3.1

Lee to Davison, no run, goes for a swipe at this back of a length ball outside off stump, and Lee gets the outside edge, but it falls way short of Haddin

3.2

Lee to Davison, no run, creamed off the front foot with lovely timing, but drives this full ball straight to Watson at short extra cover

3.5

Lee to Davison, OUT, that will do for Lee, and that will be the end of John Davison for one final time, the slow bouncer from Brett, got Davison in an awkward position as he tried to go for the hook, the ball took the glove and lobbed away to Haddin who pouched it
