Mills to Strauss, OUT, shot off the track, hit a crack on the pitch that, short of a good length just marginally outside off stump, surprises Strauss as it kicks off, takes the outside edge, a very thin one, and McCullum makes no mistake

AJ Strauss c †McCullum b Mills 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   JL Denly 0* (0b)   KD Mills 0.2-0-0-1

Bond to Denly, OUT, timber! Kept low, came back in and Denly failed to get his bat down in time, seamed in and moved inwards off the pitch as well to knock back the off stump

JL Denly b Bond 5 (16m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

England 10/2   OA Shah 3* (9b)   SE Bond 1.5-0-2-1

Bond to Shah, OUT, got him! Awkward short from Shah, bowled it full outside off, got it to move away, Shah moved across and tried to flick it over square leg, got a thick edge straight to McCullum

OA Shah c †McCullum b Bond 3 (21m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

England 13/3   PD Collingwood 3* (7b)   SE Bond 2.1-0-3-2

Butler to Morgan, OUT, gone! Butler strikes! Short outside off, got some extra bounce there, went for the cut, got a thick edge and McCullum, trying to collect it over his head, fumbled it and it lobbed up behind him, sharp reaction from Taylor at first slip who dived to his right to complete the catch

EJG Morgan c Taylor b Butler 9 (60m 40b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.50

England 50/4   PD Collingwood 31* (46b 2x4 2x6)   IG Butler 1.2-0-3-1

Elliott to Collingwood, OUT, Excellent catch by Taylor! Short outside off, went for the pull, it appeared it came on to him a little too quickly, mistimed it, hit him high on the bat but it seemed as though it would just about clear midwicket, but Taylor leapt with his outstretched right hand, timing his jump to perfection and snapping it out of thin air to end Collingwood's fighting knock

PD Collingwood c Taylor b Elliott 40 (94m 58b 2x4 3x6) SR: 68.96

England 80/5   RS Bopara 15* (23b 1x4)   GD Elliott 2-0-11-1

Elliott to Wright, OUT, edged and gone! Probing line just a fraction outside off and just a hint of away movement with some extra bounce, a lethal combination, Wright plays at it, is surprised by the bounce and nicks it straight to the keeper

LJ Wright c †McCullum b Elliott 4 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 90/6   RS Bopara 19* (30b 2x4)   GD Elliott 3-0-15-2

Elliott to Broad, OUT, caught and bowled! England continue to slide, bowled on a good length on middle, hit the pitch hard as well as the bat, Broad tried to defend it onto the pitch with hard hands, it struck him high on the bat and lobbed up in front of Elliott who bent low and took it clean on his follow-through

SCJ Broad c & b Elliott 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 95/7   RS Bopara 22* (34b 2x4)   GD Elliott 3.1-0-16-3

Elliott to Swann, OUT, Elliott takes four! Bangs it in short again, it's fetched him wickets today, Swann goes for the pull, again a little late into the shot, gets the top edge and McCullum waits endlessly for the law of gravity to take effect and watches it into his palms

GP Swann c †McCullum b Elliott 11 (17m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.00

England 109/8   RS Bopara 25* (39b 2x4)   GD Elliott 5.2-0-24-4

Bond to Bopara, OUT, plumb! Kept low, the pitch is still doing things, bowled on a good length on middle and didn't rise up one bit, struck Bopara extremely low on the pads as he went across to work it into the leg side, no way he was going to get down to playing that one, England are nine down, was struck in line with middle and leg

RS Bopara lbw b Bond 30 (78m 51b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

England 117/9   RJ Sidebottom 1* (10b)   SE Bond 10-2-21-3

Vettori to Sidebottom, OUT, Vettori finishes it off, bowled on a good length on middle, rose up to Sidebottom who gets forward and just chips it straight to midwicket

RJ Sidebottom c Taylor b Vettori 20 (51m 41b 3x4 0x6) SR: 48.78

England 146/10   JM Anderson 4* (18b)   DL Vettori 1.1-0-2-1
