Billy Stanlake3032010.6653200
Michael Neser402115.2591000
3.4 to UT Khawaja, dragged on! Back of a length outside off, he goes for the pull, gets a bottom edge into the stumps. Not really short enough for the shot. 19/1
Peter Siddle402125.25121010
5.4 to CJ Ferguson, given lbw! Not sure about that. Ferguson going for the pull, the ball strikes him on the back leg. Height an issue? Were there two noises? Replay shows it's going over. 38/2
19.3 to DR Sams, Bowled him! Brilliant yorker. Fractionally slower at 132kph, it dipped a touch and was right on the money, got under Sams' bat as he tried to go over midwicket and the stumps lit it. 143/7
Wes Agar4043110.75124340
18.2 to CH Morris, caught behind! Plan was obvious. Everything was going to be wide. Morris never adjusted. He stayed leg side trying to loft over cover, it was too far from him, got a thin edge through to Carey and it's an easy catch. 139/6
Rashid Khan402416.00100200
11.1 to AD Hales, leading edge caught at point! Hales yelled "oh no!". It was a full leg break wide of off, Hales maybe thought it was a wrong un, he tried to drive to long on, closed the face, it flew off the leading edge to backward point and it's an easy catch. 89/3
Travis Head10919.0011000
13.1 to AI Ross, holes out to deep midwicket! Ross wanted to target Head first ball, it was a step hit in his arc, he tried to launch over deep midwicket but got under it and skied it high into the deep, Wells camps under it and takes a good catch. 100/4

Daniel Sams402636.5051010
0.6 to PD Salt, well taken at mid-on! That's big. Very well bowled, a slower ball, Salt went to turn it into the on side and just ended up chipping to the right of mid-on. Alex Hales made good ground to hold a vital catch. 7/1
18.2 to MG Neser, top edge and Nair hangs on at short fine! Just! Slower ball, Neser tried to launch over deep square, the top edge went straight to short fine, Nair was under it but never looked confident, it dipped away from him late, he dived and held on!. 135/7
18.4 to PM Siddle, chipped to mid off! 113kph, slower ball wide of off, he backed away too far and just chipped it off the toe to mid off and it's an easy catch for Hales. 136/8
Jonathan Cook401624.00141000
9.1 to TM Head, dragged on! Alex Ross was just talking about getting these left handers cutting. Back of a length, Head aims to play square and drags into his stumps. 65/3
15.2 to Rashid Khan, holes out to deep square! Rashid tried to go straight away. He took on the slog sweep but it was a leg break that bounced a touch, he gets a top edge high to deep forward square and Green on as the substitute takes the catch 10m from the rope. 115/5
Arjun Nair201407.0031000
Brendan Doggett2025012.5013010
Chris Tremain4040110.0086040
4.4 to J Weatherald, big top edge, taken at cover! Silence around the ground. Weatherald goes for the pull against a shorter delivery, extra pace, goes straight up off a top edge and Ferguson just about settles under it. 35/2
Chris Morris402225.50123000
16.3 to MW Short, lbw! Good length skidding through straight, he's pinned on the crease, hit above the knee roll deep in the crease and it's given! Height the only issue like Ferguson's earlier. Otherwise it looked very good. 117/6
19.1 to JW Wells, caught behind! Is that the game?! 135kph, short and wide, pace on, he tried to thrash a cut, it was in his wheelhouse, he just got a thin edge as it bounced a touch and Lenton does the rest!. 139/9
