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

1.6

Bracken to Maddy, 1 run, bat and pad together defensively, and again they settle for a well-run single into the off side

England 12/0   NW Bracken 1-0-8-0
13.1

Bracken to Pietersen, OUT, the dangerman has gone, that's the biggest wicket yet, cleaned up with a full delivery as he stepped to leg, almost yorking himself

13.2

Bracken to Shah, no run, comes from wide of the crease, worked into the covers

Bracken to Shah, 1 run, on leg, Shah works his way over to play off his toes in front of square

England 100/5   NW Bracken 2-0-11-1
17.1

Bracken to Mascarenhas, no run, took the pace off the ball, just outside off, Mascarenhas goes to strike it but misses

Bracken to Mascarenhas, no run, slow again, dipping full delivery, Mascarenhas can only get over it and drive back down the track

Bracken to Mascarenhas, 1 run, taking the pace off is a good method, and this happens again, Mascarenhas driving into the covers to get off the mark

17.4
