    0.1 swinging into the left-hander, a little dibbly dobbler raps Butt on the pads who gets too far across, a huge and throaty appeal from Hoggard and Simon Taufel gives him. Oooh, very, very tight decision. Replays suggest it just clipped the leg stump. Brilliant start for England 0/1
    12.3 Hoggard angles that at the lefthander who can only fend a tihick edge into Collingwood’s reliable hands at third slip. High fives and hugs all round for England - that's a massive boon for them just before lunch 33/2
    43.4 gone, Monty strikes again! There was big turn off the bat as the batsman presses forward to defend and a thick outside edge flies low to Cook at second slip, who grips on with one hand 141/4
    35.5 great ball, Monty has the breakthrough! The change back to the Nursery End has done the trick. Pitches on leg and it spins a touch and would have gone on to hit middle-and-off. Panesar bounces up and down, skipping like it’s the first day of spring. Or something. 116/3
