    Trott throws it away with a leg side strangle, his two specialties. TC's serial reverse-jinxing works.

    Because of his action, Swann is ten times the bowler when he goes around the wicket. This is a big part of why he's so much better to lefties but he's much better around the wicket to right handers as well. This means that either the footmarks aren't going to be a factor at all for him or - as we've seen throughout his career - they entice him into bowling over the wicket to get the most out of them for little to no overall gain in effectiveness, or even sometimes at an overall loss.

    That said, Lyon bowls a little too straight to really take full advantage of footmarks either IMO but they definitely help him more than they help Swann. And that's before we even touch on the fact that the difference in spin the two bowlers get is greater off the normal part of the pitch than it is out of the footmarks; they negate the spin advantage.

    Sheer laziness and/or stupidity. If you're in that sort of touch, you make sure don't get out like that.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).
