5.2

Malinga to Cook, 4 leg byes, length ball, it swings into the pads of Cook, a big appeal for lbw, is this too high? Billy Bowden says it did and Sri Lanka do not review, right call I think, Hawk Eye has it comfortably missing the bails, it runs off the pad past slip for four

7.4

Malinga to Bell, no run, a touch shorter in length and blocked back up the wicket

7.5

Malinga to Root, no run, very full, fast yorker just outside off and goes through to the keeper

43.6

Malinga to Root, FOUR, four more through the covers, you can't bowl off stump to a good player with no cover on the off side, classical cover drive through cover point

45.4

Malinga to Morgan, OUT, full on the off stump, played forward, a huge cry for lbw and given out! It was pad first but going across Morgan and was it going on to miss off stump? Bowden thought not. Very full and Morgan couldn't get the bat down on it in time
