    13.2 the reverse sweep costs him his wicket, he's onto the shot too early and the ball doesn't spin too much and clips him low on the front pad, after a fairly prolonged appeal Asad Rauf is convinced, that had to have hit just the off stump, I'd like to see another replay of that. I think I saw an under edge, not the cleanest of dismissals 61/1
    22.3 that's another give-away I'm afraid, Johnson angles it across the right-hander from round the wicket and Denly shuffles right across and whips it high in the air over the on side, catching practice for Hussey running forward from deep square leg 105/3
    19.4 goes for the home run, gets a lot of elevation but not the desired distance, Bopara gets his front pad across and lofts across the line, Hauritz is there at deep square leg and he takes it comfortably 95/2
    33.3 gifts his wicket away, he comes down the pitch but Hauritz cleverly drops it short, the ball turns, grips and goes through the gate between bat and pad, Paine whips off the bails and Prior doesn't even bother to get back, didn't have to because he was a long way down 165/4
    38.1 tame again, the England batsmen don't seem to have a very long shelf life going by the evidence today, Johnson lands it outside off and gets it to straighten, Shah pokes at it and gets a thickish outside edge to Paine 192/5
    47.3 he goes for another reverse paddle, but this time he gets a top edge and Siddle gets under it at point 272/8
    41.6 his eventful cameo comes to an end, Watson changes the pace and Mascarenhas doesn't pick the slower one, he mows him across the line but finds Johnson at short midwicket 230/6
    46.6 that's a direct hit, Broad pushes it to mid-off and wants a single, Morgan hesitates but they go through with it and the direct hit by Ponting finds Broad short of his ground 267/7
    49.6 tries to cut a short delivery outside off but he misses, they attempt to steal a bye but Paine under-arms the ball onto the stumps with the batsman well short 299/10
    48.3 full outside off and Bresnan makes room and scoops it straight to Bracken at extra cover 278/9

    14.5 that's a poor shot, Bresnan bangs it in short of a length and gets it to hurry on Watson, he miscues the pull and the ball lands down Mascarenhas' throat at mid-on as he pedals backwards 76/2
    8.6 soft dismissal in the end, we've seen quite a few today, Bresnan digs it in quite short and gets it to come in with the angle, Paine fails to control the pull and ends up getting a top edge lobs to Rashid at short fine leg 45/1
    43.6 the extra delivery works in England's favour! Ponting tries to take him downtown, lofts from the crease and Shah runs across from long-off and takes it easily 261/6
    36.3 Clarke gives it away, he seizes on a shortish delivery down the leg side from round the wicket, he bends down and pulls but there isn't enough elevation to beat Shah at deep square leg 209/3
    39.3 another give-away and Hussey will be rather peeved with that shot, he checks his drive and ends up miscuing it tamely towards Sidebottom who takes the sitter at mid-off, Hussey was just too early on the shot 226/4
    43.3 that looked plumb, Ferguson shuffles across his stumps to work him across the line, he's trapped right in front of middle and leg, now is there a twist here? 255/5
