  , Starc to Root, no run, pokes and withdraws at the length delivery outside the off stump. That teasing line and length
  , Starc to Bairstow, 1 run, solid forward defence into the covers off the front foot for a quick single and he's off the mark
  , Starc to Bairstow, no run, well outside off with the angle and he leaves it for the keeper

  , Starc to Bairstow, no run, angles it across from outside off, Bairstow lets it go
  , Lyon to Root, no run, goes back towards off now and defends the ball back to Lyon
  , Lyon to Root, no run, goes back and across to work it to leg, can't clear short leg
  , Lyon to Bell, OUT, Lyon's done it again, gets Bell this time! What has done Bell here, he came down the track to whack that down the ground, but Lyon pitched it shorter with some flight and Bell got a leading edge high in the air. Warner had just enough time to get under it running backwards from short midwicket
  , Lyon to Bell, no run, presses forward a bit and defends the turning ball to midwicket
  , Lyon to Root, 1 run, shorter on middle and leg and Root goes back to tuck it behind square with the turn for one

  , Starc to Bell, no run, errs past the batsman down the leg side this time
  , Starc to Bell, FOUR, some room outside off and Bell is looking so good now that he doesn't even have to reach out for it, drives that beautifully through the covers for his fifty
  , Starc to Bell, no run, covers his stumps and defends the incoming delivery back to Starc
  , Starc to Bell, no run, angles it in with a hint of swing towards the batsman, Bell lets it go
  , Hazlewood to Root, no run, this one's wider outside off, left alone easily
  , Hazlewood to Root, no run, what a beauty! This one angled in and pitched on off, but seamed away with good bounce to deceive Root completely and just missed the stumps too
  , Hazlewood to Root, FOUR, bit too full on the stumps and Root flicks that with his turning wrists to the midwicket boundary this time for four more. The crowd roars as Johnson dives to his right but can't stop it
  , Hazlewood to Root, 2 runs, errs towards the pads now and Root works it away to the backward square-leg region for two
  , Hazlewood to Root, no run, touch back of length on off, he rocks back to defend it this time

  , Starc to Bell, no run, wider outside the off stump, he lets it go this time
  , Starc to Bell, no run, back of length and coming in, he stays back to defend it
  , Starc to Root, 1 run, edge falls short of slip! It was just outside the off stump, he stuck his bat out around off and got a thick edge but that fell well short of Clarke at first slip
  , Starc to Root, no run, pretty full outside off and he punches it confidently, down to mid-off
  , Starc to Root, FOUR, outside off, he pokes and gets a thick outside edge to the third-man area where nobody is placed to save those four runs
