42.5

Finn to Kohli, no run, banged in short on middle and Kohli went for the pull but couldn't connect, Finn appeals but the umpire doesn't think it's out. They've asked for a referral. Did it go off the glove? Hot Spot didn't capture anything, the side angle doesn't show any contact with the glove. The front angle gave us the impression that there might have been some contact with the glove but the side-angle put that impression to rest. Not out.

42.6

Finn to Kohli, FOUR, dropped, should go down as one even though Ian Bell didn't get a hand to it, he ran in too far, length ball and Kohli was targeting the long-on boundary, connected but not as well as he would have liked and Bell ran in too far and it went over his head, and landed inside the ropes
