Hira to Katich, OUT, timber. Katich has shuffled too far. He just keeps going across to a straight delivery, allowing it free passage to clip the leg stump. Just like S Marsh and S Katich the other day, these two are gone in the same breath after slow starts. You can't eat up so many deliveries and then get out. Oh, that hit the thigh pad, and deflected back towards the stumps
