Malinga to Jones, OUT, flat and quick, typical Malinga delivery, Jones comes down the track and gets hit on the pad, loud appeal and umpire Benson adjudicates in favour of the bowler, Jones was looking to get outside the line and clip it away towards fine leg but was done in by the extra pace of Malinga
