14.6

Dawlat Zadran to Wright, no run, slower ball again, touch of the Dernbachs as it comes out the back of the hand, Wright picked up but slammed his drive straight back at the bowler, its hits Dawlat's boot and deflects to mid-off - dot ball and a grin from Dawlat

19.5

Dawlat Zadran to Bairstow, OUT, slower ball, full and at the stumps, clears the front foot and miscued towards long-on, who takes a solid running catch - the batsmen crossed, though, so Wright will be on strike

19.6

Dawlat Zadran to Wright, 2 runs, low full-toss, gets under it but the ball comes off the bottom part of the bat, loops out towards wide long-on but the fielder gets round, so they can only scamper two and Wright is stuck on 99 not out!
