Mohammad Hafeez to Strauss, 2 runs, back of a length and flicked out through midwicket, chase back for mid on

13.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Strauss, OUT, gone, caught at short leg. Strauss uncommitted in his footwork and gets a big inside edge onto his pad that pops up for a simply catch to short leg. No real movement from the delivery but Strauss' uncertainty has cost him. A firm prod forward provides him another failure and the pressure ramps up once more on England's batting...
