18.5 a tame end ... Porterfield looked to whip the ball through midwicket, but only got a thick leading edge and the ball ever so gently looped up to short extra cover 72/3
    0.5 but Anderson corrects his line this time, and Bray's loose drive hands Bopara a catch - a fine catch indeed as Bray slashed Anderson, hard, to him in the gully 6/1
    3.4 oh and he's hit him on the body, the ball bobbling to leg - but here comes Mahmood, racing down the pitch in about two-and-a-half strides, picking it up and reverse-flicking the ball onto the stumps. Superb piece of fielding and replays show he's an inch short 11/2
    36.2 lovely bowling, O'Brien deceived by a beautifully flighted delivery and left stranded, Nixon whips off the bails and Vaughan has a grin bigger than the Cheshire Cat. O'Brien played a super little knock, and a disappointing end getting out to what amounts to a part-time bowler 139/6
    29.5 slog-swept, but it's top-edged and skied to Flintoff at mid-on who has to jog in about five metres, sliding down on his knees to take it grass-level 116/4
    35.6 rapped on his pads but it's drifting down....no it's not, he's out! Taufel has raised his finger. 139/5
    44.5 full, Johnston aims a wild swing over midwicket, misses, and the ball clatters his leg stump 197/7
    45.5 White tries to paddle the ball round to leg, Collingwood bowls wide outside off stump and there is no way the batsman can scoop it round from there, it lobs off the face of the bat high into the air and Nixon runs ten yards back to take the simplest of catches 209/8
    48.1 another well-directed yorker, through a indecisive swish, and the leg stump is sent spinning 218/10
    46.1 super yorker-length delivery, the bat comes down just in time and the ball squirts away fine on the off side ... Flintoff and Nixon appeal and the umpire gives it out. I would like to see that again ... well, the replay looks for all the world that the ball came off the outside edge, but perhaps there was boot first ... all a bit incolnclusive 210/9
