  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150
  • Overs 151-200
5.1

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, well, nothing dramatic to start with. Johnson hurls one down on a length, Cook plays a slightly ungainly nudge to leg, and they steal a sharp single

5.2

Johnson to Strauss, no run, beaten on the outside edge! Although the delivery was even worse than the shot. Horribly short and wide from Johnson, and Strauss can be forgiven somewhat for having a go at that. He looked to uppercut it over gully, but didn't get close

5.3

Johnson to Strauss, 2 runs, into the pads this time, and the ball is firmly clipped down to fine leg

5.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, that's better from Johnson, full and straight and Strauss pushes to mid-on. But can he land two balls on the same spot?

5.5

Johnson to Strauss, (no ball) 3 runs, perhaps not, as there's width on offer this time and Strauss cuts well, into the ground and bouncing over point. What's more, it's a no-ball

5.5

Johnson to Cook, no run, good length from Johnson, but it's just too wide of off to get Cook playing

5.6

Johnson to Cook, FOUR, ah, another horrid long-hop from Johnson, and this time he's spanked up and over gully by Cook. It was a rank delivery, and put away in style. Cook nails the shot Strauss was attempting earlier

England 25/0   MG Johnson 1-0-11-0
7.1

Johnson to Strauss, no run, Johnson dished up a poor opening over but he's started this one well, fullish outside off and left alone

7.2

Johnson to Strauss, no run, very straight from Johnson, no swing, but at least it's a good delivery that forces a defence from Strauss

7.3

Johnson to Strauss, no run, touch shorter, the line remains good though so Strauss can do nothing but nurdle to leg

7.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, false shot, first real one we've seen this innings, Strauss trying to be too cute, working a straight ball to leg, found a leading edge that went to gully

7.5

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, yorker slung up quickly, Strauss clamps down just in time and earns himself a single to mid-on for the effort

7.6

Johnson to Cook, no run, short and wide, Cook cracks his cut into the ground and finds Hughes at point, the crowd think they have something. They don't

England 31/0   MG Johnson 2-0-12-0
9.1

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, Johnson loses his line, possibly his mojo too but it's too early to tell, Cook clips around the corner for a single

9.2

Johnson to Strauss, FOUR, ah good delivery here but it costs the bowler four, full and seaming away, Strauss playing with the softest of hands it and it goes down and wide of the second slip for four

9.3

Johnson to Strauss, 4 byes, ooops, that's the bad Mitch that terrifies Australia fans, no ball and fired a country mile down the leg side, Haddin had no chance and it sped to the fine-leg boundary

9.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, phew! This one is straight, and Johnson celebrates that mercy by following through a long way towards a nonplussed Strauss

9.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, straight again and comes off the inside edge to square leg

9.6

Johnson to Strauss, no run, this is outside off stump and Strauss leaves alone expansively, almost making a show to the opposition

England 42/0   MG Johnson 3-0-17-0
31.1

Johnson to Cook, no run, loosener from Johnson, pinging one down outside off as Cook leaves well alone

31.2

Johnson to Cook, FOUR, well, the signs aren't good for Johnson. His second ball is short and wide, and Cook goes to his fifty with a powerful cut that speeds past Hughes at point

31.3

Johnson to Cook, no run, good comeback from Johnson, targeting the stumps and finding just a hint of wobble through the air. But can he maintain that line?

31.4

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, slipping into the pads this time, Cook nudges behind square on the leg side for a single

31.5

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, short, and Strauss was waiting on the back foot. There's a man out on the pull, so just the one run

31.6

Johnson to Cook, no run, a tight end to what has been a real mixed bag from Johnson, and Cook defends back down the track

England 109/0   MG Johnson 4-0-23-0
33.1

Johnson to Cook, no run, decent start from Johnson, good pace and the right length, tight on off stump. Cook is well in though, and defends without alarm

33.2

Johnson to Cook, no run, just short of a good length, but the line is still good and Cook stays back to defend this time

33.3

Johnson to Cook, no run, three in three on the spot for Johnson, is he getting some rhythm going? Plenty of encouragement from the field for him, and Ponting is also talking to him after every ball

33.4

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, too short for this placid pitch, and Cook rolls the wrists on a controlled pull

33.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, on a length outside off, Strauss watches it closely and leaves alone

33.6

Johnson to Strauss, 2 runs, flicked off the pads out to deep midwicket for Strauss's 6,000th and 6,001st Test runs

