    25.5 touch shorter, tight line and Cook nicks off to first slip. It was probably wasn't quite there either to cut or drive but Cook, in a hurry now, had a go and Clarke clung on 126/3
    0.6 full and straight, Bell advances, clips off the pads straight to midwicket! Bailey takes it comfortably and that's a first failure for Bell in his latest incarnation as an opener. Slightly soft dismissal but an early wicket is just what Australia needed 5/1

    9.4 this one spins, beats Trott's sweep and bowls him! Clarke held it up a bit this time, Trott was through the shot and the ball gripped, straightened and rattled into the top of off. Nice bowling from the captain - if only he could trust the frontline left-arm spinner in his side to do the same! 34/2
