    8.6 a poor shot. Goes for a flick which was a poor shot to begin with as it's against the turn, especially with the ball slanted across. But this one's a googly which spins in to beat the inside edge and take out off-stump 64/3
    3.5 edged and taken. Sandhu provides the breakthrough with an off-cutter that bounces more than expected. Tight line outside off, so draws the batsman forward and forces him to play at it. Because of the lack of pace, the edge doesn't quite carry but does well to compensate for that by diving forward to take the catch 29/1
    8.1 loses shape as he comes down the ground and lofts this one. Probably because of the drift. Seemed a bit too sharp. It was the right length but he was opened up slightly because of the ball going away from him and skewed it off the splice to hole out to long-on 54/2
    18.5 slower fullish length ball and wide at 110kmph, slashes away from the body and gets the edge as it bounces slightly 140/6
    14.1 backs away a long way across and exposes all three stumps. Fawad has followed him with a pretty full delivery. What's worse, it doesn't spin as much. Wells slashes at it with a flat bat and makes no contact. Nowhere near it 98/4
    17.4 slants it across again. It's a poor delivery, to be honest. Short. But it's fired a lot wider and that results in the ball finding the bottom of the bat as the ball lobs in the air to point 127/5
    19.1 miscommunication on the second run. Short ball, pulled through the square leg umpire who has to do a bit of a high jump to gets out of the way and Lehmann wants the second. Rashid says no. Lehmann runs and runs, and continues to all the way until they're both at the same end 141/7

    10.6 oh, dear! He must be feeling hard done by. He's been trying the pull for a while now but wasn't middling it. Now he finally flays it bang off the middle but has picked out deep backward square leg who gets across to his left and snaffles it easily in front of the boundary 61/2
    6.5 bowled him. Rashis strikes. And it's with the wrong'un. Loops it up to Buttler who jams the bat down but doesn't pick the variation. The ball spins into him and may have got an inside edge before clattering into the stumps 45/1
    13.1 top catch at long-on Lack of pace again does the batsman in. Watson fetches a pull from outside off but he has to muster all the power he can to clear the boundary. He does but it still doesn't suffice. Lehmann at the boundary moves back and takes it reverse-cupped, sees the momentum taking him over, releases the ball, steps out, steps back into the field of play and completes it. Tell you what, he made it look like the simplest of catches but he really had to be wary of the boundary. He was inches away from it 75/3
    15.1 catching practice at short fine leg. Slower short ball, bounces too much for his comfort and he ekes out a top-edge 87/4
    16.2 goes for a slog again and this time he makes connection. But it's not good enough. Picks out deep midwicket who takes a good low catch with the ball dying on him 97/5
    18.3 lucky to get a wicket here. They continue feeding to Rohrer's strengths. Once again a wide half-volley, well within his arc and Rohrer thumps it straight down. But Laughlin takes a superb catch, runs to his right from long-on and gets behind the line perfectly to grab it 125/6
    18.5 ah, a tame dismissal next ball. That should be the game now. A low full toss, absolutely no pace, tries to heave and chips it to deep midwicket 131/7

    19.2 edged and gone. Doesn't get behind the line. Just clears the front leg and swipes hard at a short of a length ball that's angled across him. Nicked off to the keeper 133/8
    19.4 tries a reverse sweep for a full toss and the ball goes to short third man off the pad. And he's been hit plumb in front of middle and off 133/9
