4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, that's easy - for Chris Rogers - full on the pads, he clips it through mid-wicket which is vacant and the ball races away to the fence. Looks like the outfield is in fine shape

W

to Warner, out Lbw!! That is plumb. Pitched in-line, was heading towards middle and off and pinned Warner on the back foot, missed the inside edge and struck him just on the kneeroll. Warner was looking jittery at the crease in his short stay and has missed a straight ball. Out of hope he went for the review after Chris Gaffaney ruled it out. The third umpire after going through the process upholds the original decision. Warner lbw b 2(6)

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, dug in short outside off, Chris Rogers wants to play the pull stroke this time and gets it wide of Moeen Ali at fine leg, he can't get there and the ball races away. Much more intent in that stroke from Rogers

4

to S Smith, FOUR, half-volley and driven through cover for four. Easy for Smith as he strides forward and then times the drive to get a boundary

W

to S Smith, out Caught by Cook!! Big wicket and gets a wicket in his first over on his comeback. He is roaring in delight as his team-mates mob him. Pitched up outside off and moving away, Smith shuffled across to defend and got a thick outside edge, Buttler moved across but Cook at first slip kept his cool and took the catch near his bootlaces. That wasn't an easy catch but Cook made it look simple. Huge blow for Australia. S Smith c Cook b 7(18) [4s-1]

4

to Clarke, leg byes, FOUR, down leg and takes Clarke's pads as he misses the flick, beats Buttler's dive and races away. Given as leg byes

4

to Clarke, FOUR, "Cunning leave for four" says Nasser on air. That is some way to describe the kind of shot Clarke played. He was shaping to leave the inswinger, while he was taking the bat away, the ball takes the toe-end and wrong-foots Buttler who was going to his left to collect, the ball bisects him and Cook at first slip and runs away

4

to Clarke, FOUR, only three slips and that has gone where a fourth slip would've been. Full outside off, Clarke drives and gets a thick outside edge in between third slip and gully. Not sure whether it would've carried but needed an extra fielder. Races away through the vacant third man region

W

to Clarke, out Bowled!! Knocked him over! Clarke has been castled by an yorker, not sure whether the ball moved away past the outside edge but looks like Clarke has missed a straight yorker, the bat came down slightly late and the ball rattled the stumps. The out-of-form Clarke goes and England's dream hour continues. Clarke b 10(10) [4s-2]

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, "catch" went and the Englishmen after Chris Rogers played a walking drive in the air, wide of Stokes' right-hand at backward point. Just over Stokes' desperate attempt to catch. Stokes tried his best but it went over him. Lucky moment for Chris Rogers there

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, "wait on" was the initial call as Chris Rogers punched it to the right of Stokes at backward point, he went to his right and got a fingertip on it, copped one there and wrings his fingers immediately, the ball raced away to the fence

4

to Voges, FOUR, very full and driven through mid-off by Voges. Bairstow gives a spirited chase and dives head-first to pull it back but the ball beats him to the ropes, it was nicely played by Voges as he leant forward and pushed it past the bowler. Also great stuff by Bairstow who didn't give up the chase

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, very full from and Chris Rogers has put that away. Gets forward to that one and drives past the straight short mid-off, he didn't even dive for it was hit well and raced away past him. Chris Rogers is a strong driver in front of the wicket

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, emphatically put away. Short outside off, Chris Rogers was in position early and pulled it wide of the man at deep mid-wicket, he had no chance. The short ball didn't rise enough to trouble Chris Rogers

4

to Voges, FOUR, "Catch" was the cry as Voges pushed a drive just to the right of , the ball was past before he could react, misses the stumps at the other end and beats the chasing fielder

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, that's a nice way to round off the session. Very full and slanted in on the pads, Chris Rogers clips it through mid-wicket and the ball races away. All along the ground. That will be lunch on day 1 as Chris Rogers and Voges walk off

4

to Voges, FOUR, poor ball from , too straight and drifting onto Voges' pads, he shuffles across and flicks it fine, races away past the keeper and into the fence for a boundary

