8.4

Holder to Samson, OUT, It was short of a length and Samson looked to swipe this down the ground, but the ball got big on him. The ball takes the top edge and balloons high into the air where Ashwin at midwicket comes around and takes a simple catch. The umpires were concerned if the ball had hit the wires of the spider cam, but all is well
