Woakes to Watson, no run, this jags back and stays a bit low, Watson is hit on the pad trying to pull and Dharmasena raises his finger.

119.3

Woakes to Faulkner, OUT, goes hard again, top-edged ... and Trott takes a super catch running round from deep backward square! Chris Woakes has his first Test wicket, fellow debutant James Faulkner the victim - decent little cameo, playing for the team but got a bit cramped for room trying to hit across the line
