  • 61.3 Kumble to Strauss, FOUR, short and wide outside the off stump, Strauss rocks back but cuts late and the ball races away to the third man fence, well played

  • 63.3 Kumble to Pietersen, FOUR, googly, slightly short and on the pads, Pietersen quickly gets into position and whips it away to the square leg fence, just dismissed it from his presence

  • 64.4 Patel to Strauss, FOUR, short ball, angled in from outside the off stump, Strauss goes for the hook and the ball steeples off the top edge, luckily for him the fielder at fine leg is square and the ball falls safely in the deep

  • 66.1 Pathan to Strauss, FOUR, strays on to middle and leg, gentle loosener, Strauss moves across a bit and clips it away to the fine leg fence, Pathan continues to be expensive!

  • 66.3 Pathan to Strauss, FOUR, Pathan continues to struggle! full toss on the stumps, yorker gone wrong? Strauss moves across and flicks it away to the vacant fine leg fence, easy picking

  • 67.1 Kumble to Pietersen, FOUR, good line and length delivery, Pietersen comes down the track and hammers it straight past the fielder at mid-off, powerful shot

  • 72.2 Pathan to Strauss, FOUR, full and on the stumps, Strauss moves forward and across and drives it away through midwicket, no stopping that

  • 74.5 Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, good line and length, Pietersen pushes forward to drive, ball clips the edge and rockets away to the third man fence, lucky runs

  • 76.4 Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, good length but wide of the off stump, Pietersen drives on the up, ball clips the edge and races away to the third man fence, went right into the gap between gully and slip, it's all going England's way

  • 78.4 Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, short rising delivery, coming in with the angle, Pietersen goes for the pull and this time the top-edge goes finer, fine leg had no chace of cutting it off, Santh bit unlucky there

  • 81.5 Harbhajan Singh to Flintoff, FOUR, off the mark in style! full and wide outside the off stump, Flintoff gets forward and drives it away to the cover fence, excellent timing and placement

  • 84.6 Patel to Collingwood, FOUR, full and drifting onto middle and leg stump line, Collingwood pushes forward and drills it away well wide of the fielder at mid-on, excellent shot

  • 86.3 Patel to Flintoff, FOUR, short ball, drifting onto middle and leg, Flintoff quickly gets into a good position and jabs it away to the fine leg fence, diving effort from Pathan in the deep ends in vain
