    2.3 pitched up and swerving back late at Cook, who's rapped on the front pad - Hill raises his finger and Australia are jubilant! Cook calls for a review but replays show it was extremely optimistic, maybe he was convinced there was an inside edge involved after hitting his toe, but there's a big gap between bat and ball and Hawk-Eye says it pitched in line with middle and off, straightened and would have crashed into the stumps halfway up. That is a huge opening statement from Ryan Harris - England have lost their captain, one of their two reviews, and maybe a finger on the urn, too 0/1

    12.2 strangled down the leg side, Harris and Australia have another! Trott's head fell to the off side as he walked across his stumps, trying to flick off his pads, just a thin tickle and Hill gives it, Trott is shaking his head but only at himself... He stalks off and England are right in the muck now, two down and the only dark clouds above them metaphorical ones 15/2
    16.2 pitched up and Pietersen is driving, beats the bat, Haddin is up on his toes, arms in the air, Siddle less sure but Hill gives it! Pietersen looks baffled, even hurt and calls for the review ... Here we go, then: there's maybe a faint sound as the ball passes the bat, no visible edge; Hot Spot shows nothing ... and Dharmasena again decides there's not enough grounds to overturn the on-field call, so Hill's finger is raised once more! Pietersen looks furious as he marches off; the soup has just got thicker 27/3
