6,7,8,9,10 March 2013 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Southee to Compton, OUT, off stump delivery and plays on! He was late on the stroke and the ball has cannoned off the bottom of the bat into the off stump, early blow for Southee. Didn't quite get far enough forward considering the low bounce from that full length. It took the inside half of the toe of the bat and bounced low into off stump

NRD Compton b Southee 0 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 5/1   AN Cook 5* (10b)   TG Southee 1.2-0-4-1

Wagner to Cook, OUT, short and wide and Cook slaps it straight to point. A very poor stroke and Cook has gifted away his wicket having received a big let off in the previous over. He didn't get over the stroke, it perhaps got a little big on Cook, who, eager to alleviate the pressure, thrashed it square of the wicket but to point at shoulder height who took an easy catch

AN Cook c Rutherford b Wagner 10 (45m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

England 18/2   IJL Trott 8* (26b 1x4)   N Wagner 0.2-0-0-1

Wagner to Pietersen, OUT, full and straight, swinging in and plumb lbw! Pietersen gets a first-baller. What a delivery from Wager. Pietersen was so late on that, late inswing, Pietersen couldn't get the bat across in time and is trapped bang in front of all three

KP Pietersen lbw b Wagner 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 18/3   IJL Trott 8* (26b 1x4)   N Wagner 0.3-0-0-2

Wagner to Bell, OUT, full and driven and caught at short extra-cover and Bell, who had been playing so nicely, has popped up a catch, falling into the trap and the recovery is stymied by another loose stroke. Innocuous length ball on off stump, Bell is forward to drive and timed it well but in the air and Ruherford held his second catch of the morning, this time on the juggle a little but he grabbed it

IR Bell c Rutherford b Wagner 24 (68m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 58.53

England 64/4   IJL Trott 28* (67b 4x4)   N Wagner 7.1-2-24-3

Boult to Root, OUT, edged and taken at third slip and that is a good delivery, banged it back of a length and Root dabbled at it and got a big edge that was well taken. Sliding across the right-hander, Root couldn't get his bat inside the line in time, should have left it

JE Root c Brownlie b Boult 4 (17m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

England 71/5   IJL Trott 31* (77b 4x4)   TA Boult 6.4-0-12-1

Martin to Prior, OUT, back to cut and chips it to point and another poor stroke sees another wicket fall. Prior rocked back to try and play aggressively again from just outside off stump, back of a length, but got it off a top edge straight to the fielder at point who couldn't drop it. A first Test wicket for Martin but a bit of a gift

MJ Prior c Williamson b Martin 23 (41m 30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 76.66

England 108/6   IJL Trott 45* (114b 7x4)   BP Martin 5.5-3-11-1

Martin to Trott, OUT, swept at, straight up in the air and taken at short long leg, a good catch running in by Boult diving forward. Trott was trying to play towards the vacant area at deep square leg but top edged a ball that was probably too full to sweep

IJL Trott c Boult b Martin 45 (171m 121b 7x4 0x6) SR: 37.19

England 109/7   SCJ Broad 1* (2b)   BP Martin 6.2-3-12-2

Martin to Broad, OUT, and Broad promptly pulls directly to the man on the rope that is a shocker. Half-tracker pulled like catching practise to the deep fielder. Could have slogged it anywhere but found the fielder with perfection, a sorry tale for England this

SCJ Broad c Brownlie b Martin 10 (18m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

England 119/8   ST Finn 0* (6b)   BP Martin 7.2-3-20-3

Wagner to Finn, OUT, but Finn will score no more because he has pulled to deep square leg attempting another heave over the leg side. Again not the smartest cricket but a tailender can be forgiven for taking the field on again just as the man had been moved to the rope, got this pull off a top edge, beaten for pace and it was an easy catch for the man running in

ST Finn c Rutherford b Wagner 20 (57m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 166/9   JM Anderson 23* (33b 4x4)   N Wagner 10.3-2-42-4

Martin to Anderson, OUT, down the wicket, a huge swing and an outside edge to point and that completes a miserable effort from England. Perhaps understandably, Anderson trying to go after a few runs but got done by a little slider that totally threw him of course, he swung himself off his feet and produced an easy catch

JM Anderson c Wagner b Martin 23 (54m 39b 4x4 0x6) SR: 58.97

England 167/10   MS Panesar 1* (3b)   BP Martin 14-4-43-4
