Tea - ENG 6/185 and in a bit of strife.

What a session - I was getting excited when Siddle removed the danger men Pietersen and Trott, but then we really let it slip for half an hour as Bairstow and Bell took control. Re-enter Siddle who removed Bell with a beautiful outswinger, then Prior threw his wicket away, handing Siddle his fifth wicket and leaving the hosts in a deep hole.

Disappointing session from Agar and Starc - way too short. Clarke needs to give his young spinner some protection on the cut.

All we need is a smidgen of support for Siddle here and we can finish this day well on top. Who would have thought?
