Adam Milne2082421.201111
97b to BA Raine, yorker, knocked him over! 92mph, crashing into the base of off stump. Masterclass from Milne. Raine was beaten all ends up. You could hear a pin drop at Headingley. This innings has nose-dived. 140/6
98b to MD Fisher, banged in, slapped straight to extra cover! Milne is on a hat-trick. Cross-batted straight to Smeed. Expecting the yorker and swatted at the back-of-a-length ball. 140/7

Pat Brown502605.202300
Imran Tahir2071800.900100
Benny Howell2071820.900100
69b to JA Thompson, holes out to long-off! Thompson's power wasn't enough this time. This nipped in like a legcutter, meaning less room for Thompson to free his arms. Allen settles under it, moving to his left. 114/3
87b to JA Simpson, thick outside edge flies to short third! Looked like a back-of-the-hander, which Simpson didn't pick. He backed away, and it skewed away to Pennington on the 45. 133/5
Liam Livingstone2062531.251110
54b to CA Lynn, legbreak, thick outside edge flies straight to short third! Lynn didn't read the spin away from him, trying to swing him away over the leg side, and this was a simple chance for Pennington to snaffle. Livingstone makes the breakthrough. 95/1
59b to DJ Willey, tossed up, full and straight, straight up... Livingstone settles underneath it! Captain gets captain. Looking to go over long-on again, but a huge skier via the top edge. Livingstone ambles around, settles underneath it, and takes a simple chance. 103/2
73b to DJ Vilas, tossed up, full outside off, and Abell takes an excellent catch at point! Good fightback by Phoenix here, and Livingstone has three wickets. Slapped away through the off side but Abell dived to his right to take a smart grab. 118/4

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Will Smeed, 4b), 2-112 (Finn Allen, 55b)
David Willey1032612.601310
4b to WCF Smeed, dragged on first ball! Smeed heads straight off, wicket for Willey in the opening set. Slanted across from over the wicket and the young gun couldn't resist trying to pull the trigger, but an angled bat sent an inside edge bouncing up to dislodge the leg bail. 6/1
Callum Parkinson2043611.801320
55b to FH Allen, slows it up, spins this away, stumped! Parkinson breaks the stand, punches the air - possibly out of relief, as much as anything. Allen danced down and was beaten in the flight, he'll head off but his job's about done. 112/2
