0.6

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, Hilfenhaus attacks the stumps and Trott defends safely

England 0/1   IJL Trott 0* (3b)

2.1

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, a little outswing once more from the moustachioed Hilfenhaus, Trott leaves it alone

2.2

Hilfenhaus to Trott, FOUR, and England are off the mark - Trott plays with soft hands and gets a thickish edge away through the vacant fourth slip region for a boundary to third man. They're away!

2.3

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, left alone outside off, good shape away from Hilfenhaus

2.4

Hilfenhaus to Trott, FOUR, lovely shot! Trott is showing no sign of nerves here - he gets on on the pads and flicks it confidently forward square leg for the second boundary of the over

2.5

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, fullish, wide and swinging away, Trott goes for the square drive and finds the debutant Doherty at point

2.6

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, straighter line this time, Trott leaves it

England 8/1   IJL Trott 8* (9b 2x4)

3.4

Siddle to Trott, no run, bouncer time! It's on line, but Trott is watchful and ducks underneath it safely

3.5

Siddle to Trott, 1 no ball, Siddle continues to probe outside off, Trott lets it go through, and it's an overstep, says Aleem Dar

3.5

Siddle to Trott, no run, there's a big lbw shout, Dar says not out and Ricky Ponting wants a review. At first glance that looked like it may have been swinging down leg - and in fact Aleem Dar's decision has been upheld. Not out. The replay shows that would have clipped leg stump only - meaning it remains with the umpire's call.

3.6

Siddle to Trott, no run, good ball, nipping back in from a good length and Trott cops one in the midriff

England 10/1   IJL Trott 8* (13b 2x4)

4.3

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, good outswing again from Hilfenhaus, once more Trott shoulders arms

4.4

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, big, hooping, curving outswing, too much to tempt Trott, who again leaves it

4.5

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, oh, what a good ball - after all the wider balls, this one is much straighter, angles in and straightens away from Trott, and it beats the outside edge. Great ball!

6.5

Hilfenhaus to Trott, 1 leg bye, full and swinging in, half an lbw shout from Hilfenhaus as Trott gets it away through square leg, but that one would have slid down leg

7.1

7.4

Siddle to Trott, no run, bouncer but wide of off, Trott simply leaves it alone

Hilfenhaus to Trott, 2 runs, good shot, instead of driving through midwicket Trott just goes straighter - drives it into the ground and back past the bowler, Johnson chases it down inside the boundary

8.4

Hilfenhaus to Trott, no run, oh, leading edge to gully, but it's bounced short! Trott tried to flick a fuller one through midwicket

8.5

Hilfenhaus to Trott, 2 runs, on the hips this time, Hilfenhaus gives Trott too much leeway and he clips it forward of square leg nicely, an easy two runs there

England 30/1   IJL Trott 19* (41b 3x4)

11.1

Siddle to Trott, FOUR, not a good ball, and Trott helps it on its way nicely. It's stomach-high and down leg side, Trott turns a pull away down to fine leg, much too fine for the fielder at deep backward square

11.2

Siddle to Trott, no run, driven back to the bowler off the face of the bat

11.3

Siddle to Trott, no run, well wide of off and swinging away, Trott won't chase it

13.2

Watson to Trott, 1 wide, filth, utter Harmison-like filth, well wide of off stump

13.2

Watson to Trott, no run, Watson adjusts his line, as well he needed to, but still wide enough for Trott to leave alone

13.3

Watson to Trott, no run, you can almost hear the creaks as Watson goes through his action, no great pace at all, but a decent line and Trott full-faces to mid-off

Watson to Trott, no run, touch too wide of off stump again and Trott will have nothing to do with it
