    35.1 oh dear, another tame dismissal and a horrible shot - aiming to reverse sweep that, misses the ball completely the ball clips off stump 160/3
    19.6 and there you go. Once again Vaughan falls when he's well placed. Cleverly bowled, holding it back a touch and he slaps it straight to backward point 101/1
    33.2 that dismissal was softer than a pack of extra-soft marshmallows: Bell going for the slog sweep and sending it high and straight down short third man's throat - not literally, as that would have been painful, but you get the idea 153/2
    35.6 soft, softer, softest. Pietersen pops the ball back to the bowler, simple as that. A big blow for England, of course, not to mention the crowd. 161/4

    46.5 horrible shot, attempted reverse sweep, missed it totally and there goes his off stump - Bopara showing all of the sticks, there 242/5
    47.4 oh dear - fishing at a very wide one with a premeditated sweep looking to paddle it fine, but made a late decision to try to dink it late to third man and sent it straight to the keeper instead 245/6

    10.3 gone this time. He absolutely middled it, almost too well, smacking it aerially and straight to Ian Bell at deep extra cover 51/3
    1.3 bowled him neck and crop there, the batsman shouldering arms to one which nipped back in off the seam and that's a dreadful misjudgement 8/1
    5.1 gone this time. Like Anderson's ball in the over before, it was short but too straight to be uppercutting and he picked out third man 22/2
    16.6 a jaffa! Just a touch shorter, cutting away from Billcliff's tentative forward defence and the off-stump was sent back 65/4

    35.1 and Panesar has struck now, that ball angling into the righthander, looking to whip that into the on-side 161/6
    34.4 gone! Got him! A threatening innings comes to an add with an impetuous waft 161/5

    47.3 worked off the legs and there's a huge call for a run out at the non-striker's end. England think they've got their man, with a throw on the knees from Bopara and Collingwood does the rest 217/7
