Stirling to Barresi, OUT, Review: Appeal for lbw, it's bowled on a good length, he walks across to turn it square, turns in, he misses, and is caught in front. Doctrove's the umpire, he raises his finger immediately. Barresi wants a review, but he's gonna have to go. That was out. Landed in line, struck him in line and was hitting middle and off.