W

to Voges, out Caught by Buttler!! Indecision costs Voges dear! A nothing delivery from , short of a length and holding its line outside off, Voges was caught in two minds, makes a late call to let it go, he can't get his bat out of the way, the ball runs off the toe-end. Buttler dives across to his right and comes up with a neat catch. Voges is gutted as he walks back to the hut, a bright little partnership has been ended. Voges c Buttler b 16(34) [4s-3]

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, lovely shot, fraction too full and too wide from , Rogers leans forward and punches it on the up, finds the gap past cover and the fast outfield does the rest

W

to M Marsh, out Caught by Buttler!! Edged and caught! is slicing through Australia's middle-order here. This was full and wide outside off, looking to tempt Marsh into the booming drive, he can't resist and goes hard at the ball, the outside edge is found and it's a simple catch to the keeper. Marsh registers a duck, third wicket for and Australia have lost half their side. M Marsh c Buttler b 0(3)

W

to Nevill, out Bowled!! Horrible misjudgement from Nevill, is on a roll. This was the inswinger from , pitched just outside off and came back with the angle, Nevill was playing for one that went away, he shouldered arms to this one and hears the death rattle behind him, the off-stump is rattled. Fourth wicket for , the third in this session and Australia are in huge trouble now. Nevill b 2(8)

4

to Chris Rogers, FOUR, nicely played by Rogers, short of a length and well outside off, Rogers gets on top of the bounce and neatly guides it in the gap between third slip and gully

W

to Johnson, out Caught by Stokes!! strikes first ball after changing to round the wicket. A five wicket haul as well. This was full and wide outside off, Johnson pushed hard at that, he was playing well in front of his body. The edge is found, it goes low and to the left of Stokes at fifth slip. He does well to get his fingers underneath it and completes the catch. Australia are collapsing after lunch, the Edgbaston crowd is loving every moment of this. Johnson c Stokes b 3(6)

OT

to Chris Rogers, 2 runs, fifty for Rogers, he continues his good run, pitched up and holding its line outside off, Rogers leans forward and pushes it past the diving mid-off fielder, gets back for the second run

4

to Starc, FOUR, positive batting from Starc, tad fuller and wider outside off, Starc was looking to go over cover, ends up slicing it over cover-point, the ball has enough to beat the chasing fielder, a handy boundary for Australia

W

to Chris Rogers, out Lbw!! Rogers falls after a fighting 52. Australia have lost their 8th wicket. This was pitched up and nipped back into the left-hander, Rogers was shuffling across on the whip, missed and was struck on the back pad. The impact was in front of off and middle, it was going on to hit the top of middle. Three REDS and it's a simple call for umpire Dar. Rogers had to go for the review, but it simply vindicated the umpire. Chris Rogers lbw b 52(89) [4s-9]

4

to Hazlewood, FOUR, edged and four, this was full and very very wide outside off, Hazlewood had to reach out for the drive, gets a thick edge that flies over third slip, Hazlewood is off and running with a boundary

4

to Hazlewood, FOUR, fuller length delivery and well outside off, Hazlewood saw the width and went for the cover drive, gets a thick edge that flies over the catching cordon - behind the wicket. Another handy boundary for Hazlewood

W

to Starc, out Caught by Buttler!! Another moment of indecision, Starc has to walk back to the hut. This was pitched up outside off and held its line, Starc was in two minds, makes a late call to let it go. He is late in getting the bat out of the way, the ball grazes the bottom edge and it's another simple catch for Buttler. Australia are nine down and the end is nigh now. Starc c Buttler b 11(20) [4s-1]

4

to Hazlewood, FOUR, more runs for Australia, overpitched and well outside off, Hazlewood leans forward and drives it through the vacant mid-off region, the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

4

to Lyon, FOUR, lovely shot, overpitched and just outside off, Lyon leans forward, uses the bottom hand to good effect and whips it through mid-wicket for a boundary, that's a not a shot from a number 11 for sure

4

to Lyon, FOUR, this is a proper number 11 shot though, pitched up and nipping away slightly, Lyon went hard on the drive, gets a thick edge that flies over the slip cordon, no need to run for those

W

to Lyon, out Bowled!! Australia have been bundled out for 136. finishes with impressive figures of 6/47. This was pitched up and held its line outside off, Lyon went hard on the cover drive, gets a thick inside edge and the off-stump is clattered. is chuffed to bits as he leads his team off the ground. Lyon b 11(11) [4s-2]
