On the first day, tea was taken 20 minutes early because the sun's reflection of the roof of a greenhouse was disturbing the batsmen.
Cork unsettled the bail and scored 4 runs (all run) but the fielders do not notice and did not appeal
Hooper stayed off from the field because of an injured finger and so could not bat above number 7
