Tait to Bailey, 1 wide, what exactly is Tait trying to do? He bowls one ten feet outside the off stump. Credit to Manou that he gets to the ball

Shahid Afridi to Bailey, OUT, and the partnership is broken. Afridi bowls a quicker one on the middle stump. Bailey looks to cut and is beaten. The ball hits the flap of the front pad and Manou fumbles with his take. Bailey's momentum carries him forward and Manou is quick to whip the bails off. He is out either way and is adjudged LBW
