0.1

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, no run, over the wicket, pushed across on a length towards off stump, and this stays low as Kieswetter shoulders arms, bobbling through to the keeper

0.2

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, no run, length ball outside the line of off, Kieswetter watches it through again

0.3

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, no run, tighter line to the stumps, the batsman gets forward in defence

0.4

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, no run, length ball around the line of off, backs away and chops to cover, no run there

0.5

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, no run, pitched up a little more, half forward and punched to mid-on, not a clean strike and that's another dot ball for Zadran

0.6

Shapoor Zadran to Kieswetter, OUT, gone, played on! Zadran's arms are outspread in celebration and Kieswetter trudges off after seeing out a wicket maiden to open the match! This one did bounce a bit, the batsman stayed back, tried to open the face and use the pace on the ball and ended up blocking down into the ground in front of the stumps, the ball flicking off the bails on its way back up

C Kieswetter b Shapoor Zadran 0 (4m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   Shapoor Zadran 1-1-0-1
2.1

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, no run, back of a length, slightly outside off, Hales tries to swivel pull but fails to connect

2.2

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, no run, length ball, pushed across and chopped to point, excellent diving stop means that Zadran still hasn't conceded a run

2.3

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, no run, touch full, outside off and drawing Hales into the draw, connects with a crisp shot but again picks out the man at cover - another dot

2.4

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, 1 run, good length in the corridor outside off, pushed into the ground, slightly wide of mid-off and they hurry through for one

2.5

Shapoor Zadran to Wright, no run, another one stays low as Wright swings and misses outside off

2.6

Shapoor Zadran to Wright, FOUR, he connects this time, smiting the ball low between point and cover, it slows up on its way to rope but Wright is off the mark

England 10/1   Shapoor Zadran 2-1-5-1
4.1

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, 4 byes, woof, that's leapt off the pitch, over Hales attempted pull shot, over the keeper's outstretched hand and away for byes

4.2

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, FOUR, short and wide and drilled in front of point off the back foot, meaty swing of the bat from Hales

4.3

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, FOUR, too full on leg stump this time, flicked on the 45 and the fielder on the edge of the circle can't quite get there, four more

4.4

Shapoor Zadran to Hales, 1 run, length ball, tucked towards mid-off for one

4.5

Shapoor Zadran to Wright, FOUR, full of a length and outside off, Wright stuffs this back down the ground past mid-off, so fine it almost clocked Hales on the box on its way back

4.6

Shapoor Zadran to Wright, SIX, oh, that's gone a long way, steps out and cream-crackers an overpitched delivery over long-on, Wright's Popeye forearms doing maximum damage

England 38/1   Shapoor Zadran 3-1-24-1
