KJ O'Brien to Buurman, 1 wide, OUT, another wide, too wide, called one, Buuman wants to steal a bye, Niall O'Brien collects, and opts to run down towards the stumps and take them out instead of flicking a throw, the ploy works and Buurman, who was sent back by Bukhari, was caught short. He has to walk back
