10,11,12,13,14 July 2013 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Pattinson to Cook, OUT, gone! Pattinson strikes. Edges a loose drive to Haddin. Full outside off stump, Cook will be angry that he was drawn into playing. Pattinson lets out a roar of delight, he's got the man who scored 766 runs the last time these sides met in the Ashes. After that wayward first over he's caused a few problems

AN Cook c †Haddin b Pattinson 13 (41m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 27/1   JE Root 12* (28b 3x4)   JL Pattinson 5-2-13-1

Siddle to Root, OUT, got him! The yorker does the job! Siddle gets his line right first ball from this end and the length is spot-on as well. Perhaps just a little hint of swing away and Root plays the wrong line, losing his off stump.

JE Root b Siddle 30 (99m 64b 6x4 0x6) SR: 46.87

England 78/2   IJL Trott 28* (38b 6x4)   PM Siddle 4.1-0-27-1

Siddle to Pietersen, OUT, massive moment! Pietersen edges to second slip. Poor stroke. Playing away from his body again, it was a tighter line and shaped away, taking the edge to second slip

KP Pietersen c Clarke b Siddle 14 (26m 23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.86

England 102/3   IJL Trott 37* (53b 8x4)   PM Siddle 5.3-0-32-2

Siddle to Trott, OUT, Siddle again! What a day he's having. Crucial moment. Very un-Trott like as he goes for a booming drive to a wide delivery and gets an inside edge which demolishes his stumps. Another poor shot from an England batsman

IJL Trott b Siddle 48 (119m 80b 9x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 124/4   IR Bell 4* (23b 1x4)   PM Siddle 9.5-2-41-3

Siddle to Bell, OUT, gone! Siddle strikes again in the first over of a spell! That's the third time this innings he's done that. Beautiful ball as well - angles in and then curves away from Bell, whose thick outside edge is taken by Watson at first slip.

IR Bell c Watson b Siddle 25 (93m 63b 6x4 0x6) SR: 39.68

England 178/5   JM Bairstow 31* (33b 6x4)   PM Siddle 11.5-3-49-4

Siddle to Prior, OUT, Siddle has five! That's not his best ball of the day, but Prior has authored his own downfall with a terrible shot. Short and wide outside off, Prior's eyes have lit up and he's gone the big cut but straight to the man at point. It's Phil Hughes, and he takes the catch above his head.

MJ Prior c Hughes b Siddle 1 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

England 180/6   JM Bairstow 32* (35b 6x4)   PM Siddle 12.2-3-49-5

Pattinson to Broad, OUT, all the good work undone. A bit dim from Broad who gets sucked in by a short ball which he top edges and Pattinson himself steadies under the catch on the on side

SCJ Broad c & b Pattinson 24 (32m 30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

England 213/7   JM Bairstow 37* (50b 7x4)   JL Pattinson 15.5-2-67-2

Starc to Bairstow, OUT, castled! Now it's reward for Starc. Full at off stump, Bairstow plays around it and the pole flies backwards. Wasn't quite a yorker, Bairstow closed the face as he aimed for the leg side. Had played straight for so much of his innings

JM Bairstow b Starc 37 (103m 51b 7x4 0x6) SR: 72.54

England 213/8   GP Swann 0* (1b)   MA Starc 16.1-4-54-1

Starc to Finn, OUT, first ball! Playing away from his body, edges through to Haddin. Finn reviews, thinking he has hit the ground, but replays quickly confirmed the nick.

ST Finn c †Haddin b Starc 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 213/9   GP Swann 0* (1b)   MA Starc 16.2-4-54-2

Pattinson to Swann, OUT, that's a pretty fitting way to end the innings, Swann just prods a catch to cover from a short of a length delivery that he poked at with no intent at all

GP Swann c Hughes b Pattinson 1 (16m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

England 215/10   JM Anderson 1* (6b)   JL Pattinson 17-2-69-3
