Trott to Haddin, 1 run, full length on off stump, Haddin is hurried into coming forward, tucks it into midwicket and they take a single to bring up the fifty partnership


Trott to Smith, no run, a little seam movement in and Smith gets an inside edge into the front pad playing forward on off stump


Trott to Smith, no run, much wider line and left alone


Trott to Smith, no run, good length just outside off, Smith forward and blocking to cover


Trott to Smith, no run, decent line and length again, Smith forward to block once again


Trott to Smith, no run, floaty full delivery a foot wide of off stump, driven at but only rolled to cover

Australia 370/5   IJL Trott 1-0-1-0

Trott to Smith, SIX, length ball on off stump and Smith drives him down the ground, in fact it's a great shot, up and over and all the way! Smith goes to his maiden Test hundred with an outrageous lofted drive, well played that man, ballsy way to bring it up, fair play man


Trott to Smith, no run, wider and full and left alone


Trott to Smith, no run, length two feet wide of off stump and ignored


Trott to Smith, 1 run, played forward just outside off, a little unsure in the stroke, gets a thick inside edge behind square leg


Trott to Haddin, OUT, full ball a foot outside off, Haddin tries to stay leg side of it and drags it on. No really the right ball to try to dab away off the back foot because it was too full. He didn't even try to play it like a late cut, which might have been better, thick bottom edge into the base of middle and off stumps

BJ Haddin b Trott 30 (88m 57b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.63


Trott to Faulkner, no run, full on off stump, played forward and pushed up the wicket

Australia 385/6   IJL Trott 2-0-8-1

Trott to Faulkner, no run, very full and very wide, totally ignored and it kicks out of the popping crease to slip


Trott to Faulkner, 1 run, forward on off stump, dropped into the covers and they get a rather cheap single, not the best fielding, Joe Root caught napping there


Trott to Smith, 3 runs, another lovely drive from Smith, timed well through extra-cover, Root in the action again and this time does well running around from deep cover, sliding and saving four and then returning the ball to prevent them running four


Trott to Faulkner, no run, full ball a foot wide of off stump, driven without timing to cover


Trott to Faulkner, no run, too wide to induce a stroke


Trott to Faulkner, no run, tight off stump line, pushed forward and rolled towards point

Australia 393/6   IJL Trott 3-0-12-1
