Abdul Razzaq to Davies, FOUR, top shot...perfect from Davies as he leans into a cover drive and threads it through the off-side field. No stopping it.

Abdul Razzaq to Davies, no run, real aggression this time as he charges down the pitch but then misses his attempted thrash through the covers

3.5

Abdul Razzaq to Davies, FOUR, poor line, outside leg stump and flicked away past short fine-leg and deep square has no chance to get around...looks like there's plenty of runs on offer today
