Davison to Mishra, 1 run, Mishra advances to the flight of the ball and drives through mid on for a single

26.4

Davison to Kamande, no run, straighter this time, on the stumps and played back to the bowler

26.6

Davison to Kamande, 1 run, some poor lines here from Davison. Another one landed on the leg stump and Kamande goes for the comprehensive sweep through square leg. Only a single on offer though.
