0.2

Lee to Prior, no run, back of a length, on off stump, Prior half forward and defends to point

0.3

Lee to Prior, no run, fuller, driven but not timed, his top hand comes off the bat as he plays the stroke and it dribbles to mid-off

0.4

Lee to Prior, no run, wider, 85mph, no shot offered

0.5

Lee to Prior, 1 run, dropped into the leg side, a quick single, Maddy, the non striker, ran in a straight line and Lee swerved across the pitch and the two collided ... Maddy got home safely and it was Lee who was left on the turf

England 2/0   MJ Prior 1* (4b)
1.1

Bracken to Prior, no run, wide, slanted across Prior, a swing and a mess and our lipreading expert points out he said something very uncouth

1.2

Bracken to Prior, no run, on the button, blocked into the leg side but the field are wise to that after two singles in the last over and they swoop

1.3

Bracken to Prior, SIX, a skip down the pitch and Prior smashes that for six over extra cover ... a shimmy to leg as well and that flew

1.4

Bracken to Prior, no run, wristy flick to backward point who makes a scrambling stop

1.5

Bracken to Prior, 1 run, plopped into the covers, soft hands so the ball dribbles no more than ten yards, and that allows a comfortable single

England 11/0   MJ Prior 8* (9b 1x6)
2.6

Lee to Prior, no run, wide and a flamboyant drive which Prior gets nowhere near

England 17/0   MJ Prior 8* (10b 1x6)
3.2

Clark to Prior, FOUR, Prior gives Clark the charge and whips the ball over short fine leg ... once it was over him it was always four

3.3

Clark to Prior, no run, slower ball, Prior goes for a mow and misses

3.4

Clark to Prior, 1 run, slower again, placed to the left of a diving cover but third man in with speed and that prevents the second

3.6

Clark to Prior, 1 run, Prior turns the ball off his hips square on the leg side, fine leg round to collect

England 25/0   MJ Prior 14* (14b 1x4 1x6)
4.1

Johnson to Prior, 2 runs, again Prior gives the charge and slashes it over the cover ring, not much power and Symonds fields a few yards inside the rope

4.2

Johnson to Prior, 1 run, worked square on the leg side

4.5

Johnson to Prior, OUT, a charge too far, Prior gets cramped as Johnson follows him and the ball, which hit high up on the bat, hangs for a long time before falling to Bracken at wide mid-on

MJ Prior c Bracken b Johnson 17 (19m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

England 29/1   MJ Prior 17 (17b 1x4 1x6)
