    2.5 that's all for Strauss, Lee gets his man! Another flat-footed swipe outside off stump, finds a thickish edge that Haddin gleefully collects. It was short and wide but not for the first time today Strauss missed the cut shot he normally nails 23/1
    22.1 caught! Prior's cut one straight to point. The length was good and the line was outside off. Prior went back into his crease to cut, and found Doherty. That spun and bounced a touch and it hit the top edge 136/2

    39.4 Hussey gets the breakthrough! Plenty of turn here for him, comes in a long way and cramped Trott as he tried to cut, took the bottom edge and cannoned onto middle stump. Excellent breakthrough to end a fine innings 224/5
    26.3 caught at long-on! The fielder was back on the boundary this time, but Pietersen went after Smith anyway. He came forward, got under the ball and hoisted it towards the boundary. Not enough distance on it though and Marsh ran in a few paces to take a simple catch 158/3
    26.5 and he's been caught as well! Bell took two steps out of his crease to play the ball, Smith beat him in the flight and the ball pitched short of the batsman, Bell tried to readjust to dab the ball towards the off side but got a thick edge through to Haddin. Haddin almost wanted to complete the stumping as well, before realizing that Bell had edged it. 158/4
    41.1 Hussey gets his second! Morgan's reverse-sweep was timed well but straight to point, who jumped high to take the chance above his head. Wickets falling at ideal time and England are in danger of having the tail in for the Powerplay 227/6
    47.6 Collingwood tries to repeat the sweep/heave that got the boundary earlier, this time he timed it too well and it went straight to White who made no mistake this time. Ends an ugly innings but at least it showed signs of form 283/7

    49.3 Hussey gets another! What figures he has. Shahzad mistimes a full toss and it loops to midwicket who takes a very gentle chance 294/8

    23.6 massive wicket! Too wide to take on, and Watson's airy swish takes a thin top edge to Prior. Now England are in the driving seat 116/4
    5.4 caught! Haddin has spooned one to cover. It was the slower one from Tremlett and it nipped into Haddin, who was early on the drive. He went hard at the ball and hit it at a nice, easy height to Strauss at cover 32/1
    6.5 caught and bowled! Anderson was testing Marsh with this angle into the left-hander from round the wicket. He was attacking the stumps constantly and not giving the batsman room. Marsh pushed a bit more at this one, the ball hit the bat a little low and went straight back to the bowler. Caught and bowled chances are rarely easy, but this one was. 33/2
    16.6 cracking delivery! That one burst off the seam, nipped through the gate, and flicked the top of middle stump! Great stuff from Colly, who is justifying his place in the side once again ... 87/3
    38.5 caught! And that might be it. White decided Trott had to go and muscled a length ball towards long-on. White had to create all the pace because Trott was giving him nothing to work with and he didn't hit it well enough. Yardy ran in from the boundary and held the catch. 199/6
    34.5 Trott does the trick! After taking single after single, Hussey tries to beat long-off, he couldn't and ended up lofting a simple catch 176/5

    39.6 well Strauss has caught Hastings now! Hastings had moved towards leg to make a bit of room, Anderson followed him with a shorter ball. Hastings was cramped but tried to pull it, the ball hit the top edge and lobbed up towards the leg side. Strauss took a dolly. 201/7
