Commentary

  , Anderson to Watling, no run,
  , Anderson to Watling, no run, touch fuller, more of a bent front knee to keep this out

  , Broad to Anderson, no run, fuller and Anderson drives again, gets a thick inside edge into his front pad
  , Broad to Anderson, no run, tightens the line and this is just blocked back to the bowler
  , Broad to Anderson, FOUR, not quite as full and Anderson just blocks, opens the face a little to steer it out to third man
  , Broad to Anderson, FOUR, stays around the wicket, fullish length just outside off, Anderson leans into a gorgeous drive and times it perfectly past mid-off, still a good deck this
  , Anderson to Watling, no run, similar line but none of the movement and Watling calmly defends this back up the wicket
  , Anderson to Watling, no run, this darts back and takes Watling in the gut, ouchie, sharp nip from Anderson
  , Anderson to Watling, no run, fuller and back towards off stump, this is blocked coming forward
  , Anderson to Watling, FOUR, foot outside off, Watling plays a rather loose dab at it and gets an edge but it lands well short of the keeper and skips past him for four to raise a battling fifty, excellent defiance here

  , Broad to Watling, 1 run, touch straighter, this is dabbed up through midwicket for an easy single
  , Broad to Watling, no run, full ball angled in, cry for lbw with Broad thinking this is pad first, umpire Erasmus thought it was bat and England decline a review. Good decision because the ball was nowhere near the pad!
  , Broad to Watling, 1 no ball, two feet wide of off stump, full length, this is left alone. No-ball here for having three men behind square on the leg side
