17.3

Faulkner to Bell, no run, forward on off stump, defended square into the off side

17.4

Faulkner to Bell, 2 leg byes, short of a length, Bell goes a long way across his crease and it flicks his thigh pad towards fine leg

17.5

Faulkner to Bell, 2 runs, slower ball on the stumps, neatly tucked off the pads through square leg with just the placement to allow him back for a second

17.6

Faulkner to Bell, no run, touch of extra bounce, lifts from quite a full length and catches Bell by surprise but he's able to take the bottom hand off the bat as he defends

21.1

Faulkner to Trott, 1 run, full and wide outside off, Trott strides forward and drives to the sweeper who is a busy man at the moment

21.2

21.3

Faulkner to Bell, no run, back on a full length, driven firmly to cover

21.4

Faulkner to Bell, no run, the bottom hand comes off the bat as he drives a fraction early, the ball goes in the air for a while but falls well short of point

37.2

Faulkner to Root, no run, full on leg stump, squeezed to midwicket

37.3

Faulkner to Root, 3 runs, flicked away off leg stump, nicely placed between long leg and deep square, Voges gets around to prevent the boundary but his flick to McKay is fumbled and it allows a third

37.4

Faulkner to Bell, OUT, full and straight, Bell gets cleaned up so he won't have a hometown hundred...Bell suggests the ball didn't bounce as he expected, but I just think he missed a straight one

41.6

Faulkner to Bopara, 1 leg bye, pitched up around leg stump, Faulkner appeals as the ball thumps Bopara's pad and rolls into the off side ... and Australia decide to review the not-out decision. And the replays show it landed and struck outside the line, so that's a DRS fail for Australia

England 205/4   JP Faulkner 7-0-31-1

43.1

Faulkner to Buttler, OUT, and Buttler's gone second ball, edging on to his stumps! Good areas from Faulkner, not quite wide or full enough for the drive and Buttler played away from his body, not much footwork, the ball cannoning back into his standing leg and then on to middle stump - the gunpowder has exploded in England's face!

43.5

Faulkner to Bresnan, 1 run, tip and run towards mid-off, slightly to one side of Warner but he collects cleanly and a direct hit might have seen Bresnan struggling

43.6

England 215/6   JP Faulkner 8-0-33-2

45.1

Faulkner to Bopara, FOUR, full and on the pads, only needs a tickle from Bopara's bat to send it skipping away to fine leg for a welcome boundary
