    17.4 gone. Moeen runs down the track, and Faulkner bowls a shortish slower ball. He swings across the line, and the extra bounce forces him to top-edge it high in the air, and the man at short cover settles comfortably under it 113/1

    41.2 that is that. The slower ball ends Bell's innings. He comes down the track, Sandhu bowls it shorter, and he goes through with the attempted flat-bat smack over mid-off. Hits high on the bat, and it loops to the left of mid-off, from where Starc manages to backtrack and dive to his left to take a smart catch 253/3
    22.2 gone! That was full on off stump, and Taylor goes for the drive over extra cover, he's too close to the pitch of the ball and ends up toe-ending it and hitting it in the air, straight to mid-off 132/2
    44.4 gone! That's a length ball outside off, it was there to be hit, but Root, clearing his front leg, couldn't get any elevation on it, and he ended up popping it straight into mid-on's hands 275/5
    41.4 got him first ball! That was back of a length, angling across, and Morgan feels for it outside off, looking to run it down to third man, and gets a thin edge through to Haddin 254/4
    49.5 another, and it's a run out this time. Length ball, swinging away from off stump. Woakes swings and misses and they try to sneak a bye. Haddin's throw knocks back middle stump, and Buttler is short of his crease despite putting in the dive 303/7

    49.4 bowled him. Bopara had taken guard outside off stump, exposing all of his stumps, and Starc bowled him around the legs, clattering the base of leg stump with a low full-toss that swung from outside leg 303/6
    49.6 and that's another run-out, is it? Yup, and Australia have a team hat-trick to finish the innings. Broad makes room and Starc spears in another yorker, just outside off. For some reason, Broad didn't even attempt a shot and they looked for another bye. Haddin rolled it into the base of the stumps, and Woakes was well short of his crease. 303/8

    11.4 bowled him! That was a poor shot from Finch, slogging across the line to a full, straight ball, and I think he may have yorked himself 76/1
    16.1 got him! Marsh has a propensity to slice the ball uppishly behind square, and Finn entices exactly that shot from him with a full, wide tempter, and he hits it straight to backward point 92/2

    16.3 stunning delivery, and he started celebrating even before the umpire gave it out. It was the inswinging yorker, and White's front pad was thrust across the crease, offering a large target, and there was no way he was going to bring his bat down and play around his pad. 92/3
    26.4 and he's struck again! Brain-fade from Maxwell, who sees a bit of air and goes for the big slog-sweep. Hits it well, but picks out Root at deep midwicket. He didn't have to move an inch. 161/4
    37.2 taken! Bell's grabbed a beauty. Faulkner was halfway forward to drive and it moved away late and caused the bat to turn in his hand and the ball to slice uppishly towards point. It was a low catch, inches off the ground, and Bell made it look much simpler than it was 216/5
    47.3 and he's gone. That's a short ball, a back-of-the-hand slower ball, and he made himself a lot of room and had to reach out a long way to try and connect. Ended up top-edging it, and the ball looped into point's hands 297/6
    49.3 gone! That was right up there from Woakes again, and he drove firmly to mid-off and set off for the single. Nervy moment there, and Taylor's throw hit the stumps direct at the bowler's end. He was moving towards extra cover and only had one stump to aim at 302/7
