Day 4
  • Cork takes a hat-trick in the very first over of the day. This is the 22nd hat-trick in test cricket.
  • Lara scores the first century of the series for either side.
  • RA Smith retired hurt at 47/3 (fractured cheek bone after being struck by a ball from Bishop)
  • Streakers (male and female) interrupt the match very often.
Day 3
  • Cork unsettles the bail and runs 4 but the fielders do not notice this and do not appeal. He went on to score 56 not out.
  • Hooper stayed off from the field because of an injured finger and so could not bat above no. 7.
Day 2
  • Tea taken early due to rain.
  • Play abandoned 15 mins after scheduled close due to bad light with 5 overs remaining.
Day 1
  • Tea was taken 20 minutes early because the sun's reflection of the roof of a greenhouse was disturbing the batsmen.
  • RC Russell got his 100th Test dismissal when he caught Bishop.
  • Crawley was dismissed in the final over of the day.
