Jackson Bird2878533.0313513000
82.2 to NLJ Browne, Lovely length with the new ball, swinging back in and clean through Browne as he loses his off stump. Fine knock. 220/1
88.4 to AN Cook, A rare error from Cook as he drives loosely outside off, and feathers a nick to the keeper. 241/2
102.3 to T Westley, extra lift off the deck outside off, hint of away movement, and a firm snick to the keeper as Westley is lured outside his eyeline! Bird strikes again, on a pitch that seems livelier this morning. 288/5
Matt Milnes2978803.031298000
Nathan Gilchrist2739833.621219106
93.5 to JA Porter, slides onto the back foot, pinned by one that keeps low, and Porter receives the slowest of slow deaths from the umpire. 262/4

Matt Quinn2839023.2112111000
92.5 to DW Lawrence, shoulders arms as the ball nips back, and up goes the finger! A short stay for Lawrence. 257/3
145.1 to AJA Wheater, round the wicket, pushed across Wheater, who has a hack with flat feet and chops onto his own stumps. 447/7
Tawanda Muyeye17.516813.81653210
158.5 to MJJ Critchley, attempted back-foot dab, opening the face for a run through third man, and it's all over for Critchley as he under-edges onto his middle stump. 514/10
