Daniel Worrall403418.50115100
13.2 to SW Billings, low full toss on fifth stump, tries to heave this over midwicket and Short takes a head high catch with a bunny hop while keeping his feet inside the rope on this occasion unlike a few overs earlier.. 98/3
George Garton3047015.6663500
Peter Siddle4047111.7551420
9.3 to BCJ Cutting, nicks off to the wicket-keeper! Slower ball that Cutting tried to go very hard at. Gets a thick edge that loops through to the wicketkeeper, and Siddle's slightly made up for that costly first over. 62/2
Fawad Ahmed402215.5071000
4.3 to M Gilkes, chips it straight to long on. Bit of a tame dismissal. A couple of dot balls and Gilkes went for a shot that was never really on, and Short grasps a simple chance. 37/1

Saqib Mahmood403528.75104110
2.6 to MW Short, follows up by smashing him on the knee roll, and the umpire raises the finger!. It's absolutely dead straight, and that looks as plumb as it gets. 23/1
10.6 to MT Renshaw, full on off at 141 kph, tries to drive over mid-off but skews this off the toe and it floats to Green charging to his right along the ring who takes this catch in stride reaching to his right at waist height.. 91/2
Daniel Sams403348.2563020
11.3 to J Weatherald, slower bouncer short and wide at 115 kph on sixth stump, goes to pull this and skews a top-edge that flutters gently to Green again on the ring at mid-off. This time just shuffles forward a few steps and waits for it to come down into his hands at chest height.. 96/3
15.3 to GHS Garton, slower wide bouncer again, this time another mistimed pull and it results in a top edge swirling to short fine leg. Simple catch on the ring for Mahmood at chest height.. 119/5
19.2 to JW Wells, full and wide outside off, goes to drive this over cover and it carries all the way to the sweeper. McAndrew spilled a diving effort earlier but this time steadies himself to take the catch before leaving his feet on an effort tumbling forward.. 161/6
19.4 to Rashid Khan, slower bouncer at 121 kph on middle, Rashid goes to pull and a thick top edge flutters to Billings behind the stumps.. 162/7
