Over 3.2 Josh Hazlewood bowls a good length delivery to Dawid Malan, out Caught by Carey!! Back of a length across off, keeping it in the channel, drawing the poke from Malan and maybe finding the outside edge and easy catch for keper.

Over 5.5 Josh Hazlewood bowls a good length delivery to Joe Root, out Caught by Warner!! 

Over 12.5 Pat Cummins bowls a pitched up delivery to Ollie Pope,1 run, gets forward and pushes into the gap at cover, is off the mark in a nice fashion

Over 26.4 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to Haseeb Hameed, out Caught by Smith!!  Hameed could have let it go on line, but the length forced him into a defensive stroke. The ball straightens ever so lightly to catch the outside edge and Smith gobbles it up at second slip .

Over 40.3 Mitchell Starc bowls a pitched up delivery to Jos Buttler, out Caught by Carey!! Good length ball across off stump which is close enough to make Buttler play. Actually it pitched around the middle stump and then deviated off the seam for the outside edge and easy catch for Carey.

Over 43.1: He is Caught. Cameron Green to Chris Woakes,

Over 44.3 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to Ollie Robinson, out Caught by Carey!! Pitches it right up outside off, inviting the drive. Robinson takes the bait, goes after it, edges it behind.

Over 48.3 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to Mark Wood, out Caught by Marcus Harris!! Tries fending it off, but the short ball gets too big on him and it pops up off the handle into the hands of short leg. Dolly for Harris

Over 50.1 Pat Cummins bowls a good length delivery to Chris Woakes, out Caught by Hazlewood!! Woakes as he looks to pull. He's not in any control of it. Flies to the left of Hazlewood looks like it'll drop in front, but he dives across after running a fair distance and plucks it just above the ground.
