86.4

Siddle to Collingwood, no run, good start, full and curling in on off stump. Solid defence from Collingwood

86.5

Siddle to Collingwood, no run, hitting the seam and going the other way, but Colly watches it closely and plays it down to gully

86.6

Siddle to Collingwood, 1 run, Collingwood is off the mark, but it's not in entirely convincing fashion as a thick inside edge bounces past the stumps and trickles to short fine leg

England 263/3   PD Collingwood 1* (3b)
87.1

Harris to Collingwood, no run, a horrid, ungainly swipe to leg from Collingwood, unsurprisingly ball beats bat and strikes pad ... but that's going over the top, and the appeal for lbw is quickly turned down. Collingwood really doesn't look in the best nick here

87.2

Harris to Collingwood, no run, fuller, driven to mid-off

87.3

Harris to Collingwood, no run, driven, harder this time and back towards the bowler, who tumbles in his follow-through to cut it off

87.4

Harris to Collingwood, no run, Harris is keeping up an attacking line here, right at the stumps, and Collingwood plays back down the track

87.5

Harris to Collingwood, no run, coming in off the seam from outside the off stump, Collingwood wears this one on the inner thigh off the inside edge

87.6

Harris to Collingwood, FOUR, edged, but through the gap between the two gully fielders! It was full again, but well outside off this time and Collingwood was only half forward into the drive. Close!

England 267/3   PD Collingwood 5* (9b 1x4)
88.5

Siddle to Collingwood, no run, rushing on to Collingwood from a good length, defended late and right under the eyes

88.6

Siddle to Collingwood, no run, a good, testing delivery on off stump, but Collingwood is resolute in defence

England 270/3   PD Collingwood 5* (11b 1x4)
89.2

Harris to Collingwood, 3 runs, the first one Collingwood has timed in what seems like weeks, he threads the gap at cover and good running fetches him three runs

England 274/3   PD Collingwood 8* (12b 1x4)
91.1

Johnson to Collingwood, no run, oh no, bad start for Mitch, wild and down the leg side, Collingwood flings at it but can't connect

91.2

Johnson to Collingwood, no run, much better delivery here, finding some extra bounce from back of a length and Collingwood defends with an angled bat

91.3

Johnson to Collingwood, OUT, Collingwood fails again, he was trying to be positive and has managed to lift a Johnson long-hop straight to fine leg who held on gleefully! Johnson celebrates and maybe that will kick-start his Test

PD Collingwood c Siddle b Johnson 8 (27m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

England 281/4   PD Collingwood 8 (15b 1x4)
