    40.6 Whoa! Moeen gets a second! As if the boredom has got to the batsmen too. Vijay charges down the pitch and this time, he was looking to launch this big, but plays inside the line of a straighter one, he gets a faint edge through to Prior, who could have stumped him as well if he wanted to 140/2

    11.4 what a soft dismissal! This is come from nowhere. Dhawan comes down the pitch and smashes the low full toss straight back to the bowler, Moeen accepts it gleefully. The bowler can't believe it, Dhawan can't believe it either 49/1
    41.1 excitement! There is indeed an invisible leopard on the field now! No one saw it but Pujara probably. He cuts this innocuous short and wide one straight to Stokes at point, who fumbles it the first time before diving to his left to catch the ricochet off his chest. Pujara can't believe what he has done. Lead is 101 140/3

    49.3 full, sliding in, Kohli plays across it, huge appeal for lbw and given out! An early strike for England and that looked pretty straight, no chance to review of course but I'm sure Kohli couldn't have been saved. It was a full delivery that drifted in to beat Kohli aiming leg side, he was struck flush and quite low on the pad, almost bang in front 168/4
    51.1 full length delivery, Rahane forward just outside off and nicks it behind! What a start for England, a hint of reverse-swing into the right-hander forced him to play, it took a healthy outside edge and Prior bagged a sitter straight to him 173/5
    61.1 immediate impact! This comes in big time in the air. Dhoni, who is stuck in the crease, looks to whip this through towards mid-on but is a touch too late to bring his back down. It sneaks in through the gap and crashes the stump arrangement - it actually flicks the front pad. Looks like Dhoni wasn't sure of his shot - suddenly looked to go hard at it while he has been happy to defend everything all morning. 184/6
    82.1 full, it shapes away a little, Jadeja forward pushing at it and edges behind! The new ball breaks the partnership, some movement away from the left-hander finds a little tickle and Prior holds on with the ball swinging back at him a little, he seemed relieved to have caught it, but caught it he did and Anderson strikes 249/7

    101.6 there is going to be no century for Binny here! And Moeen gets his third. It was tossed up from round the wicket, pitches in line, turns in and beats the inside edge to hit the pads. Loud appeal immediately from the bowler and the keeper and Kumar Dharamasena, an offspinner himself, raises his finger after a pause 340/8

    122.3 full delivery down the leg side, flicked at, a huge appeal for a strangle and given out!!! Cook has a Test wicket! He tears off in celebration! A nonchalant take from Prior with one hand, they all went up, and Bruce Oxenford gave it out straight away, there's a mark on Hot Spot, great decision 387/9
