    3.6 and the delay works in England's favour! Mahmood angles it into Gilchrist from round the wicket, Gilchrist plays outside the line and the ball goes through a huge gap between bat and pad and uproots off stump 30/1
    6.4 and we have a game on! Banged in short, Watson tries to pull but the ball keeps low and crashes into the stumps 34/3
    5.6 and England have their second wicket! Strauss takes a splendid catch at first slip. Ponting drives hard at the ball but a hint of outswing induces a thick edge, Strauss moves low to his right and even though the ball didn't nestle in his palms, he managed to cup it to his chest to complete a safe catch 34/2
    34.1 Finally, after bowling lots of trash, Harmison gets one to kick up from short of length. Martyn tries to help it on his way but nicks it to Read. 152/4
