wide and beats Cook driving, it swung a touch though it was probably one to be leaving at this stage, even in one-day mode


Johnson to Cook, no run, cracked off the back foot towards point, plenty of power on the shot but David Warner makes a customarily smart stop


Johnson to Cook, 2 runs, Cook gets forward and clips firmly off his front pad through midwicket, touch too full and straight again from Johnson


Johnson to Cook, 1 run, pitched up a foot or so outside off, Cook chops down on it and the ball squirts through midwicket


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, sharp bouncer from Johnson, he's working up decent pace and this gets big on Bell, who thrusts his hands at it and does well to keep it down towards gully


Johnson to Cook, no run, pitched up outside the line of off, textbook front-foot drive from Cook but he picks mid-off

Johnson to Cook, no run, tighter line and blocked into the leg side


Johnson to Cook, 2 runs, full, veering towards leg stump, glanced in front of square by Cook and the back on the boundary covers good ground to prevent a boundary


Johnson to Cook, 1 leg bye, again that low, slingy action sends the ball tailing towards leg, misses with a clip this time and it rolls away off the pad


Johnson to Bell, no run, fired across on a good length, going on with the arm, Bell lets it through


Johnson to Bell, no run, pitched up around middle and off, Bell taps respectfully back down the pitch

England 30/0   MG Johnson 3-0-7-0

Johnson to Bell, no run, that's an excellent line from Johnson to Bell, speared across and lifting sharply, the batsman has his off stump covered but is drawn into a bit of a flirt anyway


Johnson to Bell, 1 leg bye, straighter, attempts to tuck off his pads but doesn't get any bat on it


Johnson to Cook, FOUR, Johnson gets the boundary treatment now, full and wide of the stumps, the ball isn't doing anything threatening through the air or off the pitch and Cook confidently punches another four through the covers


Johnson to Cook, 1 run, gets across and tucks one through square leg


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, another well-directed bumper, Bell jerks his bat up in front of his face and the ball flies off the handle in the air through backward square leg


Johnson to Cook, 2 runs, slung down around leg stump, Cook waits on it and squirrels another couple behind square on the leg side

England 45/0   MG Johnson 4-0-15-0

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, worked from the off stump through the leg side again...tick, tick, tick by this pair


Johnson to Bell, no run, outside off, angled across Bell who leaves alone...goes on the second bounce to Wade


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, dropped in short, Bell hops back and pulls firmly in front of square

England 115/1   MG Johnson 5-0-19-0

Johnson to Bell, FOUR, some aggression from Bell as he drives a full, wide delivery over the top of backward point and he places it well enough to beat the boundary sweeper


Johnson to Bell, no run, a spanking drive from Bell but it rockets straight to cover


Johnson to Bell, no run, full and wide, going across Bell who chases it with out off drive but doesn't make contact


Johnson to Bell, no run, he's feeding Bell's off-side strokes at the moment but he again picks out backward point


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, a short ball that sits in the surface and Bell pulls it down to towards fine leg


Johnson to Trott, no run, played out to backward point

England 123/1   MG Johnson 6-0-24-0

Johnson to Bell, FOUR, short ball and Bell top edges his pull straight over the wicketkeeper...extra pace did for Bell, but the end result good for England


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, looks as though he's trying to push on now, a low full toss, slower ball, outside off and the bottom hand comes off the bat as he drives to drive...gets a single through square


Johnson to Trott, 1 run, placed through the off side


Johnson to Bell, 1 run, short again, Bell is more comfortable with this one as he pulls in front of square


Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, good placement and good running...Trott worked this from outside off through fine leg and quickly spotted the chance for a second. It was tight, but he was well back in the end


Johnson to Trott, 1 run, more swift running, pushed towards mid-off and he scampers...10 from the over

England 142/1   MG Johnson 7-0-34-0

Johnson to Bresnan, 1 run, goes for the yorker wide of the stumps, Bresnan manages to work it away for a single through cover


Johnson to Bopara, 2 runs, slices this high, high into the off side, Bopara done by the slower ball as he tried to cart it back down the ground, it swirled above Bailey in the covers, he didn't get under it and then failed to get a finger on the attempted catch too!


Johnson to Bopara, 1 run, fired across and Bopara swings hard, gets a toe end past Wade


Johnson to Bresnan, 1 wide, sprayed very wide this time, as Bresnan stepped away - this one's called


Johnson to Bresnan, 1 leg bye, dug in short, the batsman swings across the line and misses, hits the body and runs away behind square - these two have put on fifty in quick time


Johnson to Bopara, FOUR, makes a calculated step across his stumps, Johnson pitches it up outside off and this is right under Bopara's nose, he middles it, smacked low straight back down the ground and it beats the diving long-off for another boundary


Johnson to Bopara, 1 run, length ball, swung hard through midwicket but he picks out the the man in the deep and it's just a single to end a handy little cameo from Bopara and the innings with England 269 for 6

England 269/6   MG Johnson 8-0-44-0
