25.5

Kallis to Pietersen, OUT, a huge appeal and he's out! Pietersen's gone! A quicker, fuller ball which Pietersen tried to flick to leg and got the thinnest of leading edges which flew to Prince at point. Pietersen wasn't sure if it was lbw or caught, and though it didn't look as though he got an edge, the lbw was close
