    111.6 angling back in and struck high on the pad... given by Bruce Oxenford! Vijay immediately resorts to DRS looks rather forlornly at the umpire and then drags himself away for a magnificent 146. That looked high to me at first glance, actually hit the thigh pad - though Oxenford could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that no delivery was going to pass over the stumps on this pitch 304/5
    6.6 superbly taken by Prior! Whatever happened to that hamstring? Anderson pushes the length up, gets it to deviate just enough to catch the edge of Dhawan's bat.. He was looking to push tentatively.. The edge would have gone to first slip but Prior dives to his left to pluck out a one-hander. Anderson's 50th wicket in Trent Bridge 33/1
    31.2 whoa!! That is an awesome catch and an awesome trap! Ian Bell you beauty, he takes a screamer at silly mid-on, diving full length to his right to pluck a one-hander! It held on to the wicket a bit and Pujara pushed it in the air tentatively. Super strike just after lunch. 106/2
    32.5 pitch! What pitch! England have had some magic potion during lunch. He bowls an absolute gem outside off, it straightens after pitching, Kohli has to play at that, it catches the shoulder of the bat and lands in second-slip's palms.. Two in two overs. 107/3
    59.6 Cook has taken it this time! Well done for keeping his eyes on the ball! Short ball on off, Rahane, who was flustered by that short ball earlier, goes for the pull and he is too early into the shot, he gets a toe and the ball ricochets straight to Cook at silly point. Picture that. The pull, the ball going to silly point off the toe. Strange dismissal, but that is reward for some smart bowling here. It falls into Cook's lap 178/4
    121.1 he is dead here! Dhoni has been found out by a direct hit from mid-off. Dhoni looked for a quick single with a soft push and he is a quick man, but Anderson is quick himself. He fires it on to the non-striker's end to wake up everyone.. No one was expecting that run out till it hit the stumps 345/7
    119.3 the lunch break has brought a wicket for England! This is a poor shot from Jadeja who looks to whack it through covers without ever moving his feet. It's another thing that there was no width on that either. All he could manage was a thick outside edge to the keeper. More of a T20 shot there. 344/6
    121.4 and another! This is unravelling rather quickly! Stokes serves it up full and wide, Binny goes after, gets a solid connection on that but unfortunately for him, it's aimed straight at Root at point. 345/8

    160.6 tries to repeat the shot but he has holed out to mid-on this time, bringing an end to England's misery, just before the new ball was due 457/10
    122.5 Ishant's judgment has got the better of him! He shoulders arms to a straight one and loses his off stump..No celebrations from Broad this time 346/9

    3.3 he is got him! Cook's horror run continues! He loses his leg stump. Smart bowling from Shami as Cook was repeatedly exposing his stumps in the previous over, walking too far over to the off side. Shami keeps it straight and simple, targets the stumps, gets it to wobble just enough to beat the batsman's attempted push to the leg side, hits the pads along the way and then bingo.. 9/1

    49.3 nip back again, rapped in front - and given! He was stuck a little on the crease, good ball from Ishant and India have the traditional post-lunch breakthrough! Robson purses his lips, maybe thinks he got some bat on it... There was a faint sound, though looked a good appeal first up. There's no option to review but Robson will doubtless be told back in the changing room that Hot Spot picked up an inside edge 134/2
    55.3 pitched up, pinned in front again, Ishant gets his man! Oxenford nods his assent, definitely no bat involved this time, Ishant does a dance of delight - he's done it again, both of England's set batsmen sent back to the changing room. This was a cracker of a ball to Ballance, who is a little uncertain on that line, it straightened enough to beat the inside edge and hit halfway up the front leg 154/3
    59.5 shortish, outside off... and Bell dabs it through to Dhoni! A third wicket for Ishant, what a spell this has been! Inexplicable shot from Bell, maybe just done by some extra bounce, wanted to play a late cut but tried to pull out at the last second, the ball kissing the face of the bat and flying through to the keeper. Oxenford gave it a look and then pulled the trigger 172/4

    69.2 this is gone! Weird dismissal but guess what, this edge has carried to first slip. I will explain how. So this is an intended bouncer, and Moeen was surprised, took his eyes off completely! But this one doesn't get up as much as he would have wanted, hits his glove and lobs up for the slip fielder. He walks away immediately, accepting he had made a poor decision to take his eyes off 197/5
    70.3 and another one joins the procession! Prior is not very happy with the decision and he has the right to be peeved! Dhoni appeals for a catch - a good one because he is standing up - but that noise was probably from the bat hitting the pad 202/6
    70.5 there is no doubt about this one! This one is bowled from outside off, straightens a touch and Stokes - it can be said - plays a loose shot at that, pushing at it away from the body.. And that is it.. Dhoni gobbles it up 202/7

    84.4 inswinger from Bhuvnesh - got him, trapped in front! This is an excellent call from umpoire Dharmasena, with the bowler coming over the wicket the suspicion may have been it pitched outside leg but it was bang in line, sneaking back at Broad, who isn't really one for moving his feet. Thumped the pads and would have struck middle and leg 280/8
    91.3 he has his fourth! Bhuvi gets this one to jag back into the batsman and hits the top of off! Plunkett showed the same weakness in the last over and Bhuvi does enough to exploit that 298/9
    144.5 it's over! No hundred for Anderson and the stand ends on 198. He chases a full delivery outside off and edges to the right hand of slip, who is stood quite wide, and it's an excellent catch. Five wickets for Bhuvneshwar, hard-earned. 496/10

    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
