View dismissal MA Ouma c Collingwood b Anderson 13 46 45 1 0 28.88
10.1 swinging into the batsman, who pushes at it off the back foot to Collingwood at mid-on. A shimmy to his right, and he takes the simplest of catches 35/2
View dismissal RD Shah b Anderson 4 21 11 0 0 36.36
4.5 gone! Well, Shah should've come forward there. Back in his crease, the ball kept low and he just couldn't get his bat down in time 10/1
View dismissal AO Suji c Vaughan b Mahmood 14 61 29 2 0 48.27
17.4 well, sad to say that was a bit inevitable - Suji not really hitting through the cover-drive on his front foot and popping that one, softly, to the man in at cover 73/3
View dismissal SO Tikolo* b Flintoff 76 131 97 8 0 78.35
40.2 brilliant reverse-swinging yorker does him. As he went back past him, the bowler patted him on the back and said well batted. And indeed it was 165/8
View dismissal T Mishra b Collingwood 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
18.5 a loose shot, on one knee and chops that one right into his stumps and there are some big celebrations there for Collingwood, the two-handed hop 74/4
View dismissal CO Obuya run out (Bopara/Panesar) 10 20 13 2 0 76.92
23.3 Panesar to Tikolo, rapped on the pads, the ball bobbles out past slip and Obuya calls Tikolo through. But he won't run! Obuya's stranded - in comes the throw...and Monty whips off the bails. Dreadful cricket, and Obuya is furious 99/5
View dismissal TM Odoyo lbw b Flintoff 4 14 11 0 0 36.36
26.5 half-an-appeal, and it's out! What a bizarre shout for lbw. Angling into the batsman - big inswing, which probably caused the doubt in Flintoff's appeal who, like us, perhaps thought it was drifting down leg. But mid-appeal, he ramped it up to 11 and roared the question with fervour. And up went the finger 112/6
View dismissal JK Kamande b Collingwood 17 31 28 2 0 60.71
36.4 steps back to give himself room to the slower ball, but the offcutter hits off stump with the batsman swinging across the line 151/7
View dismissal LN Onyango run out (†Nixon) 10 27 18 0 0 55.55
42.6 Flintoff to Varaiya, excellent work from Nixon - the batsman stabbing behind and just to say getting bat on it, setting off for the run. Nixon goes down on one knee and throws down the stumps from a good ten metres 177/10
View dismissal PJ Ongondo run out (Vaughan) 3 2 3 0 0 100.00
41.2 from Mahmood, dabbed down to gully, gets halfway down the track and realises he's got to get back - there's an underarm throw from Vaughan, very very tidy indeed, and that's gone 170/9

View dismissal EC Joyce b Tikolo 75 122 90 9 1 83.33
27.6 gone! Terrific delivery which somehow crept through Joyce's defence...and it was the doosra! His beaming smile suggested as much, and the replays confirm it turned into the left-hander 155/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Obuya b Ongondo 1 12 4 0 0 25.00
3.1 Gone! No easy pickings for Vaughan today. The ball spat up at him and all Vaughan could do was fend it, meekly, to Obuya at backward point who dived to his left and took an excellent, low catch 12/1
View dismissal IR Bell c sub (RL Bhudia) b Odoyo 16 24 18 2 0 88.88
8.4 a skip down the pitch, trying to loft him over mid-off, but he can't quite get on top of it and smacks it straight to mid-off. Lazy, complacent stroke 52/2
