Over 49.6 PM Siddle bowls a slower one to Joe Root, out Caught and Bowled!! Full delivery around off, Root presses forward and drives it straight back, he was a bit early into the shot and hence it was uppish, Siddle stuck his right hand out and caught it.

Over 62.1 JL Pattinson bowls a good length delivery to Joe Denly, out Lbw!! The ball swung in sharply, went past his drive and rapped him on the back foot. The impact was around off and it would have ratted the middle and leg stumps. 

Over 65.4 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to JC Buttler, out Caught by Bancroft!! Buttler pokes at it and gets thick outside edge to third slip. Bancroft takes a good low catch and Cummins bags his first wicket.

Over 97.1 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to Ben Stokes, out Caught by Paine!! A loose shot from Stokes as he chased a wider length ball that was angling across him. Both the southpaws had missed these quite a lot of times yesterday and even today but there is a faint nick on this one as Paine pouches it.

Over 104.1 Nathan Lyon tossed up delivery to Rory Burns, no run, out Caught by Paine!! Burns pokes as he has all through this innings, but for a change, ends up getting closer than usual on this - nicking through to the keeper.

Over 104.6 Nathan Lyon tossed up delivery to Moeen Ali, out Bowled!  Moeen's brain exploding as he sees this ball drifting into off and middle because he leaves only for it to explode bang into the middle of off.

Over 105.5 PM Siddle bowls a good length delivery to JM Bairstow, out Caught by Warner!! Bairstow's form just doesn't allow him to he flashes hard, with the ball bouncing just a tad extra to fly off the top-edge to a reverse cupping first slip.