England 112/0   MG Johnson 5-0-26-0
35.1

Johnson to Cook, FOUR, Cook gets four here, not entirely where he wanted, he just pushed forward to defend with soft hands and it ran off the face wide of the slips for four

35.2

Johnson to Cook, 1 wide, Johnson's response is a bouncer, a very very short one and Cook stands entirely still to leave alone

35.2

Johnson to Cook, 3 runs, oops, not a great ball here, short and wide and Cook crashes a cut shot towards the point boundary

35.3

Johnson to Strauss, no run, careful defence off the back foot to this straight Johnson ball

35.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, fullish and straightish from Johnson and Strauss stands tall to defend

35.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, back of a length outside off stump, Strauss doesn't move his feet but defends to cover

35.6

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, touch short again and Strauss wheels away a controlled pull shot for a single

England 124/0   MG Johnson 6-0-35-0
37.1

Johnson to Cook, 2 runs, Johnson floats this up wide and full, Cook obliges with a drive and though he doesn't time it ideally, picks up a couple

37.2

Johnson to Cook, 1 run, timed firmly to mid-on where Siddle manages to collect with a speculative thrust-out hand

37.3

Johnson to Strauss, FOUR, uppish but no chance, short and a touch wide and Strauss sliced the cut shot over gully for four

37.4

Johnson to Strauss, no run, Johnson finds the right length and line and Strauss has to defend

37.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, back of a length again, Strauss aims a more controlled cut shot but finds point

37.6

Johnson to Strauss, no run, careful and considered defence from Strauss as Johnson ends an over well

England 135/0   MG Johnson 7-0-42-0
61.1

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, starts with a nondescript pudding delivery outside off stump. I'm not sure what a pudding delivery is, but gentle is probably what I mean

61.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, this, bless Mitch, is straight, the pace isn't bad either and Pietersen defends

61.3

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, another off-stump delivery, no real snap or verve in the action as yet, quite ginger - like Collingwood - Pietersen steals a single to cover by virtue of soft hands

61.4

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, touch too short, but no Harmison-like wide nonsense, Trott stands tall and flaps a two into deep midwicket

61.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, hello!? Is that Mitch the destroyer? Looked like it as it spat off a length and reared into Trott's gloves. Johnson is so pleased he even has a sledge at Trott, who looks entirely nonplussed

61.6

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, Trott will make thousands of runs like this, stepping over to the off side and working a couple to midwicket

England 193/2   MG Johnson 8-0-47-0
63.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, Johnson slings up a full one and spins on his heels in alarm as he sees Trott drive firmly back down the ground, fortunately for the bowler mid-off scooted around in time

63.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, Trott shuffles a long way to the off side here and plays across his pads, drawing an "oooh" from the bowler

63.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, touch wider of off here, perhaps it was an intentional tempter, but I'm not sure Johnson can intend anything to great effect, Trott squeezed his drive to point

63.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, this is a decent delivery, nothing fancy, just on and around off stump

63.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, with his low, low arm Johnson has to dig it in very short to get a bouncer up, gives Trott eras to get under it

63.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, right, note this moment, I saw swing. Swing for Johnson! Reverse swing too, nothing huge but it just bent away late to Trott as he defended. Worth keeping an eye on

England 193/2   MG Johnson 9-1-47-0
65.1

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, good line from Johnson, good pace too and Pietersen plays a defence on the walk

65.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, Johnson searches for some swing by pitching it full, there is no swing other than Pietersen's bat, which slams it to mid-off

65.3

Johnson to Pietersen, 3 runs, lovely shot, Pietersen at his best, picking up runs where most players would block, he just got across to off stump and whipped through midwicket for three

65.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, oops, that's the Mitch that terrifies everyone in Australia, shoved well across the batsman outside off stump

65.5

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, good delivery here, caught Trott on the hop as a shortish ball zipped through and hurried Trott as he tried to pull, still collected a safe single to fine leg to bring up England's 200

65.6

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, very wide again of off, not a great delivery but Johnson still has plenty to say to Pietersen, something along the lines of "when I get one straight, then you'll see", presumably

England 200/2   MG Johnson 10-1-51-0
67.1

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, since I mentioned Johnson might have swung one it has all been gun-barrel straight, this is too short anyway and Trott works his short-arm pull to fine leg for one

