29.4

Jadeja to Bopara, no run, and again, watchful stuff from the new batsman

30.1

Yadav to Bopara, 1 run, tucked off the hip out to deep square leg

30.5

Yadav to Bopara, no run, past the outside edge! Yadav pitched one full and found some shape away from the bat. Bopara's feet aren't really moving yet, and he wasn't in a good position to drive

30.6

Yadav to Bopara, no run, beaten again! This was even fuller, and may even have slipped under the bat rather than past the outside edge. Again Bopara was looking to drive, but couldn't lay bat on it

32.6

Yadav to Bopara, 1 run, again Yadav aims for the yorker, again it's a full toss but the damage is not great as Bopara drives to a deep mid off and hustles a single

England 168/3   RS Bopara 9* (13b 1x4)
33.1

Jadeja to Bopara, 1 run, hesitation in the running! Bopara popped the ball close on the off side and wandered out speculatively, the call from Trott eventually came and Bopara had to get the long strides out

Jadeja to Bopara, 1 run, swept to short fine leg

England 171/3   RS Bopara 11* (15b 1x4)
34.3

Yadav to Bopara, no run, beaten by the slower ball! Nicely held back by Yadav. It was the legcutter, and spat past the edge of Bopara's attempted cut

34.4

Yadav to Bopara, FOUR, ah, but the follow-up is not good! Yadav tries to send down the yorker, one presumes, but it's another full toss and this time he's punished, the glance flying down to fine leg

34.5

Yadav to Bopara, no run, Bopara defends a length delivery, the ball landing in the crease and Yadav sprinting through in his follow through to negate any thoughts of a cheeky single
