    3.3 good length, outside off, caught behind! He should've been forward there. Instead, he tries to make room, clears his front leg and tries to chop it behind square. Healthy edge on that and easy catch 22/2
    1.5 tossed up on off stump, tries to slog it to the same region as he got his boundary, but the ball has hurried to him, and he can't get either placement or elevation - straight to Weatherald at mid-on 11/1
    4.3 What a catch! Pitched short, climbs from a leg stump line, Sangakkara gets back and absolutely crunches his hook shot, but O'Connor, who is a few yards in on that long fine leg boundary, leaps backwards and completes a stunning catch. That ball was mean as it traveled, flat, towards the boundary. 24/3
    5.1 OH DEAR! Good length just outside off stump, his hands go faster than his feet, he's nowhere near it. Gets a little big on him as he tries a big cover drive and the thick outside edge finds backward point 30/5
    4.4 145 kph, inswinging yorker on off stump, he tries to get his bat down, but is locked by his front leg that has moved across, and it catches him on the boot 24/4
    16.1 well taken at long leg. Stanlake runs in quite a distance from the boundary, keeping his eyes on the ball all the way, and pouches it with a slide to boot. One of the few shots that Wells mistimes, but that's all the margin a batsman gets. Pays the price for being deceived by the change of pace. Top bowling from Laughlin 119/6

    16.4 taken at extra cover. Beautiful over from Laughlin. It's the slower ball again, this time short and well wide of the batsman. That's because Kingston was thinking about the slog, his front leg cleared and his intent clear. All the bowler had to do was make sure the ball was outside of his reach to make him mistime it. 120/7
    19.3 runs across his stumps, looking to scoop the ball over fine leg, ends up giving Jordan a clear view of all his stumps and the bowler says thank you very much, buh-bye. Boyce was perhaps setting up for a wide yorker, and is surprised by a low full toss on leg 154/8

    2.2 140 kph length delivery canons into middle! Awful shot from Weatherald, rank slog, going right across the line of a a simple, straight ball and misses it altogether. 24/1

    5 caught at point. It's the slower ball again. Kingston is absolutely delighted at pulling off a little magic trick. It's full, its wide, its inviting and Head takes the bait. Goes for a wristy old lash and mistimes it to, who else, Webster 47/2
    12.1 looks to just run a good length ball to the third man boundary - with the man standing inside the circle. But Broad's length is too full. So the deflection is a lot finer than Hodge wants. Guides it straight to the keeper. 115/3
    13.2 pad first, in front of the stumps, massive shout from the wicketkeeper, the bowler barely looks disinterested, but the umpire gives it. Big call that. This good length delivery pitches outside off and jags back into the right-hander. Pollard tries to defend, but he brings the bat down the wrong line. Pollard looks utterly bemused as he walks off. But that wasn't entirely a bad decision. It's the kind that you get in the age of DRS. Hit on the knee-roll, off you go 130/4
    14.2 nicks it! Superb delivery from Broad. It's back of a length, kicking up off the pitch, and this extra bounce is what does Dean. Goes for a forceful back foot drive and mucks it up 133/5
