2.1

Lee to Strauss, no run, just a bit of room outside off, and Strauss shapes up for his favouite cut shot, but ends up hitting the ball into the ground

2.2

Lee to Strauss, 3 runs, almost as if he was expecting the short delivery, Strauss rocks back and pulls it in a flash over midwicket, but could not get enough on the shot to clear the ropes, and Johnson running in from deep square leg puts in a dive to save a run

2.3

Lee to Prior, no run, another quick short one from Lee arrives, and Prior gets into a bit of a tangle as he looks to ride the bounce, and ends up jabbing at the delivery that rears up at his throat, fortunately for him, it goes in no man's land

2.5

Lee to Prior, no run, now he opens the face a touch to drive to short extra cover
