91.5

Johnson to Bell, 1 run, Bell plays the pull shot, and does so much more successfully than Collingwood, rolling his wrists nicely to stroll a single

England 283/4   IR Bell 1* (1b)
92.1

Siddle to Bell, no run, ooh, cracker from Siddle, hits the seam and nips away past the outside edge of Bell, takes a lot to beat Bell in this form

92.2

Siddle to Bell, no run, this time Bell is forward and blocking more confidently

92.3

Siddle to Bell, no run, Siddle errs on the short side and Bell creams a cut shot but straight to cover

92.4

Siddle to Bell, no run, once again Bell gets into line to defend solidly

92.5

Siddle to Bell, no run, Siddle is settled on a good line and length but he's finding nothing but the middle of Bell's broad defensive blade

92.6

Siddle to Bell, no run, good line outside off stump, good length too but Bell has everything lined up nicely and leaves alone

England 283/4   IR Bell 1* (7b)
93.4

Johnson to Bell, no run, slung full and wide of Bell outside off stump, left well alone by Bell

93.5

Johnson to Bell, no run, Bell is a vastly more confident man these days, so much so he thinks he can flirt wantonly outside off, played it well enough but not a great shot

93.6

Johnson to Bell, no run, this is defended more securely, close to the body into the off side. No great threat from that Johnson over

England 284/4   IR Bell 1* (10b)
95.1

Johnson to Bell, no run, England have done well to remain patient today, Australia have bowled tidily and again here an off-stump ball is calmly repelled

95.2

Johnson to Bell, no run, more cool and calm defence from Bell, who seems to have days to play

95.3

Johnson to Bell, OUT, Johnson has another and Bell has gone! Short ball, gets up a touch higher than Bell expected and he top-edged a hook down towards Siddle who ran in and dived to hold on to an excellent catch

IR Bell c Siddle b Johnson 1 (19m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.69

England 286/5   IR Bell 1 (13b)
