Michael Clarke has defended Phillip Hughes against Ian Botham’s accusation of cheating and also cleared Ian Bell for not walking to a ball he was later shown to edge. Hughes was unsure whether he caught Alastair Cook at short leg, momentarily celebrating the dismissal before asking whether it had carried.

Cook, who was on 99, stood his ground and stayed when the replays showed the ball bouncing in front of Hughes. Botham was quick to criticise Hughes while commentating on Sky Sports. “Terrible,” he said. “Cheating. How much do you want it to bounce into your hands? He knows he hasn’t caught it.”
