5.1

Southee to Strauss, no run, sprays this one very wide of Strauss's off stump

5.2

Southee to Strauss, no run, another appeal from Southee, nips back into Strauss and takes the pad, but there's a hefty inside edge involved too...keeping Strauss on his toes

5.3

Southee to Strauss, no run, pushed across the left hander, this one doesn't swing

5.4

Southee to Strauss, no run, he's giving it every chance to swing by sticking to a full length outside off, Strauss watches it closely and leaves

5.5

Southee to Strauss, OUT, gone! well, well what a start for Southee...a wide ball to Strauss which tempts an expansive and loose drive, Jamie How pulls off a fine catch in the gully and all of a sudden England are in some trouble

AJ Strauss c How b Southee 0 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 4/2   AJ Strauss 0 (6b)
