McClenaghan to Bopara, no run, clears the front leg and swings over the leg side, Bopara missed but there's an appeal for caught behind, not out given, but they try the review they have left. Any touch on Hot Spot? Nope, so on we go, worth a try, there was a very brief appeal primarily by the keeper


McClenaghan to Bopara, OUT, slugged straight up in the air and taken at square leg. It was a decent bumper, too quickly onto Bopara's hook, it went up and Williamson held the chance comfortably at square leg, really good bowling this from McClenaghan, banged it in and Bopara got it high on the bat to present another easy chance to the outfielders

RS Bopara c Williamson b McClenaghan 9 (20m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

England 166/7   RS Bopara 9 (11b 1x4)
