Tait to Patel, no run, 143.6 kph right away, and it takes off from short of a good length just outside off stump, he has a poke at it, and gets bat out of the way belatedly as it zips past him

Tait to Patel, SIX, my goodness, that is murdered, Shaun Tait bowls one at 148.5 kph, but Hiral seems to be enjoying this battle, stays on the crease and thumps it over extra cover, one leg in the air in cavalier fashion as he does that, and the connection is so neat it goes all the way


Tait to Patel, 1 wide, Tait sprays it down the leg side, trying to go for the bouncer in to the body
