    8.4 gone this time! Just went it appeared things had turned for Cook he drives off the back foot to a short of a length delivery and Maxwell dives to his right at cover to hold a good catch. He was right to attack that delivery, just didn't get over he top of the shot. 50/1
    14.1 direct hit! Warner has pulled off a stunning run out. England continue to create their own problems. It was played square through the off side, Bell didn't really hesitate on coming for the second but Warner just swooped too quickly. He had one stump to aim at from side on and was deadly accurate from about half way to the boundary. Bell well short. Brilliant fielding 70/2
    22.4 Clarke has taken a stunner at square leg! Holy moly batsman, that is a remarkable catch! Stokes has gone for the sweep and smoked it out of the middle of the bat, Clarke at square leg has had to react instantly and does so, dives to his right and thrusts the right hand low to the ground and the ball sticks - that was tougher than most catches he'd get in the cordon. Super take. 91/3
    28.3 Coulter-Nile makes the breakthrough, and it's a rather poor piece of placement from Ballance. He's got some width and went the cut shot but sliced it upwards and Christian was out at deep point and ran in to take a reasonably comfortable catch 121/4
    41.3 what a catch! Christian in his follow through. Or is it? Morgan isn't taking the fielder's word for it. Christian was convinced, but the batsman has stood his ground. A few ugly scenes in the middle. Clarke isn't happy with Morgan. The umpires are stepping in. Well, we need another replay here. Tough to tell at first glance. Has it got his fingers under it? Yes, he has. He's given. Morgan has to walk off and gets booed as he does. Back to the ball itself, another cutter from Christian which held in the pitch, Morgan tried to work it away and got a looping edge that looped into the off side. Christian sprinted from his follow through, dived forward, and grasped it just above the turf. 186/6
    39.6 excellent catch! Bopara trying to run it down to third man, opened the face outside off stump and Haddin dives to his right 177/5
    43.2 massive wicket! That could kill off any late charge. Lack of pace doing for Buttler. It was outside off stump, around 105kph, Buttler tries to force through the off side and gets a big inside edge into the stumps 195/7

    44.2 that's a bit of a shocker from Broad. Short of a length, Broad goes for the pull and it goes straight up the air off a top edge which Haddin settles underneath 198/8
    48.4 this time he picks out the fielder...another good catch. Jordan trying to go over the leg side again, gets height but not the distance - needed to fetch it from outside off - and Finch steadied himself at deep square-leg 225/9

    6.6 Jordan has struck! The runs were flowing but Finch couldn't stop himself driving hard in the air and there is a man at cover who has no trouble holding this catch. He'll be disappointed with himself there - just couldn't keep that along the ground 43/1
    20.2 and it brings his downfall! Aims for a repeat dose but this time drives straight to cover. A little careless, if you are honest, because he had England at his mercy and a hundred on offer. 121/2

    28.4 through him! Bopara had just been starting to find some movement into Clarke, this time the Australian captain left a big gap as he drove and the ball snaked back to hit off stump. 172/3
