    5 forward defensive, seaming in, into the pad, big appeal, up goes the finger, out goes Gayle 6/1
    11.5 oh dear, no shot offered whatsoever, bat held high, into the back leg, Hair gives it out 20/2
    32 good length, good line, Lara pushing at it tenatively, edges, and bang into the hands of the gully 88/3
    57.4 that'll do nicely - this time it is Sarwan (full marks if you noticed the goof) - good length, loose stroke, regulation slip catch for Flintoff 167/4
    67.5 Thorpe delivers a lesson in how to take slip catches. Loose shot, easy catch. Pay attention, Mark. 198/7
    61.5 another bouncer, Hinds feeling man enough to hook, and Jones at long leg is there and waiting as it comes high off the bat. 179/5
    67.2 gets big on him, tries to fend away, gets a glove, almost punches it toward Collingwood at gully who makes a fine diving take coming forward. 197/6
    75.1 dug in short, gloves him, Mark Butcher puts his recent slipcatching lessons to good use as this one loops up to him, and sinks into his no doubt somewhat grateful hands. 224/9
    71 not that it's going to matter much: good line and length, Collins hangs the bat out to dry outside off stump, and Trescothick takes the easiest of catches at first slip 208/8

    4.2 quick, straight, inside edge, crunch. Timber falls, and Trescothick's off on that long lonely walk. 8/1
    22 nibbles at this, Jacobs jumps up and gathers 33/3
    15.1 nibbles at this and Chris Gayle gobbles this up 24/2

    44 back of a length, gets back and punches to cover, not over it, playing well ahead of the body, easy catch 90/5
    54 just on the off, cuts back, traps him on the pad, was it on line, was it too high, Hawke eye says no, Koertzen says yes 119/6
    61.2 outside off, angled across, flashes at it, sub takes at 3rd slip 147/7
    63.5 set him up outside off, gets one to come back, pitches middle, would have taken leg stump 155/8
    78 superb superb reflexes from Sarwan at short leg. Right out of the middle of the bat, straight at his face, Sarwan's hands go up and it sticks. 187/9
    90 which is more than can be said for that one. Pretty much the same ball, and he gets nowhere near it. 226/10

    14.2 got'im! good length delivery outside the off stump, Ganga pushes at it and gets a thick edge, simple catch for Thorpe at third slip, Ganga finally falls, Hoggard rewarded for some excellent bowling 34/2

    23.5 another nail goes in! another sharp bouncer on the middle and off, this time Jacobs pushes at it, ball hits the gloves and goes straight to Butcher at gully, simple catch, Flintoff gets one to his name, three day test?! 48/6
    35.5 edged straight to first slip with the first ball after the stoppage 80/7
    38 turned into the on-side and they run a quick single, Hussain underarms the ball at the stumps at the bowlers end, is Collins in? TV replay called for.. 81/7
