14.1

Collingwood to Cooper, no run, angled down to backward point

18.4

Anderson to Cooper, 1 run, on off stump, worked into the leg side...oh, what's happened there? Ian Bell has flung it into the ground towards Prior where it bounces in the footholes and loops over the keeper away for a single. Slightly needless.

23.1

Pietersen to Cooper, no run, starts well, touch of flight, touch of spin, carefully defended

23.2

Pietersen to Cooper, FOUR, ah the curse of the part-time spinner - the dragged down short ball. Cooper does the business and cuts it away past point to the boundary

24.6

Netherlands 132/2   TLW Cooper 45* (68b 3x4)

27.4

Bresnan to Cooper, 1 run, slightly slower ball from Bresnan and Cooper turns his hands over the ball to send it to leg

27.6

Bresnan to Cooper, 1 run, dropped by Pietersen. Tough chance and it was grim cricket. "Village all round," spits Miller. Short ball dragged down the leg side, the pull shot finds a top edge that loops down to fine leg where Pietersen skirts round, dives, thrusts out a hand, which meets the ball only for it to bobble out

Netherlands 136/2   TLW Cooper 47* (72b 3x4)
28.1

Collingwood to Cooper, OUT, gone this time. KP's mistake doesn't cost much. Nothing exceptional really, fullish ball chipped straight to short midwicket. Not spectacular but England will be hugely relieved
