19.2

Bates to Collingwood, 1 run, OUT, nearly a yorker, dug out into the leg side, and he wants a second, and here's a schoolboy error from the man who made a career out of eliminating mistakes. Collingwood takes it easy, doesn't slide the bat in, and his body is over the crease but only in the air when the bails come off. This habit he must have acquired from his former captain at Delhi Daredevils, Virender Sehwag

PD Collingwood run out 38 (43m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 140.74

Perth Scorchers 133/6   PD Collingwood 38 (27b 5x4)
