    13.3 Dockrell strikes again! Strauss out for 34 on his 34th birthday. Dockrell maintained his line, Strauss jumped outside off to try and manufacture a shovel to leg, in the end he couldn't catch up with the ball and it went straight into his stumps 91/1
    16.6 would you believe it? I guess you would have to. Ridiculous end to promising innings. Having faced two deliveries from Stirling, and played neither well, Pietersen aims a cute, reverse-dab. Manages a top edge that loops up for O'Brien to gobble behind the stumps 111/2

    44.3 stand and deliver! A flat-footed smack down the ground, but instead of a six over long-off, Trott loses his off stump! 288/4
    42.6 Bell falls! Wide on the crease, an attempted yorker turns into a full toss, Bell's clip is thoroughly middled, but Stirling at midwicket plucks a blinder low to his right! 278/3
    46.6 an inconclusive performance from Collingwood. Another swipe down the ground, but it was badly sliced, and mid-on made no mistake 312/6
    45.6 that was always coming. Prior's eye for a gap has deserted him, as he retreats to square leg in a bid to carve through the covers, but he's made too much room 299/5
    49.6 swirling, spiralling, steepling slog, into the leg-side, midwicket steadies himself well, sprints in, steps back, and snaffles a tough chance to finish the innings on a high 327/8
    48.3 good delivery, slower ball, pinpoint accuracy, Yardy loses the top of his middle stump as he climbs into a cut and misses everything 317/7

    0.1 ideal start for Anderson! Not a great delivery, full and wide outside off, but Porterfield dragged on to middle. Gut-wrenching for him and the Irish but just the spark Anderson needed 0/1
    9.5 ah, sad end for Stirling. Banged just back of a length from Bresnan around off stump and Stirling aimed a slug to leg. Only managed a top edge that sailed high and swirled over Pietersen, who watched it carefully at deep square to snaffle the chance. Bresnan the man again for England 62/2
    22.2 beauty from Swann does for Joyce. No mistake from Prior this time. Joyce skips down the track, bit of drop from Swann and sharp spin takes it past the outside edge, Prior has a single bail off in a flash. Swann is delighted, as well he might be 106/4
    20.2 whoops, that's the nut. Full length, slips under an extravagant sweep slog, and back goes the off stump! 103/3
    24.2 Wilson's torturous effort ends. Or does it? Review after Swann finds the pads as Wilson stretches forward to sweep. The only danger was the 2.5 metre stuff, but it's plumb. Not a very happy return for Wilson 111/5
    41.3 heartbreak for Ireland! It's a run out that breaks the stand. O'Brien blocked hard to point, Cusack set off for one before turning back to save his partner. The throw came into Broad who under-armed onto the stumps to beat Cusack's dive. Brilliant example of a supportive innings from Cusack, just calmly gave O'Brien the strike and finished it by sacrificing himself 273/6
