England 246/8   JM Anderson 1* (3b)

46.5

Lee to Anderson, no run, the ball skids through and hurries Anderson as he looks to clip it to the on side, England in a tricky situation here in the Powerplay

46.6

Lee to Anderson, 1 run, that's more like it, drags the length back and Anderson shuffles and easily clips it away to the on side

England 253/9   JM Anderson 2* (5b)

47.1

Watson to Anderson, no run, makes a bit of room and forces it to mid-on

47.2

Watson to Anderson, no run, tries to lash that square of the wicket through the off side but he misses it completely

47.3

Watson to Anderson, 1 wide, drags the length back and the batsman gets under that bouncer, close to being penalised

47.3

Watson to Anderson, 2 runs, well he hoicks him over midwicket this time but the timing isn't good enough to fetch a boundary

47.4

Watson to Anderson, 1 run, OUT, confusion galore! Seemed like a sports blooper, Anderson goes right back and across and nearly trods onto his stumps as he works it to midwicket, first run comfortably taken but there's confusion about the second, Anderson wants it, Onions doesn't, Onions has no option but to leave his crease but he turns back and it's too late as Paine collects the throw from Ferguson whips off the bails

G Onions run out 1 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 257/10   JM Anderson 5* (9b)
