Australia 151/6   RS Bopara 3-0-20-0

40.1

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

40.2

Bopara to Johnson, 1 leg bye, full of length that swings back into the pads, brief cry for lbw but it's pitched outside leg stump, it cannons down to third man

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

40.4

Bopara to Johnson, 2 runs, powerfully driven off a full length on the stumps, gets it wide of long-on and they get a couple

40.5

Bopara to Johnson, 3 runs, another slower ball, this is spotted and pulled just behind square, Anderson slides and saves the boundary, fine sliding effort

40.6

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

Australia 163/7   RS Bopara 4-0-28-0

42.1

Bopara to Johnson, no run, around the wicket, slower ball on the stumps, swung at, miles too soon with the stroke, gets an inside edge past the stumps

42.2

Bopara to Johnson, 1 run, full on the stumps, slugged down to long-on

42.3

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

42.4

Bopara to Johnson, OUT, full toss comes off high on the bat and loops to point. Oh dear Mitchell, a waist-high full toss, he's tried to slug it over the off side but is too late on the stroke and chipped up an easy catch to Morgan, they umpires had a quick check for the height of the delivery but concurred that it was fine

MG Johnson c Morgan b Bopara 8 (18m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

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   RS Bopara 5-0-34-1
