    4.1 gone! O'Brien strikes on his first ball! Nothing delivery, shortish and on leg stump, Lumb whipped it firmly but the giant Boyd Rankin intercepted with a good low catch at short fine leg 24/1
    5.3 well, this is close! Kieswetter whips a fullish ball to short midwicket and sets off for a suicidal single, but a throw zips in in a flash, leaving him sprawling and diving back in, very very close, the toe end of the bat could be in by a frame, but the bat looks to have bounced up.... it's probably out... and given! 32/2
    9.4 Pietersen departs! Massive moment for Ireland! Can you believe it? Short ball and Pietersen nailed his pull shot straight to the man at deep square. Just like yesterday 49/4
    5.6 gone! Johnston strikes! Ireland are all over England here! Another ball into the off-stump channel, Collingwood pushed at it, and it flew to Botha at slip, who this time makes no mistake. Well, well, well 32/3
    19.3 can't get it away this time, ends a crucial and excellent innings from Morgan, another slower ball, Morgan tries to smash it over long on but can't generate the power and it caught on the long on boundary 115/7
    16.2 Rankin does the trick! It was a full toss, Wright skipped down the track and leg side of the ball, normally he would back himself to get all of it, but in the end it came off the toe end to mid off where Porterfield held a decent catch over his head 90/5
    18.4 well you sensed that was coming, Bresnan goes for another big heave, can't connect cleanly and it goes straight to long off, importantly it's another dotball 109/6

    19.5 Swann wanders down the wicket, and clips it down to long on, Yardy tries to come back for the second but a brilliant direct-hit beats him, he had to go for it, but it was brilliant fielding 118/8
