    1.2 length ball just outside off, Warner throws the kitchen sink at it and loses it bat! The bat flies away into the leg side, where has the ball gone? It's gone straight up and Buttler goes across to take the skier. They check the no ball, Broad is always close right on the line this is mighty tight and Broad is just about okay but that was exceptionally tight 11/1

    17.2 slower ball, Finch backs to leg, swings square and drags it onto middle stump ending a truly spectacular innings. That was a marvellous display of hitting and he falls trying to swing away another but got off balance going towards square leg and the change of pace deceived him 226/3
    10.3 Marsh tries to follow his partner, looking to clear the leg side, doesn't get it at all, it goes straight up and Lumb runs in from long-on and takes the catch. A good grab running in, plenty of ground to make up there and Lumb claimed it welll 125/2
    17.4 fabulous slower ball, Watson totally sold down the river and loses his leg stump. Classic Dernbach, back of the hand change up, Watson aimed to leg but knew he was through with the shot far too soon and the ball cannoned into the base of leg stump, Watson already walking back to the hutch 227/4
    19.1 full and straight, Maxwell misses and Dernbach takes out his off stump, Dernback picking up a few late wickets here. Simple modus operandi there, quick delivery from slightly wide on the crease angled into the stumps and I did warn the Aussies about missing straight balls 242/6
    18.1 full on the stumps, Bailey tried to tickle it into the leg side, missed and it given out lbw straight by the umpire. Bailey got across his stumps and try to flick a full delivery towards midwicket but he missed and when you're in front of all three it ain't a good idea to be missing the ball 228/5

    2.6 quick, on off stump, Lumb plays across the line and misses this time - that's lbw. Johnson gets a measure of revenge, sneaking the ball through Lumb, skidding on and would have clattered the timber 33/1
    3.1 top-edged, the ball goes high towards square leg, there's almost a mix up between Matt Wade and the Fawad Ahmed but it's safely taken! Australia have two in two balls, Hales perishing in pursuit of the impossible quick runs 33/2
    3.3 tries to dab the ball from the crease, did he get a tickle on that? Umpire Tim Robinson thinks so, though Wright is not happy at having to go. He was just trying to run one down to third man, maybe a faint sound as it went through 37/3
    4.3 reaches for the drive, quite a wide delivery and he connects well but the ball sails straight to the man at cover point! Johnson is off and running in celebration, Maxwell didn't even have to move. England have got vertigo 42/4

    13.4 dug in short, Bopara pulls and splices to midwicket! This time he will be out! Bopara pulled merrily, come high off the bat and dropped into the mitts of the Warner, who gets his man 137/5
    19.3 gone, leg stump out of the ground! Good follow up from Faulkner, full and fast and Buttler is castled attempting to slog 203/6
