    11.4 full length angled across Cook who pushes at it and edges behind! Prasad with the breakthrough. A ball Cook should have left, it was a nothing stroke, played away from his body, and Cook's promising start comes to an end 84/1
    14.5 opens the face and presses wide enough of mid-off for a single but oh no!! Hales is rooted to the crease at the non-striker's end, Moeen has to get back but the throw is in time! What a complete disaster for England. There was a single available all day but for some reason Hales shuffled out of his ground a few yards but without turning to face his partner, shuffled back to the bowler's end, Moeen has almost run two and is short getting back to the striker's end 103/2
    21.5 gone this time! Hales can't make the most of his life, he was itching to cut loose. Used his feet, it was a length delivery, and he heaved it to mid-on who just had to move a little to his left. Didn't really need to do that after the earlier reprieve and the six 144/3

    22.3 brilliant from Sangakkara! Wonderful anticipation. He saw Bopara go down early for a paddle sweep and started to move to his left, and when the ball glanced off the face of the bat he snaffled the catch brilliantly almost by the edge of the cut strip. 151/4
    23.1 the collapse is on! Morgan's problems continue. It was a short ball, not especially rapid but well directed around middle and leg, he went for the hook and the ball took a top edge with was comfortably held at long leg 152/5
