    7.6 oh no! A comedy of errors from both teams, and the end result is a run-out, but who has to go? Trott pushed to midwicket, where there was a misfield by Hussey, who knocks it down to mid-on, where Doherty underarmed to the bowler's end and missed the stumps - but by this stage Strauss had turned back halfway through the single, and both batsmen were racing to the bowler's end. So the miss was backed up by Clarke, who threw to Haddin, who took the bails off with both batsmen at the other end of the pitch. Trott has beaten Strauss home, so Strauss has to go! 38/2
    0.5 Prior is gone in the first over! Ah, the Prior opening experiment is really not working for England. Lee has angled one back in and Prior is struck on the pad, low down, and given out. He asks for a review but that is plumb. He's gone! 1/1
    not out
    12.6 gone! Good return catch from Watson! Bell tried to work it from outside off through the leg side, a-la Trott, but got a leading edge and Watson hurled himself to his left to take a very sharp catch 61/3
    24.4 oh no! Filthy long hop is nailed to midwicket where Clarke holds a fine catch. Morgan has fallen to some awful deliveries this series. Just as he was looking good he's smashed a pull shot straight to midwicket 118/4
    25.1 Doherty strikes! Collingwood's miserable run of form continues. This is pretty awful, he's missed a straight ball. Just played down the line of middle, feet stuck to the ground, and it hit off stump 119/5
    27.4 Yardy's gone. Soft dismissal, simple dismissal. He edged down the wicket and chipped it gently back to Doherty 130/6
    40.3 that's the end of Wright, he got a wider one and chased it with a big drive but gets a thin edge through to Haddin, Hastings gets the wicket he's been looking for 179/7
    44.5 there's Lee's second wicket, and Woakes again was trying to steer it to third man but this ball bounce more than he expected and nipped away a touch, he's got an edge through to Haddin 199/8
    46.4 and Shahzad is gone, Lee gets his third! Shahzad was trying to go over the top and make use of the Powerplay, he's lifted it towards mid-off and White didn't have to move far to his left to make the catch 208/9
    47.6 goodness me, this is shocking. Tremlett has run himself out in dreadful fashion. Pushed into the off side for what should have been an easy single. Tremlett dawdled, barely stretched to run his bat in. In the end his bat was over the line but in the air when the bails came off. Not even schoolboy that. 214/10

    1.4 this time he's gone! Same spot, full and nipped back a touch. Watson aimed a booming drive but it was through that gate and pinged the top of off. Tremlett is fired up and sends Watson on his way 10/1
    20.6 massive wicket! Huge wicket for England as Haddin tries to drive Collingwood over the boundary but he's only managed to chip it to long-on, where Woakes takes a reasonably straightforward catch 100/5
    4.3 massive appeal as Marsh is struck on the pad to a full ball. Eventually given out but Marsh has reviewed it... No inside edge, struck in front and hitting middle. So, both centurions have gone now. That stirs the pot! 27/2
    10.6 this time Clarke has gone and Woakes has his first ODI wicket! Poor Clarke just can't revive his fortunes. Full ball on his pads and he's whipped it straight to Yardy at short midwicket who needed three attempts to juggle and catch it 59/3
    18.2 White is gone! Collingwood strikes! Angling the ball in, he strikes White on the pad and Reiffel gives him out. White wants a review - there were two noises and height looked like it would be an issue, but the replays show that hit both pads, and was clipping the top of leg stump, so the decision stands 92/4
    not out
    35.6 and get's it! Tremlett strikes! Short ball gets a touch of extra bounce, Smith tried to flap a pull shot and top-edged it horribly, went straight up in the air, Tremlett wanted none of it and Yardy came in from mid-off to take the chance. 'Just what the doctor ordered!' 163/6
