4.5

Tait to White, OUT, The bad luck combined with poor batting continues for White. Tait pitches it short on the leg stump and White looks to glance it away. He got a glove on it and the umpire doesn't give it. However on consultation with the third umpire, he changes the decision and sends White on his way. Poor tournament for him
