    19.5 angled in with the arm and Cook misses playing across his front leg, Faulkner has got him! He thinks about reviewing but Trott counsels against, correctly, it turns out, as Hawk-Eye suggests the ball, which hit the pad in front of middle, would have gone on to hit two thirds up between middle and leg stump 86/2
    4.5 wide and tempting, Root swipes and nicks off - Haddin takes it and that's the record! Harris makes the breakthrough, he's bowled better balls that haven't got him a wicket but Root, trying to crack on, had a flash, got a thin top edge and the ball was safely pouched by a man who's had a superb series behind the stumps 22/1
    35.3 that's plumb! Faulkner holds his nerve and gets Trott lbw as he shuffled across his crease and missed. He called for the review but he was hit in line and it was hitting leg 170/4
    34.1 gone! Harris strikes first ball. Pietersen launches a length ball over the leg side, but finds long-on. To start with it looked as though Pietersen had middle it but Warner made excellent ground to his right and held the catch comfortably 163/3
    39.6 superb from Starc! Bell drilled it back down the pitch to him, Starc stook his foot out then collected the ball and hurled it back to run him out 206/5