67.2

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, ah, touch of reverse here, but it starts outside off and goes further, Pietersen leaves with disdain

67.3

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, yup, good swinging signs for Johnson, but it must be said Pietersen is lining him up very well at the moment and drills this to mid-off

67.4

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, plenty of action for a single, touch short from Johnson, found perhaps a hint of extra bounce but Pietersen nailed the pull shot, it reached deep square in a flash

67.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, pushed up fuller and wide of Trott, who thinks better of playing

67.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, careful defence to end the over, not a bad one from Johnson

England 206/2   MG Johnson 11-1-53-0
69.1

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, Johnson searching for swing again, allows Trott to lean a couple through cover

69.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, pushed across Trott, the swing tailing away with the angle is not as worrying for the batsman as the inducking variety, so Trott leaves comfortably

69.3

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, nurdled to leg in the most routine of fashions

69.4

Johnson to Pietersen, no run, patted firmly to mid-off

69.5

Johnson to Pietersen, 1 run, banged in short and Pietersen is hurried on the pull shot, sending it one-bounce to Hilfenhaus at fine leg

69.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, solid back-foot defence from Trott to finish the over

England 210/2   MG Johnson 12-1-57-0
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

91.4

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, touch short again and Trott whips it to midwicket for a single

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

91.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, Trott shuffles into a forward block and Johnson gets a cheer for his wicket-taking over

England 283/4   MG Johnson 13-1-59-1
93.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, Johnson's run up is a touch more sprightly after his wicket and he lands this around off stump, worked to midwicket

93.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, pushed across outside off stump and left alone

93.3

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, back of a length and Trott works to deep square for a single

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   MG Johnson 14-1-60-1
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

95.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, nothing happening in the air or off the pitch here, just slung outside off stump and left alone

95.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, Trott stands tall to defend to point

95.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, goodness me, another short ball almost finds success, nothing more than a long-hop really and Trott aims a pull but misses

England 286/5   MG Johnson 15-2-60-2
97.1

Johnson to Prior, no run, neither here, because it's outside off stump and Prior steers to gully

97.2

Johnson to Prior, no run, this is short, but very short and Prior flinches inside the line to let it go by

97.3

Johnson to Prior, no run, this is much too wide of off to draw Prior into a shot. Not ideal from the bowler really

97.4

Johnson to Prior, no run, urgh, it's another horrid wide delivery well outside off stump, Prior ignores it

97.5

Johnson to Prior, 1 wide, oh crickey, this is so short it almost hit his own toe, predictably it gets up very high, too high for the umpire's liking

97.5

Johnson to Prior, no run, Johnson lands a straight ball and celebrates by giving Prior a stare after he defended carefully

97.6

Johnson to Prior, FOUR, ah, good finish to the over for Johnson but gets four against his name, swung away a fraction and flicked the outside edge going down wide of the slips to the third man rope

England 294/5   MG Johnson 16-2-65-2
99.1

Johnson to Prior, no run, shortish bouncer, touch too far down the leg side and Prior easily lets it go by

99.2

Johnson to Prior, no run, fuller this time and outside off, a slash-at-me-please type of delivery but Prior does nothing of the sort and instead leaves alone

99.3

Johnson to Prior, 1 no ball, gone this time! Johnson gets another! Or has he!? It was a clear nick behind but umpire Dar thinks it might be a no ball. The replay suggests it might be! Ricky Ponting might explode here... Really good work from umpire Dar, he clearly felt there might be a problem and just as Australia were celebrating he called Prior back and consulted the third umpire which proved Johnson had overstepped the line

99.3

Johnson to Prior, 1 run, well, after all that action this is a quiet clip to leg for a single

99.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, calm and careful defence from Trott, I bet he's barely noticed what's been going on, such is his bubble

99.5

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, worked off the pads for a single to midwicket

99.6

Johnson to Prior, FOUR, this will make Johnson even more annoyed, lovely drive from Prior, stroking through extra cover and making Ponting chase all the way to the rope

England 301/5   MG Johnson 17-2-72-2
101.1

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, Trott picks up where he left off, accumulating another couple of runs with a neat flick to leg

101.2

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, Trott scores so many runs in the area between midwicket and mid-on and now he picks up two more with another carbon-copy nudge into the leg side

101.3

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, identical ball from Johnson, short of a good length on off stump, and for the third time Trott targets midwicket ... this time it's just the one run

