48.1

Siddle to Swann, 1 run, double bluff, it's fuller on off stump and dropped into the off side...well played

Siddle to Swann, no run, a decent short ball this time and Swann turns his head as he sinks onto his knees

48.5

Siddle to Swann, 1 run, targeting the body again, flicked away off his hip through square leg...Swann slips so it means they can't make the second

England 157/6   GP Swann 2* (5b)
49.1

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, ah, now that's a good short one, well directed over off stump and it's close to Swann's gloves as he drops his hands. Short balls don't have to start very short here, if you know what I mean

49.2

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, another one which is a touch wider and Swann drops his hands again

49.3

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, fuller outside off and Swann pulls the bat inside the line

England 159/6   GP Swann 4* (11b)
51.1

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, short of a length, shaping away past Swann's bat

51.2

Hilfenhaus to Swann, FOUR, crutched...Swann brings out a powerful back-foot drive through the covers as he's offered a hint of width. Put it away well

51.3

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, good response from Hilfenhaus, tighter to off stump and I think Swann just about drew his bat away

51.4

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, fuller outside the stumps and Swann shoulders arms

51.5

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, good ball, on middle and off, defended towards point

51.6

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, a nice ball to finish with, on a good line outside off and that time Swann might have been beaten

England 163/6   GP Swann 8* (17b 1x4)
53.1

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, outswing again from Hilf, Swann defends

53.2

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, driven uppishly wide of mid-off, where Harris hurls himself to his right to make an excellent save of a ball that would otherwise have gone for four

53.3

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, shorter this time and Swann sways out of the way

53.4

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, outswing again, Swann watches closely and defends it

53.5

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, solidly defended again by Swann, who seems confident picking the swing from Hilfenhaus at this stage

53.6

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, good line just outside off, but again Swann pushes it back to Ben

England 165/6   GP Swann 8* (23b 1x4)
54.6

Johnson to Swann, no run, beaten outside off, this one went straight across Swann, who drove looking for the inswing

England 170/6   GP Swann 8* (24b 1x4)
56.1

Johnson to Swann, no run, Johnson digs it in short but it's moving across Swann with the angle and he doesn't have to do much to avoid it

56.2

Johnson to Swann, no run, beaten outside off as Swann drives well inside it

56.3

Johnson to Swann, no run, leading edge this time as Swann plays a straight ball, looking to work it to leg

56.4

Johnson to Swann, no run, Swann swings hard, looking for a cover drive but this one beats the bat

56.5

Johnson to Swann, 2 runs, runs for Swann this time as he does find the gap at cover, not quite timed though

56.6

Johnson to Swann, 1 run, down leg side and Swann swipes this one in the air to fine leg, swinging across the line, and it bounces short of Harris

England 181/6   GP Swann 11* (30b 1x4)
57.1

Harris to Swann, OUT, Harris strikes! Swann is gone, prodding forward and getting an edge through to Haddin, it was another good ball that just straightened enough, well deserved by Harris
