    12.6 gone this time! It hasn't proved costly, though. Warner slices a short delivery flat out to deep cover where Hales held the catch coming in off the boundary 111/4
    1.2 swats across the line, top-edged and the ball loops tamely to mid-on! England have slain the beast! Everyone was expecting him to go after the bowlers again and Finch is always going to live and die by the sword. Although it was more like the pen knife this time... Maybe not quite short enough to pull and Broad gets him 8/1
    2.4 superb bit fielding from Morgan, a direct hit from backward point and Watson is gone for all money! He was sent back by Warner, never a run there, but Watson turned like a HGV backing up to a petrol pump, dived for the crease but Morgan's throw was on target, bouncing and shattering the stumps with the bat well short 15/2

    9.6 bowled him, hitting across the line again! Marsh maybe didn't need to go big again in that over but he was feeling the pressure - he missed and Root hit, England break the stand 82/3
    13.4 he gets one! Bailey misses his sweep and (umpire) Bailey gives the decision. Didn't look dead straight. Well, that was dead straight. Hawk Eye shows hitting middle and leg full on. 113/5
    17.2 that's the end of his fun. He flicks a low full toss straight down the throat of deep square-leg who barely had to take a step either way 148/7
    15.1 and another...round the wicket, a quicker delivery skids through and beats Wade's attempt at a pull 123/6
    17.3 what a catch! Superb from Morgan at backward point. It was a very sharp bouncer, Faulkner was in a horrid tangle as he tried to pull. Comes off the shoulder of the bat and it appeared it would fly just over Morgan, but he turned then pulled out a big leap to hold the catch 148/8

    18.5 the short ball works, down at 75mph, and it takes the top edge to short fine-leg...Finn came back very well after those two sixes 162/9