101.4

Johnson to Prior, 2 runs, hooked, top-edged, and the slip cordon charges back ... but the ball drops safely in no-man's land behind them. The luck remains with Prior

101.5

Johnson to Prior, no run, short of a good length, Prior resists the urge to play an attacking horizontal bat stroke this time, tapping the ball back down the wicket

101.6

Johnson to Prior, no run, short again, a true bouncer this time and Prior sways out of the way in a hurry

England 311/5   MG Johnson 18-2-79-2
103.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, full of length to start from Johnson, and Trott drives gently to mid-on

103.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, Johnson keeps the ball in Trott's half, this time the drive goes into the off side

103.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, Trott looks for runs at midwicket with that characteristic shuffling clip, but picks out the field

103.4

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, short on off stump, but not quite the bouncer and Trott is in no trouble getting right on top of the ball and pulling down to fine leg

103.5

Johnson to Prior, no run, moving towards the slips slightly after pitching, chopped down to gully

103.6

Johnson to Prior, no run, pushed fuller and wider by Johnson, too wide to play a controlled shot to and Prior wisely opts to leave alone

England 313/5   MG Johnson 19-2-80-2
105.1

Johnson to Prior, no run, testing line and good pace from Johnson, Prior stays deep in the crease and plays the ball down behind square on the off side

105.2

Johnson to Prior, 1 run, short from Johnson, but down the leg side and the ball is hooked down to fine leg ... all along the ground

105.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, fuller, Trott shuffles across to off and drives to mid-on

105.4

Johnson to Trott, 3 runs, full and wide, Trott places the drive in front of cover point and picks up three runs

105.5

Johnson to Prior, no run, on a length, defended into the off side

105.6

Johnson to Prior, no run, leaving the batsman off the pitch, Prior plays away from the body to guide the ball to point

England 321/5   MG Johnson 20-2-84-2
127.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, loosener on middle and off, it keeps slightly low as Trott works to leg

127.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, mis-directed down the leg side. Not a horribly wide delivery, but would've been called wide in a limited-overs game

127.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, Johnson finds a line outside off, Trott is solid in defence

127.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, well-directed bouncer from Johnson, Trott is taken slightly by surprise and pulls out of the hook at the very last moment

127.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, outside off this time, judiciously left alone by Trott

127.6

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, full and very wide indeed from Johnson, Trott really has to stretch to get to this one but manages to get it through gully

England 405/5   MG Johnson 21-2-85-2
129.1

Johnson to Prior, FOUR, up and over gully! It was a short ball from Johnson that rose up at Prior and took the shoulder of the bat, looping high over the slip cordon. Ponting just stands and shakes his head at the injustice of it all

129.2

Johnson to Prior, 1 run, very full this time, driven hard out to deep point

129.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, Johnson slams the ball down at his feet and the ball balloons high over Trott. Is that not a wide? Apparently not

129.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, short again, much better direction this time and the ball appears to burst past the glove on the way through to Haddin ... the 'keeper wants a review here, but that seems pretty unlikely. That must've been mighty close to the glove

129.5

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, dropped into the covers for one

129.6

Johnson to Prior, FOUR, a controlled, placed late cut from Prior sends the ball down to the third man boundary. He started in scratchy fashion but seems to have settled in nicely since then

England 425/5   MG Johnson 22-2-95-2
131.1

Johnson to Prior, 1 leg bye, nudged close on the leg side, there is some hesitation before the single is taken ... Johnson charges through and aims the ball towards the stumps with his right boot, but it goes wide. Would've been in all the same

131.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, a harmless bouncer sails over Trott's head

131.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, there's some spice from Johnson! A much better ball than the last, he gets this one to rise from just short of a good length. Past the outside edge

131.4

Johnson to Trott, FOUR, paddle-pull to another short ball, Hilfenhaus runs round at fine leg to cut it off but the ball evades him, much to the Barmy Army's amusement

131.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, another wasted short ball that bounces high over the batsman. No danger

131.6

Johnson to Trott, no run, and another bouncer to finish, this time a reasonable one. A mixed over from Johnson, to say the least

England 432/5   MG Johnson 23-2-99-2
133.1

Johnson to Prior, 2 runs, steered down wide of third man, and they're back for the second. Ton up for Johnson...

