James Anderson803023.75343040
13.1 to Mohammad Ashraful, Super start, good line and length, Ashraful spars at one that bounced and Nixon holds an oh-so-simple catch. Steve Bucknor doesn't even have to delay and decide as Ashraful is quickly on his way. 47/5
15.2 to Aftab Ahmed, Aftab's brief cameo ends, a good-length delivery which he looks to drive, but he only succeeds in getting a thickish edge and Nixon does the rest. 65/6
Sajid Mahmood8.202733.24374020
1.3 to Tamim Iqbal, and he has! Mahmood strikes! That one's banged in with plenty of pace and Tamim has no answer to that one which gets very, very big on him, he sways back, trying to sway away from the ball, but he can only poke the face of the bat towards the vacant fifth slip where Collingwood does well, running round from gully. 9/1
7.4 to Shahriar Nafees, and this time Mahmood does take his second wicket. Nafees went to drive that one and Nixon only got a glove on it, but he did parry it volleyball-like over to Strauss at second slip who clung on without fuss. 26/3
37.2 to Syed Rasel, done by the bounce, Rasel fends at the ball as it gets big on him and the edge flies right into Andrew Flintoff's breadbasket at first slip. 143/10
Andrew Flintoff803814.75343142
10.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur goes right back and offers a very correct backward-defensive stroke, but he plays down the wrong line and the ball clatters into the top of his middle and off stumps. 40/4
Monty Panesar722533.57293000
28.6 to Mashrafe Mortaza, and he does! Great ball from Panesar, straight and tempting the batsman to slog across the line to long-on. He misses it completely and the ball knocks back off stump. 112/7
30.4 to Mohammad Rafique, tossed up, Rafique looks to hit him back over the top but doesn't really get hold of it and Andrew Strauss, halfway in from long-off boundary, catches the ball above his head shuffling backwards. Panesar celebrates as if he had just snared Tendulkar .... 113/8
36.4 to Abdur Razzak, Razzak chances his arm once too often, shaping to slam the ball over long-on but it goes high and nowhere, Collingwood waits and takes a simple catch at short midwicket. 137/9

Mashrafe Mortaza8.532803.16433130
Syed Rasel1032522.50472000
3.3 to IR Bell, speaking of fight - England have lost a wicket! Bell slices that drive to point - looking to drive it much, much straighter, and that was an excellent diving catch there. 7/1
13.3 to AJ Strauss, Strauss falls over as he shapes to hit across the line and misses, a loud, long, almost pleading, appeal from Rasel ... Bucknor takes an age, even by his standards, before raising his finger. 48/2
Abdur Razzak1013023.00413000
20.5 to MP Vaughan, goes he softly into the night. Oh dear, swept that one up and a top edge went high and higher and was taken easily by his opposing captain behind square. 70/3
22.6 to KP Pietersen, down the track, and that's a great catch at midwicket - just snapped up by Farhad - the ball speared in faster and that's a huge wicket. 79/4
Mohammad Rafique1033323.30462220
31.2 to A Flintoff, we still have a game here ... Flintoff barely moves his feet and is completely undone by the arm ball and bowled neck and crop. A great player but he looked as impotent as a club No. 11 there. He throws his head back and looks to the heavens .... 110/5
31.6 to RS Bopara, Bopara plays the ball into the ground and via the back of his boot into his stumps ... the fielding side go wild, as well they might, and the half-full ground is a buzz. 110/6
