    23.1 Cook drives, gets a thickish edge and he's caught behind, England three down! Where did that come from? First Trott, now Cook, Southee strikes in consecutive overs, both times from a loose drive from England's too most choosy batsmen... Is the wobble on? 112/3
    6.3 Bell pulls aerially and it sails down the throat of deep square leg! That's a soft way to go, it was a back-of-a-length ball that didn't get up all that much, Bell swished across the line, seemed to take his bottom hand off in the process, and a top-edge flew high and not-so-handsome straight into the safe hands of Rutherford 42/1
    21.1 and there's an immediate breakthrough, Trott pushing indeterminately in the channel and thinning a catch through to Watling! He didn't really need to play at that delivery but, in his new-found spirit of enterprise, he tried to drive on the up and off he has to trot 109/2

    32.3 goes for the bouncer and Morgan clubs it out towards deep backward square leg, where Kyle Mills takes a magnificent leaping and manages to avoid stepping on the rope! Fine bit of work by the big man, who needed to be to pull that catch in 168/4
    33.2 another one down! Short again, this time Buttler has a crack at it but is late on the shot, it hits the splice and loops towards leg slip, where BJ Watling takes a diving catch, another excellent bit of work. That's three wickets for Southee but the dismissal was all about Watling scampering in like a golden retriever in pursuit of a stick to throw himself at full length under the ball 171/5
