    36.6 got him this time, edged and taken at first slip! But is it a no-ball? They check the replays and it's very tight... There's probably a scrap of trouser leg behind the line (maybe some boot rubber too) and the third umpire decides it's okay. Fulton has been dabbling unnecessarily outside off all over and this time he pays for it, similar to his first-innings dismissal, little foot movement and a straightforward slip catch at waist height 81/2
    10.3 and he immediately takes a brilliant diving catch, a perfect fielding change brings England the breakthrough! Rutherford stayed back and seemed powerless to direct anywhere else, scraped the edge and may have deflected off the thigh as well but it was still travelling and Bell had to throw himself low to his right to take a one-handed blinder, right up there in the Collingwood league 25/1
