8.1

Siddle to Cook, no run, horrid start from Siddle, almost as if he's held that ball the wrong way around! It's swung waaaay down leg, and Haddin does tremendously to dive across and stop that with his right hand

8.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, again it's swinging in, but again it's the wrong line, down leg side again

8.3

Siddle to Cook, no run, oh, good ball! Cook is drawn forward and prods just outside off, it beats the outside edge

8.4

Siddle to Cook, no run, ooh, a brave leave from Cook as this one swings in and sails just over the off stump

8.5

Siddle to Cook, no run, probing outside off with another that swings in, Cook leaves it

8.6

Siddle to Cook, no run, banged in a touch shorter of a length, Cook leaves it alone

England 21/0   PM Siddle 1-1-0-0

10.2

Siddle to Cook, no run, banged in short of a length, Cook works it to leg

10.3

Siddle to Cook, 1 run, good yorker, swinging in a touch but in this form Cook is good enough to clip that away behind square leg

10.4

Siddle to Strauss, no run, that's a pretty good bouncer, well directed and Strauss squats under it

10.5

Siddle to Strauss, no run, Strauss goes for the cover drive now, but can't beat the diving man in the infield

36.1

36.2

Siddle to Bell, no run, bouncer, over the head of Bell, who re-marks his guard and looks all focused and serious

36.3

Siddle to Bell, no run, short of a length again, Bell jumps back and nudges it to Hughes at short leg on the bounce

36.4

Siddle to Bell, no run, great ball, after all the short stuff, Siddle goes fuller and gets some movement away from Bell, who pushes outside off and misses the ball

36.5

Siddle to Bell, 3 runs, well placed, Bell just guides this through cover, punching it off the back foot and finding the gap

36.6

Siddle to Prior, 4 byes, d'oh! Wrong line entirely from Siddle as he sprays one down leg, Haddin has no chance of stopping this and it's been called byes

England 114/5   PM Siddle 3-1-7-0
38.1

Siddle to Prior, no run, starts full outside off, forced out into the off side

38.2

Siddle to Prior, 1 run, good yorker, Siddle trying for a repeat of how he did Prior at the Gabba, but's squeezed out through gully who will probably feel he should have cut it off

38.3

Siddle to Bell, 3 runs, lovely from Bell, boy he looks in good form, as he drives a delivery from off stump elegantly through the covers but mid-off manages to haul it in

38.4

Siddle to Prior, no run, good length on off stump, defended into the off side

38.5

Siddle to Prior, no run, well, what happened there? Looks like Prior lost that ball and almost lost his off stump too as he failed to pick up a low full toss which just misses the timber as Prior flays late at the ball

38.6

Siddle to Prior, no run, back outside off and left alone

England 123/5   PM Siddle 4-1-11-0

40.3

Siddle to Bell, no run, good line on off stump, keeping Bell in defensive mode

Siddle to Bell, 1 run, goes a little straighter and Bell tucks it away off his hip backward of square. He wants a second but it's not an option

Siddle to Bell, no run, on off stump and defended towards the on side

42.3

Siddle to Bell, FOUR, he's creamed that, shows Prior how to play the pull with a crunching shot that races to the boundary. He picked it up very early and took it from an off-stump line

42.4

Siddle to Bell, no run, much fuller on off stump, hint of movement into Bell as he drives to mid-on

44.1

Siddle to Bell, 1 run, well played, rides the bounce nicely by taking his bottom hand off the bat and work it through leg gully

44.2

Siddle to Prior, no run, a bouncer well outside leg stump and Prior barely has to move to avoid it

44.3

Siddle to Prior, no run, down the leg side again, but not too far from Prior's gloves as he has a little waft

44.4

Siddle to Prior, no run, short over leg stump and Prior jumps inside the line...hello Bodyline?

44.5

Siddle to Prior, no run, stays short and over leg stump so Prior moves inside the line again...at least he's sticking to a plan

44.6

Siddle to Prior, no run, a wasted over as this one also flies down the leg side, harmlessly past the batsman

England 141/5   PM Siddle 7-1-17-0
46.1

Siddle to Prior, 4 byes, that wasn't actually a bad bouncer, but it swings very late to beat Haddin's dive...well, I guess it was very short

46.2

Siddle to Prior, no run, another short one, this makes Prior play as he defends off the back foot from about leg stump

46.3

Siddle to Prior, no run, that's a good short ball, clangs Prior on the shoulder as he ducks into the line

46.4

Siddle to Prior, OUT, gone! Well, the short ball has worked in the end but probably not quite as they expected. The ball after getting hit, Prior moves across his stumps to work it away, but it deflects off his body, back down into his gloves, then down into leg stump to knock off the bail.

MJ Prior b Siddle 12 (62m 42b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

46.5

Siddle to Swann, no run, very short to start with, not surprising, and Swann ducks underneath

46.6

Siddle to Swann, no run, another short one outside off, Swann drops his hands and lets it go through.

England 145/6   PM Siddle 8-2-17-1
48.1

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

48.2

Siddle to Bell, 1 no ball, stays round the wicket, short of a length and pushed outside off which is left alone...and he overstepped

48.2

Siddle to Bell, FOUR, top shot! He's middled that. Another short one and Bell cracks away a strong pull which bisects deep square and long leg

48.3

Siddle to Bell, 1 run, full on off stump, pushed back past the bowler and mid-on is very wide

48.4

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

48.6

Siddle to Bell, no run, jumps back in his crease and defends by taking the bottom hand off the bat
