    23.3 strange stumping, beats him with a straighter ball outside off, extra bounce, Ramdin takes a lot of time to bring it back and remove the bail, but Strauss's foot is stuck on the line, he didn't seem to know he had dragged it onto the line, good bowling to start it off though 129/2
    14.6 he misses the 50, lack of pace does him in, it's back of a length, outside off, moving in, he is too early into his forward defensive, gets a bottom edge onto the pad, and the ball rolls through to the stumps 81/1
    45.3 Prior slogs, misses, and Taylor hits. Simple dismissal. Full and straight, and another England batsman misses out on a hundred. In fact he gets out on the Aussie devil's number 289/5
    43.6 slog-sweep off a fast bowler, and he doesn't quite get enough on it, it was wide outside off, so he had to drag it, and perhaps that's why didn't get enough to clear deep midwicket. There was a century in sight, but well played Owais 278/3
    44.2 gone first ball, carries with him the IPL golden-duck flu, length ball, on off stump, is way too early into the shot, and an easy catch for Pollard, maybe he was surprised by the slowness of the pitch, but after 40 overs of watching should have known better 279/4
    47.4 finally Taylor goes full and straight, Collingwood makes room, tries a hard hit, misses, the leg stump is out of the ground. Makes you wonder why he has been trying those limp bouncers 308/6

    2.2 soft, really soft, he has been waiting for anything short, but this one is on the stumps, he goes for the pull, hits him high on the bat, and a dolly offered to Bopara at mid-on 13/1
    15.2 and Morton is run out again! The Shiv and Runako band has given us another symphony. He had punched this powerfully off the back foot, wide of sweeper-cover, he wants two, Shiv never wanted it, the hand is up immediately, but Morton keeps running, maybe not expecting the throw to come his end, but Collingwood goes non-striker's end, on the top of stumps, and finds Morton short 66/3
    3.1 lovely catch from Strauss, length ball, outside off, Sarwan goes for the drive, stops a bit, flying to the left of cover, and Strauss sticks out his left hand, and takes it cleanly 22/2
    37.4 and immediately he goes, full, outside off, he drags it from there, goes to beat midwicket, and gives Bopara a sitter. Chanderpaul had to work hard for his runs, but not enough intent in his innings, one feels 181/5
    22.1 and gets Bravo with the second, big big wicket. Back of a length, jagging in from outside off, Bravo steps across, misses, is hit in front of middle and leg (more leg than middle), is given, seeming to go down the leg side 99/4
    38.4 game, set, match, slower bouncer, cuts in, Ramdin cuts hard, gets a thick edge, Prior takes it one-handed 189/6
    41 bowls a big wide down the leg side, and hang on, a bizarre dismissal, Pollard wants one on a fumble, but is sent back by Taylor, Pollard dives in to make it in, but when the hand hits the ground, the bat goes up in the air, and immediately then Prior's throw hits the stumps 212/7
    42.6 another run-out, good length, gets a thick edge towards point, Strauss fields, looks up and sees a mid-pitch confusion and Taylor has to hurry back towards the none-striker's end, the throw is good, on the bounce and he is found short. Lots of yesses and nos in this one 223/8
