    93.3 he's got him! A cracking delivery which cut back into Cook, bouncing nastily on him and a thick outside edge handed Jayawardene a simple catch behind the stumps 250/6
    19.6 and the breakthrough, Vaughan flashes at a ball well outside off stump and Jayawardene at second slip takes a good chest-high catch 67/1
    42.1 bowled him! Not a lot he could do about that - he was on the back foot, the ball spun back sharply and shot off the pitch to knock over his off stump. Kept very low indeed, creeping under Bell's bat 128/2
    64.3 and what a lazy dismissal, a half volley clipped straight to short midwicket 200/3
    64.5 and it's two in three, Collingwood is completely undone by the doosra, he lurches forward, misses, overbalances, and Jayawardene completes the stumping with Collingwood stranded 200/4
    64.6 madness, utter madness from the batsman but some brilliant fielding. Bopara edges along the ground to the right of Jayawardene at slip, Bopara thinks it's past him and sets off down the track, but Jayawardene picks up and fires in a return to his namesake who whips off the bail with Bopara short despite a desperate dive 200/5
