    5.4 full on the stumps, Hales aims a big swing towards the leg side and gets a huge top edge that swirls down to third man and Starc holds the chance very well. That hung in the air for a long time but Starc steadied himself just inside the boundary and took it down to his left with two hands 42/3
    3.2 full length on off stump, Lumb tries to heave over the leg side but puts it straight up in the air and mid-on takes a solid catch. Lively from Lumb but he's totally miscued that trying to pick a ball up over the leg side 24/1
    4.2 full length wide of off stump again, Wright smashes it into the off side and Hodge takes a blinding catch diving down to his right, fabulous take and Wright fails again, nailed the stroke but a foot off the ground was enough for Hodge 30/2
    8.3 forward pushing into midwicket and they charge back for the second, Maxwell charges in and returns a super throw and Root has to dive into the non-striker's end and it short of his ground! What superb fielding. Looked for all money that an easy two was on but Maxwell covered the ground so quickly, dived to field and threw almost in one motion, right on target and White dashed the stumps down 63/5
    6.6 the same stroke but this time they take on extra-cover and a direct hit has Morgan struggling diving into the striker's end. His bat is well over the line but it's bounced in the air, are his gloves back in time? I don't think they are and indeed he's gone. Very unlucky that is for Morgan, the bat bounced up and all the way to the top of the handle was in the air as he crossed the whitewash. Top work from Hodge having run to his left 55/4
    15.1 pitched up, shaping in and that's out! Buttler didn't move his feet, think Coulter-Nile just cut his fingers over the ball and it was a pretty straight forward decision 96/7
    12.2 on the stumps, Bopara reaches for the slog-sweep... and he's picked out deep midwicket! Good bit of bowling from Muirhead again, think it dipped on Bopara, who wasn't able to control the shot, sent it flat and at a comfortable height to the man 87/6
    19.5 bowled him, via his legs! Bresnan tried to get cute, stepping outside off and attempting to dab the ball fine on the leg side, failed to connect with the bat and it clipped his back leg before ricocheting into the stumps 130/8

    19.6 timber! Hazlewood has four! Full and straight does for Tredwell, who tried to launch his first ball down the ground and missed it completely. The stumps are a mess and so is this England innings 130/9

    5.1 full delivery, Finch tries to play to leg and it hurries onto him slightly, struck on the pad and given out lbw! Seemed to strike him relatively high on the pad, but, no, knee roll and it was pretty straight too so a fair call on first look. I think Finch might have been forward, caught on the crease somewhat. But Hawk Eye has the ball going over the top so the batsman a little unlucky 48/1
    6.5 length ball, Maxwell steps inside it and swings into the leg side, Bresnan is out at deep-backward square and takes the catch running to his right. More mindless batting from Maxwell, nowhere near the elevation needed on that stroke and he holes out in the deep 53/2
