    12.5 full and straight, wraps Carberry on the pads, huge cry for lbw, not out given but Clarke goes for the review. I reckon this is a good effort, Carberry got a long way down the pitch but it did look straight as he missed playing across it. No mark on Hot Spot and Hawk Eye has it crashing into middle stump, good review and Carberry is gone. He tried to shuffle across and create some angle for himself but missed. That he was down the track and possibly outside the line created enough doubt for Rob Bailey but the review proved it was a good shout 50/2
    0.4 forward just outside off, comes off the pad, cry for lbw, was outside the line, it runs past Matthew Wade and Carberry sprints through for a leg bye, Pietersen is very slow taking off and is well short of his ground as the throw comes into the bowler's end. Another calamitous run out involving these two and Pietersen is gone for a duck! Just what Australia wanted 1/1
    15.5 full and wide of off stump, Root pokes at it without moving his feet and gets a thick inside edge onto his middle stump and that ends a very average innings from Root, he's looked rather out of touch today and played a poor stroke there. On a better day that would have been driven handsomely through the covers but a tentative prod has seen a thick inside edge smash into middle stump 64/3
    25.1 slides the ball across the advancing Morgan and Wade completes a simple stumping! Big wicket for Voges, that could well be the game. The bowler maybe saw him coming, Voges tossed it a little wider, beat the outside edge and the rest is a Michael Jackson LP 103/5
    16.5 drops one short, there's a direct hit... and Wright is run out, brilliant bit of work from Bailey! Wright is guilty of ball watching here, Bailey swooped in from the covers, threw on the move, only a stump and a half to aim at but the contact is just enough to nudge the bails off and Wright didn't run his bat in. If he has, it would have been mighty close 68/4
    39.1 steps to leg and slaps straight to extra cover and now England are dead. Bopara nailed it, creamed it right out of the meat of the bat but couldn't evade extra-cover who's taken a very sharp chance at head height with two hands, a cold night is not the time for those chances but that was very well held. Bopara can't believe it because he couldn't have timed that any better but he's got to go and two wickets at the start of spells have killed any hope England still had 197/7
    38.1 full and straight through him stumps parted and a killer blow for England, think Buttler just played around one, done by the angle perhaps. It was around the wicket from Faulkner, angled in to the stumps and Buttler tried to swing it down the ground and missed, is that England's last chance walking off? 195/6
    46.5 tries the ramp, it was another excellent yorker, it was a little too far outside off, tried to steer it over the off side in the end but just ended up chipping a catch to Clarke who pouched the simplest of chances gleefully 240/9
    45.6 swung over the leg side, big stroke but not big enough and George Bailey, who has enjoyed an outstanding day in the field, has taken the catch a yard inside the boundary. It sounded, and looked, a pretty good slug from Jordan but they're pretty decent boundaries at the Ageas and that needed a bit more tap 236/8
    not out
    47.6 not that it matter because Rankin has swung and missed at the next delivery, lost his off stump and that's the game. Ahmed take the final wicket with a floaty legspinner that Rankin swung across and missed completely 249/10
