Shot of the day
Too little has been seen of the real Joe Root in this series. The luxurious manner in which he leant into a cover drive in the fourth over of the day was a reminder of what he is made of.
Ball of the day
Nathan Lyon, unfairly maligned, had Kevin Pietersen in a terrible muddle from round the wicket in mid-afternoon. A ball which bounced and turned beat him all ends up, hit him on the pad but was missing leg.
Memory of the day
After hours of turgid pit-a-pat, Chris Woakes came to the wicket for his maiden Test innings, batting rather high at No 6 in place of the dropped Jonny Bairstow, and drove his first ball magisterially for four.
Moment of the day
Pietersen received a memento for becoming England’s leading aggregate run-scorer, though when Jimmy Anderson became the leading bowler he insisted on a low-key private ceremony.Reuse content
