49.1

Ryder to Mascarenhas, SIX, in the slot and Mascarenhas launches that straight, high and long ... clears the sightscreen and plops into the mud behind it

Ryder to Mascarenhas, 2 runs, driven to Taylor at long-on and they sprint the second

49.3

Ryder to Mascarenhas, FOUR, cracked through the covers, into the gap and four all the way

49.4

Ryder to Mascarenhas, SIX, carved from outside the off stump and that goes many a mile over wide long-on .. slower but in the slot

49.5

Ryder to Mascarenhas, 2 runs, driven to Taylor at long-on, Mascarenhas wants two and the throw to McCullum is decent but no more ... McCullum whips off the bails and it's tight ... two replays look as if he is in ... the third looks tighter ... but he gets the benefit to a smattering of boos

49.6

Ryder to Mascarenhas, 2 runs, well bowled, speared in at his feet, he digs it to Taylor in the firing line at long-on, again Mascarenhas wants a second but no drama this time as Taylor misfields. Persevering with Ryder was an expensive gamble ... his last three overs went for 45. As a one or two-over shock tactic he seems to have value ...

England 242/7   JD Ryder 5-0-50-0
