    7.2 edged and Warner is gone! That is a superb delivery from Wood, inch-perfect line, kicking off the deck and nibbling half-a-bat's width away from the left-hander! He was just beginning to find his range, but Australia's danger man is extracted in his prime 40/1
    22.5 Finch misfires! Just as he was beginning to look very dangerous, he tried to launch Stokes into West Bromwich and ended up hitting the ball straight up, to be taken smartly by Morgan circling under it from mid-off. Came right off the toe of the bat, maybe deceived by a legcutter from Stokes 136/2
    32.1 gottim, plinked to mid-off! Huge wicket for England, Smith hangs his head in disgust, a really soft way to go, maybe he was expecting something quicker to start off with but instead wafts at an 85mph loosener and sends it looping slowly, tantalisingly, irresistibly to the man on the edge of the ring 181/4
    27.4 gone, slogged to mid-on! He's played a few impressive strokes - but that won't go down as one of them. Might have been the googly from Rashid but, either way, Henriques wasn't to the pitch trying to hit down the ground and it screwed off the inside half of the bat, looping tamely to mid-on 161/3

    42.3 caught in the deep! Brilliant from Roy! Short ball from Wood, hit hard and flat, it's six all the way, but round swoops Roy, plucking the ball above his head, foot a millimetre from the line, then in that now-typical-but-still-awesome manner, tosses the ball up as his momentum takes him over, then gathering when back in play. Stunning. The umpires are checking, but this looks clean... Roy certainly thought so, and so does the third umpire! 239/5
    43.3 googly! Wades reads it about as well as I can read Hindi. Three fielders converge but Rashid calls for his own catch as the ball loops straight up in the air, and England are really taking control in the slog-overs now 245/6
    43.6 that's terrible! An attempted googly, comes out as a leg-stump full toss, Starc slaps across the line as if substituting his bat for a damp tuna-fish, and up loops another facile catch, this time for Root behind the stumps! 245/7
    45.6 too easy for Rashid, who finishes his spell with a four-for! A lollipop push straight back to the bowler, neither forward nor back, and utterly unsure of which direction that would spin. England are rampant! 253/8
    46.4 full toss, and bowled! Zampa didn't fancy staying in line one little bit, gave himself room, and was in no position to protect his timbers as Wood splattered his off pole! 254/9

    0.2 struck in front, Roy in a tangle... and after an age to think about it, Kumar Dharmasena raises his finger! Roy doesn't consult with his partner but quickly requests a review, but straight away this looks optimistic; no bat, hit on the knee, did it pitch outside leg? NO! Another single-figure score for Roy, his horror run continues and Starc makes an immediate incision into the England batting. GAME ON!! 4/1
    1.2 got him, nicked to slip! Hazlewood finds the perfect either-or length, hits the seam around off stump and Hales is frozen in position as he pushes tentatively, gets a big, thick edge and it loops to first where Finch clasps it low down 6/2
    5.4 gone, the outside edge this time snapped up by Wade! Another big breakthrough, Hazlewood clenches his fists as Root departs, more excellent line bowling and it nipped to kiss the edge, a simple catch for the keeper this time 35/3
    31.5 there's the disruption! A chip in the air from Stokes, inches short of midwicket. Morgan is ball-watching as Stokes hurtles for a single, and that's an immense direct hit shy from Zampa with the skipper stranded! 194/4
