6.10pm Welcome back to the run-chase. Watling opening up with Guptill as Jimmy Anderson takes the new ball

And here's Tim on the DRS: "I dont understand the arguments about the review system. it both makes sense and is good. the point of it is Not to just reverse all bad decisions: there should be an element of chance and risk and human error, otherwise we might as well be playing computer games. the point is to provide the captains a way of challenging an umpires decision if THEY think the umpire got it wrong. one would expect this would remove certainly some errors that are made, but its not designed to remove 100% of errors. the batsman who knows they didnt knick the ball but were given out caught behind should be able to challenge, unless of course their captain made a bad call at another time during the match, and there is nothing wrong with that. the captain just has to assume the responsibility, rather than blaming the system for not being able to make more challenges."

Anderson to Watling, OUT, ripping delivery from England's premier pacer! Watling looks to drive a full length delivery which pitched just outside off, but didn't account for the rapid off-cut which blasts its way through Watling's defences and into the stumps as the bails go flying

Utkarsh: "Most underrated players of our generation- my number 1 would be Jimmy Anderson."

Dominic (KiwiEnglishFan): "The commentators were a tad concerned that Anderson's extended rest might have him a bit rusty... Seems to have done him the world of good. What a glorious bowler to watch when his rhythm is right and his pace is high!"
