    20.6 Lord's falls quiet as Cook chases one outside off and nicks off. Cummins has his first international wicket against England (the first of many?) and Australia's bowlers are finally getting the rewards for their disciplined approach 89/2

    16.6 oh no, Bell MK II suffers a familiar glitch, hit in front of off and he has to go, no matter how attractive his 41 was! It was another testing ball from Lee, nipping back just a shade and Bell tried to drive back down the pitch, looked like a good call from Aleem Dar and the batsman decides against reviewing 74/1

    40.1 tossed up on leg stump and bowled him! Trott simply missed with an attempted glance through the on side, almost yorking himself as the ball dipped and slipped under the bat to break the wicket 189/4
    28.1 gone! Strikes first ball with a lovely delivery. Squared up Bopara on off stump and the edge flies comfortably to Michael Clarke at slip who is rewarded for still attacking 121/3

    49.6 length ball, Kieswetter hits on the up but it goes straight up, long-off comes scampering in from the boundary and takes a well-judged diving catch 272/5

    5.4 cry for caught behind as Watson looked to back-cut, given not out and England, who were convinced, refer this, there's a noise...and a mark on Hot Spot, this is going to be out and indeed up goes the finger. Watson stood still and tried to angle the ball away and got a thin nick through. England knew straight away, Aleem Dar perhaps couldn't hear the nick because of the wind but DRS again shows its worth 20/1
    20.2 edged and that's a fantastic snag behind the stumps! Anderson pitched it up, having pushed Warner back, enticed him to drive and a thick edge flew towards first slip (which was vacant), meaning Kieswetter had to launch himself horizontally to grasp the ball. Warner, the danger man, is gone ... Is that a game changer? 102/3
    18.6 that will make him feel better! Bailey chops into his stumps. Was too close to guide down to third man and takes a bottom edge into the wood work. 96/2
    42.6 got him this time! A similar delivery to earlier in the over but this is much straight and up goes the finger! Bang in front this is, he swings across it and caught plumb in front, game over now is it? 214/7

    29.1 bumper, Hussey gets in a tangle, the ball hits him on the helmet ... and drops on to the stumps! Strange dismissal, that, Hussey mistimed his pull completely, was hit on the shoudler, then the helmet, the ball finally plopping on to the wicket 132/4
    32.5 length ball, in the corridor and Smith fences weakly at it, nicking through to the keeper! That won't convince the doubters, pushing away from his body, perhaps trying to guide the ball to third man ... but failing 147/5
    41.5 played into the leg side, oh and there's a huge mix up and Wade is run out! Clarke wanted the run, Wade did not but eventually had to go to save his skipper and was easily run out at the non-striker's end, disaster for Australia 204/6

    45.1 down the pitch, straight up and caught by Kieswetter. McKay went for a leg side heave to a back of a length ball that he tried to step down the track to but it just went up and the keeper went to his left to take it with both hands easily 226/8
    45.6 gone! It looked stone dead, missed a full ball that beat the inside edge, he refers it but this is just out and indeed Hawk Eye confirms as such, that was a ridiculous referral! Right in front on the back pad, if that ain't out, nowt is 231/9
