16.2 to LJ Wright, well held! Wright tries to get a low full toss over mid-off, but Johnson times his leap to perfection and holds it two hands, ensuring he doesn't let it spill as he thuds into the ground. 157/2
18.6 to AD Hales, still no hundred for England...gets another low full toss which he clouts towards the bottom of the bat and is well taken, low at long-on. 187/3
Fawad Ahmed402536.2591100
11.2 to MJ Lumb, first international wicket! Lumb goes for a slog sweep, the ball goes straight up in the air then floats behind the stumps on the breeze. Wade turns, trots back and settles under the catch. Ahmed is on the ledger. 111/1
19.1 to JC Buttler, well bowled! lovely delivery from Ahmed, bravely flighted up. It grips and spins past Buttler's prod as he just tried to dab it into the off side. 187/4
19.4 to EJG Morgan, gone this time, with a googly, Morgan hits it firmly but without the height or distance and picks out deep midwicket. 194/5

Steven Finn403017.50141310
18.5 to NM Coulter-Nile, the short ball works, down at 75mph, and it takes the top edge to short fine-leg...Finn came back very well after those two sixes. 162/9
Stuart Broad302719.0094100
1.2 to AJ Finch, swats across the line, top-edged and the ball loops tamely to mid-on! England have slain the beast! Everyone was expecting him to go after the bowlers again and Finch is always going to live and die by the sword. Although it was more like the pen knife this time... Maybe not quite short enough to pull and Broad gets him. 8/1
Jade Dernbach402335.75120121
12.6 to DA Warner, gone this time! It hasn't proved costly, though. Warner slices a short delivery flat out to deep cover where Hales held the catch coming in off the boundary. 111/4
17.2 to GJ Maxwell, that's the end of his fun. He flicks a low full toss straight down the throat of deep square-leg who barely had to take a step either way. 148/7
17.3 to JP Faulkner, what a catch! Superb from Morgan at backward point. It was a very sharp bouncer, Faulkner was in a horrid tangle as he tried to pull. Comes off the shoulder of the bat and it appeared it would fly just over Morgan, but he turned then pulled out a big leap to hold the catch. 148/8
Danny Briggs302528.3383110
13.4 to GJ Bailey, he gets one! Bailey misses his sweep and (umpire) Bailey gives the decision. Didn't look dead straight. Well, that was dead straight. Hawk Eye shows hitting middle and leg full on.. 113/5
15.1 to MS Wade, and another...round the wicket, a quicker delivery skids through and beats Wade's attempt at a pull. 123/6
Joe Root302518.3361110
9.6 to SE Marsh, bowled him, hitting across the line again! Marsh maybe didn't need to go big again in that over but he was feeling the pressure - he missed and Root hit, England break the stand. 82/3
