11.4

England 51/1   IJL Trott 1* (2b)

12.6

Mathews to Trott, 1 run, straight line on a decent length, this is how to do it Belly says Trott and flicks through square leg

England 53/1   IJL Trott 2* (3b)

13.1

13.2

Eranga to Trott, no run, back of a length just outside off stump, cut to backward point

13.3

Eranga to Trott, 2 runs, full on the leg stump, clipped down to long leg and Kulasekara races to his right, slides and save, excellent work

England 56/1   IJL Trott 5* (7b)

14.2

Mathews to Trott, FOUR, full ball on the stumps and Trott times it perfectly between midwicket and mid-on, don't bowl there to Trott, excellent timing

14.3

Mathews to Trott, 1 run, and again, this time it's a touch more middle and leg so Trott plays out to deep square leg, you won't earn a living bowling on Trott's pads

England 63/1   IJL Trott 10* (9b 1x4)

15.1

Eranga to Trott, no run, length outside off stump, too close to cut and Trott gets beaten outside the off stump

15.2

Eranga to Trott, 1 run, just tries to dab this and does it successfully down to third man

15.4

Eranga to Trott, 2 runs, back of a length outside off stump, cut hard into the ground and the deep cover point has to run to his right to field and they get two

15.5

Eranga to Trott, 2 runs, straighter line and flicked through midwicket for another couple

15.6

Eranga to Trott, no run, poor stroke, a bit of a waft outside off to a length ball that wasn't at all there to drive, very un-Trott

19.5

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, length delivery in the corridor outside off, tapped back

19.6

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, a run-out chance but it needed a direct hit from Dilshan! It was a fullish delivery outside off, Trott chopped down on it and the ball skittered into the gully region, Cook sent his partner back and he was scrambling, diving, probably wouldn't have made it

Kulasekara to Trott, no run, gets forward and blocks to off

21.4

Kulasekara to Trott, 1 run, an ungainly bit of work, this, from Trott, again showing his intent by walking out at Kula, hurried into pulling and it comes off the splice towards mid-on, who hits at the non-striker's end but Trott had made his ground
