This is just not cricket

Andrew Strauss was the first to fall, in the second over, as he sent Ntini to Jacques Kallis for a duck. Then Pollock struck, as Robert Key fell lbw for 9, playing and missing at a straight one he was attempting to work on the leg-side. 16 for 2 soon became 20 for 3 as Marcus Trescothick played Ntini completely outside the line and his off-stump cartwheeled backwards for 7.

He was Ntini's 24th victim this series, and Ntini looked in determined mode to grab some more as, with 29 overs still left, Vaughan was left to ruminate on whether he made the right decision to set his team in defensive mode.

A live bullet from wisden...
