    0.4 full length, Cook feels for it just outside off and nicks it low to Haddin and once again Alistair Cook has fallen early in the piece. It's a decent delivery, tighter line again from the previous delivery which was left, forcing Cook to play and it left him, taking a thin outside edge and Haddin bagged the chance low down 4/1

    17.3 slog swept, missed completely and Bell is bowled. He nailed one into the stands previously but this is to a ball angled in, cramping Bell for room and it hurried onto him and his swipe across the line failed to gain any connection 62/3

    6.5 full at the pads, Root misses and is struck on the pad, looks pretty straight and given out lbw. We do have reviews available and Root goes upstairs. There were two noises but it doesn't appear as if Root has hit this, nothing on Hot Spot and Hawk Eye has it crashing into leg stump. A very good decision from the umpire and you have to say not the best review from Root. He was done by some inswing and he missed playing across the line 22/2
    45.4 slapped outside off and another thick top edge to third man and this time Doherty takes the catch running in, this was a slightly easier chance with less ground to make up but he held on well that time brining to an end a fine innings from Ballance 228/7
    31.4 whipped in the air from outside off and finds extra cover who takes a simple catch at head height. That's a big wicket because Morgan was playing beautifully but he's got this drive wrong and picked out the only fielder in front of the bat on the off side in the circle 145/4
    37.5 back of a length that just bounces on Bopara looking to stay leg side and flick to leg, it angled in and takes the glove on the way through to Haddin 173/5

    42.6 another swing to leg, misses and this time loses his middle and off bail. Two previous attempts at that leg side heave failed and it's third time unlucky as this miss costs him his wicket, Faulkner finally finding the timbers 206/6

    39.3 bottom hand comes off the bat, a sliced drive soars down to third man... and, me oh my, Ballance pouches it! A wicket for Stokes, a catch for Ballance and a standing salute for Finch. If the same fielder had taken a much easier chance 113 runs ago, this might have been a different game. Never mind that, though, twas a cracking innings 237/3
    27.5 down the track and hammers it miles high in the air, Warner hasn't quite got this and Stokes takes the catch a right old steepler n'all, half a yard inside the long-on boundary 163/1
    28.4 full and it nips back past the drive and knocks out off stump. Reward for Jordan who has been impressive despite England's predicament. A beauty this is, full enough to draw Watson into the drive and a bit of in-duck off the seam to beat the bat and take out the off peg, a nice moment for the bowler 165/2
    41.6 got him, another one late in the piece! Clarke went aggressively at the ball, wasn't quite there to drive and it hit high up the bat, looping to mid-off. Cook takes the catch, again thinking to himself 'What if?' 247/4
