Tait to Khawaja, OUT, incredible, memories of John Dyson's athletic over the head catch there! Short on leg, mistimes his pull shot, O'Brien somehow manages to launch himself at square leg to take it in his left hand

Tait to Thornely, OUT, and that is out! In-swinging yorker catches him on the crease. Thornely raises his bat to suggest he'd hit out...looked to be going down leg anyway.

Tait to Lambert, OUT, comical, Lambert backs away to give himself room, but he ends up four feet wide of leg and Tait hits middle a third of the way up. Lambert didn't even bother swinging!
