    31.6 Breakthrough! full length delivery angled in, Trescothick move across a long way exposing the stumps and goes for the sweep, gets beaten by the full length and ball hits the leg stump, ambitious shot from Trescothick brings his downfall! 138/5
    8.1 and he strikes first ball! short of a good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, for a change the ball kept a touch low after hitting the deck, Strauss swings across the line and is beaten by the lack of bounce, ball clips the bottom edge and goes behind, Sangakkara dives across to his right and takes a good low catch. England one down 31/1
    10.3 got'm! short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, nipped in a touch, apart from that it was a fairly harmless delivery, Bell drives away from his body, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps - England two down and in a spot of bother here 44/2
    15.1 good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Pietersen walks across and flicks it away in the air towards the midwicket region, Jayawardene there times his jump to perfection and plucks it out of thin air, an amazing one-handed effort 65/3
    16.3 short of length delivery just outside off stump, nipping in off the wicket, Collingwood moves back to defend and is beaten for pace, ball hits him on the knee roll and he is trapped plumb in front, Collingwood beaten by the sharp movement and also by pace 66/4
    46.3 England's slump continues! flatter trajectory, pitched outside the off stump and turning in, Dalrymple goes down on one knee in an attempt to slog it over the midwicket fence but is bit early into the shot and the ball crashes into the stumps, the ball nicely gripped the surface and turned in slowly and Dalrymple was beaten by the lack of pace there , end of a good innings from the debutant 214/8
    39.2 another nail goes in! short ball on the stumps and Jones pulls it away towards deep midwicket, Kapugedera moves across quickly to his left and snaffles it cleanly, deliberately took on the fielder in the deep. 172/6
    45.3 fulltoss on the stumps, Bresnan swing across the line, misses the target by a long way and the ball hits the base of the middle stump, crucial wicket this! 208/7
    47.5 good length delivery, nothing special there, just a wicket to wicket delivery, Mahmood comes down the track and has a wild swing at it, a typical tail-enders slog, short story shorter - Mahmood misses and Malinga hits, as simple as that 220/9
