    6.1 goddim this time! Good, straight delivery which How nudges to short-leg's right who leaps up to take a relatively facile catch 18/1
    32.1 goddim! A good line just outside the off stump, he nibbled at it - as he has been doing all morning - and sent a thick edge through to Ambrose who took it diving to his right 69/2

    32.5 he's bowled him! A wonderful delivery on off stump, just cutting back onto Fleming who shouldered arms and the ball clipped the top of his off stump 70/3
    50.1 gone! strikes with his first ball after tea as Sinclair slaps a short wide ball straight to Ian Bell at cover. England have caught one and that's a real give away from Sinclair 151/4
    56.3 swinging into Taylor's middle stump and that's absolutely plumb, hitting Taylor halfway up 173/5
    80.5 gone! that's a huge breakthrough late in the day and how Sidebottom deserved it. Full swinging ball outside off stump, draws a loose drive from Oram and taken by Pietersen at a second gully...the new ball has worked 242/6
    100.3 two steps down the track, he shapes to slam the ball over long-on but not enough elevation and Sidebottom, a few yards in from the rope, just waits and pouches a straightforward catch before setting off on a victory jog 311/10
    82.6 gone! That's the start England needed. Short of a length and just moving away from Vettori who pushed at it away from his body, the ball flying to Cook's right who took a safe catch at third slip 246/7
    88.5 gone this time! Swinging into his pads and rapped on the knee roll and that's Sidebottom's fifth wicket 270/8
    99.6 it's been coming ... Anderson produces another probing delivery on off stump, Gillespie plays a leaden-footed poke and Ambrose holds a thin but very distinct nick 311/9
