    1.4 swing for Richardson, Roy chases it on the drive - but plinked off the toe to extra cover! Impetuous shot, nowhere near the line and Richardson bags the opening wicket, Roy trying to crash it on the up over the off side again but dollying up a simple catch. Looks like a slower delivery, in fact 16/1

    6.1 round the wicket, angled in and straightening, pops off the leading edge - and Agar dances around Malan backing up to take a smart low catch! He lost sight of it momentarily but took it without drama. Australia break through 60/2
    15.3 tossed up and Malan slog-sweeps... picks out deep backward square leg! Maxwell strikes again and England's anchor is sunk, Malan safely pouched just in front of the rope for a round 50 126/6
    9.4 got 'im! Morgan goes for a hasty swipe down the ground and top edges to the edge of the ring! Nicely bowled by Maxwell, tossed it up a bit more, Morgan wasn't to the pitch and mishit the ball straight up, Warner steadying himself well at mid-off to take the catch 94/3
    12.2 fullish, 129kph in the channel... and Buttler plops it straight into the hands of mid-off! Caught in two minds, I think, not a full-blooded drive, maybe duped by a cutter and he ended up chipping it to man on the ring 109/4
    14.1 tossed up, grip and spin, Billings' leading edge this time goes straight back to the bowler! Australia chipping away, a second return catch for Agar, this one even more straightforward. Billings frowns to himself and strides off 122/5
    15.4 stumped, Willey loses his head! And his wicket... A misbegotten charge and Carey whips off the bails, Willey nowhere near getting his foot back 126/7

    16.3 banged in short, Rashid pulls and picks out deep square leg! Looked like Rashid was through his shot early, maybe expecting it to be quicker, and it flew off the toe of the bat straight to Stoinis, who clasped it low down in front of him 127/8
    17.2 does him for (lack of) pace and Curran is gone second ball! Trying to whack it down the ground, completely foxed by the knuckleball and chipped to Warner backpedaling from mid-off 137/9

    0.2 short, pulled, out! Utterly leathered, but straight to deep square leg. And, well, we've got fireworks already! 4/1

    8.4 tossed up, battered back at the bowler, and plucked in one hand in front of his face! A stunning instinctive take, Rashid didn't know much about that to be honest, but he spread his fingers wide and has given England a glimmer 82/3
    0.4 more inswing, and straight through the gate! Perfect line and length, Lynn's feet went nowhere as he heaved meekly down the wrong line, and we've got a contest 4/2

    11.4 oops, he's gone and given it away! A wild swipe on the up, and top-edged to mid-off, where it plops, with goober-like ease, into Sam Billings' hands 98/4
