44.1

Oram to Shah, no run, pushed from the crease to point

Oram to Shah, 1 run, thumped hard to the left of Oram but only the one as long-off and long-on are in the deep

Oram to Shah, 1 run, punched into the pitch a yard to the off from the back foot, all pace off the ball and an easy one

44.6

Oram to Shah, no run, lovely yorker as Shah shimmied to the off, he has to adjust and jab down on it, falling to the off as he does so

45.3

Vettori to Shah, 2 runs, firm drive with his trademark follow through, the sweeper round to field

45.4

Vettori to Shah, OUT, another wicket for Vettori but they are coming at a cost ... tossed up, Shah goes for the straight six but gets too much elevation and Fulton has time to come five yards in from the boundary to take a good catch at long-off

England 291/5   OA Shah 5 (7b)
