Shafiul Islam to Guptill, SIX, that's a golf swing and Guptill's made tremendous contact, he came forward and carted the ball high and far over long-on, that ball took ages to land in the stands

Mashrafe Mortaza to BB McCullum, SIX, what sort of shot is that? McCullum charged the bowler, Mortaza dropped it short outside off stump and McCullum played a tennis fore-hand from above his head over the long-off boundary. And it's not a small boundary either