133.2

Johnson to Prior, no run, fuller and aimed at the off stump, Prior defends to cover

133.3

Johnson to Prior, no run, flung down round-arm and very wide of the off stump. Must've been very close to a wide

133.4

Johnson to Prior, no run, wide again, this time Prior throws the bat at it but can't get a touch on it

133.5

Johnson to Prior, no run, left alone outside off

133.6

Johnson to Prior, no run, very full but still wide outside off, Prior thinks about the drive but this late in the day opts instead for caution and leaves alone

England 439/5   MG Johnson 24-2-101-2
135.1

Johnson to Trott, no run, good length, but well wide of off and Trott is only too happy to leave alone. A wasted delivery

135.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, back of a length and angled into the body this time, Trott stays deep in the crease and works into the leg side

135.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, outside off, Trott leans into his umpteenth leave of the day

135.4

Johnson to Trott, no run, straighter, and the crowd are brought alive as Johnson collects the ball in his follow-through and threatens to throw the stumps down

135.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, gentle stuff from Johnson at the end of the day, and Trott defends off the front foot

135.6

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, runs off the final ball, two of them as Trott taps a full, wide ball through cover point. They run the second and as the Australian fielders start to wander off, Trott re-marks his guard, as is his wont

England 444/5   MG Johnson 25-2-103-2
147.1

Johnson to Trott, 3 runs, one day Australia will learn not to bowl to Trott on his pads, until then he'll clip through midwicket happily, timing it well enough to bring up his 150

147.2

Johnson to Swann, no run, sharp bouncer to Swann who hops to try and duck, never understood why batsmen do that, Johnson thinks about a few words before remembering that the scoreboard might not back him up

147.3

Johnson to Swann, no run, fuller this time and outside off, Swann shaped to drive but pulled out the shot

147.4

Johnson to Swann, FOUR, Johnson drifts down the leg side and Swann gloves a flap at it, sending it hurrying down to the fine leg rope

147.5

Johnson to Swann, no run, beaten all ends up, pushed across the right hander and ghosting past the edge

147.6

Johnson to Swann, no run, and again, good over that from Johnson, pushed full and across Swann who aims a nothing sort of push and misses

England 473/7   MG Johnson 26-2-110-2
149.1

Johnson to Swann, no run, gun-barrel straight from Johnson, and Swann taps defensively back down the track

149.2

Johnson to Swann, FOUR, slapped on the up through the off side! Swann doesn't need to worry much about swing from Johnson, and just swings his arms through the line of this wide delivery to send the ball bouncing away to the cover boundary

149.3

Johnson to Swann, no run, straighter from Johnson, tucked off the hip

149.4

Johnson to Swann, 3 runs, crashed over cover point! Full and wide from round the stumps, Swann steps well forward and scoops this over the off side field

149.5

Johnson to Trott, no run, tighter line from Johnson, and Trott is utterly solid in defence

149.6

Johnson to Trott, 3 runs, short and angling in to the ribs, Trott gets across and up on one leg to swivel-pull this down to fine leg. Good, controlled shot

England 483/7   MG Johnson 27-2-120-2
151.1

Johnson to Swann, 3 runs, merrily mowed over wide mid-on! It's not pretty but it's effective, pitched up and Swann went for it. A better connection would've brought him a boundary

151.2

Johnson to Trott, no run, dug in short and rising over leg stump, Trott walks across and sways out of the way, briefly thinking about the hook

151.3

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, this time he does hook as Johnson sends down another bumper, a controlled stroke races down to fine leg, where a sliding Hilfenhaus does very well to stop the boundary

151.4

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, fuller, nudged to midwicket for a single

151.5

Johnson to Swann, FOUR, cracked over square leg! This wasn't all that short, but Swann picked up the length early and pulled it purposefully over the fielder and down to the boundary

151.6

Johnson to Swann, no run, just short of a good length, but nice and straight and Swann defends

England 499/7   MG Johnson 28-2-130-2
153.1

Johnson to Swann, 1 run, short again from Johnson, hooked down to fine leg and there's the 500

153.2

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, has this just plugged in the pitch? It certainly wasn't the slower one from Johnson, but Trott was far too early into the drive and the ball flew in the air, but dropping short of mid-off

153.3

Johnson to Trott, no run, tapped rather more safely along the ground to mid-off this time

153.4

Johnson to Trott, 1 run, short, with a hint of width that is increased by the angle of delivery, tapped to cover point for one

153.5

Johnson to Swann, no run, back of a length, dropped close in on the leg side and they briefly think about a cheeky single
