Lee to Prior, FOUR, Prior is away! Easy as you like. Gets a leg-stump half-volley and clips it neatly to the square leg boundary

England 12/0   MJ Prior 4* (1b 1x4)   B Lee 0.5-0-12-0

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, ah, lovely stuff. Full, wide half-volley asking to be dispatched and Prior loves a drive. He leant into it beautifully and stroked it to the cover rope

England 19/0   MJ Prior 10* (6b 2x4)   DE Bollinger 0.5-0-7-0

Lee to Strauss, FOUR, flash and four! Not entirely middled but Strauss really threw his arms at it and it cleared point and sped to the boundary

England 23/0   AJ Strauss 8* (9b 1x4)   B Lee 1.4-0-16-0

Lee to Prior, FOUR, Prior looks in good touch, driving elegantly and on the up, wide of mid-off and speeds to the boundary

England 32/1   MJ Prior 16* (16b 3x4)   B Lee 3-0-24-1

Watson to Trott, FOUR, Watson gives him a second opportunity and this time Trott makes no mistake, flicking it finer and it runs away to the square leg rope, beating the deep midwicket fielder

England 39/1   IJL Trott 9* (15b 1x4)   SR Watson 1-0-6-0

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, wow, shades of Haddin here as Prior gets down the wicket and gives himself room outside leg to smash this over mid-off and it lands just inside the rope

England 43/1   MJ Prior 21* (18b 4x4)   DE Bollinger 3.1-0-13-0

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, four more! Nicely done from Prior, gets his the room outside off that is his lifeblood, and thumps it through cover

England 47/1   MJ Prior 25* (19b 5x4)   DE Bollinger 3.2-0-17-0

Bollinger to Trott, FOUR, too full from Bollinger, and Trott times his off-side push ideally and the ball seems to gather pace on its way to the rope

England 52/1   IJL Trott 13* (16b 2x4)   DE Bollinger 3.4-0-22-0

Watson to Trott, FOUR, wrong line again from Watson, bowling on Trott's pads with fine leg up makes no sense and Trott's flick beats the man and runs away to the boundary

England 57/1   IJL Trott 18* (18b 3x4)   SR Watson 1.1-0-10-0

Lee to Prior, FOUR, 'Welcome back,' says Prior, charging down the track and cracking a short of length ball over mid-off for four

Hastings to Prior, FOUR, nothing wrong with the timing on that one, width offered and Prior slashes that over cover for four

England 87/1   MJ Prior 45* (36b 7x4)   JW Hastings 2.3-0-11-0

Smith to Prior, FOUR, that's a touch too short and Prior is quick to move back and cut the ball hard. He hit that in the air but wide of the fielder at point

England 128/1   MJ Prior 64* (53b 8x4 1x6)   SPD Smith 0.2-0-5-0

Doherty to Pietersen, FOUR, and here he goes! Lofting the ball into the vacant space at the long-on boundary. Pietersen came down and hit it cleanly

England 145/2   KP Pietersen 8* (5b 1x4)   XJ Doherty 4.2-0-22-0

Smith to Trott, FOUR, he's hit that superbly. The length was full, Trott got down on one knee and slog-swept the ball firmly towards the deep midwicket boundary. First four for him in 24 overs.

England 185/4   IJL Trott 76* (100b 4x4)   SPD Smith 5.4-0-29-3

Hastings to Trott, FOUR, Trott is down the wicket to greet Hastings and slapping a drive past mid-off, all along the ground to the boundary

England 198/4   IJL Trott 85* (106b 5x4)   JW Hastings 5.1-0-28-0

Hastings to Trott, FOUR, ah, lovely shot. Don't bowl on Trott's pads. It's a lesson Australians have refused to learn all tour. Flicked around the corner with perfect timing to bring up a boundary away from a hundred

England 214/4   IJL Trott 97* (114b 6x4)   JW Hastings 6.2-0-38-0

Hastings to Morgan, FOUR, poor ball, very short and down the leg side. Morgan gives this absolutely everything in his pull shot and it sails high to the fine leg rope

England 221/4   EJG Morgan 22* (28b 1x4)   JW Hastings 7-0-45-0

Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, too short from Bollinger, width too, Yardy upper-cuts with enough top edge to beat the sliding fielder at third man

England 239/6   MH Yardy 9* (7b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 7.2-0-38-0

Lee to Yardy, FOUR, ugly, but it does the trick. Yardy again giving himself plenty of room and the carve is toe-ended past the keeper to the third man rope

England 256/6   MH Yardy 15* (12b 2x4)   B Lee 7.5-0-67-1

Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, this Yardy innings is beginning to flow. Bollinger lands just short of a good length and Yardy is deep into his crease to shove it to the midwicket rope, timed it well

England 261/6   MH Yardy 20* (14b 3x4)   DE Bollinger 8.1-0-45-0

Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, Yardy stepped back and Bollinger responded but going full, but overcooked it and a full toss was slapped straight of deep midwicket for four

England 265/6   MH Yardy 24* (16b 4x4)   DE Bollinger 8.3-0-49-0

Bollinger to Collingwood, FOUR, ah, Collingwood middles another! Plays this really well. Down the wicket and eased, rather than slugged, to the long-on boundary

England 270/6   PD Collingwood 19* (18b 1x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 8.5-0-54-0

Hussey to Collingwood, FOUR, Collingwood lines up a sweep, smashes it hard straight to deep midwicket on the bounce. White makes an utter hash of the save and it goes through him to the rope

England 279/6   PD Collingwood 24* (23b 2x4 1x6)   DJ Hussey 2.1-0-7-2

Hussey to Yardy, FOUR, excellent shot from Yardy, really top stuff. Down the wicket and giving himself room to drive into a gap wide of long-off for four. This is turning into an unlikely gem of an innings

England 293/7   MH Yardy 33* (24b 5x4)   DJ Hussey 3.1-0-15-3

Hussey to Yardy, FOUR, Yardy is down the wicket, giving himself some room and drives excellently down the ground and times it well enough to run for four

England 298/8   MH Yardy 38* (26b 6x4)   DJ Hussey 3.4-0-20-4
